These are clean, spacious cabins in what seems like the middle of nowhere...just what we wanted for viewing the Perseid Meteor Shower. These are some of the darkest skies we have ever seen. We loved being able to see the Milky Way, because in Cleveland, it's a rarity. Our cabin was quite large, with 2 fairly comfortable queen beds. There is a small kitchen with a stovetop and refrigerator. We loved this, as we prefer to cook our own meals. The nearest regular grocery store is in Loa, which is a bit of a drive, but to us, all part of getting to know our surroundings. A small table with 2 chairs is available for dining, or you can use your picnic table outside. Another small table with 2 chairs is available on the back porch. There's plenty of hot water and good water pressure in the bathroom. There are stunning views from the cabin, and Capitol Reef National Park, with all of it's amazing scenery is a very short drive away. The city of Torrey is a 5 minute drive up the road, and appeared to have quite a few restaurants and a few shops. The owner of Pine Shadows, Debbie, let us know she was on site if we needed anything, but was not intrusive. There is information about the area available in her office. Movies are available as well. This is the perfect place to relax after spending long days at Capitol Reef. We would stay here again, and recommend it to anyone.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Every cabin has a front and back entrance, and a covered porch for viewing the rock formations, the Velvet Ridge, cedars, and pinion pines. As the early morning sun changes its position in the sky, one can sit and watch these sandstone mountains turn bright orange, then coral, and finally almost a pure white. The spacious cabins have two queen beds and a television with VCR. Bathrooms have bathtub with shower. A kitchen affords each guest with the option of cooking in or eating out. The kitchen includes sink, range, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, glass table with chairs, and cooking and eating utensils. ... more less
