About Jack's Cabin

Jack's Cabin was built in 1965, when the A-frame cabin fad swept through the Colorado mountains. It is a simple structure and retains many original features of its era.

The cabin is located in the pines at an elevation of 6,600 feet (2,030 meters). It sits on four acres, together with our home. One side of the property touches the San Isabel National Forest; other public lands, including the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness Area, are a short drive away.

It has two loft bedrooms upstairs, with a full kitchen, bathroom, dining room, and living room/study downstairs. Each bedroom has one double bed, plus there is an additional twin bed upstairs and one downstairs.

The kitchen contains basic utensils, microwave oven, refrigerator, coffee maker, crock pot, and electric stove. An outdoor charcoal grill is also available.
