In Southwest Colorado 3 miles west of Paonia, is a Yurt nestled on a large wraparound redwood deck anchored by two mature Elms. The building is situated in close proximity to the North Fork of the Gunnison River. The Yurt is a sanctuary far removed from neighbors and below the sight-line and activity of Highway 133.The property meanders above and below the Yurt for a quarter of a mile along the river’s edge. There are established wildlife corridors for Elk and Deer. Eagles, Red Tailed Hawks, and Blue Herons nest on the property or directly across the river. Robins routinely inhabit the trees directly above the sheltering Yurt.
When entering the 700 square foot Yurt, a 14’ high skylight inset in a mad array of knotty Aspen, draws you to its center. Here the fireplace anchors the middle and the remaining amenities unwind to the outside of the circumference. Here there is full ADA kitchen and ADA bathroom, queen size bed, dining table, and sitting area. The surrounding river, mountains and cultivated farmland can be viewed ten different ways through 8 windows and 2 French doors. Think of a random compass point and there you will find a window framing your gaze. There is an openness seldom seen in standard structures. After rubbernecking for a while, your first coherent thought is, ‘I can relax here’. And the reality is, you can.
'In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy. '

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: My name is George W. Hall III and I am a Sculptor with a masters in architecture from UCLA that built the VRBO property specifically for his 85 year old sculptor father. George w. Hall Jr. needed a place close to us to make sculpture,draw,read,and enjoy his remaining years with his golden retriever until the big thumb came out of the sky and squashed them both. We had the perfect location and you are looking at the result of a sons love of his father.The main house, not the rental, was placed on the Colorado Historical Register through the tireless efforts of my wife Devon VanDusen. Trust me, Without her input, your stay would be less enjoyable.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The property is 35 acres that meanders along the North Fork of the Gunnison River. There are 3 small tended fields on the upper sections of the property.This is where the brick house that is on the state register is situated. The lower sections range from unmanicured meadows with random succulents to stands old growth cottonwoods on the river bank. In the center of these trees stands a primitive 30'Yurt in its own natural clearing.
