The space
Shash Dine' Eco-Retreat: A Glamping Hotel.

Yá'át'ééh (Hello in Navajo). We are a Native American owned large acreage working sheep ranch and off grid B&B offering guests a unique stay at our ranch utilizing quality canvas bell tents, covered wagons, cabins, and traditional Navajo Hogans on the Navajo Nation. In all there are 9 accommodations nicely spaced in a general area. Our ranch is beautifully located very near all areas of attraction - Antelope Canyon, the town of Page and Lake Powell are 15 minutes drive. Horseshoe Bend is only 5 minutes drive from the ranch. Both the north and south rims of the Grand Canyon are 2 hours. Monument Valley, Bryce, Zion, and Marble Canyon are well within driving distance.

The Accommodation:
The KYOOB is very well appointed. Features quality original art works and furnished by KNOLL, Pendleton, The Lewis Kingsley Co, Etsy, The Citizenry, Overland Sheep Skins, Escalante Rug Co, and more. Outfitted with the basic necessities one will need for a pleasant stay - All bedding, thick down comforters, linens, wool blankets and sleeping bags for good measure. Candles, candle lanterns, a flashlight, and a solar light. Books, games, snacks, juice, and water. You'll also fine amenities such as towels, robes, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, tooth brush, and full body and sanitary wipes in your accommodation. Again, the accommodations are off grid - no electricity/no running water.

The Climate:
We are medium to high desert - warmer or strong sun days and cooler nights. Our ranch is at elevation 5500'. Please bring the appropriate clothing for the environment and climate at this time of year - layers, closed toed shoes, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, and plenty of drinking water to stay hydrated as there is no running water.Also, please check weather reports.

The Toilet Facilities:
There are several communal/shared well serviced, well maintained, airy and cleaned-daily modern outhouses/portapotties with tanks on the property.

The Way to Bathe:
Shash Dine' respects that water is a precious commodity in the desert. For your comfort, bathing water is provided in a container that is heated by the sun. There is a communal/shared "camp shower." The camp shower is a wood privacy structure with a snail style entrance. You can see out and above. However, no one can see in. We provide well water sourced 30 miles away and brought to the homestead. There are no private wells on the Navajo nation. In containers the water is heated nicely by the sun. If not you have the ability to heat it further. As it rains so infrequently here in the medium to high desert, and water is an absolute precious resource, bathing here is very much akin to a "Navy Shower" - a method of showering that allows for significant conservation of water and energy by wetting the body with scoopers in the containers, lathering with soap, then rinsing off. Amenities of shampoo, soap, etc., will be available in your accommodation. *** Note: There is NO running water on the Navajo nation.

This stay is very minimalist. One will be immersed in nature. Set in outstanding natural beauty.

The Breakfast, Cooking Here, and Area Restaurants:
We provide a breakfast of fresh fruit, breakfast bars, and your choice of coffee or Navajo Tea. All other meals can be sourced in town at the numerous restaurants. Cooking can also be done over open fire here at the communal/shared outdoor fire pit. There is a grill for the open fire. All other Foodstuff and supplies can be purchased at Safeway or Wal-Mart in Page. Small wood bundles of firewood or charcoal to cook can be purchased at any outlet in the town of Page.

We’re launching movie night on select summer evenings - weather permitting. Popcorn, Twizzlers, Goobers, Dots, Raisinets, and Mexican Coca Cola brought in by PBB&J Concessions.

Again, we thank you for your interest in Shash Dinè Eco-Retreat.

The Directions:
Detailed directions will be set in email. On the day of your arrival please call or email us regarding your approximate arrival time. We require guests to arrive during daylight hours to get settled in and oriented (before 6PM MST). We are an off grid (no electricity/no running water) working sheep ranch and b&b.

Our ranch is 12 miles south of Page, AZ on the HWY 89, 1/4 mile east on Navajo RT 6211. Please refer to our detailed driving directions. It is best to NOT rely solely upon GPS as they've been wrong in the past and have sent guests widely off the mark.

We look forward to hosting you,

Paul and Baya Meehan

We love living here with our family and our animals and welcoming guests like you to stay at our Ranch. We both love to travel and love to hear about our guests background just as much as they love to hear about Baya's Navajo history.

During your stay

We give guests space but are available when needed. We greet all guests personally and give them a bio of the land, people, and accommodations as we check them in. We then tend to give guests privacy. However, we are on property and will certainly welcome questions guests have about the Navajo people and culture, sheep, ranch, and area attractions. Usually you'll find us at the sheep pens and horse corrals.
