Internet Service: If state-of-the-art electronic access and equipment is important to you on your vacation, this cabin is not for you. Once again, internet service can be weak and slow due to the fact that the only internet service available on the ranch is via satellite.
TV: Live satellite television is available for your convenience. You are also welcome to bring your own computer and movies for entertainment. There is a library of DVDs and VCR tapes that you are welcome to view on the television inside the armoire.
The Windows: The one-of-a-kind windows set into the rock have stood the test of time since 1990, but they're still fragile and shouldn’t be touched. Please do not sit on the rock near or touch the windows. Please monitor children's’ activity when they are near the windows. You will be responsible for any damages.
Recreational opportunities near the ranch: Arches and Canyonlands national parks and Dead Horse Point State Park are popular places to visit in the Moab area. Recreational activities near the ranch include horse and mule rides from the ranch, hiking at Fisher Towers and Mary Jane Canyon nearby, and river rafting. If you are staying at the ranch and have booked a river trip on the daily section of the Colorado River, you may be able to coordinate transportation from Highway 128 near the boat ramps without having to drive into Moab. Discuss this option with the outfitter you are rafting with.
Pets: If you bring dogs to the ranch you will be charged an additional pet fee. Dogs must be on a leash at all times or under full-control voice command when you are walking on the ranch. Please clean up after your pets and collect and remove droppings from the property. Pets may not be left unattended in the Rockhouse. You may be billed for any damage. There are kennels available for your use.
Children should be carefully monitored at all times. The river and river banks are not safe places to play, and life jackets should be used at all times if you plan to be near the river. Swimming in the river is not advised. The rock formations on the ranch are fun to climb, but guests should use extreme caution and make sure to monitor children at all times. Guests may visit the horse and mule corrals. Again, use caution. People are responsible for their own safety on the ranch and the ranch will not be held liable for any accidents which might occur.
Fishing: If you wish to fish in the river, you must obtain a license from the State of Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. The most common fish is catfish, however, there are some protected fish species in the river....Read more

We stayed in the RockHousefor 3 nights in October. What an amazing place! Every morning we got up early to watch the sunrise on the mountains and we would climb up on the rocks and watch the sunset...breathtaking. It was so quite and peaceful. We also enjoyed our little visit from Luke (the owners dog)...he helped make us feel like we were at home with our dog. He walked the property with us and sat up on the rocks with us to watch the sunset. I would recommend this property to anyone! Thanks for a relaxing, peaceful anniversary get-a-way!

My wife and I stayed at the Moab Rockhouse for my birthday, and wow, what a treat! Such an incredible place and the custom windows set right into the rock are pretty amazing! The staff was great and very helpful. Can't wait to go back!
