If you love rocks, color, texture, hiking and the wilds of canyon country, Capital Reef is one of the places to be and Notom B&B is absolutely the place to stay. The B&B is like coming home to a great family. We’ve always gotten to know the people we stay with, but Chad and Roma go the extra step, sitting down and enjoying their exceptional home cooked meals with you. They have long time family ties with this rugged land, are ex-teachers and are oh so knowledgeable making morning breakfasts hard to break away from. Conversation becomes as enticing as the landscape that draws you to the place. The rooms are spacious, the beds very comfortable, and the patio that wraps around three sides of the house affords sensuous views of this undulating country.History abounds in the books they leave in the rooms and the stories they have to tell. The first morning sunrise treated me to a grazing deer, a wild turkey, their buffalo, horse and a field full of cattle, who eyed me with suspicion as they put distance between us. We shared a supper with our hosts as well, which, like breakfast, was a real treat. These are people who love what they are doing and it reflects in what they have created.
My husband, an amature astronomer, can vouch highly for the star packed dark skies. The restaurants in Torrey are an amazing find in such an out of the way place. The food is unique and superb. The obvious tourist hikes of Capital Reef can not compare to the slot canyons and winding trails that surround the park, and in this Roma and Chad can direct you. If you are an artist, prepared to be dazzled as the world around you becomes your palette.
