We felt right at home on this beautiful land. The bathroom and kitchen areas are extremely clean, well cared for, and thoughtfully assembled. We could have stayed much longer but loved our one night here. Thank you Diana!
The highlight of our trip!
Oh man, this place is incredible! I don’t even know where to begin! Stardance was meant to be a quick stop on the way to a trip in Colorado but turned into the highlight of our vacation! We were so mesmerized by the land and stars that we ended up booking another night there to end our trip. The stars were so incredible, the most amazing view of the night sky I’ve ever had. We quickly realized how this property got its name as we danced around in circles, necks craned to the sky, trying to take in as much of the night sky as we could. I could spend my life exploring the land and never grow tired or bored. The amount of amenities was insane! They’ve truly thought of everything- a fully stocked kitchen with clean drinking water/pots/pans/etc., a yoga yurt to escape the elements (if needed), showers, even a jacuzzi! I hope to come back to Stardance many more times throughout my life. Absolutely mesmerizing property.
This unbelievably gorgeous spot has been lovingly cared for and maintained. It’s an incredible setting to be with the earth and reflect. And the full kitchen, clean bathrooms, and hot tub add a little luxury! We loved the hike into the canyon and sitting in the hot tub under a blanket of stars. I can’t recommend this peaceful destination that Diana has created enough.
Amazing experience at Star Dance! The land was incredible and very calming. The bathrooms and shower were neat and tidy and the kitchen was very handy. We hope to be back someday !
Whoa. What a place. Star Dance exceeded my expectations. The hospitality was above and beyond, and the views were incredible. It’s always a treat to sleep outside, but even better when there’s a bathroom with hot water, and a well equipped kitchen. I would’ve stayed forever in that hot yup if I could!
Fantastic views from the rim, great star gazing and we loved the outdoor shower. Michael and the dogs are awesome. Chatting with Michael made this a very special stay! Look forward to our next visit.
Ranch in the shadow of pedernal
We were thrilled with our stay at Star Dance and will look forward to a return visit, for sure. The property is in the shadow of Cerro Pedernal, iconic mountain mesa depicted in Georgia O’Keefe paintings and in the movies. Big skies, remote open spaces, mountains views, canyons hikes. It was more than we imagined, and there were also extra surpise amenities. Great host. Loved it there.
