At 8,000 ft in altitude the clear crisp air is refreshing by day and gives way to a night sky blanketed by billions of stars. A few days or weeks in this magnificent setting offer a perspective that can often yield breakthrough insights. Whether you're a visual artist, writer, or musician, creative inspiration abounds in this high desert/mountain retreat setting.

Walking trails are just a matter of opening the front gate, and for the serious hiker the Kit Carson National Forest––with trails to the Latir Wilderness––is less than a mile away.

Looking out from the living room to the east, crows dance in the breeze while the occasional hawk or eagle catches a thermal high above the snow capped (September through June) peaks.
