Meet Our Staff


This is Susie, our Breakfast Supervisor. She is in charge of our “Breakfast House” and making sure our guests have a great dining experience at the Abbey. She and the rest of the breakfast staff do an amazing job.

Here are some comments that our guests gave about the breakfast:
“Can’t say enough about the wonderful breakfast! …The breakfast staff was really nice…”
“The entire staff, from the people at the desk to those handling the complimentary breakfast, were top notch. ”

If you get a chance, you can ask Susie and the other girls about some local insights to Cedar City and Southern Utah. Here are some of Susie’s favorite Cedar City secrets.

Favorite Local Restaurant:
The Garden House, especially their steak and vegetable dish. For dessert, be sure to get a slice of cheesecake.

Favorite Cedar City Event/Activity:
The July Jamboree. The whole city comes together downtown. You have to see all of the amazing classic cars.

Local Insight:
There are so many things to do in Southern Utah. Be sure to enjoy the beautiful drive to Cedar Breaks. Try skiing at Brian Head. And make sure you schedule enough time to do multiple hikes at Zion.

Thank you, Susie for all you do for us at the Abbey Inn!

Tour of Utah Race

Tour of Utah

The Larry H. Mill Tour of Utah Race is coming to Cedar City on Tuesday August 6th. Many months have been spent in preparation for the highly anticipated event, and we are excited to welcome the athletes and staff. Teams from each continent will be competing in this rigorous race, and Southern Utah offers steep climbs with a gorgeous backdrop for these world-class athletes. The race will be broadcast live in 50 countries.

Stage 1 begins in Brian Head at 9,600 feet, which is the highest starting point of any other race in North America, a this season. Riders will encounter a sharp climb to Cedar Breaks National Monumewhere they will look over the natural amphitheatre comprised of red sedimentary rock sculptures called hoodoos. Next, riders will race to the highest point of the day, Markagunt Plateau, at 10,300 feet. For a reprieve, riders will enjoy a descent to placid Panguitch Lake and down through Cedar Canyon. The excitement will peak as the athlete are greeted in Cedar City and race to the finish line located in the Historic Downtown of Cedar.

The Tour of Utah was nominated for the 2013 Sport Travel Award, and we look forward to hosting such a prestigious event. We hope that many will see the challenges and beauty that can be enjoyed in Southern Utah and that future riders of all skill levels will come test their stamina in our mountains.

Here is a glimpse of the course:
