Nestled in the aspen and pines this cabin is in a perfect location for getting off the grid and enjoying private trails on the tranquil side of the Continental Divide. Our Elk Run Trail is snowmobile packed for non-motorized recreation and is a great hiking trail in the summer. Steamboat is about an hour away. The setting is secluded. The deck is a place you will spend a lot of time looking out at the view. The Marmots, (Whistle Pigs), will often make an appearance. Wildlife abounds, Moose, Deer, Elk, Pronghorn, Eagles, Hummingbirds, and many other critters live here. The place is very comfortable and clean. This is a tranquil place to unwind. Our directions here are best as other methods aren't reliable.
The Whistle Pig Retreat's deck overlooks the forest and chokecherry bushes where birds of many species perch. The home is cozy and warm. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a queen bed, sofa bed and a inflatable mattress. The bathroom is fully furnished with a shower/tub, toilet, and his-and-hers sink. There is a washer and dryer.
All this with plenty of recreational opportunities right here. Routt National Forest and Mount Zirkel Wilderness with 100's of miles of trails and over 70 lakes is just up the road if you want to drive or you can hike from the cabin on the property.
22 West Cabins offers hiking opportunities right here. Check out our trail dubbed "Narnia" which takes you to where two waterfalls merge on the Roaring Ditch from about May until about the first week of July. The road to the cabin is private.
