About The Loubird Inn

Our Story

After 8 years of growing our restaurant Magnolias Street Food, in Boulder, Utah we knew it was time to spread our wings and reach for the stars and we found just the place to do so. A Pioneered Homestead in Escalante, Utah built in 1905. Our vision, the warm desert sunshine, a place where your cozy art inspired rooms await you after a long day of fresh desert energy. A glass of wine on your porch, your latest book or one of ours and fresh fruits, veggies and herbs to pick and enjoy. Surrounded by one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world and walking distance to restaurants, galleries, and other amenities. Never leave the property or do. Engulf yourself in the life surrounding you. See, touch, taste and take home.

Local Artists from around the area at your finger tips, literally in your rooms. A rotating gallery of artwork, pottery, weavings and more that will leave you feeling inspired to create, take home, or just enjoy during your stay with us. We look forward to sharing this special place with all of you.
