Property description

2nd largest home in Kanab on 3 acres with nothing but open country and spacious views behind. We call it the 'Burro Flats High Desert Lodge.' This home and location is so beautiful that it makes us happy when visitors enjoy it, too.

Two routers ensure GREAT, high speed fiber optic cable wifi Internet connection.

WE LIVE ON SITE in the lower level of the clean and bright, three level house, with our own, separate kitchen, bathroom and living quarters downstairs.

About 5,000 square feet is left available for guests to enjoy!

THE LAYOUT:

Take advantage of the large, furnished common areas on the main floor including:

~Fully outfitted, large kitchen
~Dining table (seats 10)
~Living room with 3 couches, 24 feet high ceiling, built in benches, large screen TV (200+ cable channels)
~Gigantic, 3-tiered, stacked 3-high picture windows (panel of 9 windows)
~Pool table
~Covered deck with bistro patio tables and seating for 12, electrical outlets, propane BBQ grill and sunset views
~Half bathroom

UPSTAIRS common areas include:

~Large, indoor balcony (mezzanine/loft) that's furnished as a lounging area with one full/double sized futon sofa sleeper.

~2 shared hall bath upstairs (one with shower and one with combination shower/bath).

~Closet with board games, cards, some sports equipment

The Bedrooms:

~Main floor master suite includes bathroom with shower and large, en suite jetted soaker tub for two, doored toilet area, 2 vanity sinks, large walk-in closet, king sized bed, 10 windows and French doors to the outside!

~Upstairs 'Cowboy Room' with double sized bed plus double sized futon. En suite PRIVATE BATHROOM with shower. Window with sunset views of open land and red cliffs behind property.

~Upstairs 'Girly Room' with queen sized bed plus very small sofa sleeper futon. Has its own BATHROOM IN THE ROOM with shower. Window with sunset views of open land and red cliffs behind property.

~Upstairs 'Peter Pan' room with queen sized bed plus single sized futon sofa sleeper (no closet; portable clothes rack and dresser provided). No view. Many quests feel that this is the most comfortable of our queen sized beds and request the Peter Pan room whenever they stay with us (others prefer different beds; everyone is unique)! Room includes hair dryer and mirrors.

~Upstairs queen sized bed in 'British Adventure' room with view, dresser (no closet), mirror, ceiling fan with bedside controls, mirror, hair dryer.

~Downstairs, simple room with queen sized bed, papa-San chair, small desk and chair and large, reach in closet (no doors on closet). Large daylight window lets in light, no views. This room is somewhat less desirable because even though the bed is exceedingly high quality and comfortable, there is no guest bathroom downstairs. Also, this room is next to our living quarters and we can sometimes be heard watching TV or talking. In addition, it is the only room with linoleum tile instead of oak hardwood flooring.

Note: Incidental furnishings or bedding colors may vary slightly from photos as we continually update, rearrange and improve.

THE AMENITIES:

~Basic toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash); best to bring if a particular brand is preferred.
~Hair dryers, curling iron, heated electric curlers
~Towels and washcloths
~Hangers in closets
~Removable nightlights in every bedroom and in shared areas
~Much more (as described in Amenities section of this listing)

THE LOCATION:
Rural yet within city limits. 5 minutes from city center. At least an acre between house and closest neighbor.

20 minutes from Best Friends Animal Society. A little over an hour from:

Zion
Bryce
Grand Canyon (north rim- OPEN SEASONALLY May 15-Oct 15)
Cedar Breaks (subalpine area, skiing)
Lake Powell/Page/Antelope Canyon/Horseshoe Bend

If you love Southwestern wildlife then you'll enjoy spotting quail, jackrabbits, cottontails and ground squirrels right on the property. Further in the distance you might see an occasional coyote or family of mule deer passing through!

NOTE: Guests will mainly only see us at check in, check out, if they have any questions, or occasionally in the common areas of the house. We're here if you need us; otherwise, we'll maintain a respectful distance.

THE RULES:
Absolutely no smoking or pets on property, inside or outside. No candles or fireworks of any kind on property.

Guests not allowed in the fenced donkey pasture.

We welcome guests of all ages, language, culture, heritage and lifestyle.

Please do not drive on front lawn that's closest to house (it's okay to drive on section of yard between gravel driveway and street). Please do not park in or block small, concrete driveway or garages.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hi! We're Nicholas & Celeste Meyeres and we adore the Southwestern high desert, nature, wildlife and meeting new people! Nicholas is our hospitality expert (before welcoming guests full-time in our home, he was a manager at both a top rated country club in Kansas for 6 years as well as the Hospitality Services manager for 10 years at Best Friends Animal Society)! Celeste, whose nickname is Crickets, is founder, owner, designer and one-woman-knitter (she's created and sold thousands of scarves, throw blankets, etc. including a shawl for Stevie Nicks to wear on stage while on tour with Fleetwood Mac)! In 2013 we bought a huge 'mini mansion' on a wild 3 acres with nothing but open country and spacious views behind. We call it the 'Burro Flats High Desert Lodge.' This home and location is so beautiful that it delights us when others enjoy it, too. We live in the downstairs of the three level house (the 2nd largest in Kanab), with separate entry, kitchen, bathroom, et cetera, so you'll mainly only see us at check in and check out (when we welcome you and then when we say 'Bon voyage, see you next time!')

Why the Owner Chose Kanab, UT, USA:
There is absolutely no other place like the southern Utah southwestern high desert. This area boasts honest, friendly people, breathtaking skies, colorful rock formations and unique and diverse plant and wild life. This is our home for life... and we invite you to make it your home during your stay with us!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We've both always dreamed of having a *huge* house with plenty of room for family get togethers on a private, uncrowded property space! As soon as we 'met' this house, we knew that it was perfect for us! We love sharing this once-in-a-lifetime find with others.
