If you like artist/hand built living structures don't miss this. Be sure to buy a membership (very reasonable). Loved pipe dream building. They'd had rain, so the caretakers picked me up in a boat to cross the creek, but it wasn't too high and I...More

Elephante is quite the experience! Located along Oak Creek out with nature. The whole place from the art, structures, surroundings are spectacular. It is a vortex in Cornville, many great vibrations as you walk through each place, your mouth will be open in awe.

It's true that many locals don't know about Eliphante, although that changes more every day. All proceeds of membership to Eliphante go to support preservation and restoration of these amazing works of art. There are no live elephants here, although caretakers may refer to themselves...More

My first trip here was mind boggling. The history of this home made artist dwelling is a love story. It's so hard to describe in words what this place does for the soul. One visit and I'm total AWE!!! 2nd visit as an artist I...More
