During this unique time in all our lives, we want you to be able to get away from the pressures of your daily life and feel safe. While staying with us, we promise that we will maintain all the safety regulations recommended by the Department of Health. In addition, we maintain two-four days between guest departure and guest arrival. All surfaces, bedding, and towels are disinfected. All cooking is done wearing a mask and new gloves. Since you are our only guests, your contact with the public is minimal. 

We invite you to come and relax, enjoy the panoramic views of the Sangres de Cristo Mountains during the day and the Milky Way with a myriad of stars overhead at night.

About your Casita Stay


In the morning, enjoy a hot breakfast cooked to your liking and served in the Casita at the time you choose or dine al fresco to enjoy the panoramic view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.  In the afternoon, enjoy a snack that is sure to please.  There are also homemade, freshly-baked cookies every day. At  night, sit in our stargazing chairs to marvel at the dark skies and canopy of stars unimpeded by city lights (see Dark Skies of the Wet Mountain Valley for more information about Stargazing Parties and current events). While walking our private ranch road, chances are you will not see another soul except for us.  Staying at our bed and breakfast is your own private getaway to relax and enjoy mountain living.    


We offer a variety of lodging amenities to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible. They include a king-sized bed, 3/4 bath with large walk-in shower, WIFI, satellite TV, sitting area, access to our ranch  and complete privacy.


Whether this is your first visit, or you have been a guest many times, we want your experience to be excellent. Phil and I are always available to help with any questions or concerns you may have about the lodging, happenings around the valley, dark skies or any thing else.  If we don't have an answer, we will help get one.
