Saw this and just had to stop, walked around a bit, so much to see, sculptures made out of old pieces of metal, a bowling ball cactus, a jeep covered with Lic plates, and metal wheels, an old wrecker, lots of old ad signs, we just walked around and looked, it is just one of those strange places that is...

When I travel I always look for the strange and different places to see. I am a local but this is one of those places if you are out of town. Make sure you stop and check it out it is interesting enough to take the time.

OK, we were NOT going to go here, too road-side attraction-ish... but, we just couldn't help ourselves. I don't know, maybe it was the giant bowling ball cactus, or maybe the license plate jeep...we just stopped and decided to go on the tour. It was truly fascinating... I mean, this guy actually drilled and blasted this 5000 square ft home... More

Hole N" The Rock is a 5000 SF house carved out of a huge rock in Utah's Canyonlands Country. We purchased some beautiful unique jewelry at the gift shop gift shop. We took the guided tour of the home which has a very interesting history. We also saw the Exotic zoo featuring zebras, bison, 2-hump camel and many more animals... More

We rushed to get here just before they closed. We were able to do the tour and see the zoo. My 7 and 9 year olds said they couldn't wait to come back next summer. The tour was short and sweet. The whole house reminded me of fun "treasures" you would see on American Pickers. Frank and Mike would love... More

En route to Moab? Don't miss this great attraction! It's great fun to see the original, fully furnished 1950s house built inside the mountain ! The 5000 SF "home", which took 12 yrs to build, was blasted and carved in the sandstone mountain. Another great Utah attraction ! Well worth the stop, but skip the gift shop !

This was a short but sweet tour. Maybe 15 minutes, but it was super interesting to go instide and check out. Some people do crazy things in their lives and this was a fun on. There is a petting zoo on site, but we did not visit that part of the area. Great for kids and families if you have... More

This was an amazing stop because it featured huge welded iron works of scrap metal and tools which was a true work of art.There was antique memorabilia everywhere and a sculpture made with 889 colorful bowling balls in the shape of a saguaro cactus. Our grandkids loved the zoo and we liked the tour of the 4000 sq ft home... More

My husband and I were driving to Mesa Verde from Moab and just stopped at the Hole-'N-The-Rock shop and museum. We did not visit the zoo or the few other shops located on the premises because of time restraints. We did pay the nominal amount for the tour (I think it was $4 or $6 each, whatever the case, it...

If you like unusual things this place is for you. Neat stop from Cortez to Moab. Tour the house in the rock. I think the tour was like $6. .Many unusual oddities throughout the yard...like a huge bull and jeep made out of old wrenches and other odds and end parts. Double decker outhouse and other sculptures...
