Located exactly halfway between Salt Lake and Moab, The Store is a historic 113 year-old general store building that originally served the coal miners who lived and worked in the small former mining town of Kenilworth. We purchased the building four years ago and have been bootstrapping our way slowly through its renovation. Our vision is to reinvent the Store as a creative retreat, arts space and desert permaculture site. We have ample indoor co-working, art studio and workshop space should you like to be productive during your stay. Or simply relax and enjoy the peace, quiet and serenity that this mountain sanctuary provides. We are also surrounded by wilderness and outdoor recreation opportunities, including endless hiking, mountain biking and ATV trails. The nearby artists colony of Helper has lots of amenities and offerings including a floatable river with beaches and swimming holes. Within 30 minutes’ drive are several major tourist attractions such as Nine Mile Canyon, a large waterfall, and the San Rafael Swell.Enjoy a tiny house vibe with a king sized bed, nestled in the middle of our garden. Just outside the bus is a picnic area with table and chairs. You’ll also have access to shared spaces inside the Store - a bathroom with shower, and co-working space with gigabit wifi. The bus has A/C for hot days when you just want to lounge and a space heater for chilly nights.

So cute 😊, great experience!
Incredible. The bus is adorable, and it was wonderful to see what Oran has done with the store. His passion for creativity is astounding and he is very driven! The garden was the perfect spot for morning coffee, and the area is extremely quiet. The bus was nice and warm and very clean. Oran was great company and ensured I was happy and comfortable 😊.

The Blue Bus was a great stay! Since it is early April I was prepared to be cold, yet with the heater and extra blankets provided it was very comfortable. The space was very clean and cozy.

Oran was a wonderful host and went above and beyond to make me feel welcome and comfortable. Recommended if you are looking to camp without having to deal with a tent in a very interesting and inspiring environment.
