You (and your pets) will find serenity on the property with little sound besides distant dogs, nearby birds and the wind brushing through the trees.
This is a certified dark sky area where you will see more stars than feels possible!
Mostly, we want you to have a place to rest your head before venturing back into Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.
We may not have much to offer by way of amenities, but you won’t find solace, comfort and beauty like this from the side of the highway!

The space
You will find multiple outdoor seating areas that will allow you to view the dunes, Blanca Peak and Mt. Herard.
You should expect to see deer, quail, owls, elk, turkeys, and possibly even coyotes as well.
Inside you can rest with cozy blankets, natural light, heaters or fans, and your choice of books to read or games to play.

You will find your own private outdoor area with perfect sunset views! Our HOA prohibits fire pits, but there is a charcoal grill for use when there is no fire ban, and sitting outside you can enjoy native birds galore. Remember, there is no smoking (no 420 or cigarettes), no drugs and no partying on the property. Voices carry far over open spaces - so please be aware of noise levels.

With a comfy queen bed, pull-out sofa bed and an incredibly comfortable cot, you and your friends can find a nice home during your visit.

Got kids? We have books, coloring books and games if you find yourself indoors. Don’t worry, there are games and books for adults, too!

With a mini-fridge to store some groceries or beverages, a microwave and an electric 2-burner stovetop, you can make meals or heat water for coffee and tea. The kitchenette is stocked with pots and pans, dishes and glasses, toaster and mini-waffle-iron, and - of course - coffee maker and French press.

We have a water bowl and dog beds if you are bringing pets along (let us know so we can put them out!). Extra pillows, blankets, heater fan, AC and lamps will keep you cozy as you rest for your impending adventures.

Guest access
There is a charcoal grill available with some charcoal and paper to start it. Just let us know ahead of time so we can have it ready with some charcoal bricks as long as we are not in a stage 2 fire ban.

The “kitchen” area in your loft includes a two-burner (cast iron) hot plate as well as anything you might need for basic cooking and eating. There is a toaster, mini-waffle and pancake irons and coffee station.
We now have a mini-fridge and microwave so you can come from adventures to a nice cold beverage!

Other things to note
Remember you will not have access to running water. There is a foot-pumped sink perfect for hand-washing, teeth-brushing and all your small sink needs! You will have a clean, comfortable Lugga-Loo toilet system but don’t expect any frills!
This property is no 420, no cigarettes and no drugs. Pets- yes! Just let us know so we can have dog bed available and the fresh water bowl ready :)

Location

Mosca, Colorado, United States

This is a private community only four miles from the Sand Dunes. You will be minutes from the National Park and only a short drive from multiple state park and wildlife protection areas.

Alamosa is an easy 30 minute trip where you will find various restaurants, local breweries, coffee shops, the Rio Grande River and railroad, as well as any shopping you may need.

Crestone is less than an hour away; Hooper hot springs and Colorado’s UFO Watchtower are only 30 minutes away!

Our property backs up to BLM land which means no closeby neighbors besides deer.

If you enjoy a morning stroll, the road continues about a half mile to a dead end, a walk that takes you past only nature toward the beautiful sand dunes and mountain views. If you want a memorable sunrise or sunset, you won’t have to go far!
