Basil - is among the juniper trees and feels very private. At Sage View Ranch, you'll find that each campsite has its own charm whether it be in the midst of sagebrush, elm trees or tucked among the juniper trees. We have a year-round outdoor compost outhouse and a seasonal outdoor shower with a view. Aug 24th 2020 update - seasonal shower is off and unavailable until spring 2021. *When the shower isn’t available there is one available at the local Ultra Mat in Hotchkiss, a short 10 minutes away. (which is located by a FANTASTIC restaurant named Zack’s BBQ). Walk the property, enjoy the mountain views, smell the sage, meet the goats, say hello to the free-range chickens, sit by the pond (during season), have an evening fire in the community fire pit (fire ban permitting), and sit with your favorite beverage to take in the sunset. This 11.5-acre rustic ranch offers the feel of being out in the country yet you can walk next door for coffee, breakfast, and wine tasting. Walk, bike or drive less than 1 mile and you are in the center of Paonia where you can enjoy a farm to table restaurants, local breweries, art, maybe a movie or musical at the theater (built in 1928), maybe enjoy one of the many local fun festivities. For nature enthusiasts rent a paddleboard, raft or kayak and ride a local waterway, visit the Grand Mesa, Needle rock, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Blue Mesa reservoir, Colorado National Monument, Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area and so much more! As basecamp there are so many wonderful day adventures such as a drive to Aspen, Telluride, Moab, or even take Kebler pass to Crested Butte and after all the sightseeing you may want to visit the hot springs of your choice. Most importantly, we invite you to Experience the View!
