The original cabin from the first settlers of this land is very cute and quaint. It has been slightly renovated, removing the second floor to create high ceilings with wood beams and ceiling fan.

The original cabin from the first settlers of this land is very cute and quaint. It has been slightly renovated, removing the second floor to create high ceilings with wood beams and ceiling fan. It has one of the best views of the valley with a pretty large outdoor area complete with grill, picnic table and outhouse.

Electricity has been added as well. A small, college-style fridge, toaster oven, microwave and hot plate are available alongside a small kitchen table.

The queen sized mattress is super comfy. There is also a single pull-out couch and a wood-burning stove.

Bookings are only recommended from April-September because it is very drafty with the original doors and windows. We are also ten miles down a scenic dirt road that can be muddy during snow season. However, if you are aware of these things and want to book anyway, we are happy to have you.

Most people come to our ranch to visit Mesa Verde or the train from Durango to Silverton. I expect the majority of bookings for this cabin will be people who are more interested in getting away to stare at the stars, watch the birds and take long walks.

There is sleeping for three indoors, but you may bring a tent and up to three additional campers.

This spot was the perfect blend of simple creature comforts, the traditional camping experience, and Colorado history. The cabin itself is an adorable piece of history, while also providing those little things that make camping so much easier: shelter from the weather, a basic kitchenette setup, and a comfy bed off the ground. Outside the cabin was well furnished with a picnic table and benches, comfortable chairs, and a fire pit. The level ground is also perfect for setting up a tent if part of your group decides to stay outside. We enjoyed cooking over the fire, but loved that we had the option to cook a wider variety of foods because of the kitchenette. And for those of us that don't enjoy doing our business in nature, the outhouse is a welcome addition to the camping experience!

Out the backdoor to the fire pit, a perfect place to hang out and cook.Love a comfy bed while camping!The outhouse makes camping a lot easier.Sitting around the fire pit was a great way to relax.
