Watch the first pink rays of sunrise light up the rim of Bryce Canyon as you gaze out the lofty windows of this spacious second-story vacation suite. Situated in the heart of peaceful Henrieville valley, this large farm home is nestled between its own little creek and mini-wilderness area on one side and tranquil farm land on the other.
Just off Scenic Highway 12, down a private gravel drive and past grandpa’s old pasture, you’ll pass through beautiful flower and vegetable gardens (in season) and park in the rear of the home. You’ll have private outside stairway access to the spacious 1200 square foot suite with its many windows and panoramic mountain views.
The suite’s open floor plan creates a casual, relaxing atmosphere that will accommodate your entire family or group in comfort—or keep the entire suite for just the two of you! Vaulted ceilings, faux antique walls, knotty aspen ceilings, and rustic post and beam accents provide a spacious, homey feeling throughout. You can cook your own meals in the fully furnished kitchen, or eat out at one of several seasonal restaurants a few miles away. You’ll find the two full baths and washer/dryer handy for cleaning up after a long day of outdoor excitement.
When you return to the house to rest from your adventures, curl up on the comfortable couches in the great room to watch a favorite movie on the flat-screen TV and DVD player, or surf the web and send pictures of your unforgettable experiences to your friends and family at home using the free wi-fi access.
The grounds around this home include a large, grassy area for your recreational use. Kids will enjoy playing games on the grass, using the swing set, going down the sixteen-foot tube slide, or exploring the nearby creek. Soak in the ambiance of warm summer evenings around the outdoor fire pit as you toast marshmallows and watch the stars appear. Your memories of this rural home setting will make you want to return again and again!
Located in the center of Utah’s red rock country, you will find some of the most breathtaking views in America within easy driving distance. In addition to seeing the wonders of Bryce Canyon National Park and the Grand Staircase National Monument, several interesting State parks are nearby. Many outdoor activities are also available in the area, such as hiking trails and slot canyons, biking, canyoneering, horseback riding, fishing, wildlife viewing, and ATV tours.
Here is what a recent guest had to say:
"Located quite close to the entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park, this inexpensive accommodation is a rare find. Although it is visible from Route 12, you have NO sense that you are anywhere near a highway once you arrive. The panoramic scenery is complex, sweeping, and riveting. Stellar jays with bold blue bellies, jet black magpies with stark white wings, and tangerine meadowlarks greet you as you drive along the country lane to Sunrise Hollow. Cottontail rabbits dot the lawn, and the moonlight on the landscape at night is mesmerizing. And stargazing on moonless nights here is fabulous!
Once you are inside, you have the entire top floor of a large house to yourselves. The design is original, highly sophisticated, expertly realized, and meticulously finished. Milt and Brenda Rose, most gracious hosts, designed it themselves and completed most of the work on their own. The results are stunning. You are far from the madding crowd, briefly experiencing life on what is literally an extended family farm with every modern amenity at your fingertips. Yet you can jump on the highway and be at Bryce in a nonce. Skip even the 'better' hotels in this area for a genuine and deeply satisfying stay at one sweet slice of heaven. -Dr. Gina Higgins, Marblehead, MA · May 2015"
