Property description

LA PLATA MOUNTAINS CABIN -
ENJOY THE CHARM THAT ONLY A LOG CABIN CAN GIVE in this cozy quiet 2-bedroom vacation rental plus an additional bunkhouse to accommodate larger parties. Perfect for a romantic secluded getaway or you can bring the whole family. The children will love finding the board games and puzzles. When they tire of being indoors they have 3 acres of forest to play and wander on where they can let their imaginations fly.
Get a refreshing night's sleep in the new comfortable queen bed. Also find two twin beds in the 2nd bedroom and additional new double bed and twin bunk beds for 4 more people in the nearby bunkhouse. The bunkhouse is freshly remodeled throughout and has its own new bathroom, kitchenette and covered deck. It is also listed separately (see VRBO listing #844811).

COMFORT AND AMBIANCE - you can feel the warmth of the wood burning stove and see the beauty of the dancing flames through the glass window. Due to the new clearstory windows located at the top of the exposed beam ceiling natural sunlight fills each room with daytime brightness and sparkle. The shade of the pine trees always keeps the temperature in the cabin perfect.

BEAUTY AND CLEANLINESS - Find everything you need in the full kitchen to prepare your favorite meals. Dine on the pine kitchen table or out on the shaded porch. The bathroom has recently been remodeled, new entry addition and the owner has refinished most of the woodwork throughout the cabin and added many unique handcrafted touches. For your convenience find a washer and dryer. Linens are provided. Watch the new flat screen television, enjoy movies or listen to music with the cabin's new digital surround-sound system.
This cabin is comfortable, very clean, full of natural light from the many windows, has simple tasteful decorating and is well-maintained. While relaxing on the shaded porch watch the deer and the birds and see the sunset over Mesa Verde in the distance.
At an elevation of 7,820 feet the shade of the tall pines makes for cool evenings and comfortable days. The cabin is nestled on 3 forested acres of Ponderosa Pines and Gambel's Oak in beautiful Echo Basin, in the foothills of the La Plata Range of the San Juan Mountains. It is conveniently located right off a paved country road yet affords easy access to the boundary of the San Juan National Forest which is only a mile away.
This vacation rental is the perfect headquarters for the outdoor enthusiast or the sightseeing traveler.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We moved to the mountains of Colorado in 1974, fell in love with all it has to offer and have made it our cherished home. Here we raised our two children who are amazing young adults now. Over the years we built our house, 2-story garage with guest room and barn and have treated the land with care. Skiing, hiking, gardening, raising our own beef, landscaping the property and enjoying our dog and cat keep life interesting. To that we add traveling both afar and near with all the variety that is in the Four Corners. Yes, we find time to pursue our careers. Rollin is a self-employed consulting geologist and Robin is an educator.

Why the Owner Chose Mancos, CO, USA:
We purchased the cabin in fall 2010 from our friend George and his family who used it as a vacation getaway . George and his wife Margaret built this log cabin at the same time we created our home so we had a lot in common and enjoyed seeing them when they or their family members came to get away from it all. Since buying the cabin we have been working hard and having fun getting it ready to be a vacation rental. Much refinishing and insulating to make it winter worthy. In 2015 we remodeled the one room bunkhouse and added a bathroom, kitchenette and deck, turning it into a compact uniquely crafted 2nd cabin. We live just a short walk away and enjoy offering this comfortable vacation property for your next get away into nature. We are located in beautiful Echo Basin by the entrance of the San Juan National Forest with the Echo Basin Loop Drive. We are a five mile drive from Mancos, Colorado with nearby Mesa Verde National Park, Ute Mountain Tribal Park and so many other exciting and interesting destinations.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We love to relax on the shaded porch with a cool drink while watching the deer, listening to the birdsong and watching a gorgeous sunset. In the fall the aspen and Gambel oak trees in the area afford an amazing color show. Whether you are in the area for outdoor sports activities, sightseeing or just relaxing, the cabin is a great place to stay.
