About the property

New Modern, One Story House With 2 Bedrooms,2 Bathrooms And 2 Large Patios


Our home is new and modern with an open layout your family and guests will love. Professionally decorated, each room is simple yet of 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 Torrey

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.

Absolute, without a doubt the best rental we've stayed in

  • 5 of 5

A 15+ year user of vacation rentals this one has risen to the top. Don't know how the owners did it but anything and everything needed for a comfortable stay was here. First off the house was spotless-pretty clear the owners want guests to have a good experience. Kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, decks, furniture , tv, internet....everything was top of the line. Little things like a first aid kit, Q-tips, every possible kitchen utensil imaginable, sun block.....it goes on and on-the owners have stocked everything you might need. The only bad thing is all future rentals will be compared to this one-if they come close I'd be surprised and very happy.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully situated and appointed rental home where the owners have thought of EVERYTHING you could possibly need or want in a vacation property. It is new and impeccably clean, furnished in good taste and leaving the focal point of the large windows looking out onto dramatic redrock cliffs and mountain vistas, which one can gaze upon forever. Landlords are available on the large and generous property for any questions while respecting renters' privacy. Great pet friendly rental with access to the Great Western Trail for spectacular hiking is right down the street, no need to drive. This is a true 5 star rental which we enjoyed enormously and would recommend highly to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed our home and the area. You were lucky to have such lovely weather while you were here. We like that you took the trail just up the street and took your dogs too, it allows for that freedom and peace and quiet.

House was very clean and well organized. The house was stocked with literally everything you could possibly need including beer in the fridge! If you love to cook, the kitchen is amazing and set up to cook large and elaborate meals. The hosts were very accommodating and friendly to communicate with. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Capitol Reef.

Great location and views; super well-stocked home in Torrey!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend staying at this Torrey property. It is in a great location, close to town and Capitol Reef, with beautiful views out every window. The house was clean and very well stocked with everything we needed to cook in the kitchen, etc. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Torrey.

This VRH is the best we have rented during our 10 days trip. The home was very clean, set up inside was very modern, all equipment are working very nicely. Owner Martin greeted us after we first checked in. He was a very nice and friendly folk. He took time to explained everything we need to know about the house. Beer, soft drink, coffee, water, and everything else, that you can think of, are very well stocked. Even, the pancake mix, cooking oil, the detergent, etc. Also, the home are very conveniently located. It has a beautiful view front and back. We would definitely come back if we visiting Capitol Reef again. Would love to take another rent at Martin and Linda's place.

This property really felt like home. Martin had everything supplied wonderfully, from soap and shampoo to cold drinks in the fridge. He came to meet us and ensured we knew where everything was and how everything worked. Our favorite stay of many on our trip to Utah.
