The Road House Cabin at Pack Creek Ranch

The Road House cabin sits at the upper end of the ranch next to a fenced pasture occupied by goats and occasional horses. A wide wood deck provides unobstructed views of 12K' mountains. The adjoining west patio also has chairs and a portable fire pit that lies beneath the largest oak tree in the valley. There is also a full front porch with more chairs for viewing warm desert sunsets down valley and in Canyon Lands National Park. Another flagstone patio off the back of the kitchen leads to the Abbey Cabin and a gas grill.

Moab Cabin Interior Inside, the Road House cabin combines the perfect qualities of both western charm and modern amenities ideally suited for 4-6 guests. It's been newly renovated with European-style furnishings, fixtures and appliances. In contrast, original log cabin walls, ceilings and rustic beams are part of every room reminding guests of it's classic cowboy heritage. The living room has two sofas, side chair, side table and coffee table. The rock fire place is original as are the rock walls on each side with two bright windows. The adjoining dining room has more log cabin walls and table with chairs for six. Given our secluded location, typical television or telephone lines are not available making this a perfect place to relax and unwind. Cell phone coverage and quality will vary depending on carriers. For convenience, there is a high speed wireless router for internet access. Combined with a 40" smart television, Netflix, You Tube, Hulu, Pandora etc., are available or plug in your laptop. There is also a Blue Ray/DVD/CD player and rentals available in town.

Our well lit kitchen has IKEA brand gas stove/oven and hood, refrigerator, cabinetry, large peasant sink and modern faucet. Under the butcher block counter top, large storage drawers are filled with lots of high quality cookware and utensils. There is no capacity for a dishwasher or disposal.

The light and airy master bedroom has two large windows and two floor to ceiling hanger / drawer style clothes cabinets. The guest bedroom has double French Doors that lead to a large wood deck and flagstone patio providing dramatic views of green pastures and majestic 12K' La Sal mountain peaks. Both have queen beds with contemporary headboards, side tables, under bed storage drawers and carpeted floors.

Across the hall from the master bedroom is a large bathroom with a marble walk-in shower and glass door. There is also another floor to ceiling hanger / drawer style clothes cabinet plus a washer/dryer. The second bath has a conventional tub / shower with marble floor. Both have IKEA vanities and fixtures.

In addition to the queen beds in each of the two bedrooms, the cozy and historic Abbey Cabin is just outside the kitchen door. The cabin had been neglected for many years so in 2014, the 'Abbey Cabin' was renovated and now serves as a detached guest bedroom. It has a totally new insulated interior with heater and air conditioner and a new queen size trampolene-style sofa sleeper. While visiting here, author and environmental activist Edward Abbey ~ well known author of Desert Solitaire, The Monkey Wrench Gang, Black Sun and other popular titles, used the Road House and quiet cabin to write and edit. He penned his last book here in 1988.
