About Tom Forsythe

I moved to Kanab 20 years ago to escape the frenzy of Los Angeles and have never worked so hard in my life. I traded the not so stressful life of reading screenplays on the beach for the complexity of rural life. After successfully fending off the rapacious legal eagles representing the Mattel Corporation - - I took on the responsibility of running the Little Hollywood Land tourist business. We sell iconic images of the mythic American West. We'll sell you great jewelry or put you in a classic old time photo. Running a business is a lot of work but the beauty of the land keeps it all fun - living here is like looking at the world through an 81 A warming filter.

Tom Forsythe purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Tom Forsythe chose Utah

This charming historical home combines history with modern comfort. For the price of a decent hotel room you can enjoy an entire house.

In town location convenient to shops & restaurants and the Highway to all the great sights in Southern Utah.

This house has a modern kitchen with all amenities, a cool saltillo tile floor in kitchen & bath and sustainably harvested locally grown wood floors. It's a very nice with some real personality and room to make yourself at home.

After a long day enjoying the sites you can soak in the claw foot tub, surf the Wi fi or enjoy DVDs from the video library.

What makes this cottage unique

Of course there's a washer/dryer and quality linens. The living room has a romantic propane fireplace and comfortable seating. Out back there's a rock patio and outdoor fireplace.

Now that we have hypoallergenic wood floors we can't in good conscience allow pets in this home.

Great place for family

  • 5 of 5

Kanab cottage worked great for our family of 5. Older kids split the den/small bedroom and younger was comfortable on the couch. Everyone slept well on comfy beds. Location is good right on the end of town with easy access to east Zion entrance and Bryce. Thought about going to north rim but it is closed until May 15. Turned right at Fredonia instead and spent a day in Vegas. Great trip, thanks for the great accommodations!

Master bedroom was comfortable. Plenty of towels, dish soap and extras. Shower was finicky.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling to the area to visit friends and see the Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion. We found the house centrally located to all these. The house had all the conveniences we needed for a family of 5. It was great to have a fully stocked kitchen, dishwasher and washer and dryer. House has more of a cottage feel than modern but we found it perfect for the area. Great value for the price!

A comfortable, close to parks stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a really wonderful stay. The home was well maintained and lovely. The kitchen, grill, and laundry were all well appreciated by us! The proximity to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks was great. I would not hesitate to recommend this place.

Comfortable house and Convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights and wish we had been there longer. Great location for the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and surrounding area. The house is very comfortable and Tom pays attention to details. We stay in VRBO properties whenever we travel and generally find a lack of multiple reading lights but Tom has this covered. The kitchen is well equipped. The bed is comfortable with nice linens. The house is very quiet. The flagstone patio and fire pit would be nice on cooler nights than we experienced. Since we aren't big TV watchers we didn't miss cable and the wifi worked well. Tom was kind enough to come by the night we arrived and helped us stream the Presidential debate.

We look forward to returning to Kanab and will certainly stay here again.

This house fit our needs during our Labor day weekend

  • 5 of 5

We decided to travel to Southern Utah on short Notice during the Labor Day weekend. Since it was short notice, everything Around Kanab was booked with the exception of this house - maybe because of some reviews. But we decided to give it a try since the owner had stated he had addressed the issues (the pictures showed that he had) and the price was very reasonable .

Even though it was a two bedroom one bath room, we found it very spacious and clean . It was perfect for a family of Four. My wife loved the wood floors and counter tops. We encounter zero issues mentioned in previous reviews. This house became our base camp for day trips to Bryce Canyon National Park (1:30 minutes away) and Zion National Park (50 minutes away)

I'm thinking of exploring more of Southern Utah next summer and I would definitely stay here again.

Good local grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. 5 miles to Best Friends, 30 miles to Zion, 78 to Bryce, 70 to Lake Powell, 74 to Grand Canyon. It's beautiful in every direction, the land that Hollywood filmed to create the world's image of the iconic American West.

Since I own Little Hollywood Land I highly recommend this free Movie Set Museum, Trading Post and Photo Studio. Seriously it's worth visiting and the staff will help you choose the best activities for your interest and budget. There's lots of free hiking, some of it even guided, and many outfitters willing to beat up their vehicles to get you deep into the back-country. There are guided ATV and horseback tours, scenic flights and zip lines.

We'll clue you in on the attractions beyond the big names, places like Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Peekaboo slot canyon, Bunting Trail or Hog Canyon. How about Cascade Falls - see Navajo Lake shoot out of a hole in the side of a mountain - the headwaters of the Virgin River that carved Zion Canyon. We think the parks are too crowded and I'll make sure you find the places that make Kanab worth visiting over and over again.
