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.

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 Torrey

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.

Perfection by the Park

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect. Linda and Martin thought of everything! Beautifully decorated. Fully stocked kitchen. Watch the starry night in gravity chairs outside. Beautiful view. Good internet. Comfortable bed. Clean and neat. Close to the park or other scenic drives. Comfy living room to relax in when you finish your excursions and a great TV to watch. Really all VRBO’s are not created equal and this is the cream of the crop.

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 guests and stayed for a few nights comfortably. The house is stocked with everything you could possibly need and Linda was kind enough to meet us when we got there and show us around! We had such a great time star gazing and watching the lightning show over the Boulder Mtn range. We will definitely go back!

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit and the experience remains the BEST of any HA/VRBO rental we have used over the years in many countries.

The house is extremely comfortable, well furnished and provisioned with everything and anything you might need to include complimentary beer and water ... and even zero gravity chairs to watch the night sky.

The views from the back porch are wonderful. The location is perfect for going to town (great general store) or exploring the wonders of Capitol Reef National Park and the surrounding areas.

Finally, your hosts (Linda and Martin), who live near by, are warm and personable and extremely supportive of your needs.

We will return.

Highest recommendation.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous house, stocked with EvErYthing. Endless BLM trailhead just 200 meters from the house made the cool mornings a trail running adventure. Star gazing was truly breathtaking. Lynda, our host, met us the evening we arrived, settled us in the house, and made this hime feel easy, warm, and definitely somewhere I’d love to stay again.

Gorgeous inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start....the property is beautiful! We never tired of the views from all the rooms, but especially from the back patio where we ate breakfast, sat out after a long day of hiking and stargazed. The owners had everything you could want, just check out the master bathroom cabinets :) . As a hint, do not shop until you check out the house as we made the mistake of shopping for a few things before looking around. They stock the refrigerator and pantries well. They even had all the ingredients for waffles, and we all enjoyed those one morning. The bedrooms are super comfortable and the bathrooms are modern and spacious. We traveled with our two boys, 12 and 15 and they didn't want to leave either. The owners great you on arrival and show you around, but then do not bother you. They are available though for any questions.

I cannot say enough good things about this house, but as you will notice, there is not one review under 5 stars, and I now know why. My only hesitation is that if I tell too many people about it, it will not be available the next time we come, which I hope is soon. Thank you Martin and Linda for our most memorable home on our journey.
