Our 40 acre Escalante Canyon retreat is part of a 160 acre private inholding in the heart of The Grand Staircase/ Escalante National Monument. Entered where Scenic Highway 12 (‘the golden loop’) crosses the Escalante River, it is the hiking trailhead to the renowned Escalante Canyons. Our retreat is the last 40 acres downriver before 75 miles of wilderness area, running to Lake Powell.


This very private get away is a two bedroom, 2 bath river front home, with views on all sides of your own private canyon, meadows, cliffs and river. The 1300 sq foot architect crafted home sits in a lush riparian oasis surrounded by massive sandstone cliffs. Hike from your door to first class scenic wonders.

Also, 2nd bedroom with queen, 8 X 30 foot deck; all tucked in between large cottonwood shade trees. No TV available.
