Interaction with Guests
We interact a great deal with our guests, often sharing breakfast time & offering expert advice on visiting this region. Sharing evening meals with guests, especially if they have a recipe new to us, is becoming a tradition here ~ especially when the garden is ripe!
Kanab, the "heart of the National Parks", is an authentic Western Legends town ~ a pioneer community surrounded by fabulous red rock buttes & hiking trails. From our quiet home, guests can walk into town for dinner, to see a classic Western movie at "The Barn" (where the Lone Ranger actually did stable his famous horse 'Silver' during filming) & for other pleasures. It's a small, friendly town & the stars at night here are considered some of the brightest and best in the world.
Kanab has the best outdoor adventure guides in Southern Utah. Canyoneering, horse treks, pictograph or photography tours ~ we know every guide and are happy to help guests set up special adventures.
Walk, ride a horse, bicycle or drive.
Other Things to Note
We enjoy pets and have a big fenced-in dog-friendly yard your dog can share with our friendly Doggie Co-Hostess, SNUFFLES. Guest pets must be dog & cat-friendly. We need to charge a slight $10 extra fee and do
ask guests to clean-up before leaving.
No smoking in the house, there is a garden & deck for those who need it.
Check-in must be after 3PM & before 9 PM ; call to confirm any delays (many guests under-estimate travel time so we are pretty flexible).
Please be aware that Utah and Arizona are on different times for 3/4 of the year. Arizona does NOT go on Day Light Savings Time and is therefore an hour behind Utah Time. So if you are coming from Vegas, Flagstaff or Sedona be aware you will lose an hour. Thank You.
What a pleasure it was staying in Laurel's home. She made us feel very welcome, was very flexible with our arrival time, and had great advice regarding what see, where to eat, etc. Kanab is the perfect location for exploring - there is so much to do and see, its hard to choose. And Snuffles, oh Snuffles! I recommend everyone stay here simply to be in the presence of this tiny but mighty Spirit dog! She embodies everything that is good in this world.
Staying at Savage Point was a great experience! We couldn't have asked for a better location with the proximity to the Grand Canyon (our primary goal) and many other national parks and sights. Laurel's (and Snuffles) hospitality highly exceeded our expectations! Her home is very lovely and quite comfortable and we would definitely recommend anyone stay there when visiting the area.
We had an outstanding experience with Laurel & Russell. The home was spacious and beautiful. Best of of all Laurel & Russell went out of their way to make sure we had all the information we needed to make our experience awesome. 5 stars all the way!
My wife & I stayed with Laurel on our road trip through Utah. We booked last minute & Laurel was very prompt with reply. Laurel & her husband were very nice & recommended local places to eat as well as providing maps & info on things to do around Kanab. We did not have a chance to stay for breakfast bc we left early for the Grand Canyon. Great place to stay !
We had a lovely stay with Laurel and Russell at Savage Point. Laurel is a wonderful host and a fount of information about what to do in the area. Thanks to her recommendations, we enjoyed the best of Kanab dining and went kayaking on Powell Lake (something we would not otherwise have though to do), as well as going to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
About the Host, Laurel
After living in Southern Utah for 4 years I still have so much more exploring to do here in this incredible region. Originally came from Northern California, miss the ocean and running thru the woodlands and coastal trails but the the science, geology, landscapes and everything else about the High Desert continually fascinates me now. Personally; I am a researcher/writer/ art historian and have worked in South America, Europe, Northern & South Africa, Greece & Turkey. I like to paint, hike, read, am a movie buff and enjoy our ever expanding garden (a couple from Moscow just proudly posed for photos holding our 22" Armenian cucumbers!) and most certainly our animals (the 3 audacious cats, a toss-me-on-my-belly-for -scritches adoring Cairn Terrier and our little Budgie Bird "Cloud"). Oriiginally fell in love with this region after rowing a 2-man dory down the Colorado River through Grand Canyon, followed that amazing venture by running Rim-to-Rim (26 miles) across the Grand Canyon - twice. Now, the Pioneer culture, art, literature, hiking and enjoying SW Utah/the Colorado Plateau still fascinates.
Russell and I enjoy meeting new people, sharing social and environmental philosophies and life experience. Russell was a Rock Musician in LA and abroad for 20 years, taught in a Music Conservatory in Helsinki, Finland and now in a certain shift of life, is a Park Ranger with Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. He knows both the Back Country and the paleontology of GSENM and other regional National Parks. We both definitely enjoy the cultural diversity of our guests and look forward to helping our guests enjoy their stay in the SouthWest.
