Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve put together a list of common questions to help you. If you don’t see what you are looking for, feel free to contact us directly and we’d be happy to help!


We have Bungalows and Townhomes. All units open directly to the outdoors.

Our Bungalows are freestanding one-room studio-style units. Singles have 1 king bed. All others have 1 king and 1 queen bed. They vary in size from 430 sq ft to 540 sq ft, much larger than a standard hotel room! All bungalows have a private covered porch with a table & chairs, kitchenette, and drive up convenience.

Our Townhouses are privately owned with fully equipped kitchens, separate bedrooms (1, 2, and 3 bedrooms), some with sleeping lofts, covered balconies & patios, BBQ grills, outdoor seating, washer & dryer, as well as attached covered parking. Unit specific sleeping arrangements are listed on the booking page.

Please call us and we're happy to assist you in choosing what's best for you. We also include a list of in-unit amenities, max occupancy, pictures and other helpful details for each unit on our booking page. 


You will have full access to all our amenities at no extra charge. Amenities include our Meadow (private park), pool, hot tub, basketball court, walking trail and Horsethief Coffee. NOTE: Horsethief Coffee is seasonal. Open Mid -February - October 31. 

The Meadow is our most unique amenity and most treasured by all our guests. It's our private park with fresh flowing cool spring water, wading pools, ponds, large native trees that provide plenty of filtered shade, cool grass, hammocks, fire circle and views of the sandstone cliffs. 

We have Moab’s cleanest and most scenic heated swimming pool (16 by 42 feet - open March to October) and a large (10 foot by 10 foot) in-ground jetted hot tub which is open year round. 

We have a loop trail on site and viewpoints of the Portal of the Colorado River. We are a bike-in bike-out resort with direct connection to the Moab pedestrian path that leads you to the River Road, Arches National Park, and beyond.

In addition to full use of our resort, you will receive personal recommendations, a daily porch service (bungalows only), washer and dryer (townhomes only), free parking up to 2 vehicles, WiFi, cable, large Smart TV's, air conditioning and heat.

Horsethief Coffee is our on-site cafe. Hours vary by season. We have our own baker and offer a wide array of coffee drinks, cold teas and lemonades, and a great grab and go breakfast menu including fresh made breakfast sandwiches, burritos, fruit, fresh granola, oatmeal and an every changing variety of freshly made baked goods. Some of them are gluten free and vegan.

We encourage you not to miss what everyone raves about -rediscovering the old-fashioned pleasures of wading in fresh cool spring water, relaxing in the shade on a lounge chair or hammock, and bobbing in a cool refreshing pond. All of this wonder and relaxation can be found in our private meadow.

For the convenience of our guests, we've designed the resort with parking next to each unit. We have limited parking beyond the dedicated parking spots.

Extra Parking Spaces
Additional parking (3rd and 4th spaces) is limited, on a first-come basis, is pre-assigned, and requires a permit from our office and may be subject to an additional fee of $20 per space per night. If all spots are taken, or if you do not approve of the fee, our office will assist you with finding off-site parking options.

Trailers under 20 feet are permitted if they can fit completely in your unit’s dedicated parking spaces. If bringing your trailer requires the need for a 3rd or 4th parking space, you will need to obtain a permit for $20 per night per space. If your trailer is longer than 20 feet, we will do our best to help you find off-site parking.


Moab Springs Ranch is a small, local, privately owned and perfectly located one-of-a-kind boutique resort designed and developed to enhance its natural setting within what was Moab’s first ranch. For millennia this site has been a desert oasis with flowing springs and majestic cottonwood trees. We are not a national chain hotel. Our design allows guests to experience the desert environment from porches, balconies, patios and throughout our spacious natural grounds.

Our accommodations are some of the most comfortable and convenient in Moab. Our location is outside the hubbub of downtown Moab, but very close to town, national parks and the Colorado River. We strive to offer a clean safe stay with personalized service and attention to detail. Just as important, our staff is Moab’s finest and can provide knowledge and guidance for a unique and unforgettable vacation. 

We look forward to welcoming you to this very special place. 


Here in Moab, the locals are highly focused on sustainability of the beautiful nature around us. With the increased number of tourists coming to the area, it is more important than ever to protect, preserve respect the environment.
