Gorgeous views

“What a great time and beautiful area! Gorgeous views from the yurt site and day hike trails. Perfect distance from any other houses to be secluded but also not too far for a quick excursion back to the car and Red River if desired. All the expected basics that were included in the listing were there at the yurt…. Highly recommend to anyone considering.”

Definitely… should visit

“The day I biked here there was hardly anyone here and I had views of Wheeler Peak and back into Red River all to myself. Additionally, there are the yurts you can rent and hike/ski/bike into during any season. This is definitely a chunk of the New Mexico wilderness you should visit. I will definitely keep coming back.”

Cute little hideaway

“Be ready to educate your family regarding yurts. A great hike to the top of the ski area. A cute little hideaway complete with bunk beds, wood burning stove, propane camp stove and lantern. Enjoy eating around the firepit or around the large dining room table inside. It’s not really roughing it unless you aren’t fond of outhouses.”
