Visiting the Navajo Nation? Wake up to the sound of Mustangs and enjoy an eye-catching South-Western view in a Navajo Hogan located in the heart of Navajo country. 30 minutes north of Canyon de Chelly and 60 minutes south of Monument Valley. The one-room, Dirt floor Hogan sleeps two and has no running water.

The space
This is a rural setting where you can get off the beaten path on the Navajo Nation. The hogan has a traditional sand/dirt floor, an east-facing door, and is extremely peaceful, private and quiet. Since I have no running water, this means there is no bathroom. There is, however, an outhouse adjacent to the hogan. There is a queen size bed for sleeping, and a twin-size air mattress for additional sleepers if you give me advance notification. Basically, you want to come equipped for car or lean-to camping, and you will be pleasantly surprised by how much more comfortable it is than camping!

Guest access
Guests have access to the land for extended hikes and are welcome to visit the horse corral and hang out with my dogs. Please do not feed the animals, and please take basic safety precautions (when hiking: water, cell phone, allergy medicine, sun protection). There is a mini-fridge, Coleman camp stove, coffeemaker, and microwave in the hogan as well as cooking utensils, cutting boards, washing water, a bowl to wash dishes in, and an electric space heater. Intermittent wireless internet available in hogan. There is an outhouse but no bathroom. Also, in the summer there is a fan and two windows for cooling down (we're at high elevation so it cools down considerably at night, even in summer). In the winter, there is a wood stove for heat and cooking, Firewood will be provided during the winter season. Since there's no running water in either the hogan or the main house, the closest place to take a shower is 30 minutes south in the town of Chinle at the Chinle Aquatic Center ($1). Operating hours are: M & W, 6-7:30 am, 11am-1pm, and 6pm-8pm. T & Th: 6-7:30 am, 11-1, 5 pm-8 pm. Fridays: 6-7: 30 am, 11-1. Closed Saturdays and Sundays (always call ahead to verify they're open: (phone number hidden)). The Chinle Chapter house also has showers available for a small fee (M-F, 8-11:30 and 1-4:30).

Other things to note
The area is at high elevation (6500 feet above sea level), which means in the summer it's hot in the daytime and quite cool at night. Conversely, in the wintertime it snows and can be quite cold (woodstove and wood supplied in wintertime). You will need to bring your own drinking water, hand sanitizer and/or wipes, and headlamps or flashlights for trips to the outhouse are recommended.

The night sky is *incredible* up here on Carson Mesa, as are the sunrises and sunsets. Experiencing Canyon de Chelly National Monument--the only national park on tribal trust land where tribal members live and farm in the canyon--is a must. Attending a local rodeo, country western dance or going to the flea market (swop meet) on Fridays in Chinle also highly recommended (best place for mutton stew, green chiles, tortillas, fry bread, navajo jewelry, traditional teas and medicines, etc.)! Finally, tune in to AM radio KTNN AM 660, which is a Navajo-language , country format station, and you'll learn a lot about local events, dances, community issues and the Navajo language by listening to it. Enjoy your travels across Navajoland!

As a host...I thought it would be a great idea to use the Hogan to host travelers from afar and near to rest and recuperate while exploring Navajo land. I love spending time with my animals, playing slow-pitch/fast-pitch softball, woodworking, traveling, playing music with our band, hiking, and meeting new people.
