About Lisa Hartman
My husband, Bob, and I moved to Escalante in 2015 after retiring from our jobs in Southern California. We both love the outdoors and in particular Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. It took Bob a year and a half to renovate the cabin, and he did so with thoughtful consideration to the history of this place and attention to detail. I created the interior embellishments. We both love a simple and quiet life. We raise puppies for Canine Companions for Independence to become service dogs for others. Not all puppies graduate with honors to become service animals. We have a waggy-tailed, "change of career" dog named Cabernet. She will not bother you unless you want a friendly kiss or a stick toss.

old bailey place
our second stay w bob and lisa at the old bailey place was even better than the first. some improvements were made to the cabin and bob's bread was just as good as the last time. we love it here.
This place was awesome. The cabin was comfortable and well furnished. Bob & Lisa greeted us shortly after arrival, showing us the cabin and all it had to offer. There was also a basket on the table with several treats, snacks and fresh bread, which we enjoyed throughout our stay. Bob also gave us some recommendations on where to explore. The area around Escalante was absolutely incredible and we look forward to returning and seeing more.
Charming cabin for two over Thanksgiving weekend
We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend at the charming Old Bailey Place, a cozy cabin for two. Kudos to Lisa & Bob for being great hosts and the great decore in cabin that evokes a strong sense of history and place. Bob's fresh baked baguettes were delectable. The cabin was meticulous and well equipped. Enjoyed the birdlife attracted by the feeders, including numerous Pinyon Jays. For a remote town, dining options were great provided you made reservations for the holiday, which we did. Hell's Backbone Grill & the Devil's Garden Grill were both notable. The area around Escalante has a plethora of hiking opportunities. Thumbs up on Lower Calf Creek, Devil's Garden and the Petrified Forest State Park. Good birdwatching in the reservoir by the state park with numerous species of ducks in migration. In summary, we would highly recommend a stay and look forward to returning ourselves.
A great find!
We especially enjoyed our stay in Escalante because of this very comfortable, well equipped and peaceful place. After coming in from a day's hike it was wonderful to take either a relaxing bath (with bath salts provided) or a luxurious shower outside and then sit out on the porch watching the many birds at the bird feeders and the occasional farm machine roll by. (We were there during hay baling season.) There was a bookshelf full of books and hiking info available to read and we were able to cook all of our meals in the convenient kitchen. To top off our stay, Bob provided delicious hot loaves of bread and both Bob and Lisa gave us many good tips of where to hike, shop for groceries along with local news and ideas for interesting drives in the area. My husband and I highly recommend this historic cabin for couples coming to hike in or enjoy the Escalante Staircase National Monument and other areas in the Grand Circle. Jane and Ned
We loved our stay at The Old Bailey Place! Lisa and Bob were extremely friendly and helpful. Bob's fresh baked bread is delicious - we enjoyed it with our breakfast every morning. The little house was the perfect size for the two of us and we especially enjoyed using the outdoor shower. It also has a great location in the little town of Escalante and not too far from hiking in the Grand Staircase. Oh, and it was wonderful getting to watch all the hummingbirds and other birds while relaxing on the front porch. Thank you!!
A fantastic place to stay, comfortable and charming!
Lisa and Bob were fantastic hosts. They have created the perfect get away for two. The history of the home is evident, but it lacks nothing as far as amenities... every detail has been thought about to make your stay comfortable, from home made bath salts, to freshly baked bread (and in my case a birthday cake) A great place to start and end your busy day of hiking and exploring the beautiful landscape. Catching the sunrise from the Adirondack chairs on the front porch is a must! I will be coming back for sure!
