About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Large Covered Porch

Located in a quiet ghost town 30 minutes north of down town Moab. Very nice, newly remodeled home. Ideal for the outdoor persons who like to bicycle for many miles and leave from the front door, perfect also if you have ATVS. There are hundreds of miles of back country ATV trails that can be accessed from the front door. We are only 3 miles from some of the areas best ancient Indian pictographs and 3 miles north of a cluster of some of the areas best dino tracks

About walter m Williams

I have traveled to all 50 states including Alaska and Hawaii, The scenery in this area ranks with some of the best I have seen.

walter m Williams purchased this mobile home in 2011

Why walter m Williams chose Thompson

In 2012 myself and 8 others left from the front door and rode ATS to Arizona, which was a 504 ride each way. Where else in the world can you do that?

What makes this mobile home unique

In this Ghost town you are surrounded by government property and as a result a tremendous amount of freedom

Exceptional value.

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly kept accomodations in a peaceful area. Fantastic value for people who know their way around Moab. Unbeatable starting point for exploring Moab North/Arches, major areas of the San Rafael Swell, the Book Cliffs, and it even works great for Colorado National Monument. Shopping available in Moab and Fruita. Shell gas with good prices around the corner. Already booked my next visit!

The Ranch House is spacious and clean. Tastefully decorated in a western theme. Beds are very comfortable. Washer and dryer are the best I've used. Plenty of hot water. Heat works fine...just enough to take the chill out in the morning and the home is so well-insulated there was no need for us to use it for the rest of the day. The owner is thoughtful...provides a well-stocked kitchen.

The park is clean and quiet. Management is friendly, accessible and accommodating. Not intrusive. The area is REALLY fascinating.

Due to the remoteness of the area you will need to travel to Green River or Moab to shop for groceries. Both are short and scenic drives. For corporate America you will need to venture further to Grand Junction, CO...a lovely place and a pleasant drive. If you want a great haircut at a fantastic price, head over to the Cut and Curl in Green River and see Becca on Wednesdays...walk-ins are welcome.

Wi-Fi worked really good 28 out of the 30 days we stayed. The 2 days it went down management resolved the issue in LESS than 24 hours. Cable is limited, so if interested, have a back-up plan...a few DVD's, a deck of cards and a couple of board games and you'll be just fine.

I would recommend and would definitely stay again.

Well worth the short (30 min) drive from Moab

  • 5 of 5

Only dislike was the occasional train but still worth it for the overall quietness. House was clean and everything worked great. Will likely stay there again.

Great trails, for bicycling and ATVS. And many trails are drivable with a car. We are 10 miles north of some of the best dinosaur tracks as well as only 3 miles south of 4500 year old Indian pictographs.......Located at I 70 exit 187 we are on your way to Moab and just 33 minutes to down town
