Loved it!

This was our first stay at a B & B, and I'm afraid we may have been spoiled. We had a wonderful two nights with our host, Kathy, at The Purple Sage Inn. We were made to feel right at home and loved every minute. The rooms are cozy and filled with wonderful antiques. The breakfasts were fantastic! Fresh fruit eggs, bacon, toast with homemade jam! A true delight! We hope to return for another visit to the Kanab area.


This is how you do it...

From the moment you step into the warm welcoming lounge (festooned with Hallowe'en decorations, as was appropriate for the time of our stay) one feels "at home" at The Purple Sage Inn in Kanab. The whole house is immaculately finished with Victorian period details in-keeping with the house all over. Kathy & Tory are perfect hosts: interesting and interested they recommended some great places to eat: (Houston's Trail's End serves some magnificent home-made pies: save some space for them). The room was magnificent, large clean and tidy. Bathroom was decked out with more accoutrements than I have seen in many top-end hotels. Wifi signal strong and we were invited to help ourselves to "sodas" in the fridge. Breakfast deserves a special mention: we are regular travellers in The USA and this is one of the best we have ever eaten. All home-cooked, using lots of produce from their garden it remains one of the most memorable meals we had on a two week trip: truly a legendary breakfast. Kathy & Tory are on-hand to advise about the area: where to visit what to see, what to avoid, when to go, all peppered with local knowledge that really does make the difference. They are genuinely eager to help. In summation one of the most pleasant B&Bs we have ever stayed in, great location, excellent amenities/services and hosted by two truly lovely people. On leaving we said "We'll will return". I sincerely hope we do.


Lovely accommodation and welcoming friendly owner.

Really enjoyed our overnight stay, Cathy was lovely, very friendly and relaxed, made us all feel very welcome indeed. The breakfast was better than a 5 star hotel I kid you not. Many thanks for your excellent hospitality. Yvonne, Mark and Jose


Purple Sage is a great base to explore beautiful Utah and Arizona

5 on November 11, 2015

I stayed at the Purple Sage Inn for 5 nights while doing day trips out to explore the Utah and Arizona countryside. Kathy was a great hostess. She is very friendly and offers advice on things to see and do, dining and shopping. She repeatedly went above and beyond to help me when I asked for advice. It was a pleasure talking with her each morning over breakfast and in the evening after my return. Kathy prepared a beautiful and delicious breakfast that included fresh fruit every morning. I felt so spoiled! She keeps snacks and drinks on hand for her guests. I enjoyed sitting by the fire in the evening chatting with Kathy, other guests and friends that stopped by. The house is beautiful and very homey. I felt quite comfortable there and slept very well. I would definitely stay at Purple Sage again. In fact, I hope to return to that area in the next year or so!


Excellent B&B

Lovely house. We were very well looked after by Karel, who was standing in for the owners on the days we stayed. Julian and Jean from the UK.


Best Ever

Kathy goes out of her way to be friendly and helpful. The Hazel room was perfect with a spacious bath and large sitting area. It is in the attic with some tricky ceilings but we found it to be private, clean and interestingly decorated with antiques, as is all the house. Be sure to dine at Rocking V, around the corner. Kanab is a great entry city to gorgeous Utah. We also chose it , though 30 miles from North Rim, to be the better stay over Jacob's Lake.


A must stay

Outstanding!

What a great tour of a wonderful property when we arrived. Our hostess is very knowledgeable and proud of the history of her B&B and Kanab. We stayed in the Zane Grey suite which we highly recommend. The breakfast was the best we've had at a B&B

We stayed in the Zane Grey room for two nights, it was wonderful! Kathy was a great hostess and the breakfasts were perfection! My husband's birthday was on the last day and Kathy even gave him a cupcake with a candle on it for his breakfast!
