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 8, 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. IT DOES NOT HAVE WIFI OR CELL RECEPTION. (Cell service you get about 3 min drive toward town; Wifi available in town.) It has all amenities: washer / dryer, dishwasher, potable water, 2 showers with full bath, propane heat (as well as electric space heaters) and a landline phone. 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.
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.
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).
We welcome 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.
Note - Due to snow and road closures the cabin is closed for winter from mid- October to June.
