Escalante was settled by Mormon pioneers in the mid eighteen hundreds and, at the time, it was a very remote and not easily accessible location. Today Escalante is the jumping off point for many people who want to explore the Boulder Mountains or the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Our guests have learned that there is plenty to see and do in this area for at least six or more days, and most of our guests stay at least three nights in an effort to catch their first glimpses of this scenic region.
The Grand Staircase is a magical place and is the largest national monument in America. The Grand Staircase includes majestic plateaus such as the Kaiparowitz plateau, and also includes many canyons and narrow passage-ways commonly referred to as slot canyons. The slot canyons in the Grand Staircase are remarkable places to explore. Slot canyons are one of the main attractions for our guests.
The Slot Canyons Inn Bed & Breakfast is a wonderful place to come home to after a day of exploration. Our exquisite rooms, great dining and our unique setting are all reasons given by our guests as the reason they enjoyed their stay in the Escalante Utah region.
