Unique experience that I would definitely do again! The Hogan was a major step above any cabin/camping I've stayed in and really elevated the Monument Valley experience! The site was set up very well, so we could literally walk in and feel right at home. Highly recommended!!

Mark is a great host. The Hogan is an amazing life experience. That was the best place I could choose to spend the time at Monument Valley. If you like experiencing places and local culture this is definitely the place to stay.

Response from Mark:
Aurelie visited for Thanksgiving, and we were shocked by her behavior. As we were attempting to describe the history of the hogan, during an attentive moment, she blankly interrupted us, and turned her back on me, and then began chattering about something different. We felt that was a sign that they were completely not interested in any experience sharing LOL. Which we allow guests to do their own thing, and we just give them their time. At no point, which is why the review is very confusing, was there any attempt by Aurelie to have any form of conversation, outside of treating us like servants. The tractor by my uncle next door, is to plane the dirt roads, and there are only a few hours a day in the winter that this can be done as its shortened daylight hours in the winter. The dogs come from anywhere and they do come to the hogan, because other guests feed them. We have three dog repellants at the hogan, to keep the dogs away by guests who do not want them there as an alternative to killing them, as we do not have any animal shelters in our community. It was Thanksgiving, and we spent time with our families and we have had several thanksgivings with guests and did not hold it against her for not being friendly. But we are shocked that she now wanted to spend time with us LOL. I think its typical behavior of people who are not used to Sovereign Individuals, and expect us to wait on them hand and foot. We are hosts, not hotel staff.

Amazing place to camp. The concept of Earth house is really cool. Very nice place to stargaze and in the morning you get a beautiful view of monument valley. Will definitely go back.

Staying in the hogan was fantastic. It was very cozy. The beds were very comfortable and my husband and I slept wonderfully with the wood stove to keep us warm. The hosts have thought of every single thing you could possibly need: lanterns, replenishing wood for the stove, water…
