"I rented this property to serve as a "base camp" during a man-trip to Moab and the surrounding national parks. We could not have been happier with the location and seclusion of this cabin! It was exactly what we had hoped it would be, A quiet, scenic getaway. The cabin is about a 45 minute drive from Moab but, it is perhaps one of the most scenic drives you could ask for! We enjoyed every trip to and from the cabin. I will suggest that you rent a Jeep or other four wheel drive vehicle for your trip. Sand Flats road is actually in very good shape for where this road is but, if you travel up to the cabin through Castle Valley, you will be needing a 4WD vehicle. This road is not for the non-adventurous. it is very scenic but, a bit rough in sections.
The cabin itself was great. Comfy furniture and beds, an amazing wrap-around deck and nice size bedrooms. Very cozy and welcoming. really enjoyed watching amazing sunsets and some of the clearest night skies you will ever see. Just breathtaking. We routinely had free-range cows all over the property. They were very friendly and entertaining. Be prepared to be out of breath a lot. The high elevations takes some getting used to if you live at low elevation. We were all in pretty good shape and the elevation always let us know who was boss.
My ONLY complaint, more of a caution than a complaint, is that pretty much all of the windows suck. They will fall down when you open them, some have no screens and some the screens fell out. So, if you open any of the windows just be careful. This in no way affected our comfort or took anything away from our stay. There was one cabinet door in the kitchen that was also on the verge of falling off.
So, if you are looking for some adventure, some seclusion and grand views, look no further! John, the owner, was more than accommodating and was happy to answer any questions that we had in a timely manner. He also suggested some great area restaurants. I WILL stay at this cabin again, and I will be counting the days. I truly hated to leave..."
