Thanks to guests just like you, Kale's Cottage is by far the most popular and sought after Airbnb in Western Colorado. Our guests leave honest reviews, and we invite you to read through them. Elegant, private, modern and pet friendly, the cottage is like having your own custom 374 sq ft hotel room complete with full kitchen, Scandinavian wood stove, walk in tiled shower and Bose surround sound. When you stay with us, we know that you will experience a uniquely beautiful and peaceful property located within the city limits and within just minutes of downtown Paonia. Well behaved dogs are allowed in the cottage ($10 flat rate one time pet charge payable upon arrival) so book your stay now to ensure that your canine companion is treated like family!

Our sensible earth-friendly 'Solargon Cottage' was chosen as one of 40 structures featured world-wide in the acclaimed 2013 book "Urgent Architecture: 40 Sustainable Housing Solutions for a Changing World" by Bridgette Meinhold. The cottage is 374 elegant square feet and was also featured on the tiny home blog immediately upon completion in 2010. (Search online for 'Kale and Laura's Solargon').

Our spacious one acre property borders open space and overlooks the residential streets of Paonia. Our guests immediately notice how few neighbors we have and how much nature and beauty we enjoy from our unique location. In the center of this very large garden oasis sits the ultra-efficient 'Solargon Cottage', which was custom built by your host and two friends from the finest toxin-free materials available. The comfortable round house 'hogan' design is arguably the most energy efficient house not only in the Town of Paonia, but also in Colorado. It features simple and elegant comfort, unlimited wireless wifi, indoor/outdoor 7 speaker surround sound, beautiful Liebherr Energy Star refrigerator, full kitchen with large propane oven and four propane burners, indoor dining table for six (outdoor dining for 10-20), bathroom with 10 foot ceilings and four foot vanity, walk in custom tiled shower, queen bed with cozy pillows and comforter, and huge windows with views of the garden terraces and the larger surrounding mountains.

The cottage is surrounded by a haven of fruit trees, raised garden beds, red flagstone patios and walkways, and custom crafted outdoor living essentials such as a fully functional outdoor kitchen, shaded redwood patio arbor for meals and relaxing, a 10x12 locally crafted wall tent for naps, snuggles and/or extra guests ($20 flat fee), and a grassy private lawn.

We invite you to listen to the wind chimes in your own private kingdom and yet within 3 minutes of easy biking you will find yourself in the center of downtown Paonia. A beautiful walking, biking and horse trail is accessed in our backyard with views of the West Elk Wilderness, Grand Mesa, and Mt. Gunnison.

Private parking is provided. We are cannabis friendly and request that you smoke on the redwood deck outside or under the shade of the hops-covered arbor.

NOTE: Airbnb charges a 7-10 percent surcharge on top of the posted rate above plus the State of Colorado occupancy fee. This is how Airbnb makes profit. This fee is similar to the typical taxes and fees associated with a motel room.

The small space is easy to keep warm with four wall mounted Eco Heater 400 watt silent units. A modern and beautiful Rais crafted wood stove with rounded glass is beautiful for both romantic evenings or simply as a place for flowers, candles or a sweet altar to add to throughout your visit.

Small house you say? Ask anyone. We have routinely hosted dinners for 15-30 guests both in the house and on the patio and have found the circular layout of the eight-sided 'Solargon Cottage' to be conducive to enjoying a large group of people, or simply having a romantic evening for two.

Our outdoor homestead features a warming hut with futon and wood stove, outdoor canning and cooking kitchen, two large outdoor freezers for your abundant harvest week, large private green lawn and gardens, walking paths and huge fenced in gardens with fruit trees throughout. Our outdoor living scene (as pictured) is a great way to get the most out of your visit to Colorado's premier farm-to-table destinations. Hire one of our local chefs to prepare you a meal either in the 'Solargon Cottage' or in the outdoor kitchen.

Our 1 acre homested is located off of 2nd street on the edge of town. We have a large hidden driveway and our property does not front any major roads.

Driving to town is easy and we have plenty of parking tucked up on the homestead. However, we do encourage our guests to walk or bicycle to town. The Stewart Ditch nature trail has an easement through our back yard and offers stunning views of the surrounding West Elk Wilderness, Mt. Gunnison, vibrant orchards, vineyards and the landscape of the North Fork Valley.

We encourage you to visit our local brewpub Revolution Brewing, eat at a variety of great downtown restaurants, visit Fresh & Wylde Farmhouse Inn, bicycle to the wineries throughout the valley and join us for live music, theatre productions and the abundantly creative lifestyle that is the signature of this amazing community.

