Perfect writing retreat
The Cabin was indeed charming! It was a perfect location for a mini-writing retreat as it is a quiet, serene spot with Greenhorn Trail nearby for a good hiking break. I really appreciated the absence of electronic and wifi distractions. Having to use the outhouse got me up from sitting for too long to stretch my legs and the single burner with a tea kettle was perfect as I constantly had it going for tea. The electric heater stove kept the cabin warm and cozy. Next time, I'll bring my own wash basin and pot as I didn't think to bring them. Kiera was helpful, responsive, and kind.
I'll definitely be doing another writing retreat here!
This location is just what I was looking for. Cozy cabin with a great heater. The bed was really comfy and also a nice couch.
The land that the cabin is on is fenced so my dog could run around and I could relax. Deer are all over this town. So sweet and peaceful. Will definitely be back!
Cozy and cute
Truly charming! The tiny cabin has been thoughtfully restored, and the bed was comfortable. A momma and baby deer roamed closely by. The whistle / roar of the wind in the trees was very peaceful. More seclusion and a closer outhouse would have been nicer though. I would still recommend it to others for sure.
We booked this cabin at the last minute, during our trip to Colorado. We had to change plans because of the wildfire smoke coming from California. Rye was reporting better AQI than where we had originally planned on staying. Initially, we couldn't find the property because we weren't sent the address ahead of time, after booking. The booking description says this would be done, but it wasn't. I suggest you make contact and ask directly to get the information.
The bedding and sofa were very comfortable. We felt safe in the cabin and enjoyed the creature comforts; a convection burner, coffee maker and water dispenser. There were other items on hand that were also nice, such as bug spray and first aid supplies.
Their large dogs ran out to greet us upon arrival, and one of them presents fearful/protective. Just something to be aware of ahead time. The other dogs we're very sweet. They stayed near the owners house and didn't venture much into the cabin lot.
There were hummingbirds and mule deer around. We enjoyed watching them from the front porch.
Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The location is perfect for hosting San Isabel and the surrounding area. The hosts we're friendly.
Beautiful, getaway in solitude
Kiera's cabin was the perfect getaway for our anniversary! 2 acres to let the dog run around while we cooked and listened to silence... what more could you ask for!
What a gem!
The cabin was fantastic! The photos do not do it justice. We were very comfortable. The bed felt like home. Our party was 2 adults and one 6 yr old. Sleeps 3, two in bed and one on the couch. The kitchen is small and tidy. I recommend cooking what you can before you go. There is enough space and kitchen equip to cook/reheat but only small meals. Bring water as Kiera recommends. We used our water bladder outside for washing up. We drove to the Greenhorn Trail head (5min drive). I highly recommend doing this hike (even if it is for a short hike). Take curena verde road to the trail . I think we passed a sign that read dead end but the trail head is at the end of this road. We drove to Blue Lake (1.5 hrs) and caught trout. Lake Isabel is closer (20 min) and a beaut place to be as well. We hope to go back to the cabin to experience it all in the winter.
Thank you for the unforgettable stay!
My daughter and I had a great experience, and we hope to return. The cabin was lovely and comfortable. The land was beautiful and quiet. Kiera, the host, was very responsive. And, finally, my daughter and I loved seeing all the birds and deer on the property.
