The Sevier River Retreat is a secluded and luxurious ranch house that sits on 9 acres surrounded by the Sevier River on 3 sides, and close to Bryce Canyon and Zion. The house looks directly at the back of Bryce Canyon and the Sevier River. Most windows in the house have a view, and there are no neighbors.
The property was entirely renovated, decorated and furnished in 2015 with an neo-industrial/farm style mixing wood and metal. The house features accents of barnwood (most of it from the property itself) and many of the furniture pieces and lighting fixtures were custom made from local artisans using reclaimed barnwood. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms (the master bathroom has a jacuzzi tub and separate tiled walk-in shower, while the upstairs bathroom has a large tub / shower combination with a view of the river) and a half bath, with a size of approximately 1800 sf.
The house offer all the amenities of home including free wifi (30 Mbps) throughout the house, four LCD flat screen TVs that offer Netflix and Amazon Video streaming service (no broadcast, cable or satellite channels), as well as Pandora for music and ambiance. We provide many extras for our guests, such as a printer to print out itineraries and boarding passes, cellphone chargers, reverse osmosis drinking water, locally made artisan soaps, shampoo, coffee from the region and much more. The gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances and is well equipped for cooking lavish meals and baking treats in the convection oven. A German style wood barbeque is available outside for grilling. Washer and dryer is also provided. Note that the Retreat does not have air conditioning, as summers do not get very hot at the higher elevation in Hatch, but all windows have screens so they can be opened to take advantage of the breeze.
The downstairs master bedroom has a split king bed, ie two separate twin natural latex mattresses side by side. The second bedroom has a normal california king bed with spring mattress, and the third bedroom has two separate twin beds also with spring mattresses.
You will enjoy a good night rest in eery silence. If you're from the big city, it will take some getting used to!
During the winter, cuddle up around the automatic pellet stove in the living room, which provides radiant warmth with a cozy fire (sufficient supply of pellets is provided for your entire stay), and watch the snowy landscapes outside.
During the summer, open up the double doors and blur the lines between inside and outside, as you watch the pink cliffs light up during majestic sunsets, and animals and birds using the river while you have dinners on the wraparound decks. Or watch horses or cows grazing during afternoon tea on the outdoor rocking chairs.
The property is equipped with state-of-the-art electronic locks so that guests can check themselves in at any time, and late check-in is not a problem. Guests have access to the entire house, and can roam freely on the 9 acres as well as fish (with a Utah fishing license, that can be purchased online) and swim in the Sevier River.
We live 3 hours away near Las Vegas, and will leave you in complete privacy. However we are always available to answer any questions or give you tips for daytrips or restaurants. We speak fluent French, German, Spanish and English.
Do not hesitate to reach out with any question, prior or during your trip.
There is no public transportation. You will need a car. 4x4 or high clearance is recommended in order to enjoy the surrounding trails, but a regular low-clearance sedan is sufficient to access the Retreat itself.
We have a strict no-pet and no-smoking policy.
If the property is sold out for your prefered dates, check out the sister property "The Lookout", also located on the Sevier River and newly remodeled with an urban industrial style.
About our cleaning fee: you may wonder why our cleaning fee is so high. Due to the rural location of the property, there are few reliable professional cleaners available, so good cleaners are able to charge a premium. Many competing vacation rentals use spotty cleaners or family members to clean. We do not compromise on cleaning services because we want you to find the property spotless, just like you would expect at a high end resort. We also use only eco-friendly cleaning products and laundry detergents (as well as 100% cotton bedding), so that the bathroom doesn't smell of bleach and guests with alergies can feel comfortable.
