Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Hatch - Sevier River Retreat

3 bedrooms, 2 and a half bathrooms with views from most windows - Sleeps 6

The Sevier River Retreat is a secluded and luxurious ranch house that sits on 9 acres surrounded by the Sevier River on 3 sides, and close to Bryce Canyon and Zion. The house looks directly at the back of Bryce Canyon and the Sevier River. Most windows in the house have a view, and there are no neighbors.

The property was entirely renovated, decorated and furnished in 2015 with an neo-industrial/farm style mixing wood and metal. The house features accents of barnwood (most of it from the property itself) and many of the furniture pieces and lighting fixtures were custom made from local artisans using reclaimed barnwood. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms (the master bathroom has a jacuzzi tub and separate tiled walk-in shower, while the upstairs bathroom has a large tub / shower combination with a view of the river) and a half bath, with a size of approximately 1800 sf.

The house offer all the amenities of home including high speed wifi (30 Mbps) throughout the house, four LCD flat screen TVs that offer Netflix and Amazon Video streaming service (no broadcast, cable or satellite channels), as well as Pandora for music and ambiance. We provide many extras for our guests, such as a printer to print out itineraries and boarding passes, cellphone chargers, reverse osmosis drinking water, locally made artisan soaps, shampoo, coffee from the region and much more. The gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances and is well equipped for cooking lavish meals and baking treats in the convection oven. A German style wood barbeque is available outside for riverside grilling. Washer and dryer is also provided. Note that the Retreat does not have air conditioning, as summers do not get very hot at the higher elevation in Hatch, but all windows have screens so they can be opened to take advantage of the breeze.

The downstairs master bedroom has a split king bed, ie two separate twin natural latex mattresses side by side. The second bedroom has a normal california king bed with spring mattress, and the third bedroom has two separate twin beds also with spring mattresses.

You will enjoy a good night rest in eery silence. If you're from the big city, it will take some getting used to!

During the winter, cuddle up around the automatic pellet stove in the living room, which provides radiant warmth with a cozy fire (sufficient supply of pellets is provided for your entire stay), and watch the snowy landscapes outside.

During the summer, open up the double doors and blur the lines between inside and outside, as you watch the pink cliffs light up during majestic sunsets, and animals and birds using the river while you have dinners on the wraparound decks. Or watch horses or cows grazing during afternoon tea on the outdoor rocking chairs.

If you need to sleep additional people, consider renting the Ranch Hands Bunkhouse and/or the Wranglers quarters (available via separate listings) at the Sevier River Ranch and Cattle Company, a 280 acre cattle ranch just up the street from the retreat. Each sleeps 2 additional people.

Once you are well rested, you will be ready to take advantage of all the sights to see. The following Parks / Monuments can each be seen within a half or full day trip from the retreat:

- Bryce Canyon National Park

- Red Canyon

- Zion National Park

- Cedar Breaks National Monument (Close in the winter)

- Duck Creek

- Grand Staircase Escalante

- Grand Canyon (North Rim)

- Lake Powell National Recreation Area, and its majestic sandstone cliffs

- Pink Coral Sand Dunes State Park

- Kodachrome Basin State Park

- Buckskin Gulch Slot Canyon (longest one in the US)

- The Wave (requires permit from BLM)

- Best Friends animal sanctuary (free tours)

- Brian Head Ski Resort (during the winter season)

- Horseback riding (available in Bryce Canyon)

- ATV rentals (summer) and snowmobile rentals (winter)

Of course, you could also stay home and fish (with a Utah fishing license, that can be purchased online) and swim on the property itself, hike, bike or ATV on many trails nearby, some right outside the property.

Upon arrival, be sure to read the welcome guide which contains information on these attractions and many more.

The property is equipped with state-of-the-art electronic locks so that guests can check themselves in at any time, and late check-in is not a problem. Guests have access to the entire house, and can roam freely on the 9 acres as well as fish (with a Utah fishing license, that can be purchased online) and swim in the Sevier River.

We live 4 hours away in Las Vegas, and will leave you in complete privacy. However we are always available to answer any questions or give you tips for daytrips or restaurants. We speak fluent French, German, Spanish and English.

Do not hesitate to reach out with any question, prior or during your trip.

Whether you are looking to explore the natural wonders of the area (the Retreat is located between 2 of the most visited National Parks in the country), whether you're an animal lover (the neighbors on both sides have horses, the rancher's cows graze on the fields during summer, deer and birds like to bathe in the river, and we have the biggest animal shelter in the US is 45 minutes away) or whether you just want to have a romantic and cozy getaway in total privacy, the Retreat has it all.

Location

The Sevier River Retreat is located in Hatch, a small rural town of 200 people. Locals are very friendly and helpful, and you shouldn't hesitate to ask anyone for tips and recommendations.

The Retreat is very private on the edge of town. It sits on 9 acres entirely surrounded by the Sevier River, The neighbors in the back are 300 meters away (with horse pastures in between), while your only neighbors in the front are cows and horses, as you look at the pink cliffs of Bryce Canyon.

