We stayed in the Tall Pines cabin for 3 nights. Tall Pines is the second-to-last of the 5 cabins on the north side of 2 lane Hwy 82, slightly uphill and across the highway from the main lodge. The single lane road that leads to these 5 cabins is unpaved, bumpy, and narrow, but if you drive slowly and carefully you'll be fine. The single lane road runs in front of all 5 cabins and is between Hwy 82 and the cabins, so the cabins are not right on the highway. These 5 cabins are well spaced apart from each other and are set in mostly aspen stands, providing privacy. All of these cabins have decks or patios. Tall Pines has an elevated patio with metal railing, and there are 5 red patio chairs that nicely match the red metal roof and window trim of the cabin. We enjoyed sitting out here and enjoyed the beautiful views across the road towards the mountains to the south. We could also see these views from inside the cabin though the 2 large corner windows. We also enjoyed having campfires in the evening in the fire pit adjacent to the cabin. Even though we brought our own wood, the lodge provides complimentary chopped wood for guests by the main lodge. The cabin had everything we needed for cooking, and bed and bath linens. The cabin was comfortable and clean but is very rustic, but we already knew this and expected it. Our only complaint really about the interior is that the flooring needs updating, maybe put in wood flooring like some of the other cabins? The carpet is torn by the front door and in general looks tired. Also, the sink in the bathroom is very tiny, like the kind one would find on a train. Good for brushing teeth and washing hands at the most. Tried washing my face in it once and got more water on the floor than in the sink! Doubt there is room to put a bigger sink in anyway. However, these things did not significantly detract from the overall experience and are part of the rustic feel. Yes there is noise from the highway as cars go by, but the amount of cars drops to almost none when it counts...bedtime. Our bed was comfortable too and we slept well. It's so dark here and away from city lights and cities in general which helps. We were fortunate to have quiet neighbors on both sides and felt that we got the privacy and peacefulness that we wanted. Prices are very reasonable. We even heard elks bugling all 3 evenings we were there. We felt like we were camping, with nice accommodations of course. This is the kind of place we have been looking for to add to our list of favorite weekend getaways.
