About the property

New Modern Home with Spectacular Views from every Window and Patio

WELCOME TO OUR TORREY SPRINGS 2 HOME

Our home is new and modern with an open layout your family and guests will love. Professionally decorated, each room is simple yet of high quality. Large windows and sliding glass doors allow you to experience every sunrise, sunset, and magnificent scenery without ever stepping outside. When you do step out, you step onto two large patios designed for your comfort, a place to relax, read or to entertain. As you dine, the balmy breezes and red rock vistas just add to your enjoyment.

For your privacy, the home has bedrooms and bathrooms on opposite ends. One bathroom features a large, rain head shower and the other a Jacuzzi tub. Each bedroom opens onto a private patio. The beds, mattresses and linens are of high quality for a good night’s sleep. For your convenience, we have a new stacking washer and dryer, if needed.

If cooking is your passion, look no further. Our vacation home kitchen is complete. All new Stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and island. You’ll find all of the cooking tools you need from good, sharp knifes to quality pots and pans. The cupboards are filled with dishes, utensils and glasses, mixing bowls and the main staples – flour, sugar, coffee, spices, plus more. Included are top of the line coffee and tea maker, waffle iron, ice cream /sorbet maker, popcorn popper, pancake griddle, blender, mixer, etc. You’ll love preparing your meals as you look out the 8’ window to the creek below and the clouds forming over the Boulder Mountains.

The east patio has a first-class, gas, BBQ with a beautiful wicker table that seats six. There are also two lounge chairs with ottomans for relaxing and watching for wild turkeys, rabbits, deer and elk that frequent the area. We enjoy our morning coffee watching the sun come up from this patio. The west patio and entrance to the house is best for the views of the red rock vistas and sunsets from the two lounge chairs and ottomans. Both patios are covered for year round enjoyment. Off the patio are gravity loungers for star gazing.

We also have all the electronics you’ll need – large screen cable TV, DVD/Blue Ray player, high speed Wi-Fi internet and wireless printer. Relax in front of the fireplace while watching the game or catch up on emails at the desk in the master bedroom.

We are located minutes away from beautiful hiking and biking trails, National Forests, Torrey Town and its restaurants, bars and shopping, and the gateway to Capitol Reef National Park. Other Utah destinations like Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Lake Powell, are within hours drive making our home a perfect base camp.

We are always available for any information or questions you may have about our home and the surrounding area. Call 801-518-2918

We look forward to your sojourn to our Capitol Reef Vacation Home in Torrey, Utah.

About Martin & Linda Townsend

We purchased our 1st piece of property here in Torrey, Utah in 1981 with the idea of eventually retiring here. Now that we have sold our business we decided to build this vacation home which enables us enjoy this area year round. We love the hiking, fishing, exploring, picnics in the park and the patio parties our family and friends enjoy. Torrey has always been a special place to rest and renew ourselves, a place of discovery.

Martin & Linda Townsend purchased this house in 2014

Why Martin & Linda Townsend chose Utah

We bought this property because of the magnificent red rock views and the creek that runs through the back of our property under the cottonwood trees. We are within 100 yards of national forest land that provides unbelievable hiking and exploring. At 7,000 ft. with mountains above us and desert below, there is always a soft breeze that makes the temperature here very comfortable, especially for sleeping. Star watching at night is incredible, when was the last time you saw the Milky Way?

What makes this house unique

A benefit of our home is the proximity to the town, restaurants, bars and Capital Reef National Park. Other benefits are it’s one level, heating and air conditioned, multiple large widows to bring the outside in, well stocked kitchen for those of us who love to cook and large patios to entertain on.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have visited Torrey and stayed at most of the lodges, cabins, motels over the past 25 years. I can say with some authority that this property is unique in that it is new, clean, well managed and feels like a home. The owners have stocked the frig, cupboards (sugar, salt, pancake mix, syrup, coffee, pam) so that you can actually cook a meal if you want. There are also good quality pots, pans, skillets, knives + unusual items like an ice cream maker, waffle maker. Appliances, furniture are IKEA or better. There are overhead fans, gas fireplace, full sized new w/d. There is an owner prepared book with menus from local restaurants+ manuals to any appliance or gadget you might have questions about. There are excellent books covering regional topics along with binoculars for studying the vista. This property reminds me of upscale lodges or hotels in America or Costa Rica or elsewhere that provide you with not only comfortable lodging, but an enriched environment to enhance your visit. Thank you for offering this experience to us. I certainly appreciate it and will help maintain it's pristine condition.

Beautiful home with Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this Torrey home. It was even nicer than the pictures show. We enjoyed relaxing on the front and back decks, taking in the fantastic views and watching the wildlife. Everything we could think of was already in the home and we were very comfortable. This home is a VRBO jewel - we can't say enough good things about it. The location was far enough away to be quiet, but close enough to access Capital Reef National Park. Good restaurants nearby and Grand Staircase - Escalante is pretty close too. The owners were very responsive and helpful in answering questions. Renting this home is a "no brainer".

Absolutely LOVED it!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay. We wish we stayed longer. It was very clean and spacious for 6 people. The skies at night, sunrise/sunset, and the sceneries outside the patio was spectacular. Will definitely go back and recommend it to family and friends. Thank Linda and Martin for welcoming us to your beautiful home. It was a pleasure meeting you both.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property in Torrey. It was a great base for us to explore Capitol Reef National Park. The home was spotless and well equipped with everything we could possibly need or want. The home was bright and airy with terrific views out any window. We enjoyed cooking in the well stocked kitchen and relaxing outside on the porches watching sunrises and sunsets! Would definitely stay here again if in the area!
