The  unusual dirt  dwellings are a mystery.  A local old timer said 75 ys. ago he rode by with his dad and it was a chicken farm. The small  fresh water spring no doubt provided water for animals and travelers alike and maybe even serviced the stage coach that came from Meeker.. A visiting miner/ college grad said the rock formations are not found elsewhere.  Learn more about this land: We were told by a geologist it is a geologically unique area. Small spring comes down the mountain all year. Historic earthen foundations on rear of property , we don't know the builders. Rear of property Backs up to BLM land, but it is very steep and there are large loose rock, climbing not advised here, if you walk a little further to the east the climb is safer. Many animals including a mountain lion are present. The cleaning fee of $10.00 only applies if you bring a pet. Pet hair is hard to remove.

Wonderful hospitality. Kind hosts. Beautiful land. Comfortable stay! We loved every minute. A few favorites: the animals, homemade bread & jam, the stars at night, warm hosts.

Gorgios Mountain views!
Wow! Felt like we were staying at a B&B! Easy to find and so comfortable. We walked into the cutest RV with homemade delicious jelly, fresh baked bread and the eggs! Everything we needed was provided from well stocked kitchen, fresh sheets, and even woke up to a bowl of hand picked strawberries. Greg and his wife are an amazing couple who made us feel like family. Can't wait to get back so we can relax while enjoying the gorgios mountain views in beautiful Rifle, Co!

Super amazing hosts but definitely a little closer to there house then we assumed. A little to close for comfort. Had to cut trip short for emergency but all around was pretty Decent. Bread was amazing and so were fresh tomatoes.

We had a great stay with Greg & Hanna. The RV has been done up perfectly and is well stocked. It sits on a nice cement block, which includes chairs for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful views. They also included some wonderful homemade touches - fresh eggs, bread and jam! Would definitely stay here again - place is great and Greg was very easy to communicate with and hospitable.
