Our lot is in an area that borders the National Forest, so there are millions or acres of wilderness close by. The trailhead for the Colorado Trail is minutes away.

The area boasts the best rafting in the West. If you don't feel like a wild ride through the rapids of world-famous Brown's Canyon, there are milder floats.
Enjoy the many restaurants, including a deck where you can sip a drink and watch the kayakers on the river. (Or, save money and sit on our deck and watch the creek rush by.) You can also rent a jeep or ATVs, play golf, fly fish and play mini-golf.
When you're not at the creek or on the deck watching the sun dip behind the mountains, gather in the family room for games, reading or to sit by the fire. This rustic, family-friendly cabin is decorated with a mountain/western theme and is fully furnished for a single family or couples.
Plan your own getaway, or we'll provide you with links to area activities and attractions.

This area has all that a Colorado vacation can offer--and it's very affordable. We love sitting above the narrow river valley, in a meadow right on the creek. Locals call the Upper Arkansas River Valley the Banana Belt; the geography and weather patterns bring more moderate winters.

Or over the divide to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, an awesome geological wonder.
