So many folks tell us that when they walk inside The Jackson House for the first time the first word they utter is 'Wow!' Guests are initially impressed by the warmth and welcoming atmosphere of the home and the attention to detail for cleanliness and comfort. As guests continue on the tour of the home they see that each room offers period antiques and can see the restoration of hard wood floors, spun glass windows, wood trim and flowering gardens. The home offers early 1900's charm with modern expectations. The Jackson home takes you back in time to when people sat on the front porch sipping fresh lemonade and gathered together to create memories that would last a lifetime.
Guests are impressed to see a fully stocked modern kitchen, period bathroom complete with a clawfoot tub, inviting library full of books, cascading stream in the backyard, wood stove for chilly nights, three car garage, and entertainment room with flat screen tv, bar, fridge, and microwave.
Although the inside of the Jackson House is amazing, the 'Wow' factor continues as guests see the backyard for the first time! A cascading river flows through the private desert oasis! There is a large patio and clean BBQ where you can gather your friends and family together for delicious meals. Subtle outdoor lighting allows you to enjoy the atmosphere of the backyard and the stars at the same time.
Just when guests think they have seen the entire home, they discover the basement entertainment room which is privately located at the far east side of the home. The entertainment room comes complete with a large flat screen TV, serving bar, microwave, mini fridge, game table, two large leather couches, games and movies. This area can be used as a 5th family bedroom.
The home offers 4 bedroom + 4 cubby sleeping areas, 3 baths, living room, family room, dining room, entertainment room, three car garage and plenty of parking for an RV or multiple cars. The Jackson House can accommodate large groups. The home sleeps 8 in beds but guests can also use the queen airbed, pull out sofa and 3 sleeping mats.
The Jackson House is pet friendly. The yard is fully fenced to keep your pet safe and protected. On the side of the house there is a dog run complete with a dog door that leads into a secure kennel inside the garage. Sorry no cats due to homeowners allergies.
The Jackson House is located only 5 miles from Kanab, Utah where you can grocery shop, visit tourist attractions, and enjoy entertainment. If you don't feel like driving you can walk right across the street and enjoy a meal at the Cowboy Butte Grill. You can also stroll two blocks down and splash in the town swimming pool or play at the new park.
If you are looking for more things to do during your free time, the Jackson House comes with plenty of extras to help you enjoy your vacation. There is a large area to play basketball and a pool table for family fun. There are even four sets of nerf guns and a box of outdoor toys for kids to enjoy.
The Jackson House provides the perfect base from which to explore Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Lake Powell, Grand Staircase National Park and all of Southern Utah. We are also only 45 minutes to The North Rim of the Grand Canyon which is the hidden Jewel of Arizona. The North Rim is less crowded, more spectacular, and offers cooler temperatures. There is so much to do in this area, but you may find the Jackson House to be so relaxing and rejuvenating that you never want to leave the front porch!

In 1991 Scott and Traci met while working as river guides in the Grand Canyon. At the time, Scott’s parents owned The Jackson House and operated it as a Bed & Breakfast. Scott and Traci had their wedding reception in the front room! Little did they know that 15 years later they would purchase The Jackson House. For over five years they completely renovated and remodeled. It has been a labor of love.
Traci Heaton purchased this house in 2004

The Jackson House just feels like going back in time, but with all the modern conveniences. The house is large enough for big groups but cozy enough for a romantic getaway for two. The house is furnished in antiques and the yard is simply amazing!
We had decided to take this trip because my grandmother who is 84 has always wanted to see the Grand Canyon. We could not have asked for a nicer, cleaner, more homey place then the Jackson House. It was a perfect location for us since we wanted to do both the Grand Canyon and also Bryce Canyon. You truly thought of everything. We loved that we all could cook together in the kitchen. We also loved spending evenings in the back yard. The beds were so comfortable down to the linens that are amazingly soft. The birds also really love the river feature as we noticed them waiting on the rocks for the water to start in the morning. I also attached a picture of all of us at the North Rim. We had such a memorable trip and we thank you for helping to make it great. I can not thank you enough for opening up your home to people who want to visit southern Utah and northern Arizona. If we ever decide to visit this area again you will be the first person I contact! Thanks again!
It was so peaceful and we felt just at home. My favorite part was the front patio, truly felt like I was back East. HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone considering coming out this way. It's close to all the nearby parks.
It was clean, had basic pantry and toiletry items. TONS of sight seeing magazines etc, and the basement was perfrct for movies, and the pool table an added bonus.
Also a BIG thank you to the housekeeper or family member who recommended Zion National park during the trip. It was breathtaking and we actually went back 3 days in a row.
Can't wait to book our next trip out there!
We really enjoyed our stay at The Jackson House. Two families, including three kids, stayed at the Jackson House for four days in early October. It was convenient to the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park and the Coral Dunes. We had a ball hiking. The kids loved the upstairs play nooks and the back and front yards. I loved the well-stocked kitchen. It was great that the owners had things like condiments and plastic bags and a kitchen with everything we needed to make dinner and breakfast.
Very nice and kid friendly home with good access to national parks and monuments. Kids loved the upstairs play areas as well as the back yard and tree swing in front. Had the good fortune to meet Darol, the former owner and present care taker of Jackson House. He has a wealth of information about the area and house. I would highly recommend this home. My kids and grandkids all loved their stay here.
If you can imagine the two combined, this is what this wonderful house gives you, and it will completment whatever trip that you have in mind! It is just right in an airy way, all neat and prim. And the discovery of sandboarding at the local Utah park was a real delight! 5 stars again and again!
This house was so comfortable and well stocked. Cooking in the kitchen was easy. This place was probably the best stocked rental we have stayed in. I knew they didn't have cable, so we brought our Roku box and were able to access movies through wifi with our Netflix account. I loved sitting in the backyard and listening to the babbling brook. My husband loved sitting on the front porch in the rockers while watching the morning rush hour which is probably 20 cars. When you are city people this a such a nice change of pace. The national parks were a bit of a drive, but definitely manageable. All in all, I loved this vacation and the Jackson House was one of the reasons.
What a beautiful, well maintained home. Everything we wanted to see, from Zion to Bryce to the Grand Canyon to Lake Powell was no more than a 1 1/2 hr drive. We could do the parks,then come home and do steaks on the grill on the great patio, or go to a restaurant in Fredonia or nearby (7mi.) Kanab, UT. I would recommend this VRBO to anyone. All seven of us loved our experience!
Fredonia is the closest town to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and offers a central location to Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion, Grand Staircase, and Lake Powell. Fredonia is only 5 minutes from Kanab, Utah which is also a popular tourist destination.
