The night sky is unparalleled and we spent hours looking up. Make sure you pack some bug spray though. There is no electricity or running water but you do get a battery to power a fan for six hours and solar lights. We didn’t need it at night though as the cabin cooled down naturally. The restrooms are very well maintained too.” – Aditya

Super remote and tranquil – the ideal place to disconnect and regenerate under the Arizona stars. 

Guest review: “This is such a great and unique location. Spending a night in AJ’s tipi was one of the coolest things we did on our Southwest road trip. We stayed in February and while it was cold outside a simple propane heater inside kept us warm, the bedding mats and pillows were comforting, and with our own sleeping bags, the whole experience was perfect. We comfortably slept a group of 4 inside. The location is a bit remote, but for us, that was a big plus. AJ provided grills and cooking utensils and we had the most awesome late night meal of our trip under the night sky. Getting up at 3 am to see the stars was amazing. Such an incredible view of the sky. Sunrise too was amazing. The proximity to the Chiricahua Monument made us curious, so we went, and that too was out of this world awesome. A must hiking destination and a landscape you just can’t believe. AJ was friendly and attentive and we can highly recommend you give his great tipi and location a try for yourself. Loved it!” – Mark
