Purple Sage

3.8 on November 03, 2017

Great place. Lots of history and some amazing antiques. We stayed at 5 B&Bs on our trip and this was the best. Unbelievable breakfast. Cool to stay where Zane Gray stayed while doing research for 'Riders of the Purple Sage'. I would have rated them 'outstanding' in all but value category but for some reason the rating process would not let me go more than 'exceeded expectations'.

Best place in town

Kathy and Tory really know their stuff. They are the most attentive of hosts, gourmet cooks (with veggies straight from their garden), and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. The inn itself has quite a rich history and has been restored beautifully. The Purple Sage Inn is definitely at the top of our list of B&Bs.

Great experience

My husband and I stayed at the Purple Sage for two nights at the beginning of our vacation and for two nights at the end of our trip in the rarely Fall. Kathy was warm and friendly and very helpful with questions about the area and National Parks. I include her husband and sister in on those good qualities as well. And the breakfasts were outstanding! As many as a dozen different fruits to start with as well as homemade preserves, salsa, and tomatoes from their garden. We highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.

Just perfect!

We've stayed with Kathy and Tory several times. It's quite possibly the best B&B in all of Utah! Whenever we meet people on our hikes, we always mention the Purple Sage Inn. Kathy makes the best (and biggest) breakfast, which keeps us fueled all day long! She always has the freshest fruit! The peaches are the BEST I've ever eaten! And the homemade apricot jam...delicious! Kathy is so warm and inviting, she treats us like family! She is so knowledgable about the area, and always make great suggestions on where to explore next. I can't wait to stay here again--I'm already planning next year's adventure!

Simply Awesome

My husband and I absolutely loved Kathy and Tory and their beautiful bed and breakfast. The house is so historical and quaint. They have such interesting antiques. They have a stunning outdoor area which included a beautiful Utah view. Our breakfast was such a feast. Kathy even had some homemade jelly from her garden. It was so nice and relaxing and just adored Kathy and Tory.

Another great stay

I returned to the Purple Sage Inn after staying there three years ago. Luckily, nothing has changed. Kathy and Tory are gracious, knowledgeable, and friendly hosts. The location is central to three national parks. The house is historical and filled with period artifacts, and Kathy is extremely knowledgeable about the area's history. Amazing breakfast will keep you fueled for hours of hiking and exploring. Can't wait until my next stay!

Exceeded expectations

Small town Kanab has a museum quality lodging with gracious local hosts who cared for us, cooked superbly, and left us with a wonderful feeling about Utah. Squeaky clean although authentic antiques and even plumbing fixtures! It was honestly, a unique experience for NewEnglanders to sample a bit of the old west in a modern time. The hosts were gracious and welcoming and the best part.

Lovely Inn

Beautiful house with lots of interesting antiques collected by owner. Very comfortable, clean, spacious room and bathroom (we stayed in the master bedroom). Quiet location, but just a very short walk to downtown. Every need thought of, including wine in the guest fridge. Absolutely delicious breakfasts - homemade jams, fruit and vegetables from the garden, creative egg dishes. Kathy is a delightful host - felt like an new old friend by the end of our 3 night stay. My husband and I loved this place!

Kind of Amazing

We just completed an 8-night stay at the Purple Sage Inn. For us, that was our longest stay anywhere, ever. Honestly, we have zero suggestions for improvement. It was that good. Food - wonderful and timing flexible; accommodations - excellent and beautiful; friendliness/helpfulness - these guys care, almost like family; access to 3 National parks - 1.5 hours or less. Over the years, we have stayed in five B&Bs, all first class. The Purple Sage Inn is easily the best. Our sincere gratitude to owners/operators Kathy & Tory for a wonderful experience. - Jim & Faye
