This is a fresh, modern, well-designed base from which to explore the glories of the Escalante region. All the comforts of home - and then some - have been thoughtfully provided and are in excellent working order: sub-zero fridge, DW, gas grill, W/D, excellent shower facility, comfortable beds and furnishings, surprisingly good internet access for the remoteness of the location, very ample storage space. The owners are welcoming, a great source of useful tips about hikes and drives in the area, and remarkably unobtrusive despite living right next door. In a residential section of Escalante, but right on the edge of it, so the front views are directly into the southern national monument area and 50-Mile Bench, with the Milky Way stretching for aeons above. Ample space for two couples or a small family, but, as others have noted, beware the excellent shower facility will have to be shared, as there's only one.
