The Little Goat Outpost

· La Madera, Rio Arriba, New Mexico
1 acre hosted by Tanya S.
Welcome to The Little Goat Outpost! We are a rural homestead with two miniature goats located in the tiny village of Tres Piedras, New Mexico. Formerly “The Little Goat House,” our operations began in Spokane, WA, back in 2018. We started as a 420-friendly boutique bungalow rental, providing access to urban goats and hiking! When the COVID-19 pandemic became a national health emergency, we were fortunate to experience the chaos as a timely redirection for our operations. We decided to follow our instincts back to the high desert in Taos County, New Mexico — downsizing from our 1,500 sq. ft. 1905 home to our current 660 sq. ft. cabin built in 2003. Our unique urban homestead in Spokane was purchased by a young couple who now keep falcons on the premises. Meanwhile myself, the goat boys, and the Petunia kitty embarked on an epic ~1,500 mile road trip to our new home! (We've since added a Petunia doppleganger to the mix, as well as a Rhodesian/Hound rescue dog!). Located on the outskirts of Taos County with a population of under 400, the village of Tres Piedras (“Three Rocks” in Spanish) offers a much-desired reprieve from the ubiquitous capitalism, globalism, and technology that permeates our urban centers. Sitting on 2 acres in the foothills of the Tusas mountains, and a few steps from the Carson National Forest, "The Little Goat Outpost" is a veritable sanctuary.

Tanya's place was is in a beautiful high desert setting. The rabbit brush was blooming and the sage smelled so good after it sprinkled. We brought a small pull-behind camper and we didn't have any trouble driving the short distance down the dirt road. We could see mountains in the distance from the campsite. We drove to a nice beachy area on the Rio Grande within about 30 minutes. We ejoyed having a campfire and meeting her dogs and goats.

say hi to Jon and David 🐐
I would highly recommend Tanya’s spot. We had the most relaxing time, we chose Tanya's campsite for the start of our honeymoon, and we’re beyond excited at how beautiful and peaceful it was! We sat and read in the tree hammocks, made an amazing breakfast and could hear the coyotes sing into the night. It felt very secluded yet safe as we we’re close enough to folks. We loved the goats!!! Big plus 🐐❤️ taos was a short drive and you’re in a great spot to explore. We fell in love with the place and we will be back. Ty 🙏💎 Eric n Niko

Nice relaxing spot
Tanya has a sweet spot here. Her dog and goats were friendly and entertaining. There is some traffic noise from nearby highway, but not much traffic at night.

First Hipcamp experience = amazing
My fiancé and I stayed at The Little Goat Outpost for two nights and really enjoyed It! Tanya is super nice and awesome. It’s a great location to Taos and Red River. Our dog loved and had lots of play time with Tanya’s sweet dog, Daisy. Tanya has an awesome setup and I wish we would’ve done some of the activities she offered that were optional!

Restore Yourself!
Quiet & peaceful! Hostess greeted us in the driveway & was friendly. The site offered privacy. There was a great spot for a fire. Great view of the NM skies. Shaded areas. Friendly dog came to say good morning. Downsides: WiFi & Cell signals weak. But you’re camping! Slight highway noise; didn’t bother us. Note: Red Chili Line has amazing homemade pie!

Wonderful place to relax and also set out from to explore the surrounding National Forests. We enjoyed talking with the hosts and our kids loved playing with the goats and dogs which were so friendly. Sleeping out under the Milky Way was breathtaking and refreshing!
