Cozy Rustic Cabin On 10 Acres At The Foot Of The Boggy Draw Trail Head.
About Bev Speece
My great grandparents traveled up from Cleburne, Texas to settle in the Dolores River Valley in the late 1800's. My family, including my grandparents, children, and grandchildren and I have enjoyed the beautiful river, scenery and crisp, dry climate for many many years. Even though I live in Hawaii most of the year, I have a wonderful manager who takes care of the cabin and will meet you when you arrive.
Bev Speece purchased this Cabin in 2012
What makes this Cabin unique
I built two cabins on the 10 acres that I purchased in 2012. The other cabin is on the west side of the property and it is called the Boggy Draw Cabin Listing on vrbo.com and Home Away as #743369. The Bear Cabin is nestled in the ponderosa pines on the east side of the 10 acres, so there is a lot of privacy for both cabins. The seclusion and privacy is what I love - along with the rustic mountain cabin experience. But then the Town of Dolores with it's fabulous Dolores Food Market and many excellent restaurants is only 3 miles away. Privacy with convenience!

A lovely cabin in a nice town with lots to do. Wonderful and friendly property managers!
A little piece of paradise
Beautiful property with a cozy cabin, perfect for our 20th anniversary celebration.
My husband and I had a wonderful visit. Everything was clean and the setting was beautiful. Nive private cabin and a great location to explore all over southwest Colorado.
Exactly what I needed - buried in the Ponderosa pines. Lovely
Just About Perfect
We talked about not, not too seriously, giving a glowing review so we could keep it our little secret for a repeat stay without competition. But we want to keep Bev working for us and not be selfish. This cozy cabin is not too close to noisy civilization but not too far away. We enjoyed our stay enough to hope to plan another one in the future. Dolores, CO, a nice small town nestled in a valley, is close with a well stocked, if small, (and a little expensive, but not unreasonably) grocery store and gas stations. Mesa Verde National Park is only about 30 minutes distant. Only a few minor downsides to be aware about: The internet is on an extender and not really fast enough for streaming, but adequate for email and loading web sites. No TV (but for us an upside) so bring your own movies on your laptop or tablet. There is no oven but the kitchen is otherwise well stocked for cooking. A full-sized frig. The water heater is the "heat it as you use it" electrical type but workable if you can be patient getting hot water. The water heater does not keep up well in the shower, which cycles hot and cold so I just turned the head away when the water was cold and turned it back on me when it cycled back to hot. No biggy, you need to "rough it" a little bit. Back to the pluses: plenty of firewood for the Franklin stove which is supplemented with two electric space heaters. The cabin seems to be very well insulated, we were more often too hot than too cold because of our poor management of the fires in the stove. Go and enjoy and keep it nice for our next visit.

Very nice accomadations.
Really enjoyed the cabin. Had everything needed. Secluded. We enjoyed a very romantic getaway. Thanks!
The cabin location is ideal for mountain bikers, hunters, or backpackers. The Lizard Head Cyclery in Dolores is only 3 miles away for any biking needs and the Dolores General Store carries many of your hunting needs and supplies. Many local residents and tourists enjoy fishing, tubing, rafting, and stand up paddle boarding on the Dolores River while picnicking at several beautiful river front town parks. The nearby McPhee Reservoir offers excellent fishing and boating. Dolores is also the home of many excellent restaurant and bars. It is also a 40 minute drive to Mesa Verde National Park, home of the ancient Anazazi Indians.
