Welcome to my website and to Crestone! The area of Crestone and the San Luis Valley is a hidden treasure nestled below the majestic peaks of the Sange de Cristo. The region offers seclusion, peace, nearby skiing, hot springs, and a wealth of wilderness recreation opportunities. Crestone itself is a world-class center for spiritual retreat, and is home to more than 28 communities representing the world's wisdom traditions: Buddhism, Sufism, Hinduism, Christianity, native American spirituality, and their many variations.
Crestone is an ideal home for those who want a quieter pace of life, the benefits of a tightly knit, caring community, and natural surroundings the caliber of a national park. Crestone offers organic and natural groceries and restaurants, local vegetables, dairy products, and meats, all from organic or earth-conscious providers. We even have our own local yak herd straight from the Himalayas! Crestone also is a haven for alternative construction technologies. In this valley of bright sunny days, solar power and off-grid living are common and viable options. Purchase financing is available for these types of construction, and local experts can provide servicing.
People come to this area drawn by the ancient pull of Mount Blanca, a sacred site in native American tradition. This same pull draws seekers of all stripes to explore their inner selves and their creative selves on the blank page of a small, remote, community. Please call me to learn more about this lovely hidden treasure. Single family homes, land, investment properties, and retreat properties are available.
