QUIET RETREAT CABIN WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS

Alamosa Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 5 or 6)

PLEASE NOTE: Please check our calendar before contacting us. We keep it current. We prefer that you email us first. That sets up a thread and we can refer back to it as often as necessary. That way we don't confuse your request with someone else's. Feel free to call after that if you have some question that you think can't be answered to your satisfaction by email. Thanks

There is a master bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a second bedroom with 2 twin beds down the hall. We have a couch that unfolds like a futon which can accommodate 1-2 people. There is a roll away available. The kitchen sink looks west across the valley and there is a bar so everyone does not have to be in the kitchen. The bathroom has a jetted tub and a double flush toilet. It's still a cabin, but is updated for more comfort. Please be aware that the dog door is out of operation at this time.

In winter, fall, and spring the wood burning stove makes the cabin very toasty warm, though there are other heat sources too. There is a small dining room table and the bar has 3 stools. There is a small refrigerator/freezer without icemaker, an electric range, toaster, coffee maker, stereo, DVD player, TV (no cable or satellite) for watching DVDs, a ROKU box, Wi-Fi, gas grill, and in the summer, hummingbird feeders. There is a washer/dryer. We provide: coffee filters, paper towel, tp, dish soap, dishwasher soap, clothing detergent, hand soap (bathroom), propane, spices, linens, towels, and wood for the stove. We ask that you recycle 1 & 2 plastic, magazines, white paper, aluminum cans, steel cans, cardboard. Glass cannot be recycled here in the valley. If you live in Denver you could take it home for recycling. There is a dumpster near the front of the subdivision where you can leave your trash.

This cozy cabin is located in the spectacular San Luis Valley in South Central Colorado just 5 miles south of the Great Sand Dunes National Park. Located 1500 feet above the valley floor (at 9000 feet) the cabin and large deck have 360 degree view of 14,000 ft. peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Range, an expansive view of the vast San Luis Valley including the far off San Juan Mountains and the Great Sand Dunes National Park. If you are looking for unequaled quiet, wildlife, (eg. bears, elk, antelope, deer, bobcats, coyotes etc.), amazing views and walking/hiking, this is the place for you - spring, summer, fall or winter. There is great hiking right outside the cabin door. We leave directions for a terrific hike to Zapata Falls (the back way!) Spring, summer and fall brings us four kinds of hummingbirds not to mention many other songbirds and raptors. We are dog friendly with just a few common sense rules.

Other attractions nearby include: Rail tours on the Toltec-Cumbres Pass Railroad & Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, Old Ft. Garland, San Luis Stations of the Cross, The Gator Farm, numerous cultural heritage sites and museums, hiking trails, bird watching, Greater Sandhill Cranes (Mar-Apr, Oct-Nov), summer farmers' market (Saturdays starting in July 8-1), local festivals, and rock climbing or hiking at Penitente (a famous climbing area with beautiful rock formations). A natural hot springs pool, The Sand Dunes Pool, is within a 30 minute drive. The Pool features a large 'hot tub temperature' pool and a somewhat cooler very large swimming pool (no chlorine) with deep end and diving boards, baby pool, and small restaurant that features organic tomatoes and basil grown in their own greenhouse. You may eat there whether or not you choose to swim. Google them for detailed information. Joyful Journey is a spa located about 1 hour north just south of the intersection of 285 and 17. They offer massage and several natural pools. Valley View (clothing optional ) is located east of Joyful Journey. They are located near a large bat cave where you can observe the bats emerge in the summer evenings. (The Orient Mine). In the summer Splashland near Alamosa provides a terrific outdoor pool with slide and diving board.

San Luis Valley Regional Airport airport is located in Alamosa (35 minutes away) and has daily connections to Denver.

Why The Owner chose Alamosa

I chose Zapata because of the unique valley bordered by two mountain ranges that provide a range of outdoor activities. The Great Sand Dunes National Park is right next door and numerous hot springs allow for a good soak after a long day of outdoor activities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"What a lovely place! We had a great time - The panoramic view is amazing. The hummingbirds' antics kept us mesmerized. Great place to bring kids - especially with the WiFi (Netflix & internet games capablility!) when they are needing some "down time".



Very comfy cabin - Thanks for making it SO easy! Couldn't find a guest book, so feel free to add these comments. 5-29-10 Mary, David et.al. "

Beautiful Cabin, Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is quite a gem. The views from the large deck were simply amazing. When we first pulled up to the cabin, it took us quite a while to go inside. We were so awe-struck by the beauty! The sand dunes! The countless hummingbirds!

The cabin itself is very lovely and cozy-- super clean as well. We enjoyed some wonderful meals on the deck while the sun set in the distance, as well as some cozy evenings with tea in front of the wood-burning stove. It was also nice to be so close to the sand dunes, which made for a fun afternoon adventure.

Communicating with Kim for booking, etc. was also quite a pleasure.

We hope to be back for another Colorado adventure in the future and highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a little escape to someplace special.

Perfection..

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I came here for a two day weekend getaway to see the sand dunes. Upon arriving at this magnificent cabin, we both realized that we'd be perfectly happy staying at 'home' for the duration of our stay. While we did take brief trips out to the dunes, the weather was a little uncooperative and yet our trip couldn't have been better. We spent most of the time out on the deck during the days and watching movies by the fire at night. We even brought out telescope to look at the stars, but when it turned out to be cloudy at night we instead took turns looking for wildlife up in the surrounding mountains during the afternoons. The manager was very helpful and gave great directions and thorough information about the area. We'll absolutely be back soon!

Fabulous Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent 2 nights here and it was great. We had a group of 4 and our 2 year old son and it was more than enough room. Everything was very clean and well kept. Kitchen was stocked well with cooking utensils. Plenty of firewood for the cozy wood burning stove. Overall a absolute fabulous rental with views you can not put a price on. We all highly recommend this cabin.

Fantastic cabin!

  • 5 of 5
Myself, husband, and two-year-old son stayed here and found the cabin to be absolutely fantastic. It was clean, well-appointed, and the views can't be described in words, they were so amazing. We'd love to come back some day!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
WOW - what a wonderful place to stay for our honeymoon. I can't imagine being able to find a better location. The views were breathtaking, especially the sunsets. The hummingbirds were amazing - so close one of them actually pecked at Bob's watch while he was standing on the deck. We traveled every day to nearby destinations, but were always back in time for dinner at "home". The accommodations were exactly as described and we were totally comfortable the entire time we were there. I could go on and on, but words can't describe how magical this cabin truly is. Thank you so much for a truly wonderful experience and we hope to come back again!

Fantastic retreat after a day at the Sand Dunes!

  • 5 of 5
A great escape with the family, the time was filled with fantastic views (bring binoculars), humming birds galore, and all the comforts of home. Seeing the huge desert valley below, visible from the deck, made for a great place to relax after a hot day on the Dunes. And being up high on the mountainside, everything was very peaceful and quiet, with cool breezes, seclusion, and that incredible view can’t be beat! Inside was equally wonderful, with a modern kitchen and bathroom - and had just the right furnishings to make it feel like you’re “roughing it” without getting sand anywhere but between your toes!
