The 4WD is required, but once there you are in a slice of Heaven!

Great house and great property. Beautiful view and a large front porch to spend time on. Plenty of beds and bathrooms for all. The living room was very enjoyable when the fire was rolling and mountains were in the background.

A wonderful place to unplug and escape from the busyness of life. If you enjoy porch sitting while listening to the birds and staring out at the mountains, then this is the right place for you. This home is everything you would envision a log cabin in the woods to be, right down to the décor. Very comfortable and perfect for a family vacation.
