A perfect location to visit the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. A very comfortable home to return to every evening. We loved the garden and solitude - a very special place. We all take away some very fond memories of Raven's Retreat. Thank You.

We had a wonderful, restful time at Raven's Retreat. Truly enjoyed all that it had to offer. Moab is a great place to visit and we are looking forward to our trip here next year. Thank you for your beautiful home and property.
April 11 - 16, 2013
Our group enjoyed the wonderful activities in and around Moab…hiking, mountain biking, rappelling, seeing parks and sites. The Retreat was so great for our group, especially the hot tub, garage, fire pit, chairs by the stream… A nice bonus was the well stocked kitchen including condiments! The only problem is our stay was too short! We would love to come back next year!

We have to leave for Kanab tomorrow. I always hate leaving Moab. Raven's Retreat is wonderful as always! Our dog, Moab (Mo) loves it so much its hard to get him in the car to go hiking. That is very unusual! Can't wait for next year!

We had a great time again staying at Ravens Retreat and having fun in Moab, Utah. As I say again, Ravens Retreat is the best and most relaxing place to stay in all of Moab. We can't wait for the hiking, biking, motorcycling, and especially Ravens Retreat next year.

This house is amazing and well decorated!
Half of our party was delayed due to flight mix-ups. When we were finally all here we enjoyed every bit of our time here. This time of year is beautiful. The days were beautiful and the nights were a bit cold for me, but the house was always warm and inviting. Thanks!

Planned to stay a week, but having such a great time,; we had to add a couple of days. Canyonlands is amazing - especially Needles. Definitely worth the trip (do at least some if the Elephant Hill hike) and don't miss Newspaper Rock on the way. Our first trip in the Moab area, but we will be back.
Lovely house and grounds (and hot tub!) Our dog really enjoyed the vacation as well, even though he couldn't do much (14+ and bad arthritis). A great vacation for all of us. Jeffrey's Steakhouse is a real gem too!
Thanks for sharing this great place with us.

Today is the conclusion of our 5 day stay at Ravens Retreat…It has been a wonderful stay. Truly a home away from home. I walked the Labyrinth yesterday for the first time. On my way to the center I thought of all the pain and tragedy of the year… yet at the center, thankful for being blessed with the opportunity to share such a wonderful place with my closest friends. Truly cleansed.

Ravens Retreat is the most well appointed, comfortable and spacious place we have stayed at. The family room is especially large with very comfortable furniture and is a great place for the whole family to hang out in the evening. We also really enjoy sitting outside and playing croquet in the late afternoon. The property sits far away from the main road which adds to the retreat feel of the place, yet Moab is only three miles away with many places to eat. It's a great place to come back to after spending a full day in the majestic scenery of Utah!

My family stayed at Ravens Retreat for Memorial weekend and really enjoyed this place. It was nice to be able to find a place that could accommodate us (8 adults and two small children ages 3 and 6 months). We really enjoyed the living room area where all of us could hang out together, with plenty of room, in the evenings. The bbq and hot tub were nice as well. This house is also off a dirt road that gives it a private setting with plenty of parking space. It was nice to come home to and relax after a long day of activities. Overall, we had a great time and would stay here again.

Ravens Retreat was a perfect size and a most comfortable, welcoming and beautiful place for our family to get together. We came from 3 directions to meet here. "Tried" to watch the solar eclipse, and ended up observing it in silence as it sank behind the hillside. Love the ravens - artwork and in real life. Thank you for opening it up to share.

March 11 - 14, 2012
We had a very good, fun, and exciting time at Ravens Retreat. We have done everything we wanted to do in Moab but we're still very sad to leave. We hope to come back next year. If you're staying here it is the best place to stay!

We all agree with Bill Swanson (6/10/07) "Your Retreat has exceeded all expectations." Although we are sure that we can never top theses gentleman's shenanigans, (Burke, Brent, Siego, Reiser, Rotho, Lipper, Big Dave, Kaz and Bloomer (9/26/07, 9/28/08, 10/03/09, 10/03/10), we sure had just as much fun. We had no skunk problem like the Mclean party (7/28/08). But, there was a Sasquatch Scare while were in the wonderful hot tub. that was quickly Quelled by our faithful Pandora (Blue Heeler/Aussie) who proved it wasn't a Sasquatch at all, but just a drunk Kip Marley. We enjoyed cooking our meals in your well equipped kitchen, much like the Matsuradas (2/18/09). We appreciated the stocked pantry - who knew we would need crushed red pepper flakes?! We truly enjoyed ourselves.

Luxurious Base Camp! We rented Ravens Retreat the 3rd time since 2007 for a month. A lovely place that became second home to us. Very well equipped and with a exceptional tasteful interior it is the luxurious "base camp" for our tours through Southeastern Utah. Tucked beneath large Cottonwood Trees besides a small creek and in a quiet neighborhood it is far away from the inconveniences of life. For the two of us it is more than spacious with all the amenities we like. Presumably one won´t miss anything. Don´t forget the large garage. Be prepared to see some friendly wildlife at dusk or at night. For sure Ravens Retreat will be again the rent of our choice. Visiting Moab since 1987 Ravens Retreat is by far the best place we found over all these years.

