The Bear Den is clean and well maintained. The views from the deck are breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us had a wonderful experience vacationing in Kanab and staying at The Bear Den for 9 days. The house was a welcoming place to come back to after busy days at The North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Bryce and Zion. The views from the deck were beautiful and we enjoyed mornings on the deck as well as watching the sunset. The house itself was roomy and very comfortable for the six of us. The town of Kanab was welcoming and we enjoyed the small shops there. Some of our group did the Kanab Zip Line and others took the ATV tour. We would highly recommend staying at the Bear Den anyone else interesting in vacationing in southern Utah.

Unsafe and smelled like a basement bar

  • 1 of 5

Owner has failed to respond to numerous messages therefore I am leaving a very disappointing review. Nothing has been done to this home in at least 50 years. Smoke detectors are missing from the bedrooms the smell of smoke is extreme. There is an abandoned box truck in the backyard, exposed wiring greets you at the front door. A vanity light fixture with glass bulbs is in a shower, extension cords are throghout the home running across walking paths. There is a dog door through the wall. There are some ok reviews of this home and I cannot understand how they are possible. We have stayed in many homes though this site and all have been fine except this one. We paid for a four night stay and left after 30 minutes after trying to air out the home. Owner has not responded to messages and has not provided a refund. You will be disappointed.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were very pleased with the home we stayed at. Clean and comfortable and very affordable. LOVED sitting by the fireplace in the evening and LOVED the deck during the day. Perfect for a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. If there is ever another event that finds us in Kanab, Utah we will definitely stay at The Bears Den again!!

Clean and well-provided, outdated

  • 3 of 5

Positive comments first; the property owners gave clear information on accessing the house, and operating its features. It seemed very clean. There were many things provided in the pantry, laundry room and kitchen which were useful. The setting is nice and very quiet.

However, when we first entered, we all noticed the odor of past smokers. As a former smoker myself, I easily detect it as it permeates the carpet, walls and furnishings. I know it is now a non-smoking property and probably has been for a long time, but it was noticeable.

The furniture and decor are pretty 70s-era, a bit dark and heavy to me. Beds were OK, a bit "bouncy" and the pillows could be updated. Two cold showers on our last morning there.

The house rules ask that you empty the dishwasher and return everything to its right place. Also that you return the furniture to its original position if you moved it. We certainly had no problem with doing that, as we had moved the couch and chair to face the fireplace instead of with their backs to it. The rule that asked us to wipe off the countertops, etc. was also no problem, until it came to the part about wiping off the toilet. Wouldn't the housekeeper be scrubbing and sanitizing it and include wiping it in his/her duties?

Our stay was not a bad experience, but it was disappointing.
