About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Located in the heart of the scenic red rock country of southern Utah and northern Arizona, Kanab provides the ideal base for exploring the national parks of the Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Glen Canyon/Lake Powell, and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, as well as a host of State Parks and other outstanding attractions.

Designed in 2011 by the owner, a local architect and landscape architect, this home provides luxury and stylish accommodation in an exceptionally tranquil setting, while only 5 minutes from the town center. The property offers open views of local red rock buttes, and the Kaibab Plateau on the southern skyline towards the Grand Canyon. The two driveways provide off-street parking for 3 cars.

The central open plan living room, kitchen, and dining area provide comfort and convenience in this state-of-the-art contemporary home.

The well-appointed kitchen offers new stainless steel appliances (gas range, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher), with new washer and dryer in the adjoining laundry, flat screen satellite TV in the living room, free wireless internet throughout. Tiled floors, atmospheric lighting, and large south-facing windows create a fresh and modern atmosphere. French doors from the living room and patio doors from two of the bedrooms access the south-facing patio.

Three bedrooms provide comfortable beds and ample linen, with large closet spaces, and easy access to bathrooms. The carpeted master bedroom offers a King Posturepedic with memory foam, and a tiled walk-in shower in the bathroom.

The home runs on 100% clean wind energy sourced thru Arcadia Power (www.arcadiapower.com), which is Green-e Energy certified and meets the environmental and consumer-protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. More details available on request.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review, Terri, and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. And I hope you will have the opportunity to stay again. I will have to update the photos of the front and rear gardens which, as you know, are now fully grown in with native plants. I did just authorize VRBO to refund your damage deposit. Best regards, Tim

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay while visiting Zion NP. Owners were very responsive when we had questions about the area or the house. This home is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood which made for a peaceful stay in Kanab.

great location and perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

Was in town to hike in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Thank you BLM, Forest Service and NPS for protecting this wonderful area for generations to come.

The house was perfect for our family of 4. Each teenager had their own room. Beautiful and light and contemporary. Will stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Mike. I'm glad that you and your family enjoyed your visit and Aspen House. We are very fortunate to live next to the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and many of us here are strong advocates for maintaining its current size. You might be interested to look into Grand Staircase Escalante Partners which is an excellent local support group for the monument. All the best, Tim

Perfect for our stay in Kanab

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Aspen House. Photos and description are accurate. It was clean, comfortable, quiet, and in a convenient location for our small group that was volunteering for a few days at Best Friends, which is about a 15 minute drive. We also enjoyed hiking several trails that were about a mile from the house. We hope to return and will definitely look to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks much for your review, Mark. Yes, we have several trails along the red rocks near the house and also on the north edge of town, and I provide the brochures with trail maps and descriptions. The only photos that are out of date show the front and rear gardens prior to landscaping and planting. I'll be adding those to my listing as soon as the native plants are in bloom again. I do hope you will be able to return for another stay, and Best Friends visit. All the best, Tim

Beautiful & spacious property

  • 5 of 5

This lovely property was a wonderful place to stay. Approximately 4 miles from the center of Kanab, it's in a quiet and well-maintained neighborhood, easily located (try to do this in the daytime, the initial visit). I stayed here with my Mom and 4 sisters, and we had plenty of room, 2 to each bedroom. There were plenty of towels, dishes, condiments, books, games, and other necessities provided to help make the stay more comfortable. We did not need to contact the property owner while we were visiting (since there were directions provided ahead of time and the property is well organized), but Mr. Clarke was available via telephone and quickly responded when I left him a message after our stay about an item left and needed to be returned to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (btw, for those of you visiting the Sanctuary, this property gives a Best Friend's discount and allows sleepovers for dogs and cats :-)).We really enjoyed our oasis while staying in Kanab and would recommend this property to future visitors.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your wonderful feedback, Carolyn. I'm so glad you really enjoyed your stay in Aspen House 'oasis'. I am always available for guests by phone, email or text before, during or after the visit. Many of my guests are Best Friends members who come to volunteer, tour the Sanctuary, and combine that with day trips to visit our outstanding nearby National Parks. I hope you can visit again ! All the best, Tim

Great property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property!!! The house is nicely appointed and has pretty much everything and anything you might need in a home. Great layout and nice comfy beds. Location is good - maybe 5 minutes, by car, outside of town. We were volunteering at Best Friends each day - approx 20 minute drive ... which was very doable. (In fact, we had a doggy sleepover one night - and had a great time with our dog in this home and walking her in the yard in back and the driveway area in front.). Tim, the owner, was very responsive to any of our questions. This visit was only four nights. We will be coming back for a longer stay later this year - and would be very comfortable staying here again.
