We took the tour which included a lot of very interesting history. It's basically a home blown into a mountain/rock by dynamite….with rooms, a fireplace, even a bathroom and kitchen. The grounds also have tons of unique art and antiques to view. There's even a zoo and a gift shop. We did not go into the zoo but browsed everywhere... More

The entire property, incl zoo, animals, artwork, is currently for sale, 2.5 million. I went here with expectations of a cheesy tourist trap. At first, I was pleasantly surprised. We visited the store which had some cool old things. The woman behind the counter was exceptionally nice and said she'd been there since they opened. We bought food for the... More

I am really saddened by the fact that you needed to go to social media after our conversation that day. After trying to calm your fears, I was the first one to tell you to feel free to go further and put in a complaint with the USDA if you still felt the need, but to go public and state... More

We stopped and visited the home and toured the zoo. We loved feeding the animals, seeing an albino raccoon and all of the baby's in the zoo. The tour was a little crowded because of a tour bus arriving shortly after we came. The old tow truck dressed up as Mater from CARS was fun to see.

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.

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...
