About Deb McLachlan
We are 22 West. Eli and Pat are 6th generation and Deb is 5th from a long line of Irish immigrants and brave, stubborn, hard working ranchers. Our land was generously gifted from the kindest, hardest little working woman, Sarah Iris Irvine, whose desire was to keep this land in our family at a huge sacrifice to her. Our rentals also help to support North Park Wildlife Rehabilitation. Deb cares for injured and orphaned wildlife in Jackson, Routt and Grand counties.
Deb McLachlan purchased this Cabin in 1920
Why Deb McLachlan chose Walden
22 West is located 18 miles southwest of Walden, CO along the Park Range, Routt National Forest and the Zirkel Wilderness. Deb and her mom Sarah Iris were both born here in the old homestead which can be seen from the cabin. This is home, where our roots run deep.

Great view and awesome little cabin.
Can't wait to come back!
LOVED this amazing retreat. Highlights include amenities, wildlife, and host! Would love to come back.
Very Special Place
The cabin was cozy with wonderful views all around. Patrick helped us snowmobile our gear up to the place and back. We'll definitely return to this special retreat.
Perfect Cabin Retreat!
A lovely spot to get away for a few days. Amazing views! Deb was a wonderful host.
Cozy cabin with gorgeous views
Cabin was clean and cozy with spectacular mountain views. Deb and Pat were very kind and helpful and made sure we had everthing we needed. Deb gave us suggestions of things to do and where to explore. Pat helped me get our stuff up to the cabin with his snowmobile since the last bit of road is closed. My daughter and I had a great time playing in the snow and hanging out together. We found lots of animal tracks in the snow and heard some, but we only caught a glimpse of an antler. Maybe next time we can explore more to see the wildlife. I would definitely recommend coming here and hope to come back in the spring.
Above and beyond what we expected!
Deb is incredible!!! My sister and I went up to this cabin completely unprepared for a snow storm. My car got stuck right before we hit HQ, Deb & co helped to get my car to a safe place and we ended up staying at the Whistle Pig due to it’s closeness. Even if we didn’t stay at the Eagle’s Nest due to the snow storm, Deb went out of her way to help us up to the Whistle Pig and ensured that if we couldn’t get home safely the next day that we could stay until it was safe to get home. Although I can’t speak for this particular cabin, I can speak for the host and she went above and beyond to ensure that we were safe and warm and had a great night. Thank you Deb, we’ll definitely be back and will stay for much longer!
Routt National Forest and the Zirkel Wilderness are just up the road. The Delaney Butte Lakes and Roaring Fork and Platte Rivers are close by. Buffalo Pass, for superb snowmobiling is a short distant away.
Please check your weather conditions before heading out as mountain conditions can change quickly. The Jackson County Road dept. does not plow on weekends and holidays.
