Located just 35 minutes from Zion National Park and 90 minutes from the Grand Canyon’s less-traveled North Rim, Kanab’s picturesque Parry Lodge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Guests staying at the property can enjoy leisurely drives to several of Utah’s most revered national parks and monuments, including not only Zion but also Bryce Canyon, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (Lake Powell), Grand Staircase and Pipe Springs National Monument. Situated in the heart of downtown Kanab, Parry Lodge offers quaint, comfortable accommodations in the center of it all.

Parry Lodge is also sanitizing each room and opening windows to air the rooms where available. In addition, staff will no longer share living quarters and will be housed separately in observance of social distancing mandates. Additional services and facilities may be phased in as the season progresses.
