Overview

About the property

Private bedroom, full kitchen, fireplace, W/D, living room with sleeper sofa.

The Casita features a complete and stocked kitchen with full sized refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave and granite counter tops. The living room has a gas fireplace, sleeper sofa and flat screen TV with satellite service and DVD player. The bathroom features a full sized tub/shower with granite counter top vanity. A heated rack provides toasty warm towels as you step out of the shower. All shower and bath products (soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer) are included. A private bedroom has a full sized bed, closet and on-suite washer/dryer. There is free high-speed Wifi internet available. Safety features include a private entrance, fire/smoke/CO detectors and a commercial grade sprinkler system.

We are just minutes from a grand array of state and national parks, national monuments, national forests and many diverse wilderness areas. Because of the pleasant weather and the wide range of recreational activity found here, visitors often return and become permanent residents of our community. In addition to the many National Park and recreational options nearby, guests can hike trails right from their private porch ranging from flat to rolling and heart pumping, challenging climbs to the red rocked cliffs.

We are intensely committed to our environment and our planet and we recycle as much as possible (paper, glass, metal and plastic) and generate most of our energy via solar electric and thermal on-site. If you are interested in seeing any of the equipment, just ask and we are happy to demonstrate the systems.

The shared patio has seating for 6 and a propane fire pit which is available for your use weather permitting.

The private patio has its own wood burning fire pit that can be used whenever open fire restrictions are not in place. Please inquiry before using.

Please note that the entire Casita and property are strictly non-smoking.

About Larry Erdman

Having grown up in New Orleans, I've lived most of my life in Texas before moving to Kanab to volunteer and then work for Best Friends Animal Society.

I am a strong animal advocate, vegetarian and quiet individual.

Larry Erdman purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Larry Erdman chose Utah

We built our home and the Casita to enjoy the beautiful and peaceful surroundings while allowing for easy access to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, several national parks (Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon) and recreational areas (Lake Powell, Bryan Head Resort).

What makes this cottage unique

From the casita porch, guests can hike directly onto secluded BLM property, find Anasazi Indian artifacts, petroglyphs, wildlife and beautiful, expansive views.

Quiet good view location

  • 5 of 5

A view you can't get in town. Marvelous hike straight out the door up to fabulous petroglyphs. Very quiet and private. Owner attentive without being intrusive.

Purrfect Again!

  • 5 of 5

I just left from my 2nd annual stay in the Casita. It was amazing! The views and location are purrfect and Larry is a gracious host. The Casita was spotless and full of all of the gadgets and amenities that I needed for an extended stay. I made good use of the new shoe dryer; it was helpful after a long, wet hike in the snow. I am already planning my 2018 trip!

Perfect place to relax after a long day hiking

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Castita for three nights while exploring the Grand Canyon, Zion, and Bryce and it was perfect. The gas fireplace kept us warm along with the in-floor heating. I'm going to be investing in a heated towel rack after experiencing hot towels out of the shower first thing in the morning. When we return to Kanab to explore Zion, our favorite park, we'll be booking the Castita again for sure.

Purradise it was!

  • 5 of 5

Great little place only 5 minutes from all the restaurants and shops in Kanab! We drove up to this well-maintained property to our own little parking spot. Larry met us himself and gave us a tour of the casita. It was extremely clean and had great features like the fireplace, heated floors, heated towel rack and modern appliances. He really thought of everything. It was very well stocked - full kitchen with plates, cooking utensils, cleaning supplies, etc. and even shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the shower. We had camped for a couple days before reaching the casita, so it was nice to have a warm place to relax and even do our laundry (soap provided!). We didn't get to use the outdoor fire pit but the set up outside was spectacular too. Thank you Larry for your exceptional hospitality!
