We stayed here for two days while roaming around looking at the fall colors in north Central Colorado. The 14 Columbine cabins are actually all that's left of the town Columbine, a mining camp built in the late 1800s. The cabins are all log, many renovated in the '90s with new chinking and flooring. They're fairly rustic, so great for people who want something other than a standard motel room or who want to imagine that they're back in time. Our cabin, Skiers, was close to the road and general store, but nonetheless was very quiet and surrounded by beautiful yellow aspen trees. The stove worked fine, and we were able to heat the place with a little electric free-standing radiator. The cabin had a toilet, which I appreciated, and we showered at the bathhouse, which was well-stocked and very nice. The only downsides were that the bed wasn't comfortable, and the cabin was slanted a bit, so the bed kept sliding away from the wall! It was also a bit pricey for what you get. I'll go back, though, if I can. The whole place is up for sale, so here's hoping whoever buys it keeps it the same and doesn't close it to the public.
