Tom was an absolute pleasure to deal with and the only thing more impressive than his graciousness was the amazingness of the property! We had 8 men stay for three nights on the property and made daytrips out to Grand Mesa and Black Canyon of the Gunnison. The property is wonderfully maintained, and rustic enough to really enrich the overall vibe of the outing. There is a very decently appointed kitchen and it was great to have a shower and toilet onsite aswell. I can't say enough great things about Tom and George and this property-- it was an absolute PLEASURE from start to finish and if you've read this far, read no further than my whole hearted and emphatic recommendation that you BOOK NOW!

Brian was great to work with. His planning for this event is the main reason his group's trip was such a success. Because Brian wasn't bashful about asking questions and clarifying what he was planning to accomplish, we both worked together and evidently made his plans turn into success. Maybe we'll see Brian or some of his attending friends return with their families for stays in the future.

The yurt was amazing. It's fully stocked with everything you'd need - cookware, grill, bedding, towels. I overpacked not knowing exactly what would be there. We enjoyed exploring the property and having nightly fires in the firepit that was stocked with a mega firewood supply. The stars at night were amazing - saw the milky way every night as well as planets! The views from the deck overlooking the valley are beautiful. It's secluded but not too far from town when we needed to run in to grab some food and is really convenient to explore Grand Mesa. We spent our days in Grand Mesa National Forest hiking and settled back at the yurt each afternoon to relax, have dinner and a fire. The yurt was clean and our host George was so friendly and kind. I knew he was right up the road in case I had any questions or needed help with anything. I'd highly recommend staying at the Yurt at Screwball Ranch for a little getaway and to explore the Grand Mesa area!

This yurt exceeded our expectations. It was clean, fully stocked (extra supplies even), and the views were amazing. The owners thought of everything! We had a great time.

The Yurt was a wonderful experience. It is perched on the edge of a plateau with a fantastic view of the valley below. Watching the full moon come up while sitting on the deck was quite an experience. Even more fun was shooting clays off of a cliff ledge on the Yurt's very private property. Very nice having a couple of acres of fenced property around the Yurt that easily kept in a shitzu, mini-pitt, and large hound.
