Kanab House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

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 (HomeAway 293990) in addition to Muriel’s Place. They are on the same block, one house apart.

A perfect house for visiting Kanab

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Muriel's place. The yard was perfect for our dogs. The house was very comfortable and was supplied with everything we needed and with extras in case we forgot something. Thank you! We plan to return sometime to the area and would love to stay there again.

Muriel's Place was much much more than we ever expected! Lovely home, well maintained, very clean.

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with Muriel's Place. Lovely home with a big yard for Toby our dog. Every amenity you could possibly need was thought of. It is centrally located to the beautiful parks and activities in Kanab, a beautiful little town. Lynn Riggs the owner was so helpful and easy to contact. We would highly recommend this home to anyone thinking of a rental in Kanab. The pictures on line do not do it justice. It is bigger and so much more than the pics indicate.

4.5 Stars Wonderful place to stay while in Kanab.

  • 4 of 5

This was a great house that had everything we needed. The only reason we didn't give it a 5 is that the mattresses were a little firm for our taste and it was a little challenging to access the key.( We realize you can't please everyone.) Otherwise, the fenced-in and mostly private yard with the grill out back were very convenient and comfortable. We enjoyed having coffee in the am shade before the hot sun covered the entire yard. The location couldn't have been more convenient. Also, the ability to have a sleepover dog from Best Friends was certainly appreciated. We would definitely stay again!

A perfect house for us!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house was perfect! Great location, just a few blocks from town. Perfect while volunteering at Best Friends. The fenced in yard is a real plus since we had a sleepover dog with us each night. Loved it! Will definitely stay there again next year.

Beautiful yard, good location, beds could use some help

  • 4 of 5

This was my second time staying at Muriel's place. It's the perfect size for three adults and a couple of dogs. The yard is beautiful and we spent a lot of time out there. The house is well equipped and tidy, and there was nothing we needed that we couldn't find. The location is terrific - just a few blocks one direction to the new drug store or Rockin V and a few blocks the other way to the grocery store, Three Bears ice cream and Best Friends town center. The only complaint I have is the beds are pretty hard and uncomfortable, and I went home with a pretty good crick in my neck from our week there. Some egg crate pads would probably do the trick. Other than that, a great stay.
