About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Relax after a day of wondrous hiking, biking, birding, or just appreciating the beauty which surrounds this cozy house located off the Burr Trail approximately 2 miles south of Boulder, Utah. Breathe in the spectacular views from the covered patio south into the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and the Escalante River drainages. The backdrop for the house is the side of Black Ledge Mesa with Navajo sandstone and the signature black basalt boulders unique to this area. The house sits on 10 acres, and the property extends upward onto the mesa side.

Boulder is perfectly located among thousands of acres of fascinating public lands. Bryce Canyon National Park is 81 miles to the west, and Capital Reef is 50 miles to the east, both via the scenic highway 12. And, of course, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is almost right outside the door. The visitor center is located in Escalante, 25 miles through some of the most gorgeous country in the world.

The house is completely outfitted with Laundry, wifi, and a tv for watching movies. Upstairs hosts a loft with a door to the back yard*, a 3/4 bath and a bedroom with a queen size bed. The downstairs bedroom has a double bed. There is also a blow-up single bed if necessary.

Boulder has two fantastic restaurants; The Hell’s Backbone Grill, and the Burr Trail Grill. Neither of these are open all year long however. Be wise, check the restaurant dates, and bring food with you to cook at the house. The closest grocery store is in Escalante, and is not very large. More items can be found in Loa at the Royals Grocery.

*The back yard is fenced for a dog. This helps keep the deer, bunnies, squirrels, and neighbors calm and happy. Good dogs are welcome, but chasing wildlife (or anything for that matter) is not allowed.
