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

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
