    We booked this cabin for our marriage and we got everything we hoped for. Nestled in the woods with tons of breathtaking views and wildlife. Couldn't have picked a better spot. Hospitality was second to none.

  • Absolutely Wonderful


    We had an amazing time enjoying the cabin and mountains in the snow. Even with the cold the Cabin was so warm and cozy. It is extremely clean and beautiful to rest and relax. It was our second time to rest and refresh. (The first time was in the summer.) It just beautiful both times but watching the snow fall and the deer was so peaceful. The cabin is also surrounded by forest and you feel like you are away from civilization but 5 minutes to the grocery store, restaurants and other stores.

    Thank you so much to James and Connie Vaughn for your hospitality. We can't wait to come again.

  • Wonderful cabin in the woods


    Loved the beautiful peaceful location at the edge of the San Juan National Forest! Stayed with my husband and brother over Thanksgiving weekend. We were able to cook lots of delicious food in the well-stocked kitchen and were super cozy during the first big snowstorm of the year. James was a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed. We hope to stay again, we have family nearby and this was the perfect spot to stay. Thanks!
