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
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.
What a wonderful place. Super friendly and knowledgeable employee. It's very well maintained and such a pleasant way to spend your afternoon! Thanks Hole n the Rock ❤️ keep up the great experience! 👍❇️
My husband's family is from a nearby town. On our way back home we stopped here and had so much fun. Hole N" The Rock is definitely worth going too. I love the house. The creativity of a home in a cave inspires me. If the home were for sale to live in I'd try my very best to convince my husband to buy it:)
I stopped at this attraction on my way to Arches National Park. I was underwhelmed by the attraction and unimpressed by the workers. I was harassed about having a service dog at their outdoor facility. There were signs saying "No dogs allowed" but not a single sign recognizing service dogs and their reserved rights. When I stated that she was a service animal, which was already clear by the vest that she was wearing (with an organization logo on it ensuring credibility), the worker sarcastically responded "well I guess you can go then." These people need to be educated about the ADA and the rights that are reserved for service animals. I should be able to feel welcome at facilities and attractions across the nation, not criticized for having a service animal with me. Extremely disappointed at this rude behavior and will not be returning.
Very interesting tourist stop! Their famous “12 minute tour“ was informative but VERY rushed. My husband and I were the only ones in our tour but it was still hurried along. It would have been much better if we were allowed to actually “look at” the things pointed out, not just allowed to “see them”- know what I mean? No photos are to be taken on site! Other buildings in site too including 3 more gift shops. Kind of hokey, but that’s our style. Amazing bison and keep made of spare parts!
