Gorgeous and interesting property
Desert Sanctuary is a wonderful place to spend a few days ( at least). Dana, the owner, is very laid back and kind. He is quick to respond and attentive to his guests. There is a 4 mile drive on a well maintained and wide gravel road. The property is very well maintained and very interesting. The sites are level but bigger rigs might have some issues with maneuvering. You can tell the owner is continually improving the site and amenities. We look forgot a return visit.
We had an outstanding visit to the Sanctuary! The peace and quiet were soothing to the soul. Dana, the host, couldn’t have been nicer and made sure we had everything we needed for a great weekend stay. If you love the desert, then you will love this place.
Off the beaten track gem
Dana was a generous and accomodating host. Perfect quiet getaway/retreat. Hot outdoor showers, hot tub, swimming pool. It would be perfect for a getaway, vacation, or a much needed respite from being on the road. Loved it!
Curious friendly funky worthwhile
Great location in eastern Arizona, intriguing property history... if only the walls could talk. We had no issues with the dirt road to the property (2WD truck and 23’ trailer) but after a rain I might be hesitant to travel the road. Really great amenities: pool, hot tub, funky game room... stars and peace at night were incredible. Dana, the host was very friendly and accommodating. He was eager to make our stay as pleasant as possible (and it was!). RV sites with hookups had the hookups installed at the fronts of the sites; Dana said he planned to move them back after the current season (No problem for us as we travel with a long water line and long extension cord just in case). We were able to back into our site and get level with some effort. We felt perfectly safe (also traveling with 2 and 4 year old boys).
Fun funky historical peaceful!
What a fun place to stay! I ended up staying 8 nights. Interesting history and just the right balance of amenities and eclectic/unique features. Dana is a terrific host--there when you need him, leaves you alone when you don't! I was very impressed with his ability to accommodate everyone's individual wants with grace and flexibility. This would be a really great place to have a family reunion or other gathering. A word of caution: To avoid frustration, if you need online connectivity, don't depend on wifi; check your phone coverage instead!
We were just there for an overnight stay with a small RV. We very much enjoyed our interactions with Dana and the experience of staying in this somewhat remote camp. With our small RV we usually rely on bathrooms and showers in the camp, but we had not expected that these facilities are outside. Since the nights were quite cold this was not optimal. During warmer seasons this would be just fine though.
