About Wayne Gardner
My wife & I have just gone into partnership with my wife sister and her husband. My wife & I are retired or at least we thought we were retires until we purchased this property. We live in the Salr Lake area and our partners live just down the road from Torrey in Loa, Utah. We have enjoyed the anticipation of making a nice place for people to stay.
Wayne Gardner purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Wayne Gardner chose Torrey
My wife's sister called one day and said there's a piece of property in Torrey we want you to look at. We hesitated but decided to take the beautiful drive up to Torrey. It's a very nice drive so we couldn't lose. When we saw the place it was a no brainer. We fell in love with the house and the area around Torrey. What makes this property so interesting is that it was never suposted to be apartments. The couple that built it put the home above the garage for the view. Later, for health reasons and not able to clime stairs, they built another nice home where the garage was . Then a daughter need a place to stay so another addition was made. And then the Mother in-law needed cared for so another addition was made. Each addition having there own modern conveniences; made it perfect for what we have turned it into. We are proud to offer our home to traveler from all over the world.
What makes this Apartment unique
The entrance Capital Reef National Monument is approximately 7 miles from Torrey. The Grand Staircase National Mounument is a 45 minute drive away, it's 90 Miles to Bryce Canyon National Park. There are guided tour based out of Torrey right in front of our place, hike, fishing and hunting. Breath takingly Beautiful scenery made up of red rock cliffs, pine covered mountain, beautiful valley farms, wild game in abundance. If it isn't hunting season their still beautiful to look at. Our large nice back yard is perfect for the kid and anyone else to have picnics and just play family games.

This was located so close to Capital Reef National Park, we were thrilled. We got in late and the apartment was super cold, but it heated up after awhile and stayed nice and warm the rest of the trip. The kitchen is stocked with basic needs and worked well for cooking. We could hear the family above us fairly well, it didn't really bother us, but if you're looking for more privacy, look at renting the #2 apartment (it's a floor up). The restaurant right across the street was very good. Owner responded quickly to questions. Torrey was such a neat little town, we were happy we chose here. All in all, it was a very spacious & cozy place to stay. Better than a hotel any day!
Great base for Capitol Reef exploration
The apartment was comfortable and VERY clean. It's actually more space than my wife and I needed, but why stay in a tiny hotel room for the same price? Very close to Capitol Reef NP so no long drive after a day of hiking. We hit a rainy day during our stay and got quite muddy hiking. Having the washer and dryer was great. The kitchen is adequate for basic meals if you want to cook, and there are several restaurants in walking distance from the apartment. Additional choices are available in Bicknell, just a few miles away. The owner was very responsive to our request for an additional blanket and towels. We travel often and this apartment will be on our repeat visit list.
Thanks for a great stay.
Very nice place.
We visited capitol reef park. Had delicious pizza at red cliff restaurant. great service!
Great appartement. Great location. Nice yard with beautiful apple trees.
This apartment is nice and seems newly renovated. Layout is a bit funky/fun as the house seems to be a previous duplex carved up into appartments. Past reviews have mentioned heating problems. There are now built in electric heaters in each room, which seem effective, but a bit hard to fine tune the temperature. There is also a fireplace with a remote control, but we couldn't get that to work. Parking is a bit crowded, but we managed fine. Bedroom was a bit sparten with no deco on the White Walls.
Clean, spacious, convienient, Close to Capital reef
Nice, well equipped quiet place close to capital reef
Thank you Wayne for sharing your lovely home with us for a couple of days. We had a very pleasant stay.
Best regards from the Mac family.
