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

  • Been here recently, I was very impressed that someone, built it out of tools and explosives, it's some serious determination, dedication, effort and patience to build a rock house. The tour was amazing and I bought several of novelty shot glasses as well, lots of pictures to take and a General Store nearby had great selection of snacks, drinks and of course ice cream. I will return when given the opportunity.

  • OK, I am going to admit we stopped here because I needed a bathroom BAD and this was the first place we found. However, I am so glad we stopped. We did the tour of the home in the rock, which was so impressive. The amount of work put into building this home is mind boggling! The guide was informative. We did not visit the zoo portion.

  • Fun little stop to check out and explore some of the amazing things southern Utah has to offer. This place is often packed with people but it is fun to check out and they have all kinds of little things to do there. They even have a zoo if you are into that. Cool gift shops and fun little things to check out and explore around the area to get a feel for the area. If you are looking for a stop to stretch the legs and let the kids run around for a bit this is the spot to burn some time and explore.

  • Great artistic treasure one would easily pass. One could spend a day here jusy looking at all the metal artworks. The rock house is very interesting, and the zoo is much fun too. Feed the animals and have a king size ice cup!

  • Great place. Lots to see. You can walk around the grounds and take great pictures. The store is located inside the rock. You can take a 12 minute tour inside the rock but there are no pictures of any kind allowed. Still is worth stopping there even just to take photos of the area
