This property is part of a 160 acre private in holding in the heart of
The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, seated halfway
between Bryce Canyon National Park and Capitol Reef National Park.
Located where Scenic Highway 12 ('The Golden Loop') crosses the
Escalante River, it is the hiking trail head to the renowned Escalante
Canyons. The main home (see vrbo 228445) and guest house are the
only structures on the last 40 acres downriver before 75 miles of
wilderness area that runs all the way to Lake Powell.
This getaway is a quaint 2 story 1 bedroom, 1 bath river front guest
home that is perfect for two. The 700 sq. ft. home faces views of the
Escalante Canyon, meadows, cliffs, and river and sits in a lush
riparian oasis surrounded by 600 ft. sandstone cliffs. The guest house
faces away from the main house 600 ft. away, so as to maximize
privacy. Hike from the front door to first class scenic wonders.
Magnificent views can be seen from the living/dining area, and from
the fully equipped kitchen that has granite counter tops, cherry wood
cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. The master bedroom with a
king bed is on the 2nd floor. The bedroom and 6x12 balcony have
beautiful meadow and red rock canyon views. The shower is an oval
glass mosaic tile walk in, no doors needed, with a colorful, local
river pebble floor. The walls of the home are plastered with the
beautiful red canyon sand. The home has excellent wi-fi and no TV. A
high clearance vehicle is preferable for the concreted low-water river
crossing (generally 1 ft. deep).
