Cute & cozy hut

The sheepherder hut is cute and cozy! I especially liked that it is a bit more private than the other huts on the property and we were very warm with the heated mattress. The cantina space was excellent and so convenient. The views from the property are beautiful. The front building with restrooms and showers was clean and well maintained.
A few things to note - with other campers in every hut, there is not much privacy - making friends with your neighbors is the way to go! The cantina can get a little crowded at breakfast and dinner time so bringing our campstove turned out to be a good idea. The neighbors in the town do make noise as warned (lots of barking dogs & polka/mariachi music in the evening) so bring earplugs if that bothers you!

Good location and nice, clean setup in kitchen and bathrooms. Easy check in. There are lots of barking dogs at night so take their advice and bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Li es that we could cook there or walk to the cayuma buckhorn and eat there.

The sheepherder was so cute, clean, and cozy. The heated mattress was very comfortable and kept me warm in the winter nights. Blue sky center is beautiful, with amazing views of the stretches of mountains. The long tables, center campfire, and cantina make it a perfect group gathering spot as well

Super cool spot away from it all

Very cool glamping spot. Nice facilities. Fun people. Loved the sheepherder in particular, a bit away from rest of the spots and close to the outdoor shower and bathrooms. Fun loft bed, plenty of space for stuff.

Only cons, hot in the dead of summer and coyototes howling and dogs barking at night, but otherwise perfect.
