Castle Valley Inn treats its guests to 360 degree views of the Utah Canyonlands. Located in a dramatic high desert valley at 5000 feet, the skyline immediately south of the Inn is dominated by the lofty La Sal Mountains. Five minutes to the north, the Colorado River cuts its serpentine canyons. In this setting, Castle Valley Inn offers visitors a place to relax and unwind in informal comfort. Five acres of grounds are maintained in orchard, lawn, fields to provide guests the “elbow room” expected in a landscape of such immensity. The distractions of city life, happily, seem far away indeed. Mornings…
A generous Canyonlands breakfast starts each day with plenty of ground coffee, tea, fruit and fresh squeezed juices. Inn guests feast on a range of fresh, healthy regionally inspired specialties like Western Ranch Breakfast, Southwestern Quiche, Apple-topped Whole Grain Pancakes, Cowboy Fritata and Utah eggs Florentine. In the bed and breakfast tradition, this meal is included in the room rate. Complimentary hot and cold beverages are available for guests at the Inn. While at the Inn…
Soak in the spacious Grandview Hot Tub while enjoying redrock and mountain silhouettes; relax and read by the huge, native rock fireplace; strike up a conversation with Inn guests who visit from all fifty states and many countries abroad; watch a movie from the Inn’s large library of top-ranked films; browse the Inn’s collection of artwork; toss a horseshoe; enjoy an evening stroll on the loop path while you stargaze the tremendous Utah night sky (with an eye out for glimpses of native mule deer!).
Five acres of grounds are maintained in orchard and expansive lawn with tended flower beds to provide guests the “elbow room” expected in a landscape of such immensity. The Innkeepers cater to this dreamy private park with lawn furniture and hammocks. There are over 200 mature trees on this desert property giving a shady, cool, green and lush oasis quality. The distractions of city life, happily, seem far away indeed.
Castle Valley Inn is a wildlife sanctuary of sorts. We support a large population of many different western birds, by feeding and providing habitat. There is also a small herd of native Mule deer who live on or around the Inn year round and, wild cottontail bunnies are frequent evening visitors. Ring – necked Pheasant and Gambel’s Quail can be heard in the mornings and sometimes seen from your room window.
Castle Valley Inn is 30 minutes, or 17.5 miles from Moab along the scenic highway 128. This unique river highway runs along the southeast boundary of Arches National Park. The drive along the River, to and from the Inn, is one of the most spectacular scenic drives in the Country. You drive along at river level looking up at 1000′ to 1500′ cliffs. Each turn in the road gives an unbelievable new view. Much of the drive is still open range with no fences to hide any part of your view. It is often heard described as a “grand canyon of its own,” and every bit as beautiful as any National Park. Everything you would except in the wild Utah west.
