We visited the Moab area during three roasting days in July, nervous that we had made a huge mistake in terms of time of year. It turned out to be a magical experience. The lodge was perfect. Our family of six took two cabins, each with two bedrooms. The cabins were right across from each other, looking out onto the Colorado River. The cabins were immaculate and COOL, very comfortable bedding, with spacious kitchenettes. Each had a lovely deck right on the river. The staff was friendly. The food was not gourmet, but hearty and the buffet breakfasts were hits with our kids — something for everyone. My daughter and I went horseback riding — a group trail ride into the canyons. perfect for beginners, and competent, upbeat leaders. Nice pool (but too hot for us during the afternoons). For what we got — spacious accommodations, beautiful setting — I felt the price was extremely reasonable. The lodge is a good 25 minutes from Moab, but we went in each night for dinner and didn't feel the ride was too long. This is an ideal resort for a family looking for a base of operations to explore this truly spectacular area of our country.
