The space

This charming apartment is decorated in French style. It features a comfortable king size bed, lovely decorative stone fireplace, beautiful antique dining table and a large couch which can sleep an extra person. The private bathroom features a claw foot bathtub and separate shower. There is a small fridge to keep your food items. If you would like to cook, there is a fully stocked kitchen next door in our main house that is available to you anytime.

The French Quarters is a lovely mix of antique and modern, nestled in the mountains with surrounding lush woodlands, creeks, and nearby hiking trails. There is a beautiful view of the canyon in the daytime and an abundance of stars at night.

We have a brand new wireless router with extremely fast wireless Internet access at 85mb per sec. We also have a new, very reliable tankless hot water heater that never runs out of hot water for the bath/shower..

You will be nestled in a 13 acre mountain village with other cottages, forests and mountain views. You’d never know you were anywhere near a city!

Visiting this property is a very unique experience, some describe it as “glamorous camping”. No photoshoots, parties or cats allowed without prior arrangement. Please read the full description, disclaimer, and reviews, to make sure this is what you are looking for.

DISCLAIMER: This is not a standalone cottage. This suite is a private room with its own entrance. It's next door to an original 100 year old stone house which has a full kitchen and fireplace. It is open for any guest to enjoy. This is quite different from staying in an ordinary hotel. We are really in NATURE here - these are older cottages hand-built by artists in the forest. They are very rustic! It's like living in a mountain village, with other cottages nearby. While we work very hard to keep our places pristine and spotless - if anyone in your party will faint if they see a bug or lizard or little frog inside - then this probably isn't the place for you. Please be very careful booking cottages for someone else - like your parents just arriving from another continent - they might prefer something more conventional.

Some folks describe our places as a luxurious form of camping. We make our cottages very comfortable - they have all the basics - electricity - wifi - most have kitchens, bath or shower and comfy clean beds. But they are not like a hotel with perfect walls and a sterile atmosphere. Please look at all the pictures and read all the reviews. We can't offer refunds just because we don't meet the standards of a normal hotel. Most people are charmed by this idyllic and bohemian lifestyle - but it's not for everyone.

FILM AND PHOTOS SHOOTS: This is an amazing property for photography, and film, with 13 acres of rustic cottages, oak forests and sculpted streams. But please note we have special, and quite reasonable rates for filming, in addition to the normal rental charges. Please let us know ahead of time so we can work out the details. Commercial filming is not permitted without permission.

Such a great to be in a unique and artistic space. The no game vibe fed my soul. Gorgeoys views of the canyon made us feel sublime. Not at all a sterile hotel experience. A clean and well loved artist's haven.
