We believe that everyone deserves a place where they can relax, learn and grow, and enjoy time with family. That is where we come in. Against the beautiful backdrops of Capitol Reef National Park and the Henry mountains, we feel that happens. Come and see for yourself.

We really enjoyed our time at the sunlit Oasis. It is on the south end of the park so it is a bit of a drive. But it is very worth it. You can see the stars very clearly. Also the breakfast was great pancakes, amazing hash browns, bacon, juice, milk and coffee. It is also very family-friendly. The suite we stayed in had a huge tub and my kids loved that.

From the minute we checked in, Kenley & his precious children made us feel like family. My brother, niece & I spent one night here en route to Bryce Canyon. While the outside is very rustic..complete with chickens, donkeys,a horse, wild turkeys & mule dears..the inside was clean& cozy. We had 2 different rooms & both were comfortable. The house is the perfect place to stay if planning a visit to Capitol Reef as it is literally a few miles from the entrance to the park. We headed into Torrey to grab dinner but were so thankful that Kenley cooked up a delicious breakfast before we headed out. We enjoyed the cozy dining setting & being able to interact with the other guests & Kenley & his family. My niece LOVED playing with his kids..they fed the animals & jumped on the trampoline together. Wi-Fi worked well which was a plus. Another perk is that a washer & dryer is available to use for FREE! Any time we asked Kenley a question about his place, he reiterated that we were allowed to treat his home like it was ours..his kitchen was available for use if needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!

Sunlit Oasis is a lovely B&B located 40 minutes from any town, Torrey being the closest. It’s 20 minutes to Capitol Reef and the road to the B&B is on the east side of the park. Pros: beautiful location, gorgeous sunrises, adorable children running around waving and saying hello, nicely sized and appointed rooms, friendly proprietor who makes the main floor open to guests who want to watch TV or use the kitchen, and close enough to the park. Cons: It really is remote and takes 40 minutes each way to go to dinner. Breakfast was very basic— pancakes, or french toast or eggs and bacon. The room was also a bit dusty which concerned me some in the time of COVID. Best meal we’ve had in Southern Utah was 90 minutes away in Boulder called Hell’s Backbone. Worth the trek!

Response from Kenley Steck, Owner at Sunlit Oasis
Responded Oct 13, 2020
Thank you for staying with us and for writing a review. I am glad to hear the children are a plus; sometime I wonder how they come across to guests. I wanted to address the issues you brought up. I am appreciative of the feedback, but I would like a little more information about the breakfast. What would you like to have that would make it more than a "very basic" breakfast? I would like to provide the best I can, but without knowing what goes above and beyond, I can't really make improvements. Would you be willing to contact me to discuss how this could be done better? You can call me at 435-456-9153. Also, with the dust, I want to apologize. I and my children clean the rooms, and maybe we missed it that day. To let you know, we didn't have to change any cleaning for Covid as we have been following the precautions long before Covid-19 came around. Not as an excuse, but maybe by way of explanation, we do live in a dusty area. The dust could have come in after cleaning but before your stay, especially if it was more than a day between cleaning and your stay. Again, I apologize for the seeming lack of cleaning. I assure you, we take our cleaning of rooms seriously.

This b and b is truly away from it all, and the vistas of sky/clouds, stars, mountains and desert were sublime. Our room was large (used our yoga mats), had an outdoor deck, great jacuzzi tub and comfy king bed. We loved seeing how the family who runs it had such cooperative and unobtrusive children helping out --- there was a great spirit of happiness there. The owner went above and beyond getting answers to some questions about hikes and things we wanted to do, and was perfectly agreeable to providing the vegan breakfast items we requested. All in all, a real winner!

We visited in February so it was cold outside but you wouldn’t be able to tell that from inside. It was cozy and clean, the family who run it very friendly and kind. Chickens and kittens watch you have breakfast lol. We even got to see a calf which was just born. Very secluded and well off the beaten path (also no grocery store nearby that was open, being off season). Would totally stay again, and highly recommend! (Pics of sunrise view, which was gorgeous)
