Property Description

It’s about TIME. Time moves slower at “Thoreau’s Cabin”. Situated at an altitude of 11,400 feet along the Engineer Pass section of the Alpine loop, your cell phone won’t ring, and your emails will have to wait until you’ve come down. The 102000-acre Uncompahgre Wilderness is your backyard and Alpine Tundra is your sanctuary. Henson creek flows below the 150-foot-long suspension bridge to your incredibly appointed log cabin. Solar panels, two 1000- gallon buried propane tanks, a deep well, and a wood stove provide off grid amenities unrivaled at this altitude. Enjoy a hot shower, a cold drink, and a grilled feast after a full day of nature exploration! The cabin has been operated as a successful AirBnB and is a highly coveted elopement destination. Possibilities are unlimited – Short term rental, elite athlete training base, hut system addition, peak bagging respite, exclusive hunting lodge, artist/star-gazer retreat, back country/heli-ski operation, fly fishing camp, wedding venue, writer’s haven, OHV or mountain biking staging area.......If you’ve dreamt of the ultimate mountain getaway, it’s time to make your dream reality! The cabin’s main level is an open concept living room with sleeper sofa, dining area, kitchen, queen bed, and huge windows framing gravel mountain in the distance. The kitchen features a propane powered refrigerator/ freezer, large sink with triple filtered water, and propane range with stovetop. The bathroom has a toilet, shower, hot water heater, and generous storage closets. The loft features two queen beds and a view of Wildhorse Peak out the window. The flagstone floors of the main level continue to the front patio with picnic table and gas grill. There is also a large, covered patio with a myriad of potential uses. A walkway leads down to a fire pit on the pristine banks of Henson Creek. Offered fully furnished, excluding owner’s personal effects and artwork.
