media & Communications

Cabins are equipped with WIFI and streaming internet TVs with Netflix and YouTube (there is no traditional cable access). The cabin phone has free long distance and local calls. 

hot tubs

Cabins have outdoor hot tubs. 


Only park in our designated parking area. Do not park on the roads—it is not allowed in our neighborhood. Additionally, in winter what may look like a nice flat snow surface could be a 5 foot ditch that your vehicle will sink into and get stuck. The plow people will also tow any vehicles parked on the road in winter. 

plowing / shoveling

In winter if there is a plow-able snowfall of 3 inches or more of wet snow our driveway will be plowed for your convenience. Please  move your cars off the driveway when our plow person comes. 

For your convenience there is a snow shovel and snowmelt granules that may be sprinkled on the steps and walkways on up to 3 inches of snow or ice.  Most guests have no problems negotiating our driveway in winter when it is plowed; however it is recommended that everyone carry snow chains in the winter when traveling in the Colorado Mountains. 


The cabin is fully furnished with linens, cookware and dishes. We also stock 4 rolls toilet paper, 1 roll of paper towels, laundry detergent and dish detergent. Personal amenities include hand soap, hand lotion, hotel size bath/shower gel, shampoo and hair conditioner. If the BBQ is out of propane please call Pam to fill the tank. On extended stays maintaining the cabin with the essentials once provided supplies are depleted is up to the guests.  

heating & cooling

Cabins offer thermostatically controlled heating and gas log fireplaces. Space heaters are available for additional warmth. There is no air conditioning (almost never needed at 8,500 feet!) but there are ceiling fans and table fans available.
