Beautiful and unique. Very well kept and clean.

This was our second year staying at the Trading Post. This home is one of a kind with its unique rooms, and stone, wood, and tile accents. There are great trails behind the home and a large fenced backyard for the pups. The full kitchen means you can bring your own food and cook when you don’t feel like leaving this charming oasis. The property management company is also very responsive and helpful if you need anything. We will definitely be back!

California and Colorado quarantining family members reunited here. So great to have the yard for the dog and really super kitchen stuff (great pans and sharp knives) since we weren’t doing dining out. Make sure to bring your own oils and foils.

Be aware that it’s on the highway but the a/c masks those sounds.

Just one small strange thing:

We really enjoyed our stay, however the information provided by the rental company in the home wasn’t up to date and we’ve been unable to contact anyone with Vacasa about issues we encountered.

Overall, the house was perfect for us and we enjoyed our time there.

Had an awesome stay at this property. Close to food and all activities Moab had to offer. Hidden Cuisine right next door was the best for breakfast/brunch. Food was amazing and staff super friendly. Home is very spacious, has everything you need for a great getaway. Huge garage for utv or atv rentals and your own vehicle. Plenty of parking around house as well. Loved the antique look from the outside, knowing it was a trading post back in the day made you feel like you were in the wild Wild West. The only issue was that one side of the house was cooler than the other, didn’t bother me much, still had a great stay and will rent again.

The home was very comfortable and unique heating and cooling works well but we did notice quite a bit of road noise.
The garage was so perfect for our dirtbikes!!
I got to feed the pig next door lol, he was so cute!

feels like you are staying in an old western movie, super nice house!
Elisabeth B. Aug 2019
The house has everything you could wish for. Especially because there was only the 2 of us. There is enough space for a hole family.
The garden was nice to sit in the evening before starting to cook. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed.
The air conditioner worked fine, so the temperature in house was perfect.
We had a pleasant experience.

The Trading post was a perfect place for our family to gather and explore the beauty of the Moab area. Spacious. Colorful, fun home. Great private bedroom areas and communal areas inside and out. Loved the dog friendly back yard and views. Totally recommend this place .

Loved everything about the house. It was equipped with everything we needed, and everything worked. Have been renting vacation homes for many years and your home had all that we needed. Loved the colors and decor.

This house was so unique. The decor was so colorful and fun. Everything we needed was available and easy to find. Very welcoming for the dog including provided food/water bowls, pet doors and large fenced in yard. Loved it. We wish our stay could have been longer.

Great home. Very clean. Large living room area and dinning room to accommodate all your guests

The Trading Post is a fun, dinstinctive, and comfortable home base for Moab adventures. The layout provides all guests with plenty of privacy and the inside and outside gathering spaces allow plenty of places to gather and retell stories from the day. The pet friendly yard is a great feature! Everything was clean and functional. Adding hot tub and enough dish ware for all guests (6-8) Would push this to a 5 star rating.
Michael S H. Jun 2018
Love the style and decoration of this home - so much fun. A little warm, however, with the swamp cooler, but we closed off the front portion of the home and used the rest. Very spacious and fun!
Meredith B. Jun 2018
Beautiful, spacious home that was very inviting and comfortable. We were close to Moab and enjoyed exploring Canyonlands and Arches National parks.
George M. Mar 2018
The house was very comfortable. Plenty of room to spread out. We all had a great time!
