Our guests come to us seeking an experience. We are a small permaculture ranch nestled in a lush La Plata Mountain valley, between Mancos and Durango. We will welcome you into this cozy yurt with home-baked pastries (will accommodate allergies.) You will have a private space with outdoor seating and access to 83 acres to revive your spirit. We also offer the services of a professional chef and professional violinist.
Come experience the yurt life! Our bed and breakfast lets you try using solar energy, a sawdust composting toilet, and a wood stove. You can observe life on a permaculture ranch and relish the freedom of 83 acres.
Enjoy the amenities of home after a long day on the road. We will welcome you with something sweet and farm fresh eggs . We have 200 gallons of running water, a warm shower, a full kitchen, and an herb garden at your disposal.
Enjoy the luxury of a professionally prepared full breakfast, personally packed lunch, charcuterie board, fruit tray, cheese board, wine, chocolates, cut flowers, or romantic candlelit dinner accompanied by a professional violinist. Please call in advance to add these on to your stay, so we can prepare them to your specifications.
Our ranch straddles Cherry Creek. You will likely see our goats, horses, dogs, llama, and some wildlife as you sit by the creek in what is becoming an edible permaculture garden. The kids can enjoy the garden within the safe confines of a willow fence.
You will have access to 83 acres to explore. We will provide you with a tour of our growing spaces, as well as a small sample of its bounty. You will find fresh eggs from our chickens in your refrigerator.
Interaction with guests
We have strong community support on the ranch. Feel free to ask us to point you towards good hikes, sites, and restaurants. We also have a basket of pamphlets full of information.
Other things to note
The GPS will drop you off 2 miles too soon. Keep going! We are located 5.5 miles down the dirt road. It can be muddy in the spring, so be prepared.
Please pick up after yourself.
