Break away from the everyday, Explore Moab

If you crave a break from the ordinary, a unique retreat from the all-too-familiar, plan your next travel experience at the Red Cliffs Adventure Lodge. Located 14 miles up the Colorado River on scenic Hwy 128 from downtown Moab, we are situated beside the river’s best white water rapids, at the foot of dramatic Red rock cliffs. It’s a classic, rugged Western landscape worthy of Hollywood, and was in fact the site of numerous films, including Rio Grande with John Wayne.

Red Cliffs Lodge offers the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure. From mountain biking, horseback riding and guided tours of national parks (Arches, Canyonlands and Dead Horse State Park), to rafting, jeeping and hiking, we’re the ideal base from which to explore Moab. We’re also a spectacular spot for weddings and offer comprehensive corporate meeting facilities.

Red Cliffs Lodge is home to the Castle Creek Winery, the largest in Utah, with daily wine tasting. In addition, we maintain the Moab Movie Museum, which tells the rich history of movie making in the region and features fascinating facts and memorabilia from those films. The Cowboy Grill, our terraced dining room, offers delicious Western fare along with fabulous views of the Colorado River. So whatever your fancy, our capable, experienced staff is eager to share all that Moab has to offer.

Quoting National Traveler Senior Editor Sheila Buckmaster: “The hotels on our Stay List 2009 don’t just reflect their surroundings-they help define them,” says Traveler Senior Editor Sheila Feldman Buckmaster. “What they all have in common is a transcendent vision that goes beyond traditional hotel-keeping. This mindset is what gives these hotels their sense of place. Make no mistake: you’ll sense the vibe at once. And after your stay, you’ll leave with the kind of insight only soulful places can provide.”
The criteria for the selection process for the National Geographic Traveler 2009 Stay List: To find these hotels, Traveler tapped into the collected experiences of veteran journalists, inveterate road warriors, and local experts. They based their nominations on key criteria. Is the hotel engaged with the local community? Does it subscribe to sustainable practices that respect the region? Does it truly capture the spirit of its setting? Further research and detailed questionnaires winnowed hundreds of submissions down to this sweet list of 129 hotels.

Top Adventure Destination Award: Moab, Utah

– Article from “Frommers:Destinations”: Some might look at Moab, Utah, and tell you it’s in the middle of nowhere. Those in the know will tell you that it in fact is in the middle of everything.
Nestled in a green valley surrounded by red-rock scenery, Moab isn’t a destination for what’s inside the city limits — rather, what’s just outside of them is the big attraction. Not only is it on the doorstep of a pair of national parks — Arches and Canyonlands — but it’s also home to dozens of outfitters that can take you rafting, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, or four-wheeling.

Red Cliffs Lodge opened in 2002 and draws visitors from across the U.S. and the world. Since opening, the lodge has been named the “best weekend getaway,” and has received recommendations from a variety of national travel magazines including being listed in the “Perfect 10” list in “Outside Traveler,” and inclusion in “National Geographic Traveler” magazine’s top destinations in the world.

“We rented a cabin along the river, what a restful and peaceful place to stay. The staff was SUPER! There is a restaurant on site with reasonable prices and great food. You can sit outside on the deck and watch the sun set with colors on the red rocks that are indescribable. There is an abundance of activities you can take part in at this ranch so don’t let the 13 miles or so from Moab detour you. If your looking for a great restful place to get away but not be completely secluded, this is the place.” – Jim P
