The bed and breakfast is gorgeous, every room is nice, and the service is invaluable. My husband and I chose to host our wedding here, and Donna and her staff made the entire experience so amazing! In short, gorgeous house, delicious food, and lovely staff.
Though I had just one night to stay, I look forward to returning. Donna is such a friendly and considerate host. The atmosphere at Iron Gate is warm, energetic and welcoming. And the inn is a mere two blocks from the nightly festival Greenshows. My room was nice, the gardens are lovely and breakfast was quite a treat. I hope to be back next year.
What a wonderful first time bed and breakfast experience. We decided to go to the Shakespeare Festival on our honeymoon and we found this romantic, fun, warm friendly Inn. We had a wonderful stay, Charlene and Gary were great Inn keepers. We stayed in the lovely Windsor Castle room. Elegant room, that was lavish but warm and comfortable. The breakfasts that were served were amazing and we loved the delectable treats that were available in the evenings. Charlene and Gary go out of there way to make you feel like welcome. We had a great honeymoon and plan on making Amid Summers Inn our go to place to stay when we come for the Shakespeare Festival.
The University put me up here for a campus visit/interview and it was a great way to introduce me to SUU and Cedar City! Donna is a wonderful hostess and extremely accommodating. The Inn itself is spacious, beautifully decorated, and surrounded by great landscaping. There were so many great spots to sit outside and enjoy a nice cup of tea or glass of wine. And, the breakfasts were truly delicious!
This was an amazing place you have to go to really understand what I mean. It was like I was in the mountains when I was in city. The grounds were amazing and the breakfast in the morning was so good and more than we could even eat. I suggest everyone to visit. You will want to go back.
Not really a B&B. Being rented by the month to construction workers. Changed my reservation (said to be an upgrade) to a basement apartment. Noise in the halls, lots of footsteps above bedroom. Owner not on site. Asked for breakfast at 8:30. Delivered outside of door at 8:00, cold by time we got up. Had to make our own coffee. Bathroom was not real clean. Had reserved for 2 nights, walked out and got a motel. Asked for a refund of one night, but was refused.
Iron Gate Inn and Winery is an excellent choice for travelers in the SW Utah area. It is very centrally located for visits to red rock country -- including Bryce, Zion, Kolob, Cedar Breaks, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The Inn is well-appointed and quite comfortable. Our room and bath were both especially large for a B&B. Breakfasts were very good -- with rave reviews for the cherry souffle and the chocolate croissants! (I liked the latter so much I asked for some to take home!) The hostess was quite welcoming, offered lots of good advice on nearby restaurants, shops, and tourist sites, many of which were within walking distance. Wine was offered in the afternoon, as well. The weather was rather cool and wet while we were there (late April), but the grounds of the Inn are quite lovely, with colorful plantings, a pretty garden, and several porches available for guests. All in all, just the right place to stay!
We visited in late April, which is too early in the season - Cedar Breaks and some other places were still closed, and we experienced snow as we drove past it on our way back from Zion. However, it was great to be easy daytrip distance from Bryce and Zion and Cedar City is a nice little town. Donna was extremely helpful (also prepared really nice breakfasts) and able to direct us to several really nice restaurants in town. Well respected Shakespearean theater 2 blocks away.
We drove up to ski at Brian Head, this lovley little place showed as close to the resort, and hooked to a winery. It is charming however, it is not close to the ski resort and the winery is closed on Sunday and Holidays (we drove in on Saturday night for Presidents weekend) so we did not have an opportunity to visit the winery room. Donna was very nice and ordered dinner in for us for Valentines day and we have a wonderful evening...just about perfect! She had the Inn decorated for the holiday and very gracious and pleasant to talk with.
I have stayed at the Stratford B&B every summer since it opened and have always had a wonderful visit. The bedrooms are comfortable and beautifully appointed; breakfasts are always excellent and plentiful. Great location to the Shakespeare theatres, just a short walk.
Diana and Gary run a top notch place. They have been in business around 15 years, which tells me they have what it takes. The location is a short walking distance to the Utah Shakespeare festival and right off the main drag that takes you to Bryce and Zion Canyons. The town is small and quiet, but has everything you need for your stay. Rooms are quiet and the food is homemade and very tasty. You will not walk away hungry.
We stayed in the King bedroom and it was great! Bed was extremely comfortable (I usually have trouble falling asleep in a new bed but I went right to sleep), breakfast was different every morning and delicious, and this place allows quick walking access to most of what you want to see in Cedar City. Stay here!
