Located high up in the the La Plata Mountains of Southwest Colorado, this cabin is ideal for the outdoor enthusiast, as it is surrounded by thousands of acres of the San Juan Nation Forest. You can walk, bike, ride horseback or OHV's right from the front door and be right in the middle of it!
The cabin sits on 1-1/2 acres, surrounded by beautiful quaking aspen and tall ponderosa pine trees. It has an open living/ kitchen area with a full size futon, master bedroom with a queen bed, and a smaller bedroom with a full bed. Relax on the huge 560 sq ft covered deck with a bbq grill, picnic table, and chairs. It is 'off the grid' and powered by solar.
There is a full size refrigerator and kitchen stove, as well as cooking utensils, bed linens, and towels. The gas log stove is nice to watch when the sun goes down. There's also a tv and dvd player if you want to watch a movie or two that you bring along (no tv reception- just your movies or plug in your GoPro or camera to view the days adventures); keeping in mind that the solar electricity is limited. Well water is pumped prior to your stay, and the tanks have a capacity of 825 gallons. As mentioned, this place is off the grid, so a bit of conservation of resources is required.
Quality of cellular reception varies depending on your provider....Verizon seems to work well, AT&T requires that I walk up on the hill to get a good signal.....what can I say- this is getting away from it all!
Located 17 miles NNE of Mancos, most of the road is maintained by the forest service and is graveled, it can become slick and muddy in spots however when there is abundant moisture. Note that it is 12 miles from where the blacktop ends....that's the beauty of it!
Availability is mid May thru October....November depends on the snow
