near perfect cabin for large or small groups.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great. The floor plan is open and perfect for large groups to hang out. The cabin is stocked with pretty much everything you need from towels and robes for the awesome hot tub to seasonings for cooking. My only complaint is the beds could use some upgrading and maybe put some thicker curtains on in the bedroom so people can sleep in while on vacation. Other than that it was pretty much perfect!

Excellent - even better than the pictures!

Our family had a great time! The owners were so, so accommodating for our large group! We had a great time skiing, riding the train, visiting the Four Corners monument, and Mesa Verde National Park. Thanks again!!

Perfect for a large family

  • 5 of 5

2 families of 4 slept more than comfortably. Kids loved the Foosball table and family board games. Owners live onsite were amazing and very accommodating. They even had a Christmas tree set up. Great touch, especially being we went there for the Polar Bear Express. Kids already want to come back. Thanks for a great stay.

Very relaxing place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a very relaxing place to stay. Katie and Scott couldn't have been more hospitable. We were there with our children and grandchildren and ranged in age from 3 months to 72 yrs. The kitchen was large and well outfitted. The refrigerator was huge and appeared to be new. The hot tub and decks were enjoyed by all. Located behind the owners' home, away from the road, and against a wooded slope, it felt secluded. While those used to 5 star resorts might find it too rustic, we didn't at all and it was very clean with a comfortably furnished gathering room with a large flat screen TV. The Foosball in the loft was a big hit too! The only thing for our size group that would have made it a little easier would have been more than 2 baths, one of which you had to walk through the Master bedroom to get to. They had beds for us all (never even used the air mattresses) but an extra half bath off the loft would have been perfect. However, the price was fair and we would return again. It's a wonderful area to be in the outdoors and Mineshaft was very accommodating!
