Very Interesting.

The tour of the "Rock" was very cool - in temperature too - and the displays and gift shop were fun. Don't forget to get some ice cream at the General Store!!

Ok, so a 5 star rating on a tourist trap??? My rating is based on how well does this do at showcasing the class American tourist trap of the 1950's ... and this place nails it! First of all, he dynamites his way into solid rock to build a house. As if that isn't enough, he puts in a 60... More

Take the $6 tour and learn the history of this amazing home in the rock. As a part time resident of the area I tell all my out of town guests to check it out!

We really enjoyed seeing this marvel. I could actually live there; it was truly a work or art and a labor of love. Hard to believe someone actually created this wonderful home.

OK, so it's a home carved out of a rock. Yes, a marvel of engineering in its day and an example of great perseverance, but why? Rather gaudy signage on the side of the rock with the quotation mark in the wrong place.

We went here on a rainy morning because there was nothing else to do. The history behind this house is really amazing. You have to pay for the tour, $6 pp. You learn how the house was built, see everyday things that the couple used. I did notice an old fax machine in the house, I don't think they had... More

I was disappointed that this place defaced the natural beauty by painting the name of the site on the beautiful rocks surrounding it. Why?

$6 to tour seems a little stiff and commercialized. But if you like old, weird stuff make the stop. The "Do Not Touch" signs in the shop are a little excessive. I get it, I'll keep my hands to myself. I don't like visiting places that look at me like a criminal just because I walked in to check out... More

No need to stop if you have been to Arches, unless you need a pit stop along the road. Nice local scenery and a photo op.

We've driven past this tourist trap for years but finally stopped this time with our grandsons. It's a kitschy sort of place so if you like that sort of thing you should stop. The tour takes you into a home that was chiseled out of the rock. It costs 6 bucks for 12 minutes. It's a trap to be sure... More
