Overview

About the property

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

Welcome to our Moab cabin.

CAUTION: During the months of March and early April as well as November, weather at the cabin can be fickle and it is possible to receive snow. We strongly recommend that if planning on coming during these times you have a four wheel drive or high clearance vehicle.

Cauton # 2 Because the cabin is set away on private land, our cleaning service requires one day between bookings. Same day departures of previous guests and arrival of new guests is too difficult to schedule so when looking at the calendar please recognize the dates available and pick a date one day following the previous booking. If you are inflexible with your scheduling, let us know and I can ask for exceptions of the cleaning lady.

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 an 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

• BBQ

• 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 trailer-ed 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 Moab

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.

Moab Heaven

  • 5 of 5

A mountain biking buddy and I finally decided to make the trip from the Southeast to see what all the hype about slickrock was. In looking for a place that was to be a central base for 10 days, we wanted something that was not in the middle of Moab and offered a decent altitude since we came from a whopping 250 feet above sea level. At roughly 7,300 feet, John's cabin fit all of the requirements, and I booked it. On arrival, I was a bit surprised to find that it took 40-45 minutes to get from town to the cabin. However, after the first day, this perceived concern turned into one of the cabin's greatest benefits for us. You are reasonably isolated from all of the noise, lights, and people that are always present in Moab. Situated literally a stone's throw from Cougar Canyon, and a short hike or bike ride from Castle Valley, there is phenomenal scenery to be had without ever cranking a vehicle. If you are an astronomy buff, bring your telescope...though I have travelled a bit, I have never been anywhere with virtually no light pollution.....to view the Milky Way, you need only walk outside and look up. With the canyon and the Moab escarpment visible from the front portion of the deck, and the La Sal mountains visible from the side, it almost makes you not want to leave. The cabin is well outfitted with all the creature comforts, and while it is still to be considered a "cabin", it is more like a home. But we didn't come to sit on the porch! The best way to the cabin takes you directly through the Slickrock Recreation Area which is the main thing we came to Moab for, and it deserves it's status as one of the world's best biking and off roading areas. In addition to three days of mountain biking, we spent one day climbing in the La Sals, two days on dirt bikes, and two days hiking/climbing in both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks....all within very short driving distance. Owner John Lundberg knows the area like a local and in every instance was fast to respond and invaluable in recommending sights and trails. Aside from adding a hot tub to soak the day's pain away, there is not one thing I would change.....only one recommendation. It is easy to schedule all of your time doing the incredible amount of things available in the area, but I would encourage you to have some unplanned time to simply slow down, sit, look, and listen. The botanical and biological diversity of this high desert is amazing....but you'll miss it if you're moving too fast!

Owner's Response: Calvin, it is people like you that make this whole cabin rental thing fun for us. We absolutely love it when guests appreciate what the cabin is. We have actually had to fight the natural instinct to always develop and improve the place. Family and friends consistently tell us that the location is off the beaten trail of other accommodations and one of the main reasons they enjoy it so much. They (and we) want to keep it as such. We know there is always lots to improve on but are grateful to guests like you that consider the area world class when it comes to views and adventure. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We hope you come again and bring some family. Honestly one of my favorite things to do is to decompress on the cabin deck and as you say just look and listen. We have considered a hot tub but the dynamics of potential weather related problems with the plumbing have always caused us pause. We even looked at a little four man portable one with minimal piping but it didn't seem sturdy enough for the rigorous weather that can occur in the spring and fall. I will revisit that idea with your suggestion however and consider it again.

Comfort in the Middle of Nowhere

  • 4 of 5

This rustic cabin made for a very enjoyable trip for us. The secluded location is more a benefit than a drawback - as long as you plan accordingly. Town is a good 45 minutes away via a dirt road that is surprisingly well maintained, but not without holes and exposed rocks, so you'll need at a minimum a high clearance vehicle, preferably all wheel drive to get through. Be warned some of the sections of road have hair-raising drop offs, not for the faint of heart but unbelievably stunning vistas.

The cabin itself is quite comfortable, with hot water, heat, and the all-important washer and dryer. There isn't any air conditioning but being up on the mesa it's much cooler than in town and there was a nice breeze most days we were there. Just keep the windows with screens in them open to keep it cooler. The kitchen is fairly well stocked equipment-wise. The beds were honestly more comfortable than most hotel beds are!

Please be careful on the steps - they are slick and we slipped off towards the bottom of the stairs. The toilets both flush but the upstairs toilet will continue to run unless you flip the handle back to the up position. The bottom toilet has buttons you push on its top, so you have to push pretty hard on the larger button to get it to flush.

The lack of a dishwasher means you're at the mercy of previous visitors for clean dishes, and I had to wash several of them before we used them. The cabin isn't spotless, but once you're here you'll understand why. You're on a mesa in the middle of Sand Flats Recreation area, so don't expect it to be. The beds are clean, the bathrooms and kitchen are pretty clean, but otherwise there's some dust. The GPS to the cabin works pretty well but we found his directions about setting the odometer at the guard shack the best directions to follow. Don't try to find it in the dark, at least not on your first trip out, and make sure you load up on groceries in town before you come out. Owner is responsive and easy to work with.

There is a cattle ranch in the valley below, so expect to hear mooing during the day and evening, though they do quiet down at night. Make sure you go out a couple of hours after sunset to enjoy the stars. They are jaw-droppingly beautiful and if the moon isn't out you can see the Milky Way. Lastly we went to Arches and Dead Horse Point but we thought Sand Flats area was every bit as gorgeous and without the crowds. Enjoy!

Beautiful seclusion

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time. The property and house are beautiful and the drive through the park to the house is as amazing as anything you will see in the National Parks. There is plenty of great hiking and mountain biking nearby. We will be coming back.

Incredible views, stars and comfort.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is perfect. For being in the high country it is completely comfortable. Simple kitchen is everything you need to enjoy a great meal, home cooked with friends. The 2 bathrooms provide space for people to have easy access when needed. The place is well kept, everything is nice and clean and you can tell that the owners care about the experience of their guests. Then there is the property. The views are amazing. The sunsets and stars at night will leave you breathless. Even the drive up from town is cool. You truly feel as if you have stepped into the prehistoric on your way to the cabin. I have tons of pics that I can't wait to get through. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to have comfort and nature rolled into an awesome property that is in the middle of all Moab has to offer. Will absolutely be back!
