Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Moab - Moab Cabin

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to our Moab cabin. We love the great outdoors and adventure. By fact that you are here, we know you do as well. We tried camping with tents and sleeping bags when we were younger, and while, we respect those who enjoy camping we discovered that the creature comforts or lack thereof made the difference in our partnership with Nature. At our last family camp out and after burning a hole in our new eight man tent and burning my hand with our new gas lantern scrambling inside to escape a Summer rain I looked at my wife and asked if she was having fun. Reviewing the muddy mess of our camp kitchen and inevitable cleanup she thought a moment and said “No…are you?”

That was in the early 1990s and we subsequently set a plan to interact with Nature on more comfortable terms. Creature comforts and isolated from the hubbub of crowds, our cabin offers a soft gentle escape from the city and stress of everyday life. Unique to the arid geology of Moab the cabin has:Three bedrooms. Comfortable soft down comforters,

• Two full bathrooms. Linens included.

• Hot showers, running water after a day of adventure

• Modern kitchen with all the kitchen gadgets


• Fire pit for roasting smors (subject to fire restrictions by the forest service)

• Fifty-two inch flat screen with family oriented inventory of movies

• Good cell phone service

• Wrap around deck with Spectacular views

• Low light pollution. Night skies within the darkest triangle in the continental US

• Hiking/biking trails on property and nearby

• Rustic Charm

• Isolated from crowds, a half-mile private lane into cabin.

• Warm days, cool nights

• Parking for large vehicles and trailers. (A meadow)

Located off the Sand flats road on the Wilson Mesa at 7300 feet elevation the cabin is a perfect base camp for visiting the area’s attractions. Near the trail heads of Porcupine trail, Kokopeli trail, slick rock, (world famous as the best mountain biking and hiking spot in the USA) and Finns N Things. The cabin is close to Moab’s Famous off roading and mountain biking locations, which include Arches national park, Canyon lands, Warner Lake, LaSal mountain range, and Castle Valley. Available for short (3 days 3 nights) or long (1-2 week) vacation stays. 1700 sq. feet of modern convenience but still a cabin. Restriction Notice. All off road vehicles including motorcycles need to be trailered into property and trailered out of property. No off road use within the parameters of the half mile lane into the cabin.

Breathtaking views of the LaSal Mountains from one deck, the Moab rim from another and Arches national park from yet a third.13 miles from Moab and the Colorado River. No light or sound pollution; you will experience peace and quiet. Starting at sunup and lasting all day, humming birds vie for nectar from feeders on the porch. Sometimes so many they perch on your shoulder waiting their turn. Please watch the video above and check photos from cabin adventures. Read some of the testimonials/references from previous guests. Click on our blog link below to view more photos and excerpts from other guests. Call or email today to check availability as the cabin generally reserves 4-6 weeks in advance. We welcome you to the area and Susie and I are genuinely pleased that you are considering the cabin for your get away. We promise you won’t be disappointed, on the contrary you will have a vacation to remember for life.

About John Lundberg

I am a dirt biker, my wife is a hiker. We both love the outdoors but require the comfort of a good bed, hot shower, full kitchen and clean restroom to enjoy it. I have ridden my dirt bike all over the rocky mountains and in particularly the Southwest US. Moab is by far my favorite spot. The diversity of the trails is unparallelled . From above the tree line, inside Aspen forests, pines and then the red rock desert of the valley is spectacular. World famous trails are too many to list but they abound in the Moab area. My wife hikes as many miles as I ride just not as fast. Her favorite trail in the world is slick rock. We enjoy having the grand kids visit, explore and seek adventure during the day then watch a family movie at night with hot cocoa. Restriction Notice. All off road vehicles including motorcycles need to be trailered into property and trailered out of property. No off road use within the paramenters of the half mile lane into the cabin.

