L'espai
Our Log Home is rustic with all wood and/or rock interior. There are a few stairs to navigate coming in to the home and stairs going up to the loft bedroom and down to the basement bedroom, so the home and bathroom are not wheelchair accessible. There are 2 queen size beds, one in the loft, one in the downstairs bedroom and also a queen size futon if needed. There is only 1 Bathroom on the main floor which is small but functional with a step-in tub/shower and hand hold bars inside and outside the tub/shower. The open kitchen has an electric stove and oven, a toaster, and full sized refrigerator with freezer section. The kitchen is stocked with basic dishes needed to cook and eat, with spices, oatmeal and cold cereal for you to prepare if you choose. Bring your own milk. Coffee, tea, and fruit from our orchard (when in season) are available as well.

There is a wood burning stove with blower as well as central heating. There is also an electric heater in basement bedroom. Electric heater should be pulled away from wall when using. If using the wood burning stove remember to pull the flue out just a little to get it started and going well. Fire starting materials and wood will be available for your convenience. Please take precautions when starting and using a fire. If you need advice, please ask.

Our BnB Log Home is just across the street from a fringe wooded area, where deer often bed down at night. Our east window faces the woods and sometimes you can see deer coming and going to our orchard property or to other places in the neighborhood right from the dining window. The deer frequent all parts of the property, eating fruit from the orchard in season, alfalfa, and wild greens in the yard. The fruit orchard and the canopy of mature trees in Torrey bring in an abundance of birds for viewing.

You are welcome to help yourself to fruit that might be available during your stay.

Altres coses per tenir en compte
Torrey is a very quiet and peaceful town and easy to explore by walking or bike riding.

The home has no air conditioning. It is not needed in Torrey, because of our elevation (6837 ft.) and the fact that the temperature cools down at night. However, there are occasions in August and July when it does get hot. In that case, we will supply a standing fan to help move the air around. If days are hot, leave the windows open at night to let the cool air in and close them in the morning to keep hot air out.

There is no cable or Dish TV. The 21 in. TV is attached to an antenna and has 13 broadcast channels, such as ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS TV channels, etc.

The town of Torrey is the gateway town to Capitol Reef National Park, just 4 miles to the west of Joy and Bernie's Log Home. Most businesses close at the end of October and open again in the spring. The area is beautiful in all four seasons. If you are coming in the late fall or winter, come prepared with the provisions you will need.

Spring through Fall, amenities include: the Chuckwagon General Store in the center of town, coffee shops and restaurants, (some that serve alcohol and have seasonal weekend live music,) art galleries, gift shops, 2 gas stations, and an auto repair shop. The Chuck Wagon has a small laundromat and beauty shop if needed. The end of May through the end of October there is a wonderful Farmer's Market at the center of Torrey on Saturdays from 4-6 pm featuring local food and other products. The Old House At Center and Main features the work of local craters and artisans. If you are coming from the east, Mesa Farm Market in Caineville sells homemade goat cheeses & yogurt, artisan bread made in a brick oven, coffee, fresh garden vegetables and fruit from their orchard in season.

There is a full sized grocery store, Royal's Food Town, 18 miles west of Torrey, in the town of Loa. The store is open until 8:30 and also open on Sunday.

Torrey, Utah, Estats Units

The Log Home is 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 and juniper forest with sage and rabbitbrush desert scrub. The area has been referred to as high desert or cold desert, due to it's elevation and cool temperatures, fall through spring.

The house 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 home brings wildlife and an abundance of birds into the area and property. We have kept our yard free of pesticides and let it grow wilder than most do, to facilitate our yard being used by the local animals and birds for food, habitat, nesting material, etc. We have noticed that the birds, deer, ants and squirrels have all been eating from the 90 year old apricot trees just outside the back door. We are happy to share our property with our "deer friends and neighbors."

Because the mountains and plateaus surrounding Torrey rise to nearly 11,000 feet, the town rarely experiences the heat that much of Southern Utah does. We do get rain occasionally -- mostly in July and August. If temperatures do get hot during the day in July and August, the nights cool off quickly.

To the East, the Torrey valley drops down into the redrock country of Capitol Reef National Park (4 miles away), to approximately 5,500 feet in elevation. The Navajos and Utes referred to the beautiful multicolored rock of the "waterpocket fold" and surrounding area, as "the land of the sleeping rainbow."

Torrey is centrally located for many Southern Utah adventures. Accessible within 1.5-2 hours drive are parts of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, and the canyons of the San Rafael Swell. Moab, with Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, is about 3 hours east. The Escalante Canyons are approximately 2 hours south. Bryce and Zion National Parks are about 3 hours south.

Boulder Mountain to the South, Thousand Lakes Mountain to the North, and the Fish Lake area to the west and north, all have mountain lakes, streams and wooded areas.

The area around Torrey is stunning in it's natural beauty and is a wonderful get-a-way from the city or the suburbs. Come to the "land of the sleeping rainbow." Enter the land of your soul.
