Ever wanted to experience living with goats in a rural partial off-grid cabin?! You’re in luck!!
Caring for our animals here at The Little Goat Outpost is an every day kind of job. This can feel limiting when you love to travel as much as we do! So we have decided to turn our challenges into opportunities, by offering the ability to book a “Homestead-Sit” at The Little Goat Outpost!
Our Homestead-Sits are first-come, first-serve offerings of dates when we will be traveling, that are available for you to stay in our 660 sq. ft cabin and tend the homestead in our absence. You will enjoy the company of John Waters and David Lynch the Goats, Daisy the rescue doggie, and our two indoor-only kitties, Petunia and Dulcinea. You will also have access to our beautiful 2 acres of treed high-desert land at 8,176′, with incredible views of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range right out the kitchen window, and surrounding natural boulders just a stone’s throw away.
In exchange for the opportunity to enjoy our homestead, we simply ask that you take care of the animals! This is actually pretty easy to do. When you book your Homestead-Sit, we will make sure to overlap your stay by at least one full day while we are still here, so you can experience our animal care routine in person! We will leave the cabin clean for you, and expect that you will do the same at the end of your stay. More information on animal care responsibilities and general expectations for your stay will be available upon requesting to book a Homestead-Sit. If you love your stay and would like to leave a tip towards keeping our operations going here at The Little Goat Outpost, we are happy to accept.
Because you will be staying in our personal home and caring for our beloved animal companions during your Homestead-Sit, a huge degree of trust is necessary. For this reason, Homestead-Sits are open exclusively to people we know personally. If you are interested in a Homestead-Sit and we have met in person, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (feel free to include your relevant animal care experiences, online profiles, and/or references, and any other information that might be useful to us!). We will be creating a calendar of available dates for Homestead-Sits that will be open to view for approved Homestead-Sitters! Once you see a date you’d like to claim, simply email us to request and we will change the status from OPEN to RESERVED to confirm your time here! We will add new Homestead-Sitters to the availability calendar as the need arises.
