When they tire of being indoors they have 3 acres of forest to play and wander on where they can let their imaginations fly. Get a refreshing night's sleep in the new comfortable queen bed. Also find two twin beds in the 2nd bedroom and additional sleeping space for 4 more people in the nearby bunkhouse. The cabin and bunkhouse can sleep 8 people comfortably. The bunk house is only available in the warm months but we can make arrangements to sleep more comfortably within the main cabin.
COMFORT AND AMBIANCE - you can feel the warmth of the wood burning stove and see the beauty of the dancing flames through the glass window. Due to the clearstory windows located at the top of the exposed beam ceiling natural sunlight fills each room with daytime brightness and sparkle. The shade of the pine trees always keeps the temperature in the cabin perfect.

About the owner: We moved to the mountains of Colorado in 1974, fell in love with all it has to offer and have made it our cherished home. Here we raised our two children who are amazing young adults now. Over the years we built our house, 2-story garage with guest room and barn and have treated the land with care. Skiing, hiking, gardening, raising our own beef, landscaping the property and enjoying our dog and cat keep life interesting. To that we add traveling both afar and near with all the variety that is in the Four Corners.
Yes, we find time to pursue our careers. Rollin is a self-employed consulting geologist and Robin is an educator.
Why the Owner Chose Mancos: We purchased the cabin last fall from our friend George and his family. George and his wife Margaret built this log cabin at the same time we created our home so we had a lot in common and enjoyed seeing them when they or their family members came to get away from it all. Since buying the cabin we have been having fun getting it ready to be a vacation rental. We live just a short walk away and this spring will be our first opportunity to offer this comfortable vacation rental for your next get away into nature. We are located in beautiful Echo Basin by the entrance of the San Juan National Forest with the Echo Basin Loop Drive. We are a five mile drive from Mancos, Colorado with nearby Mesa Verde National Park, Ute Mountain Tribal Park and so many other exciting and interesting destinations.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: We love to relax on the shaded porch with a cool drink while watching the deer, listening to the birdsong and watching a gorgeous sunset. In the fall the aspen and Gambel oak trees in the area afford an amazing color show. The cabin would be a great base for nearby hunting in the national forest. In the winter you can cross-country ski right at the cabin or drive to the nearby Chicken Creek Cross-country Ski Area with groomed trails. You can drive 1 mile and ski on the snowmobile tracks or make your own track in the national forest. The owner's maintain a loop track on their property just a minute away.
