About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + 1 bath - sleeps 4

Our 1200 square foot, Log Cabin is nestled 9100 feet high in the Sangre De Christo Mountain range in the south-eastern part of Colorado. It is between Walsenburg and Alamosa on Highway 160, 90 miles north of Taos New Mexico. Many of our renters come from Texas, as this is the closest you can get to Texas and be in the mountains. About a ten hour drive from Dallas. 4-WHEEL DRIVE IS NEEDED FOR WINTER & SPRING ACCESS!!

Forbes Park is a private, gated neighborhood with only 200 homes on 13,000 acres. There is no hunting in the park, so you will find lots of deer, elk, turkey, bears, coyote, beaver, and smaller critters all over. ATV'S AND MOTORCYCLES ARE NOT PERMITTED ON THE GROUNDS. You will have beautiful views of 11,000 foot to 14,000 foot mountains nearby with amazing sunsets.

Our cabin is a non-smoking cabin. It has a comfy queen bed downstairs, and a king bed in the upstairs loft. The log-style furniture is of Aspen and Pine. The spacious kitchen is fully stocked (even with spices, condiments) with gas stove/oven, large refrigerator, microwave, as well as a washer and dryer. Outside, you will enjoy the hot tub on the front porch or beautiful sunsets on the large back deck! In wintertime the woodburning stove keeps the cabin warm while you can watch the Satellite TV or any of over 100 movies on VHS, we also have a TV on the min floor as well as one upstairs with a DVD player!


The park has lots of wildlife, and hiking. There is nearby fishing and hunting. Visit the Sand Dunes National Park, the picturesque towns of LaVeta and Cuchara, Taos, New Mexico, or explore further to historic mining towns such as Creed! Great snow skiing is 90 miles away in Taos (Red River) or 2 hours to Wolf Creek. Or stay in the park for cross-country skiing and sledding.

This is a great get-away for a long weekend or a week or more. Please see our rates below. Contact Kevin or Susan for more details.
