Ruthie Itow purchased this house in 2012
Property dedicated to Margarete Hartmann a great animal lover and volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Available to people who want to visit the sanctuary, as well as the parks and bring their pets. This property is very dog friendly.
Fenced back yard. Full kitchen. Washer and Dryer. Cable TV. WiFi access. DVD player.
Clean, quiet affordable place. Close to all parks around. Must have in the frig, mustard, salad dressing, coffee, etc. Nice when you forget something at the grocers. Gladly recommend anytime :)
I had the great pleasure of staying at Ruthie's place for a month during September and October.
I arrived and opened the door to what would be my home for a month and instantly felt at home. There were fresh flowers and chocolate on the table and literally everything one would need. There were pamphlets for all the fantastic outings that are in and around Kanab (Zion, Bryce, Lake Powell, Grand Canyon). There were all the must-haves, that you don't want to have to buy, in the fridge (all the condiments, etc), everything needed for cooking and baking, there was even laundry detergent and dryer sheets.
I volunteered at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary for almost the entire month and I can't say how very convenient it was to be a 10 minute drive from where it is located....not to mention the brilliance of having a washer and dryer after volunteering with pigs in the morning and then going to volunteer with dogs in the afternoon. So very convenient.
Having the opportunity to bring home sleepover pets from the sanctuary AND having not only Ruthie's blessing but her encouragement to bring them home was just icing on the cake. The backyard was perfect to relax with the dog(s) and Ruthie even has a water dish outside and a pooper scooper and bucket. There really was nothing missing.
I truly have not got one complaint about this home. The only complaint about my stay in Kanab is that I did not get to meet Ruthie in person. She was such an intricate part of my whole experience in that she gave advice leading up to the trip and even made herself available when I was already part way through my trip (via email). She is such a lovely woman and I am eternally grateful to have found her and this home in my searches.
I will be staying at Ruthie's accommodation for my next trip, without an ounce of hesitation.
Ruthie's house was just what we needed for our stay to volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. It's just a couple of blocks from anything we needed--groceries, restaurants, post office. The house was very clean, and even though we didn't have a dog, it was well-equipped to handle one with a fenced backyard. The location was perfect for our trips to Grand Canyon North Rim, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks.
We recently returned home to northern Utah after visiting 6 national park, 4 state parks, 3 national monuments and many scenic areas of Utah. This home was ideal for our 5 night stay in Kanab!! The owner was very friendly and helpful. Our beagle loved having her own space. Grocery stores are very near. This home was well equipped for any traveler. We would absolutely recommend this rental to any family and/or friends visiting the area!!
Spent a couple weeks here in March hiking, exploring, & fulfilling my quest for T-shirt weather after a cold north winter. The place was clean and the owner made sure we had everything we needed. The doggy door and fenced back yard made it just like home for my dog and no worries for me. Great home base for pet owners.
This is perfect. Neat tidy little home. Everything you need and want for a visit to the best friends society. We brought my 80 year old mom and although she wasn't able to negotiate getting in and out by herself without a railing, she was content with the sunshine through the bright windows and cable tv. My 12 year old neice didn't want to leave. She also thought this was the perfect place. We will be back. absolutely.
