Charming & historic home in downtown Cedar City - Shakespeare Festival lodging!

This picturesque Colonial Cedar City vacation rental in the upper level a historic house is a great spot for six people and the family dog to thoroughly enjoy all Southern Utah has to offer, especially the annual Shakespeare Festival!

Set right off 100 East in downtown Cedar City, you truly are immersed in all the action this Utah mountain town has in store. From downhill skiing in the winter to hiking and biking in the summer, there is something for everyone close by. And when you want to take a break from cooking your own meals, delicious eateries are within walking distance!

This upper-level rental has a charming historic feel with some nice modern accents around so you'll feel right at home. Plenty of windows bring in ample natural light to enhance the beauty of the wood floors. This home even comes with cable and WiFi so you won't miss any of your favorite shows and can easily upload pictures of your thrilling day around town. There is no elevator to access this upper-level.

A comfortable family room is set close to the full kitchen. Lounge on the overstuffed sofa to watch movies on the flatscreen TV, read a good book, or simply spend quality time with fellow travelers.

When tummies are rumbling, step into the kitchen to take advantage of the major and small (microwave, toaster, and coffeemaker) appliances, as well as a grill outside. A dining table seats six, so gather the group for a sit-down meal followed by a night full laughter and friendly competition across board games.

As eyelids fall heavy, head into either of the two bedrooms for a good night's rest. The master bedroom features a queen bed across from a flatscreen TV and the guest room has two twin beds. Two more can sleep on the full-size pull-out sofa in the family room, so all six guests have a place to sleep comfortably. The one bathroom has a nice tiled shower, perfect for aching muscles after a day on the nearby Brian Head slopes. And you can pack light, as there's a private washer and dryer in this home.

This convenient location makes grabbing groceries or forgotten items from the store across the street, walking to eateries and shopping, and truly enjoying things like the Utah Shakespeare Festival a reality. Visit the Frontier Homestead State Park Museum for a little of everything, or drive just over two miles north to gain access to gorgeous Dixie National Forest to hike and snap pictures of the stunning red cliffs. Reserve a tee time at Cedar Ridge Golf Course, see a movie at the Historic Cedar Theatre, or take the kids to the Cedar City Aquatic Center for some indoor water fun. And in the winter, great skiing and snowboarding can be found just 32 miles away.

Find your family's new favorite destination spot when you book this Southern Utah vacation home.

Nice and clean . Great location to visit a few different national parks in the the area.

Really liked this place. Plenty of dishes, etc. Lots of nice towels. The decor really makes it feel like home.

I loved that we were across the street from the grocery store and other shopping.

The only advice I'd give is:
1. Change the batteries routinely in the smoke alarms. It's was pretty freaky when it started chirping in the middle of the night.
2. Same with the remotes or keep a spare set in the house.
3. Keep the fire pit area groomed. There was painted pickets with nails sticking out, in the pit along with some other trash. Grass was a foot tall in places.

My twin 8 year old girls and I spent a couple of nights at the Old Mayor's House during Memorial Day Weekend and loved it. Very comfortable and tons of character. Beds were great. Lots of privacy and quiet. Across the street from the backside of a supermarket. Outstanding value. Fantastic place for a family of four people. Wifi worked without a hitch along with the grill. Would stay here again when back in Southwest Utah. Loved every minute I was there! A++!!!!

Couldn’t have had a better stay anywhere.
Spencer L. Apr 2020
Loved the decor and location.
Julie and Joy Amos B. Nov 2019
Really enjoyed our one week stay. It had everything we needed. Great supply of nice soft towels, very clean, super convenient location.
Susan B. Oct 2019
Beautiful decorated comfortable well stocked with all you need in the kitchen
Liz M. Oct 2019
the old mayor’s house was perfect! Quiet, comfortable, welcoming, and had everything we could possibly want. And it was centrally located to all of our destinations!
Megan M. Sep 2019
It was just perfect and comfortable and we made dinner for friends and saved a bunch of money eating in. So close to the USF and everything. Would definitely stay here again!
Juergen Z. Aug 2019
Beautiful historic interior. We missed nothing.
Joe H. Aug 2019
The apartment was clean and well kept it was the perfect amount of space for four on a work trip. It was great to have a kitchen and refrigerator at our disposal. The house is located close to everything: grocery store, restaurants, theaters, and Starbucks. It was very easy to find and well lit outside. We really enjoyed our stay.
Richard L. Aug 2019
Always amazed at how these historic old homes seem to endure with grace and charm. This place has all that one needs for a comfortable stay: nice beds, privacy, clean bathroom, kitchenette, reading room. Had a nice stay.
Priscilla F. Jul 2019
We loved how clean and well-equipped this rental was. But the listing made it appear as if it was a single-family one-story home. When actually this rental is on the second floor at the top of a very LONG staircase. We are two older women friends and we struggled to get our luggage up the long stairs. Also, the shower had no grab bars.

