Built in 1905, the "Butterfly" is cozy and authentically charming. Two bedrooms down and four twin beds up. One bath. A massive stone fireplace dominates the living room. Large windows allow great views of ponderosa pine and visiting deer. Modernization in the 50s to add kitchen and bath facilities included the enclosure of a porch with its sloped floor intact. Steep, narrow stairs are also typical of the era. If you love historic cabins, this is a great base for fishing, hunting or hiking.
The comfortable small space was built in the shadow of the Stone Wall, a dramatic section of the Dakota Wall which towers over Hwy 12 as it turns north through the pass headed to Cuchara. The morning sun on the wall is a treat that is not to be missed and we provide two coffee makers to prove the point. The wall also adds a cool view from the shower (before the windows fog). Many deer and the occasional bear are regular visitors to the area and can be easily seen through the large windows.
The cabin is only 850 feet on the ground floor so you get access to all of it!
We are typically available by phone throughout your stay. We also receive assistance from certain helpful neighbors, local handymen familiar with the Butterfly and the occasional family members who inhabit four other nearby cabins.

Most visitors to the area look forward to preparing their own meals and understand that some driving is required to dine out. However, the Stonewall Shopping Bag has a solid cafe and good pizza is served at Middlefork Resort, both of which are easy walks. Pinon Valley Lodge (15 minute drive) provides the closest upscale dining in a very cool environment. And no trip along Hwy 12 is complete without a visit to the Dog Bar, half an hour away in Cuchara. If you are looking for golf, your options are currently limited to the hidden jewel that is the Trinidad municipal 9-hole course.
