The "Nest" is on top of a moraine at 9000 feet in elevation. Routt National Forest and the Zirkel Wilderness is a short distant away. The cabin has spectacular views and seclusion. If you are looking for a tranquil place to un-plug this is it. The area is abundant with wildlife, moose, elk, deer, pronghorn, eagles, hawks, owls, fox, marmot, squirrel and bear to name a few. Recreational opportunities abound from hiking, fishing, off road, wildlife viewing, skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and of course watching the stars in an unpolluted night sky. From the alpine flowers of spring and summer, the colors of fall in the aspens and the snowy wonderland of winter this is the ideal home base. The bathroom listed is a compost potty house a short walk from the cabin. The kitchen is fully equipped, the sink plumbed for grey water disposal and we supply your potable water. We also supply your firewood both for your wood burning stove inside. We supply the linens and towels. The shower house is a short distance from the cabin. Our directions here are best to use as other methods aren't reliable.

About Deb McLachlan
We are 22 West. Eli and Pat are 6th generation and Deb is 5th from a long line of Irish immigrants and brave, stubborn, hard working ranchers. Our land was generously gifted from the kindest, hardest little working woman, Sarah Iris Irvine, whose desire was to keep this land in our family at a huge sacrifice to her. Our rentals also help to support North Park Wildlife Rehabilitation. Deb cares for injured and orphaned wildlife in Jackson, Routt and Grand counties.
Deb McLachlan purchased this Cabin in 1920
Why Deb McLachlan chose Jackson County
22 West is located 18 miles southwest of Walden, CO along the Park Range, Routt National Forest and the Zirkel Wilderness. Deb and her mom Sarah Iris were both born here in the old homestead which can be seen from the cabin. This is home, where our roots run deep.
What makes this Cabin unique
We manage 130 acres of pristine, mountainous, property all within a short distance of many recreational opportunities. We offer remote, secluded, comfy cabins with a shower house.

Gorgeous fall getaway!
This was an amazing place to see the fall colors. The aspen were all lit up in shades of red, orange, and yellow. A fox came around the cabin three different times, and we saw deer and two moose. Deb was very helpful and gracious. Highly recommend!
Too Much Effort Required, No Ammenitites
The stove was very old and did not function properly.
The toilet facility is a very dated outhouse, does not suit girls.
You need 4x4 to get up the road to the cabin.
Overall, this was not easy to find.
The lady who runs the property is extremely helpful and went out of her way to look out for us. We are into a more comfortable camping experience an will not rent this property again.
We are sorry you didn’t enjoy the space. It is obvious you didn’t know what you were booking. This is a cabin surrounded by mountainous terrain. No one has had trouble driving to the cabin. The guests now are in a Kia Soul.
Unique experience and amazing view
This was one of the most unique accommodations we have experienced. Deb was a good hostess and a truly good person. The place is nice but quite rustic. The quietness and wildness we appreciated the most.
Beautiful, comfortable, great host
Beautiful, comfortable & clean. Very friendly & gracious host. Cozy place. Beautiful views of amazing scenery.
Peaceful-Glorious Birds and Stars
Deb who owns the property is a gracious loving person. I truly enjoyed being 20 miles off the nearest paved road and living simply for a few days. Deb my hostess, brought the water supply daily and I loved how she rescued injured wildlife. Her house and the cabin were surrounded by feeders and many Hummingbirds. A large quanset type structure was a huge bird cage where a Great Heron and an Osprey were under her care. In a smaller pen were a rescued Otter and in another some baby ducks. I am 76 and disabled yet hiked as far as I could and when I enjoyed my shower in the 'Shower house" Deb drove me back to the cabin. A perfect antidote for city stress. The cabin is on top of a hill (must climb to appreciate) at 9000 ft. Simple and spotless. Deb and her family are warm and welcoming.
It was great, our family really enjoyed it, the rivers and the views unforgettable. It was peaceful
We when hiking and it was beautiful all the way
Routt National Forest and the Zirkel Wilderness are just up the road. The Delaney Butte Lakes and Roaring Fork and Platte Rivers are close by. Buffalo Pass, for superb snowmobiling is a short distant away.
