More about A Garden Cottage Bed and Breakfast

Shakespearean storybook retreat

by A TripAdvisor Member

If you want charm and convenience, stay at The Garden Cottage. I have stayed at this inn twice while attending the Utah Shakespeare Festival (a must-see!) for many reasons:
1.The rooms are beautiful, spotless with all of the amenities and great attention to detail. This is one of the quietest inns I have stayed in, perhaps owing to no televisions in the rooms and the fact that they discourage parents with young children from staying there. Also the kitchen smells don’t permeate the house and rooms (a pet peeve of mine.)
2.The house is cozy — not the ubiquitous Victorian painted lady B&B — but more of a small storybook cottage living up to its name. It is resplendent in summer with climbing roses, hanging vines, towering shade trees, and head-high hollyhocks, frequented by butterflies, bumblebees and hummingbirds. (Hint: Stay in the Morning Glory room, where they fly right up to your window to take advantage of the flowers in the window box and enjoy nature’s “TV” without leaving that big, comfy iron bed!)
3.The breakfast is the best I have ever had at any of the 100-plus B&Bs I have stayed at across the years and country. When my sister and I stayed there in July, we sat down to our first course of homemade “Orange Julius” refreshers, fresh fruit/granola parfaits, and hot coffee. The second course was a piping-hot crust-less quiche pungent with herbs and cheese, and, the crown of the table, a giant, hot-from-the-oven pecan/cinnamon monkey bread, which received Ooohs and Aaahs from everyone. Our hosts, the Simpkins, paid great attention to detail with diminutive fresh pansies gracing everyone’s plating of quiche; embroidered linen coasters around the base of the stemware; all the fixings (including tiny marshmallows!) for hot chocolate; a selection of premium teas, and even decorated sugar cubes. (Diana takes a box of plain cubes to the bakery to have each tiny block iced with minute rosebuds.)
4.The Garden Cottage is cattycornered and just across the street from the Utah Shakespeare Festival theaters and conveniently just a few blocks from downtown dining and shopping, so you don’t need to get in your car, if you don’t want. I-15 freeway access is more or less only a mile away.
If you have never been to the Utah Shakespeare Festival, winner of the 2000 Tony Award for Best Regional Theatre, then do yourself a favor and plan a trip to Cedar City, Utah, about 3 hours from either Las Vegas, Nevada, or Salt Lake City. But before you go, be sure to make your reservation at The Garden Cottage first.

Wonderful bed and breakfast, very nice accommodations with great attention to detail in decor, food and hospitality to guests. Owner, operators are friendly and helpful. We have already booked next year, staying additional days, and bringing additional friends.

The Perfect Weekend

Our rooms were ready early as requested. Diana's recommendations for dinner were just right. And our stay, well all we can say is "it doesn't get any better"! Diana and Gary made our weekend perfect!

Better than Home.

This was our first time at a B and B. It will not be the last. The service and attention to details was fabulous. Breakfast was more than we were expecting and tasted better. The rooms were decorated with style and fun, with comfort added. Thanks for the great time!!!

Wonderful Oasis

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Garden Cottage is a beautiful bed and breakfast retreat and a wonderful choice if you are attending the Utah Shakespearean Festival. The Victorian style cottage (which really looks like a cottage) is only a two minute walk to the main theater. The cottage has beautiful gardens in the front and back, the rooms are immaculate, and the hosts, Diana and her husband, are accommodating and gracious. They also serve a wonderful breakfast which is included in the price of your room. If you want extra privacy, request the yellow bedroom in the back, which has a private entrance off of the garden.

The best kept secret in Cedar City

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stay with Dianna at the Garden Cottage twice a year in conjunction with the Utah Shakespear Festival. We have never been disappointed with the quality of the room, breakfast and other guests. The location is great and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cedar City.
