**EARLY SPRING - FALL - WINTER NOTES**
Mountain log cabin living can be a blast when you know what to expect. There are a few more details to ponder as you plan this time of year: 4X4 wheel drive recommend in the likely case of snow packed road conditions. CDOT does an amazing job of keeping the main highway and road to the cabin plowed, but storm depending, plowing may not align with your arrival - departure timing. It will be important to check weather and road conditions week of your trip to ensure you pack and plan accordingly. Snow shoveling may be necessary to access drive - walk ways during your stay as there is no staff on site. The main heat sources: fireplace in living room, potbelly stove in front room, 1 propane unit in middle room, 2 infrared electric heaters.
