Torrey is a most pleasantly surprising town. About halfway between Moab and Bryce Canyon, where Routes 24 and 12 intersect, it is in a beautiful valley and has an official information center, several art galleries, excellent cafes and an historic bookstore. Torrey also has its old schoolhouse, where Butch Cassidy came to town socials, meticulously restored and wonderfully renovated to a spacious, comfortable and meticulously clean B&B. Ty, the owner, gave us a friendly welcome and overview of where to find whatever we might need, before excusing herself for family commitments. Diane, who served an excellent breakfast, generously and expertly filled us in on the history of the building, the town and the area. Our room, on the third floor, had impressive views west and south, a wonderful vibrating chair, interesting local tribal decor, and all the comforts of home. Some 'not to miss' places in southern Utah are Route 12, Torrey and this Schoolhouse B&B.
