The pioneers who settled St. George in 1861 came from the south and brought plenty of their heritage with them. More than 150 years later, the popular getaway destination still delivers friendly southern hospitality – though you won’t find a red-rock small town as charming as this anywhere in the south.

As a kid, St. George was always a pit-stop destination on our family road trips from Phoenix to Salt Lake City. We’d stop to stretch our legs, grab a bite to eat, and maybe explore a few stores at the outlet mall before getting back on the road. I’d stare in awe at the striking red cliffs surrounding the city, but you can only appreciate that kind of scenery so much when you’re seeing it filtered through a car window.

It wasn’t until I was in my twenties that St. George finally became a getaway destination unto itself, and as soon as I ventured into the Martian landscape, I was hooked. Now, my family makes an annual pilgrimage to St. George to catch a play at Tuacahn, hike through slot canyons, and speed along mountain-biking trails. Even though we visit every year, it never gets old.

Whether you’re planning to spend a few days or a few weeks exploring St. George, there’s plenty to keep you entertained and coming back for more. Winter is the best time to visit as the scorching desert temps hit their sweet spot around 50 and 60 degrees F, though it’s hard to complain about the mild weather of shoulder seasons in spring and fall. Either way, it’s the perfect weather for outdoor adventures. Just bring plenty of water if you visit in the peak of summer.

The town has a variety of hotels, but the best way to experience this part of Utah is in one of these airbnbs in St. George. Whether you’re looking for a giant house to accommodate large families, a cottage for two that fits your budget, or a high-end villa on the golf course where you can live large for the weekend, the list below of the best airbnbs in St. George should make it easy to find the perfect place to rest your head.

Why you should stay: A quaint cottage near Zion National Park perfect for adventurous couples.

  • Sleeps: 2

  • Rates from: $98/night

The Pine Valley Settlers Cottage delivers the best of both worlds for adventurous travelers, combining the unique allure of a country cottage with a modern, beautifully furnished interior.

This cottage is halfway between St. George and Zion National Park, making it an ideal choice for travelers who plan to split their time between the city and trails. Its distance from the city lights also makes it a great spot to do some stargazing at night, so bring your Pendleton blanket and plan to spend at least one evening lying on the grass with a your significant other and a mug of hot chocolate (or something stronger.)

Why you should stay: An Airbnb Plus with three private bedrooms and plenty of space to spread out.

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $125/night

It’s rare to find a stand-alone house vacation rental at this price point, especially one with a Boho-chic interior that feels like a model home. Fortunately, the Zion Zen Getaway has been personally vetted by Airbnb and earned a Plus designation, so you won’t be disappointed when you arrive: those Pinterest-ready photos you’re looking at are the real deal.

Comfort is king in this beautiful home, where you can lounge on the plush sectional couch or catch some Z’s in one of three bedrooms with room-darkening shades. There’s a full kitchen, pre-stocked bathroom essentials to keep you clean and pampered, and a washer and dryer to freshen up your stale hiking gear.

Speaking of hiking, guests can hop on the Zion National Park shuttle at the nearby stop, so you don’t need to drive to-and-from the park every day (though you’ll need to purchase a ticket in advance.)

Why you should stay: Ideal for families who want outdoor space, with access to two community pools and easy access for parents to hit the links.

  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $158/night

Oasis on the Green is another excellent vacation rental for families, especially when you factor in the price point. You’d pay triple the price to house 10 guests at a hotel, and no local hotel is going to offer such luxurious accommodations as you’ll find here. It’s one of the best airbnbs in St. George for maximizing the bang for your buck.

Many vacation rentals claim to be kid-friendly, but this one takes family vacations to the next level with six beds split between three bedrooms. There’s plenty of room for the kids to run around the open-wall backyard while the parents sip a cold one on the patio, and guests have access to two community pools and hot tubs. The pools are heated over the winter, so you can make daily trips to the pool no matter when you visit.

As the name suggests, this property is right on the golf course, which means you’ll enjoy some great views from the back patio and convenient access for any golfers in the family. The town of Washington is about 45 minutes from Zion National Park and 15 minutes from downtown St. George, making it a good middle ground for folks who want to visit both destinations.

The Cozy Casita in the Red Rocks is located in Santa Clara, a tiny town with tree-lined streets about 10 minutes northwest of downtown St. George. That’s the wrong direction for folks headed to Zion National Park, but it’s right on the money for anyone with tickets to see a play at Tuacahn.

The guest house is fairly small, but there’s more than enough room for two with a plush king-size bed. After a full day of exploring the cliffs and slot canyons of Snow Canyon State Park, you’ll enjoy winding down on the couch across from a rustic brick fireplace with a crackling fire.
