“Splendid isolation.... with humming birds!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2009

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!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2008

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in May and did not want to leave. We stayed in Grey Dawn, which is one of the cabins at Whispering Oaks. If you like to be in the middle of the action with alot of other people around and eat out every meal, then this might not be the place for you. If you are looking for scenic beauty and privacy, then this spot is perfect! Its about a half hour ride into Moab village, but the ride is spectacular as it winds you down the mountain and into Moab. For the price, which is cheaper than most B&B's in the area, you can't go wrong. Much thought and taste went into the decor - it is too adorable for words and we took pictures of every detail. The views from the lofted bedroom are of the mountains and there are picnic tables, grills and Adirondack chairs on the deck to sit and relax. Just make sure to do your grocery shopping before you get there because once you are settled in for the night you don't want to leave!

  • Liked — The beauty and privacy
  • Disliked — No convienient stores close by. On the other hand, this was nice.
