“Pleasant surprise!”

Southwestern Retreat was the perfect accommodation for three couples travelling and hiking together. I read the reviews before booking and had no idea what to expect. Three bedrooms, large living room and kitchen, clean and very comfortable - centrally located, Southwestern Retreat exceeded our expectations! It was great to have breakfast together, pack lunches to take hiking and have dinner with shoes off and a comfortable place to sit and talk in a nice living room after a day on the trails. We really enjoyed our trip to Escalante - I would definately stay at Southwestern Retreat again - the views from the porch are beautiful - day or night. Make sure you have at least one dinner at Escalante Outfitters in town - excellent!

“Plain House, Awesome View, Would stay again!”
Reviewed 22 July 2011 for a stay in August 2010

We really loved this house. When we first drove up it looked like it would be a dump. The yard was overgrown with weeds, a gutter was laying on the front porch.... However, inside was a very basic, simply furnished house, with the walls painted with the kind of rock formations along the horizon in this area. Yes, the house could stand to have the furniture updated (reminded me of how my college apartment was furnished-with hand-me-down furniture), but it was kept nice and clean. The major perk for the kids was that there was a huge drum with drumsticks that the kids enjoyed playing & pretending to be indians. The master bedroom had a very very very comfortable bed. The showers/bathtubs in the bathrooms were very old, and best for a short person to take a shower. The view from the front porch was the best, and it was so peaceful to sit there each night on the porch looking out at miles of pretty uninhabited landscape. The kitchen was very well stocked, with plenty of pots and pans, even aluminum foil, baggies for sandwiches, spices..... This, is definately not an upscale house, but I would highly recommend staying here especially if you have kids. I would love to come back again and stay longer.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes, the front porch is a favorite of our guests and I am glad you enjoyed it, too.
We hope you will return one day to do more exploring in this amazing Escalante area.
