Treat yourself to a retreat within the sacred space of this ancient architecture. Lounge on the futons by candlelight. Gaze at the stars through the top of the tipi. Spend some time exploring the sandstone outcroppings. Follow the loop trail. Be prepared with a sleeping bag, food, flashlight, and other supplies when you arrive at our remote location for this camping experience.

The space
The tipi is located privately on 39 acres of beautiful high desert. There is a clean outhouse with a composting toilet. We provide a jug of delicious filtered rainwater. There are two double futons in this space, and room for a few more folks to borrow our sleeping pads or just curl up on the carpeted floor. Bring your own camping gear like sleeping bags, a pillow if you need one, and flashlights, and check the temperatures for Cerrillos, NM online if you want to camp in colder weather. We are a high elevation so it can get cold at night. If you request to book during the winter, please explain that you are prepared for it in your request. Very small fires are allowed in the tipi firepit inside. Often just a candle is great. Please note that while the tipi is a beautiful and historic architecture, it is not completely enclosed from the outdoors like a tent. During this time with Covid restrictions, we are not allowing guest access to the community kitchen. Please bring all you need for this camping experience.

Where you’ll be

Madrid, New Mexico, United States

We are in an off-grid area, a mile and a half down a dirt road, where the neighbors all wave to each other upon passing. Cell phone service is spotty in these hills and valleys. The land is beautiful and has a peaceful cozy feeling. You can take a daytime hike 40 minutes into the funky artist village of Madrid to get a coffee or a beer or check out the galleries and shops. There is plenty of land to explore here. We explain during your orientation the best places to go and not go.

The first thing you will notice about us is that we are pretty into sustainability. We love living the life we have created here at Ampersand Sustainable Learning Center. We love the land all around, and we love sharing the joys of this life with others by offering this experiential opportunity. We also both enjoy a lot of time on our own to get lost in creative activities. Andy likes writing, playing guitar, making mead, and composting. Amanda is into native and edible plants, designing appropriate technologies, and creating inspiring spaces. We can also be fun loving and a bit silly.

During your stay
The tipi is located at Ampersand Sustainable Learning Center, where we experiment with and demonstrate solar designs, wise water systems, permaculture, land restoration, natural building and other aspects of self sufficiency. Our guests may wander the site to have a look. In the summer the outdoor community kitchen is open and could be a great place to connect with others staying on site. Sometimes we host classes and events, sometimes we are working hard on a project. Sometimes we have interns. The nearby cottages may also be booked for a retreat. We are happy to chat with you a bit about our work and the general area. Some guests arrange to stay longer as as part of our Sustainable Living Residency program. We give tours of the sustainable systems in our demonstration site that last an hour and a half. You can find us on airbnb experiences(Tour a Sustainable Living Center). If you are interested, let us know. We may be able to find a time that works with your schedule. You can easily find Ampersand Sustainable Learning Center's website to get a better sense of our place.
