Hole N'' The Rock - Review
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
This is a unique place to stop with all the many outside exhibits. The rock house is really cool. My rating of 3 is because the 12 minute tour....although it gave information on the husband and wife who worked hard to make the house....was less than 8 minutes and very rushed. The girl who gave tour moved us along too quickly and wouldn't let us look around after rushing us. Ended tour by throwing pointer stick on counter and said..."if you liked tour I gave, there's a tip jar" Improved customer service/professionalism would have rated this a 5
The Hole N’ the Rock was super cool! It was great to see the house and it was a unique experience. The other sights and shops were nice, however, the zoo was terrible. The animals were in dirty pens, with little water and their pens were a disaster. The animals weren’t out and about because it was just too hot, and the living conditions for them shouldn’t be acceptable. The zoo offers feeding for some of them, and when we went to feed them some ran up like they were starving. Some of the animals were actually crying and whining because it was hot and they seemed miserable. It’s a cool place with neat animals, however they should invest in better areas for them. It’s a great idea and good for tourism, but the animals need to be treated better.
Very interesting and fun place to see. You get a tour of the home that was built inside the rock as well as a fun little petting zoo and three gift shops. The people working the tour new a lot of information but it would have been nice to have a bit more hospitality.
Pretty neat place out int middle of no where. A big rock that's got a shopping cent and set up like a house. Can't take pictures on inside. Do charge a tour fee and have a little animal walk through and do charge a fee. Kinda cool though. Everything is pricey..
The rock house was great. The tour guide was boring and rushed. The zoo animals were very confined and looked depressed. Beautiful white buffalo with mate and new baby stuck in the very small pen was cruel. So sad...
