The bathroom also has a mini-fridge and electricity.
Back over by the wagon, there is also a nice picnic table and 2 chairs located outside. During the warmer month there is also a shade attached to the wagon for your lounging comfort. A fire ring is nearby, small campfires are ok as long as we don't have a fire ban in effect. We include the firewood.
Keep in mind this is an authentic piece of American West history and is not perfectly sealed from the elements, but it will absolutely keep you dry and comfortable. !
Nunn is located 30 minutes Northeast of Fort Collins, and is considered a prairie landscape, even though mountains are a short driving distance away. Living on the prairie comes with its challenges - mostly with its strong winds that we can get on occasion. Please keep this in mind.
You're welcome to walk around the ranch and view the animals, we ask that you DO NOT enter the corrals. If you happen to be here in the spring, this is when you will find new calfs! Oh so fun!!
We have some outstanding sunsets, lots of open space and plenty of fresh air. We also have fantastic mountain views to the west. Also, please keep in mind we are 4 miles on a county-maintained dirt road from the nearest paved road.
There are many things to do in this area, just to mention a few - Lory State Park, Horsetooth Reservoir, Pawnee National Grasslands - specifically the Pawnee Buttes, Also great restaurants/brewery's in Wellington as well as many choices in Old Town Fort Collins - as well as many shops and boutiques.

My stay in the sheep wagon was seriously a dream!! The wagon was decorated so cute and the bed was incredibly comfortable. I wanted a place to rest my mind but where I wasn’t to off grid. I liked the easy access of the bathroom, just a little walk from the wagon. I love the beautiful scenery and all the animals. I hope I get the chance to stay here again.
Wonderful glamping get-away
I really enjoyed my stay. Shannon was super accommodating when I needed to move my date. There were horses, chickens, very nice dogs and two adorable kittens. The views were beautiful, calm and peaceful. And the wagon that we stayed in was super cute with a comfortable bed and an entire chill vibe. Locating the place was not so straightforward. As Shannon says in her description, gps does not allows work. Signs would be helpful. Also, I was super lucky to be able to build a campfire because of the high winds. And This place had high winds and it rained the night we were there. But that was the best sleep I’ve had in years. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, Shannon! I recommend this place especially if you’re like me who lives in the Denver area. It was nice to feel like you are away but really only 1.5 hrs away. Excellent stay and I wish we had more time to visit
Being a bit oblivious I made the mistake of booking Shannon's wagon one day early! She was super duper accommodating and the wagon and amenities were perfect and made me feel very at home after a long road trip.
I was passing through and just looking for a nice, quiet and private place to spend the night. Shannon's little homestead did not disappoint! I stayed in the restored 'sheep wagon', a historical treat I had never heard about before. I can't imagine the early sheep herders slept anywhere near as comfortable as I did in that wagon; it's downright plush! The view to the east from Shannon's land offers a spectacular sunrise, whether you stay in the wagon or are camping, the night sky is fabulous, and the stillness jumps at you. Being in the high plains there's not much vegetation, so there's not much 'visual privacy' and but after my meet-and-greet with Shannon & Eric I was left all to myself. I wish I had had more time to tour the homestead and to learn more about what all they're doing there. A great stay nevertheless!
Cute pups cute wagon
Tragically the weather did not cooperate and the wind was so intense we largely had to hide in the wagon and play cards, which was a blast but was excited to have a fire. The wagon was cute as hell and stood up well to the storm. Best part is all the farm dogs running around
