The Purple Sage Inn is an outstanding inn, with friendly, helpful owners who make staying there a joy. Even if you are not planning to stay in Kanab - if you are planning to be anywhere in southwest Utah - it is worth going out of your way just to stay there - and it is close anyway to many beautiful areas.

Charming Kanab B&B

4.4 on October 17, 2014

Purple Sage Inn is situated in a charming renovated house from the late 1800's. It is right in downtown Kanab so you can walk a block or two to eat dinner or wander the main street. So much work has been done on the house, and the attention to detail is impressive, from the crown moldings and wainscoting to the lovely old doors, windows, and bathroom fixtures. The owner, Kathy, was so helpful in helping us plan our hiking and sightseeing activities, and became like a friend within the first few minutes of our acquaintance. Loved it, highly recommended!

Beautiful, atmospheric inn

I wish I had had the time to stay longer as this is my ideal bed and breakfast. Rooms are true to the period with great attention to detail. Wonderful porches for reading or chatting. Absolutely delicious breakfast. An unusually sympathetic and thoughtful host. For me it was a nostalgic plus to know that Zane Grey lived and worked in this house.

We LOVED this bed and breakfast - great location for day trips, absolutely a 5 star breakfast presentation, and Kathy (the owner) was so full of information and hospitality that we will definitely go back - our only change would be to stay longer!! K&M Hunt

Kathy and Tory have the best B&B! Everything about the stay was superb. Kathy's breakfasts are to die for, wonderfully prepared and diverse. Kanab is the hub for the highways leading to Bryce, Grand Canyon, Zion and Escalante National Parks. Perfectly located.

A special place

We have just had our second visit to Kanab and to the Purple Sage Inn.. and I would love to visit again. This is a really wonderful Inn with delightful period rooms that are spotless and well stocked with all the necessities like shampoos and soaps. The sheets are a wonderful quality and beds really comfortable. But best of all are the evening drinks chatting n the back garden and the absolutely delicious breakfasts with tomatoes from the garden and eggs and bacon. Kathy is a wonderful in-house guide and nothing is ever too much trouble. Thank you again for a truly special visit.

Great place to stay!

Kathy was an excellent hostess that made us feel comfortable immediately. We slept in the master suite; the bed was comfortable and the bathroom extremely well appointed. We were offered drinks upon our arrival, which were welcome after our long day of hiking in Zion National Park. The breakfast was the best we experienced on our week-long vacation, and Kathy accommodated my wheat allergy. I will definitely recommend this B&B to my friends.

Outstanding experience

I was concerned about the flooding and closure of I-15 that occured 5 days prior to my visit and Kathy could not have been more helpful in providing me updates on the road conditions throughout the week. When I arrived I found the Rachel room was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. I had to start my next day early and requested an early breakfast. Expecting to receive cereal and coffee due to the early request, I woke up to wonderful smells coming from the kitchen and when I went down to breakfast I was offered an outstanding breakfast of fruit, yogurt, a tasty vegetarian omlette, toast and homemade jam. I will definately be staying here again on my next visit to Kanab.
