About Jerry Murdock

Jerry and Tina Murdock and family built this Cabin for travelers to enjoy the Canyonlands area. We are the proud parents of many children, and even more grandchildren. We love hiking, biking, and riding on the trails, mountains, and canyons. You will love it too!

Jerry Murdock purchased this cabin in 2009

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

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family of 7 stayed at the Canyonview Family Cabin for 6 nights. This cabin is located between Blanding and Monticello Utah in a picturesque setting. We used the cabin as a basecamp for all of our travels to the surrounding area National Parks and attractions. There are deer that can be watched outside of the windows in the mornings and birds feeding at the feeders during the day. The owners also have two dogs that are very kid friendly. The cabin is beautiful and very comfortable. The children loved the tree house and building a campfire in the fire pit. The owners are friendly and very helpful. We would highly recommend this cabin! We will definitely use Canyonlands Lodging in the future for our stay in the Canyonlands Area,

Quiet, peaceful, beautiful scenery. The cabin has everything you would need, plus! A bit of a drive to National Parks, but worth it!

Great, I totally recommend it.

We stayed here with two families, 11 people total. The cabin is clean and quite roomy, and very well stocked. The water situation is the only drawback. The water pressure is a bit low and the shower temperature a bit low too.

Owner's Response: One of the great things about this cabin is the "off the grid" features. The water temperature is at 110 degrees, should be hot for everyone. How many of these places were you able to visit while you were here? *Arches National Park *Canyonlands National Park South Entrance *Monticello Temple *Bluff Fort *Hideout Golf Course, Rated #1 *100’s of Ancient American Ruin Sites *Edge of the Cedars State Park and Ruins *Newspaper Rock *Wilson Arch *Mule Canyon Ruins *Grand Gulch Hiking and Ruins *Hovenweep Ruins State Park *Valley of the Gods *Needles Overlook of Canyonlands *Natural Bridges National Monument *Goosenecks Overlook State Park *38 Major ATV/Jeep Trailheads, over 3000 miles of trails *Mesa Verde Ruins *Monument Valley National Park *John Wayne Movie Museum *Four Corners National Monument

This house (home) was the best place we have stayed (and we travel lots!). It has the feel of a truly comfy and FULLY STOCKED home! There were four of us and we all agree UU are truly gifted in making your visitors feel at home (UU even left me cream for my coffee!!). We found it immaculate when we arrived, and it was so easy to keep it clean!! A fully stocked kitchen, plenty of towels and bedding made it a perfect place to stay. Although this was an adult getaway this time, we want to bring our children and grandchildren down in the summer to take advantage of your summer activities!! Thanks again for sharing this amazing property!!
