This charming mountain town is full of year around residents as well as seasonal cabins. You can see other cabins from your cabin and are on your own full acre of creekside property with views of the creek, pine, aspen and mountain to enjoy.
Less than a mile from the cabins is Highlands Presbyterian property, with access to a gorgeous nature trail, zip line,
archery and low ropes courses (call ahead to reserve).
"In town" you'll find a fresh water spring to load up water bottles en route to all your activities, the Meadow Mt Cafe serving up memorable breakfasts and lunches, Distant Harbors gift and antique store. You can also enjoy various activities at The Old Gallery...from yoga to soup supers on Tuesday nights, local art for sale or classes, you are welcome to stop by and see what is going on here, by the fire station.
