The Courthouse

The stately historic Piute County Courthouse, built in 1903 is listed on the national registry of historic buildings and has been meticulously restored for your ultimate family reunion experience. Located in the very heart of Utah on scenic US Highway 89 makes it easily accessible year-round. Literally surrounded by Utah’s spectacular national parks, the Courthouse is fast becoming a family favorite for those wishing to share wonderful experiences under one very tall and magnificent roof.

The spacious Courthouse boasts 8 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, a full-size kitchen and a large dining room as well as the huge original court room equipped with a giant fireplace, air hockey, foosball, TV, movies, and the beautiful, handmade original judge’s bench. Couches, chairs and sleeping mats make this room a big hit. One of the five large walk-in vaults is actually a four bed bunk room kids always love. Perhaps the most interesting room is the library with its loft and 20 foot tall ceilings loaded with books, puzzles and a chess set, plus a beautiful view of Junction’s Main street below. The library can also be used as an additional bedroom with the sleeping sofa provided.

The Courthouse is surrounded by expansive lawns with huge trees perfect for outdoor activities and offering plenty of room to park RVs or pitch tents. An outdoor fire pit with wood is provided along with two barbecue grills, plenty of comfortable chairs and picnic tables. Our large toy shed will keep the kids entertained with volleyball, horseshoes, badminton and croquet. A full-size playground awaits just down the street at the town park.
