Spencer Rex purchased this House in 1983
Why Spencer Rex chose Escalante
My family bought this land in 1983 so that my large family (10 of us!) and our extended family would have a place vacation together. As a child, "The Ranch" as we called it was a little boy dreamland. We built forts, drove 4 wheelers, built damns in the river, swam in the waterfall, climbed mountains and discovered ancient Native American dwellings, and on and on. When I was 16 I moved into the restored Isaac Riddle Cabin where I finished high school at Escalante High. Soon after that my mother, Joette Marie Rex and my late father, Jeff Rex, decided to build the Slot Canyons Inn on the property. The Inn has been a business success and a place where me and my siblings can return to to share our childhood wonderland with our children. Soon after my Brother, Adam Rex, built his house on the property and started the North Creek Grill. In November of 2017, my mom decided to give all her kids a piece of property that we could build on. We picked out of a hat and I ended up with the property where the house is now. After that, my brother and I walked to the most incredibly beautiful spot on my property, with 360 degree views of the valley to the south, mountains to the north and cliffs all around. We stood on the spot and thought about what a house on that spot should be. 6 months later, Adam started building it! I'm excited for other people to have the incredible experiences that I've had on this property.

An incredible house!
We just loved this well-stocked house, the architecture, the land, the surrounding area, the views,.... everything was better than we could have imagined and expected. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and wish that it could have been longer! Thank you for sharing your property with us.
None better than this!
Wow! We thought the pictures looked good, but you just gotta see the place in person to really appreciate the vision, planning, outlay, and attention to detail that went into carving this amazing gem in one of nature's finest settings. No expense was spared in providing guests literally a dream house to relax in peace and quiet. We used this home as our base of many hikes in the area. What a treat to come "home" with tired body, and feel rejuvenated each night, ready for another round of outdoor challenge. There is also an excellent restaurant just down the hill that has absolutely the best trout dinner on the planet. By all means, splurge a bit if needed. You'll have lasting memories of your time spent here. Hope to return down the road.
Love this house!
Beautiful house. Gorgeous views. Perfect setup for a hiking group! North Creek Cafe close and amazing food.
Thanks! Glad you liked it!
Absolutely beautiful views from every window and the balcony at night with the stars was amazing!
We were so surprised at how beautiful this property was! We walked in and just kept saying " WOW"! We had three couples, and everyone had separate a living space, including own bathrooms. The house is truly a work of art, and we appreciated the views from all corners!
We had a great stay in Escalante! The owner and his family were helpful and accommodating. The property is beautiful, the views spectacular and very convenient to the small town of Escalante for outfitters, groceries and dining. Dining at the Slot Canyon Inn was exceptional. We highly recommend the property.
An extraordinary property.
An amazing place to
Experience Escalante and the canyons of Utah! Super cool and very comfortable. We are one of the first to rent and home was recently built. House needs a couple things, like screens, but surely will all come together. Def want to come back and stay here again next canyon trip! Btw, the slot canyon inn, a lovely 5 min walk, has the best food in town!
