The Cabins

Although the main lodge and restaurant burned down April of 2012, do not be fooled into thinking all of the cabins have disappeared too! The cabins are still in great shape, with three of them newly remodeled. Each cabin has a fire pit outside and a rustic wood & log decor indoors and outdoors. The cabins also feature a full kitchen offering: refrigerator, microwave, toaster, stove, oven, coffee maker, pots, pans, utensils, and dishware; just bring groceries and a chef! Each cabin has its own shower, sink, and toilet.

We are now serving espresso & americanos. The only espresso on the Mesa! We may not have a restaurant, but ask about our food options! There's a restaurant down the street, and we will stock your kitchen for you!
