Geronimo-Farms Seeks New Tenants, hopefully for the last time. It is available April 15, 2019. Applicants Must visit the property to be considered. Not first come first served. Background, credit and reference checks will be required. First, last and a full month security deposit required. Minimum of a two year lease.
I live in (a) Paradox. Literally, figuratively, and metaphorically. Want to join me and allow it to flourish?
I live part time in the guest house/office, and I rent the main house and the property out. I am seeking the right couple or individual to Rent my property while we both add infrastructure (you labor, me some labor and materials) to expand it into a Glampground that could earn revenue for both of us.
I own 45 acres with BLM on 3 sides and a non-owned private 5 acre parcel to my West. The property is remote. It is nearly an hour from Moab, an hour and a half from Telluride and 2.5 hours from Grand Junction. Paradoxically, it is right on a state highway that goes nowhere, so access is easy with very little traffic.
The main house is a 1700 sq. foot Frankenstein of rooms all tiled and recently updated. It comes fully furnished or the furnishings can be removed. It can be outfitted as a 2 or 3 bedroom with one bath and a huge tub, washer and dryer, fireplace and all the amenities including decks on 3 sides and a big gas grill.
The property supports 40 organic fruit trees and 3 organic vegetable gardens. All of the crop but what I can eat has traditionally belonged to the tenant, but I am open to hemp or 24 plants of cannabis on a crop share for the right partner. Obviously if we are going to have a glampground, everything will be very public, so no gorilla grows.
Most unique aspect about the property is that it mouths two canyons and a creek. The creek (LaSal) and East canyon follow onto public property and a county maintained dirt road that ends in a ghost town and abandoned copper mill. The South (Sharp Canyon) canyon is on my property and can not be accessed any other way and it affords Total privacy. There are ATV trails everywhere (except Sharp Canyon), 3 National Parks within 1.25 hours and I am cannabis friendly and 4.2 miles from the Utah border. There is no reason to think this won't be popular.
But it must be small, boutique, intimate and respectful to the environment and our lives. The acres are small (about 7), because they are surrounded by canyons that are largely inaccessible. I would anticipate the Glampground would only run in the warm months, but I am writing this on Feb 2, 2019 in a sweater on the porch and no snow on the ground.
The farm has trailers, tractors, backhoes and gators to build it out. This summer would mostly be an opportunity to start some camping and learn the farm. A multi-year lease is best for this and profit sharing will be negotiated.
The right tenant, Must be able to pay per month rent, month in and month out, regardless of Glampground income. The Glampground already has 2 RVs and would could have some camp spots set up this summer and generating income for us both, but it will take a lot of work.
I follow Burning Man's 11 Principles and The Four Agreements.
Write to me if you are interested.
