Fabulous place to stay with your pooch.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Sugar Dog Ranch with our MinPin for 4 nights and wished we had booked it longer. The apartment was clean and had lots of room. Herb is very friendly and attentive. He pretty much covers all your needs and even volunteered to watch our dog if we wanted to tour Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. There is a red rock Canyon behind his home that can be hiked for miles. I would like to return with my grandkids to volunteer at Best Friends and if I do, here is where I want to stay. Missed meeting Alisa but the experience was awesome.

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a pet-friendly spot close to Best Friends and the parks with a full kitchen, and Herb and Alisa's place was perfect. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen had everything you would need to prepare meals, including good sharp knives and cookware that was just like new. It's a short, easy drive to Best Friends, and we were able to have a "sleepover" with one of Best Friend's very sweet dogs. We're hoping to visit the area again, and would love to stay at Sugerdog Ranch when we do.

Perfect Location, Wonderful People, Animal Friendly

  • 5 of 5

The was the perfect location for our week's vacation. Close to Best Friends for our two volunteer shifts, and the perfect base for our day trips to the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Park. Herb and Alisa are great hosts and the apartment is supplied with everything we needed. Next time I'll definitely take one of the Best Friends dogs for an overnight stay. We had a great time and can't wait to come back!

A Treasure in the High Desert

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sugar Dog Ranch for two weeks and it was not long enough. Our initial reason for visiting Kanab was to volunteer at Best Friends. We were happy to find such a wonderful accommodations. When we walked in it looked like we were walking into the photos presented on VRBO. So beautifully maintained, decorated and items to make us feel at home. We were fortunate to meet Alisha but for only a day. Wished we had more time to visit with her. Herb is a superb host. We enjoyed our many visits with him and John. Very accommodating and very knowledgeable about the area and the southwest. Was quick to deliver a heating pad and ice pack when my husband's back decided to give him some minor problems. The excellent accommodations, the beauty of the area and volunteering at Best Friends made our time at Sugar Dog Ranch unforgettable. We will return. Hopefully in a little warmer weather so we can take advantage of the wonderful screened in porches. Thank you Herb and Alisha.

Clean, quiet, every amenity included. Why stay in a motel room when you can have a whole apt?

  • 5 of 5

I can only say good things about my stay. I've stayed at the roadside motel in Kanab and it was noisy 24 hrs a day with light coming in the window all night. Here it's dark and quiet. Plus I had a living room, full kitchen, walk in closet, comfy bed, full bath with a roomy walk in shower. There were two screened in porches too. Essentially i had a full apartment for not much more $ than that roadside motel room. I was alone but if you're a couple you will relish all the extra room. Plus I could eat in for breakfast and after a big lunch out just make something light for dinner. The hosts are at your disposal via cell phone and gave me all the privacy I wanted, but readily answered my questions when I called. And I liked that they were just upstairs, which as a single female, made me feel very safe. This is definitely my go-to lodging when I return. Thanks Herb and Alisa.

Perfect Home Base

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sugar Dog Ranch! Herb was a gracious host and his apartment was perfect for 2 people+dogs. There is access to BLM land right behind the property to get a hike in close by. The apartment is close to Best Friends where we volunteered one day and close to many outdoor adventures! The apartment has all you need, stocked kitchen, towels, comfortable bed, and fenced outside space. 5 days was not enough, we were sad to leave.
