    Great place to stay. He helped me park and then later when there were big storms and the possibility of tornadoes he helped me make sure my trailer was okay and secure

    The host was very helpful in helping us setup. We enjoyed his explaining his balloon trips to Albuquerque and Mexico. He really made us feel welcome.

    GC greeted us as we pulled into his hood and told us exactly where to park. Plenty of room to back in, not completely level but nice and flat. We had no AT&T service but he hooked us up to his WiFi without even asking. And offered his outside outlet so I didn’t need to run the Genny to heat up dinner and make coffee in the AM..Class Act. Got a real education on his passion of hot air ballooning. Was interesting to say the least. Would definitely stay again if we were passing through.. Thank You GC…

    I really enjoyed my stay here! The quietest place I ever stayed. Very friendly and hospitable hosts who made me feel very welcome. Helped me with the complicated electronics player in my trailer, let me take a nice nap and then took me out for Taco Tuesday and good conversation. Excellent hosts I highly recommend!
