Parry Lodge, Kanab UT

Owned and operated by Forever Resorts and located in Kanab, UT, Parry Lodge—on the National Register of Historic Places—defines Kanab’s “Little Hollywood” reputation. Hundreds of western movies and television shows were filmed in the area; Hollywood’s most famous movie stars called Parry Lodge home. Kanab, Utah is at the epicenter of Utah and Arizona’s famous canyon lands including possible day-trips to Grand Canyon (1 hr./39 min.), Zion (34 min.), and Bryce Canyon National Parks (1 hr./28 min.) or Lake Powell /Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (1 hr.).  Parry Lodge is just 3 hours and 21 minutes from Las Vegas, NV on US I15.

In 1931 the local Parry brothers renovated a colonial-style home in Kanab to serve as a tourist lodge and restaurant—thus, Parry Lodge. They were instrumental in attracting filmmakers, movie stars and movie crews to this scenic area for more than 50 years of Western movie making. Whit Parry would help coordinate shoot locations, transportation, food, lodging, and livestock for Hollywood clients. Plus the brothers arranged for entertainment, tours, dances, parties, and even boxing matches to entertain the talent and the studio crews during production down times.

On Hwy 89, the Lodge now offers 90 spacious rooms and cottages (named after movie stars who stayed in them). There is a restaurant on site, a courtyard with a heated pool, free Wi-Fi and ample free parking. Classic movies are shown in the Lodge’s historic Old Barn Movie Theatre, seasonally. Groups are welcome. Also enjoy Denny’s Wigwam, the Iron Horse Restaurant and Saloon, and Forever Adventure Tours—all within walking distance of Parry Lodge.
