The Ortiz Mountains and enchanting Cerrillos Hills surround us. Our stars shine brighter than most, and coyote songs will remind you that you're dwelling amongst the high desert wildlife. The 1 3/4 mile road to Little Dancing Horse Ranch is not for everyone. I will reiterate this a couple times in this listing to make sure people understand that we live on a rocky, dirt road. Some folks find it not to be a big deal while others do. Most vehicles most of the time can make it fine if it's taken slowly although high clearance vehicles are ideal. During the rare big rain or snow 4 wheel drive may be needed. It's advisable to check the weather in advance.

Everything was just as pictured. We had a wonderful and cozy stay despite the cold temperatures. Highly recommend Flo, but do be prepared, as mentioned, for the road to get to her.

Secluded and serene studio
Great studio with wonderful views and very accommodating hosts. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this secluded and peaceful environment. After two weeks of camping in the woods a hot shower, comfortable bed and access to electricity was more than welcomed.

Just what I was looking for!
Amazing views!! Road to the place is very rocky and has some steep climbs. I drove my Subaru outback and was fine. Anne Marie was great and everyone else that I bumped into which wasn’t often. Easy to keep to yourself if you want! Great if you’re looking for something a little bit off grid but still with the comfort of a shower and bed.

Flo the high desert bus is a gem. Super well appointed and well loved for a converted school bus, beautiful location with stunning views, very peaceful and lovely. Plus a comfy bed. This is my second time coming out to Flo for a little solo retreat to escape parenting. I will be back for sure. The road out here is laughably terrible, for sure, but I was fine in my Toyota Tacoma truck. I don’t think I would do this road in any kind of lower clearance city vehicle. Nevertheless, I highly recommend.

Fun at Flo!
We had a wonderful time enjoying Flo, the gorgeous surroundings/property, and the nearby towns of Madrid and Cerillos. If you like a step up from camping and a little adventure, this is the ticket! Super memorable and fun trip!

What a delightful place to stay! We loved the comfortable layout and lovely textiles. The small kitchen had everything we needed. Being close to Sante Fe but on the outskirts worked well. Loved the stars and sunsets♡Wow

A desert oasis
It is so accommodating and beautiful! The amenities were delightful, the bed was cozy, and the both stoves made sleeping there for the evening perfect! I would, without a doubt, stay there again!

Love this place! Everything is so well thought-out. Has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made the drive a few years ago in a sedan, so it is possible, but I definitely felt better this time in my subaru.

Gorgeous and sacred little spot
I love staying here so much and will probably be back, as I am local. The location is amazing – spectacular views all around. The bus is well appointed, peaceful, and rustic. The bed was actually quite comfortable. The woodstove does an incredible job of heating the place, it actually got so warm I had to crack the windows and open the door. One improvement I would suggest is a station for washing the dishes outside since there is no sink inside the bus. But whatever, this place is lovely.

I absolutely loved my stay here! I had everything I needed and it was close enough to Santa Fe (plus an awesome drive) that I could easily do day trips and make it back in time for an evening walk in the wonderful New Mexico golden hour. Road is a little rough as described but I did fine in my CRV going slow. The property is quiet and peaceful, Anne Marie was helpful and responsive to my questions and I loved having their dogs and horses nearby. It was such a wonderful stay and I was sad to leave.

Anne-Marie and her family were so great! They welcomed us upon arrival, even as it rained! We walked into the Desert Moonshine and absolutely fell in love with the space. The rain didn’t last long and we were presented with horses outside our window and one of the most memorable pink sunsets. Truly a special place and one that sparked inspiration. My family and I will definitely be back and stay for longer to explore this beautiful place. Thanks for being such a great host!

Flo Bus was absolutely wonderful! It was secluded but peaceful, it wasn’t hard to find either if you follow the host’s instruction. The amenity inside the bus was great! It had everything I needed to make a simple meal. The fairy light inside was a really nice touch. Ross was a great host too, super friendly and helpful! I am definitely coming back for next time when I visit Santa Fe.

Great place
I loved staying here. It was very peaceful. Hosts were kind and communicative. It is a beautiful space in a beautiful location. Internet was reliable when I needed it, and it was nice to be off the grid in a dog friendly place otherwise. The road was a little rough for a toyota corolla, but I did fine taking my time and going slow.

Strawbale Solar Experience Quiet Rd
Great experience off grid, authentic straw bale and composting toilet with running water in bathroom and usable kitchenette. Owner left some healthy snacks for us and her dogs Ama and Buddy busted our dog and they were very cute together. Road to accomodations was fine for our Subaru, maybe not for a Prius. Owner has great taste in furniture and textiles.

Great place. There's other homes nearby and the studio is connected to the main house, but you feel solitude. The host was very friendly and introduced herself. Wish we could have stayed another night!

Best experience ever
This bus was the best thing yet out of our entire trip! Such a neat experi en, and had so many small touches. It was really warm at night with our fire, and we got to cook in the oven and stove top. Communication was precise and fast as well! Overall, would definitely come back if in the area!!
