We had a one-night stay at Grey Dawn - two story cabin which looks quite rustic from the outside but is more sophisticated inside. There was absolute silence overnight, occasionally broken by the birds, and humming-birds squabbling over the feeder on the porch, which was a first for us from England!
The upstairs bedroom is quite spacious and comfortable, with views out on three sides over fairly empty hills - there are some other homes and cabins within view and the bathroom has a full proper bath, with shower and a goodly supply of towels.
The main downstairs room has a kitchen area with microwave and coffee maker, additional hot-plates hidden in the seating of the dining table! TVs up and downstairs with full satellite service. Odds and ends such as salt/sugar etc were already there.
Check-in is dealt with by finding the cabin and opening the door!! We saw no-one having dealt with booking and payment on-line so it really felt as if it were a cabin just waiting for passers-by to use at their whim!
Do note that it is around 20 miles or so from Moab up into the hills and the road is fairly rough in places - need to avoid the cows!
