Harvest Hosts is an incredibly unique RV membership program. Through this program, members are granted access to 5166+ host locations across North America for overnight accommodations with no camping fees. To support each of these businesses, members typically make a small purchase of wine or produce or whatever it is that the business is selling or offering. Locations include establishments such as farms, wineries, breweries, museums, restaurants, attractions, and more. Stoneyard Distillery is a great example of one of our incredible hosts. Located by i-70 in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, this location distills all of their own liquor from Colorado beet sugar.

- Stoneyard Distillery on Harvest Hosts
In 2013, Stoneyard Distillery began production of beet sugar spirits, drawing the name from the old stone yard that surrounded it. Located just above the confluence of the Eagle and Colorado Rivers, this site was chosen for its great water source. A private water system pulls Rocky Mountain water directly from the river, allowing for pure and fresh flavos. The distillery itself also sits on a 4,000-year-old lava flow of the Dotsero Volcano, making this place truly one-of-a-kind. The lava rock provides the vapor refining distillation packing in the still that was hand-built by the distillery owners. Visitors from all over recognize that the true “Spirit of Colorado” is surely distilled directly into the spirits of Stoneyard Distillery. They encourage visitors to come pay them a visit and see for themselves!
The Business Today
Today, Stoneyard continues to operate their distillery in their beautiful tasting rooms. One tasting room is in Glenwood Springs, while the other sits in the town of Dotsero. Both feature an industrial-looking setting and an excellent variety of spirits, including bourbon and spirits infused with coffee, cinnamon, and horchata. In addition to selling tastings and bottles at their two locations, they also sell spirits both online and at a wide variety of liquor stores across Colorado, New Mexico, and beyond! Be sure to use their finder (on their website) to locate a private retailer near you!
Their tasting rooms have seasonally changing hours, but they sometimes open for private appointments outside of their regular hours. Be sure to give them a call if you plan to drop by!
Joining Harvest Hosts
Stoneyard Distillery became a Harvest Hosts location over three years ago, and they have since hosted many satisfied members. In addition to tours and tastings, they also have both a gift shop and a patio area available. The owners ask that all Harvest Hosts guests arrive by 6pm on the day of their planned arrival. This allows for plenty of time to both park and visit their location. They currently have fifteen pet-friendly spaces available for RVs of any size!
