Star Cabin Vacation Rental is one of the nicest vacation homes in the area. Less then a mile from the I-25 exit, it sits on a quiet side-street, just two blocks from Main St. Walsenburg. Recently remodeled from floor to ceiling, the house is clean, relaxing, and nicely appointed.
Central heat and air keep it comfortable and three bedrooms and two full bathrooms make it spacious enough to accommodate up to seven vacationers. With a fully equipped kitchen, you can eat in or visit one of the area's restaurants. We welcome well-mannered dogs and there is a fenced back yard for them to stretch their legs. There is plenty of room for RV parking.
About the Area:
Walsenburg is an old mining town established at the confluence of Interstate 25 and Highway 160. Surrounded by pine, pinon and cedar trees, the air is fresh and the views are breathtaking. Rich in history and rustic charm, the town itself offers a variety of places to visit like the Mining Museum just behind the old Courthouse, Walsenburg Wild Waters, Walsenburg Golf Course and Lathrop State Park with hunting, fishing, boating and hiking as well as a visitor center with a visual history of the area going back to prehistoric times. Walsenburg also provides opportunities for shopping with two grocery stores as well as several antique and gift shops on Main St. All these attractions are between half a mile and four miles from the house.
The Highway of Legends is an 82 mile byway starting in Walsenburg that loops around the Spanish Peaks. Follow this panoramic route to discover many of the area's historic and scenic treasures. Five miles off the loop, near La Veta, are two beautiful little lakes surrounded by pine trees, Blue Lake and Bear Lake. Bear Lake is one of the most pristine lakes we have seen in Colorado.
Walsenburg is the hub of many area attractions within 90 miles to the north, south, east and west including Capulin Volcano National Monument to the southeast (rated 2nd in the WORLD for its night sky star viewing), Bent's Old Fort to the east, Great Sand Dunes National Park to the west, Sugarite Canyon State Park to the south, Colorado Gators Reptile Park to the west, several 14ers including Blanca Peak to the west and Lake Pueblo State Park to the north. We have many brochures about the area attractions at the house.
Star Cabin provides a private smoking deck outside where you can enjoy a relaxing moment. Inside the house is completely non-smoking. We have found that this is the best way to accommodate all of our guests.