On the other hand this would have been perfect for a youngish couple with two kids. It had a well-equipped kitchen, nice TV and pleasant dining room. And a washer dryer.

It was close to the Shakepeare Festival which we were attending. Parking in front was easy. Restaurants are nearby.

It would be a 5 star except for the misleading description.

Our stay at the Old Mayor's House was amazing! It was within walking distance to everything needed. We had a wonderful stay and appreciated feeling at "Home".
Kade P. May 2019
Comfy. Well kept. It suited our families needs perfectly. Thanks.

Convenience and practicality
Hailey P. Oct 2018
This was a very charming and comfortable place I would highly recommend it!
Sonja B. Aug 2018
This is a wonderful home. It has lots of stairs but if that is okay it's great.
Karen B. Aug 2018
Clean, quiet, roomy, wonderful amenities. Didn't have to worry about dishes, linen, towels. Climate control great! Privacy (even from each other!) Very, very nice and convenient to shopping and theater.
Jeroen W. Jul 2018
Very nice place to stay if you want to visit national parks like Zion and Bryce Canyon. Clean and comfortable, it has everything you need and more (like a record player and old country records by Hank Williams and Andy Williams!).
Highly recommended!
Susan S. Jul 2018
Walking distance to Utah Shakespeare festival and downtown shops. It was just my mom & me, and she is 75. Stairs were a little tough, but the property was perfect for us!
Holly F. Jul 2018
We love our stay at this property. We stayed in the upstairs apartment. The yard was big and we were able to host a small bbq. Walking distance to park, baseball fields and shopping. Quiet and comfy! Loved it
Roxane B. Jul 2018
I think it's important to know the house is upstairs. We did not have any difficulty with that but it could be a problem for some.
Maureen D. Jun 2018
A very cozy place to stay within walking distance to stores and restaurants. Easy travel to Zion, Bryce and Cedar Breaks.
Brett B. Oct 2017
We love the location right behind Lin's grocery. You can walk to downtown Main Street and enjoy the stay there. Property was set back off the main street so it was quite quiet. I love the decor inside and the quaint feeling out of place. It had a lot of character.
Maureen M. Oct 2017
My sisters and I rented this place for the weekend. It was much more modern inside than we expected and was in excellent condition. It was very clean and welcoming. We attended a play, but spent most of the rest of the weekend hanging out in this place and just enjoying each other's company. We will be back!
Tim H. Sep 2017
We originally planned for 2 nights, but were fortunate to extend it by 2 days. Wonderful place, and great location. The surrounding neighborhood seems a little run down, but we didn't have any issues while we were there. We used Cedar City as a central point for visiting Bryce, Zion, and even Capital Reef. We would stay there again in a heart beat.
Rebecca R. Aug 2017
This house was simply charming and well maintained! I wished parking was better (it was terrible) and clear communication that this home is also occupied by several full time renters. The sharing made it less than private. With that being said, I can't say enough about how charming and well maintained our portion of the home was!
Michael V. Jul 2017
We had many choices over the July 4th extended weekend to call our home base, for day trips. We chose Cedar City, and we are glad we did. The old mayors house was a perfect fit. Centerally located, for our day trips, and very comfortable. Market was within walking distance, and our favorite meal out wd Sonny Boys BBQ.
We traveled to Zion, Kolob, Bryce, & Cedar Breaks in our 5 days in Utah.
Julie S. Jun 2017
This rental is just the second floor, but can fit 4-6 people in the space. The house is old, but looks recently renovated and very well decorated. The wifi and AC both worked great. It was easy to find and we had shaded parking on the street out front. Bring a baby gate for the top of the stairs if you have a mobile baby.
Paisley T. May 2017
The pictures cannot even show how adorable this house is. The beds were comfy, everything was in great shape, and the kitchen had everything you would need. The one thing that surprised us is we thought it was the whole house but it's actually the top floor which is fine because it has a separate door and is completely private we were just worried when we arrived because we saw people downstairs and were worried we booked the wrong night. Once we figured it out everything was great!

