We weren't shopping for a cabin, we just wanted to have a look. What we found was pretty unbelievable.
The realtor led us into a long, dark hallway ending in a small room with orange shag carpet, a kitchen with no windows, an odd collection of deer heads and antlers, and 35 years of clutter.
Just before turning around and walking out again, we opened the dusty drapes. And then, our mouths fell open. The view was incredible. Acres of meadow grass, rock out-cropings, forest, and hundreds of miles of brilliant blue Colorado sky. And there in the distance sat the Mummy Range, regal and proud, with not another home in sight.
Before we knew it, we were signing papers. Then, we woke up.
It was going to take a lot to turn this sad little cabin into a home we would stay in. We had to gut the entire structure. Cut more windows so you could see the views from every angle. Rewire, re-plumb, and build a new bath. Then we put down hardwood floors, dressed the kitchen with marble counters, added a wood stove in case the power went out, plopped down some cozy furniture, and let the view do the rest.
We probably should have scraped it, but unfortunately, we didn't think of it. Now the fun part is seeing the reaction of visitors. On the outside it's a plain little cabin with a big secret. Step through the door and you're blown away by the charm, comfort, luxurious touches and most of all, the view. Like a lookout from a 'Birds Nest.'
We'd love to have you visit and tell us what you think. And if you're interested, you can see the Before and After pictures of the transformation at the Home-Decorating-and-Staging website link in this listing.
This little cabin is a place where time stands still. You quickly realize how restful it is to unplug from the demands of daily life.
Renew and refresh your spirit, allow yourself the luxury of slowing down. Enjoy the beauty of nature, take a little time to day dream, and possibly reconnect with someone special in your life.
