About Hole N'' The Rock, Moab
There is a lot going in this unusual attraction. The hole is basically a 5000 square foot home-cave inside a huge sandstone rock. Once upon a time, it was a fortunate place for the unwealthy Christensen family to sleep in. Over 20 years Albert and Gladys Christensen built it into a place worthy of a millionaire, with 14 rooms, a 65' chimney and deep rock bathtub… all if it built around huge sandstone pillars! Their graves can be found inside a small cove near the home. Visitors will find a gift shop, a large collection of Lyle Nichols metal sculptures, old mining tools and artefacts, a Native American trading post, an ice-cream store, and a rather unexpected petting zoo. The animals at the zoo include a camel, an ostrich, a donkey, a sheep, goats, zebra, emu, raccoons, alpacas, and various birds. You can feed the animals. The house is easy enough to spot - the cliff outside the cave has 'Hole N' The Rock' spelled at in huge white letters.

Hole N'' The Rock, Moab Reviews
Fun experience for the whole family! There is a zoo and a tour of the house in the rock that cost money but there's so many other cool things to wander around and see, you needn't spend a dime. Also there is a general store and a very nice Navajo art and gift shop.
We got to this destination at around 2:45 and were really excited to get to see the tour, as this has been something we've wanted to do for about 3 years now. Anyway, we all get out of the car and have to use the bathroom. We walk into two different buildings and can't find them. No problem, we just asked one of the shopkeepers. We go, and walk around looking at trinkets. Right as we exit the shop, we are told that they are completely closing down for the day. The hours are clearly stated as 9-5, and there had been plenty of opportunities for the employees to tell us about the earlier closing time. We weren't able to go on the 12 minute tour, and were instead rushed out of the gates. A highly disappointing visit overall.
The cave house tour was interesting. The original owner had quite a vision for a house. We were very sad for all the animals on exhibit. I'm positive that they never get out of their small enclosures. They seemed well fed but depressed. The house tour could probably stand alone without the animals living such a tourtured solitary lives. Very very sad....
Very cool place to visit. Would be cool if they made a small hotel. They would sell out.the history of this place was awesome to learn.
Great little area to stop if your near by like we were in moab and stopped here the tour of the house is really intresting but what i really reccomend here is the little feeding zoo they have Kramer the Camel is the man.
