Over a bridge and steps from the Embudo River, this beautiful, well-equipped cottage is nestled in a private canyon amidst cottonwood trees. Relax by the river and listen to its sound as you fall asleep. The quaint town center is just a mile away.
What we love best about this private canyon are the trees and shade, the river that runs through it, and the constant sound of water. You can venture out to explore the open landscape -- enjoy the sun, heat, and arid climate, and the attractions of the busy, neighboring towns-- then retreat to this canyon refuge with its cool river, light breezes, birdsong, and shade trees. The property is densely populated with cottonwood, pinon, and juniper trees; in spring and summer, the fragrance of these and other native plants (e.g., sage) fills the air.
The cottage faces a beautiful multi-colored rock face on one side and on the other, trees and the river, and a hill covered in native, colorful plants. Through most seasons, you can hear the sound of the river from the cottage; there are also two seating areas on the river itself.
Right outside the house are two spots for relaxing: a long porch with benches out front and a patio area just outside the kitchen that has a table and several chairs. Although the owners live on the property, wood screens provide the privacy needed in the outdoor seating areas between the two houses.
The interior space is an open plan (living/dining/kitchen) with high ceilings and exposed beams throughout. The kitchen and bathroom (with shower) are new and fully equipped; the bathroom has quality towels and the bedroom, quality bedding. The bedroom is spacious and includes a king-size bed and full closet. A single (very comfortable) bed is located in a corner of the living area; the couch may also accommodate an additional person, if needed.
