About Us

Two people reaching for the purest form that life has to offer, and we found ourselves in the same place at just the right time. Boulder, Utah held our hearts and chose to support our growing family. Mother nature spoke to us each day, keeping our feet rooted and our minds expansive. We birthed our first child, Magnolia Grace Apperson, and our first business Magnolias Street Food, in 2014.

We made the choice to stay put in a place that brought us that connected feeling and when out of balance all we had to do was look up and out. Magnolias Street Food brought our family abundance year after year, and in 2016 we birthed our second child, Emmylou Maxine Apperson.

From here, we started dreaming about the path forward, what could be possible, and in 2022 we bought the property of our dreams. A quaint pioneered homestead built in 1905, the charm and essence of this place was just what we had envisioned.

A place to revive
Filled with life seen and tasted
Imagine Yourself

The Loubird Inn, is an homage to our daughter Emmylou aka “Loubird”, my grandfather Lou who was an entrepreneur of his time, and my great-grandmother Stella Beatrice, another admired entrepreneur and incredibly powerful woman of her time.

“Imagine yourself, See, Touch and Taste.” This is the experience we want all our guests to feel exploring The Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, and relaxing at The Loubird Inn.