Exquisitely appointed…magnificent attention to details…Ravens Retreat is a magical place. Enjoyed the books and music. Wrote, read, and reveled. We didn’t want to leave. Even while regional canyon trails beckoned, we gravitated to simply being at the Retreat.
Thank you for the creativity shown at this place.

Thank you so much for a wonderful and relaxing weekend. Beautiful scenery, who knew?
Ravens Retreat is really a retreat. The house and the yard are perfect. Everything you need is here!
We hope to come back and visit again. There is so much to see, so many trails to hike, restaurants to visit, etc. We didn’t even turn on the TV…. I will never forget the hot tub under the stars…it was truly magical…
Thank you for having us.

Got here on the 30th, in the order I now see them: Kaz, Dimmer, Bloomer, Seigs, Roth, Lipp (and me).
The first year of the “whole enchilada”, but it seems the enchilada grows every year. As does the group, with the addition of Dimmer from Michigan. We nearly lost Bloomer one night when he tried to cure dehydration with tequila shots. Anyway, he survived. I could go on forever about the things that we rode and scrambled over the last four days, but sitting here at Ravens Retreat and watching the football championship live from Australia - and seeing the Collingwood Magpies beat St. Kilda – will go down in the history of man & beast!

Thanks for everything.

I love this place, I’ll be back!

Had a great time. We come to Moab every other year because of its beautiful scenery, off-roading, 4-wheeling, hiking… Can’t get enough of it! Loved the house – It’s my kind of camping. Beautiful, unique décor. My kids loved the cat in the bathroom!

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful, unique and special home. We came for some red-rock jeeping, hiking and adventuring, and were so happy to return each evening to the comfort and tranquility of R.R. Another joy is cooking gourmet meals, which was a breeze with the well equipped and pristine kitchen!
Our Border Collie, Stella, found the accommodations quite to her liking as well. She appreciates your canine hospitality.
Thanks for everything!

This is my third visit to Ravens Retreat. I think each time is the best, enjoying the change in seasons - summer, fall and winter.
This house is so rich, cozy, stimulating. Thank you, for it is indeed much more than a place to stay, but truly a retreat. If I could I would love to spend a month or more here to explore more of the amazing parks and all you have to offer in terms of literature and music.
Today was a winter wonderland, snow gracefully falling, deer across the creek, a flock of black ravens contrasting with the snow filled sky.
It doesn't get better than this!

The Budwell clan spent a wonderful Christmas at Ravens Retreat - snow, freezing temperatures, shared family walks, hot tub...
Our only question is when will we return!
December 6-10, 2009
Our family gathered from Colorado, Nebraska and Illinois to enjoy the wonderful parks around Moab. It turned out, even with a foot of snow and below zero temperatures, we had a very enjoyable time.
Thank you for the lovely accommodations.
October 23, 2009
This was a wonderful surprise vacation from my husband, Grant. We enjoyed the home tremendously, and of course, the sights. We would highly recommend you to our friends.
We are leaving now for me to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. I have been waiting 23 years. I had a bad accident the last time I got up my nerve, and I am ready.
September 13, 2009
Wow! Did the 5 days go so fast.
Quiet place, relaxing! After hiking, biking, and kayaking, we really enjoyed the hot tub and looking at the stars, and also the great view of the space shuttle and space station that lasted 5 minutes.
We really enjoyed our stay in Moab. We hate to leave, but that is how life is. We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary here, and it was great. We hope to come back some day before we are too old.

Great place to stay after hitting the Arches National Park all day. Very cozy inside with great furniture. Loved sitting out back in the evening drinking wine with friends in the hot tub. Apricots were tasty!
July 23-26, 2009
As I sit at the kitchen table to write about our wonderful four days at RR, four deer are staring at me from across the creek, and even more amazing, they are ALL BUCKS!!!
We didn't think much could top the view of the universe from the hot tub on our first night here (never have seen so many stars), but the view from the hot air balloon this morning was breathtakingly wondrous and beautiful. We recommend that everyone get up at 5 a.m. to add this peak experience to their visit to Moab!
Thanks so, so much,

The week here was great. The place was awesome! We went offroading every day and relaxed here every night. It was the first time for some , regular business for others....
Thanks! We'll be back!
February 27, 2009
Raven's Retreat was awesome. We loved the hot tub and especially how at home we felt here. We were all very comfortable and my brother and I were very grateful that there was a trundle bed (so we wouldn't have to share). Our parents and cousin took over the other two bedrooms to the two beds were very nice!
We also liked being here surrounded by trees. Yesterday was something though... A skunk (or at least my dad thought so) made it's way through the yard. Our dogs went crazy! All in all, it was very nice here!

