The Mountain Log Cabin that You've Been Dreaming of...

Located in: Placerville
If you have been dreaming of staying at a picturesque wilderness log cabin with end of the road privacy and spectacular mountain scenery, this is the place. Located on Hastings Mesa at an elevation of 9000 feet, San Juan Cabin was built in 1999 out of hand-crafted Scandinavian full scribe Engleman spruce logs. The cabin sits on 78 acres on the side of a ridge overlooking Willow creek and meadow . There are groves of aspen and oak to picnic in. Also stands of large Ponderosa pine trees. It is just outside of Telluride with views so large and spectacular that you can see many of the most famous peaks including; Mt. Sneffels, Mears Peak, North Pole, the San Miguel range and the extinct volcano, Lone Cone.

San Juan Cabin is remote yet easily accessible to Telluride (30min.) Ridgway (20min.) and Montrose (1 hour) The trip to Telluride can be by highway or the scenic old stage coach path known as Last Dollar Road. The location puts you in the heart of the wilderness yet an easy drive to town or the regional airport in Montrose.

Much of the original True Grit movie was filmed in this area. If you have seen the movie you will recognize our view to the South as the opening scene.

The cabin has 3000 square feet of finished living space. It has a full kitchen as well as a partial kitchen on the lower level. The lower level can be separate independent living quarters for a second family.

It also is environmentally 'green' with a very small carbon footprint running on solar and wind power. Heating comes from passive solar and a stone fireplace, the fireplace has catalytic combustion for low emissions. The water supply for the cabin comes from a well on the ridge above it. It is pumped by solar power into a 1,200 gallon cistern, then with gravity pressure it comes into the cabin. When the cistern is full the excess water goes into an overflow pipe and comes out in a fountain near the front door. This waters the ground around the area.

The wildlife is abundant here. Deer and Elk are everyday sites along with Coyote, Turkey, Grouse,and Eagle. Sometimes Bobcat, Porcupine and Bear are seen. Wildflowers abound in May, June and July with fields of lupine and arrowroot by the thousand. The Autumn colors are awesome, with red oaks and aspens of purple and gold.

You can hike and bike right out the front door on trails and dirt roads around the cabin. There is also great biking on the abandoned railroad grades. Mountain bikes are provided. You can hike on the National Forest trails with access from many of the neighboring roads. Hot springs beckon at both Ouray and Ridgway. Stargazing is magnificent from the telescope on the deck with stars so bright it will give you the sense of wonder and awe back that you knew as a child.

THE CABIN IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR RENTALS FROM MAY 1st to NOVEMBER 15th.
