This structure is part of an overall experimental building project we have had going for 15 years. There are other structures on the property made from recycled materials including 'papercrete.' Free dust: it is the desert. You should not expect the Ritz Carlton, but if you have some flexibility and half a 'hippie bone' left in your body, this might be the place for you to expand. Come see us, share some travel stories and relax under and amazing milky way. BYO wood for inside fireplace.

The space
Built by wandering Stone Mason, who started by enclosing his trailer with local rock and added lovely bedroom with a fireplace.We are in the desert not in the forest , so please bring your own wood if you're planning to have a fire,which we do recommend.
Stone Cottage it's single , private unit.
Kitchenette has all basics.. mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven and double hot plate.
French co. Grocer in town has also basics(and some specialty items).
Propane wall heater , fireplace,electric blanket and mini electric heater should keep you warm during cold days.
You cannot use all the electric appliances at the same time , it will blow the breaker (which is located just outside on the wall).
WiFi is available in the house and around the property.

Guest access
Space deck where you have the best view of Marathon and at night the Milky way

Other things to note
Rough country here . We don't have a paved road ...on purpose.
