What a find! Skyridge is right at the edge of Capitol Reef National Park, situated on acres of beautiful property with breathtaking views. The rooms are magnificently appointed; the Pinion Room where we stayed had its own attached outdoor hot tub. We loved it!

We enjoyed our stay here. The Sagebrush Room is terrific - spacious, airy, great views, private deck and hot tub. Walls throughout the house include local artwork. Breakfast was excellent - served at 8 am. Innkeepers were somewhat formal and reserved but pleasant. I'd definitely go back!

Our group of 10 stayed at the SkyRidge Inn for just 1 night in early August and we rented 4 of the 6 rooms there. The family suite Tumbleweed on the 1st floor was a big room attached to the house but had a separate entry, you didn't need to get in the house to go to the room. In other words, every time you wanted to get from your room to the main building, you needed to use either the front or the back door. Our family of 4, especially our teenage daughters, loved the L-shaped room. The other rooms were all inside the house. Buffaloberry on the 1st floor was smaller but quite comfortable for 2 teenagers. The best room of the house was probably the Sagebrush which was on the 2nd floor. There was a hot tub on the balcony and the view of Capitol Reef was absolutely stunning. The most romantic room was the Chamisa on the top floor with Cathedral ceiling. The decor was amazing and the room had a separate bathroom. The bedroom and the bathroom took up the whole of the 3rd floor. Its view was unbelievable. Breakfast was served quickly. The adults ate in the dining room and the kids had a separate dining area in the lovely sitting room. Birds were frequent visitors to the bird feeder outside the dining room windows and we really enjoyed watching the birds during our short but delicious breakfast. They served the most amazing pancakes.
