Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday mobile home in Thompson - Ghost town !

Ideal for a couple

In the center of Thompson Springs ghost town! ONE MY THREE PROPERTIES HERE . Quiet and peaceful. This is not for the person who loves rush hour in the big city! There is a Shell station in town and that's it! Bring groceries with you when you come. Moab and Arches National park is about a half hour drive to the south. This place is really all about freedom. If you decide to ride an ATV through Town, nobody bothers you. If you decide to ride your bicycle down old hwy 6 you might pass a car, but chances are you won't.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

About Jim lindsey

I love adventure and beautiful scenery, open spaces, no crowds and lots of wild life. My idea of relaxing is not waiting in line at Disney world (although it has its place)

Jim lindsey purchased this mobile home in 2010

Why Jim lindsey chose Utah

I bought this property because its not handy to shopping and air pollution and traffic jams and noise and confusion and stress... hundreds of miles of unfenced public property! serenity!!!!

What makes this mobile home unique

You can go hundreds of miles on an ATV and not cross private property

Very impressed! This was just the quiet cozy getaway that my husband and I were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay here! It was very clean and stocked with all that we needed. We were looking for something quiet, cozy, and away from it all and that is exactly what we got. We bbqed, watched old movies, had a fire in the fire pit, and explored the surrounding areas. Definitely recommend.

Everyting We Were Hoping For

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in this charming, very reasonably priced unit. As other reviewers have stated, the home was immaculate and well supplied with the necessities. It was the perfect size for the 2 of us. It is located about a 1/2 hour drive from the National Parks' entrance gates, Moab, and restaurants/shopping. This wasn't a problem for us. We planned our days so that we could follow up a National Park visit or other area hike/scenic drive with a stop in town for dinner at a restaurant or a quick stop at a grocery store to restock provisions. We were happy to return to our quiet "home away from home" after witnessing the crowds in town!

The Thompson Spring location made it an easy drive to the less visited Goblin Valley, Little Wildhorse Canyon, and Green River. The changing scenery in this part of Utah is amazing! The gentleman who works with Jim is a Moab local and had lots of suggestions for other "Off the Beaten Path" places to visit.

The Dillard RV Park has ATVs available to rent. We were fortunate to be able to arrange a guided tour with Jim. It was one of the highlights of our trip! Both the town of Thompson Springs and Saga Canyon have an amazing history!

We loved our stay in our unit and would definitely book again if we revisit the area. I've been telling everyone (even strangers in Moab) about our wonderful stay. Thanks Jim!!

PS Jim and Sandy have a number of other units in the park (mostly 2 and 3 bedroom if I'm remembering correctly) . Renting a combination of these units would be wonderful for larger groups travelling together.

QUIET ONE BEDROOM UNIT IN THE BOOK CLIFFS

  • 5 of 5

The one bedroom park model cabin was perfect for the two of us. We started each morning with a pot of coffee, watching the sun rise over the Book Cliffs. We spent a couple of days in the Moab area, a day at Black Canyon of the Gunnison, a day at Goblin State Park, so the unit is convenient to many parks. And the area of Thompson Springs is very quiet. We really enjoyed that! The furniture was comfie, as was the queen sized bed. The unit was nicely equipped and very clean. Both the bedroom and living room has overhead fans, and so we were able to enjoy the fresh air. A pleasant surprise was the quality of the water from Thompson Springs. We had brought bottled water but did not need it at all. We will definitely return!

Home Base While Exploring

  • 5 of 5

This little house is located in a quiet RV park. Tastefully decorated, it is in good condition. Jim is from Tennessee, a friendly host, and southern hospitality. There are local sites to explore, ATV's to rent, and trails to ride. Arches National Park is within easy driving distance. Recommended.

Great, clean place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. The owners were very responsive and had the place ready before we arrived. The town was an interesting place to walk around. The ghost town was neat to see as well. We stayed here for our visit to Moab. It was only about a 30 min drive to get to Arches. We enjoyed not being right in town. Our kids loved being able to explore the old town and one of their favorite parts was song the trains and putting coins on the track. I would definitely recommend staying here especially if you have little children.
