Overview

About the property

Ideal for a couple

In the center of Thompson Springs ghost town! Quiet and peaceful. This is not for the person who loves rush hour in the big city! There is a Shell station in town and that's it! Bring groceries with you when you come. Moab and Arches National park is about a half hour drive to the south. This place is really all about freedom. If you decide to ride an ATV through Town, nobody bothers you. If you decide to ride your bicycle down old hwy 6 you might pass a car, but chances are you won't.

About Dave McKay

I love adventure and beautiful scenery, open spaces, no crowds and lots of wild life. My idea of relaxing is not waiting in line at Disney world (although it has its place)

Dave McKay purchased this mobile home in 2010

Why Dave McKay chose Thompson

I bought this property because its not handy to shopping and air pollution and traffic jams and noise and confusion and stress... hundreds of miles of unfenced public property! serenity!!!!

What makes this mobile home unique

You can go hundreds of miles on an ATV and not cross private property

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Gecko House in Thompson

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean spacious and quiet. We would recommend staying at the Gecko House in Thompson. The drive to Moab was easy and scenic.

We went to Moab each day for an adventure, but found it noisy,busy and congested.

We especially liked hearing the trains go thru town in Thompson.

Clean, Great for a Weekend Stay

  • 4 of 5

We came out for a weekend getaway with the kids and had a great time exploring the canyon here and going down to Moab for the day. It’s a great set up for a game night or family time. No complaints at all.

Enjoyed my stay

  • 5 of 5

Was there in early March when it was cold outside at night. Cozy, warm rental that lived up to its description. Great water pressure and water was very hot. Served as a perfect base camp for me to visit the surrounding National Parks. As mentioned in other reviews, nearby freight train can be loud but I knew this going in. Very private rental.

Cozy and clean cabin. Had everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

Great experience and hospitality. We accidentally locked ourselves out on Thanksgiving and were able to get ahold of Dave and get let in. Will definitely be back, can’t beat the price and amenities.

Cute clean little mobile home

  • 5 of 5

Serenely quiet except for the occasional train and since I love trains that was great. Grounds were a bit stark but there are young trees planted and all was well maintained. Manager was excellent at making us feel welcome and how the process worked with both email and text.

Very nice place clean. Very quiet area.

Great place and short 30 minute drive to arches/Moab. The $ is well worth it. We will definitely stay at The “Gecko” when we go back to Utah.
