We live right next door to this cozy little house, which we have renovated from top to bottom. It's all new: new paint, carpets, windows, cabinets, appliances and bathroom fixtures. It would be great for individuals, couples, or small families who need a base camp for visiting beautiful San Juan County. Coming to Blanding for business? Bring the family. They'll have a homey place to hang out, cook, and relax while you work. Then spend evenings and weekends hiking and exploring SE Utah.

The space

It's a small two-and-a-half bedroom house, and we've tried to think of everything you might need to make your stay complete.

Guest access

The whole house is yours, and we've tried to make the little house feel like home. We hope you'll feel relaxed and rested during your stay.

Interaction with guests

We live next door, and we're happy to help you when we can, but we respect your privacy. Your entry will be by key code, so you can come and go as you please.

Other things to note

Although the inside of the house is newly remodeled and complete, the yard is a work in progress.

We had a great 2 nights. The little house is actually nicer than it looks in the pictures! And Kathryn is an amazing host. She greeted us on arrival, then we found homemade cookies when we entered, and there was Keurig Starbucks coffee. We would love to return!

This was our first AirBnB experience - and it was a fantastic start. After staying in hotels / motels for several days during our road trip, I was looking for something homey, where we could also cook ourselves. We booked spontaneously in the morning of the same day and it was no problem at all. Response was immediate and informative. Check in was no problem with a code. We were welcomed with cookies and a nice letter with informations. The little house was really very homey the kitchen was equipped with everything needed to prepare a meal. The bathroom was also roomy with immediate hot water. Bed was very comfy and heating worked well. The conversation with Kathryn and Winston was adding to our positive experience. But if preferred there is no need for any direct interaction. All in all it was a great experience. We actually wanted to extend the stay by a night but when we decided it was already booked by the next lucky guests. At least we put the first Swiss pin in the map!

Grayson Getaway is a lovely property that is perfect for a family, or any one, wanting to enjoy all of the nearby beauty and grandeur of the American Southwest. You will have Kathryn and Winston's adorable little house all to yourselves. It is well-appointed and very comfortable. The hosts live. Ext door and so are readily available if needed, but stay out of your way if not. Everything was perfect down to the freshly baked cookies that greet you upon arrival. Don't miss the Edge of the Cedars State Park and Museum which is very close by. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Kathryn and Winston!

Two thumbs up. The place was immaculately clean, comfortable and quiet. Prospective guest should know that the town of Blanding offers very little in the way of restaurants. That said, it makes a good jumping-off point for southeastern Utah sightseeing.

Great little place in Blanding! The house is clean, comfortable and homey! Hosts were very attentive, and quick/thorough with communication. We were only spending the night on our way through, but I would definitely like to stay again with my whole family when we have a few days for vacation!

Kathryn And Winston User Profile

We are both retired. For 20 years I (Kathryn) taught high school English in our small town in southeastern Utah. The last 10 years of my educational career were spent as the director of San Juan School District's Heritage Language/ Culture Center, where we created Navajo language and culture curriculum materials for use in K-12 classrooms. Winston is an archaeologist specializing in the prehistoric cultures of the southwest. We have been married 47 years and have three children and six grandchildren. They are all growing up way too fast. We both enjoy reading, hiking, and exploring new places.
I could not live without my sewing machine. I consider myself a compulsive quilter. I make eight to ten full size quilts every year, and I'm part of a small group of women who make baby quilts for mothers in need. We make and gift about 75 baby quilts every year.
Winston's vocation is also his avocation. He could not live without his hiking boots. He loves to hike in the deserts and canyons in southeastern Utah to find and document archaeological sites. I sometimes have a hard time convincing him to travel because he sincerely believes there's no better place to be than right where he is.
It would be difficult for me to live without my step aerobics class. Our small town has a little recreation center, where I attend class three mornings per week.
We're not the most talkative couple in the world, although we do enjoy good conversation. Our taste in movies runs the exact opposite of fast moving, video game-like action. Is it a sign of age that we like things quiet and "real"?
We haven't traveled tons, but probably our favorite destination was Western Samoa in 2004. We stayed for a month, and our accommodations were private homes along the beach because there simply were no hotels. We understand it has changed and has become much more commercialized now. This Christmas season all our children were going to be somewhere else for the holidays, so we went on a road trip to southern Arizona. We just drove where the road took us, mostly through the Sonoran Desert to small towns. It was lovely.
