          Another, better, world


          Like slipping off an onerous coat of steel armor, modern day furies fall away as you enter the world of The Garden Cottage. Diana and Gary Simkins have created a masterpiece of old world grace blended seamlessly with every desirable modern convenience. Though the rooms are spotlessly clean and the food delicious, that which draws us back year after year is our abiding affection for Diana and Gary. It is as easy to pass from business relationship to friendship as it is to lounge amongst the flowers in the sun drenched grounds. This is a happy home. Abandon all cares ye who enter here. Oh, and did I mention those wonderful beds...

          Neat place to stay


          We have spent five enjoyable days each year for the past five years at The Garden Cottage B&B while attending the Utah Shakespearean Festival.

          The location is very convenient; the furnishings are tastefully done (and comfortable) and the breakfasts are great. The biggest plus, however, is the friendliness and accomodating nature of the hosts!

          Warm, friendly, helpful, great food.


          We found our stay after a year of active duty with the U.S. Army overseas a calm and quiet respite. We would recommend it to anyone. The friendliness, the good food, and the cosy nature of "A Garden Cottage" were a needed rest for us.

          A Must Stay!


          My wife and I have gone to the Utah Shakespearean Festival for the last 6 years. Each year we have stayed at the Garden Cottage and we would never consider staying anywhere else. Diana and Gary make us feel so welcome, the rooms are wonderfully decorated, and the food is just the best. Try it, you won't be sorry!

          Hosts were so warm and welcoming


          My sister and I stayed at the Garden Cottage Bed and Breakfast in the summer of 2003. We loved it. The hosts were so warm and welcoming. The breakfasts were fantastic. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

          Home Away from Home


          Every August, for the past 6 years, we have spent 3 wondeful days in Cedar City, enjoying the Utah Shakespere Festival. Each visit brings us back to our "home away from home", The Garden Cottage. The graciousness of our hosts, Diana and Gary, along with their beautifull antique filled guest rooms, are something we look foward to all winter, especially, Diana's incredable breakfasts. We'd recommend The Garden Cottage to everyone who wants to get away from the boring experience of "chain" motels and hotels.

          Garden Cottage B&B - home away from home!


          The Garden Cottage Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful get away with delicious breakfasts, beautiful rooms that are decorated attractively and are always clean.. The hosts of this B&B are terrific! They are warm, friendly, eager to please and become like your family when you stay there often! We love it there and have gone back many times every time we go to the Shakespeare Festival. It's also a great location for the Festival -- across the street and down one block!

          I loved the whole thing!


          I love this Bed and Breakfast! The Hosts are wonderful, they make sure all your needs are met and love to get to know their guests. The Cottage is greatly done in authentic Victorian Style decorating. You feel something special about the place from the moment you enter the home. We look forward to every chance we get to get up to stay there.

          It is also located one block away from the Tony Award winning Shakespearean Festival

          Best Overall B&B I have ever stayed in


          The garden cottage bed & breakfast was absolutely breathtaking. From your beautiful gardens, waking up to your delicious breakfast, and feeling so welcome by you both. Everything was perfect. We had a great time and we ll be back. Thank you for making our vacation one to remember.

          Absolutely Wonderful!


          The Garden Cottage Bed & Breakfast is the most wonderful experience.

          The owners, Gary & Diana Simkins, are the most gracious people I have had the pleasure meeting. They make your stay so wonderful you can't wait to come back. The rooms are so charming. They are cheerful and welcoming. The Garden itself is not to be believed. You'll think you have taken a trip back in time to Grandma's backyard. I can't rave enough about The Garden Cottage BNB. And if you need to know anything about the Shakespearean Festival just ask Diana. Or if you'd rather go exploring the wonders of Utah, just ask. She'll direct you to whatever you would like to see.

          We headed up US-89 out of Kanab, UT and the scenery really is beautiful in this part of the country. We're far enough north that there is at least some vegetation on the mountains which are almost always a spectacular shade of red. We turned west on UT-9, the Zion-Mt Carmel Highway leads to the parks east entrance. The ride from the east entrance to the Visitors Center is awesome! The roadbed is a ...

I kept my distance and took photos that will serve more as a memory than exceptional wildlife photography. Moving on down the road, I especially wanted to get a few pictures of the famous Checkerboard Mesa. Named for its distinctive square-shaped patterned lines, it ...