Note that there are no grocery stores in Hatch and you should plan to bring at least some food with you. The nearest grocery store is in Panguitch (15 mins) and you will find a Walmart Supercenter in Cedar City (1 hour).

There is no public transportation. You will need a car. 4x4 or high clearance is recommended in order to enjoy the surrounding trails, but a regular low-clearance sedan is sufficient to access the Retreat itself.

About Owner

I was born in Germany, grew up in France and moved to Las Vegas in 2002. I enjoy the outdoors and all our great National Parks in the area. Do not hesitate to reach out before or during your stay, for any questions on the area. Let's pick the adventures nearby that fit your unique vacationing style.

Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why Owner chose Utah

We were looking for a property that had a river running through it, which is rather unusual in our desert. We looked at online real estate portals and followed all rivers, looking for properties listed for sale nearby. We stumbled on this one and immediately decided to buy it, due to the very unique situation where the property is bordered by the river on 3 sides.

The house itself needed a lot of remodeling and updating, and it took a year and a half to make it truly luxurious, modern and unique. We tried using local craftsmen and local materials whenever possible. Many of the barn wood features in the house use wood recycled from an old coral right on the property.

What makes this house unique

There is no other property where you are bordered by a river on 3 sides, have no neighbors, and are looking at the pink cliffs of Bryce Canyon! The property is ideal for a cozy vacation during the winter as well as the summer.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the ranch. The house is beautiful on the inside and the views of the stream and the mountains from the living room and deck are stunning. The house was very clean and it had everything we needed for a comfortable stay - so nice to have a washer & dryer. My husband enjoyed fishing in the stream and caught quite a few trout. The house is conveniently located between Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park and it is also close to Dixie National Park where you can see ancient lava fields. The town of Hatch has a few good restaurants and a post office and the town of Panguitch (about 15 minutes away) has a grocery store, restaurants, and gas stations. I also should mention that the owner provided great customer service! We would stay at the ranch again and would recommend it to family & friends!

Peaceful with a magnificent view

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! House is perfectly maintained and an excellent location to explore beautiful Bryce Canyon. If you enjoy fishing, get the license online and you can catch fish right behind the house. We hope to come back one day.

The beauty of the property and this house are unmatched in our opinion. I miss the morning quiet

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful property is optimally located for all Bryce Canyon visitors and provides a much prettier setting than the rather ugly hotels/motels near the canyon. It is exactly one hours drive to Zion. The amenities are superb, the decor is perfect natural wood and very calming; beautiful bathrooms and modern kitchen. The outdoor views are stunning and picturesque. The fire pit provided much delight for my kids in their early 20's . Special quodos to the Owners for the instructions/ property description/helpful hints-- all were spot on and nothing about the property was a mystery; I appreciate that. Mornings at this house are a sheer delight-quiet and peaceful, bird watching, horses, cows. I would go again.

Beautiful views, lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Sevier Retreat in Hatch, Utah! My husband & his friend loved being able to walk right outside to go fish in the river! The house was very clean, nicely furnished, & comfortable. It was very convenient to go to either Zion or Bryce from our location. It was also easy to find. The house itself is adorable, they just need to put in poles to hang clothes in closets, otherwise great. It had a nice big kitchen too. Be sure to bring some groceries if you're going to cook because they aren't any grocery stores nearby. We had a great time & would highly recommend it. The owner provided all the necessary information that we needed too. The Galaxy restaurant down the street was very good & friendly. We'd also recommend when in Bryce take the 3 hour free tour. It's really good! Also, right across the street from Ruby's Inn (the entrance to Bryce) is a Cowboy Dinner Theater. Good food & fun entertainment. You can buy your tickets at Ruby's. Here's what I wouldn't recommend, driving on hwy 12 to Escalante. Long drive & really not much to see or do unless you like rappelling.

Surprising slice of sophistication

  • 4 of 5

Two couples (over 55) stayed here as a base for exploring Bryce. The park is about a half hour away, and we thought it was nice to not be tied up in all of the crowds just outside the gate. The house is not real impressive looking from the outside, but is very functional and stylish inside.....really cool fixtures. It was just as advertised, and the owner was very responsive to our inevitable questions.

The river running through the property was very pretty....though too high for fishing while we were there. We had a nice fire outside one night.

We would definitely stay there again.

Quiet, peaceful GREAT home for a family

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 recently stayed here and it was fantastic. The home was recently renovated and the entire inside is very well done. Very open spaces, great window views and CLEAN! The front porch is entirely covered and the table under that porch is just the perfect spot to sit and read, work or just relax as you look over at Bryce Canyon. Big front yard provides plenty of area for the kids to run around.

The location worked really well for us as we were interested in Zion, Bryce and Escalante during our stay. Yes it's a little bit of a drive from there to any of the parks but coming home always felt great because of this nice peaceful property.

Highly recommend!!!
