About George Hall
My name is George W. Hall III and I am a Sculptor with a masters in architecture from UCLA that built the VRBO property specifically for his 85 year old sculptor father. George w. Hall Jr. needed a place close to us to make sculpture,draw,read,and enjoy his remaining years with his golden retriever until the big thumb came out of the sky and squashed them both. We had the perfect location and you are looking at the result of a sons love of his father.The main house, not the rental, was placed on the Colorado Historical Register through the tireless efforts of my wife Devon VanDusen. Trust me, Without her input, your stay would be less enjoyable.
George Hall purchased this Studio in 1983
Why George Hall chose Paonia
Riverwalk Yurts, in Paonia, Colorado, has the tricked out Riverwalk Yurt, positioned at the top of the property’s riverfront, and as one travels downstream, you pass the Riverwalk Tipi (primitive yet directly on river) and end up at the Grove Yurt (also primitive and on the river) at the bottom. We also have a 2 RV spaces with power and water hookups and a dump station inland of the tipi. We are just finishing up a shower, toilet house for general use for guests on the lower property.
What makes this Studio unique
The property is 35 acres that meanders along the North Fork of the Gunnison River. There are 3 small tended fields on the upper sections of the property.This is where the brick house that is on the state register is situated. The lower sections range from unmanicured meadows with random succulents to stands old growth cottonwoods on the river bank. In the center of these trees stands a primitive 30'Yurt in its own natural clearing.

Nature's Perfect Spot
The Riverwalk Yurt in Paonia is pure magic. My husband and I have been fortunate enough to travel the world and yet, this little spot brought us something we've never experienced. The ability to be completely one with nature away from the mad pace of life back in the city. To really hear the silence-broken only by the sounds of the river, to walk the property each morning and smile as our pups raced up and down the trail, to stare up at the stars at night, and to slow down enough to truly reconnect with each other and ourselves was absolute perfection. We fell in love with this place and it was a wonderful way to start the new year with intention!
A must stay!
The Riverwalk Yurt is a wonderful place to get away from it all. The beautiful views, the sound of the river, and thirty five acres to roam make you feel like you are getting back to nature. Yet, you have all the creature comforts in the yurt including a hot tub and gorgeous gas fireplace. In addition, the restaurants in Paonia just 3 miles away were just amazing with all the farm fresh produce. We had a wonderful time and George and Devon are wonderful hosts. I would encourage you to go visit! Your furry kids will love it too!
Perfect location for some proper R&R! Yurt comfortable and well-equipped. Desk and property were amazing. Paonia was a wonderful little town surrounded by great wineries and fun things to do. We hope to come back!!!
Thank you George and Devon. We loved the peaches and blackberries. You were the perfect hosts.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. George was right there to greet us when we arrived & showed us all the amenities. The yurt was just beautiful with all the comforts of home (sans TV) which is the whole point. The setting is spectacular! The Gunnison river is right outside your door & the sound of rushing water lulls you to sleep at night. Enjoyed naps in the hammock, fly fishing, hiking, antiquing in nearby towns, reading, soaking in the hot tub & generally just relaxing & recharging. Would definitely go back!
Slice of Heaven
Most wonderful place ever! The Yurt was comfortable and clean and cozy. Beautiful views and the sound of the river was mesmerizing. This is the place to come to and leave all your worries behind. George and Devon were wonderful hosts. One of the best vacations we’ve had. Most certainly will be coming back.
