Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Torrey - Torrey Home, Torrey, Ut

New Modern, one story house with 2 bedrooms,2 bathrooms and 2 large patios

WELCOME TO OUR TORREY VACATION HOME

Our home is new and modern with an open layout your family and guests will love. Professionally decorated, each room is simple yet of the high quality. Large windows and sliding glass doors allow you to experience every sunrise, sunset, and magnificent scenery without ever stepping outside. When you do step out, you step onto two large patios designed for your comfort, a place to relax, read or to entertain. As you dine, the balmy breezes and red rock vistas just add to your enjoyment.

For your privacy, the home has bedrooms and bathrooms on opposite ends. One bathroom features a large, rain head shower and the other a Jacuzzi tub. Each bedroom opens onto a private patio. The beds, mattresses and linens are of high quality for a good night’s sleep. For your convenience, we have a new stacking washer and dryer, if needed.

If cooking is your passion, look no further. Our vacation home kitchen is complete. All new Stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and island. You’ll find all of the cooking tools you need from good, sharp knifes to quality pots and pans. The cupboards are filled with dishes, utensils and glasses, mixing bowls and the main staples – flour, sugar, coffee, spices, plus more. Included are top of the line coffee and tea maker, waffle iron, ice cream /sorbet maker, popcorn popper, pancake griddle, blender, mixer, etc. You’ll love preparing your meals as you look out the 8’ window to the creek below and the clouds forming over the Boulder Mountains.

The east patio has a first-class, gas, BBQ with a beautiful wicker table that seats six. There are also two lounge chairs with ottomans for relaxing and watching for wild turkeys, rabbits, deer and elk that frequent the area. We enjoy our morning coffee watching the sun come up from this patio. The west patio and entrance to the house is best for the views of the red rock vistas and sunsets from the two lounge chairs and ottomans. Both patios are covered for year round enjoyment. Off the patio are gravity loungers for star gazing.

We also have all the electronics you’ll need – large screen cable TV, DVD/Blue Ray player, high speed Wi-Fi internet and wireless printer. Relax in front of the fireplace while watching the game or catch up on emails at the desk in the master bedroom.

We are located minutes away from beautiful hiking and biking trails, National Forests, Torrey Town and its restaurants, bars and shopping, and the gateway to Capitol Reef National Park. Other Utah destinations like Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Lake Powell, are within hours drive making our home a perfect base camp.

We are always available for any information or questions you may have about our home and the surrounding area. Call 801-518-2918

We look forward to your sojourn to our Capitol Reef Vacation Home in Torrey, Utah.

About Martin & Linda Townsend

We purchased our 1st piece of property here in Torrey, Utah in 1981 with the idea of eventually retiring here. Now that we have sold our business we decided to build this vacation home which enables us enjoy this area year round. We love the hiking, fishing, exploring, picnics in the park and the patio parties our family and friends enjoy. Torrey has always been a special place to rest and renew ourselves, a place of discovery.

Martin & Linda Townsend purchased this house in 2014

Why Martin & Linda Townsend chose Utah

We bought this property because of the magnificent red rock views and the creek that runs through the back of our property under the cottonwood trees. We are within 100 yards of national forest land that provides unbelievable hiking and exploring. At 7,000 ft. with mountains above us and desert below, there is always a soft breeze that makes the temperature here very comfortable, especially for sleeping. Star watching at night is incredible, when was the last time you saw the Milky Way?

What makes this house unique

A benefit of our home is the proximity to the town, restaurants, bars and Capital Reef National Park. Other things of benefit is it’s one level, heating and air conditioned, multiple large widows to bring the outside in, well stocked kitchen for those of us who love to cook and large patios to entertain on.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have visited Torrey and stayed at most of the lodges, cabins, motels over the past 25 years. I can say with some authority that this property is unique in that it is new, clean, well managed and feels like a home. The owners have stocked the frig, cupboards (sugar, salt, pancake mix, syrup, coffee, pam) so that you can actually cook a meal if you want. There are also good quality pots, pans, skillets, knives + unusual items like an ice cream maker, waffle maker. Appliances, furniture are IKEA or better. There are overhead fans, gas fireplace, full sized new w/d. There is an owner prepared book with menus from local restaurants+ manuals to any appliance or gadget you might have questions about. There are excellent books covering regional topics along with binoculars for studying the vista. This property reminds me of upscale lodges or hotels in America or Costa Rica or elsewhere that provide you with not only comfortable lodging, but an enriched environment to enhance your visit. Thank you for offering this experience to us. I certainly appreciate it and will help maintain it's pristine condition.

Best Rental Ever!

  • 5 of 5

How can I even begin to explain how wonderful this home was?!! This was our first stop on our weeklong vacation to visit the National Parks in Utah and, wow, did it set the standard! Let me begin by saying that, for the remainder of the trip, when we talked about any other place we stayed, even when we liked it, we would still say "Well, Martin would have...." (meaning Martin would have done it even better!). A few minutes after our arrival, Martin Townsend politely greeted us, without interfering, to explain or demonstrate how things worked in the house. He was so pleasant and kind that we offered him a drink to stay and chat for a few minutes. Honestly, no home could be more well-stocked. The refrigerator, freezer, and kitchen cabinets were so full that I feel you could stay a week there and never leave the house! And that includes the bathrooms - anything that you can imagine that would be in your bathroom at home, would be in Martin's bathrooms. And we loved the comfy, white robes provided in the wardrobe closets. Everything was spotlessly clean as well. The seating in the living room was so comfortable (soft, thick throws are even provided for each chair and sofa) and we loved our evening cozied up to the warm fireplace watching one of the MANY movies provided in the bookshelf. At every turn, we were amazed at how much attention to detail Martin and Linda provided. We loved star gazing in the zero gravity chairs right off the back deck. There really is no place like it! Martin and Linda have set the standard too high for any another home to compare. Thank you, Linda and Martin, for sharing your beautiful home with us. Our visit there is definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Anne Davidson

Lovely setting and view. Great location for visiting Capitol Reef!

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate modern home and the most well-equipped (for cooking and more) VRBO we've stayed in! Linda and Martin are first class hosts as they've thought of most everything to make the stay comfortable. It is a great place for two couples. We highly recommend!!

The best - ten stars.

  • 5 of 5

All of the reviews are true. The setting of this home with its 360 degree views, the beauty of the design, the comfort, the well-stocked kitchen - the Townsends have thought of everything. It was a pleasure to meet Martin, who made sure we were settled in and knew how to operate the fireplace, etc. It was so easy to cook dinner in the kitchen. As Martin advised, there is a wonderful hike into the National Forest from the end of the street. My friend and I loved this place and will return. Thank you, Martin and Linda, for being the best hosts!

Beautiful home and property; very well cared for

  • 5 of 5

Another terrific stay at this beautiful property in Torrey. House is still fairly new, quite modern, very clean. Kitchen and baths are wonderful. Views are amazing. Easy access to Capital Reef, Escalante, Dixie National Forest, and Boulder, UT.

The owners take a lot of pride in this home and it shows. This was our visit and we are planning the next one.
