affordable stay nearby Bryce
We were looking for accommodation for our Bryce Canyon visit and came across the village of Tropic and more specific The Bullberry Inn. This ‘bed and breakfast’ is located along Scenic Byway 12, just outside Tropic. It is a quite new and nice building surrounded by vast green lawns and during our visit with some horses around.
We had our room in a more or less separate building (on the photo the smaller ‘house’ on the right), which has two rooms. Rooms are rather spacious, although a little bit Spartan with massive home made pine log furniture; bed and bathroom were fine. Our room had a porch, which was nice to relax.
From the Inn you even have a view of the mountains of Bryce.
Wally and Nettie (the hosts) offer a ‘full country breakfast’. But on our request we got a ‘light breakfast’ with juice, coffee/tea, toasted bread, egg, some fruit and ‘of course’ BULLBERRY jelly.
This is an old family recipe made from local picked bullberries, which only seem to grow in this region. When leaving the Inn you get some of the jelly to take home.
After having seen the hustle and bustle in and around Ruby’s Inn nearby the entrance of Bryce Canyon NP (it is a real tourist trap), we were very happy that we decided staying in Tropic; a lot nicer and more affordable, paying just USD 95, (incl. taxes and breakfast). Quietness and space around the Inn.
Affordable (for Bryce).
