Please keep the fire small & put it out if you leave the area. There is a septic pipe. You may need some extra hose to connect to it. Interaction with GuestsI will not be there for your stay .

Overall, it is peaceful & quiet here. Getting AroundYou need a vehicle in this area. Other Things to NoteThere is a trash can on the far side of the house.

    The SpaceThis space can accommodate up to 5 people. There is a queen bed in the bedroom. The living room has a futon couch that lays out into a full bed with a twin loft bed above it. I built this custom rock house myself using local rocks that I collected in the area. Please write down the directions in advance. A guest using GPS could not find the house. Pets may be allowed, but there is an additional fee of $20. There have been problems several times with animal hair on the couch & bedding that is difficult & time-consuming to remove. Please let me know in advance if you are bringing a pet so I can cover the couch & put out different bedding. Please note that my listing states that the home is handicapped accessible. I need to clarify that the inside of the home has adequate space for a wheelchair to get around, but the toilet does not have any grab bars so this may be something you need to bring if this applies to you. Also, the driveway is dirt & there is a small step up to enter the house so a handicapped person would probably need assistance to get into the house. I plan to add a ramp to the front door, but am not sure at this time exactly when that will be installed. Guest AccessThe fireplace adds ambience to my rustic home. Please follow the instructions & do not leave the fire unattended. There is a full kitchen with cookware & a coffeemaker. Coffee, basic spices, & condiments are available for your use. A water filter pitcher is in the fridge. Additional filtered water can be obtained at the well across the street for $.25. Basic toiletries & towels are also included. High speed internet & satellite TV are available. Some books & magazines are also there for your use. There are also some games available on the shelf in the bathroom as well. There is a back porch with a table & chairs for getting some fresh air or if you are a smoker. There is also a firepit in the backyard with firewood included. The only rule is that you keep the fire small enough that no one calls the fire department and the fire needs to be extinguished before you leave the area. Non-potable water is available for this purpose in trash cans at the back corner of the house & any jugs under the shelf next to the stove in the kitchen. Interaction with GuestsI will not be present during your stay although I may need to pick up the trash & haul water if you are staying more than a week. A representative or myself will be available if you have any questions. I also am offering an optional tour of the nearby Native-American petroglyphs only known to locals. The fee for this is $20. per group (up to 3 people.) However, if your stay is a week or longer, the tour will be included for only $10. Please request this in advance so I can make sure someone is available. Special tours of other unique local attractions such as old mines or ghost towns will be available with reservations 2 weeks in advance. The NeighborhoodThis neighborhood is usually pretty quiet. The town of Dolan Springs is around 5 miles away where you will find stores, restaurants, a bar, & a post office. There are a couple of hiking trails between here & the town. Watch for the hiker signs. Getting AroundThere is not any public transit in the area. If you are travelling in this area, you should have a vehicle to get around. Other Things to NoteOccasionally, guests with pets visit. This does not happen very often, but if you are allergic to animals, you may want to have allergy medicine on hand.

The NeighborhoodDolan Springs is a rural and curious, sleepy, quiet Western desert town in Mohave County, Arizona. Tourists not familiar with this part of the world will really feel like they steped into the Wild West. The main road through Dolan Springs, Pierce Ferry Road, provides exclusive access to the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk and South Cove boat launch – a beach area of Lake Mead, America's largest man-made lake, popular for fishing and other recreational watersports activities. Dolan also sits amidst the worlds largest Joshua Tree Forest; though you will need to travel about 2 miles up the hill from the property to fully appreciate this. Dolan Springs has two grocery stores, a gas station, a bar (currently closed) and two cafes as well as an American Legion and VFW Outpost. There are a few trail systems for hikers just outside of the town. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation in or to Dolan Springs.

Dolan is a very small town with limited facilities so it is worth picking up supplies before you arrive. The house has a feeling of being in the 'middle of nowhere' despite having neighbours and is in a very rural setting.

