The Navajo call it the Land of the Sleeping Rainbow - a strange, beautiful landscape of multi-hued rock layers. Capitol Reef lies in the heart of Utah's canyon country halfway between Canyonlands and Bryce Canyon National parks. Here in this rugged natural wonderland are 2,200 private acres of pristine wilderness called Red River Ranch. Tucked away in the shadows of towering rock cliffs you'll find the Lodge, named one of the West's 25 Grandest Lodges. The Lodge has 15 rustic rooms in the authentic tradition of the 18th Century Wild West. Enjoy fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, guest pastures , hunting and more...

The lodge couldn't be better. The setting is gorgeous and the rooms very comfortable, with lots of charm. I loved my horse-themed Rodeo Room. The common room, with its big fireplace, books and magazines, is so nice. I used their hiking guidebooks to plan my days. This is so much nicer than the generic looking motels in and around Torrey. I stayed 2 nights and would loved to have stayed more. I had 4G service and there is wifi, too. The service is top notch. The manager anticipates ways to make your stay better that you didn't even think of, which is the hallmark of great service. At checkout, after hearing I was heading back to the park then to the airport, she suggested I come back to the lodge to change and freshen up rather than try to do this in the airport bathroom. When she saw me eating my take out with plastic utensils in front of the fire, she brought me real silverware and then stored my leftovers in the fridge (and warmed them up for me the next day!). As for food, breakfast was good, and less than 5 minutes east is a bbq place run by a Culinary Institute grad--they have vegetarian options, and portions are huge. The other highlight was the Capitol Burger truck (they have veg options too) run by a chef who used to work in Michelin starred restaurants. Torrey is only about 5-7 minutes away. The lodge has a binder of restaurant menus. I enjoyed staying on the first floor, as it was nice to be able to walk out my patio doors to look at stars or the scenery. Some have noted there is some noise. In general I don't think there is more noise than at your average motel, where you might have kids running up and down the halls or loud conversations outside your room door. I had the Rodeo Room, closest to the front door and common room, and in general the sounds of people coming and going were not bothersome. If there is a group hanging out in the lobby, you probably will hear them to some degree (or at least hear the men who don't modulate their voices), but luckily there seemed to be a 10 pm quiet time enforced. And I think this would likely only be something you'd hear from the Rodeo or Saratoga Rooms. The other 2 ground floor rooms were set further back from the common room. In general most people were respectful and quiet. The walls between rooms must have been thick--I never heard my neighbors.

I doubt there is any better lodging around Capitol Reef. You are WAY out here. Hardly any restaurants open in April. Our family of four stayed in the Safari Room - plenty of room for all of our suitcases, my husband could work at the desk, the kids have space to read and hang out. Good oatmeal and egg breakfast. Friendly staff. Super cool vibe to the lodge and great views from all the rooms. Didn't use the hottub but it's in a great spot. Make sure to bring snacks and beverages - they offer nothing in the afternoon and evening, and we were too lazy to head back into town to get stuff. We skipped dinner. Would stay again!

This place has absolute charm and an idyllic setting that feels like walking through a feature in a travel magazine. We really enjoyed the large great room with its roaring fire, our well-appointed room, the ridiculously comfortable bed, and the homey restaurant for breakfast. We even got to pet Bevis the buffalo from the field out front. Our one-night stay was too short.

What a wonderful and beautiful setting to spend a few days! Our room was on the first floor which we liked for access to outside Outside patio with a view of the fruit orchid and seating for us to enjoy. Rooms where well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast is offered for additional charge. Food was excellent. Would definitely stay here again.

This was such a magical spot. The lodge is hidden in a grove of trees near the cliffs. Buffalo are in front. The lodge is filled with native pottery and textiles. Everything was so comfortable. The owner was incredible, making sure that we had what we needed. She gave excellent restaurant recommendations. And the breakfast at the lodge was delicious. We will be back

This place is a gem! A rustic lodge in the middle of nowhere. Friendly front desk staff, quaint, unique rooms, bison grazing on the front lawn in the morning and a nice little onsite breakfast restaurant. The lobby is so rustic and the decor is amazing! There are lots of local artisan products for sale in the lodge. We would definitely stay here again!

This giant lodge in a secluded setting is like a Western dream. It is shielded from the distant highway by a stately grove of tall trees that stand like sentinels along the long driveway. Inside the Lodge at Red River Ranch is a two-story great room loaded with Western art, including a huge Frederick Remington statue, plus looming mounted heads of Western game animals. That the ranch has its own herd of bison roaming its lush acreage seems truly fitting as well as thrilling. Our first-floor queen room (Rodeo) was a symphony of cowboy reds, curtains, a hand-sewn quilt, cowboy décor of many kinds, including a Lone Ranger guitar ("Hi-Ho, Silver!). There was a full fieldstone fireplace although no fires were allowed, unfortunately. One of the rooms nicest features almost went undiscovered -- a small button that provided soothing background sounds of assorted symphonic music. Perhaps because of all the decorations in such a small space, this room felt a bit crowded and cramped, as did the bathroom. Noise also intruded from the room above. But the French doors opened to a semi-private patio with a heavy metal table and chairs that provided a serene setting for our outdoor to-go dinner from Torrey (no dinner service was offered). Breakfast was indeed offered at the Lodge and it proved to be tasty, but harried since all the cooking and service were provided by the owner and her daughters because the kitchen staff had failed to show up (part of what seemed an unfortunate air of disorganization that lessened the experience of staying here). I had fully expected to give the Lodge at Red River Ranch a five-star rating but, upon reflection, switched it to four because of our cramped room, various noted shortcomings and the staff's failure to wear masks and observe other reasonable Covid protocols. Still, this remains a special Western place that has to be seen to be believed.

We absolutely loved our stay at The Lodge at Red River Ranch. It is truly a very special place and our stay there was the highlight of our time visiting the National Parks. It is like stepping back in time when you enter the inn. Furnished with a western flair and accentuated with antiques you truly feel as though you are visiting a western ranch. There are even Bison grazing in the field as you enter the sweeping driveway! Our room was so comfortable with a fireplace, private patio, and stunning views of the red rock cliffs. The bed was very comfortable and the quiet surroundings provided a perfect nights sleep. The outdoor hot tub is surrounded by amazing views too. Breakfast in the dining room was delicious and fueled us for a day of hiking. The location is perfect, close to Capital Reef National Park but quiet and serene. The owners could not have been more helpful with dinner reservations as well. We highly recommend staying here if you have the chance. It is not to be missed!

This lodge is good. But the reviews set me up to have much higher expectations so I’m just adding a little balance for people who are looking for a more frank review. The setting is stunning, I will give you that. But the beds aren’t great and the noise issue really is a problem. You can hear the conversations of the people next to you without even trying. If you are in a room on the main level, you hear every footstep above. King deluxe room was small (so go luxury if you want a place to sit after a long hiking day). It’s quaint and has charm. For $200 it was fine—which means average to me—certainly not excellent. And PS there are no covid guidelines in place or being followed. No masks even by the employees. So if that matters to you, be aware.
