"This is the first review I've ever done, but the Mountain Belle cabin is well worth the effort. My husband and I agreed that it was the best place we've ever spent the night in.
Not for the faint of heart or someone who wants room service, this cabin requires four wheel drive to get to and has no electricity other than solar powered lights and an indoor RV toilet. But, oh, the views and connection with nature it has! It is completely off the beaten path though only two miles from the highway. On a hike, we saw elk and other wildlife. The cabin itself had wrap around windows, so we went to bed seeing the multitude of stars and woke up seeing the surrounding mountains. A creek runs just down the mountain a little ways.
The cabin itself was beautiful, comfortable and clean - wood stove, fully stocked wood pile, kitchen with all the dishes and cookware you would need. The owners were great to work with, and the price was spectacular compared to the other cabins in the area.
This was the highlight of our trip!"

"We've stayed here multiple times and my only hesitancy at recommending this cabin is there will be more competition next year. It is located in one of the most dramatic spots in Colorado, just below Red Mountain Pass and just off 550. (You can hear louder road traffic.) In the summer, when we have stayed, the marshy meadows around the cabin are covered in wild flowers. Waterfalls cascade down the sides of the peaks. Inside is as comfortable as you could want for a solar-powered, off-the-grid cabin above 10,000 feet, with far more room than you'd expect. The front bedroom has a new, very comfortable king bed. The queen bed in back shares the room with a piano. Our family of 4 has never had to use the upstairs bunkroom, which could sleep another 4. The kitchen has a good gas stove and modest-sized fridge, plenty of utensils, pans etc. There's a gas grill on the back deck and a nice, hot shower and bath in the bathroom. We used the cabin as a base for mind-blowing hikes (Ice Lake is just down the road); as the world's best backyard where our kids can play or watch hummingbirds, rabbits and deer; and just as a place to hang out, reading books or magazines and gaping at the peaks through the window. (As a bonus, the cabin is well-stocked with skiing and other outdoor magazines.) Be aware that it is not a luxury property; you will have to haul your trash to a dumpster in Silverton, a 10-minute drive away. There's a washing machine (broken last time we visited) but no drier so at a minimum you will have to air dry clothes or wash them in Silverton. Get your groceries in Durango or Montrose while driving in. But none of that matters when you're at the cabin, watching the stars come out over the peaks after another perfect alpine day."

"The house was great -- lots of natural light, beautiful views, and plenty of space. If you're coming in the winter, make sure you've got 4-wheel drive and/or good snow tires as the road and driveway can be tough when it storms. The owner is very responsive and friendly. Overall, very enjoyable."

"I've stayed at this house for three consecutive years. Das Haus is always clean and has everything you need. The owner is very good to work with and he makes sure the stay was pleasurable. This place is highly recommended!!"
