About Celeste Meyeres

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!')

Celeste Meyeres purchased this house in 2013

Why Celeste Meyeres chose Kanab

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

A great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at a number of vacation rentals around the US and have never found one better than Burro Flats. Eleven adults stayed here for five nites and loved this large, beautiful home in the most gorgeous of settings. After each day of hiking in N. AZ & S. UT, it was a perfect place to refresh and rest up. The quiet rural setting provided lovely sunset views

and the night skies were spectacular. The gathering areas including the deck were spacious and pleasantly decorated. Each bedroom was large and the numerous bathrooms were appreciated. The two sweet burros were enjoyed by all of us as we watched their antics, mornings and evenings. Management, Celeste, was gracious and most congenial. She was available if we needed her, but never interfering.  We will recommend Burro Flats to our families and friends when they are traveling in the Kanab Area.

Owner's Response: It was a memorable and very pleasurable experience hosting these active, yet laidback guests! They were the picture of outgoing, appreciative and genuine. They were a perfect fit for our home and it was so enjoyable visiting with them about hiking, sustainable gardening, hearing about their lives and adventures, and even exchanging notes about bird sightings on the property! We can't say enough good things about these fabulous folks :)

It exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

An ideal lodging and location for five siblings and their spouses to visit three national parks: Zion, Pryce, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon on three consecutive days. Celeste, your home is fabulous and you are the perfect hostess! We appreciated all of the laundry, kitchen and bathroom supplies that were available. We are sorry that we did not get to meet Nicolas. We hope to return to your beautiful home and God’s awesome creations.

Owner's Response: The best part about our home during your visit...was YOU! Without “company” coming to stay, a home is just an empty box. We loved having such a kind and fun-loving group here, you treated us, our home and each other with respect and joy. Thank you again and you and yours are always most welcome back!

Lovely and practical property

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this House. Well stocked with everything you need, all essentials like utensils, utensils, napkins, extra tp, games, bathroom shampoo and else, and more. The house is close to Kanab, a few miles to the heart of downtown. It is also 80 miles or less to Bryce Canyon, Zion, and the Grand Canyon. We were a group of 12 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The 5 bedrooms gave our group plenty of room to spread out. The house had a spacious living room to all get together with games, movies, music, dancing and opportunity to enjoy relaxation after a day of hiking. The beds were all very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and the bathrooms had lots of extras to make everyone feel at home.

On top of all that the owners Celeste and Nicholas were very friendly, giving us a great welcome, answering questions, and always there if we needed anything. I totally recommend this property for group of friends or family who want to enjoy the beautiful South Utah and North Arizona area.

Another Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our group has rented this beautiful home. Just as we experienced the first time, everything was perfect. We had a group of 8 adults volunteering at Best Friends Animal Society and we were very comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms are well equipped; Celeste and Nicholas have thought of everything! Thank you both for another memorable trip. We'll see you again soon!

Grand house, grand hosts, grand location

  • 5 of 5

Full disclosure, I am in love with the burros so I saw Burro Flats through rose colored glasses. Seriously though, what a lovely place. I enjoyed the decor from the billiards room to the British Invasion room to the back patio! It was all very clean and well stocked. I liked the large shampoo, body wash ... Plenty of towels and extra blankets.

The hosts, Nicholas and Celeste were a very gracious and, might I add, interesting couple. As hosts, they were available but not hovering. I actually liked that they lived on site (on the lower of 3 floors) as I was alone on this leg of my trip.

I am already cooking up family re-union possibilities. The home is beautifully situated in a meadow with red rock cliffs nearby and the location is very convenient to Kanab and all of the parks. My favorite, Zion, is just half an hour away. Best Friends is just 15 minutes away.

I found it a warm and comfortable place to stay- a perfect option for a party of one or party of ten.
