About Jerry Murdock

Jerry and Tina Murdock built this Cabin for travelers to enjoy the Canyonlands area. We are the proud parents of many children, and even more grandchildren. We love riding ATV's and Jeeps on the trails, mountains, and canyons in the area.

Jerry Murdock purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Jerry Murdock chose Monticello

This cabin has a full kitchen and living room/dining room areas along with plush sleeping areas. We are centrally located among 12 National Parks and Monuments. This beautiful cabin is secluded, quiet and private, yet is accessible to the highway for easy visits to sites of your choice, or just relax on the covered patio and enjoy the scenery and quiet. The sunrises and sunsets here are spectacular, and the star gazing is out of this world. You are sure to enjoy the cabin and all of its western luxuries.

Thank you,

Jerry and Tina Murdock

What makes this cabin unique

Perfect for all

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just perfect for us we had a great stay our dogs loved walking around exploring. I thought there was a trail for us but it wasn’t but it was ok still we had fun looking around. We took the bikes out to look at all the area. Location was perfect close to everything. I know we will be back and try a different cabin. Thanks for the treats the I think root beer was the best!!

Perfect Base Camp for SE Utah Exploration

  • 5 of 5

Each morning we headed out for an adventure that included Canyonlands NP, Hovenweep NM, Natural Bridges NM, and The Edge of the Cedars Museum. In the late afternoon we retreated back to our Western Cabin, popped a cold one, sat on the porch, relaxed and chatted.

The accomodations were spotless and met every need we had. Thanks to quick work by Jerry, a plumbing problem that we had created, was swiftly taken care of as we explored during the day time. We would highly recommend this rental.

Secluded and Central Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Ranch Cabin for 5 days. The location is south of the Moab activity, but was perfect for the day trips we took hiking in Canyonlands and surrounding areas. Nicely maintained place with everything you need for a comfortable home away from home.

Cute little cabin in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is fully stocked and incredibly comfortable. We had 5 people and a dog but could have easily fit 5 more. We were 10 miles from Blanding and Monticello and easily situated for the National Parks (we visited Canyonlands). We did not meet the hosts, but they provided freshly baked muffins, which was a nice touch. Would recommend.

An Excellent Place

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the location and cabin. There are multiple structures spread out over a 65-acre ranch. This was a very quiet place except to hear the highway in the distance which virtually disappeared at night. Cabin was very nicely furnished and very much in keeping with the theme of a "western" cabin.

Only negative thing we can say is that the beds could be improved upon.
