-From 180, turn South (right from Hwy 64, left from Flagstaff 180) between highway marker 264 and 263.
-There are red colored reflective triangle signs that will lead you to the property from there. DO NOT go down a dirt road if you do not see the sign.
-Please follow the signs, they will lead you down the roads in the best condition to your Nest :)

Interaction with guests

I will be onsite most of the time, usually working on more buildings, but will be available for questions.

Other things to note

Here at Nest In Harmony location, we value natural living and alternative living styles and will be featuring different living structures. I lived and worked in the Grand Canyon National Park recently where I was a carpenter and tour guide and hosted many Couchsurfing guests from around the world. I may be able to answer some of your questions or give you resources to learn. I am friends with many locals from the Canyon and around the area and they may be visiting. We will be providing boiled free range eggs, organic oats, and a piece of fruit along with 'cowboy' coffee made in a percolator or tea. An older dog of Great Dane/Black Lab mix will be on the property. His name is Smokey and he is very friendly, even with other dogs. Please do not feed Smokey, even if he gives you the sweetheart look :) Please ask in advance about our locally made free range beef and bean chili dinner option, offered for an extra charge.

This place was everything we hoped for. It was beautiful and secluded, and a truly one of a kind experience. Visit if you are looking for a memorable stay you will remember forever. Shane is a great host and be sure to follow his directions. The chili is a must.

Shane's location is a great experience. It's hard to find cool little places like this. Excited to see what the future holds in store for this camp site!

I've never stayed in a tipi and it was a great experience. I loved how eco friendly everything was. Seeing sun set, the beautiful stars and sun rise.

Awesome spot. Directions seemed complicated at first but was actually super easy to follow.

The only thing wrong with this place was my decision to stay for only one night. You'll need two--even if you're only seeing the Canyon in one day. If you want to camp in the Grand Canyon but don't have the know-how, time or energy, this is the perfect place for you! Note Shane's other listings (another tipi and two tents) are part of a charming village, complete with a communal fireplace, dining area, compostable bathroom, and charging station. If you want to wake up with the sunrise, stay in one of the tents. But if you want to get a solid night's sleep after an arduous hike or long road trip, rest in one of the authentic, Native American tipis. They keep you cool in the morning and comfy at night. Shane takes care of everything. From an organic, locally sourced breakfast to solar-powered lanterns that changes colors, each detail of your experience is thoughtfully constructed. He even built everything in his village. Yes, everything. Ask him about it. Some tips: -Order the chili. (I'm not a chili person, but Shane let me have a sample. Delicious. Made with sweet potatoes and served with GF bread.) -Bring a mobile charger (Shane provides one out of a camper van; but I wish I brought one to take into my tipi.) -Drive slow, especially at night (I'm talking ve never seen such a breathtaking night sky.) Thank you, Shane!

Hello! For most of my life, I have lived in the Southwest and particularly Arizona and also lived and worked in the Grand Canyon National Park as a carpenter and then tour guide. I currently am investing my energy in building alternative and sustainable natural style buildings and sharing their charm with others.
