Beautiful,clean,homey,warm inviting. Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Herb and Lisa made our stay in Kanab beyond wonderful! We stayed 7 nights making their apartment our home base visiting many of the national parks around Kanab. They gave us local places to visit like the toadstool hoodoos, Johnson canyon and old paria. We hiked squaw trail right from town too. We ate breakfast every morning on the east screened porch and watched the antics of the humming birds defending the feeder like little star fighters. The bed was most comfortable, with a washer and dryer we should have packed lighter!. The whole apt. Is well equipped and the layout is easy to be in. We will be visiting again. As far as we are concerned in Kanab, Sugar dog ranch is the place to stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Helen and Craig, thanks for the review. It was so nice to have guests from our old home town and catch up on all the doings there. We hope the rest of your sojourn was up to expectations and you arrived home safe and sound. We will definitely look you up on our next trip to the Gulf Coast. In the mean time keep the wind at your back and the sun in your face. Herb & Alisa

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.
