Ourcave house is built into the vertical cliffs of Tertiary Ojo Alamo sandstone and overlooks the beautiful La Plata river valley some 300’ below. 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 steps cut into the sandstone along the pathway. From the Cave and the cliff tops, you have an unparalleled view of our beautiful southwest sunsets over the beautiful La Plata River valley and the four states of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado that make up the Four Corners.
The Cave is a manmade cave and was originally intended to be a unique office for Bruce Black, the owner who is a consulting geologist. When this plan didn’t materialize, they decided to make it into a bed and breakfast.
Since there is no elevator, it is wise to pack as lightly as possible. A backpack is a good idea.
