Our 10 acre property is located in the 'Hogbacks' where the Great Plains meet the foothills of the Rocky Mountains - with a variety of rocks, wildflowers, grasses, and pine trees. You may be lucky enough to see hummingbirds, bats, or the native Whiptail lizard. Stroll some of the built out trails or find your own walking path.

There are two houses on the property, in addition to the sleeper cabin. Myself and a friend reside in these, respectively. While these are our homes, we absolutely encourage you to roam and wander wherever you please! 

Within 10 minutes, you can be in the historic town of Las Vegas - visit the numerous highly-rated antique shops, get a smothered burrito, visit the local college bar The Skillet for a beverage or the classic Castaneda hotel for an upscale dinner and cocktail. Another 10 minutes will get you to Montezuma Hot Springs and the United World College castle in the mountains. A 45 minute drive to the stunning Hermit's Peak trailhead in the Pecos Wilderness. Take the Amtrak train in town to Santa Fe or Albuquerque! So much to see and do...

Humble retreat for weary travellers

Upon our after hours arrival at the Juniper Valley Sleeper, we immediately concluded that the most fitting word for this space is "quaint". The cabin was unlocked and the instructions are posted on the wall, which made check in seamless. In describing the stay to friends, I would say this is the perfect place to retreat. A safe abode. I tucked myself under the heavy covers, after drinking a beer and brushing my teeth with the water from my Nalgene, and slept peacefully to the lull of the fan. They truly provided all the things necessary to retreat without distractions. At night, I listened to the hum of crickets through the screen windows and felt cool throughout the night with the provided fan. For breakfast, we used the French press and Colman stove to cook food we brought. It should be noted that the space has wifi, so it is not entirely off the grid, but is still an experience that requires some prep work. Be sure to bring your own water and be slightly prepared with awareness for how to pack out your trash and waste. There are trash cans provided, so trash can be properly disposed of. All in all, this is a thoughtfully minimalistic space perfect for a solo retreat into New Mexico.

Sunrise over the New Mexico landscape, peaking through the trees. I would later realize we were on top of the large ledge that marked our turn into the property. The space is small, but the perfect place to change clothes or sleep through the night. You should be prepared to work, rest, or take trips to nearby places during the day. From the door the bed, a spacial observation. The hosts provided plates, tea cups, silverware, the Colman stove, and a can of propane for our stay. Thank goodness, because I left my stove at home!
