SMT Forest Cabin is a rustic unplugged cabin halfway up the Mountain above the tiny town of Drake,Co near Climbing, Hiking, 4 Wheeling, Hunting, Snow Shoeing, Back Country Sking,and Nature Observing! It is also only a half an hour away from Estes Park. This cabin is on the edge of property, surrounded by nature, makes it a great retreat during any season! The roads are maintained year round all the way up, but it is a dirt road with some wash boards and bumps.

The space
We are close to hiking trails, 4 wheeling, cliff climbing, and national forest with a lot of wildlife and beautiful views. We are close to Estes Park so you can enjoy the shopping strip, fishing in Estes Lake or hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. This is a off grid cabin with no running water, but drinking water and washing water with a foot pump sink is provided; as well as, a compost toilet in the cabin. We have 2 double size XL beds, and a kitchen nook with all the utensils you need to cook with. You can choose to cook on the wood burning fire place inside the cabin or the propane grill outside. We also pride ourselves in cleaning our cabin after every guest, whipping down every surface and changing out all sheets and towels.

Guest access
Cabin has its own driveway off our main driveway. Guest can hang around cabin, around fire pit or leave property to check out trails or walk along roads to see beautiful views! Famous Climbing Wall Monistary Trail is in walking distance from cabin. as well as short drive to 4 wheeling trail of Storm Mountain. Roads can be accessed year round with us getting very few snow days January through May. This year there was only 5 days the road was not accessible through winter, just ask if you have questions before you book, we would be happy to let you know the weather!

Other things to note
This cabin has no running water, and is ran on 12v battery charged by solar panels during day. It has 2 USB ports for small electronic charging but no wall outlets ran on direct current. Drinking water and washing water is available in cabin as well as compost toilet. There is also a cooler to keep food cold, but no fridge being unplugged and off grid. Please bring you own food and ice, plan accordingly! Also during winter months a 4 wheel drive vehicle is required to access cabin.

With The Monastery Rock Climbing trail in walking distance from property; as well as, several other hiking trails such as Storm Mountain Trail, Palisade Mountain Summit Trail, and Crosier Mountain Garden Gate Trail within short driving distance it makes it a convenient place to stay! This property also borders National Forest with wide open views in walking distance that take you out of this world and makes it easier to spot animals for fun or sport! This Beautiful Wildlife can be seen for miles from Elk, Deer, and Moose to Eagles, Owls, and Wild Turkey! It is right down the mountain from many 4 wheeling trails, making it nice spot to rest your head before exploring, and it is away from town with very few neighbors spread out long distances away from each other; allowing you to escape from hassle and bustle becoming immersed in nature right outside your front door!
