Bryce Trails Bed and Breakfast

The Bryce Trails Bed and Breakfast was a wonderful surprise. Just when I thought that we'd been tricked into thinking that it was really close to the entrance to Bryce Canyon we found that we really were lucky to have found it. The hosts were very friendly and hospitable. Breakfast was amazing and the B&B was decorated with beautiful pictures of Bryce Canyon and the area. The drive to the main gate of the park was about 20 minutes but the Mossy Cave area which we hiked in was only about 10 minutes. There are only a few places to eat in Tropic. And I agree with another reviewer that the earplugs should be used if you're a light sleeper like I am.
One night we just relaxed and watched Netflix. The other night we went to the Country music Dinner Theater outside Bryce Canyon which was a lot of fun and great food. We would stay at this B&B if we're ever so lucky as to be in the area again.

Super comfortable room, well appointed with an amazing view across the valley. Food was great and a conversation with the owners even better. The best kept secret, however, is the location. Short 2 miles up the road is a Tropic Trail entrance to the Bryce Canyon park, that allows you to enter the trails from the bottom of the amphitheater and avoid the crowds at the top (and save you 30+ minute trip). Highly recommend as a starting point!

So many good things to say!
I’ll start with a short summary:
Check in was simple and contactless.
Room was very clean with some nice extras. Breakfast was included and served each morning to-go to maintain Covid-19 guidelines. It was delicious!
Hosts Ed and Liene were gracious and friendly. We would happily stay here again.
And now for the details:
We checked in after 10:30, but it was not an issue. Our key was waiting for us with directions to our room. We signed in and made notations of any food allergies/aversions. We stayed in Mossy Cave, up the stairs and at the end of the hallway.
The hallway with the majority of the rooms has a microwave, paper plates and utensils, a small ice maker, glasses and bottle opener for wine.
Our room had a coffee maker, teapot, small fridge, mugs, coffee, hot chocolate, and tea, and Utah mint truffles. (If you are from Utah you know these are amazing and if you’re not, you need to try them and enjoy the love!)
Hangers were in the closet, a futon bed, king sized bed, extra blankets, chair and table for reading, earplugs, 50” television with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney + etc. (We just needed to enter our own password for Disney + and then logged out before we left.)
The bathroom had big fluffy towels and washcloths (kind of a big deal in my world), disposable cups, individual toothpaste, hand sanitizer, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body wash, and shower caps. And I know this seems lame, but the toilet had a peach scented gell that made the room smell so fresh. Large adjustable shower head, decent water pressure and soft water (probably natural in this area of Utah.)
Okay, this was so impressive!
Every day included a to-go bag with juice, yogurt with berries and granola (I didn’t ask but I’m pretty sure this was homemade because it was amazing!), napkins, utensils, and an additional item which changed daily. Additionally, there was a hot, made to order dish.
California Eggs Benedict, Bacon, Sausage, peach muffin.
Crepes—one with a cream cheese mixture the other with Nutella, strawberries, peach jam.
Two sunny side eggs, bacon, beans, avocado and tomato salsa, apple turnover.
Ed is the photographer behind all of the beautiful artwork throughout the B&B! They are for sale.
We couldn’t regulate the temperature of our room and my hubby got cold every night (even with the two extra blankets on him.)
It was hard to see the sign for the lodge at night. It is there, and lit, but behind the parked cars. When we arrived it was completely hidden and we weren’t sure we were in the right place because it is very dark there.
(Not that the owners have any control over this...) the property just behind the lodge has chickens and a very loud rooster who will tell you it’s time to wake up and get ready for breakfast. 😅
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this establishment!!
Thank you Ed and Liene!

Extraordinary place, extraordinary people, with extraordinary food.
The rooms are very nice, not fancy, but have everything you could possibly need. The bed is very comfortable, shower is excellent, strong and plenty of hot water. We had a small sitting area in our room with a magnificent view and it was wonderfully quiet. The rooms have a refrigerator, coffee maker with excellent coffee provided, and they left the most amazing truffles I have ever eaten. We brought much of our food for lunches and snacks are we were traveling during CoVid and the off season.
Its really hard to describe how amazing the breakfast was, we have traveled the world over and have rarely had such delicious breakfast. Each day our hosts provided fresh baked pastries, in addition to an extortionary main course. One day it was eggs benedict, the next the best crepes I've ever eaten, another individual soufflés, and really enough food to last till dinner :-). The hosts (Edgar and Liene) made me an amazing peach, almond birthday cake.

Lovely B and B
Ed and Liene are consummate hosts and fabulous cooks! I requested some sort of a treat for my sister’s birthday and Liene made a gorgeous peach and almond cake for her. She was thrilled! Ed and Liene really go above and beyond to make your visit special.
