Arrive to a mini ranch with donkeys serenading your arrival. If you're lucky, you might even have goat and chicken visitors as you relax on the patio that overlooks the mountain range directly in front. Take a short walk in the sagebrush and admire the unique rock formations. Get the experience of camping with the comforts of a queen mattress and comfortable rugs under your feet.  Solar lights illuminate the interior and exterior of the tent. The solar bank is small and likely wouldn't last all night, but will last most of the night. There is a usb portal for charging phones during the day when the sun is out. A gallon of drinking water will be provided inside the tent, we are happy to refill if needed. We are conveniently located off of Highway 13 between the towns of Rifle and Meeker, however this means that you can hear traffic noise. It does become more quiet in the evenings

Kathleen and her farm are awesome!! The tent was very cozy and well put together. The goats Lana and Pinto went on a hike with us and Kathleen did everything she could to help us feel welcome :)

Loved this super cute spot! The farm was full of friendly animals, and the tent was very comfy and cozy during the rain.