          The SpaceThis historic adobe inn is constructed with sand and mud from the local dry stream beds and the walls are 12 inch solid block. In the late 1800's this inn was initially built for the passengers on the Butterfield Stage Line to rest their weary bodies after the grueling journey through the desert. As the stage coaches gave way to the railroad, the rooms were converted to lodging for the miners and their families. When horseless carriages overtook the railroads for travel, the adobe building was extended to become an early motor court on the main highway through Chloride, which today is 2nd street. Over the following decades, the Miners Inn underwent many changes, and uses. In 2002, it was taken back to the original use, a modern day motel. We kept the feel of it's original rustic simple decor, and each room is different. The rooms are comfortable, they have private baths, plenty of fresh air and the rates are quite affordable. We accept overnight guests and are happy to provide longer term stays. Chloride is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of any large city. If getting off the "grid" is what you are looking for, we have it. There are no telephones or tv's in the rooms. We offer wifi, but because we are so far out from the closest large town, it is sometimes a bit weak. An important thing to remember if you are a cell phone user. Only Verizon provides good reception and most other cell services will not work in Chloride. Sometimes, you may be able to send and receive texts. There are land lines available in town for your use if necessary. Rates start at $50 per night, with discounts for groups. Please call (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) for reservations. Guest AccessGuests have access not only to the Inn, but to "Yesterdays" restaurant. The restaurant is open at 8 am from Friday thru Tuesday. Closing time is usually around 7-8 pm. If you are arriving after that time, you will not find any fast food or markets open. If you are coming south from Las Vegas, the last stop for food on Hwy. 93 is Rosies Den Cafe (about 25 miles north of Chloride). Coming north from Kingman the last stop is Castle Rock Bar and Grill (about 15 miles south of Chloride). Chloride is a friendly town with artists, antique shops, quirky yard art and is full of charm. Music videos and many movies have been filmed in our "ghost town". Writers and authors enjoy the peace and solitude afforded them by this little village. Interaction with GuestsHosts always on site. The NeighborhoodHistoric old mining town. Getting AroundOur Inn has free on site parking. You can walk around town. We don't have any signals, only a few stop signs. Oh, by the way, we are in "open range" territory so you may see a few of our neighbors cattle roaming around town too. Other Things to NoteFull serve restaurant with full bar on property.

          The SpaceThe home is nestled amongst a magical desert landscape; not least as it is within the largest Joshua forest there is. Its slightly higher altitude means a more engaging and interesting flora and fauna. Experience the warm desert nights by the campfire, under the clear skies enjoying vistas of the Milky Way. In the morning enjoy the fresh air and beautiful views while the desert quail and other birdlife make busy providing a surprisingly full morning chorus. It is important to note that the house is in a remote and very rural setting. The location may not be to everyones taste but equally its uniqueness will really appeal to others. Access can be a little tricky for smaller vehicles at certain times (see 'Directions' for more info). The house itself is a cozy, well presented, clean and newly refurbished block built two bedroom home sitting on a 2 acre lot. It comprises a spacious and well equipped kitchen, an open plan living room and dining area, one bathroom (bath and shower) and two bedrooms. The living room has a sofa bed with the main sleeping arrangement being two comfortable queen beds in the two bedrooms. The house has WiFi Internet and a 40” Smart TV (with complimentary Netflix). Guest AccessAccess is to the whole property including the house and yard, with the exception of the Garage. Please note there is no fence around the lot and so extra care and diligence is required for children and pets who should not be left unacompanied outside. The BBQ is currently out of order but a fire pit is available for (sensible) use; please request the fire wood before your arrival. Interaction with GuestsThe house is setup so that you do not need to interact with us at all - access is via a key box and so you may check in any time you like at your convenience. I will be available in town, if I am away I have a solid network of good folk (and co-hosts) who will be available to help. The NeighborhoodDolan Springs is a rural, sleepy and eclectic desert town in Mohave County, Arizona. The town of Dolan Springs is not a destination in itself, though provides for the basics with two grocery stores (inc. a Family Dollar), a gas station, post office, a cafe, a few other small commercial endeavours as well as an American Legion and VFW Outpost. There is a small trail for hikers just outside of the town. The main road through Dolan Springs, Pierce Ferry Road, provides exclusive access to the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk and South Cove boat launch – a beach area of Lake Mead, America's largest man-made lake, popular for fishing and other recreational watersports activities. Dolan also sits amidst the worlds largest Joshua Tree Forest. The location of this house is a few miles out of town in the direction of the Grand Canyon Skywalk. The house is amongst a small collection of private residences which are surrounded by BLM desert lands; remote and secluded. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation in or to Dolan Springs. Access is easy with a vehicle; driving times are from Las Vegas (1h 20m), Grand Canyon West and Skywalk (50min), Kingman (35min), Laughlin (1hr), Bullhead City (1hr 5m) and Lake Havasu (1hr 30m). Other Things to NotePLEASE NOTE that access to the property is down an unpaved and sometimes rough road. In all but a few rare cases, vehicle access is no issue. The county regularly maintains the road and so it is always kept in a usable state. Occasionally, especially during the monsoon season (Late July through August) the roads can get washed out in flash floods, making access quite tricky in small vehicles with low clearance. Any wash damage is usually repaired the same or the next day by the county. Having made that caveat, our front wheel drive Honda civic gets in and out just fine on a daily basis. At a personal level, it is important to be aware the desert is a hard and unforgiving place; it is easy to become complacent given the comfort and serenity of the home and location.

Keep an eye out for dangerous wild life (snakes, spiders and scorpions and painful cactus spines). Children and pets should be supervised while outside.
