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

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 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.

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.

ROOM FOR EVERYONE

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this property Father's Day weekend and was EXTREMLY pleased. The house is big and comfortable. Well equipped and very clean. The house is beautiful and I would recommend it for anyone. In fact I'm going to try to book it next year. We only had a small problem with the ice maker and the last person to stay there left the propane on the BBQ grill Both problems were easily solved with a quick trip to store. Everything is close to rental property yet u feel "away from it all". The views were beautiful. GREAT rental property!!

The home was even better than you might expect from the pictures: well maintained with a lot of privacy in a desert setting, very spacious with a very large garage and plenty of amenities. Kanab is a great home base to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, and Page, AZ - everything is an hour or two away. The owners were very polite and responsive and were gracious enough to reschedule us in the extreme circumstance where the government closed all the National Parks! My family would happily stay here again and I highly recommend it.

I've rented two other houses in Kanab and this one is by far the best. It's clean, roomy and the furniture and appliances are on the newer side. The location is beautiful. You can park in the garage and they allow sleep-over dogs from Best Friends. I will definately be back.
