Absolutely no truck-trailer combinations please. Our site requires a tight 3 point turn around. Only Class B, Class C (25’ or less) or Pickups with campers. We offer you safe place to stop in Albuquerque. Our home is on .89 acre. We have a fairly level spot on our second driveway available for a small Motorhome. Sorry, but trailers can’t maneuver in our tiny turn around area. We limit guests to Truck/campers or Motorhomes no longer than 26’. Narrowest width of the driveway is 11’. We can easily drive our own 24’ motor home into this space. We do have a spotter help with turn around. PLEASE have a spotter help you turn around. If you are alone we are happy to help you. I’m happy to help you with our 100’ of fresh water hose to fill your freshwater tank from the faucet on the west side of the house. We have hard well water. 30 amps is available on the shop. We work weekdays and get up with the roosters, so we go to bed at 9pm on week nights. After 9pm please keep your conversations low (in spring, summer & fall) as most of us in the neighborhood sleep with our windows open at night. Typically it cools down quickly at 5,890 ft elevation and after you’ve cooled off your rig with a.c., fans should suffice. Ultimately we want you to be comfortable and enjoy your stay with us. If you need a.c. all night, please use it. IF YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO LEAVE A REVIEW, DON’T PLAN ON RETURNING. EVER. A small donation towards electricity is greatly appreciated. Typically we have extra room in our trash cans for a kitchen size bag of trash, please check with us first. Pets are welcome, but strictly on a leash. Our street is quiet, but neighbors SPEED by and they don’t expect dogs in the front yard or on the street. Please pick up after your dogs. Please don’t request a stay with us with the intention of leaving your pet in your RV while you go sightseeing. We love our dogs, but we (and our neighbors) don’t want to listen to your dogs barking while you are away. We have a lovely front courtyard to visit with you if you’re interested in socializing. We are vaccinated & boosted. Depending on weather, feel free to put out your awning, roll out your carpet, open up your slides, set up an outdoor kitchen, and use your lawn chairs in the driveway of the shop. Look East to the mountains at sunset as the Sandia’s turn pink! We look forward to meeting you!, please provide me with your cell # and I will text you a photo of where to park. Suggested Local Attractions:Sandia Peak Tramway is minutes away. Sandia Crest, Historic Old Town, National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, NM Museum of Natural History and Science, Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, Hispanic Cultural Center, RT 66, Tinker Town, Zoo, Bio Park, Aquarium.

We received a warm welcome from the owners. The place is beautiful with mountain views. Very quiet, large space and intimate. The owners generously offered us peaches and tomatoes picked directly from their garden! Thanks a lot! We strongly recommend stopping here.
