Formerly known as the North Fork Tipi Haven, this 22 acres was once owned by International sculptor Lincoln Fox, and built by Mr. Wooten in the early 1900's as an apple orchard, Old Moon Acres is now home to Old Moon Acres Tipi Haven. The North Fork Valley of the Gunnison River, encompassing Crawford, Hotchkiss and Paonia, was an important fruit orchard area in the late 1800's and well into the early 1900's. The valley's climate is a banana belt, perfect for fruit with the cold air coming down from the mountains at night and the heat from the mesas warming up the valley during the day. Coal mines up the road in Bowie and Somerset paid better, so many of the orchards languished over the years. Since the closing of all the mines but one, today the NFV is home to the largest concentration of organic farms in the state of Colorado as well as becoming a state Creative District serving the multitudes of artist and creatives that call the valley home. There are many pick-your-own peaches, cherries, apples, pears, nectarines and if we are lucky, apricots, in the valley. Delicious Orchards, 1 mile down Hwy 133, is an excellent place to pick your own, drink local hard cider and listen to live music on the weekend over a wonderful brunch. It is all about the farms, cattle, art, music, outdoor adventure, fun and relaxation here in the North Fork Valley. The tipis are custom made by the Colorado Yurt Company in Montrose, Colorado where they have been making yurts, tents and tipis since 1976. The tipis are expertly designed and made with custom paintings invoking the animal spirits that inhabit our land. These are a Sioux design tipi as the Ute's mainly lived in wiki-ups until they were introduced to the tipi in the 1800's. The Ute's appropriated the tipi design from the Sioux or Plains Natives. We have solar showers (solar bags of water heated by the sun during the day) available for free. Showers are also available at the local laundromat in Hotchkiss. Our goal is to awaken your sense of wonder by sleeping out in nature and waking up to the Colorado blue sky in clean, clear air at 5500 ft. You can visit the many high altitude wineries, fruit orchards, organic farms, farm-to-table restaurants, great music, interesting movies at the community owned Paradise Theater, art at the Creamery Arts Center in Hotchkiss, stand-up paddle boarding, WSSUP, at Crawford reservoir, mountain biking in Grand Mesa, hiking in the West Elks, rafting down the Gunnison river in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, fishing up canyon in the coolness of the forest or relaxing in one of many hot springs within an hour of us. Colorado Detours is highly recommended by us to take you and yours on a hiking, farm, wine, or geology tour of the area. Aspen, Crested Butte (over Kebler Pass), Glenwood Springs, Gunnison, Ouray, Grand Junction, Ridgeway and Telluride all are about an hour or two away by car. Welcome to Colorado.

Fab spot near Paonia!
This spot made for a great stay. Everything is well set up and the meadow is beautiful at all times of day and night. The road is nearby but I didn’t feel it was obtrusive. Clearly the spot is well cared for and I was grateful for my night in the tipi!

Old Moon Yurt
5-star yurt experience
We had a great stay in the yurt, which was spotless and had comfortable beds. We cooked on the fire pit, but Stacy has a gas grill and cooking implements if you need them. Would definitely stay again!

So amazing!
This place is amazing! Not only are the tipi’s spacious and comfortable, but there is tons of open space, mountain views, calming creek, clean bathrooms, nearby parking and an amazing outdoor cooking area with seating. Stacy was a really great communicator and so friendly! I definitely plan to return with a larger group!

SUN tipi
Our stay was absolute perfection. The landscape was breathtaking! We did purchase a mosquito net on Amazon because I’m a freak about bugs but there weren’t many and no mosquitos at all! Stacy welcomed us during check in and was easy to communicate with throughout our stay. I would definitely recommend and will return. Paonia is a sweet little artsy town just minutes away,,, very inclusive and welcoming. Thank you Stacy!
