This was the priciest place we'd booked into during a road trip around the west... and, by far, the best.
Situated a good long way off the highway through Moab, following highway 128 along the course of the Colorado River (our GPS had given up with directions a couple of miles into the road), the hotel is situated cleverly so that each room backs out onto a private view over the river and the stunning scenery around here (the name of the place kind of gives it away).
Our cabin (and I'd guess they are all the same) was spacious, with a raised sleeping area descending a few feet into a pretty useful kitchen area with a sofabed. The main bed was king-sized and very, very comfortable. The bathroom was large and functional, providing filtered (RO) water for drinking (also repeated in the kitchen). For the first time in our trip we were provided ceramic mugs and wine glasses which makes for a more pleasant experience, particularly whilst sampling the wine bought from the on-site winery whilst watching the sun set over the river.
The restaurant offers a typical American menu, and I can say that the Buffalo rib-eye steak is superb. Given that the hotel is a little off the beaten track it's a safe choice to eat here (though probably worth reserving a table).
Costly, but worth it.
