Intro: My name is Joel and I'm from Austin, Texas. Growing up I really enjoyed boy scout camping trips and now as an adult I'm trying to get back in touch with my roots. I'm collecting gear and camping at every opportunity.
What a place! The pictures and description of Long View Lodge were more than accurate, but the actual experience goes above and beyond. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by our hosts, Will and Nancy. They provided so many conveniences for our stay that made relaxing come easy. The house was extremely comfortable and surprisingly spacious.
Hiking options around the cabin were abundant. We ventured down to a meadow that provided a breathtaking view of the mountains nearby. At one point we found ourselves in a small grove of Aspen trees that felt like small secret oasis among the Pines.
Another great thing about the cabin was the isolation. Whether it was day or night we really felt like we were the only two people around for miles, but we also knew if we needed anything it was only a short drive into town.
We will definitely be back to Long View Lodge some day.
