Welcome to our log cabin in the picturesque Cucharas River Valley, surrounded by San Isabel National Forest, conveniently off Hiway 12, Scenic Hiway of Legends.
Enjoy the charming towns of Cucharas & La Veta just down the road, play a few rounds at the Grandote Golf Course, designed by Tom Weiskopf, hike numerous mountain trails, fish Bear & Blue Lakes, or put your feet up on the deck and watch the sunset over the valley.
From our snug cabin, recently updated, you will hear the Cucharas River rushing just below the property. We provide a plush full bed with adjoining full bath in bedroom 1, a plush queen bed in bedroom 2, and a plush queen bed and set of bunk beds in the 3rd bedroom, just across from the 2nd full bath. A fully stocked, spacious kitchen, large table for meals & games, beautiful stone fireplace and comfy furniture awaits. A full size washer & dryer are conveniently located between bedrooms.
A flat screen TV with DVD only (no TV service) and video library are provided, as well as puzzles, books and games. Free WiFi is available in Cuchara.
A favorite activity is a 45 minute hike up to the spectacular geological dike formations just behind the cabin, where you'll overlook a secluded valley...take a picnic lunch and a book for a perfect afternoon.
Or take a 10 minute walk into Cuchara, where you'll step back in time. Enjoy live music at the Dog Bar or have an elegant dinner at the Timbers restaurant, play a round of putt putt golf or browse the shops for treasures.
Just across Hiway 12 you'll find trout fishing at Bear and Blue Lakes or just meander the lovely hike between the lakes. Drive up to Cucharas Pass, where the adventurous can hike West Spanish Peak.
A lovely day trip is 2+ hours to Taos for shopping, lunch, more shopping, and back to the cabin by dark. Or experience a ride on the old time Cumbres/Toltec narrow gauge railroad, also on the road to Taos.
Back at the cabin, relax and enjoy the hummingbirds off the deck, the sound of the river, and possibly a bear siting. There will be more to do tomorrow!

Why Janet Balser chose Cuchara
Our family fell in love with this wonderful valley in the 1950's and we are thrilled to now have this mountain getaway. Being from Texas, there's nothing like the cool mountains in the summer. Every visit we discover another treasure in the quaint towns of Cuchara and La Veta, not to mention the woods, streams and lakes. We hope you will too.

Comfortably and Cozy with Fantastic Views
We had the most amazing stay at this cabin in Cuchara. The cabin itself was immaculate, spacious but cozy, and it had everything we could need (and many things we didn't even think of).
The weather during our visit ranged from sunny in the upper 70s to snow and in the low 30s, giving us the opportunity to not only play games and read by the fire but bask in the sun on the gorgeous deck. One of my favorite things to do every morning was to take my oatmeal out on the deck and eat it while listening to the nearby stream and the wind in the trees.
The kitchen is well equipped and allowed us to cook a number of meals with ease. The bedrooms are well-sized and offered plenty of room for us and all of our gear. There is also a virtual library of maps and guides in the cabin that allowed us to plan our hikes and drives in the area. We never ran out of things to do, and even the kids never once said they were bored!
Visiting Cuchara and staying at this cabin was, hands down, one of the best vacations we've ever had. Thanks!
Over all the cabin was fine and we had a great FAMILY TIME.
Cabin is alittle outdated. Needs to be updated for the Price $$$$.
Beds comfortable, bathrooms nice but orange chairs in the living area needs to be replaced, lite over kitchen table not bright enough for doing puzzle or playing games, fire place did not draft like it should of - might need to be check and cleaned? Need to replace you can opener and the oven has seen it's better days.
Perfect Vacation Getaway
Perfect...relaxing...clean...just what was needed for vacation.
