Fresh clean mountain air. No people. Get away to the quiet beauty of your private wooded cabin. Enjoy a campfire, amazing mountain views, and killer hiking right out your cabin door. Spend an amazing night with millions of stars overhead. Recharge your soul in silent mountain peace. A rare opportunity to stay tucked in private woods and steps from 1000s of acres of national forest. With current health concerns in the world, we are renting either this Artist's Cabin or the Hawks Nest cabin for any given night (unless related groups are renting both). This insures a private no contact experience for those wishing to truly get away. Featuring dual heaters, sleeping loft, outdoor cooking area, solar, and indoor camp toilet facilities, this is luxury glamping

Spend an unforgettable night watching millions of stars in the crisp clean mountain air.  Feel yourself relax and recharge as you enjoy the woods and the stunning mountain views.    *****If you are having any difficulty booking, please message me and I will respond immediately. We have had several guests report problems with the booking process which we were about to fix right away. *** A rare opportunity to stay in a rustic and glamorous artist's cabin backing to thousands of acres of national forest and tucked into 12 acres of private woods. Part of the owners' estate, the cabin features a sitting/dining area, sleeping loft and private outdoor cooking and dining area. The cabin is furnished with many of the pieces from the Lost Creek Cabin Studio and features solar electricity and indoor camp toilet facilities. Fresh water is provided. The artist's retreat is a luxury glamping cabin.

We have pets and love them.  Most of our guests do as well so we are happy for you to bring your furries along for the fun.  We ask that dogs be on leash and under voice control.  (There is a $10/pet/night fee.)

As long as there is no fire ban, you are welcome to enjoy a campfire in the outdoor fireplace.  We require guests to diligently tend their fire and completely extinguish the campfire when guests are not near.  There is firewood to gather on the property and we have firewood for purchase as well.  We do not allow guests to bring in firewood as the area has begun to see invasive species of insects and we do not want to contribute to this potentially devastating situation.  

Our second studio: the Hawk's Nest is now available!  This is a companion studio to the Rustic Glamorous Artist's Studio and available for families who need more room or two couples that want to experience nature together. Send us a note to reserve your spaces for that unforgettable mountain getaway!

This place was perfect. Its a sweet little getaway nestled in the pine trees. The cabin was comfortable and warm, and still felt like a true outdoors experience. We cooked our dinner over the outdoor stove that was great to use and the flame was easy to control to simmer our dish without burning it. The cabin is true to its name in that its an "artist cabin", there were sculptures hung on the walls which gave the place an authentic touch. The hosts of this sweet cabin are incredibly friendly and attentive, and quickly made themselves available if we needed it! Truly a unique and wonderful experience. I HIGHLY recommend this place!!

The cabin is tucked away in the pine treesPlenty of trees to hang a hammock and enjoy the view!Outdoor kitchen areaSweet bar stocked with all the kitchen utensils

What an incredible spot! Deb and AJ are gracious, accommodating Hosts who go above and beyond and made our stay so wonderful. The space itself is cozy, well decorated and clean, surrounded by endless wilderness at your doorstep. Everything we needed was provided -- from cookware to firewood, water, etc. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Will definitely be back in the future!

This was the perfect little getaway spot! Upon arrival there was a super cute chalk board with our names (& dogs names), such a sweet little touch!

Deborah and AJ greeted us and gave us a whole rundown of everything. The stove outside was super easy to use and the heater inside the cabin was plenty for the cold nights. We had two dogs with us who had a great time and lots of space to run around! The bed in the loft was very comfortable!

I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

We loved our one night stay at this sweet, little cabin. Everything was clean, tasteful, and comfy. Deb and AJ are wonderful hosts, and made us feel welcome and right at home, while also letting us enjoy our privacy. There are great places to hike right out the door with nice views. We enjoyed dinner on the patio, and lost count of all the stars we could see. The best part: we got all of this within an hour's drive of the Front Range.

Perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and watch for shooting stars. Adorable little cabin.Stroll through the neighborhood.

Staying at the cabin and meeting Deborah and AJ was a wonderful experience. There are ample cooking supplies provided, the hut was very warm with the powered heater (despite cold temperatures the night we were staying), and the bed was spacious and comfortable. We loved Deborah's artwork/sculptures that can be found in and around the cabin. It is such a picturesque and relaxing place. Even better, there is a little-known entrance to the national forest trails nearby where we took a beautiful hike. AJ and Deborah will show you the way! The dogs are awesome too, and very friendly. I would recommend this cabin to anyone! The one downside was the fire ban, but that was totally out of Deborah's control.

A true slice of heaven

Deborah has built a small, quaint, charming 'tiny house' on her property. This is the quintessential definition of glamping -- head lamps required, no running water, and 'biffy' bag-like toilet. If you're good with roughing it a bit, this place is for you + one + one small dog.

You'll find big comfortable chairs to sit around a campfire. Clean bedding, kitchenwares, 3-burner propane stove (outside) and 5 gallons of water all provided. Deborah will even wash your dishes after each meal...now that's service!

You are close to Bailey, Grant, Guanella Pass, Pine Junction which provides easy access to other activities and restaurants. The easy access does come with 285 highway noise.

The wall heater struggles to get the place warm and we were there when it was above freezing. It you want a warm place to hunker down during cold nights, you may want to find another place.

Oh and if you feel like shopping, the cabin features Deborah's rustic artwork that is for sale.

We had a great time at the Artist's Cabin!

Meeting the hosts at the artists cabin is worth the trip itself in my opinion. The wonders that lie anywhere from 2 seconds to 10min away are equally amazing. Such a great stay, I will definitely come again and bring company to share the experience. Time well well spent.

This little cabin is the perfect getaway! Deb and her family were so accommodating throughout our stay. Once we arrived, her and her daughter greeted us and gave us a quick tour around the cabin and the area. They even had a welcome sign at the entrance of the property (including our names and our pup's name, so thoughtful). The cabin included cookware, plates, utensils, mugs, trash bags, toilet paper, towels, matches and an outside stove. There's a solar panel out front for electricity and Deb provides water. There's a hike right up the road that has a beautiful wide view of the landscape. At the end of May, the temps were a bit warmer than usual so the cabin was a bit stuffy but by the evening it was perfect. We would definitely visit again! Thank you so much Deb!

Hike just right up the road, perfect at sunset.Outside stove with three burners for cooking.Cute little deck and stairs out back.Solar panel on the cabin for electricity.
