We have a small 1970's trailer available for people to enjoy! There is no plumbing or heat but it's super cute and cozy! As for cooking and amenities. There's a propane stove in the camper. To use the stove top, you simply ignite it with a lighter that's available. We have coffee, filters, a tea pot and French press for you to use & coffee and tea available! We also have a cast iron pan, spatula, knife and cutting board. Olive oil and balsamic oil are here too! Cooking up gourmet meals while camping...doesn't that sound lovely! The fridge isn't super cold but feel free to store cooler items in it overnight. There is a 5 gallon jug of water for you to use (freshly filled for your arrival) and you can drain down the sink, no problem. We are proud to say we just built up a beautiful little privacy fence to give you even more space to yourself. Hung up a hammock next to the trailer and now have a picnic table with a sunshade behind the trailer for you to enjoy a meal or two outside in the fresh air & there are even lights to enjoy a dinner under the stars! We are working on getting an outdoor bathroom/shower set up, we just haven't had the time yet. In the meantime, we just installed a new RV toilet for your convenience. There are a few fun games to play, a TV with Harry Potter on repeat and a coloring book with crayons. We will be sure to leave a note letting you know if fires outside are ok or not. A fire under a star lit sky is our type of night! There are two rambunctious husky puppies that will surely come by and say hi. We hope that's ok! They're friendly and just want to meet you :) We have a couple neighbors who occasionally make an appearance. There is an older couple who lives down the road and takes their 2 dogs, Becky and Poe, for a walk around 5pm every night. Please note, one of the dogs is not friendly but is always on a leash. I would suggest keeping your dogs close when they are out for their walk, which usually only lasts about 45 minutes. There is also a pack of Belgian Shepards that live down the road...they rarely come around the house and please feel free to tell them to go home if you see them. They are more scared of you than you them. We live about 3 miles down a dirt road into the woods. You'll have a lot of privacy, plenty of room to walk/hike/run around and enjoy the scenery. Our house is close by but we promise we won't bug you!

We loved camping out in this adorable trailer outside of Taos. The funky vintage interior and all the little details that Jessica has included made it super cozy. We loved the fire pit, the comfy bed and the games and coloring book. It was such a sweet spot to call home for the night. Jessica's two pups are also really friendly and adorable. There is biking and hiking nearby and lots of fun stuff to do in Taos. Don't miss the Earthship community on the way out of town!

Jessica's pups came by and said hi in the morning. Dog party!Cozy bed for an extra long snuggle session.Jessica had left the fire ring all ready to go for our arrival. Wish we would have brought the marshmallows!The trailer has its own private entrance to the property

What a lovely little trailer in the woods. We had a fantastic time at Mabel Dodge and would stay again any day. Thanks so much for the Taos hospitality Jessica!

We were going to camp, but weather turned bad, so looked in the area and found Jess's trailer on Hipcamp. Put in reservation request and she responded within 30min. We came late (9.30pm) but everything was ready for us. Camper is super cozy and in very good condition. Bed is very comfortable. Had a little fire and watched a movie. Made breakfast in the morning. The place is very quiet and remote. Hosts are super cool. Carson National Forest is just 5 min down the road

Awesome little camper! 15-20 minutes from both Taos Ski Valley, the town & the gorge. Jessica responds super quick and is there for any questions you might have. The place was just what we needed for our weekend exploring Taos :)

We enjoyed our stay so much! Perfect for camping without having to bring everything your own.

The camper is very chic with some awesome bedding and pillows. IT also had a tv for our 3yr old that was so desperate to watch a movie in a camper since we do not have TV at home. The string lights outside are the cutest touch. Perfect for multiple nights or a one night get away..

This was a great home away from home to go to. We had a great time at the trailer, and Taos was great. They were great host and we loved their dogs

This was the perfect little secluded spot! Everything about the trailer was kept up well, clean, and quaintly simplistic and charming! Loved the outdoor space, and my pup had plenty of room to run around and visit with the other resident pups. Owners were very helpful, accommodating, and responsive, and gave very thorough directions. Would recommend to anyone looking to get off the grid and experience something a little less traditional and a little more adventurous!
