The Sevier River Retreat is a secluded and luxurious ranch house that sits on 9 acres surrounded by the Sevier River on 3 sides, and close to Bryce Canyon and Zion. The house looks directly at the back of Bryce Canyon and the Sevier River. Most windows in the house have a view, and there are no neighbors.
The property was entirely renovated, decorated and furnished in 2015 with an neo-industrial/farm style mixing wood and metal. The house features accents of barnwood (most of it from the property itself) and many of the furniture pieces and lighting fixtures were custom made from local artisans using reclaimed barnwood. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms (the master bathroom has a jacuzzi tub and separate tiled shower) and a half bath, with a size of approximately 1800 sf.
The house offer all the amenities of home including high speed wifi (30 Mbps) throughout the house, four LCD flatscreen TVs that offer Netflix and Amazon Video streaming service (no broadcast, cable or satellite channels), as well as Pandora for music and ambiance. We provide many extras for our guests, such as a printer to print out itineraries and boarding passes, cellphone chargers, reverse osmosis drinking water, locally made artisan soaps, shampoo, coffee from the region and much more. The gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances and is well equipped for cooking lavish meals and baking treats in the convection oven. Washer and dryer is also provided.
The downstairs bedroom has natural latex mattresses so you can enjoy a good night rest in eery silence. If you're from the big city, it will take some getting used to.
During the winter, cuddle up around the automatic pellet stove in the living room, which provides radiant warmth with a cozy fire (sufficient supply of pellets is provided for your entire stay), and watch the snowy landscapes outside.
During the summer, open up the double doors and blur the lines between inside and outside, as you watch the pink cliffs light up during majestic sunsets, and animals and birds using the river while you have dinners on the wraparound decks. Or watch horses or cows grazing during afternoon tea on the outdoor rocking chairs.
Once you are well rested, you will be ready to take advantage of all the sights to see. The following Parks / Monuments can each be seen within a half or full day trip from the retreat:
- Bryce Canyon National Park
- Red Canyon
- Zion National Park
- Cedar Breaks National Monument (Close in the winter)
- Duck Creek
- Grand Staircase Escalante
- Grand Canyon (North Rim)
- Lake Powell National Recreation Area, and its majestic sandstone cliffs
- Pink Coral Sand Dunes State Park
- Buckskin Gulch Slot Canyon (longest one in the US)
- The Wave (requires permit from BLM)
- Best Friends animal sanctuary (free tours)
- Brian Head Ski Resort (during the winter season)
- Horseback riding (available in Bryce Canyon)
- ATV rentals (summer) and snowmobile rentals (winter)
Whether you are looking to explore the natural wonders of the area (the Retreat is located between 2 of the most visited National Parks in the country), whether you're an animal lover (the neighbors on both sides have horses, the rancher's cows graze on the fields during summer, deer and birds like to bathe in the river, and we have the biggest animal shelter in the US is 45 minutes away) or whether you just want to have a romantic and cozy getaway in total privacy, the Retreat has it all.
