Hole N" The Rock is a roadside attraction located in San Juan County, Utah, centered around a home carved out of a sandstone cliff. Albert Christensen began creating the home in 1940; the Christensen family moved into the home in 1952 and the site was opened to public tours after Albert's death in 1957. The adjacent Hole N" The Rock diner was opened in 1945 and operated until 1955. A petting zoo and gift shops were added to the site by subsequent owners. The attraction is a popular stop for visitors to southeastern Utah.

  • The Hole in the Rock is a cute little Place to explore, they have a petting Zoo with quite a few little animals and a 5000 square feet house in the rock which you can tour in about 15 minutes. Very unique little place. Bring some cash for souvenirs, petting Zoo and the house Tour 💵 Great Stop for little kids to get out and Run if you're driving.
  • This was interesting, I enjoyed the tour through the 5000 Square ft. House built under a huge mountain of had no heating system or sir conditioning because the type of thick rock it was built under keeps the temp between 65F and 72F year round. The tour runs when they have sold three or more. No long waits to take a tour. We did not eat there. Service we did experience was good. People were friendly, nice gift shop too.
