This B&B' is a historic landmark in Kanab, UT. It was built near the turn of the century over a hundred years ago and was named after Zane Grey's novel 'Riders of the Purple Sage.' Zane Grey stayed in one of the Purple Sage Inn rooms in the 1920s. The Inn has been remodeled a few times over the years... More

This was a lovely place -- beautifully renovated, very friendly owners, and great food. We stayed in the master suite and it was HUGE. Was nice to have so much space, and the bathroom was amazing. It had its own little porch too, which was nice. It is a (relatively) short drive from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon... More

We spent five days with Kathy and Tory Brock at their absolutely charming inn, the Purple Sage, in Kanab, while we were hiking the parks in Utah and the North Rim, and it was a stellar experience! This charming old house, full of history and artifacts, charmingly decorated, cozy and comfortable, yet with all the amenities of home and more,... More

We have stayed at many bed & breakfast properties over the years but this establishment is by far is the best one. The innkeepers, Kathy and Tory are some of the nicest people we have met during our travels. It is worth traveling to Kanab just stay at this inn. I would give this inn a ten rating! Thank you...

We had for a long time wanted to visit the national parks near Las Vegas. Based on reviews in Tripadvisor we selected the Purple Sage Inn as our base for visits to the Grand Canyon North Rim, Bryce, and Zion. The Inn is situated in Kanab and the parks can be easily accessed as day trips. What we did not... More

If you find yourself near Kanab Utah on your travels, plan on staying here. Even if you aren't nearby, make a detour to stay here. It's a delightful place! Several things make it special. First, the innkeepers, Kathy and Tory Brock, are wonderful hosts. They are friendly and helpful; they immediately make you feel at home. Second, the Inn itself... More

I would start this review by saying that all other comments are so true for this accommodation . We arrived here fir two nights but are wishing we had stayed a week. The house is lovely, totally steeped in history. The bed soooo comfortable and Katy could not have been nicer. We also were lucky enough to have the house... More

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,... More

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... More

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... More
