Interaction with Guests
We interact a great deal with our guests, often sharing breakfast time & offering expert advice on visiting this region. Evenings, our comfy TV room with woodstove is open to guests ~ we enjoy sharing movie time (often with homemade cookies or popcorn).Sharing meals with guests, especially if they have a recipe new to us, is becoming a tradition here ~ especially when the garden is ripe!
Kanab is an authentic Western Legends town ~ a pioneer community surrounded by fabulous red rock buttes & hiking trails. From our home, guests can walk into town for dinner, a classic Western movie at "The Barn" (where the Lone Ranger actually did stable his famous horse 'Silver' during filming) & other pleasures. Small, friendly, quiet & the stars at night 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 well, 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 don't charge an extra fee, but 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.
It's our first airbnb experience and we are lucky to stay here. Laura and Russel are really cool and friendly. And at the 1st day, we really wanted to watch a special football game between NCSU and UCF. They are so nice to hand over the TV remote to us and leave us the privacy of watching the game. I will be stay in the same place if I ever come back to Kanab.
Because we changed our schedule very suddenly, so very pity that we couldn't make it this time... Hope to stay here last time~
Kanab is a half-way point between where I live and a destination I travel to in Arizona so I stay with Laurel and Russell frequently. I have honestly lost count of the number of times I have stayed at Savage Point but the quantity is not what's important, its the quality of the accommodation. I have to say, in all the times I have visited, I have never been disappointed. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable place to stay, this is it. Laurel's breakfasts are both delicious and healthy and made from fresh ingredients often grown in their own garden. I'm hooked.
I had so much fun staying with Laurel and Russell! What a little paradise they've created... It was a really pleasant surprise, with a garden, fountains, and, well, a 3D tv that we watched movies on :) Such a treat! Next time i'm in that neck of the woods, er, desert, I'll be sure to stay with them :) Zion, the Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Lake Powell, Antelope Canyone...wowwwwww
We really enjoyed our stay and enjoyed getting to hear more about the region including history and things to see. Thanks Laurel!
Laurel, Russell, and Snuffles couldn't have been more accommodating. We loved waking up to Snuffles in the morning and then having one of Laurel's wonderful homemade breakfasts. Which usual consist of fresh ingredients right from their beautiful garden!
Laurel writes travel guides and Russell is a park ranger so they are very knowledgable about the surrounding areas. Make sure to take advantage of it!
Can't wait to come back and visit again.
Our whistle stop overnight stay with Laurel, Russell and adorable Snuffles was a tonic! From our hosts genuine welcome in the early evening to a lovingly prepared and tasting breakfast by Laurel ... the homegrown honey dew melon sublime! The guest accommodation is perfectly described, so good that we overslept. We would have loved more time to have had a sauna and taken time out in the beautiful and bountiful garden, hopefully next time. Kanab and Savage Point B n B are absolute gems!
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.
