Property description

NOT OPEN IN THE WINTER! Summer only due to road access.

There are not many other places where you can get this immersed in the peace and quiet of nature, and fully appreciate the gorgeous scenery of the Rocky Mountains. Nestled in the breathtaking San Juan range, this A-frame cabin is the ultimate relaxing getaway, while also perfectly comfortable with all the amenities. It sleeps up to 9, with three bedrooms and a pull out couch, but still has a cozy feel. Perfect for families looking for a Colorado adventure, group reunions, or couples looking for a quiet getaway. Silverton is a 10-15 minute drive away.

This cabin is secluded, and meant as a retreat for you to truly get away and unwind. We don't have wi-fi there. It also doesn't have cell reception (You can get cell service once you get to the main road on the way back to town - about 3 min drive from the cabin). The cabin does have all the other amenities: full kitchen, washer / dryer, phone, propane stove for heat. There is standard electricity and a house phone for emergencies. Three different porches are great places to hang-out, read a book, sit in a hammock, and appreciate the views.

It's also surrounded by many artifacts of the mining era -- an old miners cabin, in excellent condition is down the road. Several other abandoned mines are scattered throughout the area, giving the cabin an unparalleled back-woods feel.

Layout:
Bottom floor has main living areas, master bedroom (king bed) and full bath. The cabin has an open kitchen, large windows in the living room and a pull out couch. Top floor has 2 bedrooms (each has 2 single beds), a second full bath and a small hang-out area.

Access:
The cabin is located on a dirt road -- that means cars with high clearances are encouraged for easier driving; however we've gone there many times in a prius. The cabin has a very, very steep driveway. ONLY cars with 4 wheel drive and a high clearance should go up the driveway. If you have a standard car, we usually park on the road and walk up the driveway (about 200 feet).

Dogs:
We welcome WELL-BEHAVED and HOUSE-TRAINED dogs that will have a minimal impact on the cabin. We'd like to keep it open to dogs so please clean up after your dog. There is a $20 / night pet fee.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We're the Schiller family -- originally from Wisconsin, and now living in Colorado, we purchased this cabin to to retreat and unwind in the outdoors, and to spend time with our kids and grandkids. It's given us many wonderful memories exploring the woods and mines, Jeeping to alpine lakes, hiking, and just sitting and relaxing in a hammock on the porch. We've also used it for large gatherings for friends and family -- a long kitchen table serves the perfect gathering spot for meals and games.

Why the Owner Chose Silverton, CO, USA:
This is a truly unique part of Colorado, and one of the most stunning mountain ranges in Colorado. The cabin is surrounded by a relics of the mining era, when this region was used for silver mining. That has left many abandoned mines, old miners cabins, and other artifacts that make for some awesome exploring. The Old Hundred Gold mine is down the road and gives daily tours of an former gold and silver mind -- you travel back into the heart of the mountain in a mining car and see the tunnels where miners worked.... awesome experience.
