The SpaceHoodoos Hideaway guest room is in Henrieville, Utah, on Scenic Highway 12. It is conveniently and centrally located between Bryce Canyon, Kodachrome Basin and Escalante. The house and yard are nicely maintained, with fruit trees and a garden. You have your own private room, with a full/double bed, en suite bathroom with toilet & shower.
A portable A/C unit & heater, as well as ceiling fan are in the room for guest comfort. There is also a television with AppleTV. The guest room rate includes high-speed wifi, which is strong throughout the house, as well as in the lovely courtyard.
Also included in the rate is one load of laundry per stay!
Breakfast is included! Fresh coffee, custom roasted on site, juice, tea, milk, almond or coconut milk, Utah's Aspen Mills bread for toast, (gluten free bread with advance notice) and hard-boiled eggs that are from vegetarian fed, cage free chickens. If available, they will be fresh eggs from our own chickens!
Enjoy the beauty of the hills, as a scenic overlook is just a block away. There are many mini-farmettes in Henrieville. You can expect to hear country sounds of horses, sheep, a rooster or two, chickens, magpies, white-winged doves and the occasional dog bark.
Hoodoos Hideaway is below a major flight path for high altitude airliners, so if you download the PlaneFinder HD app, you can discover who is up there. There are also great astronomy apps that will enhance your night sky viewing. I hope that you will enjoy the beauty of the property and the area as much as I do! Guest AccessGuests have access to the living room, as well as the kitchen and dining area. Outside, the courtyard seating area, as well as use of the courtyard grill, the backyard bench for stargazing and our kitchen to prepare meals. Interaction with GuestsThis is an owner-occupied home. My husband and I will respect your privacy, although we are available to answer questions or if you just want to chat! Feel free to use the common living & kitchen areas between the hours of 6:00 am and 10:00pm.
Our bedroom is on the opposite side of the house from the guest room, in a wing separated from the guest room by a long hallway and a divider door.
We have one friendly, elderly dog, (a border collie/blue heeler mix) and 3 young, indoor cats. There are also some semi-feral neighborhood cats that visit the property.
If you have allergies to animals, you might want to consider staying elsewhere. I do my best to keep the house clean; daily vacuuming area rugs, sweeping wood floors and opening windows for fresh air.
