We love to go to Parry’s and browse all the old movie star photos and memorabilia in the lobby.
Parry Lodge was founded by the 3 Parry Brothers in 1931. It has hosted some of the biggest names from the golden age of Hollywood. John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, James Garner, Gregory Peck, Maureen O’Hara, Tyrone Power, Omar Shariff, Sammy Davis Jr, Anne Baxter, Dean Martin, Yvonne DeCarlo, Ronald Reagan and Barbara Stanwyck are just a few of the hundreds of stars and character players that stayed at Parry’s while filming in the many scenic locales in and around Kanab, Utah. Parry Lodge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Just a couple of blocks from our Western Star vacation rental.
The unique mix of water and desert elements in this part of southwestern Utah create an interesting blend for photographers and artists to capture.
