About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Located across the Wet Mountain Valley from Crestone Peak and Needle, your view of the Rockies stretches 130 miles from the Spanish Peaks to Mt Princeton. Watch a sunset over the Sangres and see the stars pop out of the crystal black sky. Ease inside to the comfy sectional by a crackling fire. Careful, or you may not make it to the sumptuous king bed!

Welcome the sunrise with the aroma of fresh brewed coffee and steaming pancakes, provided for your convenience. Witness the light spilling down the snowcapped Sangre de Cristos from the hand-hewn breakfast nook, as you plan your new day of adventure!

7 of the Colorado's 52 'Fourteeners' are visible from the couch! Two large bedrooms in the upstairs loft overlook the custom river-rock fireplace.

Antelope share the 5 acres with mule deer, prairie dogs, coyotes, and a wonderful variety of birds.

Enjoy all the comforts of home in this modern cabin. A full-featured gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops make preparing your favorite meals easy. There's both a Keurig and regular coffee maker. The layout and furniture is set up for a large group of family or friends.

The downstairs bathroom has a huge triangular Jacuzzi tub with jets and heater; marble shower; and full-sized washer and dryer. Heated floors on both upstairs and down provide soothing warmth. The wood burning fireplace is perfect for s'mores or extra heat.

There is high-speed wireless internet and a sound system for your tunes.

Every season offers unique attractions - summer wildflowers, fall aspen foliage, winter snowstorms, and spring's awakening!

From mild (a stroll down a quiet road) - to wild (Class V Arkansas River rapids) the area offers something for everyone. Our favorite activities include hiking, biking, river rafting, camping, fishing, relaxing, stargazing, shopping, skiing, snowshoeing, and 4-wheeling. ATV and snowmobile rentals are available nearby.

The Wet Mountain Valley is a 'dark skies' community. The heavens above are filled with sparkles due to the high altitude and lack of light pollution.

Nearby Attractions include- Sangre De Cristo Mountains and Wilderness, Wet Mountains/San Isabel National Forest, Royal Gorge Bridge (above!), Royal Gorge Train (below!), Monarch Ski Mountain, Great Sand Dunes National Park, Mission Wolf, and Hardscrabble Pass.

Elin Rusher's ranch at Music Meadows lies directly across the valley. She hosts an authentic horseback adventure on her working ranch - we tried it for the first time in the summer of 2010, and had a blast!

Westcliffe is 10 miles to the north, with a quaint downtown featuring unique eateries, shops, and festivities. It was once the third largest town in Colorado, in contention for the capital. Now, a little over 500 friendly people call it home.

For pilots, the adjacent airport C08 offers self-serve 100LL fuel, and the use of our 60 x 50 hangar with a 4 x 4 Suburban for transportation.

Call or email - we'll help you plan a custom vacation!
