The Torrey Schoolhouse Bed & Breakfast Inn is located in the historic town of Torrey at the western entrance to Capitol Reef National Park. Scenic views from the Inn include spectacular red rock cliffs and mountain peaks. Begun in 1914, the Torrey Schoolhouse operated as a school and cultural center from 1917 through 1954. The second-floor community dance hall served as a gym for its students during the week, and as community dance hall or sporting arena on the weekends. One of its most famous (or rather, infamous) regular visitors was Leroy Parker (AKA Butch Cassidy) who, along with other outlaws of his time, found refuge in this area-- sometimes called "Robber's Roost."
The Inn is within walking distance of art galleries, shops, boutiques, cafe's and award-winning restaurants, and can be a "home base" for exploration of the Capitol Reef, and Scenic Highways 12 and 24. The renovated schoolhouse has 10 guest rooms including a wedding suite, and a wheelchair accessible room. Each room has a private bath embellished with Italian marble, air conditioning, massaging recliners, highspeed wireless and ethernet DSL, and cable TV available upon request. Temper-pedic topped mattress in each room provides exceptional comfort for guests. Each floor is equipped with a service room with refrigerator, microwave, sink and coffee pot for guests.
