• The Origin of the Idea

The unique 42 acre property on which our Cougar Ridge Lodge and Casitas were built was discovered many years ago in Torrey, Utah – the gateway to Capitol Reef National Park and other spectacular areas in Southern Utah. We had visited this area on business excursions to our local, family Stone Plant and Rock Quarries. The serenity and natural beauty of Torrey and the surrounding area captivated us. We purchased the “Ranch” and shortly after built our Cabin, which is nestled in our red rock cliffs. Years later, conceived on Scotch Ridge, we decided to create a world class facility in one of most remote and scenic areas in our country and create an environment for our guests to seek adventure, have learning activities and just relax!


We want you and your traveling companions to have the best experience possible. Give us a call and we’ll help you plan your trip from a “local’s” perspective – including transportation, dining and activities.

Alternatively,  you can go low key and just enjoy the beautiful setting of the facility, and serenity of your own suite or casita.

From intimate weddings to active weekends, corporate retreats and reunions, we can help you organize a personalized itinerary. Ideal for groups up to 30 people staying comfortably in our facilities.  We also have the ability to organize larger functions – up to 100+ people –  using additional lodging in the area.
