About the property

Private bedroom, full kitchen, fireplace, W/D, living room with sleeper sofa.

The Casita features a complete and stocked kitchen with full sized refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave and granite counter tops. The living room has a gas fireplace, sleeper sofa and flat screen TV with satellite service and DVD player. The bathroom features a full sized tub/shower with granite counter top vanity.

Safety features include a private entrance, fire/smoke/CO detectors and a commercial grade sprinkler system.

We are just minutes from a grand array of state and national parks, national monuments, national forests and many diverse wilderness areas. Because of the pleasant weather and the wide range of recreational activity found here, visitors often return and become permanent residents of our community. In addition to the many National Park and recreational options nearby, guests can hike trails right from their private porch ranging from flat to rolling and heart pumping, challenging climbs to the red rocked cliffs.

We are intensely committed to our environment and our planet and we recycle as much as possible (paper, glass, metal and plastic) and generate most of our energy via solar electric and thermal on-site. If you are interested in seeing any of the equipment, just ask and we are happy to demonstrate the systems.

The shared patio has seating for 6 and a propane fire pit which is available for your use weather permitting.

The private patio has its own wood burning fire pit that can be used whenever open fire restrictions are not in place. Please inquiry before using.

Please note that the entire Casita and property are strictly non-smoking.

About Larry Erdman

Having grown up in New Orleans, I've lived most of my life in Texas before moving to Kanab to volunteer and then work for Best Friends Animal Society.

I am a strong animal advocate, vegetarian and quiet individual.

Larry Erdman purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Larry Erdman chose Utah

We built our home and the Casita to enjoy the beautiful and peaceful surroundings while allowing for easy access to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, several national parks (Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon) and recreational areas (Lake Powell, Bryan Head Resort).

What makes this cottage unique

From the casita porch, guests can hike directly onto secluded BLM property, find Anasazi Indian artifacts, petroglyphs, wildlife and beautiful, expansive views.

Quiet good view location

  • 5 of 5

A view you can't get in town. Marvelous hike straight out the door up to fabulous petroglyphs. Very quiet and private. Owner attentive without being intrusive.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Very neat and organized casita. The location was excellent. We could make day trips to Bryce, Zion , Coral Pink Sand Dunes and of course Grand Staircase Escalante was in the backyard. Visited Best Friends Animal Society too. Thank you for everything.

Extraordinary location, outstanding host

  • 5 of 5

We found the Casita very comfortable and clean, with an extremely well-equipped kitchen. The location is extraordinary, with a stunning view of red rocks cliffs and blooming cactus right out the back door. We loved the hiking trail that started right in the back yard, as well. Larry was an outstanding host, very accommodating and responsive. The nearby town of Kanab is sweet with plenty of good restaurants. Being near to Zion, the Grand Canyon, and Best Friends made this an ideal location.

Delightful place to stay while vacationing in Kanab Utah

  • 5 of 5

Larry has thought of everything to make his visitors vacation stay peaceful, restful and in a beautiful location. The casita is spotless and has everything you'll need. The view from the Casita is magnificent. If you're planning a trip to the Kanab area I can highly recommend staying at the Casita. We would definitely stay at Larry's Casita again.

Perfect central location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed 9 nights at the casita. We hiked locally and visited Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon. I mountain biked in Hurricane and Red Canyon. Kanab is a nice small town with many conveniences. Larry was a perfect host. He provided valuable information about restaurants and parks. The Casita was spotless and well supplied. We would highly recommend these accommodations to anyone wanting a central location with privacy. If we are fortunate enough to return to the area we will definitely stay here again.
