The SpaceThis property is very private and is located 1/2 mile past a locked gate (4WD A MUST for driveway) with almost no other houses visible. Notched in the side of the mountain at 5,500' elevation and overlooking Whitetail Creek, the house is about 45 minutes NW of the tiny hamlet of Portal, AZ a recognized birdwatcher's paradise. The cabin is simple but functional. When you come to this part of the world, you are here for everything that is located outside of your door! Read "other things to note" below for a detailed description of all that you can experience in the hills surrounding the cabin. The fact that there is electricity, telephone and internet is a marvel in such a remote place as this. That said, it only takes about 45 minutes once you exit 1-10 to reach the house. But this property is about experiencing nature rather than luxurious appointments. Guest AccessThere is another building on the property that only I use, but I live full time in Lafayette Colorado. Guests have access to the cabin only, but can go anywhere on the property they like. Interaction with GuestsLittle to none. The NeighborhoodThere are not many human neighbors in this area, but there are plenty of animals and birds to see. The human neighbors you do find here are all very friendly and helpful. NOTE: The Chiricahua mountains burned in the Horsehoe 2 wildfire that swept the area in June 2011. Since the fire there has been massive plant growth and a return of most all of the bird and animal species that were before, including some new ones. All pictures on my listing are post-fire. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation at all. You also NEED 4WD to access the house. The road is not particularly steep, but is very rough and narrow in spots. I get a lot of people asking if they can get by with 2WD. While it might be possible with certain high-clearance 2WD SUV-type vehicles to navigate the 1/2 mile driveway, they are not recommended. Plus, having a 4WD vehicle will allow you to access other popular spots in the area that you would otherwise have to miss out on. Other Things to NoteThis property is a Nature Lover's dream come true! Considered to be one of the most spectacular examples of the Sky Islands (see Wikipedia definition), the Chiricahua Mountains are home to one of the most biologically diverse places in North America. 9 life zones span the rise from the desert plains at base of the mountains to towering Chiricahua Peak (9,760' elevation) approximately 6,000 vertical feet of rise above the valley floor. These mountains are home to over 375 species of birds and other notable animal species including; coatimundi, black bear, mountain lion, coues deer, turkey, 13 types of hummingbirds and even jaguars have been spotted near here! Elf owls nest in the trees near the cabin in April and May and the rare Elegant Trogon has been spotted before in Whitetail Canyon just below the house. Nectar feeding bats empty hummingbird feeders at night and nighttime sky viewing is superlative as there is virtually no ambient light from any town to dim the stars. Nearby in Portal, the Southwest Research Station is operated by the American Museum of Natural History and provides scientists and researchers from around the world the chance to operate in one of the most biologically rich environments in the U.S. There are more species of mammals, birds, reptiles, bees and ants found here than any other place in the country! And the Chiricahua National Monument, AKA the Land of Standing Rocks, is just 4 miles west of the house up Whitetail Canyon. The cabin is notched into the mountains with almost no other neighbors anywhere. The bucolic Colibri Vineyard is located just below the property and has the perfect microclimate for growing certain wine grapes. The house is remote and therefore simple. Staying here is about the place not the amenities. That said, you should find everything you need to keep you comfortable during your stay!

Open Wednesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner, the Tavern is a must-see. Completely renovated and regionally decorated by owners Rob and Debbie Bernard, don't miss the historic mural in the back room that was lustily painted, years ago, by a patron who couldn't pay his bar tab, and thankfully saved, during renovations, for posterity.

Need a quiet place to pen your latest missive? Look no further, 1/2 mile 4WD driveway will put you in an unbelievably remote, yet accessible, property where privacy and nature rule! One of the last truly wild places left in the lower 48, the Chiricahua Mtns. are part of Arizona's biologically diverse “Sky Islands” where you can find 375 bird species, coatimundi, mountain lion, bear, deer, turkey, even jaguar to keep you company! This property is a Nature Lover's dream come true! Considered to be one of the most spectacular examples of the Sky Islands (see Wikipedia definition), the Chiricahua Mountains are home to one of the most biologically diverse places in North America. 9 life zones span the rise from the desert plains at base of the mountains to towering Chiricahua Peak (9,760' elevation) approximately 6,000 vertical feet of rise above the valley floor. These mountains are home to over 375 species of birds and other notable animal species including; coatimundi, black bear, mountain lion, coues deer, turkey, 13 types of hummingbirds and even jaguars have been spotted near here! Elf owls nest in the trees near the cabin in April and May and the rare Elegant Trogon has been spotted before in Whitetail Canyon just below the house. Nectar feeding bats empty hummingbird feeders at night and nighttime sky viewing is superlative as there is virtually no ambient light from any town to dim the stars. Nearby in Portal, the Southwest Research Station is operated by the American Museum of Natural History and provides scientists and researchers from around the world the chance to operate in one of the most biologically rich environments in the U.S. There are more species of mammals, birds, reptiles, bees and ants found here than any other place in the country! And the Chiricahua National Monument, AKA the Land of Standing Rocks, is just 4 miles west of the house up Whitetail Canyon. The cabin is notched into the mountains with almost no other neighbors anywhere. The bucolic Colibri Vineyard is located just below the property and has the perfect microclimate for growing certain wine grapes. The house is remote and therefore simple. Staying here is about the place not the amenities. That said, you should find everything you need to keep you comfortable during your stay!But this property is about experiencing nature rather than luxurious appointments.
