Beautiful cabin in great location

This cabin is very well located if you are exploring Capitol Reef NP. Instead of staying at a boring motel in Torrey, choose this cabin for its character, seclusion, and charm. It is very well stocked with all housekeeping necessities, including a beautiful kitchen and very stylish bathrooms. Everything was very clean and in working order, and there is a caretaker couple immediately nearby who respond very quickly if you have any needs. It's a really comfortable house with a beautiful porch, so you can sit out there and relax.
Our family of 5 was well accommodated, but that's about the limit. The "nice" bedroom is upstairs, there's another down in the basement, while one person slept on the sofa in the living room; and yes, the house does have 3 full levels, so there's a lot of stairs to climb. The house also has no internal doors, so if sound privacy is an issue for you, do consider that.
One great feature is the balcony from the upstairs bedroom which can serve as an excellent astronomical observing platform. You have a great view of the entire western half of the sky, and being upstairs, there is no obstruction from trees. The night skies are quite dark and make for some excellent observing.
Overall we were very satisfied with this property, and would willingly stay there again, although it's more ideally suited for 4 people than 5.
