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.

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.

We will be back for a 3rd year.
We have traveled from Wisconsin and have stayed at the yurt twice, and we will be back for a third. We cook in most meals and the kitchen has everything you would need to cook full meals, which we love.
The river was up and running, listening to it is amazing.
Best place to call home in paonia. Cosy beautiful place. Owner is super nice! I would like to come back in the summer to enjoy the deck. Cheers!
George’s yurt made what was an otherwise not so successful trip manageable
The property was great. Private, conveniently located to Paonia and Hotchkiss it was convenient for the business aspects of my trip.
I definitely will return and of all the available lodging options in the area this is the highest quality:
Vineyard walking tours with tasting rooms just a few miles away on neighboring farms,
Black Canyon National Monument located just 20 minutes away, New single track trails for mountain bikers located just outside Paonia, Walk along the rivers edge right here on the property on the lower acreage in the cottonwood forest, great for birding!
