Just amazing! It’s yummy and the service is on point! A cute gift shop too.
This is the easiest site to see, and ultimately the most fun with children. Parking is really easy, and you can see skull rock from the road... But it is best to climb the rocks, see what is on the other side.
Our family of four just left there, we are ready to go back. This place has all the modern conveniences we needed, WiFi, without the nuisance of televisions. The Lodge Living room has lots of table to sit at, play games, look at maps, books, and they have all the normal family games to play, chess, life, sorry, monopoly, etc.. though it is hard to stay in the lodge since it’s placed on a beautiful working farm, complete with Buffalo they raise. The valley walls show you the red rock, geological layers as they tease you for your day adventure into Capital Reef.
They serve breakfast! It’s wonderful! Meals for vegetarians too, but beware of the mounted and stuffed game on the walls, it will be weird for you vegetarians. For the rest of us, it was educational to show where our food comes from. Walking the grounds is beautiful- an apple orchard is in the back, the next field is nicely trimmed grass with a jacuzzi on the deck enjoying the valley view, the red walls and stars at night.
This place is restoring to know it exists, and we can go back after the day to day city/work/commute/kids&tantrums.
The staff are very helpful, they get things for you, like running for ice. It is a weird feeling to always be asked “what can I get for you?” 😊
My kids, 5 and 6, loves playing with their two tame outdoor kitty’s.
The Buffalo/bison fields are right in front of the lodge, sooner or later you will have great photo opportunities with them.
In the winter there is a wood burning fireplace in each room.... summertime they have a/c. An awesome rock fireplace in each room!
Truly on my top 3 places I’ve stayed!
