Other Things to Note
THERE IS NO GROCERY STORE IN TORREY. The nearest shopping is in Loa, Utah- 17 miles away. Come prepared with groceries or contact Danielle and arrange to have groceries or a locals welcome basket delivered in advance for a nominal fee.
Think ahead while making dinner plans. During the Spring and fall there is a high volume of tourists so make dinner reservations or expect to wait.
Torrey is located at 6,800 ft in elevation, so we don’t get the intense heat that other desert town experience. Summer time temperatures range from the mid 80's to low 90's , mostly in the 80's, during the day and mid 50's to mid 60's at night.
Winter temps are mostly in mid 30’s to lower 50’s with a few days in the 20’s. Snow doesn't stay long in Torrey but there is plenty of it on Boulder Mountain.
Torrey is a small town with population 350. It is spread out over a few miles on highway 24. The house is located just 6 minutes from Capitol Reef National Park. Plan to drive to most locations although it's a fun bike ride on a summer evening to dinner.
Home in the Heart of Utah sits in the HEART of Torrey Utah, just 10 minutes from Capitol Reef National Park. Enjoy the amenities of urban living with multiple coffee shops, restaurants, hiking and biking trails right out the front door. You will find this to be the perfect place to stay while exploring aspects of intentional travel. Contribute to the local sustainable tourism by visiting the Wild Rabbit Cafe, buy coffee from Shooke Coffee Roasters and stop for ice cream at Color Ridge Creamery and Farm literally right next door.
The heart of Utah boasts exceptional landscapes that vary from expansive red rock deserts to high altitude forests. Our neighbors are not just the people next door but the white rock people of Capitol Reef, the Pando tree people of Fish Lake. We honor and protect the vast canyon people of Grand Staircase National Monument and the lake people who live on Boulder Mountain. This is our home and we welcome your love and respect to your home and come find out (quoting Mister Rogers) 'Who are the people in your neighborhood?"
Torrey is a small town with population 350. It is spread out over a few miles on highway 24. The house is located just 10 minutes from Capitol Reef National Park. Plan to drive to most locations although it's a fun bike ride on a summer evening to dinner. There is no public transportation in the area due to the limited infrastructure in our community. Last year we expanded the road shoulder to accommodate biking and walking all the way to the park.
Sat nav systems get overly creative when guiding you to the house. DO NOT USE the address in GPS.
If using GPS, Google or Apple maps, enter the Wild Rabbit Cafe into the GPS and access the house on either side via one of the driveways. You can park in the parking lot directly north (or behind) the cafe next to the large two-story house.
