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!
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

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!
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!
We spent a week in Jackson House this August with 10 people- 4 adults and 6 teenagers/pre-teens. We all had plenty of space to spread out and loved eating in the backyard and on the front porch. The house was well stocked and very clean and made our stay a pleasure. We took day trips to the Grand Canyon, Bryce, and Zion. Great central location to these fabulous National Parks. We highly recommend this house.
We enjoyed the Jackson House very much. It was a great location, close to the parks, but not the crowds. Fredonia is a sleepy town, which provides a relaxing and quiet atmosphere to enjoy after a day of hiking and exploring.
The house is stocked with nearly all the essentials you need, and many things that you probably just won't get around to using (i.e. The pool table, basketball hoop, etc).
Overall, we would absolutely stay there again if we ever make it to fredonia again.
Good space for our party of 6 with adequate bedrooms and bathrooms. Well maintained home. Clean with lots of kitchen and bathroom supplies. Beautiful and enjoyable front and back yard. Front yard great for people watching (very strict 35 mph speed limit enforced on the main street Fredonia area). Backyard FABULOUS. I took my own hummingbird feeder to catch pictures of the western hummingbird species and got fabulous shots. Saw many species of birds - drawn to the flowers and water feature in the back yard..
The owners - in-laws (Georgia and Daryl Heaton)live across the street and were most pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed getting to know them and they freely shared information about the parks with us. The weather was VERY HOT. The swamp cooler kept every a perfect temperature.
This old home was beautiful and amazing! We very much enjoyed our stay. It was clean and as described in the website. Loved the front porch! The owner was very cordial and helpful with a change to our reservation. Will definitely stay again. Thanks!!
The house was in good shape, with everything we needed. We were a group of 12, and with all the kids occupying the basement, there was plenty of room for the 7 adults. We enjoyed the water feature in the back yard at our cookout one night, and we were able to get to Zion, Bryce, and the Grand Canyon for quick day trips out there.
Thanks for a great vacation!
We wanted to see Bryce, Zion, and the North Rim without staying in a super touristy area - this was the prefect fit. The house is historic and perfectly redone with great attention to detail. The owners were also very responsive and helpful for any questions we had. During the day we hiked and in the evening we enjoyed cooking, family game night, and relaxing on the porch or in the back yard. The pool table was an extra nice touch. We stay in a lot of VRBOs and this one is really well done.
Fredonia is the closest town to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and offers a central location to Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion, Grand Staircase, and Lake Powell. Fredonia is only 5 minutes from Kanab, Utah which is also a popular tourist destination.
