We expected a decent house to use for a base for touring all the national parks/monuments in Utah. What we got was absolutely incredible - beautiful open spaces, architectural detailing, comfortable furniture, amazingly upscale appliances. It was also very clean and well-maintained. And exceptionally quiet, just at the edge of town.
The owners were on vacation when we arrived but had arranged coverage for questions, etc. When the owners got home, they quickly touched base to see if we had any questions/concerns. As others have noted, Ricki was a fount of knowledge about what to see and do.
My one disappointment was not being able to cook more in the gourmet kitchen and eat on the lovely patio. While the cabinets were amply supplied with dishes, condiments, pots and pans, a well-stocked grocery store was many miles away.
