About Judy and Craig Sloan
Judy and Craig are living the dream of being in the mountains. Awesome views of Spanish Peaks and wildlife every where. We invite you to experience our little slice of heaven in Colorado.
Judy and Craig Sloan purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Judy and Craig Sloan chose Trinidad
We chose this Ranch to get away from the hustle bustle of daily life in the City. It gave our dog and best friend CJ plenty of room to run. We enjoy the surroundings with endless views and have time to relax with our ranch neighbors and new friends we meet at the cabin. We lived in this cabin as we built a new home on another parcel on the same Ranch. Now we invite others to experience our cozy little cabin for their get away time in the mountains.
What makes this Cabin unique
Guests can enjoy the mountains as we do, without any disturbances. Comfy log cabin, relax with a book, or just nap on the deck. Just listen to the wind go thru the tall ponderosa's. Enjoy the stars at night as they light up the forest floor. Tour the surrounding area of Southern Colorado, visit the Historic town of Trinidad where the stories of the "WILD WEST" were born. You can go to the many lakes to cool off or catch some nice Walleye, or visit the museums in town. Go hiking in the Spanish peaks wildlife area off the Highway of Legends thru Stonewall, Cuchara and LaVeta.

Fantastic place for quiet R&R
Craig and Judy met us at the gate, showed us around and served as great hosts. They left plenty of labels and printed instructions so we could find the MANY amenities they provided. The view was breathtaking!
Hunters stop over
Very clean and comfortable. A nice rustic get away in the mountains with terrific views. Provided a great place to park trailers we were towing with little worry about anyone having to watch them or the equipment overnight. very hospitable, friendly owners.
Beautiful Views and Comfortable Cabin
This was really a great trip for our family of 5 with three kids age 4-6. The property the cabin sits on has interesting rock features that our kids loved climbing on and a great fire pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Judy and Craig were great - greeting us and giving us a tour and how to operate everything. It was great to unplug for a few days. We have Sprint and could get text and calls for emergencies - but no internet which was great. Plenty of kitchen supplies and appliances (fridge, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, gas burners, coffee maker) for making meals. We spent most of our time on the porch or around the fire pit when not exploring the property, but the cabin is cozy and cool in the summer and would be warm in the winter with the wood burning stove. The "outhouse" is roomy and comfortable so you don't have to feel dirty after a day of hiking. Really loved this property and if you want to get away, this is a great option. It is about a 20-25 minute drive from Aguilar on I-25 (45 minutes to Walsenberg), so make sure you bring food or whatever you need. Great value. We will probably be back next year.
Great to see the family having fun away from the “ screens”. Thanks so much for staying with us. Hope to host again.

The cabin is set in the most amazing spot. I woke up every morning to have coffee while enjoying the incredible view of the Spanish Peaks and the Sanger de Cristo mountains. The property is private and quiet which makes for a perfect retreat. The property owners have truly thought of everything and are wonderfully gracious, hospitable and kind. I would highly recommend this for a getaway and I will definitely return.
Thanks for staying with us.
Glad you enjoyed the peaceful surroundings.

The Perfect Forest Retreat
We could not have asked for a more peaceful and restful vacation. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed. The queen size bed was so comfortable. But what was amazing was the view of the Spanish Peaks just outside the front door. We spend quiet days sitting on the front porch and enjoying the view of the mountains, wandering the beautiful pine forest around us, admiring the lovely wild flowers, and gazing at the amazing moon and stars at night. Judy and Craig were gracious hosts who greeted us warmly. They were easy to communicate with before and during our stay and gave us helpful information about their property and surrounding points of interest. It was hard to leave this lovely place and we look forward to visiting again soon.
We enjoy having others experience our little piece of heaven in the mountains.
Happy Trails until we meet again.
