Simply put: Our Views are SPECTACULAR!! Count 54 Mtn peaks on our 180 degree view of the Continental Divide from the big wrap around deck. It is modern (built in 1991) and has a nice cinnamon and sage southwestern Indian décor theme. There are views out every window and it is a great place to spend time being inspired by Mountain grandeur. Just a 10 minute drive to the Historic Gold Rush Town of Cripple Creek, you can enjoy many different restaurants and casinos. This cabin utilizes an open concept design, using room dividers, walls, and lofts, rather than separate bedrooms - with the bathroom being the only totally private room. This is our only solar cabin which does have regular 110 electric AC wall plugs. If you feel adventuresome and into a unique new experience – then trying a Solar Cabin can be a great way to get away from it all and enjoy Nature fully! No Smoking, No pets, No phone..

A generator is provided for emergency power, but is not necessary unless lights overused,left on while gone or other misuse of solar power.
