The Escalante Cliff House was completed 2019 and is on 160 private acres overlooking the Escalante River Valley and North Creek River Valley. The nearest structures are the Slot Canyons Inn Bed and Breakfast (breakfast available with a reservation) and the North Creek Grill, both about ¼ mile away. The property is in the heart of the Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument and is 10 minutes from the town of Escalante, Utah.
This is a 2200 sq/ft, 3 bed, 3 bath home. The central living room design is inspired by the circular “Kiva” room of the Ancestral Pueblo Native Americans that previously inhabited the land, and left behind several cliff dwellings, pictographs and petroglyphs in the surrounding area. Half of the Kiva Great Room circle is made up of windows which acts as a passive solar heating system in the winter and gives the room a 180° panorama of the valley below. In the center of the room is a large cylindrical stone fireplace for romantic ambiance or fun group evenings. The house features fiber internet from South Central Communications with 1 gigabit download speeds.
Above the Kiva Great Room and the master bedroom is a 1600sqft roof deck where guests can enjoy 360° views of the surrounding cliffs, river valley, Boulder Mountain, Henry Mountains and Box Death Hollow by day and the brightest star gazing imaginable by night. Come enjoy the newest, most secluded rental home with the best views in Escalante!
With the roof deck, this property would also be incredible as a yoga retreat, wedding venue, corporate retreat, etc... Contact owner for arrangements.
Guests will have access to the entire house as well as the surrounding 160 acres which includes the Escalante River, 2 waterfalls, pictographs and petroglyphs, Ancestral Pueblo Native American ruins, hiking, solitude and pure happiness.
About the Owner:
My father bought this land in 1983. Growing up this land was where we spent our vacations with our cousins. It was my favorite place on earth as a child and now it's my childrens favorite place on earth. In 2018-2019, my brother Adam built this house for me on a piece of land that my mother gave me. I love being a vacation rental owner and being able to share the love that I have for this land with other people. As this land has been in my family for 40 years and is very dear to me, I've worked very hard to create a truly extraordinary space and guest experience. Come stay at the Escalante Cliff House and I think you'll agree!
PET POLICY: No pets are allowed. I've never made an exception so please don't ask.
WINTER CONSIDERATIONS: Between Mid November and the end of February there is a possibility of snow on the road up to the house. Even if the road is plowed, it's likely that a 4wd will be needed to get to the house, especially at night. A 4wd is highly recommended during this time.
DISTANCE TO MAJOR AIRPORTS: The house is about 5 hours from either Salt Lake City airport or Las Vegas Airport.