After an arduous trip through the southern desert we finally collapsed in front of our oasis - Raven's Retreat. We spent a glorious 7 days and 6 nights here doing justice to Arches and Canyonlands. The wives loved the fully equipped gourmet kitchen while the guys equally appreciated the jacuzzi while "chugging" their brew. We utilized every amenity available here, but we especially enjoyed the soothing effect of three comfortable beds.
As we prepare to leave for the drudgery of life in So.Cal. we can only hope our return trip to Utah will be hastened by the Raven's call.

Thanks so much for making Raven's Retreat available to us and the incomparable (to us!) Chester, the German Shorthair. It was the perfect place to recover from a disappointing bout of road rash... Lots of home things, a movie, wonderful food... And despite one small skunk incident, Chester votes we should come back, with a resounding "Yes!' from us!
Peace be with you.

Thank you so much for giving families and their well-behaved dogs a warm and beautiful "home away from home." I, as others who have written in your book, have traveled a lot in my life and since becoming a "family",search for vacation homes where we will all feel comfortable. Hotels, even the 5 stars, leave me always feeling a guest. Instead, your home is perfect!! I can feel the love here and I really am happy to leave this message for you both. I will definitely recommend your lovely home here in Moab.
All of our best of wishes,

My sister and I spent our childhood years in Moab during the 50's. There were no televisions so every day was spent climbing the mountains and every night under the stars. Moab is in my bones - literally. We've come back to camp before but never for a long period of time. This trip has been a dream of mine and it met all my expectations. My husband and I arrived on Wednesday and our children - now grown - arrived shortly after with their sweethearts. We:
1. Took the Potash Road through the canyon and exited on Shafer Trail - Harrowing!
2. Hiked Trough Springs Trail near the Needles.
3. Hiked 036 abd 030 in the La Sals searching for Warner Lake - Never found it but the groves of aspens and Mill Creek were awe inspiring.
4. Hiked to Delicate Arch.
5. Drove up Pack Creek for a sunset.
6. Floated down the Colorado.
7. Rode horses through valleys.
Ravens Retreat was the perfect place to share our adventures every night...and rest our weary bones. We loved the sound of the stream, the cottonwoods, your beautiful home - and the kitchen where we exchanged conversation as we cooked up our evening feasts. The last night was fabulous. We climbed the hill to view the sunset and found a full moon shining bright above the LA Sal Mountains. Whew! Almost too much beauty to behold in a few moments of time.
Thank you for sharing your home. We will be back. Best spot to stay in Moab!

Great time again! We had a blast and YOU have helped make our adventure much more enjoyable. We were here for the half marathon, 5-mile run, bike ride and golf. It is so very nice to come back to Ravens Retreat to relax.
Truly a Treat at Ravens Retreat!
February 15-18, 2008
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. Among your collection of books, music and truly dog friendly attributes we truly felt welcomed by kindred spirits.
Our visit to your home could not have been better. The stone work is amazing and the hot tub made for the perfect ending to each day. Our dogs are our children, so being able to bring them with us and into a home, not a "pet room" in a hotel, has been wonderful.
We would love to know the owners, as we felt a true connection with them.
With deepest gratitude,

We've visited the Moab area for twenty years - since 1987. Ravens Retreat was by far the best place to stay that we have ever had in all these years. Truly a retreat. Quiet, comfortable, very well equipped and full of tastefully selected accessories. The whole interior is in a class of its own.
Pack Creek was a quiet neighbor even though it rushed down one night after a heavy thunderstorm. We also liked the raccoons we saw at night in the lights of our car.
Now - after a month - we leave with the knowledge of a great place to stay next time.

I had the good fortune to stumble across your website and was immediately captivated by the photos of your retreat. I was hoping for a "home away from home" to enjoy both common spaces and private spaces with my soul mate Ann, my son and his soulmate. Hot tub every night under the stars was incredible. Your retreat has exceeded all expectations! Thank you for creating such a welcoming environment to rest and refresh the soul.
June 10, 2007
Ditto, Ditto, Ditto! We just kept pinching ourselves every time we entered the living room. We just love this house, your choice of music, books and art. The care and love you have put into this place is sacred, echoing the healing magic of crow and raven, my power animal. We felt so at home and wished we could spend an evening with you two.
I yearn to return for a more introspective and creative time, perhaps to pursue my photography or meet with shamanic minded friends. In deepest gratitude.

I've been coming to Moab for years, but never in January, never with my dogs, and never to Ravens Retreat!! This place is fantastic! What a wonderful place to come home to after a day of hiking with the dogs. (P.S. NO ONE is on the trails!)
We've really been enjoying the hot tub, but this morning's dip was extra special. We had to shovel off 3" of snow before we got in - as the steam rose around us, we breathed in a virtual winter wonderland!!
Can't wait to come back - Ravens Retreat rocks!

I came here truly needing a retreat and I am leaving feeling restored. Your house and the property are beautiful, comfortable and peaceful, and I can tell you put much thought into the accommodations. I made much use of the music and book library and greatly appreciated the hot tub after my hikes.. Winter is a wonderful time to be in Moab, and Raven's Retreat deepened my experience. Thank you and I will be back! P.S. Happy New Year!
