About this listing
Private little guest suite (bedroom and bathroom) that is like having a small apt.; for independent guests to come & go as they like. Situated in a very quiet, COUNTRY neighborhood that has scenic views and dark skies, we are 3+ miles from the Moab City center. Comfortable bed, beautiful and private redwood deck and outside patio with room for 2 people to have a very comfortable and relaxing stay in Moab. If you enjoy nature, you will really like it here. Did I mention that we are RURAL?
Though this is listed as a private room, it is like having your own little apartment - the suite has its own entrance and deck and you won't be entering our home to get to and from your space. It is a clean & light-filled, very quiet and private guest room with private bath - separate entrance from secluded east facing deck - with views.
The bed is a Kingsdown pillow-top queen (made up with high thread count cotton sheets) that is VERY comfortable, wifi, cable HD TV with a zillion channels, small fridge, electric kettle and coffee maker - with plenty of parking.
Great hosts attend to your needs (or leave you alone, if that is what you desire). Very close to the beautiful 18 hole Moab golf course and a large park w/disc golfing and numerous riding/hiking/jeeping nearby trails.
Beautiful views of the rim and the mountains. Located 3+ miles from the center of Moab, along a year around creek with more shade trees than you can count and horses grazing in the pasture nearby.
No smoking in or near the house and no pets, please.
During the high seasons of the year, we collect a surcharge of $15 when guests stay just one night - unless there is only one night available between other guests.
As said above, there is a dorm fridge, a coffee pot, an electric kettle and a very few cups, bowls, glasses and utensils in the room for guests' use - for say, a continental breakfast. HOWEVER, this is not a kitchenette. If you are looking for a place in which you can make meals, this is not it - we don't provide a radar-range nor a toaster oven.
Their bedroom and private bathroom, their private east facing deck with patio and a large part of our 3 acre yard and the private area where they will be parking.
Interaction with Guests
We usually greet guests when they arrive and give them a 10 or 15 minute run through of information about the room and the area, etc. Once in awhile we "bump" into the guests around the yard a time or two and we are always available to the guests by phone and text and if they knock on the door of our part of the house.
Quiet, private and scenic rural area. There is a really beautiful City Park nearby that is seldom used, just beyond it is an 18 hole disc golf course and there are plenty of quiet areas to walk/hike/bike all around here. We are about 3 miles from the center of town; the nearest restaurant is about a mile away.
The only public transport in Moab is a taxi service and bike shuttles; you need a car to get around - unless you have a bike and the ability to ride up the hill from town to here (several hundred feet elevation gain).
Other Things to Note
The guest suite has facilities for our guests to make a continental breakfast; we do not supply breakfast - just coffee, tea, milk and sugar.
Please no smoking indoors or near the house - and no pets. You'll need to leave your bike outdoors - we have safe, covered storage and a place to wash your toys. We have a small fridge, drip coffee pot, electric hot pot and a few bowls, glasses, cups and utensils in the room; HOWEVER this is not a kitchenette - not a place to make meals. Those who stay with us eat out for most of their meals and occasionally have a continental breakfast in the room or on the private outdoor deck near their entrance to the room.
About the Host, Mary
It's difficult for me to live without clean/fresh air, big blue skies, daily hikes around the rocks, freshly picked vegetables and high thread count bedsheets! If I can travel anywhere it is Italy; but I am beginning to realize that I enjoy a hiking trip into the canyons around Moab nearly as much - it is so much simpler and just as awe inspiring. Fewer crowds, too. For my favorite meal, I head to Eddie McStiff's for the salmon cobb salad, and for music, I listen to Pink Martini (my friends say I am a groupie, having been to eight of their concerts).
We'll take care of you here - as you like. Just enough attention, or very little - it's up to you. We know the area well and can give you plenty of tips about great places to visit while here in this outdoor wonderland. Mostly, we want to make sure you enjoy your stay in Moab, our family's home for six decades.
