Our home is on the quintessential biking route....from the minute March hits you find road / mtn bikers pumping up and down the hill, riding one of many loops. Stay at our cabin and you start near the top and you end with the uphill.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Nina and Jess are creative outdoor people. Jess is an architect...Nina is a papermaker....we both are hands on builders....we both teach skiing and are very involved parents. We have 2 kids, 4 dogs, 3 horses, 3 cats and lots of projects. We love our property and are happy to share it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Missouri Heights, Carbondale, CO, USA:
Before we had kids, we looked for a forever home, someplace where we could enjoy all of our passions, that had a restfulness and soul. We saw an ad in the paper and everything else stopped.....we knew the property and knew we wanted it. When we bought it, there were 2 cabins from the early 1900's, very rustic and old. Now the main home has a modern addition surrounding the original old cabin and the second cabin recently burned in an unexplained fire...hence the new cabin. We are surrounded by neighboring hay pastures, fields of sagebrush and 360 degree mountain views. We are always working on our property, gardening and making improvements. Seems the DIY style of living is our destiny.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We call this rental home 'The Cabin' as it replaced an old cow barn that had been modified to be a residential cabin before we bought the property. Missouri Heights can be windy in the spring so Jess designed this building to have no eaves on the west face, in corten steel. As you walk around the cabin, it changes to slats of cedar with gaps meant to resemble the old chinked log design. As the cedar ages, it will go driftwood grey. The interior layout is very similar to the original cabin, with a lofted bedroom over the kitchen area and an open-to-below view of the living room. The design is spare, simple and highly functional. For a small 2 bedroom cabin, everyone who walks in says 'I could live here!'
