Paintbrush Cabin is a comfortable and spacious rustic cabin nestled into the mountainside. Three Crosses trail is just a few steps off the front porch and yields a picturesque view of Mt. Meeker and its valley below for those who choose to ascend it. 

This cabin has a lovely living/dining room area with a fireplace. (Firewood is free & easily available) It is a great place to gather your entire group to dine, play games or sit by the fireplace and read a book. There is also a TV with DVD player. (The TV does not have cable or streaming service options!) 

We have a full kitchen with a full size refrigerator, stove, coffee pot and microwave - all you need to bring is your food and beverages. (Alcohol must be previously approved) There is also a grill and picnic table on the front porch for a cookout.

Multiple bedrooms, with varying bed options, give you a variety of ways to divide out your group. And, there are two bathrooms with showers. Highlands' property, on which Paintbrush Cabin is located, is extensive and offers many hiking trails and scenic viewpoints.

--Cell service is not available in the mountains but there is a telephone available in the main Retreat Center for guest use. The Retreat Center is located approximately 750 ft (3 city blocks) from the lodge.

--WiFi is available in our main Retreat Center, not within Paintbrush Cabin.

    Very spacious cabin in a beautiful setting! It was very cold during our visit but the heated cabin remained cozy inside. We communicated with Sue several times prior to our visit and she also greeted us at the front deck when we checked in. She is wonderful, highly responsive, and one of the reason we rated our stay so high. The only drawbacks concerned the listed which stated the cabin had wifi (it does not; instead the wifi is available only at the office which is about 300 yards away). Additionally there is no cell phone signal at the cabin. So, essentially you are in full disconnected mode barring a satellite phone or mobile hotspot. One of the bedrooms had no electrical outlets, which made it unusable for us since we had a few items that we needed to plugin in the bedroom. Fortunately, there were two other bedrooms to choose from, one of which had an outlet that we could use. I know this organization is new to the online booking systems and are working out some kinks, so I'm not going to grade them too hard on these items. Overall, it was a very nice stay and we enjoyed ourselves. We would go back for sure...maybe in the summer when we could enjoy the sprawling property and trails more.
