Veer from a hike and be a goofy tourist!

It was very cute and our guide had a sense of humor. The story is very interesting and romantic. Too funky inside to believe!

We drove over 1500 miles to get to Moab, UT, so by the time we saw Hole 'N the Rock, my husband was very reluctant to get out of the car. Luckily, I was driving, so we stopped. We were both very glad to have given it a chance. The home, blasted into the rock, was very interesting, a good... More

Located about 15 miles south of Moab on Hwy 191, the rock is hard to miss. It is a house and tourist shop built into a series of caves in the sandstone. There is small zoo, some very interesting metal artwork, some quirky attractions, and a place to buy trinkets and snacks. It is good for a quick stop to... More

Not the first hole in a rock I've seen, but this was the most interesting. A guided tour lasted about ten minutes and was full of interesting facts about the couple that blasted this 5000 sf, multi-roomed home out of hard sandstone. I would add that I expected a bit more time in the home and felt a bit rushed.... More

Cost was $6.50 per person for a 12 minute tour. The tour guide really rushed us through the interior. There was also a zoo on the property which if it was included in the $6.50 admission might have made up for it. Didn't do the zoo. There are two stores on the property. One is more high end than the... More

I love seeing this type of unique place. Hole 'N the Rock is located about 10 to 15 minutes south of Moab. A man blasted sandstone from this giant rock to create a 5,000 square foot house. The family's original furniture and decorations are still there. For our family of 6 it cost us $32 (4 of us were adult... More

I loved this place. The guy blasted a 5000 sqf house out of the side of a rock. They had some cool antiques and welded artwork. Nice curio shop as well. We enjoyed the visit. The tour was 6 bucks. I was impressed.

What an interesting place. They have some interesting art work. It is kind of off by itself and there is a small zoo (we didn't go in).

I am so saddened that you would review a place that you did not even stop in and visit. If you had, you would have found out the history of this location. You would have found out that those letters on the rock were painted in the 1950's by a gentleman named Del Koops and they are grandfathered into the... More

It was kinda pricey to go on a tour of the home - there is a tour guide that takes you through, which I understand why they do it, but made it somewhat rushed and slightly uncomfortable because they are waiting for you to hurry up and move to the next thing when you want to maybe look closer at...
