Property description

This is the perfect place to get away and look at the stars, swing into the idyllic sunset, or create your next group of art works. The property is very secluded and surrounded by protected land with mountain views and the most gorgeous sunsets. You can literally walk off the back patio and in a few minutes be in the middle of nowhere with no houses in sight, find trails and rusty treasures, and be startled by jackrabbits.

There is a fireplace, outdoor fire-pit, tikki bar, BBQ, 2 swing sets, art studios, outdoor shower, and horse tub....basically everything you could desire for a FANTASTIC time! This is a very special place, and the home and patios are handicapped and wheelchair accessible.

In the summer, the swamp cooler, horse tub, and outdoor shower are hi-lights. In the winter, the indoor and outdoor fireplaces and propane patio heater make for a cozy stay. There are many animals year round, including chipmunks, jack rabbits, roadrunners, quail, coyotes, etc. There is a bird feeder (seed provided) which is always bursting with activity.

The cabin is close to several local hot spots and a local guide and map are provided, though many guests don't leave the property after arrival.
