St. George and surrounding area is full of outdoor activities, places to explore and visit, and entertainment. "The unique setting translate to family adventures, luxury spas, extensive shopping, championship golf and nearby outdoor recreation assets unlike anywhere else. In other words, fishing, climbing, canyoneering, biking, hiking, ATV and more — all in the unbeatable climate of beautiful St. George, Utah. Many of the annual events (St. George Marathon, Ironman, Tour de St. George Bike race) come right past the Whitehead Home. And St. George area can boast of 11 wonderful golf courses.
The Downtown Farmers Market at Ancestor Square (two walking blocks from Whitehead) is a free event, held every Saturday, from 8am to 12 noon in the parking lot at Ancestor Square, located at St. George Blvd. and Main Street in Historic Downtown St. George. The event is held every Saturday starting the second Saturday in May through the end of October. Need something to do with the children, easy 4 block walk to the Town Square. Town Square is more than just a park. It's a wonderful place to come alone and read a book or bring the family and play around. Have a nice picnic in the park on one of the picnic tables. Splash around in the splash pad and winding river. Ride the carousel, take a stroll along the walking path. Experience the culture of the flag memorial along with the art of the bronze exhibit, and visit the St. George Children’s Museum. The museum encourages its guests to touch, feel, play, and explore in the ten exhibit rooms. The rooms are designed to encourage interaction between adults and children. It is housed in an historic school. Then cross the street to Judd's General Store, for lunch, ice cream or pick out a bag full of your favorite treats you remember as a kid. Judd's is proud to be the oldest business in town...104 years and counting. It has been a favorite place of every kid in town since 1911.
In the nearby town of Santa Clara you'll find Tuacahn the outdoor theater. Usually 4 musicals to choose from along with guest musical and comedic entertainers. Tuacahn is so popular you may want to book an event before you arrive. In the same area is Snow Canyon State Park with beautiful visits and hikes.
A short drive east you can visit Zion's national park, with it's breathtaking beauty. Zion's has a variety of hikes, from a leisurely stroll to challenging downright scary. You just can't see and do everything in St. George in one trip. You'll want to come back, again and again.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: My husband and I grew up in the beautiful Napa Valley in northern California and moved to Utah in 1991. We fell in love with renovating old homes after we purchased a run down bungalow on the Provo river and spent a couple years completely renovating it into the charming "Springside Cottage (which can also be rented exclusively on VRBO). Now as owners of the historic Whitehead Home in St. George we look forward to making it a memorable place for others to enjoy. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!
Why the Owner Chose St. George, UT, USA:
Don't you just love the charm of old homes? This home has just undergone a remodel with over $90k being invested, but we are keeping the historical integrity while adding new and modern conveniences. In fact we just installed, new double ovens, microwave and dishwasher. St. George has so much to offer, yet still has the feeling of a smaller town. And this historic home has the best location possible for a traveler. This is in the 'Town Square' of St George. Within 4 blocks you can find 10 restaurants, galleries, historic sights, antique shops, 4 banks, ATMs, parks, museums, hair salons, library, and plenty of shopping. So much to explore just in the neighborhood, but you can also travel a close distance to Zion's National Park, Snow Canyon, Tuacahn Outdoor Theater, 12 golf courses in the area, swimming parks and so much more. The Whitehead Home is also on the St George ironman 70.3 course, Tour de St. George course, and is 2 blocks from the marathon course.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home was built in 1881, yet it has a stainless steel kitchenaid 6-burner cooktop and hood fan, new double wall ovens, microwave and dishwasher and updated cosmetics. We continue to update, decorate and and furniture and other items to make your stay easy, comfortable, and special. This property oozes character and is a great gathering place for up to 22 people. Perfect for family reunions, corporate retreats, sporting events, theater events, or home base as you discover the beautiful hiking & biking, golfing, day spas and shopping in St. George. It's located within walking distance of wonderful restaurants, antique shops, galleries, historic sights, summer outdoor market, and a splashed and park for the children.