This was the first time the we stayed at Stratford B&B with Mary Beth. The accommodations were very comfortable and spotless with a vintage feel. The building and rooms have fine details and touches that were interesting to discover and added a level of history and hominess at once. Mary Beth was a gracious and warm hostess. She was always ready with a restaurant recommendation or to chat about the festival history. The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious, with lovely details like fresh fruit smoothies and tomatoes from the garden on the premises. I loved the antique china and the silver coffee service. The theatres for the Shakespeare Festival are just half a block away; an easy walk down a shady, tree-lines street. There is parking for the B&B on the property so you aren't fighting for parking spaces on the street. Mary Beth was even kind enough to mail a necklace to us that we left behind :) I would highly recommend the Stratford B&B to anyone staying in Cedar City.
My husband and I stayed here on our way to SLC to visit our daughter. We were met first by Innkeeper Gary and then his wife Charlene walked in. What a delightful couple. We were showed to our room which was called The Peacock Garden room. We had asked specifically for this room since it was on the first floor and it was lovely. It faced a nice quiet tree-lined and had a beautiful bay window. The bed was extremely comfortable and it had a shower which we appreciated. Although we did not see the other room, everyone that we met could not say enough about their specific room. We were able to walk to a great restaurant which was nice. We then had a long and lovely conversation with Charlene out on the porch and got to learn more about the inn and how many of their guests are repeat customers. The full breakfast the next morning prepared by Gary was wonderful, esp. the cherry "soufflé" dish but everything else that was served was delicious. By the way, Gary makes awesome chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies. I can't say enough about this B&B but it was the innkeepers that who made us feel like family that was the best!!!
Impeccably clean and convenient location in a quiet neighborhood, great place to stay if you are attending Shakespeare Festival. Mary Beth is a great cook and the breakfast she served were all unique with fresh ingredients. We highly recommend this unique B&B.
This is a great place. Donna is amazing and the breakfast is delicious. Close to shopping, restaurants and entertainment. We were able to do day trips to Zion, Cedar Breaks, and Bryce Canyon. Perfect location for our travels.
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon, at the time we didn’t have any plans to go anywhere for our honeymoon, but we decided that we would take a small road trip through Arizona, Nevada and Utah. We had heard about this bed and breakfast through a family member, and they recommended it to us. My wife and I didn’t really want to stay at some random hotel or some boring change hotel, so we did some research into this bed and breakfast, and were impressed at what we saw online and read online, and since my wife and I have really never stayed at a bed and breakfast before we gave it a whirl and boy can I say it was amazing and thoroughly enjoyable. My wife and I had very strange travel schedule, and Charlene and her husband were very accommodating to this. When my wife and I did arrive, which was very late night, Charlene personally booked us into the Romeo and Juliet suite, and gave my wife and I a tour of the inn. We were very impressed and amazed and all the detail and craftsmanship that went into each room. Gary, Charlene's husband, was very kind and actually shared with me all the work he had personally done to the house and the details that went into each room. It was fascinating and interesting to hear. In addition, Gary was a great tour guide he recommended several restaurants for my wife and I to eat at and various attractions to visit while my wife and I were in town. Overall our experience was amazing! I LOVED every minute of it, and when my wife and I visit Cedar City I know exactly where we are staying. I highly recommended Amid Summer's Inn!!!!
Had a wonderful weekend with family at the Iron Gates B&B. Come to Cedar City for a wine event and wanted to relax at a B&B finding the best one in town! Great owners and great accommodations. Will return!
We were going to Brian Head for a one-day snowboarding/ski trip. We stayed in the queen room. The stay was lovely - susan and CR are so welcoming and friendly. Upon arrival, we also got a taste of the wine that was made and bottled from the winery. The building was historic and vintage. The kitty PJ is so cute!!!! The breakfast was also amazing, delicious and healthy. The dining room looked right out to the patio - when we were there, the snow and all the vintage stained glass throughout the glazing area cast an absolutely beautiful morning. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to go back anytime if we were in southern Utah!
We have stayed at several B&Bs, but this one outshines them all. Our hosts not only provided very impressive breakfasts each morning, but the wines the winery is producing are also amazingly some of the best we have ever found. The hosts are a wealth of information on the Cedar City, UT area, and every restaurant they suggested for dinner was amazing also. The bed and room were very comfortable (the temp was in the teens while we were there, but we were never cold in the house), and the B&B is located two blocks from the main street in town. We will definitely stay here again.
We recently stayed at the Garden Cottage B & B. You can actually see the Jones Theater for the Utah Shakespeare Festival from their front yard. Our room was on the ground floor with its own entrance around on the side. Before checking out, the very nice owner showed us all the rooms to help us decide on which one to choose for next year. We can't decide which one we like most! The breakfast was wonderful with warm homemade pumpkin scones with homemade pumpkin butter and fresh whipped cream. Fantastic!
