What a charming B&B this was. The owner is right on-site (house next to the B&B). The location is amazing. Springdale is a small city and this B&B is close to several places to eat and shop – like very short walk. No need to drive anywhere in Springdale, everything is so close! {But set back far enough off the... More

Look no further - we won't stay anywhere else in Springdale / Zion. This was our first trip, and the Novel House and the very accommodating host, Ciaran, made it even more special. Each room is decorated along a theme recognizing an author. We were generously upgraded to the Bronte room because I indicated in our reservation that we were... More

I stayed in the Walt Whitman suite and it was a great experience. Ciaran greeted us by name upon check-in and offered exceptional personal service throughout our stay. He was definitely very knowledgeable about Springdale and Zion National Park. The Inn is in a perfect location. It's set well off from the main street (which has quite a bit of... More

This place made us feel like we are home or staying at best friends's house. As other reviewers state, this Inn is very unique that each room has famous author's name and decorated accordingly. We stayed at C.S. Lewis, author of "Narnia series." We had Queen size bed, writing desk, high back chairs to relax, and daybed...and big wardrobe which... More

After a tiring drive it was great to be greeted by Ciaran who took our bags yup the stirs to the room. Good introduction and explanation about everything in Zion! We had a good room, good facilities, seemed to keep a little too warm at night but nothing serious. Spotless, and a good cleaning each day. Enjoyed the cookies. The... More

What a great place to stay. First impressions are always important and the welcome from our host was warm and understanding considering our unexpected late arrival. Novel House was purposely built as a B&B establishment rather than being a conversion of an existing house. Consequently, the room was spacious, clean and beautifully presented. Although the rooms are named after authors,... More

Bit Different Stayed two nights in the Robert Louis Stevenson Room. If you like tartan and/or Scotland, this is the room for you. Interesting selection of Stevenson memorabilia covered the walls, tables, etc., and the number of pillows makes going to bed an engineering feat. (We, too, could not figure out the short sheets, but one easily adjusts.) Room was... More

Four of us stayed in the Jane Austin and R L Stevenson rooms for 2 nights. They were both upstairs rooms but that wasn't a problem as Ciaran helped us with our bags. They were both very different in style but equally comfortable and luxurious. It was a shame that each room had a large TV which dominated. The B... More

We spent two nights in the CS Lewis room and it was wonderful. Novel House Inn was our favorite stay on our 10 day trip around the Grand Circle Loop. Our host was gracious and very helpful. It was so relaxing on the patio having cookies and lemonade while conversing with the other guests as the sun went down. We... More

I can only add to what others have said about Novelhouse. We stayed in the Walt Whitman room, which was spacious and well-appointed. Our host was extremely gracious and informative about not only Zion park but the area surrounding the park. The b&b was conveniently located in the middle of the main road, close to the shuttle buses that take... More
