Enjoy this scenic get away. Off the beaten path! Cozy and unusual. Worth the trip into the beautiful national forest of the Uncompahgre Plateau, 37 miles west of Montrose. For those seeking an unusual but enjoyable vacation destination.
Unique historic one room school used as bunkhouse with sitting area. Placed here in 1935, it had been used almost full time until its last students graduated and moved on to high school in 1979.
Joined by a short path, is the teacherege. This building contains a modern, rustic bathroom with roomy shower, a small kitchenette with a large farmhouse style table for eating, playing board and card games or just enjoying your morning coffee. Kitchen is equipped for simple cooking: Microwave, 2 tiny refrigerators (coolers recommended with ice), coffee pot and dishes for up to six.
Nestled quietly in the beautiful mountains of Western Colorado at 8000 Feet, on the south slope of the Uncompahgre Plateau. Surrounded by pine forests and aspen groves, with two lakes near by. One for fishing, if you so desire but no swimming. (Sorry, no fishing on the property at this time). A cozy quiet get away, for anyone interested in a peaceful setting.
A great place for artists and families. Find creativity as an artists' retreat or anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful place for small group gatherings including weddings or workshops. Perfect for hunters looking for a place to stay while hunting in the permit only, Area 61 or adjoining near by Area 62. Nature lovers will especially enjoy this place as well. Fishing in our private lake (when available) or just a short distance to the San Miguel River and Miramonte Reservoir near Norwood.
Hiking all around on designated areas, ATV or motorcycle riding, horseback riding, if you bring your own horse and ATV/motorcycle, of course.. These are not provided.. Picnic area. Bring your bicycle. The roads are easy and walking is great too.
Did I forget to mention the Stars? Enjoy cool, sweet, summer nights and gazing at the stars from on top of the world! Watch the Moon come up!
You can get cell service, but NO TV! Sorry, It is called camping. There are cots available, but please bring your own sleeping bags, bedding, towels and other amenities. Bedding services may be furnished for an additional charge but you will need to call for availability. This isn't a motel or lodge. You can even pitch a tent in the yard if you desire. Always prepare for cool nights and occasionally rainy days. Bring the kids; the play ground equipment is still there from the school days. It is all sturdy, but old so use at your own risk.
If you are interested in day trips, you are only 40 minutes from Telluride, and an hour from Ouray. Norwood is our nearest town, just 20-30 min. away. The county road is graveled, so no need for 4-wheel drive. Coming up for the first time, I would recommend the route off of HWY 145 at mile marker 96 onto Sanborn Park Road. About 10 miles. Directions and maps are added to this sight. You will find the map in the photos section. Please call if you need more specific information. Whichever way you come, from Montrose via the Davewood/SanbornPark roads, also called Forest Service 530 road or alternate route from Hwy 145 to Sanborn Park road, the views are stunning and the destination into our pristine area well worth the trip. The drive provides spectacular views of the San Juan Mountains.
We are providing this opportunity for people who love the outdoors! Hope you will come and see what we have to offer. Get out of the city! It is cooler here too.
Enjoy the area's solitude. You will love it! For those looking for the extraordinary!
Call owner if interested in adding a camper to the sight for an additional fee.
For added sleeping space enjoy the cozy bunk house nearby with bunk beds for two additional guests.