John Lundberg purchased this cabin in 2008

Why John Lundberg chose Utah

I spent years traveling to Moab pulling a trailer full of dirt bikes, stayed in motel after motel and finally realized I liked the area so much I bought the cabin in order to base camp out of it for all our activities. Restriction Notice. All off road vehicles including motorcycles need to be trailered into property and trailered out of property. No off road use within the paramenters of the half mile lane into the cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is near the trail heads of Porcupine, kokopeli, whole enchilada, finns n things among others. We can ride or hike from nearby the front door to some of the most beautiful vistas in the world. The cabin is very private, sitting at the end of a 1/2 mile private lane. We never tire of watching the sunset from the Castle Valley Overlook. Restriction Notice. All off road vehicles including motorcycles need to be trailered into property and trailered out of property. No off road use within the paramenters of the half mile lane into the cabin.

Secluded, Relaxing & Scenic!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property to serve as a "base camp" during a man-trip to Moab and the surrounding national parks. We could not have been happier with the location and seclusion of this cabin! It was exactly what we had hoped it would be, A quiet, scenic getaway. The cabin is about a 45 minute drive from Moab but, it is perhaps one of the most scenic drives you could ask for! We enjoyed every trip to and from the cabin. I will suggest that you rent a Jeep or other four wheel drive vehicle for your trip. Sand Flats road is actually in very good shape for where this road is but, if you travel up to the cabin through Castle Valley, you will be needing a 4WD vehicle. This road is not for the non-adventurous. it is very scenic but, a bit rough in sections.

The cabin itself was great. Comfy furniture and beds, an amazing wrap-around deck and nice size bedrooms. Very cozy and welcoming. really enjoyed watching amazing sunsets and some of the clearest night skies you will ever see. Just breathtaking. We routinely had free-range cows all over the property. They were very friendly and entertaining. Be prepared to be out of breath a lot. The high elevations takes some getting used to if you live at low elevation. We were all in pretty good shape and the elevation always let us know who was boss.

My ONLY complaint, more of a caution than a complaint, is that pretty much all of the windows suck. They will fall down when you open them, some have no screens and some the screens fell out. So, if you open any of the windows just be careful. This in no way affected our comfort or took anything away from our stay. There was one cabinet door in the kitchen that was also on the verge of falling off.

So, if you are looking for some adventure, some seclusion and grand views, look no further! John, the owner, was more than accommodating and was happy to answer any questions that we had in a timely manner. He also suggested some great area restaurants. I WILL stay at this cabin again, and I will be counting the days. I truly hated to leave...

Owner's Response: Gary, thank you for your review. Awesome that you took the time to write it. As far as the windows go, you are correct, we have replaced two and will, as resources permit, continue replacing the rest of them. We will also get some screens as the current ones are too old and undependable. Didn't know about the cabinet door...will have it looked at. When we read reviews such as yours we feel like our efforts are worthwhile. We recognize there is always room for improvement and we do so when able to. We look forward to your next visit.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Moab so we didn't know what to expect. Driving up the Mountain to the Cabin was very exciting. It took longer than expected due me photographing the scenic views!!! (Not complaining) the cabin was perfect for the 4 of us (2 couples). It was fun picking out our rooms when we arrived. We like to watch the sunrise so we picked the room on the left, our friends like to watch the sunset so they picked the room to the right! We loved the wrap around porch with all of the seating, the ability to grill in the evenings, the quietness and stargazing. The road to the cabin is a little rocky but it adds to the adventure. The drive to and from the cabin is aprxo. an hour so we had to plan our time to our excursions effectively. If you live the mountains and the great outdoors, I would recommend the Moab Cabin!

Wonderful stay, nice and cool!

  • 5 of 5

We come to Moab every year and always expect it to be broiling hot - it was wonderful to retreat each evening to a beautiful cabin up in the mountains, sometimes even 15 degrees cooler than in town! Amazing sunsets, cool breezes, and a big wrap-around porch made this year extra special for us. Yes, the drive is rocky, but if you've spent any time driving through these mountains you'll be just fine. Make sure you have four wheel drive, and in the event of heavy rains, take the driveway very slowly. John was very responsive to any questions I had. We plan to return soon!

Spring break

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet place with stars and views galore plus lots to explore right near where we were staying. We were a family of four with 10-11 year olds, a lab and a shorter grandad visit. We loved our stay...the end came too quickly! A herd of elk passed through Wilson Mesa when we were there! We have a stock Toyota Land Cruiser, and the road was no concern. All but the lowest clearance vehicles will be fine. We mtn biked and did hikes right from the cabin area. The wood heating was awesome, but there are plenty of other options! The cabin was perfectly supplied. The deck is super cool! We hope to return someday!

