PLEASE NOTE: We are less a typical BnB, and more a "bed and full kitchen!" Learning from our time working as local outfitters and guides, and mindful of the many different food preferences and allergies, we work in a different model and do not offer a scheduled, prepared breakfast so you can better plan your meals in any way befitting your adventure schedules and eating routines. 2 Cranes Inn is a contemplative whimsical eco-conscious inn for your Zion Canyon explorations. Set back from the main road, there are four charactered and comfortable bedrooms to offer, each with their own full private bathroom. Three beds are queen-sized, one king, with extra bed options if needed. One room is on the ground floor with easy access. Two Cranes Inn invites guests to relax and mingle in our many common areas. The fully-equipped communal kitchen offers guests their own cupboard cabinet for storage and shared space in the refrigerator. Outdoors, guests are welcome to relax on the wrap-around porch and use the large gas grill on the covered back patio. There is a large sandstone-lined fire pit and extensive garden with fruit trees in which to meditate or swing in a hammock. To support and enhance your canyon retreat experience there are no televisions. Our free high-speed wireless internet is available throughout the property should you need to dip back into the digital world during your stay. There is also a digital printer available for guest use. In our large and fully equipped communal kitchen you will hopefully find all you need, including complimentary fresh-ground coffee, an assortment of teas, a room-specific cupboard for all your shelf-stable items, and a shared refrigerator. There are also a few basic convenient food items available (oat meals, juices, non-dairy milks, snacks) especially helpful if you happen to arrive late. There are also excellent grocery and restaurant options in the nearby town of Springdale, just up the road at the entrance to the national park. The Kolob Elk Room is our spacious and colorful upstairs suite with a queen-sized bed, full private bath, and an extra table and loveseat sitting area. With windows at each end of the room, it offers a bright and open atmosphere. Perfect for stretching out on longer stays. The Red Fox Room is our peaceful upstairs room with a California King bed, full private bath, and northern views. Great for sleeping in. The Dragonfly Room is our sunny upstairs room, with queen-sized bed, full private bath, personal writing desk, and southern views. It overlooks the front lawn with its many fruit trees and offers a view of Eagle Crags. Great for early risers. The Desert Tortoise Room is our sunny downstairs room with queen-sized bed, easy access, and full private bath. The window faces our spacious front lawn and enormous pecan trees. All rooms may be reserved at once for larger gatherings, weddings, holidays, corporate off-sites, or other special events.

We stayed at this lovely guesthouse before and after a backpack trip across Zion National Park (called "trans Zion) from West to East Rim. Relatively new owners are friendly, laid back and have made this a lovely place to hang out. Caretakers Raphael & Rebecca are the best! Nice

Three couples on a trip to Zion booked three rooms at 2Cranes Inn and loved it! Great accommodations, we all had our own room with private bath. Plenty of room for dinner at the dining room table and we enjoyed the outdoor spaces as well. The attention to detail was appreciated

My son and I stayed for 2 nights in July 2018, and did some hiking in Zion parc. The 2 cranes inn is a nice place to be, outside of the crowds, but very close to the parc. We stayed in the Kolob Elk suite and it was very comfortable for us. The furnishments made us feel at

Hi There are 4 of us looking to stay. How large are your rooms?
Hi Jim, Our Kolob Elk room has two beds, a queen and a full. This would work if your party of 4 can share beds. I hope this helps!

Hello, Audrey! Thank you for your inquiry, and our apologies for such a delayed reply! Not the way we typically conduct our communications. I just found this in our old messages, and it appears you were asking about a time span exactly around the time we closed the property sale, so your inquiry likely feel through the cracks of changing ownership. We trust you were able to find adequate accommodation for you travels? We are now very happily up and running on this end since the end of September, with our own new look and feel, so if you ever return to the Zion area we would love another chance to host you! In any case, happy trails and safe travels, Lisa and Lizette

"The Elk room is very spacious with cross-ventilation"
"Kolob room has two beds and a table, nice space for two people who don't want to sleep together."
"There is one room downstairs with no stairs, while the others are up one flight of stairs."
"Front of the house has best views"
