This luxurious Moab Hideaway, just 15 miles southeast of Moab, offers complete privacy with stunning views of snow-capped mountains, red rock, and green pasture---red rocks views from the entry porch, green pasture off the front porch and 12,482' Mt. Tukuhnikivatz off the back porch. Perfect recreation location with Arches and Canyonlands National Parks a short drive away, and rafting, hiking, mountain biking and a host of other activities nearby. Superb views of the Moab Rim and nearby La Sal Mountains and their more-than-12,000-foot peaks abound on this amazing property. This log and stone residence is situated on 1.5 acres on a hillside overlooking the Pack Creek Ranch. Enveloped by native pinion, juniper and sage, flooding the 3,344 square foot interior with the aroma of the southwestern desert, you will enjoy a superior resort experience at this elegant and comfortable retreat.

The home has in-floor radiant heating as well as Mitsubishi air conditioning and heating, lovely flagstone floors, stereo-system with Sonos amp and built-in speakers in several rooms.

The main-level master suite has a vaulted log ceiling, French doors, a walkout to the south-side patio, and a heavenly king bed. The second bedroom doubles as an office with a Pottery Barn Deluxe queen sofa bed. The lower-level bedroom with queen bed has access to the fresh desert air through the French door that opens to a patio.

Flagstone patios on the north, south and west gird the home, and a beautiful wood deck extends from the north side of the living room.

About Robert Thompson

We built this home in 1992 and only the best craftsmen worked on our home in the Pack Creek Ranch enclave. We designed the home with patios or decks on three sides because the home is at the base of the La Sal mountains, nestled among the Pinyon-Junipers with superb views in every direction.  We love coming here to hike, canoe, bicycle and just relax -- we hope you do too!  Guy and Jeanine

Great place, but be wary of the owner. He uses "alternative facts."

Owner's Response: Hi Chris, the invoice we sent for $50 (which you still have not paid) was to help cover the excess cleaning costs for the mess you left. Your group trashed the cabin, leaving leaking trash bags full of beer bottles everywhere, food scraps outside, etc. Also, you texted our local caretaker and offered him $200 cash (which is less than 1/2 of our listed rate) to stay an extra night without notifying us, or VRBO, in an attempt to avoid paying the full nightly rate, service fees, and taxes.

Secluded and quiet in a architecturally fitting home to its surroundings. Just lovely and serene.

  • 5 of 5

One criticism is that the glassware is limited. More small glassware needed.

Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

We came out with our son to visit the Parks and celebrate his 18th birthday. The house is beautiful, set beneath the LaSal mountains, and surrounded by deer. Two nice bedrooms - perfect for us.

If I'm being picky I would mention 3 things. First, it is a hide-away, meaning it's 25 minutes of driving to the center of Moab. You're in the west so it's pretty much a long drive to everywhere, but if you want busy Moab, this isn't it.

We had a number of lights out at the house, particularly on the path leading to the house. When the caretaker called I mentioned this and they were fixed right away. Good thing because it's mighty dark here at night.

Finally, the drive from Moab requires vigilance or you will have a deer in your grill. We saw deer on every trip to or from town, and about half the time they were crossing the road.

All in all, we enjoyed the house and the area very much.

Outstanding Views and Comfortable home *****

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The home is very comfortable and private. Fully equipped. It was awesome sitting outside & breathing in the fresh air & gazing at the stars in the sky that were brilliant.

The caretaker, Steve, is also very helpful. We left a few items behind and he overnighted them to us in Florida

Close enough to the town of Moab, but far enough to stay away from "city" lights!

Secluded Great Location

  • 3 of 5

Positive is its a Beautifully Designed Mountain Home and Great Location! Four adults rented this home for a 3 night stay. This home is very secluded and very quiet most of the time. It backs up to a hill where you can sit and enjoy watching, Chipmunks, Squirrels, and Rabbits run around the hill side, while birds fly over head and sing in the trees. There is 1 King size bed upstairs with an unattached bathroom, and 1 Queen size bedroom down stairs. Only other sleeping arrangements would be for pull out sofas. This home is nice, BUT could use some TLC! Walking in at first it appeared to be impressive, but on a closer look Very Unkept! Cob Webs All Over the small corner desk in the main living area where the stereo system is. Dust "bunnies" and cob webs in the Master Bedroom and Closets, with hand prints on mirror. Please be advised there is Only 1 Robe in the master closet, and 2 down stairs, strange to only see 3! The trash compactor, which is listed to use on the instructions, does Not Work! When you pull open the Trash Compactor, there is Duct tape all across it stating Out Of Order! Molded Bread and Chips in kitchen cabinet drawer, which we threw out. Don't pull out the drawer in front of the sink!! Large stain on the Pottery Barn Love Seat in the main floor office. Shower in the downstairs bathroom, Hot Water Handle falls off in hand. As many days as this home appears to be rented, I can not understand how it could be so "unkept," maybe someone different needs to be looking into cleaning it. Tried several times to call the phone number listed upon check out to notify someone we were leaving at 9:30, but the number would not work, ended up sending an email to Robert. I'm sorry to give this home such a negative review, but for the price listed/paid I DID Expect A Higher Quality Presentation. I do understand that owners are at the mercy of whomever they have taking care of their homes when they are not close enough to view it on a regular basis.

Owner's Response: We are stunned to learn of the condition of the Moab Cabin as you described. I contacted he care taker and discussed each item, and we have taken steps to immediately address every single thing you mentioned. I also contacted our phone provider to ensure that the phone number is working, and I will emphasis both my cell and landline contacts in the future home instructions. Safe travels! Robert
