Nestled in the Lost River Valley at the base of Mt. McCaleb, in the heart of ranch land and wilderness, our queen bed trailer sleeps up to 4 people. No small children at this time please due to safety issues. Age 10 and up is OK...And this is the time for Large Organic Veggie salads from my garden $10 a plate.. so just ask! Due to the nature of the trailer no check in after 9pm.
What makes our space unique is the giant sky and green valley located between austere mountains and sage brush fields. Our home site views right down the valley to the sunset that is always a great show.
We are offering an introductory rate this summer of $65 per night. No small children. Age 8 and up are OK.
We can comfortably sleep 2 in the travel trailer on a queen size bed at this time. We have a dining table that folds down and a sofa that opens that are suitable for children or small adults with a total of up to 4 people for the trailer. We cannot accept children under 10 at this time because the main house is still under construction, although almost finished. In the future we will welcome children but not right now. Dogs must be kenneled and or clean when entering the RV.
Please note that Mackay is at 6,000 foot elevation. Summer evenings and nights can be chilly, sometimes going down to 45 degrees so be prepared with warm clothing. There is no air-conditioning available.
You can walk anywhere on our 8 acres. We have room for trailers you might be towing. There are two entrances to the property which makes for an easy pull though. The road is hard packed dirt and the driveway is gravel. You will have no difficulty no matter what type of vehicle you drive.
We enjoy interacting with guests but realize that some guests like to have privacy.
The travel trailer offers a complete kitchen with a fridge, oven, gas cook top, sink and all the things you need to cook. We stock the kitchen with everything you need to made a traditional breakfast for yourself. It has a full bath but the shower room in the house is also available for use.
As typical for trailers, the water heater is small, at 6 gallons, so showers are short, so please space your showers accordingly, but remember, a shower is available in the house so please ask if you need it The trailer features large windows in the back with two rocking chairs where you can watch dramatic skycaps, the cattle when they come by, deer, antelope and on special occasion, giant jack rabbits, maybe even a wolf or two, all within a mile of town.
No children under 8.. but will they be accepted in the future. If children are coming with you we require that you sign a safety waiver. We have two ponds and a irrigation canal on the property that are not fenced and typical to agricultural properties. You must assume all responsibility for the safety of your children around the water, fences and animals. The studio apartment is also located on the second level. No climbing on guard rails on the deck is permitted. Parents assume all liability. If the loft is rented a liability waiver must be signed for this also as it requires climbing a ladder to access. This waiver is required for guests under 18.
General House Rules
Please arrive before 9pm as the trailer requires special instructions and I need to prepare breakfast supplies for you.
To be orderly and quite at night after 10pm.
No smoking in the house, studio apartment or RV trailer. On the deck is fine.
Pets are Ok. Please make sure they are relatively clean when they go inside. Dogs should be on a leash as there is some risk to them if they chase cattle. Be sure you know how to contain your dog. Ranchers have a problem with this and your dog may not be safe if found disturbing cattle.
A brief but detailed manual is placed in the trailer for you to read any time on the various aspects of trailer living.
I am a retired nurse and my husband is a retired architect. John is building our country home here in Mackay. We love to travel and do so in the winter to either Mexico or Southern Arizona, visiting national and state parks, cities, art galleries and just plan boon docking where we can. We have a 26 foot Wilderness trailer that we travel with but offer it as bed and breakfast in the summer here in Mackay. along with a studio apartment with a fantastic view. We know what its like to travel and love to meet people who enjoy traveling also, sharing experiences and places to go. We have traveled as far as Costa Rica and Belize and even drove to Guatemala with two small children with a cab over camper.
We have several organic gardens and I am the president of the local farmer's market where I sell some of our produce. We also love to paint. John does acrylic landscapes and I do pastels. Soon we will open a studio B&B suite on the second floor offering spectacular views of the mountains to complete our bed and breakfast retreat. We will also have a small gallery that features local artists.
Our dream is to create a hobby farm and are planning for chickens, a couple head of cattle and maybe a pigs. Although we are still in the early stages we have made a small pasture that irrigates from two ponds that make a nice scenic feature on our property which is nestled between mountains and looks down a dramatic valley with spectacular sunsets.
I do massage with many years of experience and am very interested in holistic health and organics. You can arrange to have a massage if you would like one. Massage is $30 per hour.
