This is our mobile 1955 Avion trailer with round ceiling and a feeling that you are home the second you walk in the door. The back end has been modified so it lifts up and you can lie in bed with a view - you can feel outside while your inside. The kitchen may be small, but thousands of meals have been made with joy in this 20 foot love machine.  

The Gypsy Wagon sleeps two and lives west of the RV Barn. You have your firepit and bathroom.....you will need to bring an ice chest and ice for perishables.

There is room to pitch a tent at the site.  So you can bring two additional people to share your kitchen and bathroom.  Each additional person will be $15 per night. So sleep in a cozy bed and have your friends right beside you outside in a tent! This is glamping!

The homie is such a fun, quirky place to stay. We loved sleeping with the back wall swung open for a beautiful view of the desert, mountains, and starlit sky.

Thanks for coming out Jolene. Just loved the fact that you took night hikes in the moonlight and do exactly what I do....sleep with the back open. Hope you had safe travels home and come back again!

We had such a wonderful time staying in The Homie. We slept with the back of the trailer open to the beautiful desert. Ellyn and John were truly fantastic hosts; they made us feel completely at home and we really enjoyed getting to know their story. We will definitely be back!

Perfect desert glamping

We just got back from a 4-night stay at Ellyn's property. The Homie was lovely and perfect for winter glamping in the desert. Every night we fell asleep to the sound of howling wind, coyotes, owls and a few other animals which we couldn't identify. The trailer is equipped with gas stove, basic cookware, a couple of plates, bowls, glasses and cutleries. We also have a private fire pit right outside. The night sky in the desert was unbelievable. Ellyn is very friendly and helpful with all our queries

Celebrated my brothers 60th birthday camping at this small slice of heaven. We had such a wonderful time. Plenty of open space to roam and hike. Ellyn made us feel so at home even with our dogs off leash. I I can't wait to go back.

Overall it was a good experience. This place is truly in the middle of nowhere so if you want quiet and a place to see the stars, this location is great. The Homie trailer sleeps 2 people and we set up a tent for the other two people. It was extremely windy the first night so I recommend weighing down your tent (we placed large rocks over all our stakes after the wind blew the tent away the first time). The toilet works but you do have to pour water down it each time you use it- this wasn't an issue and they provide a jug for water for this exact purpose. Our only issue was that on the morning we were checking out, we discovered the tank that the toilet empties into was full so we weren't able to use it. The tank is large and we were only there for two nights so it seems as though it wasn't emptied prior to our arrival. Other than that, our stay was pretty good.

Response from Ellyn, the Host, on March 20th, 2021

Oh, my Liz. I am so sorry about your toilet misadventure. The tank is small. So, you must have filled it. John would have been happy to pull the lever on the outside and empty the tank into the larger tank on the ground. That is what I did when I got there to clean. We didn’t realize you had a problem. We are here to help you with any issues you have. But we can’t help if we don’t know. Based on your experience, I will modify the information that I send to each camper before arrival to ensure it doesn’t happen again!

Amazing!!! We loved our stay and Ellyn was the best. Plenty of hiking in the area with the prettiest sunsets and sunrises. Stay in the gypsy wagon, sleeping with the back door open under the stars was incredible and the bed was the most cozy I've slept on! 5 stars!

Ellyn is an amazing host, the Gypsy Wagon is exactly what we were looking for with a little weekend getaway. Also can't go wrong making giant bubbles in the desert!

Response from Ellyn, the Host, on April 6th, 2021

Thanks for the nice review. You two rocked the Gypsy Wagon. Using the back and front open for shade and breeze in the heat of the day and I will say are the first campers to put all the used linens on the floor. Thanks! I appreciated that!
