This ultimate, off-the-grid cabin rental is located in the backcountry of Navajo County, Arizona, in the Painted Desert. It can accommodate two guests, with a pillowtop, queen-sized bed that ensures a comfortable night's sleep. There are always clean sheets inside, but guests may need to make their beds when they arrive. Towels are always stocked on the shelf inside, as well.
There is an 800-gallon tank of water that provides water for washing dishes and for showering. The shower water is pre-heated with the passive, solar water heating system. Guests should turn the hot water fully on and then add as much cold water as needed. However, this water is not potable, and guests must bring their own drinking water.
There is an antique gas stove that runs on propane for guests cooking needs. Guests must turn off the propane cylinder when they are done cooking. The stove will leak a little propane when not in use, but it will not cause a safety hazard for guests. There is also a tripod for cooking food over the campfire outside if guests prefer that.
Guests can enjoy the comfort of this rental inside or step outside and enjoy the beauty of the Arizona countryside at all times of the day.
This backcountry glamping accommodation has environmentally-conscious amenities. In the winter, there is a pellet stove to keep glampers warm. It is run off of a battery, so guests need to be conscious of saving the battery for their entire stay. There is also a wind-powered generator to help the stove continue running during cloudy and stormy days. The floor is heated with a passive, solar hot water system, which ensures the rental remains at a temperature typically 50 degrees or above, even without the pellet stove. Guests need to also be conscious of the solar-powered lights, as there is only a limited amount of energy. The small washing machine can be used during the bright day light.

While driving on the dirt road to reach the rental is an option, there are times during the monsoon season when the road becomes impassable. Guests may choose to hike to the cabin if they do not have an off-road 4-wheel drive capable vehicle. Guests must bring their own food as well as drinking water, one gallon per person is recommended. Guests should bring a sleeping bag or linens for the queen size bed.
The host typically leaves a few canned goods and other food for guests to enjoy. Guests also typically leave something for the next guest to use. If a guest uses something from someone else, it is customary to also leave something behind.
This is a remote, back-country, cabin. Guests should plan to bring everything they will need including sleeping bags or linens for the queen-size bed, fire wood, and drinking water. Please clean up after your stay and leave the cabin ready for the next visitor.
Be kind to the environment and take care of the surroundings.
