Venture out from Moab around to the Colorado side of the La Sal Mountains, 14 miles from Utah Highway 191 on Utah Route 46, to discover the untrammeled side of the La Sal Mountains and a lodging company and animal sanctuary engulfed in abundant peace and quiet that defies definition.
It is, all at once, a lodge, rental cabins, a massage therapy center, and an animal sanctuary. A most fascinating and beautiful place indeed.

What started as a more traditional tourist-oriented lodge in the early 1990s, founded by Lisa Ballantyne and Teague Eskelsen, has become a healing place for humans and for the special needs animals at the sanctuary. The animal sanctuary is only two years old but already is home to several special needs horses, a pack of lovable hounds and cats in every size, shape, and description.

This property has 2 Queen(s), 2 Twin(s).

Guest Reviews

We look forward to returning! by Amber 05/05/2019
Although 40 minutes away from town - I highly recommend staying at this cabin in La Sal over staying anywhere else in Moab! The peace and quiet of the animal sanctuary coupled with the views of the mountains was unmatched by anywhere else we’ve stayed. No cell phone service, no problem! It was fine by my family and I to disconnected for a couple days to enjoy each other’s company and find other ways to entertain ourselves. There is plenty to do on-site: from visiting the animals or volunteering to help with them, to snapping photos of the mountains, or walking the trail on the grounds, you will not have a bored moment after a day at the ‘nearby’ national parks . The cabin was spacious and offered just what we needed in terms of the kitchen space, porch for relaxing in the evening, nearby picnic tables and toiletries. Nothing was more charming and cute than hearing Patrick and friends neighing in the distance! Jerry is an awesome host, and I’m sure you’d be pleased with this property. We look forward to returning.
Tranquil and enjoyable! by Julliette 05/05/2019
Our stay in La Sal was tranquil and very enjoyable. The next time we come we want to stay longer and help with the animals. Teague and staff were very helpful. The beds were comfy. Be prepared to be without the internet. The best service was when we drove up the mountain a bit.
Recommended!!! by Barbara 04/15/2019
Recommended. Beautiful surroundings, the cabin is amazing and with full amenities. The only drawback was very slow Internet connection.
A nice secluded get away! by Ivaly 10/31/2018
A nice secluded get away!
Stunning location with spectacular views! by Barbara 10/31/2018
Stunning location with spectacular views and night sky. Bring everything you might need since it’s pretty far from anything but that is its charm. Cabin was spacious and clean and beds very cosy! Fun to wander around the ranch and chat to the horses and watch the deer from your window. Heard coyotes howling at night!!
Everything we could have asked for by Tyler 06/13/2018
Amazing location. The cabin was everything we could have asked for and more. Surrounded by amazing views
Loved the location! by Jaime 06/13/2018
Loved the location. Loved the short distance it takes to get to town and the country atmosphere. The cabins were amazing fully stocked and private location. The mattress not so comfy and air conditioner did not work other than that I will rent with you guys again.

Wonderful cabin!! by Karen 05/24/2018
Cannot praise this accommodation enough. Situation was out of this world the peace and quiet hard to experience these days Several National Parks within easy driving distance. If you are thinking of booking don't hesitate
We loved this cabin! by Haeleon 05/01/2018
We loved this cabin. the cabin was very comfortable and we felt right at home. we had amazing mountain view from the window plus to watch wild animals... Highly recommended!
Great, clean, and cute cabin to stay in by Christine 04/03/2018
Great, clean, and cute cabin to stay in if you are going to Arches and Canyonlands. The beds were comfortable and there were enough towels for everyone. The only complaint is that the WiFi was not working, but other than that, we had no complaints. I would stay at this location again.
Very Clean and Relaxing by Michaela 07/14/2017
“Beautiful cabin for a secluded getaway. The place was exactly as described and was very clean and relaxing. “We had a lovely stay! Thanks!”
Thanks so much for the hospitality. by Denise 04/14/2017
Great base for traveling north and south around Moab.
Great location and scenery by Eunsan 11/22/2016
We had a wonderful time at the cabin. The property is secluded and surrounded by nature which was exactly what we were looking for. It was about a 40 minute drive to Moab which made it an ideal place to take day trips to the town and the national parks. Everything was very clean and we loved the horses and dogs on the farm.
Exactly what we wanted by B Sanford 04/30/2016
This was a great cabin in a beautiful setting. The cabin is quite spacious and is meticulously kept. We had no issues at all, and the actual cabin layout and outfitting was completely consistent with the airbnb description. The construction of the cabin was fascinating - clearly a lot of skill and attention to detail went into the building process. The cabin is located at the base on several mountains, which are quite picturesque. It was exactly what we were looking for and we very much enjoyed our time in the area.”
Very Accommodating by Josh 04/09/2016
“The owner was accommodating of our late arrival to the ranch, and we were very impressed by the cabin. Very clean and comfortable, with great views all around. The kitchen was stocked with all the cooking supplies we needed. Though it it a good way from town, it was nice to be out of the desert every night. I would certainly stay here again and recommend to friends. ”

My wife and I stayed in the Cabin for a long weekend. It is a much different experience than a hotel. The cabin is about 30 min from Moab but the drive was very worth it, and it was a beautiful drive. The cabin is clean and well furnished. It was a very pleasant experience for us and I will stay there again.

Response: Hey, thank you for coming and enjoying this beautiful place with us. It is people like you that make us enjoy so much what we do! Thank you
My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the 3 bedroom cottage during April and enjoyed it very much. by Judith T 05/04/2015
My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the 3 bedroom cottage during April and enjoyed it very much. It was equipped with everything we needed. Nice and quiet and away from the crowds. We cooked dinner three nights on the propane bbq on the front porch, very relaxing. We liked the remoteness, yet it was close enough to drive less than an hour to the National Parks for hiking. Out the front door, we were greeted with snow capped mountains--beautiful. We counted 12 deer one early evening munching on some green grass, only feet from the cabin.
The staff operating the place were friendly and helpful. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Response: Yes, the deer and other animals are so fun to watch. Thank you for enjoying this with us!
We stayed at the Mt Peale cabins over Christmas and it was, by far, the BEST CHRISTMAS EVER for our family! by Jackie 12/29/2014
We stayed at the Mt Peale cabins over Christmas and it was, by far, the BEST CHRISTMAS EVER for our family! Cabin is awesome and perfect if you want to "get away!" Very "quaint" and you felt like you were up in the mountains all by yourself! Great views! Would stay there in a heartbeat and highly recommend! Only complaint--the gas fireplace was not working.
I stayed at Mt. by Phillip Norman 08/16/2013
I stayed at Mt. Peale Cabins for four nights in the first week of August, 2013. The three bedroom cabin was perfect for our family foursome. Where it was 102° in Moab, it was twenty degrees cooler at Mt. Peale. The 36 mile drive was a really good deal, up to plateau above 7000 ft elevation. We got much-needed coolness and quiet, and fun watching deer and rabbits. A rabbit, and the deer, had the same huge ears!
