Fantastic mountain cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed twice at Explorer's Rest and have loved it both times. It's such a comfortable, cozy, clean cabin! We enjoyed the peaceful view from the front porch and had lots of family fun at the fire pit in the evenings. The nights are chilly in July, but they provide plenty of blankets and wood for the fireplace. I highly recommend this cabin for your mountain adventures!

Best vacation EVER !!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is darling ! It has every amenity needed and the setting is beautiful, sights and sounds.

Our favorite activities were driving the Tin Cup Pass in a rented ATV and hiking the many available trails. The Tin Cup Pass took us across the Continental Divide through beautiful country to a great town and a yummy lunch at Frenchy's. Whether you're looking for a nature's stroll or a rigorous, adventurous hike, access to these trails are within walking distance from the cabin.

St. Elmo ghost town draws tourists, but are day seekers. They make for good people watching, but in no way intrude on the sanctuary of the cabin. The locals who run the town are lovely and at the end of the trip we felt like we said good bye to friends.

We brought our dogs who had a great time as well !! What luck to have found such a beautiful, fun place that takes our pets !!!!

Without a doubt we will return and recommend to family and friends!!

p.s. (If driving the long haul from the south we discovered the Best Western in Clayton NM, very pet friendly and has a great breakfast !)
