comfort in canyon country

4.2 on November 27, 2013

enjoyed our stay in mid November. the town of ecalante was quiet as the off season had just begun. great local recommendations and conversation from our innkeeper Tom. he kept us smiling and our coffee cups full. a comfortable stay in a charming room- nice murals, clean facilities and a snuggly bed. a beautiful place to hike and relax - can't wait to return!

Wonderful Lodging Near Grand Staircase-Escalante Nat. Mon.

4.6 on October 31, 2013

Looking for a place to stay before heading to Bryce, we spent two fabulous nights in mid-October at Escalante's Grand Staircase B&B. From the road, the inn looks unassuming. Although there is a small sign on the corner of Main Street (just west of Wells Fargo Bank), the inn faces North 300 W. The inn is a collection of three buildings. The rooms are located in two long tan units. Closer to Main Street is a blue house. Tom and his family live in the house which also serves as the office and the breakfast room. The lodging units are modern and the rooms are very large, comfortable and well-appointed. The inn features several different combinations of beds making it work for singles, couples and families. A New England transplant, Tom serves up excellent breakfasts with variations on old favorites: Apple French Toast, scrambled eggs with herbs. Tom is knowledgeable about the area and willing to share directions to hikes, drives and dining in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The closest option for dinner or lunch is the quirky Esclante Outfitters on Main Street right across North 300 West from the inn. It serves excellent pizza (sour dough crust), calzones, salads and assorted items plus fabulous home-made desserts and coffee. If you plan to explore the stark beauty of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument you will want to spend a couple of nights at the inn. You won't be disappointed.

Tom is an excellent host. His rooms are comfortable and very clean. He is always willing to share his vast knowledge of the area and serves delicious breakfasts. We would not hesitate to return or recommend.

3 daxs in Escalante

3.8 on October 23, 2013

We have been for 3 days in Escalante. Tom is a man with strict rules, but friendly and very helpfull to find out a good hiking program. The rooms are decorated with paintings in indian style. -Concerning the breakfast, Tom is a good cook with creative ideas. The guests don't have a choice. If they suffer in allergies, it might be disappointing for him when they just want toast, butter and marmelade. The breakfast room has a high level. All these things have a price, 135 $ per night incl. taxes.

Great B&B

4.0 on October 22, 2013

The room was very clean and comfortable. TV set provided is from the 80's, but I wasn't there for the TV so really not an issue. Location is key and was a great stopping off point on our way to Capitol Reef from Zion.
