Relaxing mountain retreat, with all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

The Fanrsworth's mountain cabin is truly a special place. Spectacular views right off the deck and still only a short drive to the small country store if you find that you left something at home. Miles and miles of trails that can be enjoyed on the bikes and RZR. Not as busy as Tin Cup and Taylor Park which are just a 30 minute drive over Cumberland Pass. Whether cooking over a camp fire or in the spacious kitchen/dinning area, you will certainly enjoy your time here. I look forward to our next stay.

Pitkin is the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! This is a great place to stay for family's large or small. The view is beautiful and the town of Pitkin is a place ourselves and my family has loved going to since the late 60's. We had 3 different couples stay for the week, had plenty of room, the cabin is well stocked for everything you need and far enough away from everyone to feel like your by yourselves. Hope to be able to return next year! Thank you Shawn and Stephanie for sharing your mountain home!

Breath taking view, secluded and has all the amenities you need in the Rocky Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We came to the Pitkin area to ride our side by side on the numerous trails in the region. This place seemed remote when viewing it, but once there we discovered a very nice home with a wonderful historic town just moments away. We were on the trails in seconds, gas is available in town along with many other supplies. The road to the cabin is a bit rough, but we pulled a 30' enclosed gooseneck to it with no problems, just go slow.

We did have cell service, Verizon and AT&T for calls and text bit data usage is a bit limited with no internet at the cabin.

The cabin has no well, but storage tanks for water and with four of us there was plenty of water remaining and we had not touched the reserve tank.

fantastic views, excellent value, warm

  • 5 of 5

Hunting with grandpa and the younger generation. You do not need to commute to find game you are sharing their home. Stealthily hike to prime deer and elk habitat and still ATV accessible. Our middle of the day timberline ORV ride up to the old historic train tunnel was breathtaking. Host Shawn is an avid hunter and will give you excellent tips for the area.

Great Mountain Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

This modern mountain cabin has all the comforts of home. Nice to come back to after a day of riding the abundant, very scenic ATV Trails. This was a very memorable family vacation. I hope to return again, as this would be a great place to hunt out of. There are several public hunting areas near the cabin. Pitkin is a very friendly town as well! The Farnsworths were very welcoming and informative. Thanks again!!
