OK Folks! Here is your chance to camp out in a very hip kinda way!!!!  

If remote Beauty is what you are after, Hound Dog Homestead also known as HDH, is just the place for you! HDH is 140 acres of true bliss. The views are EPIC! Sunrise and sunset will absolutely blow the mind!!! Sit atop one of the highest mesas in the region and gaze at the breathtaking views of the Zuni Mountains to the south, Tsoodzil Mountain to the east, and the iconic cliffs to the north.

The high altitude mesa, red rock formations, trees, grasses, wildflowers, and abundance of wildlife - mule deer, elk, wild horses, rabbits and birds- make Hound Dog Homestead perfect for the outdoor enthusiast.

Located just 60 miles south of the world heritage of Chaco Canyon, Hound Dog Homestead is rich in the history of the ancestral Puebloan people of the Chaco era. Pottery shards 1000 to 2000 years old are a common sight! Take an easy hike from the cabin to visit a ~1500 year old Chacoan dwelling or gain some elevation and hike to the top of the mesa to visit an ancient fire pit which was likely part of the signal fire network connecting Chaco Canyon to outlying communities.

The Bus is a mostly restored 1969 VW Westfalia.  The top pops up providing headroom and storage for your belongings.  During the Day the bus has two bench seats with a small handcrafted table in between.  At night fold down the backseat to make a nice cozy comfortable thats bigger than a twin but a tad smaller than a double.   The bus also comes equipped with a small double burner camp stove with propane, fresh drinking water, camp chairs, cooler (byo ice), fire wood for the firepit, and heavy blankets (no sheets or pillows)  Dont forget to bring pillows, sheets, sleeping bags!

There is a small wooden deck at this site to lounge and relax and Bathe!!  Thats right, bathe!!!!  There is a small one person (or two tiny person) wood fired hot tub on the deck! As you warm yourself by the fire pit, you will also be heating the water for the hot tub.   We highly recommend taking a hot bath at night and gaze at the amazing stars!   

If you can even convince yourself to leave the beauty of the property and comfort of the Bus, there are plenty of great outdoor activities near by -El Malpais, Bluewater State park (excellent fishing), Chaco Canyon and Mount Taylor (Tsoodzil) being the closest. Let us know your interest, and we're glad to give you tips!
