Serene, majestic, and private location in southern Rocky Mountains on 40 secluded acres at 9,000 feet elevation.
This setting is for those who love nature, peace, quiet, and outdoor beauty along with a chance to truly connect with those you bring with you to share this experience.
Location has fire pit, shower, toilet, fully equipped outdoor kitchen, picnic table, sink, firewood, and ice. Just bring food, beverages, your personal items, family and friends. Meals available - additional fee.
Breathtaking views in a private location on 40 secluded acres. Here you can truly get away from it all. A lot of creature comforts, but no electricity, internet, TV, etc. Water, ice, and firewood are brought in daily.
Owners/hosts live nearby and are a short walk away if you need anything. There are no other tipis on the property, so your experience will be completely private. You'll hear the wind in the trees, birds in the summer, and elk bugling in the fall. The wonderful smell of pine, cedar, and spruce will refresh you as you relax around the fire and fall asleep at night.
This tipi was made by Nomadic Tipi Makers who created the tipis in the movie Dances w/ Wolves. Custom-painted, this tipi features nature scenes, along with a mountain motif around the base, and phases of the moon near the top.
The 20-ft oval interior sleeps four (1 Queen, 2 twins) on heavenly comfortable beds (storage underneath) with 5-inch thick memory-foam mattresses. Snuggly down comforters, wool blankets and soft sheets ensure your warmth and comfort at night, as you stargaze through the smoke-hole of your tipi. Additional blankets are stored in bench seating.
FIREPIT and EVENING SKIES:
Log seating surrounds the firepit; wood is provided for each night's stay. The skies are black, and there are so many stars that it's difficult to find familiar constellations. You'll see the Milky Way arching across the sky at night.
The Perseid meteor shower occurs in mid-August, reaching peak activity around August 11-13. What a show! Be patient, and you'll see the International Space Station and other satellites passing overhead on clear nights.
KITCHEN and DINING:
Redwood picnic table and benches, dish washing sink (and detergent), authentic enamelware plates, bowls, cups, and spoons. Flatware, glasses, cooking utensils, pots, pans, dish towels, napkins, salt, pepper, sugar, french press coffee pot, and a campfire popcorn popper (popcorn provided). Locked container is for food and trash. Large cooler provided. Hosts remove trash daily and also bring additional ice and firewood for the day. Just bring food and beverages. Hot breakfast and dinner available for an additional fee. Arrange with hosts after booking.
SHOWER and TOILET:
Shower outdoors in a private enclosure that is open to sky, trees, and mountains. Individual solar shower is provided for each guest. Plush towels, body wash, shampoo, and conditioner are provided as well.
Toilet is in unique multi-wood outdoor enclosure. Toilet paper, air freshener, hand-sanitizer, hand towels and reading material appropriate to the setting are provided. :-)
