Arches National Park

If you haven’t experienced the vast array of colors in a sunset over the towering high desert red rock formations, we’re sorry to say you haven’t really lived yet! The energy of the rocks combined with the whispering breeze present in this vast natural phenomenon will truly take your breath away. Arches National Park is aptly named, as it is home to over 2,000 natural stone arches, not to mention hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant rocks naturally balanced atop each other in a way that will have you scratching your head and wondering, “How on earth did they get there?” The views will calm as you find a newfound rejuvenation on the trails in this rock formation wonderland.

What to Do at Arches National Park

As with any National Park, we just wouldn’t be a proper guide if we didn’t recommend you start your visit with a peek at the Arches Visitor Center, located just one mile inside the park entrance. This is a great spot to get up-to-date information on what sites are open, which ranger programs are scheduled that day, not to mention using the facilities and keeping your water bottles filled during your visit to Arches National Park in Utah!

Once you’re past the Visitor Center and have navigated your first stretch of switchback roads, you’ll embark on an adventure through Park Avenue and the Courthouse Towers area – named because the sheer walls of the canyon reminded visitors of walking through city streets lined with tall buildings. With gorgeous views of the La Sal Mountains in the distance, you’ll love walking through these massive monoliths and towering walls of red rock.

Next, visit the teetering giant of Balanced Rock while you still can. This iconic sandstone rock stands at a teetering 128 feet tall and looks like it’s balanced atop a pedestal of mudstone, but in actuality, the two are really attached. While together they defy gravity, eventually the 3,600-ton boulder will come crashing down. All the more reason to visit sooner than later.

Next comes the arches. With so many ways to view and experience these beauties, you may never want to leave Arches National Park. Make sure you have your camera handy when you view The Windows Section, a two square mile radius containing a large concentration of arches that will blow your mind. Definitely pay a visit to Delicate Arch, the park’s largest free-standing arch measuring 46’ high and 32’ wide. And finally, don’t forget to check out Devils Garden, located at the end of the park road (approximately 18 miles from the Visitor’s Center). Here you’ll get a first-hand view of Landscape Arch, the longest arch in the park, extending a whopping 306 feet!

Beautiful, clean home with perfect location. Everything was 5 minutes away. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. Communication was incredibly prompt. The blender was broken and after letting the hosts know, they had it replaced within the hour without even being asked, which was super appreciated. We highly recommend!

We had a blast! Totally exceeded expectations! This property is really a big “compound” with two houses. Super clean, comfortable and spacious. It has a luxury resort feel, which made for an incredibly relaxing weekend even with a really large group. There are so many places to sit and relax with the group or on your own. Coolest amenities we liked were: **The pool and hot tub - pool has a waterfall plus it was heated and big enough for our large group. Gorgeous place for a night time swim. **Movie & Game Room - loved the movie-size projection screen. Great for watching football while playing pool, air hockey, etc **The private electric gate - has a door opener and gate that lets you drive several cars right up to the doors in between the two houses plus 2 garage parking spots. Very convenient for unloading and for securely parking a boat trailer or RV. This house was immaculate and well taken care of. Definitely coming back next time we’re in Havasu. Highly recommended!

We have stayed in Airbnb’s all over the world! We really loved this one. I think it’s well rounded and precisely what anyone needs; whether that is for large groups, couples, romantic, homey, open, cozy, functional etc. it’s a bit off town so perfect for quiet and calm. We did hear neighbors a few times, it was never at night. We slept well, there are many beds to choose from certainly. Laundry room is accessible and convenient to bedrooms. Decorating is lovely and charming. Kitchen is great, and stocked for anything you’d like to cook basically. It is clean and very well kept… NO SHOES! Remember that rule! It’s why we rented… It should be a rule anywhere. The national parks are all within driving distance and often quite dirty. This is an excellent rental and we would stay here over and over. I have rarely felt as such for other locations or home. Thanks

Outstanding location - hiking, fishing, a short distance from the house and great small town shopping opportunities. Well equipped home, nothing lacking in terms of kitchen items, bathing needs, and hot tub. beautiful vistas from most rooms in the house. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely.

We had a terrific time at the property. Everything was like new! Great amenities and the booster chair and pack-n-play were perfect for my 2 year old.

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. Very clean and spacious. Well stocked with kitchen essentials and then some. Had a good variety of games to play, and for the little kids they had blocks and a little play area under the stairs. Communication was great, didn’t have any issues. Will definitely stay again!

Rented three units. We had a total of 14 people. The three units gave everyone privacy when needed and allowed for easy gatherings and meals together. Everyone in the party loves the places and would rent again! Location is great and the units themselves were awesome! Very clean, spacious and well stocked. We had no issues at all. Main activities for the week were mountain biking, hiking, 4-wheeling and sight seeing. I highly recommend these rentals!!

Really beautiful property here, smells new. Nice finishes and very comfortable furniture. Close to everything in town and a stones throw from the trails. Can’t wait to return!
