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 Kanab
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.

Charming Home and Ideal Location
Our family had the most incredible and memorable stay at the loviest little home in Kanab. You can’t beat its location on the quieter end of the main thoroughfare of Kanab, which runs through the heart of what is a quaint and bustling but small town. We were able to walk to get coffee, lunch, dinner, groceries. And with the views in Kanab, you want to walk if you can. The home is spotless, clean, tidy and has a claw foot tub! The house was also stocked with all essentials you may need to cook and keep house. The backyard is perfect for a cocktail outdoors after a long day exploring! We will certainly stay here again if the opportunity presents itself. I want to add too that the owner is very thoughtful! Stay here!! It’s an easy decision!!
This cozy well appointed cottage/house had everything for a great stay for the two us.
We were looking for a place to be centrally located to all of the area sights and this place was perfect. We parked our bags and made it our central station while we explored the area. House was stocked with all of the basics, including full kitchen necessities, a large bathroom with claw foot tub, full laundry room and a comfortable bed. The best thing of all, it was super clean. We recommend this adorable home without hesitation.
The home was spotless.
This is a safe comfortable home. Nicely stocked kitchen.
Comfortable home and great location
This home was the perfect place to stay. It was close to Best Friends, Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon-North Rim. Very comfortable. Our home away from home.
Great base location to explore southeastern Utah.
House was comfortable and clean. Kitchen well supplied for our needs. Enjoyed having the grill (with charcoal supplied!) and patio. Appreciated the wifi and Netflix too!
Cozy home, great location
My husband and I rented this home for our southwest adventure, having never been before. The location was perfect if you're traveling to the National Parks but don't forget about everything in Kanab - Coral Pink Sand Dunes and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary are not to be missed. Kanab is an adorable town with great history and great restaurants.
The house was cozy with everything we needed. There was a slight ant problem when we arrived but Tom was quick to help the situation and everything was fine the rest of the week. It was nice to enjoy the fenced in back area in the cool evenings. The master suite was great and the bed was incredibly comfortable. It was a great home away from home.
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.
