Historical Traveler Reviews Stone Canyon Inn Tropic
wow....it was more than we expected
if you are travelling to Bryce Canyon, you MUST stay here....
it is located in Tropic, a 20 minute drive from the enterance to Bryce Canyon, but from the location, you can see the "hoodoo's"
it is spectacular...
we stayed in one of the cabins, and it was clean and quiet...it is located on its own property in the wilderness....deer and rabbit all around....just stunning
i wouldn't stay anywhere else!
Super cute cabins
Labor Day trip to Utah and stayed at Stone Canyon the first night. The cabin was sooooo awesome....it was clean, cozy, and had an kewl fire place. Seemed like it was just built and the furnishings were new. We cooked breakfast the next morning and I didnt have to bring any utensils, frying pans or anything because it was all there already. It had 2 queen beds and a pull out sofa bed. Only bad thing was that the jacuzzi had dirty water in it but we were so tired from activities that it didnt matter. BTW: water rafting in Marysvale and ATVing in Bryce canyon is a MUST!
A little more expensive than some of the other motels on our grand tour of the South West but well worth it. A lovely place to stay. This is a very comfortable,well appointed and maintained bed and breakfast. The young hosts are very friendly and really make you feel at home. The breakfasts were superb and set you up for the rest of the day. All facilities such as the patio, lounge with library are available for all the guests. It is only a tree mile walk into the quiet part of Bryce Canyon.
Highly recommended, a great place to stay.
The Nicest Place to Stay in Bryce
We finished our grand circle trip at Bryce Canyon and loved our stay at the Stone Canyon Inn. We stayed in one of the brand new cabins which had a deck with a private hot tub. The inside was extremely well decorated, brand-new kitchen, very private. During the short drive to Bryce Canyon, I patted myself on the back for my inn choice every time we passed another hotel closer to the park.
The inn-keepers were fantastic - extremely nice, great breakfast, very knowledgeable.
You could hike into the park from just down the road - definitely ask the inn-keepers for more details.
We got to see two of the rooms in the inn - and they looked gorgeous as well.
I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else in Bryce.
If heaven were a B&B ...
My partner and I recently spent just one night here, and how we wish we had been able to spend more. After having passed through a few tiny towns in Utah that made us want to press more firmly on the accelerator of our rental SUV, we were a little afraid as we approached Tropic after a day of hiking at Bryce Canyon. Access to the Stone Canyon Inn is via a dirt road, surrounded by absolutely nothing. It was hard to believe there'd even be a B&B out here. But then the inn came into view, and we knew our fears were unfounded. The inn itself is a magnificent stone and post-and-beam construction, surrounded by wilderness that I believe is part of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The owner, and designer of the inn, Dixie, showed us to our room, and we hope we didn't look too much like hicks as our jaws dropped at the sight. The Ivy room was the most spacious and elegant room we've ever stayed in. A whirlpool tub with a window looking out onto a beautiful butte was the centerpiece of a bathroom that was bigger than some other motel and B&B rooms we've stayed in. This also has to be the quietest inn we've ever stayed at: although it was full the night of our stay, we didn't hear a sound and could have easily thought we had the place to ourselves. Even though we weren't able to stay for long, having to set out for Moab the next day, we think this would be a prime spot from which to explore Bryce and some of the other unkown hikes and bike rides nearby. Our one and only breakfast here was superb. The only downside we can think of is that if fine dining is an important part of your travel experience, the town of Tropic doesn't offer much. Still, with the Stone Canyon Inn to lay your head down at night, who cares!
Stone Canyon and Bryce Canyon, both incredible
What a beautiful place... 10 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park, near Dixie National Forest, Escalante State Park, and Cedar Breaks, it was just lovely. The Inn has 6 rooms and my husband and I opted for the Cedar Room with huge double doors, a king size bed, a fouton for just sitting and relaxing and it's very own deck overlooking some of the most beautiful country I've ever seen in my life. The bathroom suite was huge with a small room with the toilet, a walk in closet, a huge 2 person jacuzzi and shower with windows looking out at the countryside so you can shower and see the sunrise or set while you shower. It was really lovely. A homemade breakfast was also included in the price. We stayed 2 nights in October and loved it. Since most places in Tropic closed early it was great to come back and sit on the deck a while or watch one of the many satellite TV channels available (yes there's something for everyone). The only reason not five is the matress felt a bit saggy and the shower, without an individual curtain, though refreshing was a little cold in October. Wish we had stayed longer. Would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks to the owner Dixie and her staff for a truly magnificent experience.
Kudos to the Stone Canyon Inn. Thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay. Rooms were clean and comfortable; bath area was spa-like; breakfast delicious. And the views...sunrise from our room, sunset off the deck. Wow!
Wonderful place to stay and worth the price
My husband and I recently stayed at the Stone Canyon Inn for 3 nights, and it was a great experience. The hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful. They were able to recommend activities to do, and gave us a map with very detailed directions to get to the hikes they recommended. The breakfasts were incredibly tasty and provided a great time to talk with the other guests. Our room was huge and well-maintained, with a very comfortable bed and great view of the sunrise. The location of the Inn was great for exploring both Bryce Canyon and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. I would highly recommend staying at the Stone Canyon Inn. If we are ever in the area again we definately stay there.
Fantastic Accomadation and Fantastic Hosts
I can highly recommend staying in one of the cabins; they are tastefully furnished to a very high standard and are fully equipped. The Loge looked wonderful as well
Dixie and her family make you feel most welcome; the cabins are suitable for Honeymooners and families. We spent a few nights star gazing from the Jacuzzi on the outside deck. The location is ideal for Bryce Canyon
In Tropic but on a piece of property that seperates it from town and any neighbors so it feels more remote and private. Great views- better than what you would get from inside or closer to Bryce. The deck is great for star gazing. Rooms are modern and very well furnished. Reminded me of staying in an expensive condo in Aspen. Hosts are genial. Breakfast, sinful.

We woke up and got out fairly early as flash flood warnings were threatening. We of course picked yet another strenuous hike. This time we would go down Bryce point and then make our way through peek a boo loop back up to the top on Navajo trail. Because it had been drizzling all night there was 2 inches of clay stuck to our feet as we started the …
... and impart knowledge (grass, rocks and animal scat were a prominent feature of his talks). We took two short but steep trails (under 2 miles): 'Queen Victoria' and 'Navajo' and as people passed, a few commented on Cameron's hiking prowess which pleased Cameron but he was a little upset that they never commented that he was a Park Ranger, until a woman (with an Albuquerque Ballon Fiesta t-shirt!) mentioned that he was a Junior ...
... and exploding section by section. Due to the nature of the weather here, they had to blast 6 large rock windows into the side of the tunnel to keep the air flowing through the tunnel and allowing the workers to breathe. Now these windows provide stunning vistas to the the drivers as they pass through the mile-long tunnel. Beautifully framed by the stone openings, it Is like a picture perfectly mounted on a vast, black museum wall.
Continuing the drive, we passed through ...
More then from the Berry Family.
PS - You may have noted that we are doing quite a lot of walking. There is an explanation. One of the older members of the party has bought a fitness band (pedometer). This has had an impact on the things that we do and see. The best example of this was dragging the kids on a 10km hike in order to get the step count up! There was even discussion on a 13 mile hike but this was quickly vetoed - insanity!
... about half an hours drive out the park. The reason we had to do this is because we were going to an astronomy talk and stargazing which would have finished after out motels check in had, so if we didn't check in before we’d be sleeping in the car. So we drove out the park and checked in and had some dinner. We also found some time to play on the putting green right outside our room door.
We then drove back to the park (taking in a beautiful sunset on route) ...
