Quaint roadside tourist attraction. House built into the rock is interesting pity can't take photos. Guide was good. Zoo and house are charged separately, not shown on the leaflets. Items around the site are interesting and the shop has very good ice creams. Up for sale by owner as of June 2015 so don't know what will happen to it.

This is the good kind of tourist trap, that’s secretly kinda cool and amazing. It’s very impressive how they were able to carve out, fit out for electricity and furnish the space as a comfortable 50’s style home. And the grounds outside are full of so many awesomely kitschy statutes and oddities that you might not catch them all.

I'm not sure if its a "MUST SEE" but if you have some extra time on your hands drop in, its very different/unique. This is a good example of things that can be accomplished when you have too much time on your hands. Its not too often that you see a house carved into solid rock. I'll tell you one... More

Campy, wierd, odd little place. Not sure I can recommend it but if you're into odd little places it may be worth your money. That all said..it's pretty impressive that a man carved his home in a rock. pretty impressive feat. I was less impressed by his taxidermy skills of his donkey. did I mention this place was odd?

We loved getting to look in and around the house during our tour. This is a staple in Utah and we can't wait to go back!

This place is fascinating! If you don't take the tour of the home, you're missing the entire experience! I've stopped a couple of times and walked around the grounds without going in the home, and I had no idea what I'd missed! Our last time through, we went in and were blown away (no pun intended!). I've never seen anything... More

Lots of hype on this, but just a gift shop and a paid tour of a house in a rock. Too much hype and not enough substance. Not even a cafe to grab a bite to eat.

Good place for a quick pit stop. We didn't take the tour or visit the zoo but went inside the gift shop to pick up a snow globe.

This Hole N the Rocks reviews online don't do it justice. If you're not sure if going, is worth the ten minute drive outside of Moab, you're wrong! You must see this unique home all hand made by a loving married couple. The tour is worth the money. Two little gift shops and also a petting zoo that we would... More

It's one of those places that when you drive by you wonder about the beauty of mother nature and how such a hole in a rock ever got there.
