Aunt Muriel came to Kanab to visit her sister in the 30’s, married a cowboy named Billy, and never left. In the 70’s she built her dream house on the same block as her sister, Ida Riggs, owner of the Cross R Ranch House (Wonderful Historic Craftsman Bungalow).
The one story Comfortable Brick Rambler, newly renovated, consists of three bedrooms, two with queens and one with twins, located two blocks from downtown Kanab. It also has two baths, a laundry, a dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. The living room has newly installed hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace, a flat screen television and a DVD player. There are comfy sofas to relax on and movies to enjoy.
The yard is fully fenced and landscaped and has a patio on which our guests can barbecue. Muriel was a prize winning gardener and the yard still reflects her touch.
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.
Owners are Dianne and Lynn Riggs, residents on Minnesota and co-owners of the Cross R Ranch House (Wonderful Historic Craftsman Bungalow). They bought the house in 2007 from Muriel’s estate.
For large groups, consider renting the Cross R Ranch House ( http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p293990 ) in addition to Muriel’s Place. They are on the same block, one house apart.
