Purple Sage Inn
Ranked #1 of 6 Kanab B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 April 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Purple Sage for one night in April. Our room was small, tidy, and comfortable, with a small deck and several historic pieces as decoration. The bathroom was across the hall. The breakfast was outstanding--the best of our whole trip. It was a perfectly prepared veggie omelette just oozing with flavorful veggies and cheese, as well an ample fresh fruit, juice, coffee, and bacon. Kathy and Tory treated us like family. The location of the inn was great. We walked just a few blocks to Rocking V's for dinner at night, and the next day we drove just about half an hour to a fabulous hike in Grand Staircase (Lick Wash). Kanab is a good jumping-off point for exploring the Paria / Grand Staircase / Zion area, and it has a fun wild-west feel--though admittedly there is not much going on in town. I would recommend Purple Sage to anyone who will be in the area.

We stayed three nights at this Bed and Breakfast Inn. Kathy makes you feel right at home and makes superb breakfasts. She puts the house at your disposal for the time you are there and lunching in the beautiful back yard was a bonus. Coffee, fruit and cookies are also freely available. We had the master suite which is just excellent. It has a huge bathroom and a large comfortable bed. There is only one TV in the living room but for us this was no issue. Kathy also helped us plan our days in Knab which turns out to be a great centre for the area.

My wife and I stayed four nights at the Purple Sage in late September 2013. We were privileged to occupy "The Master Suite", which boasts an enormous double-queen bed and a separate bathroom with beautiful antique plumbing fixtures. Kathy, the owner-operator, was gracious and hospitable throughout. Breakfasts were superb and congenial, with all the guests sitting down at a communal table and sharing itineraries and insights. Kathy went above and beyond our expectations of service at a bed and breakfast, from offering guests a glass of wine on arrival, to booking dinner at the Rocking V Restaurant and accommodating our individual dietary needs at breakfast.

Room Tip: The best room is "The Master Suite", which is large and beautifully appointed.

We recently stayed at the Purple Sage Inn and had a wonderful time. Kathy was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious, with fresh fruit, some locally grown. The Inn itself has a fascinating history and is beautifully restored with Victorian decor and antiques. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. Kanab is conveniently located between Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks. It is an excellent base for visits to both parks. We highly recommend the Purple Sage Inn.

We stayed here during the famous "US shutdown" and it made up for the inconvience.....Kathy was a tremendous hostess and cooked an excellent, varied and filling breakfast - with fruit, yoghurt, eggs, potatoes and more. We had peaches freshly grown and as much juice and coffee as we wanted. One thing we particularly enjoyed was sitting round the large dining table comparing notes on what to do in the area.

We stayed for two nights in the smallest room - the others were booked - but the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was great with everything you could want - including hair dryer.

It was a perfect place to stay and both Kathy and her other guests gave us great advice on what to see. We ate out In a very good local restaurant (Rocking Vs) but we did notice others eating their dinner at the breakfast table - and we enjoyed sitting on the patio with our drinks.

Very highly recommended - we would love to return when the canyon is open - and there is so much more than the canyon to see.

What a fabulous place to stay in the heart of the Old West - at least as far as Hollywood is concerned. Our hostess Kathy was absolutely fantastic, and she operates a first class B&B. We stopped by to say hello on our way through Kanab on our way to the Grand Canyon North Rim - as we planned to stay here a couple days later after hiking into the Grand Canyon. We were fortunate enough to select the Zane Grey room - what a treat. Super comfortable bed - perfect after a 14 mile hike and 5700 foot elevation gain from the bottom of the canyon. Great history in this old house - and a fabulous breakfast the next morning.

What a great surprise! A warm welcome from the inn-keepster and a grand tour around the house are the start of your stay here. A house with a lot of history, filled with antique items. Large rooms with comfortable beds and during our stay this September it was still possible to have breakfast at the large garden table. And what a breakfast! Loads of fresh fruits, yoghurt and a hot item makes this a breakfast you'll remember.
Also the location is great, just a very short walk to shops and nearby restaurants. Certainly value for money!!
