Property Details

This one-bedroom basement apartment started out as an Art Gallery that was then turned into an apartment for family use. This apartment features a comfortable California King bed in the bedroom with a queen-sized sofa sleeper in the living room. The entire apartment is Handicap/wheelchair friendly with larger doorways and a walk-in shower. Every guest will feel at home with a full kitchen to cook up those home cooked meals and a Roko so you can log in and stay up to date with your favorite shows. The bathroom features a walk-in shower with two shower heads and a touchless-flush toilet. For the occasional 5th guest we have a twin air mattress with sheets along with extra chairs for the table. In the bedroom closet, there's a full-sized washer and dryer for your use.

We are located just off highway 191 which makes this a great place to stay, giving you easy access to all that San Juan County has to offer. Please check out our unique visitor’s map in the apartment or give us a call and we can offer suggestions of places that are a must-see. With over 13 national parks and monuments nearby, there is plenty to see and do. We also have a small park shared with our family and neighbors which is available for your use across the street. Please contact us about using the firepit at the park.

Guest Reviews

Had an ok stay by Joel 04/14/2019
Bed and pillows comfortable - Everything was clean and spacious - Probably one of the nicest places in Blanding - Directions “coming from Monticello” do not make it clear that it is right on the north edge of Blanding 20 minutes south of Monticello - Pix in Trip Advisor deceiving ... sunsets, large cabin type buildings slowly lead to reality... last three pix are real but don’t show it’s right on the highway. Attached pix is it ... you get the ground level and someone lives upstairs. - No fan over stove ... smoke alarm went off as I pan fried a steak ... pulled alarm off the mount and put it outside - Ice maker does not work ... ice cubes in the trays were old ... cubes were full of crystals and half way eaten away by sitting so long - Dogs barking in yard in the back .... not too bad - Pages of ‘how too’ and plastic labels all over everything trying to explain the numerous ‘idiosyncrasies.’ But everything worked. - Bed room is right next to Hwy 191 ... road noise consistent but amazingly not too bad

We highly recommended this property. by DJ 09/14/2018
Accommodations were comfortable, spacious, and immaculately clean. Alton was a most gracious host and did all he could to accommodate all of our needs. He even blessed us with some fresh vegetables from his garden (squash, cucumber, and corn.) What a wonderful treat. The property also provides easy access to Natural Bridges, Canyonlands N.P., and Arches N.P. We highly recommended this property.
Highly recommend! by Patrice A 03/12/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grayson Downs. It was so lovely to stay in a home after several nights at hotels. Darcie and Alton were very nice. I highly recommend a stay at Grayson Downs.
I appreciated that it's in the outskirts of blanding, you do hear the occasional industrial vehicles but not a big deal. by Juliett 10/01/2017
I appreciated that it's in the outskirts of blanding, you do hear the occasional industrial vehicles but not a big deal. The place is so spacious, as I walked Into the kitchen, living room, bedroom, closet and bathroom I kept wowing at how each space was nicely done! The communication was great and they were so thoughtful unfortunately I was not feeling good and the hosts brought me some food and medicine I felt so spoiled lol! I would definitely recommend this place! You will not regret it!
Grayson Parkway Down is located right on the highway about a mile north of town in what looks like an old garage, but don't let looks deceive you, this is a first class accommodation. by Ray 09/01/2017
Grayson Parkway Down is located right on the highway about a mile north of town in what looks like an old garage, but don't let looks deceive you, this is a first class accommodation. Darcie and Alton have created a really nice and apartment and were the ultimate gracious hosts. They supplied us with fresh fruit and veggies from their garden and offered lots of good advice on places to go. We could not have been happier with our stay there.
Best experience ever. by Abby 07/19/2017
