Our Journey

Hi! I’m Jenn & I’m Brent!

In August 2022 we purchased, to bring back to life, a 1950s Motor Lodge located on iconic Highway 89, in the historic town of Panguitch, UT. Where we live a simple life.

We chose Panguitch for many reasons; However, the main reason was we both have family roots here and a sense of pride in the community of Panguitch.


Second, was our location. We are conveniently located in the heart of Utah’s Mighty 5, Southern Utah’s picturesque playground.


We are only twenty-five minutes from Bryce Canyon and an hour from the east entrance of Zion, an hour and a half from North Rim Grand Canyon. Easy access to world-class trailheads at Red Canyon. Panguitch Lake, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Escalante Grand Staircase, Kodachrome Basin State Park, Brian Head, and many more magical areas.


Wings of a dragonfly create ripples of magic & positivity.
The smallest acts of kindness can create a ripple effect that can change lives.  
We are creating magic ripples of
 positivity ... one guest at a time! 
Experience the DRAGONFLY effect and become a ripple.


This motel is an amazing find and such a work of love in an area that you wouldn't expect...Honestly, I was just there to find a place to stay in lieu camping in bad weather.  I was pleasantly surprised!  I love the owner's thoughtfulness in regards to my room, and everything they did to make your accommodations clean, affordable, updated and welcoming.  I really hope this motel stays true to itself and doesn't sell out....

We saw your place on the way to Lake Powell and back and decided next time we'd intentionally not drive all the way just to be able to stay!  We love that your reviews support the good vibes we got just from passing by!!
