Very Interesting.

The tour of the "Rock" was very cool - in temperature too - and the displays and gift shop were fun. Don't forget to get some ice cream at the General Store!!

I expected more. The admissions sign indicated a price tax included. I was charged more and questioned and they said they hadn't updated the sign since they had a tax increase. Little things add up and the tour guide wasn't that impressive.

The original owners blasted a hole into the rock and made a multi room home. All the original old furniture and fixings are still in place. A tour guide will tell you the history. Hard to believe that someone chose to live that way, but then it was many decades ago when people were and or did quirky things.

Amazing to build your home in a rock. Hear the funny story and see how the lived in there. Take a tour in the zoo and kiss the camel. Walk around and see all the funny things around the site. We'll worthy the stop. Recommended

Curiosity called and told us to STOP HERE! What a great spot to stop. Where else can you tour a 5 thousand square foot house? We did not do the tour. We entered the souvenir shop and it full of quirky stuff. We walked on the grounds and saw old mining cart, outhouse, jeep made of license plates and tools.... More

Ok, so a 5 star rating on a tourist trap??? My rating is based on how well does this do at showcasing the class American tourist trap of the 1950's ... and this place nails it! First of all, he dynamites his way into solid rock to build a house. As if that isn't enough, he puts in a 60... More

Take the $6 tour and learn the history of this amazing home in the rock. As a part time resident of the area I tell all my out of town guests to check it out!

We really enjoyed seeing this marvel. I could actually live there; it was truly a work or art and a labor of love. Hard to believe someone actually created this wonderful home.

OK, so it's a home carved out of a rock. Yes, a marvel of engineering in its day and an example of great perseverance, but why? Rather gaudy signage on the side of the rock with the quotation mark in the wrong place.

We went here on a rainy morning because there was nothing else to do. The history behind this house is really amazing. You have to pay for the tour, $6 pp. You learn how the house was built, see everyday things that the couple used. I did notice an old fax machine in the house, I don't think they had... More
