We chose to stay at Pine Shadow Cabins for its proximity to the national park and Dixie National Forest – and for the kitchenette. (We stayed for 12 days, off-season, when most of the local restaurants are closed). Beyond the kitchenette, the cabin was spacious with everything we needed – individual heat/AC, TV, WiFi, and access to a great library of hiking guides. The cabins are extremely affordable and very clean with comfortable beds. The view from the rear of the cabin was really lovely and the location made for a very peaceful stay. Each cabin has its own outdoor space with a barbecue grill provided, one which we used to make ourselves a fire on one of the nights to watch the sunset and the moonrise – just lovely. The entrance to Capitol Reef National Park was a short drive (15 minutes) as was access to a decent supermarket (Loa) and a liquor store (Bicknell). We did venture out for pizza one night in nearby Torrey and noticed a couple of other restaurants were also open, so there is some life in the area at that time of year. However, we were looking for peace, solitude, and excellent hiking in November and that is exactly what we found.
- 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
