CABIN AND WAITLIST FOR 2025: please email email@example.com if you would like to be on the waitlist to apply to stay in the guest writer's cabin.
Owl Farm is a private residence and only invited guests are allowed. Hunter's wife, Anita plans to continue to host small events that do often include invitations from members of the public who have requested private tours. Woody Creek is a unique place with excellent neighbors, so we do not allow walk-ins or trespassers under any circumstances. Though we do welcome our invited guests with open arms. Please subscribe to the newsletter for those special events. Thank you supporting the Owl Farm Trust, and for keeping the authentic Gonzo spirit alive at Hunter S. Thompson's Owl Farm for future generations.

Hunter S. Thompson’s Writing Cabin contains one of Hunter S. Thompson's desks in a peaceful ranch style cabin on his Owl Farm compound. Under some circumstances, Hunter Thompson’s wife, Anita, who still lives in the main house, invites guests to see the private museum. Because it is her private residence, a tour is not necessarily included in cabin stay. Though she and the Gonzo team make sure that you have the privacy and amenities to relax and work at Hunter's Owl Farm.
This classic cabin was owned by Hunter Thompson until his death in 2005. He hosted guests, staff, and spent time in the main historic part of the cabin (now the master bedroom).
