Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Tropic - The Hills

Enjoy the view of Bryce Canyon from your private patio. This spacious 700 square-foot, one-bedroom apartment has a full kitchen stocked with everything you need to make your own meals (except the food of course - some basic spices, oil, etc. are included) with seating and place settings for four. Quiet and secluded away from the busy tourist areas yet just 1.6 miles to Tropic and only 10 minutes to Bryce Canyon. The private bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed, walk-in closet and full bath (tub/shower). The living room is furnished with sofa, arm chair and 40' Smart TV with blu ray/DVD player. We have two twin-sized extra-height air beds that we can put in the living room for children traveling with adults (also quite comfortable for adults if not too large or tall ). Free WIFI and local phone.

This property is centrally located to many State and National Parks: Bryce Canyon, Red Canyon, Kodachrome Basin, Grand Staircase, Dixie National Forest and just a little further to Zion National Park, Boulder Mountain and Capitol Reef. You could easily stay here for a week without running out of places to go and things to do. You are welcome to use our outdoor fire pit (we keep ingredients for s'mores on hand) and the stars are especially gorgeous out here away from the lights.

We are located just north of Tropic between mile markers 19 and 20. If you are arriving after dark, look for the street light at the intersection of Highway 12 and 1250 N. You will be turning east on a gravel road and we are the second house.

Please note that we do not charge an extra cleaning fee or insurance - the price you see is the price you get. See our agreement for additional details.

We hope to see you soon!

About Steve & Wendi Hill

We moved to Central Utah three years ago because we always wanted to live where we love to spend our vacations. Wendi is a candy maker/chocolatier and you will find a complimentary sample in your room upon arrival. Steve is a teacher.

We owned a wedding and reception center years ago in Northern Utah and found great satisfaction in helping others celebrate their special occasion. We decided that it would be fun to own a bed & breakfast someday when the kids were older. Well, our two oldest are pretty much out of the house and the two youngest are teenagers, so we are now enjoying our dream of helping others enjoy their vacations.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very good location - Bryce Canyon is about 10 minutes away by car . Very friendly hostess who has really tried to fulfill every wish! The price - performance ratio can only be described as very good. As a bonus, we also had really tasty , home-made chocolates from Wendi - great! Thanks for everything!

Beautiful suite, would definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest rentals we've stayed at. It's basically like a large suite at a higher end inn. Very tastefully decorated and filled with amenities and cute little touches like complimentary handmade chocolate. Room service such as new towels or having the bed made are available everyday by request too. The setting is very peaceful and relaxing and it's pretty convenient to access Bryce Canyon (about a 15 mins drive). Our only recommendation to improve the place would be to do a bit of landscaping near the entrance to the unit. The view is gorgeous and we enjoyed sitting outside in the chairs provided.

Very comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable, even with our two kids on air mattresses. It's a quiet location, but perfectly situated for exploring Utah parks. Bryce Canyon and Red Canyon are short drives to the northwest, while Grand Staircase - Escalante and Kodachrome Basin are just to the south. On top of that, the owners (Steve and Wendi) are great. Highly recommended!

Wonderful, peaceful experience

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I came here in the beginning of July to stay for one night while we explored Bryce Canyon National Park. The thing that first struck us was the amazing sense of quiet and peace surrounding this place. It is really out in a secluded spot, yet it is a very quick and convenient drive to the park.

The owners are wonderful--so nice and accommodating. They were very flexible and helpful with everything we needed. They also thought of all of the little details--there was a fully-stocked Keurig, little shampoos in the bathroom, a pantry full of things we might need for cooking, Netflix, and even a rack of DVDs--many current--for us to choose from. As a treat, they left us delightful little chocolates.

There was so little light pollution that at night, the stars were amazing. We could see the Milky Way Galaxy, and in about 30 minutes, I saw at least 3 shooting stars. Even though it was a little cloudy, the stars were so bright and so close. I would come back just for this nighttime view.

The apartment is wonderful--clean, attractive, and very comfortable. I only wish that we had stayed longer--maybe next year, we will!

When you go to Bryce Canyon, DEFINITELY don't miss one of the canyon hikes. We did the Navajo/Queens Garden loop and loved every minute of it.

Thanks for a fantastic experience all around!

If you want to be close to Bryce Canyon, able to connect to major routes to other attractions and take scenic drives, then this property is where you want to be.

Not only location wise but comfort, security and appreciated wise. This apartment has everything you could possibly need. It is spacious, it is very clean, it is comfortable, everything works and Steve & Wendi Hill are just the best. There are easy to follow written instructions for everything in the apartment but if you still have questions they are happy to answer them for you. There are very nice views available from the patio and even though you have close access to Highway 12 it is surprisingly quiet. From Highway 12 and 89 (just up the road a bit) you can go anywhere and see anything. If you are looking for a brisked paced little town like Moab you won't find it in Tropic. But, if you want to go out for the day and do the tours and see the sights and then come back for a relaxing and quiet evening then this is the place for you. If you need wi-fi you will find that it works very well as Steve & Wendi have thought of just about everything a vacationer could need right down to the Keurig coffee pot with specialty blends and an excellent assortment of movie cds. Oh, and the candy...did we mention the candy? Wendi makes excellent truffles!
