This historic inn has been serving guests since 1879! It's the closest restaurant to the cabin (~10 min. drive). Often books up summer/fall so best to make a reservation. Open Fri/Sat/Sun through the winter but call ahead to make sure they don't have an event or other closure. :)

Another 14er. The trailhead is a few minutes from our cabin. The biggest mountain you see from our cabin is actually a false summit of La Plata (goes up to Ellingwood Ridge).

Skiing
If you want to avoid ski crowds/traffic and you're coming from the Front Range: arrive early to ski at any resort along the way (A-Basin, Keystone, Copper, etc.), then continue up to the cabin to soak in the tub and relax. Or do the reverse on your return home.
