Relax in the woods
I have been staying in Westcliffe 2 months out of the year since 2006. I have always wanted to stay at this cabin, but it was more than my wife and I needed for ourselves. This year, I took the entire family (6 to 75) and we all enjoyed the place. Right next to the hiking trails, yet close enough to town if you needed something. If you want to relax and be free of the Internet, then this place will fit your needs. I do have a wife with disabilities, so the cabin can be challenging in that regard, but it is doable.
This house was perfect for what we wanted! The location to the Rainbow Trail is ideal for hiking. We really enjoyed the stream behind the house, very relaxing sounds!
We are located 1/4 mile from the Venable and Comanche trail head. Beautiful mountain trails following the streams. The Alpine Lodge and Restaurant are at the end of the road just 5 minutes away (excellent dining with a view of the valley)
