Overview

About the property

Enjoy the view of Bryce Canyon from your private patio. This spacious 700 square-foot, one-bedroom apartment has a full kitchen stocked with everything you need to make your own meals (except the food of course - some basic spices, oil, etc. are included) with seating and place settings for four. Quiet and secluded away from the busy tourist areas yet just 1.6 miles to Tropic and only 10 minutes to Bryce Canyon. The private bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed, walk-in closet and full bath (tub/shower). The living room is furnished with sofa, arm chair and 40' Smart TV with blu ray/DVD player. We have two twin-sized extra-height deluxe air beds with memory foam toppers that we can put in the living room for children (also quite comfortable for adults if not too large or tall ). Free WIFI and local phone.

This property is centrally located to many State and National Parks: Bryce Canyon, Red Canyon, Kodachrome Basin, Grand Staircase, Dixie National Forest and just a little further to Zion National Park, Boulder Mountain and Capitol Reef. You could easily stay here for a week without running out of places to go and things to do. You are welcome to use our outdoor fire pit (we keep ingredients for s'mores on hand) and the stars are especially gorgeous out here away from the lights.

We are located just north of Tropic between mile markers 19 and 20. If you are arriving after dark, look for the street light at the intersection of Highway 12 and 1250 N. You will be turning east on a gravel road and we are the second house.

Please note that we do not charge an extra cleaning fee or insurance - the price you see is the price you get. See our agreement for additional details.

We hope to see you soon!

About Steve & Wendi Hill

We moved to Central Utah three years ago because we always wanted to live where we love to spend our vacations. Wendi is a candy maker/chocolatier and you will find a complimentary sample in your room upon arrival. Steve is a teacher.

We owned a wedding and reception center years ago in Northern Utah and found great satisfaction in helping others celebrate their special occasion. We decided that it would be fun to own a bed & breakfast someday when the kids were older. Well, our two oldest are pretty much out of the house and the two youngest are teenagers, so we are now enjoying our dream of helping others enjoy their vacations.

Steve & Wendi Hill purchased this apartment in 2014

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very good location - Bryce Canyon is about 10 minutes away by car . Very friendly hostess who has really tried to fulfill every wish! The price - performance ratio can only be described as very good. As a bonus, we also had really tasty , home-made chocolates from Wendi - great! Thanks for everything!

Comfortable and nice apartment - convenient for Bryce.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Peaceful location on outskirts of Tropic with some nice views. Welcoming hosts. The apartment was very clean, nicely furnished, bed was comfortable and kitchen was well equipped. Our only issue was the extra bed in the living room was an airbed and too short for the third person - a taller adult. For those considering an off-season visit, there isn't much open year round in Tropic itself, so check restaurants, grocery stores etc. before you go! But we much preferred being here to the commercial area outside Bryce and were happy cooking dinners in the apartment. Highly recommend the apartment for 2 people.

Owner's Response: We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry the extra bed did not meet your expectations, however our description of the extra beds indicates that they are very comfortable for children or adults that are not too big or too tall (they are standard twin-sized beds).

Quiet, serene, attractive and clean

  • 5 of 5

The place was just as described and the photos are accurate. What you don't get in the photos are the quiet beauty of the location or what great hosts Wendi and Steve are. We ended up extending by a day, and would have extended longer if we could have.

Great hospitality near Bryce Canyon NP

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything we needed. The kitchen was fully supplied and the bed was very comfortable. The owners were on sight and available for any questions or concerns. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

Excellent!

Loved the unit, except for the lack of internet connection for the TV, especially when viewing a movie.

Owner's Response: We are very fortunate in this remote area of Bryce Canyon to enjoy excellent internet connectivity most of the time. However there are times when it can be a little slower due to conditions beyond our control and, when that happens, it is slower everywhere else in the area too. We are sorry it was not working normally during part of your stay.

Beautiful space, quiet and well kept. Exactly as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place - close to Bryce National Park and other interesting spots, but out of the crowds. Beautiful views. Apartment is very nice and very comfortable - great to come back to after a morning of hiking and such. Wendi and Steve were helpful and accommodating but also respectful of privacy. And Wendi makes incredible chocolates!!

Kitchen is adequately equipped though we noted a few issues (we had trouble finding and figuring out the stove fan; no vegetable steamer we could find - nothing that hugely detracted). Very nice knives, which we always notice and appreciate.

We never could figure out the TV - but really didn't care that much anyway. I know Wendi would have been happy to assist if asked.

We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay again if back in the area.

(there is no recycling, though you can find some at Bryce. We hauled all our glass bottles back to CA).
