About the Property

Two separate sleeping areas: Double bed and pull out Sofa Double Bed

What a charming log cabin for both long term and short term vacationers/writers/retreatants and scholars on sabbatical. It's nestled in the pinions off the short road that has only 4 other houses on it, so your privacy and quiet is assured.

Not only is it loving furnished for comfort and functionality, but it also sports a steam shower!
There is a double bed with top of the line mattress (and a gel topper) and the pull out sofa bed has a new, latex, non-off-gassing mattress. A restful luxurious night is topped of with 100% Egyptian cotton linens.

The kitchen area offers green, ceramic, non-stick cookware and basic condiments for cooking for your convenience.

There is no shortage on storage with a full on walk in closet, built in cabinets and a small storage shed a few meters from the porch.

Oh! and that South Facing Porch - you can sit out in the winter and cool off in the summer with an unsurpassed view of Mt. Blanca and the southern valley.

The large picture window faces the Sangres range of the Rocky Mtns. and this is the view you awaken to each morning.

What you see in the pics is exactly what you get.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
For a studio, it's quite large and therefore versatile, especially with the two separate sleeping areas and the large walk-in closet that can keep traveling gear out of the way. Quiet and Private are operative words to describe the intangible aspects and attention to views and aesthetics make it a place where guests want to return again and again.
