About the Property

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Attached Unit, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 3-5)

Our retreat has the atmosphere of a high elevation “refuge” in the Alps, with modern amenities and an original design, located right in the Kirkwood valley. Three alcove beds with beautiful views, a comfortable couch, a kitchenette, and a barbecue on the deck, all make for an easy transition into vacation mode. Previous visitors have loved the space and found sleeping in the cedar alcoves incredibly restful. Solar PV panels and tankless water heater lower the environmental cost of maintaining a cabin at 7800 ft.
We also offer the option of an additional bedroom with independent entry and its own full bathroom. The bedroom is furnished with a queen bed and its own television. Check our own website for photo and additional details (click on active hyperlink below the Rates section on this page or google 'Tynej').
The retreat is child safe and family friendly. It comes with a collection of children’s books, puzzles, board games and movies. While it can sleep six people in the three double beds, size wise it is ideal for families or groups of three or four people.During ski season, you can cross-country ski and snow shoe right off the deck or have the shuttle take you to downhill ski lifts a few minutes away. In the summer, simply hike out to the adjacent national forest or any of the surrounding lakes. It is a beautiful place to stay in a beautiful valley.
