About Terence Thurston

We are a family that lives in Edwards, Colorado. My two boys grew up enjoying this awesome log cabin and exploring the wonders that abound in every direction. We love to spend time outdoors exploring Colorado and enjoying this amazing climate hiking, fishing, rafting, festivals, hot springs, skiing /snowboarding and so much more that this area has to offer. We love the comforts of the cabin combined with the incredible powers of nature that are always evident in this very special place. Perfect for a family or even an artist, author or anyone who wants to work / play / relax in a peaceful mountain setting with the comforts of a cozy, charming log cabin. It's like camping without the tent! We have many wonderful memories of our beloved cabin and we hope you will feel the same.

Terence Thurston purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Terence Thurston chose Hartsel

This is a wonderful getaway from the stresses of modern life. Wildlife abounds - yet you will sleep safely in the comfort of the cabin. The convenient location in the heart of Colorado provides access to numerous recreational opportunities and you will still feel as though you are camping in the remote mountains. The high speed internet is super convenient.

The cabin was custom built and boasts wood and stone floors, granite counters, stainless appliances, comfortable furnishings, washer dryer and jacuzzi bathtub!

Great views

We loved staying at this cabin, it was so peaceful and had great views of the mountains. Not alot to do in this area but just going out driving is spectacular. The cabin is very open and spaceous, very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again if in this area.

Nice cabin retreat

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The cabin had everything we needed to enjoy a quiet few days in the mountains. There are lakes nearby and the fish were huge. We also enjoyed spending time in the towns of Buena Vista and Salida.

Cozy, homey cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our time at this sweet cabin. Close enough to Buena Vista to go in for dinner and a hike along the Arkansas, but far enough away to feel peaceful!
