About This Listing
Private little guest suite that is like having a small apt.; for guests to come & go as they like. Situated in a very quiet, COUNTRY neighborhood that has scenic views. Comfortable bed & just enough room for 2 people to have a great stay in Moab.
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/disk golfing and numerous riding/hiking/jeeping nearby trails.
Beautiful views of the rim and the mountains. Located 4 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 just 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.
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 disk 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.
Mary communicated with us ahead of time and was waiting when we pulled up at her beautiful place. The bed was comfortable, the room was very clean, and there was coffee/tea for us in the morning. The environment was very relaxing and only a short drive from downtown Moab. I would definitely stay here again!
Unfortunately we did not get to meet our host at all. Family matters arose and she needed to be away for the weekend we were there. We were greeted by the host's husband, but other than a few minutes with him, we had no other contact with Mary. From the reviews ivecread on her page I am sure she would have been very welcoming.
Mary has a lovely home and we were the first couple to stay in her new 2nd air bnb guest room and it was great!! We had a nice balcony to sit on and the air con was fantastic in the room and well needed as it reached 100 degrees!! Mary was very friendly and made us feel very welcome!! We will definitely be back to Moab!!
Very nice, private room. Out of town in a quiet area near a park. (Get directions ahead of time.) Mary had my room ready even though I arrived late. It was a comfy place to come home to after a day of hiking and sightseeing. Microwave, electric hot water pot, fridge and tv available. I didn't get to meet Mary due to my busy schedule.
Mary greeted us when we arrived and gave us a brief tour of the apartment and was very helpful suggesting restaurants and must do things in the area. The apartment was just like the photos and description. It was perfect for our two night stay. Location was ideal.
We loved Arches and spent most of one day there. If you walk the Delicate Trail Arch, we would suggest to start early, by 7am at latest. It is well worth the hike to see Delicate Arch. Another favorite was Landscape Arch. We also spent a little time in Canyonland. A must see is Mesa Arch. Beautiful!
My husband I also spent time riding our bikes along the Colorado River which we really enjoyed.
Mary suggested viewing petroglyphs on Potash Road which we did and found that very interesting.
We would highly recommend staying with Mary if you are planning a short trip to Moab!
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.
