Initially I thought this was going to be a tacky tourist spot... well, maybe it is, but they also have some pretty neat metal works on the site. I didn't go into the shops or take the tour, but enjoyed looking at the metal sculptures. A nice place to stretch the legs after a long drive.

The home itself was definitely worth the round-trip drive down and back from Moab. It's really an epic artifact of roadside American kitsch. Thankfully, someone had the foresight to turn it into a little museum. The interior of the cave-house has been embalmed in its 1960s state with all the furniture and decor, seemingly as the deceased couple left it.... More

The large advertising billboard on the way from Moab has a picture of a bear standing on its hind legs with the text "Will beg for food". What a shameful indication of the attitude towards the current animals here that are used as commodities to try to attract the tourist buck. There is no need to have animals at an... More

Stopped in on our way out of Moab. It's a nice little place for a quick stop. I would definitely recommend to do the tour of the actual home. Impressive what was built there. Overall just a quick must see if you're in the area.

If you are just passing through or if you are staying a while in Moab, you simply have to come to the Hole 'N the Rock. For those passing through, there are great shady places to picnic and stretch your legs, as well as a fine store with maps and fun geedunk and the tour of the actual home and... More

We were not sure what to expect but this in an interesting place to stop. Some different things to look at and the house tour is well worth it. The guide made it interesting and fun. Much more than a hole In the rock.

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
