We took a chance, booking the Sunlit Oasis when we visited Capitol Reef National Park. It seemed a bit lonely. And that is both its advantage and disadvantage. The inn is close to Capitol Reef, and that was the most important thing we were looking for. The awesome landscapes of the park extend beyond its borders, and you could appreciate them from the balcony at the inn. The night sky there is also spectacular, since the area is so dark (no light pollution). The Milky Way is visible in all its glory. On the negative side, you are 30 minutes from restaurants if you are leaving from the inn. The hosts, a young family, are welcoming and pleasant. Breakfast was generous and varied. We enjoyed the farm - we fed apples to the resident horses and burro, and enjoyed watching the kittens sunning themselves and playing with the more friendly momma cat. The rooms are large and comfortable. Bathrooms have been updated. The weather while we were there was a bit too cold, but in warmer times the inn's balcony looks like a truly pleasant place to relax after a day of hiking at the park. In short, a very pleasant and welcoming place.…
My husband and I spent one night here. Beautiful home in a beautiful setting. Quiet and restful. Wish we had had more time to enjoy the scenery. Kenley prepared a wonderful breakfast and enjoyed meeting his youngest daughter.
Loved the peace and quiet (and stars!) we experienced here. It's off the beaten path - about a 30 minute drive to the nearest town of Torrey. We had the Robber's Roost room and it was great. A quite large, clean 2nd floor corner room with access to a large shared balcony. The breakfast is fairly basic - eggs, bacon, hash browns and waffles/pancakes/muffins - but there's nothing wrong with basic. There's a guest laundry which was a welcome bonus since hiking at Capitol Reef for 2 days leaves you VERY dusty! The only minor pitfall was the lack of a hair dryer in every room. However, the owner pointed me to a spare one in the laundry room that I was able to use.
Gorgeous home decorated with antiques, large bedroom and bathroom and everything spotless - what more could you ask for?! Breakfast is served at 0800 and all guests share the dining room table. This was a full breakfast with eggs, bacon, pancakes, muffins, hash browns and OJ. It was great to be able to use the Keurig coffee maker to have fresh hot coffee and the type you'd prefer. Our only negative was how far away it was from Torrey, but we knew that when booking. We turned it into a positive, when we stopped on the drive back after dinner to ogle the awesome night sky and Milky Way displayed straight overhead.
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Sunlit Oasis .The room was nice and cool when we arrived and everything clean and tidy.The room had posters and memorabilia about the area which was very interesting.We stayed in Robbers Roost which was themed about Butch Cassidy.The house was filled with antiques and we had access to the living room,kitchen and dinning room.The house has a very homey feeling and the host was attentive to our needs yet we had all the privacy we wanted.The room had filtered water and a jetted tub in the bathroom.The breakfast was excellent and plenty of it.There is a covered deck and chairs to sit in facing the sunrise.After a day in the heat at Capital Reef it was a Oasis to come back to.Wild turkeys and deer were outside and added to the ambiance.
