We stayed in the sunset room which had two queen beds. The room also had a dining table and chairs, a fireplace, small refrigerator, coffee maker (with freshly ground coffee provided each day). Everything about Kiva Koffeehouse and the Kottage are designed to be with / blend into the land creating a calm and serene place. We had spent the day canyoneering down a slot canyon with Excursions of Escalante and were exhausted and dirty. We had arranged with the owner to leave the key for us as we were going to arrive late, and when we walked in we were stunned with just how right everything felt. We were home. Beautiful bathroom with great shower and Jacuzzi. This was my favorite place to stay during our trip to Utah and I would never have known about it if it weren’t for other TA reviews. I’ll never forget driving back to our room here from a dinner at Hell’s Backbone, and taking pictures of the night sky from our private patio.
There are just two rooms here and if being all alone in the middle of Grand Staircase might spook you, don’t stay here, as you’re on your own after the Koffehouse closes around 4:30, but if you want to experience something special, then this is it.
Breakfast is at the Kiva Koffehouse when it opens at 8:30. We had great omelets in corn tortillas with fresh salsa one morning, and the oatmeal pancakes the next. Barrie the owner is very sweet, and can provide lots of information about what to do in the area.
Kiva Koffehouse and Kottage sit about mid way between Escalante and Boulder and about half a mile from the Calf Creek Falls area so it’s very convenient for exploring Grand Staircase.