Guests who want to leave their dogs outside will be happy to find the dog kennel located next to the parking area. However, as a reminder, your well behaved dogs are always welcome to stay with you in the cottage. We ask that after you book and receive your welcome email, please let us know if you will be bringing you dogs so we can prepare for your stay.

I have an even smaller dry cabin/office located in the shady trees on the very western edge of the enormous 3,000 square foot dog kennel I built in 2011. Though my dogs are rarely in the kennel, I do ask guests to please check in with myself or my co-hosts Misha & Darren to make sure it is ok to use this kennel for your dogs.

Misha, Darren,and I enjoy welcoming our guests.

Please leave the cottage clean when you check out. If you can restock the firewood from the piles right next to the cottage that would be a great help. Thank you and enjoy your private pet-friendly getaway!

The hot tub is a $45 fee that covers the hundreds of gallons of water filled and the 3-4 hours it takes to make it hot. Hot tub is cleaned prior to each use, and once you've reserved it, you can keep it hot for the duration of your stay by feeding the small wood stove connected to the tub. It's really lovely. You can (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) the $45 directly to Misha once you have arranged with her to have the hot tub on our cleaning schedule.

One of the nicest Airbnbs we've stayed in. If this place is available, book it. And make sure to pay the extra $45 for the hot tub, it's worth it!

Misha, Darren, and Kale have an incredible spot nestled so cozy near town. The property is so funky/hip that I just felt so comfortable. The parking is next to the exotic yard that is full of beautiful plants, veggies, and lush green landscape. The hot tub was an added bonus that piqued my curiosity and kept us entertained... Misha was so kind and gave us excellent tips and tricks. The home was clean and the fresh floral arrangements put a smile on our faces. Thank you for an incredibly easy and quick escape from the city life. My boyfriend proposed on this trip too! Thank you again, we will definitely return soon!!!

Our experience at Kale’s cottage was absolutely amazing. It’s private and feels secluded, yet close enough to town that you don’t have to go far for groceries, or to a restaurant if you so choose. Tons of trails close by, and the hot tub was the perfect temperature and great for two people. Definitely looking forward to staying again!

Thank you so very much Danielle for your kind words and for being such a great guest. We always love it when our guests connect with the abundance that town offers, including the brew pub, coffee shops, diners and farm to table restaurants. Of course we love it even more when you choose to enjoy the gardens and privacy while indulging in the soothing pleasure of the wood fired hot tub!! All the best until we see you again! Safe travels and thank you again - Kale

We very much enjoyed our stay at Kale's Cottage. It was clean, quiet, and cozy. The perfect stop on our trip heading west. We got a great night's sleep on the comfortable bed and a nice warm shower. The cabin had everything we needed to cook and relax. Thank you!

Thank you so much for choosing us for your brief stay in Paonia! We certainly do hope that you are able to carve out some time for a return visit. Happy hours at the brew pub, wine tasting around the valley, hikes and snowshoeing and everything else imaginable is available in the beautiful North Fork Valley throughout the year. Be well and we hope to see you again soon. Best - Kale

Hello -

I am pleased to meet you and it's my honor to welcome you to our popular Western Colorado Airbnbs. We offer fantastic pricing, private and peaceful settings, and your well-behaved pets are always welcome! I am a dog lover to the core! My co-hosts and I believe in treating guests as family. We take enormous pride in welcoming guests from both near and far away. We take pride in the fact that people just like you choose our cottage for their private, peaceful and pet friendly getaways.

I am a wildland firefighter, sleddog (skijor) racer, backcountry guide, river runner, powder skier, community supporter and long-time lover of Colorado. The mountain towns, trails, rivers and people who make this place so special have been a huge part of my life for the past two decades. With the help of close friends I build the houses you stay in. My team and I believe in creating spaces that are out of the ordinary, super efficient, and surrounded by beauty. My passion is build spaces that offer you a great value, where you can feel relaxed, connected to nature, well cared for and at peace.

I've spent the last seven years pouring countless hours and sweat into developing two properties. The first is 'Kale's Cottage', our extremely popular pet-friendly airbnb located on a beautiful one acre homestead in Paonia, Colorado.
The second is our epic backcountry ski chalet called 'The Big Little'. This off-grid 'hard to get to' adventure lodge is located at 10,200ft above the stunning mountain town of Lake City, Colorado. Similar to a 10th Mountain Division hut you must park your car at our staging area on County Road 30 and hike one hour and 1.5 miles up to our luxury chalet. This can be challenging so only book if you have experience with adventure travel.

Questions? Call me. Email me. Text me. I would love to answer your questions and help customize your Western Colorado experience.

Your Host,
Kale Casey
