About this listing
If you have been dreaming of staying at a picturesque wilderness log cabin with end of the road privacy and spectacular mountain scenery, this is the place.
Environmentally 'green' with a very small carbon footprint running on solar and wind power.
This is a hand scribed Scandinavian log cabin. Lots of wood!
The cabin runs on solar and wind power. It is off the grid. You need to monitor the power use. There is a gauge in the kitchen. It is heated by a gas forced air furnace and the fireplace too.
There are mountain bikes. Bow and arrows, BB guns for the kids. Ping pong table.
Interaction with Guests
You can contact me by cell phone. Cell phones have good reception here.
You are out in the wild, yet it is 20 minutes to Ridgway, the nearest town. There is fishing and rafting in the San Miguel and Uncompaghre rivers, nearby.
The cabin sits off the Last Dollar Road. An old stage coach path to Telluride. It is very scenic and driveable with a high clearance 2 wheel drive vehicle. Aspen groves and mountain vistas abound.
Other Things to Note
Lots of animals come right up to the cabin if you are quiet. Don't be surprised to see deer, elk, bobcats, porcupines, turkey, eagles, hummingbirds, and coyotes.
Please treat our home like you would your home. We love this place, and love to share it with others. No smoking, no pets.
This cabin is nothing short of perfect. It was larger than we expected and more beautiful than the photographs portray. We were two families sharing, nine people all together, four adults and five children ages seventeen down to seven. We made a day trip to Mesa Verde and a trip to Telluride which were both completely doable and very enjoyable, but mostly we just wanted to stay put and enjoy the serenity of the setting and the comfort of the cabin. We loved sitting on the deck and watching the hummingbirds that hovered and dove right above the deck. We roasted marshmallows in the evening, cooked large meals in the kitchen, rested and laughed an awful lot. A lot of time was spent sitting in the sunroom just watching the beautiful expanse visible from that room. My boys identified plants, bird watched and went for long walks. It was idyllic.
