40 ACRE RETREAT IN THE ESCALANTE CANYON!

Bryce Canyon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Cross Creek Ranch is part of a 160 acre private inholding in the heart of The Grand Staircase/ Escalante National Monument, located halfway between Bryce Canyon National Park and Capitol Reef National Park. Entered where Scenic Highway 12 ('the golden loop') crosses the Escalante River, it is the hiking trailhead to the renowned Escalante Canyons. Our retreat is the last 40 acres downriver before 75 miles of wilderness area, running into Lake Powell.

This incredibly private get away is a two bedroom, 2 bath river front home. The home has views on all sides of your own private canyon, meadows, cliffs and river. The 1300 sq foot architect crafted home sits in a lush riparian oasis surrounded by 600 ft sandstone cliffs. Hike from your door to first class scenic wonders.

The 16 X 28 foot great room has 15 ft cathedral ceilings, with a massive stone fireplace, 2 sleeping lofts with clerestory windows, and a 16 foot built in banco/window seat. The fully equipped cherry and stainless kitchen, with concrete countertops, has magnificent view windows. The master suite with king bed has a glass wall view of a 200 foot slickrock pouroff, and glass mosaic tile shower. Also, 2nd bedroom with queen, 8 X 30 foot deck; all tucked inbetween large cottonwood shade trees. No TV available.

Doug and Bev Howland- We live in Sedona,Az. Doug is a 35 year designer/builder who built most of the house over a 7 year period, commuting 6 hrs each way. Bev has started and run a health food store, a charter elementary school, and manages the property. We have 2 daughters on the east coast. We like to hike, horseback ride, ski, white water raft, and travel.

The Owner purchased this house in 1993

We like to hike, horseback ride, ski, white water raft, and travel. It is becoming nearly impossible to find secluded but accessible acreage with water in the southwest, and it's beautiful too. We don't get to spend enough time here ourselves, and felt like it's such a great place that we should share it.

Many amazing natural wonders within an hour's drive (see above). Look for deer and wild turkey in the meadow in the mornings and evenings. Lie in the hammock and watch the cloud shadows change over the canyon walls. Head down or up canyon into rugged wilderness, and return to a hot outdoor shower or indoor tub, a bbq and and a glass of wine on the deck.

This house is a stunning getaway bungalow. The setting is absolutely spectacular, and the house has everything you could want. The craftsman styling, and architectural details make it feel very special. Loved the concrete counter tops, fireplace, cool sleeping lofts, huge deck, and much more. We loved it. You will too.

Impressive-the location, the design, the finish!

We came and stayed at Calf Creek Ranch for four nights during out two week holiday (sorry, vacation), and it was an absolute highlight-what an inspiring place. And we had the very great pleasure of meeting Doug, building your new house-what an inspiring person. Everything about your home is impressive-the location, the design, the finish, and just the fact that it's here. How did you get all that building material over the ford?!
And this is such a beautifiul area-we saw Sunset Arch at sunset, and visited Devil's Garden on a cloudy day. The hike to Zebra slot & Tunnel slot was excellent, but both were unfortunately full of water. Lower Calf Creek Falls was just breath taking - what a place.
We hope to return. With very best wishes,

The wild turkeys were an added bonus!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! As part of a book group, I have had a special restful, fun time living in your beautiful home. I shall long remember the serenity, the beauty of nature and how you "tucked" this lovely home into the trees as though it "grew" with them. (The wild turkeys were an added bonus)
