Pets & Horses - We love animals!

Certified therapy dogThere are dogs, cats, horses, ponies, goats, alpacas, chickens, ducks and rabbits living on the farm. We are an official Arabian Discovery Farm.  We welcome pets, but because we have so many furry and feathered friends living here, we have specific rules that must be followed.

  • The maximum number per guest or group is 2 dogs or cats.
  • We charge damage fees and also cleaning fees for any mess left inside or outside.
  • Pets must be leashed at all times when walking around the facility or moving from your car, room or to play areas.
  • Pets are never allowed in any of the other animals' areas.
  • If your pet is out of control or constantly barks you may be asked to leave.

Where pets are allowed:

  • If you rent the entire Elk House or the Coyote House you may bring your pets into the house and let them enjoy the whole space.
  • Pets are allowed in the Hummingbird house.
  • Pets are allowed in the Moose House and it has a fenced yard for pets. Be aware that other guests may be moving in and out of this yard to access the Art room.
  • There are two large dog play and training areas.
    • This area is available for use by all guests with pets. Clean up after your pet. Be aware of others that may be using the area. We run a companion and service dog training program, so if you see someone in a dog training activity then please do not enter.
  • An indoor kennel is also available.

There are miles of roads to walk around the property and BLM land as well as National Forest land is nearby.

Horse Boarding

There are 2 stalls available in our barn where your horses can stay overnight. Guests who are boarding horses can also use the arena if there is no horse activity in progress. ($100 per stall per night.)


Alcohol and Smoking

As a retreat center this is not a place to come to for a drinking party. Overly loud guests will be asked to leave. We do allow alcohol inside the Moose House, Hummingbird House and in the Elk House and its patio if you have rented the whole house, or inside the Coyote house if you have rented the whole house.

Cigarette smoking is only allowed on the patio of the Elk House or Coyote House if you have rented the whole house. Otherwise, please take a walk away from the facility and enjoy the mountain views. Vaping is allowed outdoors only.

Smoking cannabis is not allowed anywhere in the facility.

Our goal is to ensure that guests who are on retreat are not exposed to influences which would disturb them, be respectful and responsible.


All reservations are taken over the phone, so please call: (303) 859-7385
