About this listing
We cater to the solo traveler. The traveler who likes adventure, nature and animals! We work at Best Friends, hike, rappel and rock climb.
You’ll love my place because of comfy beds & big living room for guests with 47 inch television and dish network and HDTV. When you walk in the front door you are on the "guest floor." so if you come in late you don't bother us! This listing is for the king bedroom. You will share the guest bathroom and guest living room with the other guest.
We have two guest bedrooms. One is usually occupied with a Best Friends Animal Society intern in it and the King bed is available for solo travelers. We limit each bedroom to one person because you will be sharing a bathroom.
We have a full size refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker on the guest floor which saves money on meals. There is no oven. Please note that we walk through the guest living room to get to the garage and front door but other than that you won't see us. If you want to ask questions about the area etc. we are more than happy to help!
The front door will be unlocked and/or I have a code for the door and you can arrive any time you want. Guests have the whole floor. Our space is accessed via a staircase but we have a door separating the living areas. Our visitors and our family will briefly walk through the common areas on the guest floor while heading to the garage but otherwise we stay upstairs. The front porch is a nice place to sit with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and enjoy the view of the red rocks.
Interaction with guests
We like to give guests their space but are happy to offer advice on hikes and adventure companies in and around town. I rarely see our guest because when I am working around the house they are out on adventures!!! I rarely see guests in the evening because I head to bed early but am available via text and I always make an effort to say hello.

In 2006 my husband and I said goodbye to the big city of Houston, Texas and moved to this amazingly beautiful remote town in Utah. Like many of our guests we were craving something more than the constant chatter and noise of urbanization. We craved the stillness of nature. We yearned for wide open spaces and walks so remote that you might think you are the first human to traverse this land. We moved here to make a positive difference in the lives of animals while working for Best Friends Animal Society and inadvertently created a higher quality of life.
After visiting with our guests we discovered was that they too were feeling much the same way we were. They wanted to feel close to the land, to get back to their roots and to discover the spiritual connection of all life that had somehow got lost. Our visitors find our place a refuge, a place to rejuvenate and explore, to work through transitions and to challenge themselves with a new adventure. We welcome you to stay with us and reflect and focus on the things that matter most. You will be able to recharge without constant distractions, to walk among the red rocks and hear your thoughts clearly.
We are relaxed and laid back host. We love to travel and have family in Kentucky, Texas and Florida.
I love rappelling and canyoneering and have a great group of friends to explore with. I don't like to camp and prefer a comfy bed and warm shower after a 12 hour day of exploring! My daughter and I are artist and we have artwork all over the house. We, of course, love animals, work at Best Friends and have one dog and two cats at the moment.
