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!!
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.
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 :)
Another Great Trip
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
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.
Thanks so much, April, it was wonderful having you here! Our resident donkey mascots, Donny and Chocolate Bear, say hello and want to know when you will be returning! ;)
We truly cherish respectful, fun and appreciative guests such as yourself!
Great home; accommodating owners
Thank you to Celeste and Nicholas for a fabulous time with my group's trip to volunteer at Best Friends Animal Society. The owners were always available for our questions, the accommodations were great, and everyone enjoyed our time there. We all agree though that the best part were the animals, both domesticated and wild. We heard the coyotes howling at night and watched a wild pheasant make himself at home in the front yard. The burros in back were as cute as could be. I would highly recommend this property for a group stay . We will be back!!
Thank you so much, sweet Michele and all the ladies who came to stay with us! Keep on shining your light and doing good for the world; it is appreciated! :)
house was nice bedrooms all clean and roomy kitchen was very nice and had plenty of house hold items
we all enjoyed are stay . The only thing thing we did not like is we had to leave are dog at home and found it a little uncomfortable to have home owners living at the house.
The person who booked this stay was quite nice. He confirmed with us before we even approved his inquiry that the house rules and the fact that we live on site were not a problem.
It is very important to us that our guests are well prepared and delighted with their stay, so we make sure that our house rules, including our no-pets policy and the fact that we live on site, is easily understood from our listing, our response to inquiries and our welcome message.
The person who left this review was not the same person who made the reservation. When she arrived, she had an unfriendly, abrasive demeanor.
She would not be welcome back, based on her rudeness and her readiness to leave an inappropriately low review instead of influencing the family to stay somewhere else more suitable to her demands.
Wild Hogs !
Celeste and Nicholas were the best hosts anyone could ask for.
We had 16 people and we had everything we needed and more.
The house is perfect for large groups and the views are spectacular.
Location is great for touring all the National Parks and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary which should not be missed.
All the dining recommendations proved to be excellent.
You won't find a better place or better people.
Thank you to Janet, Geof and the whole gang!! :) You are the tops!
