STAY IN A TRUE WESTERN ABANDONED GHOST TOWN
This was the original post office for the town and it closed down in the 1990s. I have completely renovated it into a tiny guest house. There is no running water, however there is an outhouse for a more authentic ghost town experience :)
There is a fire pit, A/C, wifi and scenic views all around. Plenty of wildlife, lots of migrating birds. Guaranteed no loud neighbors but 45 minutes away from arches and Moab.
Mail still gets delivered to the p.o. boxes so please do not park in front of them.
Experience staying in a real ghost town in the desert! Cisco was built in the 1880s and became abandoned when the freeway was built nearby. Your abode for the night is the original post office which closed it’s doors in the 90s. There are many other buildings in Cisco, none of which are currently inhabited and most of which are in a state of decay adding to the spooky ghost town feel.
45 minutes away from Arches National Park and one hour from Canyonlands National Park, this is a great spot to settle in for the night after a day of exploring Utah’s awesome landscapes. Please note the nearest towns are Moab and Grand Junction, both slightly less than an hour away. Be sure to gas up and grab any supplies you may want before heading to Cisco!
The post office offers A/C, free wi-fi, great scenic views, ample wildlife and use of a fire pit. There is no running water but there is a private outhouse not far from your doorstep. At night the town is very quiet, no loud neighbors like you might have at one of the crowded campgrounds around the national parks. During the day you may hear trains, as there are tracks running near the town. There is also moderate traffic during the day since there is a river rafting drop off site a couple miles away. Your host, Eileen, lives across the street in the 1950s airstream trailer and will be happy to help with anything you need. We're looking forward to having you!
