Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
I moved to Colorado in 1970, immediately fell in love with the mountains of the most beautiful state in the union. Twenty-seven years later I was able to purchase this small modest cabin which was as much in need of me and I was it. With the help of a friend, it has been a labor of love to totally remodel it into a beautiful, very comfortable & cozy cabin. I am now semi-retired and spend as much time as possible at the cabin. I find peace & contentment in the mountains & I love sharing my cabin with family & friends.
Mary purchased this Cabin in 1997

A beaultiful place to spend some down time
A little far off the beaten path, but well worth it - the woods, the wildlife, the stars, the peace - fall is a spectacular time to visit
Thanks for your review.
We had a wonderful stay at The Castaway cabin! It was a great home base for the area: a day trip to Ouray, Black Canyon of the Gunnison and Curecanti National Recreation Area. The cabin was very clean and so wonderfully decorated! We appreciate taking the time to make our own meals and were thankful that the kitchen had all of the equipment that we needed. The cabin did have a few other cabins that were close to it that we weren't expecting but there weren't any visitors at those cabins so we still felt secluded and it was quiet. Thank you, Mary, for a wonderful cabin to call "home" for a week! It was fantastic!
Hannah, thanks for your wonderful review. I’m so happy that you enjoyed your visit to the Castaway Cabin and so appreciate that you left the cabin so neat and tidy. Thanks again. Mary
Couldn’t Be Better
We spent 7 days in this great place! The house was just what Mary had described...clean, neat, quiet, well-stocked with spices that made fixing a meal easy, and comfortable enough to sit, read, sleep, and relax listening to the rainfall.
We saw deer with a fawn and a coyote!
As time drew closer to leaving, we almost made a call to see if it was available for another “few days”. Very hard to leave the cool mountain air for Texas 100 degree temps!
Thanks, Mary, and as soon as we set dates for another trip to the mountains, we’ll be looking at your place!
Excellent get away
Secluded haven with plenty of wooded area and big night sky viewing around the campfire. Deer were often walking across the yard in the early morning or late evening. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Every convenience of home but still in the wilderness. The town of Montrose is just close enough to get any forgotten items.
Beautiful and Fairly Remote
This was exactly what we wanted- a very nice house that we could call home for a short time.House is very well kept and clean. Very quiet except when my husband put out tons of seed for the Stellars Jays. These are bright blue and noisy. We also had White chinned swifts and countless chipmonks and ground squirrels and a few rabbits and deer. We heard elk in the evening but did not see any. Location conveniant to Black Canyon (Awesome), weather very nice with nights at 60 or so. Coming from Texas where it has been over 100 for the entire summer, this was fabulous. Loved the wildlife!!!

Lovely Cabin in Serene Setting
My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing four night stay in this well appointed cabin that had everything we needed to be comfortable and happy. The big wrap around deck was a joy and our dog and I really enjoyed sitting out there. I liked watching the sunsets and stars from the deck too. The stars were out in heavenly force. My husband enjoyed grilling on the deck and did all of the cooking! The lakes were so beautiful and made for pastoral lunch scenes. We enjoyed Flint Lakes and Hazel Lake as well as the cozy coves and beaches found on the big Blue Mesa reservoir. We loved the aspens and the wildlife, including deer, a red-winged black bird, a frog, squirrels and neon blue dragonflies a plenty! Thanks so much for the wonderful vacation. The Many's
You'll enjoy visiting Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and Blue Mesa Reservoir.
