Argyle AFrame is a remote, off grid cabin in the mountains of Utah, just 2-hours from Salt Lake City.  Situated on 20 acres and surrounded by tall pines and aspens, Argyle Aframe is the perfect escape from the noise and chaos of everyday life.  Summer activities on the property include archery, splitting wood, hiking, horse shoes or just cozying up inside and reading a book by the wood-burning stove!  We also supply some board games and books for evenings inside.  In the winter months, there is great skiing and snowboarding around the cabin as well.

Life at the cabin is simple, but that means you'll go without basic, modern luxuries like running water, plumbing and electricity.  The bathroom is an outhouse and the main water source is a 7-gallon pressurized sprayer that can be filled at a local (seasonal) spring!  For doing dishes or even the occasional shower, it gets the job done and adds to the off-grid experience.  Light is provided by a basic LED solar kit as well as battery and gas powered lanterns.  

The cabin has four beds (two on the main level and two in the loft) and can sleep 8.  Cooking can all be done on a gas stove and small oven, so you can make a lot of the meals you would at home.  The wood-burning stove presents some opportunities for cooking if you're up for the challenge!  We supply all of the dishes, utensils and accessories you'd need, including cast iron pans and a 12-cup percolator (cabins and coffee go hand in hand).

Cell phone service is hit or miss.  AT&T does pretty well, with Verizon being spotty.  However, we recommend taking time to disconnect from technology and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the forest.  

Being so remote, there is nothing in the area other than some other cabins and mother nature.  The nearest gas station, restaurant or bar is over 30 minutes away, so come prepared with everything you'd need for a weekend in the woods!  This includes a good cooler and plenty of ice to keep your food (ahem, cocktails) cold!

Access in the winter is done by snowmobile, snowshoe or skis.  It's a moderate 3.2 mile trek from the parking area on a (usually) packed snow road.  In the winter, water can be obtained by melting snow in the supplied pots on the wood-burning stove!

We LOVE the time we spend at the cabin and know you will too!

The A-Frame was comfortable and entertaining. A perfect place to unwind in the mountains. The side of the mountain is flush with tree and makes a beautiful setting for gathering around the cabin. The hosts provide amenities and fun activities to keep you engaged however long you stay

We loved our stay at Argyle A Frame. Rich was a great host and was helpful. There were clear instructions. The cabin was adorable and just the right off-the-grid for our short trip. We plan to come back at some point in the future.

We were so excited to stay here but had something come up and couldn't go. Rich was the nicest host though! He sound out incredibly detailed instructions for arrival with photos and everything, incredibly kind! He was also very understanding when we needed to cancel. I'm hoping we can get back out to the cabin soon.

This was perfect for us! Rich was always quick to respond when I had questions, and gave lots of information and advice for the stay. If you are looking for a great adventure in the woods, this is your place.
It also had ample amount of room in case this is an adventure for many. Highly recommend! Thank you Rich!

The cabin was a great winter escape! The snowshoe/ski in & out were beautiful & made for a fun adventure- the dogs absolutely loved tromping through all the snow. The cabin itself was stocked with games, lanterns, kitchen necessities, propane for cooking, & wood for the stove. The beds were comfy, too. We would highly recommend & would love to come back in the summer ourselves!
