About The Community:

Smugglers' Roost is a pioneering community which serves as a hub for exploration, creativity and trade.

WE Continue TO ADD Amenities. Sit by the soothing sounds of the waterfall at our new Koi Pond as birds gather to feed and bathe. We're now wood-firing pizza in the new Horno (adobe-brick pizza oven). We'll also be firing pottery soon in new Raku Pottery Ground Kilns. If you've always wanted to try sculpting pottery - now's your chance. The new Community “Pod “now serves as a meeting venue, center for trade and gallery for artistic display.

Come create your own culinary delights in the Outdoor Community Kitchen complete with sinks, food prep area, grills, antique wood-fired stove, smokers and gas pizza cookers or grab something from the new Food Truck which will be open soon.

The Pavilion serves as our live music venue, outdoor movie theatre and area for community gatherings, which we hold frequently. Our Gems and Minerals Workshop has several workbenches for processing the wealth of gems and minerals found in the area, including turquoise from our turquoise mine in nearby Old Hachita. Grow your own veggies year-round in our Horticulture Tents.

IT'S Springtime at the Roost. It's time to make new friends while exploring a different hobby, learning something new, reconnecting with nature or reinvigorating an old creative passion. Come join us for community events, nights under the stars or at a gathering around the fire pit. By day, set out on an adventure and take advantage of the multitude of outdoor activities available in our area, including hiking, rock climbing, cycling, off-roading, rockhounding, horseback riding and birding. Join us for an arts/craft workshop, some live music, a wood-fired pizza, an engaging presentation by a visiting expert, a barbeque, a cooking contest, movie night and a telescope viewing.

Increased Value - Today's Low Price. Our improvements to the water, commercial septic & primary electric have greatly upped the value of our sites. Take advantage of this growth in value at the current low pricing.

Although her new projects are highly confidential, her initial staffing of artists is being drawn from Roost residents. We anticipate continued growth of the arts and craft industry on-site in order to build a lucrative economic model for the future.

All infrastructure is in place. We've completed an enhancement to our water system and one to our commercial septic system is upcoming. In addition, we've upgraded the primary electric in order to ensure higher voltage, now and in the future, as rigs and ancillary structures continue to demand more. Other community improvements and the addition of amenities are continuing throughout our now, nearly 50-acre, site.
