Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Stewart's point, located right outside of center of Kanab, has awesome views-mesa views at the front of the house, and backyard view of the Red rock cliffs. Kanab is 80 miles from the north Rim of the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon national parks. It is 40 miles from Zion National Park.

The property has a 160 sq foot deck off the master bedroom with stairs into the backyard patio (see below). This has views of the Powell abutment of the grand canyon and the entire valley of Kanab.

Along with great views, SP now has great wifi! South Central Communications is building a fiber optic network, and in February 2016 i was lucky enough to be among the first houses to get it. I have the largest bandwith, 1Gig, and it is speedy! Because the wifi is now legit, the house has a google chromecast in the living room for streaming content (netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime, etc.) and music streaming via a Jambox.

This is a large bi-level house, over 2,500 sq feet. The property is 1.9 acres, with over an acre between the neighbors on both sides. Very quiet. Because of its location, you can likely see deer at dawn and dusk, and local bunnies abound. I have great pictures of deer on the driveway 10 feet from the house - unfortunately not high enough pixels for the site, but will happily email anyone who wants to see them. They look like they are ready to walk in the front door ! :)

Now that the basicsarecovered, here is some more information on the house:

1) On the top floor - a spacious Master in excess of 600 square feet, with a King Bed , DirectTV and a separate Conversation area with a pull out leather futon.

Attached to the master is a completely new master bath with a spacious shower, dual sinks and a brand new Jacuzzi jet sunken tub which overlooks southern Utah. There is also plenty of room to set up the portable crib / air mattress(es) in the master suite.

The top level also includes a large dining room/living room, with a 55" plasma TV, Chromecast, DirectTV with DVR. This room has large picture windows with canyon and mesa views. A kitchen with breakfast counter and bar stools adjoin the dining room. There is a second full bath on the top level.

The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, etc., and has a reasonable supply of basics (sugar flour, oil, spices, etc.) After 5 years as a vacation rental, i am fairly confident i have everything you might want - from place mats to a coffee maker and coffee supplies, to a high chair for the smallest eaters.

From the top level you can walk two steps down to the fenced backyard and patio with BBQ.

2) Downstairs: There are two bedrooms and a third full bath.

Downstairs bedroom number 1 : This room has cedar paneling and contains a queen bed and sleeper sofa and also has a TV/DirectV/DVD player. (see 'downstairs bedroom number 1' photos)

There is a second bedroom , with another queen bed, which includes a laundry area . The laundry room is enclosed by floor to ceiling curtains to provide a roomier and cozier feel to the space., and there is a privacy screen between the two bedrooms to provide privacy between the rooms. (see 'downstairs bedroom number 2' photos)

Please note: The two bed rooms do adjoin - you enter and leave the downstairs bedroom #1 through bedroom number 2. .

I have recently acquired two new adult beach cruiser type bikes and two helmets you are welcome to use.

To me, good night's rest is a high priority while on vacation. All mattresses are high quality and NEW - pillow top Serta Mattresses. All of the towels and linens are high quality.

About stacy lawson

I came to Kanab over 15 years ago on a western state road trip to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and see Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. It was in August and nearly every hotel was booked,. Despite the crowds, my friends and I fell in love with the town's charm and the incredible natural beauty of the town and the surrounding parks. We cut our time short in Las Vegas to stay longer and really get to know the area.

stacy lawson purchased this house in 2005

Why stacy lawson chose Utah

I have a house in Kanab because, over the years, i have continued to come back again and again to enjoy the scenery and solitude and i fell in love with the views from this house. I also saw the (fun?challenge?) in remodelling and updating its (original)1985 decor.

What makes this house unique

The property abuts a large rock cliff and has views of the mesas and the powell abutement of the grand canyon. The house is less than 2 miles from the center of Kanab, so you are close to the highways to the national parks, and close to the restaurants and amenities in town. It is 7 miles from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kanab is super central and we highly recommend it! The bed in the master bedroom finally helped me get amazing nights of sleep!

Great View, Huge Home, They've Thought of Everything

  • 5 of 5

This home is situated on a bit of a hill so you get a great panoramic view of Kanab and the surrounding area. It made for some gorgeous sunrises and sunsets! There are huge windows in the living room and master bedroom so you can take it all in. At night, the sky is just lit up with so many stars! The place is very conveniently located to Kanab so you aren't having to drive miles and miles to get good food. We visited Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks during our stay (as well as an overnight trip to the south rim of the Grand Canyon). The place is just in a great location. The home has tons of room, 3 bedrooms plus extra mattresses. Lots of bathroom space including a lovely renovated bathroom with a garden tub. The place had everything we could have needed. The directv and the big screen in the living made for a great end of day relaxation time. We had a great time at Stewart's Point!

Spacious, clean, and very well-stocked with accessories

  • 5 of 5

The house location is perfect. It is elevated and nestled up next to a beautiful Kanab red rock wall. The balcony off the master bedroom has a perfect view both at sunrise and sunset. When we return to Kanab, I will book this house again!

Owner's Response: thanks Marilyn. You were an awesome guest come back anytime. We try to keep the house pretty well stocked for guests. No one wants to arrive to a house with half a roll of TP, no hand soap, or need a pinch of salt or sugar or flour for their meal and have to drive to get it. :)

Gorgeous Backyard Views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here especially sitting at backyard table and enjoying the beautiful mesa behind the house. In the morning it was a special place to have a cup of coffee. The mattresses were very very comfortable which is really appreciated after a day of hiking etc. The house was well equipped and clean on arrival. We especially appreciated the fenced backyard for our dogs. The huge TV was great and the range of stations available. The location worked well for us for visiting the North Rim and Bryce Canyon. We took an off road tour to the Peekaboo Slot Canyon and Pink Sand dunes and highly recommend seeing them. Shopping in Kanab for groceries was easy with good selection. I did not give 5 stars due to the grounds being overgrown and the grill a small charcoal one. Especially recommended for families with dogs.

Owner's Response: March 2017 update ------- I am happy to announce the arrival of a new Weber Spirit gas grill at Stewarts Point! Weighing in at over over 130 lbs and professionally assembled, i think i have a sturdy solution for guest. ------ I also had some trees removed, the grounds cleared and regraded and the property tidied up. I am hopeful that the natural grass seed will fill out the bare landscape in the spring. ---------- Previous note: Hi.l am happy that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your feedback. Just a few comments. I am sorry you did not have a full size grill. I have found that the grills I can have shipped to Kanab and assembled there are not holding up, as the last one fell apart in September. The small charcoal was my choice to get something there immediately. I will be putting in something more permanent, or at least much more sturdy and factory assembled, when I am at the property in February. On the landscaping there is some tidying up to do I 100% agree. This summer had so much rain that things really took off. I have found someone to come out in February to do some landscaping and tree trimming/removal and the like. Thanks again ! Stacy

Location

Car: necessary

Approved for best friends animal sanctuary dog sleepovers. The property is 53 air miles from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon - from the property, you can see the Powell abutement of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. This is a great place for photography enthusiasts. I also have had several geologists and amature rock collectors visit the property.

For mountain biking enthusiasts, the kanab creek trail is a very near to the house and is a great ride. The information about local trails for bikers is included in the house
