About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 in cabin / additional 6 in the bunkhouse

Rarus Bed and Breakfast is located 3/4 of a mile from the continental divide in San Isabel National Forest on private property. We offer the cabin / bunkhouse for rent from June 1st- October 31st. (We operate the bunkhouse only as a backcountry Bed & Breakfast from Dec 15- April 15th ) It is a 4 1/2 mile trek over snow from St Elmo to get here. Although we are remotely located there is easy access in the summer by 4WD. If you would like to get away from it all, this is the place for your ultimate mountain vacation. June 1st-October 31st there is no other guests other than your party and no innkeeper on site, unless circumstances lend it necessary.

We are located on private land in the middle of San Isabel National Forrest. Very private.. No neighbors. The county road that accesses the property allows ATV's so you don't need to trailer your ATV up the canyon everyday.
