Off-site options located nearby:

Is there WIFI at Cougar Ridge?

Yes! While we do suggest unplugging upon arriving at Cougar Ridge, wifi is available in each Casita. When you arrive on the property we will get you all set up!

Are there hot tubs on-site for use?

YES!! Currently, there is one hot tub between Casitas 4 & 5 for guests to use.*

For guests renting the Lodge, we have one large hot tub on the deck for all to use.* Two of the Master suites have their own private hot tubs.


* Hot tub use is strictly for those over 16 years of age.

Is There Parking On-Site?

Yes! We have parking in front of every Casita for personal vehicles, as well as a large parking area in front of the Lodge. We also have parking for trailers and motorhomes.

Is the Ranch Pet-Friendly?

Yes! We love our furry family members, as well as yours! Casitas 6 & 7 are Pet-Friendly with a $50 per pet per night fee. Hopefully, Bronco (Ranch Dog) and Patty Cake (Ranch Cat) will make them feel at home!


Please note that this is a ranch property with animals from dogs and cats to horses and cows on site. Casitas 1 through 5 are pet free, but the decks are open to roaming wild and domestic animals and ranch pets.

How Many Days Should I stay at Cougar Ridge?

We have never figured out why most people only plan for one night in Torrey. Almost all of our guests tell us that they wish they would have known what Cougar Ridge and the Capitol Reef area is all about. All wish they would have made their stay with us longer! Needless to say, we recommend at least a 2-night stay, but you can have an amazing week-long adventure with us that will be unforgettable!

How do I check in?

Well, we are not your conventional hotel and don’t have a conventional check-in. If you could let Gary (435-680-9170) know your approximate time of arrival, he’ll meet you and get you settled. Gary is also great with directions, so if you find yourself lost, give him a call!


Come and enjoy everything we have to offer, you won’t be disappointed.
