About Dave McKay

i love the out doors and this property is in the center of outdoor adventure. No crowds here! The only business in town that is open is the Shell station down by the interstate. This is a GHOST TOWN !

Dave McKay purchased this mobile home in 2012

Why Dave McKay chose Utah

peace and quite! wild life! Indian art 3 miles up the canyon! Hidden treasure trove of Dino tracks . Beautiful cliff trails that can be driven by atv or in some cases, car! Antelope herds travel through Town! Spectacular Trails!

What makes this mobile home unique

I rode out of town July 3 2012 on my atv and rode all the way to Arizona ( 504 miles one way!) Never crossed private property!!! Saw antelope and bufalo herds on the way!

Cozy, quiet, and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Our girls love the tiny house shows and were excited to experience one. Bigger than those on tv, but definitely cozy. It fit our family of four just fine with one in the loft and one on the couch. Quiet and off the beaten path outside of Moab. The house was clean and had everything we needed, nice kitchenware, lots if towels. Oudoor patio adds to the space and was nice to enjoy morning coffee. Great value and highly recommend!

Nicely appointed cozy house

  • 4 of 5

Basic but very nice accomadations. Not fancy but very comfortable and clean.

35 min drive to Moab and Arches but this was offset by the affordability and its very

quiet setting. Would be nice if the Internet worked (which it didn't).

The little big house that has it all!

  • 5 of 5

4 of us stayed at this house for 2 nights and liked the place alot. We watched beautiful sunsets on the mountain horizon. We saw prairie dogs from the house, but never met the proud owner of the house who keeps his place clean and up kept. We went to Arches and Canyon-lands parks and hanged out at Moab. We'd stay in here again!

Very nice and modern tiny homes and RV facility

  • 5 of 5

The staff was attentive and responded to messages and phone calls. The tiny home as I call it was perfect. It has all the amenities of home, including wifi. I recommend this for couples or even single travelers.

Quiet! Away from crowded Moab

  • 5 of 5

I love Moab, don't get me wrong, but when I finally get to my bed at the end of the day, I prefer it be quiet these days. And I got exactly that at Ballards location. The location in Thompson, UT has a 2010 census population of 48 so this area is just what I was looking for. On clear evenings the stars go on endlessly! Dave McKay the proprietor was friendly and helpful, although I'm still confused as to why Jim Lindsey is listed in VRBO and not Dave. I'd recommend the 2.5 hour (or longer) ATV tour with Joe through the backcountry. So exhilarating! The accommodations were just right for me and everything was clean and organized. So nice that coffee grinds were provided! Lifesaver for sure. One item to mention: the wi-fi was moderate to weak most of the time. First world issue, I know, and especially in a remote location I was happy to have wi-fi at all! Thanks again...
