We came here with a Girl Scouts group a few years ago and I wasn't impressed. They charge you too much to tour a house that is cool, but is over-rated. It smelled and the tour didn't feel genuine. The admission price was too high for what we got.

This is a great place to see how smart and industrious the pioneers were. The stories about the family are awesome and they built a house underneath a solid rock is incredible. The tour is decently priced and well worth the time. If you do not have time for a tour, you can walk around the large property looking at... More

I'm glad we did it. I wouldn't go again. That about sums it up. The gift shop was tired, and we were barely acknowledged by the woman working the counter. I thought it was worth the $6 price tag. Our tour guide was fun, although we could tell he's done it a thousand times. But we were the only two... More

This place was described to me as a "tourist trap" by a coworker. We went anyway and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The tour was interesting, and the gift shops were stocked with a mix of cheap, hokey items for the kids and more valuable/collectable Native American items for adults. It's just the kind of kitschy place you would have stopped... More

Enjoyed this unique attraction while in Moab after our visit to Arches National Park. They have a tour for $6 Adult and $3.30 for kids. Worth to see a home made out of a HUGE Rock. What I didn't like was the prohibited use of a camera inside the Rock home. It was indeed interesting. I saw many creative ways... More

I know Tripadvisor wants places one has been to in the last year, & I get that as things could change - Well I was not a "Trip Advisor" back then & this place should not have changed That is part of the beauty they are preserving it as it is/was. I was there in August 2009. So here is... More

Oh dear, how sad was this. Yes I am sure it is unusual, but there is a definite feel of tiredness here. The 'tour' was given with a weary, ' I have done this a hundred times' feel. The shop sold soda but charged for a cup!!!!! And no refills. Some real paranoia about taking pictures, they commented on being... More

Incredible! From the outside this looks like the common roadside tourist attraction, but I am SO glad we stopped to check out this home and take the short tour. You just won't believe it! We rate this a Don't Miss if you are in the area.
