“Outstanding B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2011

A great deal of effort went into restoring the schoolhouse as a B&B. Just as much effort goes into making your stay quiet and comfortable. Ty went out of her way to make sure our needs were met. One of the best breakfasts we've ever had, reminded us of Christmas morning!

Ok, so I want to get this out of the way before I start raving about just how awesome this little piece of history turned B&B is. I read some reviews by travelers saying that they were put off by the demeanor of Ty, the owner. I am so confused by these reviews, and SO relieved that I did not listen to them! Ty is lovely and warm, and totally available to help you, if you need her. You only need to look at the pictures of the B&B to know that this is her passion, and it is even more stunning in person. The amount of work that she has done to restore this historic schoolhouse that sat boarded up for 50 years is impressive to say the least. Seriously, even my husband was blown away, and he usually isn't interested in details like light fixtures, or wainscoting (he kept looking around and saying, I can't believe she did all this!). Plus, the breakfasts were delightful, delicious and organic, cooked and served family style by Ty herself along with the very sweet lady who helps her (so sorry I can't remember her name).
To top it off, Capitol Reef, one of the most gorgeous places I have seen, is only 15 minutes away.
Thank you, Ty, you do Torrey proud by the work you have done!

We stayed for two nights during our National Parks tour of Utah. It was very quiet and Ty was a wonderful host. What a neat story of a converted old schoolhouse. I wish there had been a TV in the first floor room, I understand with it being ADA room that space is a premuim. I also wish breakfast would have been served a little earlier than 8:30. It gave us a little later start to the day then I would have hoped for. Breakfast was good and there was plenty of food for everyone! We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't choose the first floor room if you want a TV or your own massage chair. Due to ADA requir...

We were so impressed by the conversion of an old unused building into a delightfully decorated B&B. The grounds are beautiful and welcome a walk and seating areas for reading or just relaxing. Ty, the innkeeper, is very welcoming and a marvelous, inventive cook, choosing fruit from her garden or fresh organic food from a nearby neighbor. Don't miss this one.

Room Tip: Top floor over the principal's office.

luvutah2, Manager at Torrey Schoolhouse, responded to this review, 17 September 2011
Just one clarification: all the fruits (except the grapes) and veggies we put in the breakfasts come either from my own fruit trees, my large greenhouse (located on the north end of the property) or from our local farmers' market where I can purchase from our county's organic farm in Caineville.

After reading about the Torrey Schoolhouse in Budget Travel, I thought it would be worth a look on our way home from Yellowstone National Park. What a find! The Schoolhouse building and grounds have been beautifully and meticulously restored. There are some old photographs displayed around the house, making the transformation seem even more amazing when you see what they started with. Ty, the Innkeeper, was warm, friendly and very helpful, suggesting places to eat in the area. Our room, Chinle, was exactly what I want to see in a B&B -- everything neat, spotlessly clean and comfortable, with windows down one long wall looking out on the beautiful red rocks of the area. The bathroom was large and very well lit. We met our fellow travelers the following morning over a lovely breakfast -- frittata, salsa, toast, sauage, fresh orange juice and plenty of coffee. There was plenty of food to go around, with more on offer if desired. Ty was particularly helpful when, as we were getting up to leave the breakfast table, one of our fellow travelers asked who had the red Toyota, as the tire was flat...Ty helped us get organized with AAA and provided information on places in the area to get the tire repaired. We very, very much appreciated her assistance, and are already planning our next trip to the Torrey Schoolhouse B&B!

Room Tip: The Torry Schoolhouse web site was very helpful in checking out the various rooms. Next time we'...
