Welcome to the Slot Canyons Inn and North Creek Grill in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument region of Utah. We are a new bed and breakfast built in 2006. Our unique on-site restaurant offers unique dining in a pristine setting. Slot Canyons Inn is located between Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef National Parks on Scenic Byway 12 in Escalante, Utah. This area is considered one of the most scenic sections of the United States with majestic canyons, mountains and plateaus. The Slot Canyons Inn – Bed and Breakfast offers the finest lodging in one of the most protected environments of the United States. The skies are so clear you can often see 80 to 100 miles in daylight and the stars so bright that the Milky Way truly fits its name. The Escalante River and North Creek converge on our secluded 160 acre property. These two waterways include a two-tiered waterfall along with a private canyon and placid cool, clear waters from the highest plateau in North America.
Of course, we are located next to some of the most dramatic slot canyons in the world within the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Situated just off All American Scenic Byway 12 (one of America’s top-rated scenic drives) we are ideally located between Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon National Parks. While scenery is an excellent reason to stay with us, you’ll find plentiful amounts of wildlife such as deer, elk, hawks, eagles and wild turkeys along with a multitude of other birds and animals. In addition to this we have been identified as the oldest known human habitation site on the Northern Colorado Plateau (dating back 10,000 years).

This area was one of the last explored in the country and was first explored by Europeans when Spanish Padre Silvestre Velez de Escalante led an expedition here in 1776. The Grand Staircase is actually a series of geologic formations between the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Glen Canyon and the Aquarius Plateau. The town of Escalante Utah at the western end of the national monument, is also named for this early explorer. Escalante annually celebrates a 20th century artist and wanderer in the region by the name of Everett Ruess. We enjoy warm summers and mild winters so any time of the year is perfect for your visit to the Slot Canyons Inn.
