A gem in the rough
The description of the property is accurate, in the same way you can describe a diamond as a mineral. Off the grid? Yes. Hot shower? Yes. It's that kind of attention to the small details that really makes this place sing. This isn't the spot for a large family reunion spent watching a flat-screen tv. However, if you want to listen to the coyotes at night or watch the stars from the most unusual bed-in-the-sagebrush or explore a fascinating area of the country this might be your spot. Ms. Hart was super attentive and flexible, even when we were 45 minutes behind schedule and arrived in the dark. She made us feel right at home. One aspect that folks may be squeamish to ask about is the composting toilet. The "out-house" is a wonder, with a ridiculously good view, no odors, no muss/fuss, super clean, and it has holiday lights (on a solar battery) for when the sun goes down. Multiple beds for multiple conditions or people's inclinations. The shack is neat, tidy, clean, and very comfortable. Propane stove for heating the shack works very quickly. But the real joy is just outside the shack's doors. There certainly will be a return visit, just need more than two nights!
