Come stay at this charming historic 9 gable, 3 bedroom home in Panguitch. Built in 1897 it was constructed using bricks from the Town Kiln.

The space
The houses’ history includes stories of a stagecoach stop, a hotel, medical clinic, and even the sheriff’s house. You can go around back and down into the outside basement entrance to see the remnants of the old jail cell!

Aside from it's incredible history, the house is central to community folklore.

Local legend tells of federal agents spilling into town under the cover of night to hunt local polygamists. In an attempt to warn residents of their coming, Hanna Pace, the sheriff’s wife, would light a lamp and set it in the window, signaling all the men in the neighborhood to go into hiding.

And if you're the gunslinger type, you'll love the legend that wild west outlaw Butch Cassidy stayed here one night while being transported.

The home has been completely gutted and renovated maintaining it’s historic charm, with all of the modern luxuries you could hope for.

There are 4 large bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.. One bedroom is on the main floor and it has a private bath. The second floor has two other large bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other is a very large room with a queen bed and two twin beds. This bedroom also has a large private bathroom with a clawfoot tub. The two bedrooms on the second floor have large walk in closets. The fourth bedroom is a bonus room in the loft that has two twin beds as well as plenty of space for additional sleepers. We have two air mattresses if needed. Aside from the bedrooms the home includes two large communal sitting areas as well as a shared luxury kitchen, laundry room, dining room, and outside patio.

During the warm months, enjoy cooking with our grill and smoker or just relax in the evenings on the porch with an open fire while stargazing.

If you are really adventurous you can even go up on the roof balcony through the bonus room to star gaze. (rooftop balcony is temporarily closed).