In a world of traveling and finding the right place to stay and choosing from a million options, my family and I happened to stumble across this unique property.

Our 1st stay here was in Aug 2016 for a week and let me say, we did not want to leave. To be able to unwind and sit on the front porch drinking our coffee and watching the kids in the neighborhood ride their bikes around and others out on a stroll, it brought back a lot of nastalgia, happiness and the sheer importance of of life.

This charming cottage offers many sleeping options that didn't make us (3 adults, 2 kids) feel like we were walking all over each other (every inch of the place was designed with a flowing and comfortable walkthru of living space).

Parks and trails walking distance as well as groceries, restaurants, shops and great ice cream parlors.

In the evening's you can find yourself enjoying a relaxing bonfire roasting smores, listening to music and indulging in your favorite beverage while looking up and seeing a million stars in the sky.

We have stayed here a couple of times now and will continue to come back as much as we can. The neighbors are absolute genuine people and make you feel like part of the family. This is my 2nd home.
Kathy H. Jan 2017
The house is within walking distance of the library, a large playground, grocery store, and most restaurants. This made it so much easier with kids.
If you're traveling with young kids, bring something to black out the windows in the bedroom- white blinds made nap-time rough.
Symbria P. Nov 2016
Has a great feel, so clean, something a little different, they have thought of everything very well stocked, comfy beds, beautiful bedding and pillows, location is walking distances from everything and just a short drive away for everything else this place is practically perfect in every way!
Nicolle L. Sep 2016
Lovely place! Will stay again in a heartbeat next time we visit Cedar City!
Tessa Z. Aug 2016
This is a very clean, very lovely old home and very cozy for the family. It's about a twenty minute walk to the Festival through the main section of old town Cedar City. This home has the best stocked kitchen I have EVER seen in any rental - our family is big, so we nearly always rent a house as opposed to a hotel so I've seen a few rental kitchens. Lots of fun touches like chalkboard paint on some of the kitchen cabinets so you can write up pending meals and activities. So many stuffed animals for the kids to tote around, many books and windows that open (with screens) to let in those great desert breezes.

Just a few things - for families, like I said, be sure you talk about the large TVs (one of the mounted to a wall in a very small parlor) before you come so that no one damages them. Also, be aware that the rental area is upstairs and above two other units (at least, that's what it looked like). I probably wouldn't have rented it had I realized that just because I don't like to disturb others with the pitter patter of little feet - or indoor games, impromptu dancing and other fun stuff the children concoct that isn't exactly sedate.
Also, and this will only apply to those who might rent in the next few months, most likely (I'm writing this August 2016), but there was A LOT of construction noise during our stay. Something is being built directly across the street and the heavy equipment made a great deal of noise at all hours of the day and night. Early in the morning (like 6am) and late into the night, we had the loud beeping of equipment backing up and the scraping of the machinery doing it's work. This is NOT something the landlord can do anything about. However, it's something to consider if you have babies, toddlers or just anyone who would like to sleep in on their vacation days.

I plan to stay here the same week in July every year for the rest of my life. I can walk to the amazing and spectacular Shakespearean Festival! The grocery store is less than a 60 second walk away. A fantastic children's park and library are less than a 5 minute walk away. A beautifully decorated, fully equipped home away from home. I think it can comfortably accommodate up to 4 people. One bathroom. The only surprise was no dishwasher but with a little thought, the few minutes of hand washing was a nice change of pace.
Nina D. Jul 2016
The house does have a steep stairway upon entering so keep that in mind when packing. Once you pass the stairway you enter a great little house! The owner has truly thought of any and all possible needs. The decor is lovely yet comfortable and inviting. There are good books to cuddle up with for all ages and toys to occupy little ones. There are wine glasses to sippy cups and this combined with the excellent location makes it the perfect choice. It's in walking distance to parks, restaurants, Shakespeare and even a farmers market. If you're in need of a place to stay and want a comfy bed this is the house for you! I look forward to visiting again in the future!