Owner's Response: Tina, thank you for your kind review. It brings us great joy to read such reviews. We also note that if looking for perfection, we will always come up short... but those (like you) that have a sense of adventure and realistic approach of what to expect of a cabin WAY off the beaten path seem to love it. For that we are grateful. The road is an ongoing concern but we have had two years in which we have hired heavy equipment to improve the lane. We even looked at making it a gravel road but that was extremely expensive and didn't come with any type of warranty. Not like the taxpayer can just be charged again and an improvement made. The private lane is susceptible to weather related conditions and while most of the time nearly any vehicle can make it there are months (like April) that due diligence dictates a high clearance vehicle if not a four-wheel drive. Please visit us again as we have a growing list of repeat guests and we would love to see you and yours visit again.

Wish we had more time

  • 5 of 5

We selected this cabin for our 7th annual college reunion trip (5 men). We've always used vacation rental homes and out of all our rentals, I have never encountered a more earnestly accommodating or conscientious owner. Our rental coincided with the May-Pac fight and he went out of his way to make sure when the opening bell struck we'd have the PPV event flowing thru his Directv satellite dish onto the flat-screen TV. Highly unusual situation, but it's a testament to his dedication to guest satisfaction.

As other reviewers have noted, the drive up to the cabin from Moab is ~40 minutes, sections were paved and others were not. A 4x4 vehicle is not necessary; any plain SUV will suffice and more for the ground clearance than for power. We had good weather though and I could see how parts of the drive could get more challenging if it rained hard enough and thus demand 4x4. For the time guzzler the drive up is, it really is dramatic and far from a bore/chore (but not dangerous), becoming part of the adventure. The cabin is truly ideal for MTB/dirt bike & ATV enthusiasts.

The wrap-around deck with wrap-around bench is surprisingly spacious and inviting. There's even a built-in kitchen-level counter by the gas grill perfectly designed for outdoor food prep overlooking the mesa. We worked the kitchen hard and it met our needs with flying colors (loved the pizza stone). Igniter on the grill was broken but the kitchen had 2 lighters and there was a spare tank in case we ran out of gas. The air at the cabin is delicious with near-zero noise pollution from town. Contra other reviewer's experience we didn't have a dust problem. To sum up, this is a fabulous cabin even better if you bring a rustic spirit to match its rustic charms.

Moab solitude.

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a great retreat from the crowds in a terrific setting and if you have a four wheel drive vehicle this place is for you. The owner John, is very engaging and has been upfront about the only drawback of this cabin. It is difficult to get to. (On the other hand, that is part of its charm!). The road that Google suggests, Sand Flats, comes in from the West and North and is a legitimate jeep road in many sections. We arrived late in the day during a rain storm and between the narrow, rocky, muddy surface and the sharp curves that hug small canyon walls, it got a little exciting. It didn't take us long, however, to discover a much easier way in from the South. I highly recommend, for those less adventurous souls, that the trek up LaSal Mountain Loop Road to a much shorter segment of Sand Flats is preferable. The final quarter mile to the cabin is a rocky and muddy road that turns off of Sand Flats. Again I highly recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle with ample clearance.

The access to the property and the property setting are beautiful on their own. The porch offers great views of Canyonlands, Arches, and the LaSal mountains. Take time to hike around the property, enjoy sunrise and sunset and the great night sky.

The cabin itself is very clean, we'll decorated and equipped, and very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked. We used the queen bed in the back bedroom and found it very comfortable.

This is a great place to relax and enjoy the best nature has to offer. It took us about an hour and a half to get from it to either Arches or Canyonlands. Those parks are awesome and to some degree when you stay at the property you feel a bit like you never left them. That works out well since, at least in our case, between the road conditions and the travel times we sometimes felt we had to leave the National Parks a little early so we could avoid traveling the jeep road in the dark and rain.

Bottom line, if you are a bit adventuresome this property is a great place to stay. You'll make some unexpected memories and have some great stories.
