Interaction with guests
We very much enjoy meeting our guests when we are in town, and we do our best to meet each guest at the apartment soon after you arrive. If our schedules work out, we'd love to sit in the yard or house with you and chat. However, we'll also be happy to give you whatever privacy you want. We do travel at times and then are not available on site. Feel free to knock on our door, call, or message us any time with questions. We are both nature enthusiasts and love sharing the beauty of the area with guests. Joy is a licensed Psychologist in Utah with a private practice in Torrey and may be available for a counseling session, an Opening to Nature and Yourself Session, a nature walk around Torrey, and/or a bird watching session for a fee.

Amazing location. We booked stayed during the Fort Desolation Fest. The hosts are fun, friendly and gracious. We got lots of recommendations from Joy and Bernie on where to eat, what to do. It is a wonderful apartment-like space with private bath, kitchen and great space to chill. Lovely patio. Lots of local information available. We loved our stay and will be back next year.

Excellent location just minutes from Capitol Reef. The apartment had everything we needed, wish we could have stayed longer. The hosts were so welcoming and friendly. Couple of good restaurants we could walk to and great facilities to ‘eat in’, if that’s your bag. We were able to enjoy a gin and tonic in the garden as the sun went down and even saw some lovely deer who came to gorge on the fruit trees in the orchard. Would highly recommend this rental.

Joy & Bernie were great hosts, very friendly and attentive to anything we needed. Both were fun to talk to and hear their story as well as their favorite places and learn things about the area. Their place is very comfy, easy access and just feet off the main road. We walked 'into town' the see a few of the little shops. The reviews we had read of the bathroom being small are accurate but it serves its purpose just fine. We visited in September and had to use the fan they provided the first night but then the temps dropped (50's/60's and rain) and it was plenty warm without a fire.

Exactly as advertised, the hosts were awesome and the location perfect. We loved that we could cook in the little kitchen or walk a few blocks into town for a delicious meal. The town of Torrey is charming, and Capitol Reef is nearby for hiking.

Wir haben zwei Nächte bei Joy und Bernie verbracht und fühlten uns die gesamte Zeit über pudelwohl. Das Holzcottage ist supergemütlich eingerichtet, Bett und Couch sind sehr bequem. Dank der vielen Fenster ist die im Erdgeschoss gelegene Ferienwohnung immer schön hell. In der Küche finden sich sämtliche Utensilien, die man braucht. Die verschiedenen Müsli-/Cornflakessorten zum Frühstück ließen bei uns keine Wünsche offen. Das Badezimmer ist zwar recht klein, punktet aber mit einer kräftig-heißen Dusche und den tollen Shampoos, Conditionern und Seifen, die für die Gäste inklusive sind. Das Highlight war für uns jedoch ein gemeinsamer Grillabend mit Joy und Bernie am Lagerfeuer draußen im Garten. Wir quatschten über Gott und die Welt und fühlten uns wieder einmal darin bestätigt, dass es keine bessere Art zu reisen gibt als Airbnb. Fazit: Absolute Empfehlung

We stayed here for a week exploring Capitol Reef and the surroundings and would have loved to stay longer. Joy and Bernie were very warm and welcoming and had lots of suggestions for lovely out-of-the-way places to hike and good eateries. Their comfortable apartment is plenty big for two and has a small well-equipped kitchen and a tiny bathroom. We enjoyed the wood burning stove during chilly spring nights and our evening walks around Torrey's quiet streets.

Joy and Bernie made us feel welcome and included, yet I felt I had privacy in our cabin and was not intruding into their lives, just the right amount of inclusion and space to ourselves. It was the off season and many places in town were closed, but we enjoyed the quiet and adventures and opted to do a very informative and gorgeous guided hike with Joy which she tailored for our son's limited range. It was wonderful to have a local showing us special spots that are not on the trail map. The place was big enough for my husband, myself and our 12 year old son. We ventured to chop some firewood for the oven, being city folks, that is exciting! I would go back any time!

Just on the edge of Torrey, Utah. Population 182. Nice quiet location, off the main road. You have your own parking spot and private entrance to this cozy little apartment attached to the owners main house. It has a cabin feel to it. Very tastefully decorated with a small kitchen and private bathroom. The owners are both very nice and took time to greet us when we arrived. For us, it was just perfect. You are about 10 minutes from the park, and there are plenty of restaurants close by. We had a little mule deer visit us every day. I would gladly stay here again, should my travels bring be back to Torrey.

About the neighborhood
The apartment is set down in the valley of Torrey, between Boulder Mountain to the south and Thousand Lakes Mountain to the north. North views are of the redrock cliffs and knolls of Torrey, with Thousand Lakes Mountain above. Torrey's elevation is 6837 ft. above sea level. Torrey has a beautiful combination of redrock cliffs, knolls, Pinyon/Juniper forest, and sagebrush/rabbitbrush desert scrub. The area has been referred to as high desert and/or cold desert, due to it's elevation and cool temperatures fall through spring. The apartment sits opposite an open lot with a small wooded area that deer often bed down in at night, a meadow, and a small wetland area, based on the irrigation ditch that runs through town. This open natural land so close to the apartment brings wildli...
