About the property

The Space

This is a 2 level A-frame located 1.5 miles from Bryce Resort.

There is something to do in every season! We have compiled a list of things to do! Just ask us for it! Just read our reviews! I hope I covered everything below. Find us on facebook “Bryce Bungalow” for vacation discounts, up to date events, videos and more!

Everything is almost brand new... It is clean & cozy.. We’ve added lots of extra amenities to the house such as: toys, books, dvd's, vhs, games, PS3 and more! Everyone will have something to stay buys!

The living room has a woodburning stove, TV with Roku, dvd, vhs player. No cable, sorry. There are TONS (approx 200-300 movies) for your pleasure. The loft has a flat screen with a PS3 where you can stream from Amazon & Netflix, watch movies, or browse the internet.

The kitchen is stocked for the basics.. Coffee pot, keurig, crockpot, pancake griddle, toaster, microwave, oven and dishes. We’ve just added an ice cream maker! Bring the ingredients!

The deck has a hammock, picnic table and propane grill. We generally have the $3 propane tanks handy for your use. If not, the local store sells them.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and a few books (take a book, leave a book system.)

The spare bedroom has a full bed.

The loft has two twin beds, a 32" TV with PS3, games and toys, books for the younger ones

All new bed linens and pillows in 2015. We have a high chair and a pack n play (like new)

In the winter months, there is heat in every room. In the warmer months there is air conditioning in the loft and a standing unit in the main area. There is an extra fan or two. The house also has a high chair, ironing board, and hair dryer for your use.

Outside there is a firepit! We have 4 camp chairs in the main closet. Bring your own wood. The fire pit must be used in the driveway as the deck is too narrow and too close to the very wooden house.

You will love it here. It's a gentle escape from the 9-to-5 life. Peace and quiet are included. Light pours into the house. Its relaxing and soothing. You will feel comfortable and at home immediately. Everything is clean and well kept.. I put in a lot of heart, sweat and tears getting this house ready for rent. There is a binder in the house which includes a local map and tons of ideas for things to do! Or ask us for it before you go!

Also, we have a few babysitter contacts! In case you want to go to skiing without the kids, to the lake, local vineyard and more! (Use at your own risk). Ask us for their info when you book!

The house will have one roll of toilet paper, one roll of paper towels, some trash bags, dish soap to get your started, but you may need to buy more. We also should have a backup propane tank for the grill.

We suggest you also bring:

a) Sheets and towels for all. (queen, full and two twins.) Don’t forget a hand towel

b) Toiletries

c) Paper plates, napkins & utensils if you dont want to do too many dishes.

d) Ice... but there are ice trays.

e) Hand soap

Driveway suits 4 cars

Guest Access

Guests have access to the entire house minus one owner’s closet which is locked.

Interaction with Guests

I live about 1.5 hours away but always available to talk or chat. I can be there in a jiffy in case of emergency.

The Neighborhood

Bryce is a 4 season resort. There are homes around, but rarely occupied. I have never seen anyone occupy the house closest to mine. The street is SO quiet and peaceful and awesome to take walks on in the morning or at sun down!

Getting Around

You will need a car to get around. Consider this a rural area.

Other Things to Note

The house does not have a dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer. The heat is baseboard heating (one thermostat per room.) There is no cable TV, but you can stream through Roku. There is a woodburning stove in case the power or heat goes out. There are 2 AC units that can be used. The driveway is akward at first, but one of the lesser steep ones on the mountain! In the winter you will NEED to drive a 4WD or AWD to get up the mountain or driveway if snow has fallen. You will need to bring some basics: linens (towels /sheets), dish soap, and hand towels.

Cute, Clean, Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This little place has everything you need for a little getaway. The grownups enjoyed watching movies while the kids played with the toys upstairs during the rainy first day of our trip. When the sun came out we were close to Luray, many farms with fresh foods, breweries, and many other attractions.

The house was very clean, and decorated in a cute style. We enjoyed making pancakes for the group on the big griddle, we grilled hamburgers out on the big wrap-around deck, and roasting marshmallows on the fire-pit. We probably over packed- plenty was provided by either the earlier guests or the owner, and the grocery store is well stocked and not a terribly long drive.
