Overview

Kanab House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, near Town Center, Sleeps 10

The recently renovated Cross R Ranch house is a historic 1929 Craftsman Bungalow located in colorful Kanab Utah.

The home was on Kanab's 2011 Historic home tour.

The house is located two blocks from downtown Kanab on nine tenths of an acre. The home was built in 1929 by Brigham Adelbert Riggs Jr. a member of one of the first pioneer families in the area. A Rancher, as well as a stonemason by trade, he molded each brick from the red clay found along the Kanab Creek.

The house includes four bedrooms (three with queens, and one with two twins), and a bath, a fully equipped kitchen, dining room (table will expand to accommodate 12) and living room on the main floor and the second level has a bedroom suite with a queen bed, sitting area with futon and new bath. Guests can relax on the front porch or on the patio area where they can grill and enjoy the mountain views.

Starting in the 1920's to the 1990's, hundreds of movies and TV series were filmed in the Kanab area.

Director William Wellman allegedly named Kanab Little Hollywood because of the willingness of local residents to appear in his films. Many Riggs family members had that opportunity. On a quiet night guests can settle in and enjoy watching some of the films on DVD.

Kanab is a perfect base from which to explore Southern Utah. The North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary are just a few of the many scenic areas to visit. A special time to visit Kanab is during Western Legends Roundup usually the last weekend in August.

For large groups, consider renting the Muriel's Place( http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p352107 ) in addition to the Cross R Ranch house. They are on the same block, one house apart.

About Dianne Riggs or Lynn Riggs

Brigham Adelbert Riggs Jr., a carpenter, mason, and rancher, the son of Brigham Sr. and Rachel Ford, built this craftsman bungalow with gable roof. He and his family made the bricks form the native soil found in back of his father’s house across the street near the Kanab creek. He cut the native stone for the foundation and window sills.

Delbert, his wife Miriam Chamberlain, and their six children moved into the home in 1929. His only son, Elson, was 17. After Miriam died in May of 1944, Elson moved back into the house with his wife, Ida Sarah Ward. The home is now owned by Elson’s and Ida’s twin sons Lon and Lynn.

Elson, a surveyor and rancher, also operated a shoe shop in Kanab. Ida didn’t like the way sand blew into the house under the French doors, so she replaced them with windows. Elson searched for and found the same location where his dad had cut the sills for the rest of the house and cut out the sill for the new window like his dad had shown him.

The home is now owned by Elson and Ida's two sons.

Dianne Riggs or Lynn Riggs purchased this house in 1929

Delightful place to come home to!

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us who shared this comfortable, well furnished, cozy home. We volunteered at Best Friends that weekend. It was so welcoming to come home to after a day at the Sanctuary. Will stay here again!

Just a couple items need some attention: the lamp in the living room would not turn on and the shades in the bedroom with the twin beds would not stay down. Otherwise everything else was perfect!

Kanab weekend

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful Kanab home for a 3 day weekend and we really enjoyed the comfort and the historic feel of the home. It is quite a charming home, stocked with plenty of linen, kitchen essentials..........and lovely antique furniture that the owners are so trusting to leave with visitors. The location is excellent - within walking distance to town and it is located in a nice quiet street. The owners were very easy to 'work' with and the home was very neat and clean. We felt we were "at home" as we walked in. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone visiting Kanab and the surrounding National Parks.

Annual Best Friends Visit

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I decided to rent a house on our 4th annual trip to volunteer at Best Friends. This was the best decision we ever made in staying in Kanab. We found this home to be everything we expected and more. We immediately felt at home when we walked through the front door. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the sun set after volunteering in Angel's canyon at Best Friends all day. We walked everywhere in town. The location is perfect. It was wonderful to stay in a very well kept home with full amenities. I thoroughly enjoyed having my own suite on the second floor. We are definitely coming back to this wonderful home next year.

Excellent accomodations in the heart of the parks

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this lovely home for a week. Everything was just as advertised, everything we used worked and everything was in good repair. The house was clean and neat and obviously well loved by the owners. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. Easy walking distance to the grocery store, the small shops of downtown Kanab and great location for day trips to visit Bryce, Zion, Grand Staircase, Kodachrome and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon as well as other parks and attractions in the area.

We were very comfortable using the upstairs room - this gave us the best view of sunrise, which was stunning each morning. We loved the dining room and living room downstairs and used the laundry facilities in the basement. It was incredibly cozy and a superb value at the price charged. For our personal enjoyment, a flock of wild turkeys came through the yard each day around 8:30 a.m. They, like the neighbors, were very quiet. The street was incredibly dark at night (make sure you know where you are going if you drive in at night from an unusual direction!), and there was only a very small amount of vehicular traffic on the street, which connects directly into Route 89 for accessibility to the parks. The owners were very helpful and accommodating with our reservations, and the instructions for use of various things (laundry, television, garbage day, etc.) were very clear. This is a property in a location that we would revisit, and we hardly ever go back to the same place twice. Kudos to the owners for making their family heirloom property available for us to enjoy. A top flight rental

Wonderful Charming Home

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I (6 of us!) so enjoyed our week stay at your lovely charming home, celebrating my 50th birthday! I knew when I saw the pic's of the Cross R Ranch Home that it was the place I wanted to stay, while volunteering at Best Friends and visiting the surrounding parks with my girlfriends. The house was immaculate, stocked with everything we needed, and plenty of space inside and out to relax and unwind after fun days spent enjoying the beautiful area. I look forward to staying at your home again! P.S.we also enjoyed the gray cat that visited us daily and hope that he is just a friendly neighbor who has a good home to go to every night. Thank you again!!
