Location + Surroundings
This accommodation is located at a bed and breakfast in the eastern outskirts of Torrey, Utah, where it situated amid the desert hills that lie between the eastern edge of Capitol Reef National Park and the western ridges of the Henry Mountains. From the west side of the bed and breakfast's deck, guests can see the Navajo sandstone dome of Golden Throne—one of the highest peaks of Capitol Reef National Park, the summit of which reaches an altitude of 7,042 feet. Encompassing 243,921 acres of spectacular desert landscapes, the park is home to a variety of incredible geological formations and natural attractions, including canyons, buttes, ridges, monoliths, domes, arches, cliffs, the Waterpocket Fold, and Capitol Reef itself. The "fold" is a rocky spine that extends all the way from Lake Powell to Thousand Lake Mountain, while the "reef" is an especially scenic portion of the fold that runs along the Fremont River.
In a landscape dominated by desert, guests might not expect to see much wildlife, but the park's pinyon-juniper woodlands, perennial streams, dry washes (also known as arroyos), and rock cliffs are home to an abundance of creatures big and small, with 239 species of birds, 71 species of mammals, 15 species of reptiles, five species of amphibians, and 13 species of native fish having had recorded sightings within its boundaries. Residents of the park include mule deer, gray foxes, mountain lions, desert bighorn sheep, desert spiny lizards, midget faded rattlesnakes, peregrine falcons, golden eagles, and Mexican spotted owls.
To the southwest, the park borders Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. The former safeguards more than a million acres of some of the most remote lands in the entire United States, while the latter contains 1.25 million acres of deserts and canyons surrounding Lake Powell, providing an abundance of land and water-based recreation options.
The bed and breakfast is about four hours from Salt Lake City, where the nearest international airport is located. Read More
