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 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.

Perfect weekend trip to Capitol Reef

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to yummy blueberry muffins and a homemade snack for our little pup. The house was really nice, seemed brand new. The fire place is great to hang out by at night after you soak in the nice deep tub. The house is stocked with everything you would need and then some: Hot chocolate, coffee, waffle maker, laundry detergent and all the spices you need for making a great meal. If you forgot something like q-tips or your cooler don't worry they have that too. The grill was clean and easy to use. The owners have really thought of everything to make your stay super comfortable. The back yard was super fun to explore. At night the stars are incredible, you can gaze at them through the windows if it's to cold out. We will defiantly book again in the spring. -Laura Trinnaman

Owner's Response: We are so glad your family enjoyed our home. Even in a cooler month, you were able to enjoy time on the patio and to enjoy the night sky. We'd love to have you back anytime.

Wonderful house, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

This house and the owners are the BEST. We spent 2 nights at Linda's home while we were visiting Capital Reef NP. The house is beautiful, everything is new and is furnished in a first class manner. The kitchen is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need.The refrigerator was stocked with drinks, condiments, and other food. The beds were so comfortable, the towels were soft and plush, and the bathrooms were so beautiful. Linda welcomed us upon arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. The house is only 10 miles from Capitol Reef NP. The area is gorgeous and we would definitely stay here again. Thanks for making our stay so comfortable.

Worth at least 10 stars

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Martin's house deserves more than a five star rating in every way, as they do, too, as our hosts. On the outskirts of the pretty little Utah town of Torrey, the house is well-located for hiking in Capital Reef National Park. It is equally well-located for sitting on the property's expansive decks and admiring the red rock scenery at sunset. The furniture and furnishings are comfortable, modern and very attractive. The gas log fireplace is an added bonus. The kitchen and two bathrooms are spacious and equipped with up to- the minute fixtures and fittings. We'll certainly try and stay at this house again. Our thanks to Linda and Martin for helping to make our trip so enjoyable.

Absolutely wonderful in all ways

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay to access the NP and its surrounding areas (which there are many fabulous places to explore & hike). The kitchen is furnished to the max, there are many DVDs to watch & the cable TV has MANY channels. If you were ever rained out you would not be bored. I wish we would have more home time, but we were out hiking every day. The views from the house (inside & our) were spectacular. The owners, Linda & Martin, were so nice and accommodating, & best instruction book I have ever seen (but never needed it - things are set up to be easy!) We already booked it for 2019.

Best vacation rental we have ever stayed in, hands down!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our experience with this rental was superb! What we enjoyed most were the beautiful views from the huge windows in every room, the two large decks (also with great views), and the modern and spacious kitchen and bathrooms. The pictures online do not do it justice! The house was spotless and it had a great floor plan. The kitchen was stocked better than ours at home! Martin and Linda went above and beyond numerous times and their pride in their beautiful property shows. They sent information on the area and hiking trails once our reservation was made, and Linda even came over to introduce herself/see if we needed anything once we checked in.

If you are debating on where to stay in the area, look no further!
