Kokopelli's Cave Bed & Breakfast - New Mexico


Kokopelli's Cave Bed & Breakfast - Farmington, New Mexico

Kokopelli's Cave Bed & Breakfast is a privately owned luxury cliff dwelling located north of Farmington, New Mexico near the Mesa Verde National Monument. From the cave and the cliff tops you have an unparalleled view of beautiful southwest sunsets over the four states of the Four Corners area.

To the west you can see Shiprock and the Chuska mountains on the Navajo Indian reservation in northwest New Mexico. To the west and northwest you see the Carrizo Mountains in northeastern Arizona. To the northwest you can see the Ute Mountains and to the North loom the snow capped La Plata and San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado.

      

Kokopelli's Cave Bed and Breakfast

  
The cave itself is 70' below the surface. The entrance is located in the cliff face and is reached by walking down a sloping path and intermittent steps cut into the sandstone along the pathway. There is a short ladder at the bottom of the path with three wooden steps that land you on the flagstone porch and the front entrance to Kokopelli's "digs." You really have to want to come to Kokopelli's cave!
 
This 1,650 square foot, one-bedroom cave home carved from a 65-million year old sandstone formation 280 feet above the La Plata River is furnished with plush carpeting, Southwestern style furniture and accents, hot and cold running water, a well-appointed kitchen including microwave and washer/dryer, cascading waterfall-style shower, and a flagstone hot tub!

The cave was originally intended to be a unique geologic office for Bruce Black who is a consulting geologist. The cave is not a natural cave. The original excavation was contracted for, and the cave was blasted out, in 1980. In the early 1980's the father-son team of Bruce (the elder) and his son Bruce (the younger) moved their drilling rig onto the cliffs above the excavation and drilled three holes into the cave for ventilation, electrical access lines, and chimney.

 

By the fall of 1996, the structure was ready for occupation and Bruce (younger) and his wife lived in the cave until 1997. Bruce (the elder) and Margie Black began sharing the cave as a bed (really the whole house) and continental breakfast in June 1997.
