This is a new development of condominiums situated to the north of Moab just one mile south of Arches NP on what appears to be one of the only green places in the area. Architecturally pleasing, the buildings blend into their surroundings on a site that includes mature cottonwood trees and streams. The complex, which is still being developed, currently includes an outdoor heated swimming pool, a hot tub, and what claims to be Moab's fanciest restaurant, The Desert Bistro.
Our party of three adults and two young children rented a condo for three nights. We found it to be designed and decorated to a high standard and comprised two bedrooms on the second floor with ensuite bathrooms and a large open plan living/kitchen area on the ground floor. This led out through doors onto a terrace with dining furniture and grill and on further into the grounds of the complex. There was plenty of storage throughout the property plus an outside store for bikes, skis, etc. Our condo had a parking space out front. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. Overall this was a very comfortable, relaxing place. The slight drawback of this development is that, whilst it is set back from the main road, traffic noise is certainly noticeable at night in the bedrooms. However, we still decided it was the best place to be in Moab if we ever returned. The children particularly enjoyed the pool and hot tub as well as pursuing frogs and fish in the stream.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The resort is a renovation of Moab's oldest ranch. The historic Granstaff and Taylor Ranches were sited where copious springs of crystal-clear water issue from the red-rock cliffs. This historic oasis has a rich legacy from pre-historic times, the Pioneer era and even the twentieth century. The Spanish Trail, Butch Cassidy and Moab pioneers have each played a role. The restored two-story brick Ranch House is on the National Register of Historic Places. A stately grove of native Cottonwood trees shade and cool the spacious restored grounds. The Ranch nestles into the mesa known locally as the Slickrock Trail Mesa, which may be accessed on an old cattle trail from the Resort.Your accommodations at Moab's most luxurious Townhome Condominiums are 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms and sleeps up to 11 people. The floor plans have been called the "smartest" in town. Large windows, numerous doors, patios and balconies make these units bright and airy. ... more less
