There’s no shortage of things that make Cougar Ridge one of the best hotels Torrey Utah has to offer. From our luxurious villas to the amazing Grand Lodge, our friendly resident farm animals, incredible views, and great location, a stay at our Capitol Reef resort is a great choice for couples, families, and more.

But one of the things that makes our property so unique is the wide range of unique on-site amenities we offer. If you’re thinking about planning a stay at one of the best hotels Torrey Utah has to offer, keep reading to learn a few of the best amenities you need to take advantage of.

A Private Rodeo

Topping the list as perhaps the most unique amenity you could enjoy at Cougar Ridge is one that you definitely won’t find at the other hotels Torrey Utah has to offer. Guests looking to treat their guests to a truly unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience can schedule their very own private rodeo right here at Cougar Ridge!

Watch real live cowboys and cowgirls as they zip around barrels, twirl lassos, and more. Skip the crowds of a traditional rodeo and enjoy the convenience of enjoying one right here at our Capitol Reef resort. 

The private rodeo experience can be scheduled in advance of your stay for an additional fee. Enjoy the show with your group, and get a chance to talk to the cowboys and cowgirls afterward to ask them some questions about their sport. You can even add on a backyard BBQ to complete the experience. This experience is a great addition to corporate retreats, family reunions, and other events at our Fruita Utah hotel.

E-Bike Rentals

One of the newer amenities at our Capitol Reef resort is our e-bike rentals. Our fleet of electric bicycles is available to guests of the resort for two hours, a half-day, or a full-day rental for an additional charge.

Able to go up to 20 mph and 45 miles on a single charge, these all-terrain bikes are perfect for exploring Fruita or even just cruising around Cougar Ridge. Never ridden an e-bike before? Don’t worry! Riding e-bikes is as easy as riding a regular bicycle. You’ll still pedal, but the electric motor can help power you up inclines and make riding over long distances easier.

To rent an e-bike during your stay, call 435-425-2091 or 435-680-9170 ahead of your visit.

EV Chargers

Exploring our Fruita Utah hotel and nearby Torrey on an e-bike is a great way to enjoy the stunning landscapes in a whole new way. But what if you’ll be traveling to the region by electric vehicle as well? 

If you’re planning to travel to one of the best hotels Torrey Utah has to offer in your electric vehicle, you’re in luck. Another new amenity at Cougar Ridge are our EV chargers. Located at the Reception Building, these chargers are available for $12 per charge. This makes it easy and convenient to charge your vehicle each evening before another day of exploring Capitol Reef and the rest of Southern Utah! One trip we recommend charging up your vehicle for is a day trip to Goblin Valley State Park!

A Bonfire Party 

Torrey, Utah is one of more than 60 certified or soon-to-be certified International Dark Sky Parks and Communities located around the world. This means that local businesses and homeowners alike have taken measures to reduce light pollution. This includes minimizing outdoor lighting and using better bulbs or shielded lights when outdoor lights are necessary.

For visitors to the area, the chance to experience the dark sky as you’ve probably never seen it before is an opportunity that should not be missed. At one of the best hotels Torrey Utah has to offer, we’ve made it even easier for guests to take in the night skies.

Most Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the spring, summer, and fall at Cougar Ridge, we host a Bonfire and Star Party. Open to guests of our Capitol Reef resort as well as the public, these one to two-hour events cost $50 per adult and $35 per child. We’ll start the evening with a bonfire with s’mores and hot drinks provided. Then, we’ll move away from the bonfire area to enjoy a guided stargazing experience with a telescope.

Whether you have a stargazing enthusiast in the family or are just looking for a truly unique experience to share with family and friends, the Bonfire Party at Cougar Ridge is definitely one of the resort’s best amenities.

Spend a Day at the “Spa”

Saunas and massage therapists are often a perk only afforded to those staying in all-inclusive resorts. At our Capitol Reef resort, guests of the Grand Lodge enjoy access to their very own private spa room. Inside, you’ll find a steam room, a sauna, and a massage room, where you can schedule massages and other treatments.
