Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Stewart's point, located right outside of center of Kanab, has awesome views-mesa views at the front of the house, and backyard view of the Red rock cliffs. Kanab is 80 miles from the north Rim of the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon national parks. It is 40 miles from Zion National Park.

The property has a 160 sq foot deck off the master bedroom with stairs into the backyard patio (see below). This has views of the Powell abutment of the grand canyon and the entire valley of Kanab.

Along with great views, SP now has great wifi! South Central Communications is building a fiber optic network, and in February 2016 i was lucky enough to be among the first houses to get it. I have the largest bandwith, 1Gig, and it is speedy! Because the wifi is now legit, the house has a google chromecast in the living room for streaming content (netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime, etc.) and music streaming via a Jambox.

In 2017, the upgrades are - central heat and air system was replaced, brand new kitchen applicances (side by side fridge and ceramic top electric stove). Two new Kohler toilets also installed.

New appliances not currently reflected in the photos.

This is a large bi-level house, over 2,500 sq feet. The property is 1.9 acres, with over an acre between the neighbors on both sides. Very quiet. Because of its location, you can likely see deer at dawn and dusk, and local bunnies abound. I have great pictures of deer on the driveway 10 feet from the house - unfortunately not high enough pixels for the site, but will happily email anyone who wants to see them. They look like they are ready to walk in the front door ! :) If you search instagram with stewarts point as a location, you can see them (and some of my new amenities)

Now that the basics are covered, here is some more information on the house:

1) On the top floor - a spacious Master in excess of 600 square feet, with a King Bed , DirectTV and a separate Conversation area with a pull out leather futon.

Attached to the master is a completely new master bath with a spacious shower, dual sinks and a brand new Jacuzzi jet sunken tub which overlooks southern Utah. There is also plenty of room to set up the portable crib / air mattress(es) in the master suite.

The top level also includes a large dining room/living room, with a 55" plasma TV, Chromecast, DirectTV with DVR. This room has large picture windows with canyon and mesa views. A kitchen with breakfast counter and bar stools adjoin the dining room. There is a second full bath on the top level.

The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, etc., and has a reasonable supply of basics (sugar flour, oil, spices, etc.) After 5 years as a vacation rental, i am fairly confident i have everything you might want - from place mats to a coffee maker and coffee supplies, to a high chair for the smallest eaters.

From the top level you can walk two steps down to the fenced backyard and patio with BBQ.

2) Downstairs: There are two bedrooms and a third full bath.

Downstairs bedroom number 1 : This room has cedar paneling and contains a queen bed and sleeper sofa and also has a TV/DirectV/DVD player. (see 'downstairs bedroom number 1' photos)

There is a second bedroom , with another queen bed, which includes a laundry area . The laundry room is enclosed by floor to ceiling curtains to provide a roomier and cozier feel to the space., and there is a privacy screen between the two bedrooms to provide privacy between the rooms. (see 'downstairs bedroom number 2' photos)

Please note: The two bed rooms do adjoin - you enter and leave the downstairs bedroom #1 through bedroom number 2. .

I have recently acquired two new adult beach cruiser type bikes and two helmets you are welcome to use.

To me, good night's rest is a high priority while on vacation. All mattresses are high quality and NEW - pillow top Serta Mattresses. All of the towels and linens are high quality.

About stacy lawson

I came to Kanab over 15 years ago on a western state road trip to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and see Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. It was in August and nearly every hotel was booked,. Despite the crowds, my friends and I fell in love with the town's charm and the incredible natural beauty of the town and the surrounding parks. We cut our time short in Las Vegas to stay longer and really get to know the area.

stacy lawson purchased this house in 2005

Why stacy lawson chose Kanab

I have a house in Kanab because, over the years, i have continued to come back again and again to enjoy the scenery and solitude and i fell in love with the views from this house. I also saw the (fun?challenge?) in remodelling and updating its (original)1985 decor.

What makes this house unique

The property abuts a large rock cliff and has views of the mesas and the powell abutement of the grand canyon. The house is less than 2 miles from the center of Kanab, so you are close to the highways to the national parks, and close to the restaurants and amenities in town. It is 7 miles from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kanab is super central and we highly recommend it! The bed in the master bedroom finally helped me get amazing nights of sleep!

❤️ Stewart's Point

  • 5 of 5

Love coming to Utah, especially Kanab and Stewart's Point. Zion and Bryce National Parks were awesome. Great master suite and liked the new stove. Best of all was the family time at the house. Looking forward to our next trip. Tom and DAnna from Colorado

Very Enjoyable STay

  • 4 of 5

Three friends stayed at Stewart's Point as we were visiting Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and 2 national parks. We found the house to be very comfortable. The bedrooms were very nice and were a good size. The was more than enough towels and other items we needed. The kitchen also had all of the things you'd need to prepare meals. It is a convenient location and it is located in a very nice neighborhood. We enjoyed a sleepover with one of Best Friends dogs and were able to sit out back with a fully fenced in area. The deck off the bedroom was nice for morning coffee. The only 2 things I would say that needs some attention is the garage door is in need of minor repair at the bottom to prevent anything from coming in as well as there is a small gap in the front door that could use some attention. Other than that, it is a great place to stay and is very comfortable. Also, the owner is very attentive and replies quickly.

Owner's Response: Thanks Lisa I am at the house now (11/11) and have had the front door fixed. It is a large double sided door and it can get out of whack on occasion. thanks for letting me know. On the garage door gap(i inch by 3 inches on one side), it is a longstanding issue that is not a minor repair. There is a "mouse house" at the opening and that has kept any critters out of the garage. My mutt, who is part terrier, just gave the garage a clean bill of health ! :) I am glad you had a nice stay and appreciated the well stocked kitchen. I rented a house once in hawaii that had no hand soap, paper towels, salt or sugar and two sheets of TP. I found that super annoying. Thats not how we roll here. Thanks again for choosing SP!Stacy

Perfect spot with a fully-equipped house that was super!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! Of course, who could beat this fabulous setting? Two of our young adult children climbed up to the American flag at the top of the cliff behind the house. The WIFI and Chromecast were terrific. There were plenty of towels and supplies like toilet paper and paper towels. The master bathroom was especially nice. For our family of five this was just perfect and there were several additional mattresses plus a futon that we did not need to use. The owner even had a few laundry detergent pods plus dryer sheets which helped make this a true "home base" in the middle of a long vacation. We took day trips to Zion, Bryce and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon plus a short 2-hour visit to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab. It all worked out beautifully. We would recommend that if you really want to go to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon you NOT try to get to and from this house in one day. It would be over seven hours of driving. In our opinions, the North Rim was awesome. The temperatures in August were very comfortable plus the crowds were sparse. We wished we had time to use the bikes. Taking a walk in the neighborhood was incredibly scenic. Thanks so much to the owners for a great experience!
