About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Cozy, log cabin situated at 9,500 feet elevation surrounded by aspen and pine trees. If you love the outdoors or just want to get away from it all, this is the place to consider. You'll enjoy having your early morning coffee outdoors and will probably be greeted by the neighborhood deer, snowshoe rabbits, and other wildlife. There is outdoor log furniture and chairs for lounging and the spacious redwood deck has two tables for ample seating. For easy grilling there is a Weber gas grill and the kitchen was just remodeled and is a chef's delight. Ample dishes & cooking ware, spices, new appliances. There is also a restaurant & lounge with a friendly staff which is located approximately one mile from the cabin. We are located in Arrowhead Ranch Mountain Subdivision - is somewhat off the beaten path but has well maintained roads and offers the peace and solitude that we all long for.

There are 3 private lakes in the subdivision, hiking, walking, four wheeling, mountain biking, sightseeing. Blue Mesa Reservoir is approximately 15 miles away, the breathtaking Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Monument is 28 miles away. There are airports in Gunnison and Montrose which are approximately 40 miles each way.

About Mary

I moved to Colorado in 1970, immediately fell in love with the mountains of the most beautiful state in the union. Twenty-seven years later I was able to purchase this small modest cabin which was as much in need of me and I was it. With the help of a friend, it has been a labor of love to totally remodel it into a beautiful, very comfortable & cozy cabin. I am now semi-retired and spend as much time as possible at the cabin. I find peace & contentment in the mountains & I love sharing my cabin with family & friends.

Mary purchased this cabin in 1997

Beautiful and Fairly Remote

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what we wanted- a very nice house that we could call home for a short time.House is very well kept and clean. Very quiet except when my husband put out tons of seed for the Stellars Jays. These are bright blue and noisy. We also had White chinned swifts and countless chipmonks and ground squirrels and a few rabbits and deer. We heard elk in the evening but did not see any. Location conveniant to Black Canyon (Awesome), weather very nice with nights at 60 or so. Coming from Texas where it has been over 100 for the entire summer, this was fabulous. Loved the wildlife!!!

Lovely Cabin in Serene Setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing four night stay in this well appointed cabin that had everything we needed to be comfortable and happy. The big wrap around deck was a joy and our dog and I really enjoyed sitting out there. I liked watching the sunsets and stars from the deck too. The stars were out in heavenly force. My husband enjoyed grilling on the deck and did all of the cooking! The lakes were so beautiful and made for pastoral lunch scenes. We enjoyed Flint Lakes and Hazel Lake as well as the cozy coves and beaches found on the big Blue Mesa reservoir. We loved the aspens and the wildlife, including deer, a red-winged black bird, a frog, squirrels and neon blue dragonflies a plenty! Thanks so much for the wonderful vacation. The Many's

Truly Peaceful & Serene Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I SO enjoyed our week long stay in this cozy, home like cabin. The wooded surroundings made for an idyllic stay in the mountains of Colorado. The fall colors were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Made for perfect pictures.

We were able to explore the Black Canyon of Gunnison, The Arches Nat'l Park in Utah (although be it a VERY LONG DAY!), a hike to & from Evergreen Lake several times, Pine Creek Trail, and rediscovering Ridgeway & Ouray as well. With shopping in between too! It all made for a wonderful vacation away from the city and the heat of Texas.

We look forward to returning again & again! And being that its pet friendly is a huge factor for us as well.

Thank you for the wonderful welcome & hospitality!

Beautiful cabin in the woods.. I loved the white trees and the quietness. The cabin was decorated well, fully equipped, and clean! We had such an amazing time! We hiked around the cabin and found amazing views of the snow topped mountains in the distance. We highly recommended this place!

Takes your breath away!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the beauty we observed while we were there. Our family (2 adults and 3 children) enjoyed a weeks stay here at a beautiful home away from home cabin. There were a few different areas to fish and we enjoyed daily walks. We could not have asked for anything better. We had a gorgeous doe that came right up to the deck each morning, making my morning coffee more enjoyable. We saw mule deer close by and there were several other critters that would come up close. There was a local restaurant on the "property" where the locals made everyone feel welcome!!!

We took several day trips that were close and enjoyed every minute of our adventures. We could have asked for nothing more! Being a great home away from home it seemed to go way to quick! We would come back again and highly recommend contacting the owner to schedule your next vacation. (We're just sorry it took us so long to write a review...) It was nice to disconnect from our busy schedules, spotty cell service but well worth it! Oh...and don't forget, pet friendly :) Even our four-legged children enjoyed!

My wife and I as well as another couple and their two sons spent a week at the cabin and hated having to leave!! The cabin is very well equipped, clean and comfortable. We were able to ride our ATV's from the property into the NF and enjoyed some great fly fishing in the NF. The cabin has a very secluded feel to it and the weather was fantastic. We saw deer in the yard and elk in the area. If you like the outdoors and the cool mountain air this is a wonderful place to be in August!!
