"All of the cabins are old west and beautifully decorated."
"They have all different size cabins to fit yourself or your group."
"All cabins have fireplaces & front porch view of mountains. Bring warm pjs or sweats bc it’s cool in the am"
"Cabins scattered throughout property - all a bit different"
"The cabins are very rustic, dating to the 1920's. Do not expect a luxury hotel. It is a dude ranch in the Rockies. And it is rugged."
