Other things to note
BEFORE ARRIVAL: It is advisable to stock up on food/drinks for your stay. Fresh all cotton linens are supplied, towels also for shower or use at Hot Springs.
PETS: We love pets (dogs & cats), and one or two small pets are possible. We treat each pet as an additional guest therefore appropriate fees apply. Pets are not allowed on the furniture including beds, sofa, dinette seating.
Because Airbnb currently does not allow an option for a pet fee, we ask that you treat your pet as an additional guest and use the 'additional guest tab' when booking. We accept up to two (2) additional guests maximum. In the event you are bringing additional guests AND pets, go ahead and book your additional guests using the 'extra guest' tab. The pet fee can be addressed in person or through the Airbnb resolution center.
Be aware coyotes do inhabit the valley floor and the area surrounding Red Cloud Ranch. While it is rare for a coyote to wander onto the property, they are attracted to domestic animals so it is advisable to not let your pet out of sight while accommodating at the ranch.
At no time can pets be 'left behind' while guests are out day-tripping, shopping or otherwise. We cannot take on the responsibility of looking after or out for your pet while you are away from basecamp.
ABOUT PAST REVIEWS HIGHLIGHTING CANCELLATIONS: On the very rare occasion (twice) in early Spring and late Autumn we have had to cancel bookings on short notice. This only ever occurs due to the onset of severe weather. Refunds are issued immediately with a well meaning apology. We are located at 8000 feet and during these periods weather can not only be unpredictable but dangerous for the traveller heading our way. We do our very best to accommodate all bookings. Thank you for your support and understanding!
Civilized is best. Party all night or go to bed early. Smoking is fine but not in the Avion.
NOTE ABOUT PETS: We love pets and treat any pet (Dog or Cat) as an additional guest and charge as such per pet. Pets are not allowed on furniture including beds, sofa or dinette.

Red Cloud Ranch is the ideal basecamp for exploring the great San Luis Valley. We are situated at 8,000 feet in the water-rich north end of the valley, one mile from Joyful Journey Hot Springs and at the base of the Sangre De Christo mountain range and its 14,000 foot peaks located due east. In sight and to the west is the continental divide and the 14,000 peaks of the San Juan range. In all directions, the view from Red Cloud is stunning. After dark, light a fire and enjoy the view. At this altitude, and with almost zero light distraction, you can see the stars past the stars. If the night sky is your thing, you will want to tote your telescope. And enjoy pristine drinking water pumped from our well.
