Enjoy a true one of a kind experience in one of the most beautiful places in Colorado. Here's what some of last year's guests had to say, “Rocky Mountain Paradise", "fabulous", "beautiful", "magical", "cozy", "hideaway in the mountains", "excellent", "breathtaking views", "modern cabin", "location is excellent", "awesome cabin", "great views", "true high desert experience", "clean and comfortable in a quiet, secluded location", "wonderful views", "It was amazing...”.
Come stay in a unique and secluded cabin just minutes from The Great Sand Dunes National Park. Located in a gated community with private access (via a short hike) to the incredible Zapata Falls, this cabin offers amazing mountain views from a wrap-around deck and second floor balcony. Watch the sun rise over Mt. Blanca; considered sacred to many Native American tribes, and set over the largest alpine valley in the world.
The Great Sand Dunes National Park is only 5 minutes away and offers days of enjoyment playing on the sands of the highest dunes in North America and getting cooled off in the lifeblood of the dunes - Medano Creek. The Great Sand Dunes pool is a mere 20 minutes to the west by the little town of Hooper. If the weather is cool or rainy, spend the day in the warm natural hot springs of the must-visit pool that is open year-round. If an active outdoor vacation in a truly unique setting is your goal, then this cabin is for you.
The cabin itself is situated on a very private acre and a half with a seasonal stream running just beyond the wrap-around deck. It features two comfortable bedrooms, both with queen-sized beds and walk-in closets. There is also a second floor with a futon for additional sleepers. Be aware that the stairs are rather steep and may be a challenge to elderly guests. The fully-equipped kitchen comes with all the appliances, cookware, and utensils you will need. There is also a gas grill on the deck to fulfill your grilling needs.
Because of the cabin's privacy and seclusion, there is no Internet and cell-phone reception is spotty at best. Because of this, we have hundreds of movies at your disposal to watch on the 2 flat-screen TVs and a radio to pick up the local stations. The sound system also features Bluetooth connectivity to pair with your phone. However, when you're enjoying the views of The Great Sand Dunes framed by the jagged peaks of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range, you will probably prefer to just unplug and connect with nature.
Please note: This property is not ideal for multi-family stays. Also, there is no laundry facilities on site. The closest laundromat is 15 miles to the south in the town of Blanca.
