Property description

PLEASE NOTE: This property is for sale and we now have instated a 60 day cancellation notice in the event of sale.
This cabin cannot be used as a base for hunting. No hunting is allowed in the subdivision.
Please check our calendar before contacting us. We keep it current. We prefer that you email us first. That sets up a thread and we can refer back to it as often as necessary. That way we don't confuse your request with someone else's. Feel free to call after that if you have some question that you think can't be answered to your satisfaction by email. We operate using cash or checks only. For additional questions, read on. I have covered almost all questions you may have, so please take the time to read the following. Thanks


There is a master bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a second bedroom with 2 twin beds down the hall. We have a couch that unfolds like a futon which can accommodate 1 person. There is a roll away available, but it is small. The bathroom has a jetted tub and a double flush toilet. It's still a cabin, but is updated for more comfort. Please be aware that the dog door is out of operation at this time. There is a fenced dog yard where you could keep your dog for short periods of time; however, we do not guarantee that your dog will not escape!

In winter, fall, and spring the wood burning stove makes the cabin very toasty warm, though there are other heat sources too. The kitchen has a dishwasher. There is a small dining room table and the bar has 3 stools. There is a small refrigerator/freezer without icemaker, an electric range, toaster, coffee maker, stereo, DVD player, TV (no cable or satellite) for watching DVDs, a ROKU box, Wi-Fi, gas grill, and in the summer, hummingbird feeders. There is a washer/dryer. We provide: coffee filters, paper towel, tp, dish soap, dishwasher soap, clothing detergent, hand soap (bathroom), propane, spices, linens, towels, and wood for the stove. We ask that you recycle 1 & 2 plastic, magazines, white paper, aluminum cans, steel cans, cardboard. Glass cannot be recycled here in the valley. If you live in Denver you could take it home for recycling. There is a dumpster near the front of the subdivision where you can leave your trash.

This cozy cabin is located in the spectacular San Luis Valley in South Central Colorado just 5 miles south of the Great Sand Dunes National Park. Located 1500 feet above the valley floor (at 9000 feet) the cabin and large deck have 360 degree view of 14,000 ft. peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Range, an expansive view of the vast San Luis Valley including the far off San Juan Mountains and the Great Sand Dunes National Park. If you are looking for unequaled quiet, wildlife, (eg. bears, elk, antelope, deer, bobcats, coyotes etc.), amazing views and walking/hiking, this is the place for you - spring, summer, fall or winter. There is great hiking right outside the cabin door. We leave directions for a terrific hike to Zapata Falls (the back way!) Spring, summer and fall brings us four kinds of hummingbirds not to mention many other songbirds and raptors. We are dog friendly with just a few common sense rules.

Other attractions nearby include: Rail tours on the Toltec-Cumbres Pass Railroad & Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, Old Ft. Garland, San Luis Stations of the Cross, The Gator Farm, numerous cultural heritage sites and museums, hiking trails, bird watching, Greater Sandhill Cranes (Mar-Apr, Oct-Nov), summer farmers' market (Saturdays starting in July 8am-1pm), local festivals, and rock climbing or hiking at Penitente (a famous climbing area with beautiful rock formations). A natural hot springs pool, The Sand Dunes Pool, is within a 30 minute drive. The Pool features a large 'hot tub temperature' pool and a somewhat cooler very large swimming pool (no chlorine) with deep end and diving boards, baby pool, and small restaurant that features organic tomatoes and basil grown in their own greenhouse. The SDPool now offers a wonderful adults only area including a bar. You may eat there whether or not you choose to swim. Google them for detailed information. Joyful Journey is a spa located about 1 hour north just south of the intersection of 285 and 17. They offer massage and several natural pools. Valley View (clothing optional ) is located east of Joyful Journey. They are located near a large bat cave where you can observe the bats emerge in the summer evenings. (The Orient Mine). In the summer Splashland near Alamosa provides a terrific outdoor pool with slide and diving board.

San Luis Valley Regional Airport airport is located in Alamosa (35 minutes away) and has daily connections to Denver.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

Why Alamosa:
I chose Zapata because of the unique valley bordered by two mountain ranges that provide a range of outdoor activities. The Great Sand Dunes National Park is right next door and numerous hot springs allow for a good soak after a long day of outdoor activities.
