“Holy Cow!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

This property is majestic and our stay there truly made for the most memorable getaway I’ve ever had. The cabin has so many amenities that you almost, ALMOST contemplate staying “home” instead of exploring the nearby arches, red rock, and canyons but then you realize that you can have the best of both worlds, so you leave for a hike but look forward to it being time to go home and relax! The cabin is in a very secluded area that has an awesome view of canyon lands; basically it makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. Everything is so well maintained and comfortable that you could almost forget that you’re not staying at a friend’s house (a well-to-do, stylish, and very clean friend). For us, the whole trip had a novel feel of something that should be too good to be true but isn’t. Needless to say, we can’t wait to go back and visit again! We are all so lucky that the owners are sharing this little piece of paradise (just look at the pictures) with the rest of us! :)

Room Tip: I don't think you can go wrong, the rooms are all quite and have unique character!

We stayed in the wildflower cabin for 3 nights and truly enjoyed our stay. A lovely cat came to chat with us each evening on the porch after a hard days hiking. The peace and quiet provided for a very relaxing stay. No biting flies just whispering oaks, look forward to returning some day. Thank you.

Our family stayed in the Wildflower Cabin during July. We loved the details that made you feel at home and the furniture was so comfortable! The views were amazing and it was quiet and peaceful. I looked forward to leaving behind the heat and dust of Arches and Canyonlands to escape to the cool mountains and especially the outdoor shower!
The downside of staying here and I can't believe it hasn't been mentioned is the horrible biting fly problem!! Our family could not enjoy the pond or fishing because on our first night when we tried to explore the grounds, we kept getting bit by the horrible flies and it was painful! The fly problem was not bad at the cabin, it was only near the water which was a bummer cuz we read all about the fishing in the pond :(
Finally, while this is a great place to escape the heat of Moab, it is out of the way and you will have to add an hour on each end of your daytrip to Arches or Canyonlands. And if you visit Arches in summer you know you have to arrive early if you plan on any big hikes! Our rental car overheated during the drive up the mountain so be prepared if you have an old or worn car.

We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting Arches NP in Moab.
The drive up to the cabin was exciting and beautiful. Unfortunately we hadn't realised that the quickest road up to the cabin (45 min from Moab) was closing for roadworks. Luckily we got through on the first night when we arrived ( it was subsequently closed the next morning and we had to take the much longer route of 1hr 15min!). We had been emailed about the roadworks but it was one of 6 attachments and we must have missed it - i think this should have been mentioned in the main email and made very noticeable (e.g red, bold text!) as it had a huge impact on our stay and how long we spent driving to and from the cabin each day. That said I guess had we realised the road was going to be closed we may have cancelled our stay which would have been a mistake as it was the highlight of our trip.

All 3 roads up to the cabin were very scenic and quite fun to drive - we saw lots of wildlife in the mornings. We even tried the dirt road once but quickly regretted it - you need a 4 wheel drive. We held our breath the whole way and finally exhaled when we arrived without a puncture!

We stayed in the wildflower cabin which was adorable. It was very pretty & spacious inside. We loved coming home each evening and had fun cooking and eating dinner in the well-stocked kitchenette. Amazingly there was TV (upstairs & downstairs) and supposedly wifi internet but we were not able to get reception during our stay. The highlight was the outdoor shower - it was incredible! The bed was very comfortable and we had the best 2 nights sleep of our holiday. From the bed you could enjoy the gorgeous views but it still felt very private as the cabins are spread across the property out so you do not feel overlooked or have any noise from the other guests.

The whole experience was both exciting and relaxing and we can't wait to come back for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Wildflower cabin was gorgeous, bed very comfortable, outside shower amazing!

Thank you for taking the time to write a comment, we appreciate your feedback and insight and are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. In addition, we want to take the time to address your concerns:

First, regarding our procedure for notifying you about the road closures. We apologize for the misunderstanding and do feel it is very important to make sure our guests are as prepared as possible for the trip to the cabins. We have taken your comments under advisement and are reviewing our notification process.

Secondly, regarding the lack of wifi service. We try to maintain wireless internet service for the convenience of our guests, but recently we have had problems with the service and are working diligently with the provider to get the situation resolved.

Once again, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed the cabin and all its amenities. We look forward to having you back in the future.

This is the kind of place if it rains all weekend, you won't care. Bedrooms are individual resorts, there are plenty of couches and chairs thru-out house, and kitchen has every appliance and dish you can imagine. You'll experience the outside even when you’re inside due to the large windows and open floor-plan. We river-rafted one day and hiked Fisher Towers the next. The house is a long drive from both, but worth it, you just need to plan for that. We liked it because it wasn't easy for family members to be pulled away :) Each day was capped off with a long sit on the porch. When the wind was blowing in the front, the back porch was completely calm. WE LOVE THIS PLACE and for the price per head it was cheaper than anything else we compared. We will go back.

The Sagewood was a perfect three-day retreat for my husband and me. What you have to tolerate in drives up and down the mountain, you are repaid in full by the silence, views and presence of nature. I could sit at the little kitchen bar with a glass of wine and see snow-capped mountains and red valley views through the cabin windows. The Murphy bed was comfy enough, the kitchen quite efficient, and the overall decor of the cabin, a kind of cute-western--we loved the chandelier over the dining table! Great place.
