    This clean and charming place was a great home base for us while we were in Escalante. The porch, yard, and adjacent field provided a relaxing backdrop, and my teenagers enjoyed saying hi to the resident steers. Elaine was very responsive to questions and made sure we had everything we needed.

    Overall a great place to stay. Loved the location, front porch, and the two grazing cows. Two things to keep in mind if you’re considering booking - you can’t use washer or dryer and there’s no living room... other than those two things the place was comfortable and clean.

    We really enjoyed staying at the Prairie Star. Access to some nice unpaved roads were a real plus for this location. The house looks like it was recently remodeled, so it was a great place to stay!
