Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Kanab - The Cabin At Purradise

New! 2 Bed, 2 Bath, Full Kitchen, Fireplaces, Living Room, W/D

The Cabin features two private bedrooms with private bathrooms, a complete and stocked kitchen with full sized refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave and dishwasher (who wants to clean dishes on vacation?). The living room has a gas fireplace, leather sofa and love seat and flat screen TV with satellite service. Each on-suite bathroom features a full sized tub/shower, heated floors, lots of storage and cultured marble counter top vanity. All shower and bath products (soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer) are included. Each private bedroom has a Queen sized bed, armoire for storage and a beautiful view of the cliffs. A full sized washer/dryer is located in the laundry room so you can cut down on your packing - just wash and go here. There is free high-speed WiFi internet available. Safety features include fire/smoke/CO detectors, fire extinguishers and security lighting.

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.

Sit back and enjoy the amazing views from your 40' x 6' covered porch or gather around the wood burning fire pit which is available for your use weather permitting and whenever open fire restrictions are not in place. Please inquiry before using.

Please note that the entire Cabin 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 cabin in 2015

Why Larry Erdman chose Utah

We built our home and the cabin 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 cabin unique

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

Very, Very nice

  • 5 of 5

First of all this was our first time to stay at a VRBO rental, I will say Larry set the bar very high for any other rentals we stay at. The cabin is in a nice quiet location. It is very well supplied, everything we needed was provided. The cabin itself is extremely nice. Larry met us when we arrived and showed us around the cabin. The cabin was very clean, the mattress on the bed was nice and firm. The location is low traffic so it was easy to take our dogs for nice relaxing walks down the road. If you are looking at Kanab I would highly recommend The Cabin at Purradise.

Excellent cabin and location

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with our stay at Cabin in Purradise. Very new (still working on landscaping) and clean. The only thing we would have liked that wasn't provided was a nonstick skillet for frying an egg. There was a lot of attention to detail put into this rental and the owner lives next door so he is handy if needed. Of our three rentals on our trip to Utah and Arizona, this was by far our favorite. The location was beautiful, private, and centrally located to so many things to do.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and helpful information! I will definitely look for some non-stick cookware and hope you'll be able to return and fry up some eggs! Larry

The Cabin at Purradise is stunning; both inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, the cabin was extremely clean, spacious, and organized including a kitchen stocked with all the comforts of home. It was nice to have the flexibility and option to prepare meals at the cabin instead of sitting in a restaurant, especially after a long day of hiking! The decor is new and suits the cabin-like feel perfectly.

The area is quiet, private and the views are incredible!

Larry, the owner, genuinely cares that his guests have a positive experience. This was our second stay at Purradise, and Larry was so welcoming and attentive to our needs during both visits. We are already looking forward to our return visit to The Cabin at Purradise in March.

The Cabin in Purradise is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My two girlfriends and I rented the cabin for our stay in Kanab during our volunteer experience at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. The cabin was great, and we had everything we needed! I totally recommend it to anyone wanting to stay just a little out of town. The stars at night are amazing, and the veiw of the red cliffs awesome. Beds were very comfortable, kitchen had everything you need for cooking meals at home. Great experience, can't wait to stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for all the great work you all do at the sanctuary and back home with all the different rescue groups that you support. It may take a bit, but hopefully, you'll be able to do that horse sleep over on your next visit!

What A Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took a 3 1/2 week vacation to Utah in September. We decided to book six days of rest midway through our trip at "The Cabin at Purradise". What A Pleasant Surprise!

The cabin was immaculate, comfortable and furnished extremely nice. Also, we loved the cabin location in Kanab. Yes, we left rested and wanting to return in the future.

Larry Erdman, the owner, is always available to provide recommendations during your stay which we greatly appreciated.

Thanks Larry for providing your wonderful cabin for rental on VRBO. We highly recommend "The Cabin at Purradise".

Blissful, Serene & Restorative ...

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two teen sons and I spent 5 blissful days and nights at Larry's Cabin at Purradise. We never wanted to leave. We loved it so much, we extended our stay for an additional two days. Larry is the most gracious host. When we requested advance info on hikes and volunteering at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, he promptly provided fabulous info. The cabins is perfectly situated in full views of glorious red rock cliffs. The cabin is gorgeous and the photos cannot do it justice. We found it luxurious for a cabin. It is beautifully decorated and it is immaculately clean. It is equipped with absolutely everything, including a washer and dryer, full kitchen, beautiful linens and a fabulous fire pit. Get up early in the morning and sit out back to see one of the most amazing sunrises anywhere. Be sure to schedule time to spend the day at the cabin as the peace and quiet will restore your soul. The location is ideal for visiting the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Vermillion Cliffs and Lake Powell.

Before you arrive, be sure to visit Bestfriends.org and consider volunteering at the nearby animal sanctuary. You can choose the animal group you wish to work with. Volunteer shifts are as short as a few hours and it is a very rewarding experience. Once you visit the Sanctuary (and it truly is a sanctuary) you will become an advocate for the largest no-kill animal shelter in the country. All of the animals here are LOVINGLY cared for. We volunteered to work at Dog Town and we had the pleasure of walking 7 endearing dogs, one of whom we are now in the process of adopting.

Remember to sit outside at night and drink in the quiet as you gaze at the Milky Way. Enjoy the jack rabbits as they dodge around the neighborhood. Buy your groceries at Honey's Marketplace and indulge in a buffalo burger at Big Al's. Hike to the Toadstools outside of Big Water on your way to Lake Powell. In Kanab, hike to the dinosaur tracks near the Port of Entry. Larry provides a binder filled with tons of great info including these hikes. His hospitality was unparalleled.

Enjoy your stay !!!
