About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths

The old west is still alive… Situated on 11 acres, in the beautiful town of Kanab, the Rockin’ M Ranch House is a great escape to the country without leaving the city limits. The ranch house is located on scenic Highway 89A, within walking distance to local shops, grocery stores and restaurants. It is large enough for group gatherings and corporate retreats, yet cozy enough for a family get-a-way. We have horse facilities, so you can bring your horses and discover the many equestrian trails in this area, plenty of trailer parking if you prefer ATV adventures. Maybe you would like to hike the red cliffs, or visit the many national parks and monuments in this area. We are centrally located to The Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion, Lake Powell, Grand Staircase Escalante, Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Brian Head Ski Resort, and Pipe Springs National Monument. With so much to offer, you can do as much or as little as you want.

Our 3,000 sq. foot home, built in 1950, and recently updated is spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated with lots of western flare! It is all one level so everything is accessible without having to climb any stairs. The front porch offers AMAZING views of the crimson cliffs and unforgettable sunsets as the sun reflects off the mountains. In the back yard you can relax, play games, or roast marshmallows in the fire pit. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for use; with a BBQ grill outside. The dining room is a favorite gathering place with the aroma of supper in the kitchen, and the warmth of the wood-burning fireplace in the winter. There is something for everyone in the living room with a second wood burning fireplace, game table, big screen TV with satellite, VCR and DVD, and plenty of room to read a book or just sit and relax. There is a king-sized bed, and twin bunk beds in the STAMPEDE room, a queen-sized bed in the RIATA room, a twin bed and pool table in the LIL’ BUCKAROO quarters, a queen bed in the SOUTHERN BELL room, a day bed with a trundle in the OUTLAW room. There is also a portable baby bed, air mattresses and sleeping mats available if you need them. If you prefer you can just roll out a cowboy bedroll and sleep under the stars.

There is room to park RV's ($25 per night) if you need additional room.

All linens are furnished for the bedrooms and bathrooms and there is a washer and Dryer for your convenience. A two car carport is available for parking. Absolutely NO SMOKING in or near the home. Outside pets are welcome! On-site massages and catering services are available. We hope that you make yourself at home & enjoy your stay!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Kanab and our stay at the Rockin’ M Ranch House. It is a beautiful property and has such fun western decorations. The house was sparkling clean, very comfortable and the location was perfect. We especially loved the western theme rooms, pool table, front porch & back patio area with the fire pit. We used the home as a base for a conference we were attending and for trips to the Grand Canyon, Zion, and Bryce Canyon National Parks. It was wonderful to come home to such a nice place after some wonderful days exploring. The owners were so helpful answering our questions and even welcomed us to their ranch for a horse-drawn wagon ride and delightful Dutch Oven supper. They were very nice. We loved getting to know them & enjoyed their beautiful home and ranch. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone planning a trip to Kanab!!

Rockin' M Ranch House on 11 Acres in Kanab City Limits...location location!
average rating of 4.892857 based on 29 reviews

Very charming property. Quiet well maintained. The owner Pam was a delight.

  • 4 of 5

Kanab is a beautiful area with side by side trails,slotted canyons and National Parks all very close. We were looking for a more laid back vibe for Easter break and it was perfect. The Rockin M Ranch was lovely very clean and comfortable with a western feel in decor perfect for a ranch home. The property is large the kids spent lots of time playing in the yard while we hung out on the front porch. Thanks to our hostess Pam we had a great time

Spacious, vintage and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the Rockin M Ranch House. Well stocked with the little extras like tissues, napkins and extra tp. House is a mid-century cowboy's dream. Many original details still exist in the house - steel kitchen cabinets, cowboy floor mat in a kid's room, original wallpapers in the closets, original light fixtures in the kitchen, and the original bar and stools made by the original homeowner. Be sure to read the guest book entry from 2014, I think September. It was written by the daughter of the original homeowner. Don't be fooled by the original-ness though, as there was plenty of hot water, good Wi-Fi, and all appliances worked. The house is close to Kanab, maybe a mile to the heart of downtown. It is also 80 miles or less to Bryce Canyon, Zion, and the Grand Canyon. Wonderful base camp to see the parks, and visit Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

Great family location

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of eight for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The 5 bedrooms gave our eclectic group plenty of room to spread out. The house had a spacious living room to all get together with games, movies and a large screen TV with satellite service to enjoy some evening relaxation after a day of hiking. The beds were all very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and the bathrooms had lots of extras to make everyone feel at home. We also enjoyed the outdoor spaces - relaxing on the porch benches and eating lunch on the back patio picnic table. The house was spotlessly clean, everything worked as it should and check-in and out were easy.

Kanab is a great location. There is easy access to Zion, Bryce and the north rim of Grand Canyon National Parks. Also we made trips to Red Canyon and Buckskin Gulch. We took advantage of some local sights - a hike to dinosaur tracks and Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. There is more to do than days to do it! The people of Kanab were all extremely friendly and we enjoyed dining at several restaurants: the Rocking V Cafe, Peek-a-Boo Canyon Woodfired Kitchen, Big Al's Burgers and Kanab Creek Bakery as well as stocking up on supplies at Honey's Market.

We felt very welcome (Pam, thank you for the plate of homemade cookies on arrival!) and wouldn't hesitate to stay again on another trip to the area.

We had 4 adults and 7 children ranging in ages from 1 to 14 years in our party June 2017. While we were there we were able to easily visit Zion, the Grand Canyon, Page, Bryce, and the Coral Sand Dunes. This location was so perfect we were able to drive to each of these locations and not be exhausted from the travel. There are two grocery stores in town so it was not a big deal to be far from a Walmart. The kitchen had plenty of pots and pans for us to make dinner for 11 people nightly with no trouble. The house was the perfect size and we were very grateful for three bathrooms (with water pressure- hurrah!) We were also grateful for the satellite television and wifi! Clean up required at checkout was very easy.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as advertised, we loved the fun, kitschy cowboy decor and the kids really loved the pool table and ample yard space to play! Pam was wonderfully responsive to our needs. It was perfect for our extended family - we drove into Zion every day and enjoyed our trip immensely. It's a beautiful part of the world!
