About Melanie Thompson

My husband and I moved to the St George area from England in 2004 looking to retire in the sun. We purchased our home here in Ivins in approx 2007 and after having many many european friends visit for vacations we thought it would be a great idea to let visitors experience what we experience every single day.

We share our home with our 2 very sociable rescue dogs , Mickey Finn and Harley Brown

Melanie Thompson purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Melanie Thompson chose Utah

We chose this area for the views. , hiking and biking trails and its quiet rural setting.

What makes this cottage unique

The area is beautiful and close to many hiking / biking trails together with the many golf courses in the area. The studio is completly self contained and very private. If you want a comfortable place to stay at a great price but dont want to be in an apartment complex then this is the place for you.

Quiet, Clean, Comfortable, Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

If you are staying in the St. George area and want a quiet, comfortable location away from the traffic, lights and noise, this is the place to stay. Very close to Tuachan or Snow Canyon State Park. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in (a way better than you get get in a motel at this price). There are some lovely restaurants in nearby Santa Clara (5 minutes away). Very comfortable, private, and affordable. Probably the best value you will find in St. George. A perfect place for two people to stay.

Will stay there again!

  • 5 of 5

We booked a week in St George to take in some golf and our hosts provided golf course recommendations before we even arrived! While there, we were also the recipients of excellent restaurant recommendations. We thoroughly enjoyed the clean and quiet casita which had everything we needed. So nice to have found this wonderful, affordable, alternative to a hotel. Looking forward to our next visit!
