About Jody Amacher

Our intense love for animals brought us to Best Friends to volunteer and to see first hand what a very special place it is. Trained as wildlife biologists, we have always shared a passion for the environment. After our first trip to Southwestern Utah, we realized that this is where we were destined to retire to. Growing up in the Midwest, we met in the upper peninsula of Michigan while attending graduate school. From there, we spent 20 years in Maine building our equine, canine, and feline family! We currently live in South Carolina with our horses, donkeys, dogs, cat, and three very exuberant parrots!

Jody Amacher purchased this house in 2012

Why Jody Amacher chose Kanab

We were immediately drawn to this home because of its relaxed, open feeling, and the serene beauty of the surrounding cliffs and trees. We knew that it would be a perfect future setting for our equine family.

What makes this house unique

What more could one ask for than to have the opportunity to enjoy the area's natural beauty and to explore the rugged Vermilion Cliffs from your backyard, and yet be minutes from Kanab's charming downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so very much for sharing with us your beautifully situated home. So central and comfortable to every place we wanted to visit on this trip. We had an amazing time!!

This was our second stay at this property and again we were not disappointed. This time we had more people in our party so we utilized the in-law quarters. It is just as fabulous and comfortable as the main house. Every night we had a doggie guest from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. The owners of this house are gracious enough to allow this. They all loved the house too and it gave them a much needed respite from sanctuary life. We'll be back in May.

Owner's Response: Thank you again for choosing to stay at our home again while volunteering at Best Friends. We are very appreciative of the time you gave to the animals there and for making a very special night for a few of the sanctuary dogs! Hope to be able to accommodate you again on your return trip back to Kanab.

Next best thing to having a home in Kanab

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this spacious house with a large deck and green lawn. The house was very clean and well maintained. A couple of the nightlights needed new bulbs but other than that everything was functional. We appreciated the large enclosed garage and enjoyed the basketball hoop in the driveway. We especially appreciated the properly inflated basketball provided for our use. During our stay we ventured out to Toroweap for an incomparable view of the Colorado River. We also ventured out to Wire Pass and hiked into Buckskin Gulch. Kanab made a great home base for our exploration of the area.

Beautiful home with a great view

  • 5 of 5
This house was great for a large group. It is an open concept home with high ceilings and a nice view. The deck off the great room is very large and relaxing. The home is very clean and It is less than 5 minutes to town (Kanab). The in-law suite is also very nice. Renting it gives you 2 extra rooms, a bathroom and a nice sized kitchenette and living area. It is accessible from either inside or outside the house. The house is huge and the master bedroom is awesome! All of the other rooms are very nice sized as well. The washer and dryer are newer and are extra-large capacity. It has an oversized 2 car garage. This house is perfect for relaxing after a long day of volunteering at Best Friends Animal Society or after hiking. It is a beautiful home and we will definately rent it again!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
The house was much more than we expected!
We were 8 people, and it felt spacious and comfortable.
The kitchen was fully equipped, and the whole house was spotless.
The surroundings are beautiful, and we had plenty of privacy.
We were cooking comfortably in the kitchen, and enjoyed eating outside on the deck.

Thank you!
We'll be back for more.

Great house!!! There was plenty of space for all, and was equipped with everything that would be needed for a large family. The house was also wonderfully placed between three great parks, Zion, grand,and bryce. Also not far from lake Powell which is a great time for people who enjoy boating

Best Friends Volunteers

  • 5 of 5
We were four ladies (originally supposed to be five) volunteering for the week at Best Friends. We found the home comfortable (plenty of room for all four of us to stretch out in the living room and each of us had our own comfortable bedroom), almost like being in our own homes. Even though we didn't do much cooking, we found the kitchen delightful. Plenty of use for the toaster and coffee maker. The 3 1/2 baths were also convenient for us. But we especially appreciated you allowing sleepovers from Best Friends as we brought home a special dog - Beethoven - who even went to dinner with us at Spurs. We are looking forward to returning for a longer volunteering stint and hope your house will be available. It is a very special place!

Owner's Response: Thank you all for giving your time to the animals at Best Friends! It is a very special organization to us, too. Beethoven sounds like a delightful dog, and I'm sure he was lavishly pampered by the 4 of you! We are so happy that your stay was enjoyable and we would love to host you all again in the future.
