About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 baths, sleeps 8 in beds, plus 6 more on sleeping mats/air beds

So many folks tell us that when they walk inside The Jackson House for the first time the first word they utter is 'Wow!' Guests are initially impressed by the warmth and welcoming atmosphere of the home and the attention to detail for cleanliness and comfort. As guests continue on the tour of the home they see that each room offers period antiques and can see the restoration of hard wood floors, spun glass windows, wood trim and flowering gardens. The home offers early 1900's charm with modern expectations. The Jackson home takes you back in time to when people sat on the front porch sipping fresh lemonade and gathered together to create memories that would last a lifetime.

Guests are impressed to see a fully stocked modern kitchen, period bathroom complete with a clawfoot tub, inviting library full of books, cascading stream in the backyard, wood stove for chilly nights, three car garage, and entertainment room with flat screen tv, bar, fridge, and microwave.

Although the inside of the Jackson House is amazing, the 'Wow' factor continues as guests see the backyard for the first time! A cascading river flows through the private desert oasis! There is a large patio and clean BBQ where you can gather your friends and family together for delicious meals. Subtle outdoor lighting allows you to enjoy the atmosphere of the backyard and the stars at the same time.

Just when guests think they have seen the entire home, they discover the basement entertainment room which is privately located at the far east side of the home. The entertainment room comes complete with a large flat screen TV, serving bar, microwave, mini fridge, game table, two large leather couches, games and movies. This area can be used as a 5th family bedroom.

The home offers 4 bedroom + 4 cubby sleeping areas, 3 baths, living room, family room, dining room, entertainment room, three car garage and plenty of parking for an RV or multiple cars. The Jackson House can accommodate large groups. The home sleeps 8 in beds but guests can also use the queen airbed, pull out sofa and 3 sleeping mats.

The Jackson House is pet friendly. The yard is fully fenced to keep your pet safe and protected. On the side of the house there is a dog run complete with a dog door that leads into a secure kennel inside the garage. Sorry no cats due to homeowners allergies.

The Jackson House is located only 5 miles from Kanab, Utah where you can grocery shop, visit tourist attractions, and enjoy entertainment. If you don't feel like driving you can walk right across the street and enjoy a meal at the Cowboy Butte Grill. You can also stroll two blocks down and splash in the town swimming pool or play at the new park.

If you are looking for more things to do during your free time, the Jackson House comes with plenty of extras to help you enjoy your vacation. There is a large area to play basketball and a pool table for family fun. There are even four sets of nerf guns and a box of outdoor toys for kids to enjoy.

The Jackson House provides the perfect base from which to explore Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Lake Powell, Grand Staircase National Park and all of Southern Utah. We are also only 45 minutes to The North Rim of the Grand Canyon which is the hidden Jewel of Arizona. The North Rim is less crowded, more spectacular, and offers cooler temperatures. There is so much to do in this area, but you may find the Jackson House to be so relaxing and rejuvenating that you never want to leave the front porch!

About Scott and Traci Heaton

In 1991 Scott and Traci met while working as river guides in the Grand Canyon. At the time, Scott’s parents owned The Jackson House and operated it as a Bed & Breakfast. Scott and Traci had their wedding reception in the front room! Little did they know that 15 years later they would purchase The Jackson House. For over five years they completely renovated and remodeled. It has been a labor of love.

The Heaton family now lives in Juneau. They have learned to troll for salmon, fish for halibut, kayak in the open sea, and hike mountain peaks with snow shoes. They love exploring Southeast Alaska hope to one day return to the beauty and serenity of the North Rim.

Scott and Traci Heaton purchased this house in 2004

This home is the perfect romantic getaway for couples or a relaxing private destination for friends. The home has been completely renovated and offers all the modern conveniences of a new home. Guests can enjoy the private backyard featuring a flowing stream, large patio, and covered swing or take in views of Main Street sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch. The Jackson House is located in Fredonia, AZ which is the closest town to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. If you are looking to explore the Grand Canyon or the parks of Southern Utah, The Jackson house is a perfect place to stay.

What makes this house unique

The Jackson House just feels like going back in time, but with all the modern conveniences. The house is large enough for big groups but cozy enough for a romantic getaway for two. The house is furnished in antiques and the yard is simply amazing!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had decided to take this trip because my grandmother who is 84 has always wanted to see the Grand Canyon. We could not have asked for a nicer, cleaner, more homey place then the Jackson House. It was a perfect location for us since we wanted to do both the Grand Canyon and also Bryce Canyon. You truly thought of everything. We loved that we all could cook together in the kitchen. We also loved spending evenings in the back yard. The beds were so comfortable down to the linens that are amazingly soft. The birds also really love the river feature as we noticed them waiting on the rocks for the water to start in the morning. I also attached a picture of all of us at the North Rim. We had such a memorable trip and we thank you for helping to make it great. I can not thank you enough for opening up your home to people who want to visit southern Utah and northern Arizona. If we ever decide to visit this area again you will be the first person I contact! Thanks again!

Great Stay

Beautiful, old home. Great backyard. We really enjoyed our stay. About 90 minutes to the North Rim, which is a bit far but worked out well for us.

Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this vacation home. It was quite comfortable, very clean, and roomy. We didn't even use all the rooms or bathrooms. Everything was easy to find in the kitchen and pantry and every possible thing has been thought of and provided for. We met the owner's father and he was absolutely delightful. We visited the Native American store across the street and the silversmith told us more about the area. Everyone was very friendly. The city of Kanab is quite close and has lots of choices for restaurants. Thank you for providing such a nice vacation home!

Lots of space. The side yard was a great place to sit and relax or eat. Kitchen is large and can have several "cooks" in the kitchen. Large refrigerator. Washer/dryer is nice.

Stay July 22 2017

  • 3 of 5

The house was convenient in location to all the attractions we wanted to visit. The furniture is really used and the bedding could be updated. There is no local TV nor cable services so there is no access to any news service other than through your own cell phones. Kitchen is user friendly but the pots and pans could be upgraded to non-stick cookware, a crockpot and electric griddle would be a good addition.
