This handsome Earthwork's tipi is situated in a private location amidst a lovely Ponderosa pine grove on the West side of the Uncompaghre river valley. Abundant birds fill the forest with their song and the tipi deck is a great perch for watching them flit through the forest. The land is just 10 minutes from Ridgway or ten minutes to Ouray (by car). The tipi sits on an elevated deck to provide a flat, dry space and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. It is comfortably appointed with a memory foam pad atop a futon bed with clean sheets and cozy blankets. There's a propane cook stove, a picnic table, a few lounge chairs and fresh drinking water. Cheery solar-powered fairy lights make it easy to see inside at night and the shady hammock spot should not be missed for those seeking a blissful afternoon nap. Guests are most welcome to use the private, indoor, 3/4 bathroom in the apothecary shop at the main house on the property. A 2 minute walk along a nature trail from the tipi gets you there. Towels and toiletries are not provided. There are over 80 varieties of medicinal plants growing on the property. Some are in formal and informal gardens, others in the greenhouse and others grow wild in the forest. A comprehensive line of botanical products are created in the Apothecary on site. Tours are available by appointment. (970) 708-0236 Activities close by include: hiking trails within minutes of the land, rock climbing in Ridgway and Ouray, a via ferrata, the box canyon waterfall and hot springs are all just ten minutes away.This handsome Earthwork's tipi is situated in a private location amidst a lovely Ponderosa pine grove on the West side of the Uncompaghre river valley.

Ponderosa Grove Tipi
Terrific Time at the Teepee
Peaceful and cozy nook in the forest with a breathtaking view. The perfect minimalist escape and close to many spectacular attractions, including historic downtown river walks, hiking trails, water falls, and hot springs. I can't wait to go back!

We loved how secluded this site was and the setup was really cute. It was a little chilly for us at this time of year and we’d would love to come back in the warmer months.

We had the most amazing stay! The tipi was the cutest and very clean. We were worried about it being too cold but it was actually very well insulated. Julie created such a cozy and comfortable space. We loved having access to a bathroom and shower (especially to charge our phones as the tipi doesn’t have electricity), Julie provided a lantern and the cutest ferry lights. We enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to come back!

5 Stars All the Way Around
Cannot emphasize enough how GORGEOUS this area/tipi is. For a small space, you wouldn’t expect it to feel so cozy and well decorated - but it was! We truly didn’t want to leave, and if there were more dates open would have instantly booked another night. Julie was kind and helpful! Loved and would totally recommend.

Beautiful spot, close to Ouray and Ridgway. The site was the perfect combination of feeling secluded but having the convenience of a restroom.

Absolutely beautiful set up, with an amazing view. It was peaceful and relatively private. It was a little tricky finding in the dark but totally worth it!!! Make sure you go left at the first fork and then up and left where the tree root is. We would absolutely go back!
