Classic solid stone cabin overlooking the meadow which is an ancient peat fen. A small spring originates on the property which leads to a quiet garden occupied by elk in the spring and fall. Hike/mountain bike or drive from the property to mammoth reservoir to fly fish or 4wheel drive to countless jeep roads to over 11,000 feet on the continental divide.

Peaceful stay at the stone cabin
My wife and I stayed two nights at the stone cabin and loved it! We thought that being somewhat close to the front range area we might encounter more people in the vicinity of the cabin but we were pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was even on a nice summer weekend. Robby was great at communicating prior to our visit about directions (gave us a couple of routes depending on vehicle clearance) and had clear instructions on how to enter the property/cabin. The amenities were as advertised and felt they met our expectations.
We did notice that if you don't have the fireplace going (it was warm both nights) and the window closed that there is condensation that forms on the ceiling and can drip down on you during the night. It wasn't a big deal and was solved by keeping the window open the following night and probably wouldn't be a problem if you had a fire.
Overall, it was a great getaway for us, and would definitely stay at the Stone Cabin again!
Great host - weather prevented trip
There were rain storms, and we weren't able to make it up the road to the location, but the surrounding area was beautiful. We hope to try again one day. Robby was so incredibly kind and thoughtful, working with us for our wedding plans, and offering suggestions to accommodate. Great communication. We will have to try booking for our anniversary (or sooner) if/when the weather is better.
Magical stone cabin on the edge of a magnificent meadow! Stunning place to curl up and observe a storm. Also a great place for testing out our new camp gear and teaching a little kid the ways of outdoor living (we brought a 6 year old). Nice to drop a tent and have an indoor cabin at your disposal. Road up there was INTENSE with rocks and drops galore so please do plan ahead and know that you will be on a bumpy ride up. We took a rented Mazda CX-5 (all wheel drive) and made it! But it was definitely an adventure.
NOTE: Save save save all the codes and directions offline or write them down as there is almost no/no cell service depending on your carrier. Also, the messages sent to you from the host by Hipcamp do not always save to your phone! We learned the hard way and almost didn’t get into the cabin.
Thanks so much Robby!
We had a great weekend at this tiny cabin! The property is large so we had no visible neighbors. We woke up to the field full of 40-50 elk. The road is rugged, we were fine in a Nissan Xterra. Most other vehicles were Jeeps or Tacomas, a few trucks.
Views for days!
Beautiful environment! Saw a moose in the morning galloping across the meadow, lovely site building and overall vibe. I think a nice space to chill outside and enjoy the view would be a lovely addition!!
My Mazda CX-5 wasn't able to make it all the way to the cabin due to water pooling on the roads. I can tell it would have been a lovely stay and we will probably try again at another date.
Comfortable spot - weatherproof!
Great place, amazing location! High altitude meadows with an incredible little structure. Took my two boys up knowing that it might be a bit soggy and what we saw was awesome fog and rain broken up by birds and wildlife coming out to say hello. I most definitely plan on returning soon. Just the right amount of bumpy road to make it feel like it was worth having 4WD without too much for my little dudes in the back seat. Comfortable little stone cabin, genius build. Very very fun!
