Having travelled a lot and me being used to swanky hotels, I did not know what to expect when I was looking for a place to stay that was sort of close to Zion,Bryce and other areas.
Panguitch is about an hour from Zion and quick 30 mins to Bryce Canyon, Red Canyon etc. Once I narrowed down my location it was fairly easy to narrow down my choice. Since there are no big chain hotels, and the motels in town were not exactly to my expectations, I looked at a few B&B. My correspondences were through emas and Peggy from Redbrick took the time to write to me on what to expect, pricing, number of rooms etc. I was impressed with her effort and integrity and decided to forego any more searches ! It was a great decision never to be regretted even for a second.
I requested Peggy for a late check in and she was ok with me coming in by 930 pm, also no problems with coming with a special veg diet. Peggy was waiting for us after a long day, with the warm welcoming and genuinely affectionate feeling that made me feel as I was coming home:) Peggy showed us the room upstairs and she was kind enough to let me have my own room even though I had only booked for one room with 3 adults. That was a pleasant surprise.
We got to choose the breakfast time the next morning (anytime after 7am). The breakfast was out of the world with home made yogurt served in small glass containers, hot coffee, orange juice, fresh quinoa and veg quiche and zucchini frites. Peggy uses local farm products and she has hens and eggs from her own picture perfect backyard. Everyday the breakfast was different with Peggy's unique touch that has to be experienced.
When we were ready to head out Peggy gave us some wonderful and practical suggestions for hikes and exploring the scenic byway 12. She is also very knowledgeable on dinner choices, things to do... You name it, she seems to know.
The day we left, I was a little sad knowing that I will miss the hospitality and the wonderful warmth, not to mention the amazing and healthy food:) I would go back there at the drop of a hat
