Fantastic lodging in Kanab (near Best Friends)
My husband and I stayed 5 days at "The Margarete" while volunteering at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and exploring southern Utah during our vacation. This is the perfect place to stay in Kanab! Staying in The Margarete was like staying in a nice home (as opposed to the alternative of a small, cramped hotel room without a private yard). Everything was clean and well-kept... the location is right in the heart of Kanab... and the amenities were wonderful. Having a full kitchen made it easy for us to cook our own meals sometimes (the local grocery store is only 2 blocks away) and to keep leftovers from local restaurants (wow, many great options!) in the fridge to reheat later on. Pet-friendly, the fenced back yard and dog door made it so easy for the two dogs we hosted for "sleepovers" from DogTown in Best Friends to come in and out as they pleased. The dogs loved the yard and many rounds of "fetch" were played! And there's a picnic table outside which was quite enjoyable when the temperature cooled down in the evenings. The Grand Canyon and Zion Park were both amazing and within easy driving distance (on our next trip we want to explore Bryce and Lake Powell). The home was stocked with everything we needed -- from laundry detergent to paper towels to coffee to cokes in the fridge to bananas and muffins (yum!) in the kitchen to brochures about all the local attractions to menus from local restaurants -- Ruthie, the owner, thought of absolutely everything! Ruthie is a fantastic hostess and a very nice person. We enjoyed meeting her (and her cute doggies!) next door. Our emails/transactions in reserving the property and setting up the trip were easy, simple and the owner answered every question we had. This was our first trip to Utah... one we will never forget. The accommodations made the trip a zillion times better than it would have been otherwise... we felt quite comfortable and "at home" here. We highly recommend The Margarete if you are exploring the Kanab / southern Utah / northern Arizona / Nevada area... and if you are travelling with your own dogs... and especially if you are volunteering at Best Friends. Many thanks to Ruthie for the wonderful hospitality! We will definitely be back!
