The Young Home Bed and Breakfast

460 N Toquer Blvd , Toquerville, 84774 USA (Show map)


Just 25 minutes away from the amazing rocks of Zion National Park, relax in secluded, rocky Toquerville! Make your own meal in our full kitchen or the BBQ grill outside. Families welcome! Breakfast provided, of course! We can give you tips on the hikes that are best suited for you as you explore Zion. We live in the upstairs portion of the home, the downstairs portion is our Bed and Breakfast. It has been described by our guests in this way, " would never know you were below ground," because of the big, open window wells that let so much light in. It has its own back entrance, and these common areas: 1. Large living room, dining/kitchen area that covers 616 sq. feet. 44' long space includes living room, large library, cozy fireplace, 42" flat-screen TV with cable. Pool table in the center, and a large dining table and beautiful corner glass table (our breakfast nook.) Sitting atop two large volcanic boulders you'll wonder how we got there! Full kitchen: fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee brewing station. 2. The bathroom: tub and shower, large mirror. Stack-able washer and dryer free of charge. Soap, shampoo, and conditioner are provided. 3. Theatre Room: Reserve from 6:00-10:00 pm 265 sq. ft. with a 126" screen. 4. Just for the kids: a separate toy room with doll house, giant ball roller, marble rollers, and various other fun creations from "Grandpa Gary's Wooden Toys." 5. Outside we have a large natural gas grill and deck available for your use.

Fantastic Experience at Young Bed and Breakfast

5 on August 29, 2017

After many nights in hotels as part of our road trip, we were so grateful to have found such gracious hosts in Karlene and Gary in their beautiful home. While the proximity to Zion is what initially caught our attention, we were very pleased with our experience in Toquerville for many other reasons as well. The Youngs were completely accommodating and provided us with delicious breakfast, cold and frozen waters for our hiking, delightful puzzles and crafts, and a very real feeling of being at home. Would highly recommend to anyone planning on visiting Zion or southern Utah, they will take great care of you.

A totally different experience!

5 on June 06, 2017

I've been to many houses before but this one has a unique story. The first thing you notice is the flow of the history of this great family through the wooden crafts, toys, books, and pictures all around the home. When we first checked in we were asked to leave our stuff in the toy room. And that's where we found a lot of interesting handmade toys and beautiful crafts. One thing that you notice about this family is their endless generosity. They share all their memories and stuffs with you. They thought about every possible details to make your stay pleasant. A big kitchen space with full fridge and pantry for you to use, hot showers with all the hair and body care products provided for you, books, puzzles, home theatre and etc. You definitely feel comfortable with all the facilities they provided for you. The only regret is you may not have enough time to use them all! We missed the chance of watching a movie in their amazing home theatre because we were exhausted after a long hike in Zion. We were invited to cake and ice cream and had tons of fun with the wooden puzzles and games shown by Gary. Karlene and Gary were the kindest host we've ever had and they made our stay a lot more fun that we imagined. I can say that I miss their home and would never forget the nice memories they made for us during this visit.

WOW!!! What a great place!!!

5 on April 02, 2017

The Young Home Bed and Breakfast was a great place to stay!!! The rooms were extremely clean and the beds were comfortable. The Youngs were amazing hosts making sure we had everything we needed and making sure we were taken care of. They cooked us a delicious breakfast on our last morning and had yogurt and fruit and eggs and toast and snacks and cereal available for us the other mornings. Only a short distance to Zion National Park, It was a great place to come home and relax after a fun day of adventure. They even have a great theater room to watch movies on a big screen before calling it a night. What an amazing stay and AMAZING hosts, it really felt like home sweet home!!!. Thank You Youngs!!!

Gary and Karlene Young were wonderful hosts with great accommodations. Their B&B is situated in their spacious basement and beautifully decorated with lots to entertain us from a pool table and movie room to many marble rollers and handmade wooden puzzles that kept my husband and other guests up late trying to figure them out. Additionally, there was a play room which included toys and books that my 3 year old daughter was very excited about.

Innkeeper Response
You're awesome! The grandkids loved playing with your daughter; hope you can visit us again.

Amazing Stay at The Young Home

5 on April 09, 2016

The Young Home My wife and I wanted to see Zion National Park and decided to stay at a BnB for a change. We had really wonderful stay at The Young Home. Karlene and Gary were gracious hosts and took a lot of effort to ensure our stay was pleasant. When we got there, they personally walked us through all the amenities. Every little detail was taken care of. A fully stocked Kitchen (Cooking range, Utensils, Cutlery) and refrigerator with various choices for Breakfast (including Bread, Bagels, Milk, Coffee, Water, Butter, Fruits, Cream Cheese, Jam). Karlene even offered to make us a Hot Breakfast on Sunday. She had also baked some awesome Banana Bread for us. The Bedroom and Bathroom were very clean and well stocked (Bed, Pillows, Towels, Laundry, Iron board, various Toiletries and an amazing shower) They have fast Wifi internet, a Macbook for use, a nice Pool Table. They have a really cool Theater room with a Big screen, nice Sound system and Couches, Recliners to seat a large family. They have ~250 movies to watch! Gary made us a nice yummy Avacado smoothie and we enjoyed it while watching a nice movie! They had Hiking Maps and Activitiy Booklet for ZionNP. We were able to pack lunches for our hikes (Kitchen is stocked with Ziplock bags, Napkins, Aluminum wrap). So that saved a lot of time. Gary is a Toy inventor and has created several cool unique Toys that one can play around with to figure out how they work. He gifted us each a unique Toy that is nicely set on our display at home. Karlene & Gary treated us like friends and we will never forget our stay with them, we will definitely go back again.

Wonderful House Close to Zion National Park

5 on March 28, 2016

We loved our stay here. The rooms were perfect for us. They were great hosts, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. Perfect accommodations for traveling. We liked that there was a kitchen to use, tv if we wanted and even a pool table. It is only a 20 minute drive to Zion National Park. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! We loved getting to know you and are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our home. I appreciate your kindness and gift to help me deal with my brother's death. It was above and beyond!
