Overview

About the property

400 Sq Ft Cabin, Queen-Size Bed, Full Bath, Kitchenette, Smart TV, WiFi

The Barn Star Guest Cabin is tucked on the edge of an expansive valley and surrounded by National Forest and the Falls Creek Archeological/Recreational Area. Thousands of acres of the San Juan National Forest surround the property. "Hidden Valley" offers Summer and Winter recreational activities like hiking, biking, show-shoeing and cross-country skiing.

The cabin is 400 square feet on a single level with designated parking close to the cabin entry which is also at the same level. It is appointed with fun colors, updated vintage touches and art & accessories. There is a hotel quality queen size bed with down comforter and cotton-sateen sheets, a kitchenette with quality appliances, cookware, utensils and a full-sized refrigerator. The full bath has tub/shower combination, a marble-topped vanity and terrific views. There is a Smart TV so you can access your Netflix and Amazon Video queues & dedicated Wi-Fi for the cabin. And in the winter, the propane cast-iron stove provides your heat and added ambiance.

The rental portion of the cabin is the top floor - the downstairs portion is not occupied. It is accessed via a separate entry and used only for storage and occasional studio space by the owner. The main room houses the Queen-sized bed, dresser, cozy upholstered chair & rocker, dining table, propane cast-iron stove (for heating) and the kitchenette. There is a hallway area with pantry and storage and a separate full bathroom.

Outside there is a seating area that invites you to enjoy the views and the peace & quiet. It's not unusual to see elk, deer, bears and coyote in the meadow. And if you're a bird-watcher you'll see hawks, vultures and eagles soaring along the ridge-lines to the east and west. A short hike takes you to an overlook of the Animas River and valley.

***PLEASE NOTE, TO EXPEDITE RESERVATIONS, ALL QUOTES INCLUDE THE EXTRA CLEANING FEE FOR PETS. IF YOU ARE NOT TRAVELING WITH A PET, PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIOR TO SUBMITTING YOUR PAYMENT AND I WILL REVISE QUOTE TO EXCLUDE THE FEE***

Dogs are welcome at the Barn Star. Visiting dogs should be kept on leash when on property. Directly across the road are hundreds of acres where your furry friend can run free. A loaner crate is available and stored under the bed. Additionally bowls, towels, brush, cookies and waste bags are provided. There is a 2 dog maximum.

Ample recreational activities await nearby from hiking, biking and fishing to the famous Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway, shopping and fine eating establishments. Mesa Verde is a great day-trip as well as Pagosa Springs. The famous ski town of Telluride is a beautiful 2 hour trip through some of the best Aspen stands in the state. If you are visiting in the fall season, the colors there will not disappoint. In the winter, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing are out your front door. And Purgatory Ski Resort is 30 minutes up the highway.
