What’s not to love about the cozy bunkhouse outside Livermore, Colorado. The solitude and peace that overcomes you as you looks out over the land from the bunkhouse is the main reason to come here. The bunkhouse is the second reason. It’s well built and sturdy and could definitely handle whatever Mother Nature has to offer. It’s cozy, but the high ceiling with the large loft above makes it appear much bigger inside. The loft is actually a good size, a queen size bed can fit easily. I'm 6ft and could stand up straight in the middle of the loft. The rustic cozy feel is achieved by the reclaimed and reused weathered wood that makes up the interior walls throughout the bunkhouse and is set off by a large rusty metal ranch sign that spans the entire length. The bunkhouse has multiple windows on 3 sides, so plenty of light fills the space from sunrise to sunset. Each window has a different view of the stunning landscape outside, on many occasions I’d catch myself just staring off into the beauty.
Georgette, the host was great about communicating with me and had spot on directions to the bunkhouse. She did warn me ahead of time that the dirt road to the place gets bumpy (I would recommend high clearance vehicles, especially if the weather is bad). It was slow going on the county road up to the bunkhouse, but the scenery did not disappoint with views of massive rock formations, mountain visas, rolling farm and ranch lands. Once you arrived and drove up the path to the bunkhouse, you knew that the bumpy dirt road was well worth it. Five gallons of water and plenty of fire wood was provided. While I was there the wildflowers were all in full bloom and a bit overgrown around the bunkhouse and fire ring. Again, this is a dry cabin so you need to plan to bring everything you will need and to pack in it/out and leave it better. This is the perfect getaway from the busy city and the ultimate car camping road trip!
This is a great place to get away from it all and just breathe in the mountain air. I give it the highest reviews!
I'm the type that takes my tent with me on my back and just bivouacs when the sun starts going down wherever I am at the time. This trip was with my dog who can't relax in a tent overnight. I was looking for a wooden shack in the middle of nowhere and that's exactly what I got...it was perfect.
I loved the place because it was rustic and the bunkhouse essentially worked as a wooden tent with an excellent (safe) fire pit and spectacular view of the valley. Just remember that "rustic" means that you are on your own out there so you need to bring what you need with you. If you're not the type of person that is ok with hearing critters forage around at night, then maybe stick to a camper or other form of camping. This is a truly beautiful site with the perfect setting for someone who wants to get away from it all and get closer to nature. The roof and walls that keep you out of the weather are just a bonus. My dog and I both approve!
Georgette was on top of communication. Unfortunately, we could not find the cabin in the dark. The drive seemed like it would have been a very beautiful place in the daylight but alas, I never got to see it. I'm sure it was lovely.
