Cabin overlooks Moab and appeals to folks wanting to experience peace & quiet.

Welcome to our Moab cabin.

With state and local government guidelines in place the cabin is officially open starting May 1st, 2020. The guidelines consist of space between guest visits. Per COVID19 best practices, the following will occur:

1) Our cleaning staff will not be able to enter the cabin for 24 hours from the departure of guests. This means departure times will apply earlier than previous years allowing a quicker schedule for cleaning to take place. Departure time is now 9:00 AM.

24 hours after that departure, the cabin will be cleaned.

2) The next guests will not be able to arrive until 48 hours from the previous guests' departure.

Example Timeline - Guest checks out on Sunday at 9:00 AM, room/rental is left alone for the rest of the day. On Monday morning at 9:00 cleaning services are provided. On Wednesday afternoon the room/rental is available for new guests to check-in.

3) Each guest's driver's license or official ID will be photographed and kept on file with us per the government guidelines.

NOTE to interested guests/visitors. The calendars within will show dates available upon the departure of the previous guest but we are honoring the guidelines so you should calculate into your planning the 48-hour in-between period. Please carefully consider the dates that are open in the calendars as being different than when you can actually reserve. We will do our best to block out or otherwise demonstrate that 48 hour period to avoid confusion but your co-operation is much appreciated.

CAUTION: During the months of March and early April as well as November, the weather at the cabin can be fickle and it is possible to receive snow. We strongly recommend that if planning on coming during these times you have a four-wheel-drive or high clearance vehicle.

Caution # 2 Because the cabin is set away on private land, our cleaning service requires one day between bookings. Same day departures of previous guests and arrival of new guests are too difficult to schedule so when looking at the calendar please recognize the dates available and pick a date one day following the previous booking. If you are inflexible with your scheduling, let us know and I can ask for exceptions of the cleaning lady.

We love the great outdoors and adventure. By fact that you are here, we know you do as well. We tried camping with tents and sleeping bags when we were younger, and while, we respect those who enjoy camping we discovered that the creature comforts or lack thereof made the difference in our partnership with Nature. At our last family camp out and after burning a hole in our new eight-man tent and burning my hand with our new gas lantern scrambling inside to escape a Summer rain I looked at my wife and asked if she was having fun. Reviewing the muddy mess of our camp kitchen and inevitable cleanup she thought a moment and said “No…are you?”

That was in the early 1990s and we subsequently set a plan to interact with Nature on more comfortable terms. Creature comforts and isolated from the hubbub of crowds, our cabin offers an escape from the city and the stress of everyday life. Unique to the arid geology of Moab the cabin has: Three bedrooms. Comfortable soft down comforters,

• Two full bathrooms. Linens included.

• Hot showers, running water after a day of adventure

• Modern kitchen with all the kitchen gadgets


• Fire pit for roasting smores (subject to fire restrictions by the forest service)

• Fifty-two-inch flat screen with a family-oriented inventory of movies

• Good cell phone service

• Wrap around deck with Spectacular views

• Low light pollution. Night skies within the darkest triangle in the continental US

• Hiking/biking trails on property and nearby

• Rustic Charm

• Isolated from crowds, a half-mile private lane into the cabin.

• Warm days, cool nights

• Parking for large vehicles and trailers. (A meadow)

Located off the Sand flats road on the Wilson Mesa at 7300 feet elevation the cabin is a perfect base camp for visiting the area’s attractions. Near the trailheads of Porcupine trail, Kokopeli trail, slick rock, (world-famous as the best mountain biking and hiking spot in the USA), and Finns N Things. The cabin is close to Moab’s Famous off-roading and mountain biking locations, which include Arches national park, Canyonlands, Warner Lake, LaSal mountain range, and Castle Valley. Available for short (3 days 3 nights) or long (1-2 week) vacation stays. 1700 sq. feet of modern convenience but still a cabin. Restriction Notice. All off-road vehicles including motorcycles need to be trailered into property and trailer-ed out of the property. No off-road use within the parameters of the half-mile lane into the cabin.

Breathtaking views of the LaSal Mountains from one deck, the Moab rim from another, and Arches national park from yet a third.13 miles from Moab and the Colorado River. No light or sound pollution; you will experience peace and quiet. Starting at sunup and lasting all day, hummingbirds vie for nectar from feeders on the porch. Sometimes so many they perch on your shoulder waiting their turn. Please watch the video above and check photos from cabin adventures. Read some of the testimonials/references from previous guests. Click on our blog link below to view more photos and excerpts from other guests. Call or email today to check availability as the cabin generally reserves 4-6 weeks in advance. We welcome you to the area and Susie and I are genuinely pleased that you are considering the cabin for your getaway. We promise you won’t be disappointed, on the contrary, you will have a vacation to remember for life.

Loved walking/hiking on the property. Views are amazing. It is a bit away from town which in the long run is a blessing. Collect a weeks worth of groceries.... so you spend the days seeing sights, 4x4 off roading or what makes you happy. Best thing is going back to a peaceful, relaxing and beautiful sunset... knowing all you need is waiting for you. Loved the many hummingbirds, a few friendly cows and friendly dog. We loved our stay.

This was our second time staying at John’s cabin and it was fantastic. Easy, comfortable, with beautiful views and access to both La Sal mountain activity and the parks of Moab. John is an excellent host-quick to respond and puts his guests first. We’ll be back again!

If you want to be smack in the middle of some of the best scenery Moab has to offer, and have it all to yourself, this is the place. The drive from Moab is long, And rough at times, but felt like driving through a national park. The night skies are unreal. The cabin itself was rustic and charming. Very cozy and comfortable for our family of four. Great communication with owner. Highly recommend this property. It’s a very special place.

LOVED this cabin in the woods/on the mesa. So peaceful. Gorgeous views. Night skies were amazing. We spent a couple of days exploring and hiking at Arches National Park and a couple just enjoying the cabin and surrounding area. It’s not a short drive to town so be sure you get groceries you need if planning to stay awhile. John was super helpful and had great suggestions for things to do and see. Will definitely be back!

Incredible location with amazing views, spacious property, all the amenities needed, and peace and quiet. We had a great time exploring the National Parks and having space to relax in the evening.

The best way to describe it would be to say its an authentic mountain experience. Listening to the Elk and other various animals adds to the grandeur.

Great place to get away from it all! very quiet and huge skies! we liked our stay and will defiantly be back to explore the greater area. John is a great host and very communicative.

Getting to the cabin is half the fun! Farland was very helpful. Great communication from John, the owner. Must see: Canyonlands, Arches, Corona Arch ( outside of the park and a great hike), scenic RT 128, Warner Lake , sunsets at the cabin and the Colorado River. Thanks for a great time! Chris A.

I have wanted to come to Moab with my wife and friends for years to experience the parks, trails and culture for years. The trip was even better than I could have imagined. The cabin is beautiful and the serene mountain setting was just the thing we needed to reset and recover from the exciting days we had. Yes, the driveway is a little rough and you have to traverse some dirt roads, but the payoff is completely worth it. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone considering a Moab vacation and, like us, desires to stay away from the crowded downtown of the city.

This is a great cabin away from the hustle and bustle in Moab. It’s only 16 miles from town but takes about 1 hours to get there Moab. Well worth it for us. Lots of Jeep, UTV and bike riding near by. I talked with the owner sever times prior to our arrival. Very Very nice man who would take his time to answer all questions and told me about stuff I hadn’t thought of. I would stay there again!
