About Wayne Gardner
My wife & I have just gone into partnership with my wife sister and her husband. My wife & I are retired or at least we thought we were retires until we purchased this property. We live in the Salr Lake area and our partners live just down the road from Torrey in Loa, Utah. We have enjoyed the anticipation of making a nice place for people to stay.
Wayne Gardner purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Wayne Gardner chose Torrey
My wife's sister called one day and said there's a piece of property in Torrey we want you to look at. We hesitated but decided to take the beautiful drive up to Torrey. It's a very nice drive so we couldn't lose. When we saw the place it was a no brainer. We fell in love with the house and the area around Torrey. What makes this property so interesting is that it was never suposted to be apartments. The couple that built it put the home above the garage for the view. Later, for health reasons and not able to clime stairs, they built another nice home where the garage was . Then a daughter need a place to stay so another addition was made. And then the Mother in-law needed cared for so another addition was made. Each addition having there own modern conveniences; made it perfect for what we have turned it into. We are proud to offer our home to traveler from all over the world.
What makes this Apartment unique
The entrance Capital Reef National Monument is approximately 7 miles from Torrey. The Grand Staircase National Monument is a 45 minute drive away, it's 90 Miles to Bryce Canyon National Park. There are guided tour based out of Torrey right in front of our place, hike, fishing and hunting. Breath takingly Beautiful scenery made up of red rock cliffs, pine covered mountain, beautiful valley farms, wild game in abundance. If it isn't hunting season their still beautiful to look at. Our large nice back yard is perfect for the kid and anyone else to have picnics and just play family games.

Nice change from hotel rooms
This was a great place to spread out a bit after traveling and spending time in cramped hotel rooms, and to catch up on laundry. The place is sparely furnished but perfectly adequate for our needs (there were two of us). The washer and dryer worked well. The kitchen was spacious, but lacked basics such as dish pan and rack. However,the toaster and coffee maker were all the basics we needed, and these worked well, as did the dishwasher. Note that the house sits slightly back from the main road behind a outfitter and cafe. The back yard is fenced, and we were the beneficiaries of apples from the trees. The owner, Wayne, was very responsive and helpful. I would stay here again if visiting Capitol Reef NP.
