This former Montessori style preschool turned mountain bunk house is a unique experience for the whole family. Situated on a working homestead where kid friendly animals abound, it backs up to the National Forest and is a year-round playground. Speaking of playgrounds, the kids can run and play right in the back yard, taking advantage of the play area and wonderful climate. This is a favorite stay for hunters, skiers and explorers. If animals and wildlife are not your thing, do not book here.
Guests staying at this bunkhouse in the past have described it as a wonderful adventure. Right outside the front door is a duck pond, right down the hill is the chicken coop and goat pens. The rabbits and horses like to hang out down there too. These animals grew up around children because for many years this was the home of New Beginnings preschool where working with the animals and in the garden was a part of the curriculum. :) Miss T still will gladly show you how to feed the chickens and find fresh eggs for breakfast. You can cook s'mores on the fire pit and listen to the owls and the elk. After a good snow you can walk on over to the sledding hill and wear yourself and the kids out. Snuggle up near the pellet stove or hang out in the sun room. It really is one great adventure after another.
Now if you don't like animals and hearing ducks and roosters or a dog barking at the elk at night, this probably isn't the place for you. This is real mountain life.
You'll have private access to the entire bunkhouse that includes two bed rooms, living, kitchen, laundry and large full bathroom. The bunkhouse has it's own fenced yard with direct access to the fenced duck pond area. You'll have shared access to the attached passive solar sunroom
Interaction with guests
Miss T and Mike love guests and they will respect your privacy. If you have questions, they live next door. If you would like some fresh eggs, just ask. They have lived up in the area for 14 years and can give suggestions on where to go and things to do and see.
