Rules and Policies

Canyonlands Guest Lodging Business Trust



Any reservation made more than 30 days prior to your arrival date requires a down payment up to %50 of the total rental charges. Reservations made within 30 days of your arrival date require 100% payment to confirm your reservation.


All cancellations are refundable, less a 7% reservation fee, if canceled more than 30 days (for cabins) or 90 days (for lodges) prior to scheduled check-in date. All cancellations must be made in writing (email preferred, fax or letter is acceptable). For cancellations less than 30 days (cabins) or 90 days (lodges) before check-in date, any and all payments are forfeited, unless dates are booked and paid for again by another party.(“Cabins” include: Ranch Cabin, White Pine Cabin, Clayborn Cabin, Bunkhouse Cabin, Four Corners Loft, Recapture Cabin, the Mt. Peale Cabins, Moab Guest Cabin, Moab Riverhouse, and Moab Rockhouse. “Lodges” include: Blue Mnt. Lodge, Camp Jackson Lodge/Retreat, and Grist Mill Lodge).


If you are concerned that you may need to cancel due to a death in the family or other unforeseeable event, we strongly recommend Purchasing “All Season Travel Insurance”, which we make available to you at the time of booking. The coverage can be purchased up until the final reservation payment is made or 30 days prior to arrival, whichever comes first. If a booking is made within 30 days of the scheduled arrival date, you can purchase the insurance the day of the booking only.
Your ASTI policy will be issued to you automatically via email, as soon as the reservation is confirmed.

Description of Coverage


Payment in full is due no later than 30 (thirty) days prior to check-in date. Payments made by credit/debit card may be subject to a 1.9% booking fee (American Express cards may have an additional fee). If sufficient time permits, the remaining balance (after down payment) may be paid via check or money order, sent to our po box, thus eliminating any related credit card transaction fee. If you wish to pay via check or money order, you must contact us to request the final balance due, less credit card fee. If payment for remaining balance is not received by the due date, we reserve the right to cancel the reservation, if an attempt to contact the guest is unsuccessful.


Pets are NOT allowed inside any rental unit for any reason, except at the following locations: Moab Guesthouse, Moab Rockhouse, Moab Riverhouse, Bunkhouse Cabin, and Clayborn Cabin. (Pets fees will apply during your booking process). A maximum number of 2 pets are allowed at any of the locations mentioned above, and must be disclosed to us before your arrival. Any and all pets must be kept on a leash while outdoors, and under no circumstances may any pet be left unattended while you occupy the residence. If pets are allowed inside any rental unit, other than those afore mentioned, or if there are more than 2 pets in your party, an immediate $250 fine will be assessed and your party may be asked to vacate the rental unit, thus forfeiting any reservation payments.


All our properties are non-smoking. You must not be within 25 feet of any rental unit while smoking. All cigarette butts must be disposed of properly. An immediate $250 fine will be charged if evidence of smoking is found inside the unit, and you may be asked to vacate the property, thus forfeiting any reservation payments.


Some cabins and cottages (large properties excluded) have different rates per number of guests. (Usually $10 – $25 per person after the first 2 people). During the booking process an accurate number of guests must be disclosed. If guest count decreases prior to arrival, please notify us at least 24 hours before check-in, otherwise the original agreed-upon price must be paid. If your party has more guests than are disclosed in the rental agreement which are not disclosed to us prior to arrival, you may be charged double for each additional guest per night, and towels/linens may not be adequate for more guests than were scheduled. We urge you to be honest in disclosing the accurate numbers of guests, as the owner/manager is likely to check-in during your stay.


During your booking process you will have the option of purchasing Accidental Rental Damage Insurance, rather than paying a hefty damage/security deposit. Accidental Rental Damage Insurance covers you in the event any damage is caused ACCIDENTALLYwhile you occupy the property. The Accidental Rental Damage Insurance provides coverage up to $1,500 for cabins, and up to $3,000 for lodges. With this Insurance you and your traveling companions will not be obligated to pay for accidental damage to the rental unit you occupy, unless the damages exceed the coverage amount – in which case you (the renter) are responsible for any and all additional costs of repairs/replacement. Accidental Rental Damage Insurance must be requested before your date of arrival. You cannot purchase said insurance after your arrival.

When reserving large properties you are required to purchase ARDI. Your ARDI policy will be issued to you automatically via email, as soon as the reservation is paid-in-full.
