The Bonnie Belle Cabin is a 1200 square foot, two story, 3 bedroom modern/rustic backcountry style cabin located in the heart of the San Juan Mountains, 15 miles north of Silverton, Colorado on the Alpine Loop. The cabin itself sits at 12,000 feet above sea level in Picayune Gulch overlooking the Animas River headwaters and the historic ghost town of Animas Forks. Your trip to the Bonnie Belle should be looked at as an adventure, and not just a place to lay your head. The views are second to none, and it is truly a one of a kind property with a one of a kind experience. No client is too big or small, and we will cater to any of your special needs, so please just ask. The cabin uses solar power to power lights in every room, a stereo system, kitchen appliances, etc. Kick back and enjoy the mountain views to a crackling fire in the wood stove or from the two large redwood decks. Access in the summer is by 4x4 vehicle, ATV or similar, or by foot. A Subaru or similar all wheel drive vehicle will not make it. You will not be able to tow a trailer to the cabin. Being comfortable driving on mountain 4x4 roads is essential!

About Aaron Dodds
We are a group of 3 friends that purchased the cabin in 2008. Extensive upgrades were made to make this cabin not only enjoyable for us, but for all our clients. We are all very passionate about mountain life and work in related fields within the state of CO.

Why Aaron Dodds chose Silverton
All 3 of us grew up down the road in Durango (approx 60 miles south) and have always enjoyed this area of Colorado. When the property became available it was a no brainer for us.
What makes this Cabin unique
Everything about this place made us fall in love with it. The remoteness and solitude. The views and the wildlife. The activities in the area are endless, both summer and winter, and the cool clean mountain air is always refreshing!

Bonnie Belle cabin - Fantastic!
We had a wonderful time at the cabin! Beautiful views, great weather, and the cabin was just as terrific as we hoped it would be!
The owner was extremely helpful and answered all of our questions quickly and completely.
We are hoping we can stay at the cabin again next year.
Spectacular San Juan Mountains at The Bonnie Belle Cabin
Outstanding!!! My recent stay at the Bonnie Belle Cabin was absolutely perfect in all ways. The owners were very helpful with my inquiry, booking procedures, and all general questions. This very well built cabin is located in a epic location at roughly 12,000 ft. above sea level, high above the tree line with spectacular views of the San Juan Mountains. The Bonnie Belle Cabin comes furnished with everything one could want to use, or need while staying in a remote mountain cabin location. The BB cabin is very comfortable, amazingly quiet, and great for excellent R&R. Daily, deer would visit in the early evening to feed on the eastern knoll from the cabin, both bucks and does. The view of the Animas River Valley and San Juan Mountains are second to none from this prime location. I highly recommend this property to all adventure seekers, couples and families. I enjoyed the stay so much, I am already booking my next trip back to the Bonnie Belle now!!!
