We are only 20-30 minutes from the hustle and bustle of several well known 4-season resorts but a "million miles away", nestled in the heart of mountain ranch land, adjacent to the historic Knorr Lakeside ranch.
Our property is not real big but we are surrounded by big space - open ranch meadows and public land. The cabins all have rustic exteriors but are modern and clean inside.
All our CABINS have full kitchens and come fully furnished. You will be pleasantly surprised at the generous sizes of our cabins, they are small houses.
And they are pet friendly - Mature dogs are welcome for an additional fee and with some restrictions.
+ NOW MARIJUANA - FRIENDLY - WE HAVE CREATED AN OUTDOOR AREA FOR RESPONSIBLE ADULTS TO ENJOY THEIR MARIJUANA - the 4/20 BACKYARD. AWESOME VIEWS BY DAY, CAMPFIRE BY NIGHT.
(PARENTS - PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL AREAS OF THE PROPERTY ARE NOT "MARIJUANA - FRIENDLY" . SEE OUR POLICY BELOW)

CANCELLATION POLICY - So there is no misunderstanding, please understand you will be charged for the time you reserve. If you cancel your rental contract at anytime prior to arrival you will forfeit your deposit and last month rent unless we can re-rent your space.
SMOKING AND MARIJUANA POLICY - Smoking of anything is not allowed INSIDE our cabins. We do allow smoking OUTSIDE on your porch or deck, including marijuana, by adults of legal age BUT it needs to be done discreetly. Out of respect for our other guests, you must refrain from smoking openly in front of your neighbor guests and especially all children.
Possession and use of marijuana is a sensitive subject and we will do our best to accomodate our guest and friends of all opinions. Our marijuana "policy" is a work in progress.
We invite our marijuana smoking guests to visit our 4/20 BACKYARD. It is on the "east" side of our property, behind the "lodge" building/office/store. Here you can enjoy your pot with other like-minded adults enjoying the mountain views or have a campfire under the stars.
The "west" side of our property, where our two bedroom cabins are, is a more family friendly area and smoking marijuana openly will not be allowed.
Since most persons do not know or understand the local rules and laws associated with marijuana use, we have a seperate page that explains all that. If you plan to use marijuana in Summit County, please visit the page. Please feel free to ask what we allow and what is not allowed on our property when you call about reservations.
HOT TUB POLICIES -
We currently offer a hot tub for our adult guests during the summer season. It is an awesome relaxation after a long day hiking or fishing. The view before dark is breathtaking. After dark, normally, very quiet and peaceful and millions of stars.
Please bring you swim suit since street clothes are not allowed in the tub. Please respect our policy of no children under 16 in the hot tub.
We realize that the hot tub has some inconvenient rules for a few persons BUT hot tub maintenance is expensive and water is limited. Please respect our rules so we can continue to offer it for free. If cleanliness becomes a problem or rules are not followed we will discontinue availability.
HOUSEKEEPING POLICIES - Our cabins are housekeeping cabins - you are required to clean up prior to vacating. We expect you to return the cabin to us in the same condition that you received it-wash dishes, sweep and vacummn, remove trash, clean bathroom etc. If excessive cleaning is required we will withhold a cleaning fee from your deposit, amount will depend on how long it takes us to prepare the cabin for the next guests.
DAY VISITORS POLICY - Also, for several reasons, we limit the total number persons allowed in a cabin, day or night - that includes "day visitors". We expect our guests to respect our limits and not abuse their welcome. If you have friends or family camping around the reservoir, please visit with them at their campsites. Due to the lack of water and sewer hookups at the campgrounds, day visitors are especially not allowed to use our water and septic related facilities. Excessive visitors will be asked to leave.
PET POLICY - We will consider mature, quiet dogs - they must be at least 12 months old and completely house trained. They are not allowed to be left unattended (not even in a crate), either in the cabins or outside on our property, and must be on leash while outside on our property. Aggressive breeds like Pit bulls and rotweilers, cats, kittens and puppies are NOT allowed. No exceptions.
WIRELESS INTERNET - Yes, we have wireless internet BUT our service is provided by satellite. It is not as fast as DSL and our total usage is limited by FCC regulations. If we violate those limits our service is interrupted, possibly up to 30 days. SO...we discourage our guests from downloading movies, tv shows, streaming radio or live shows and no downloading or uploading of large files. Please do all your downloads before arriving. We are aware that this may be an inconvenience for some BUT we love our rural location and are grateful for the service because our only alternative is dialup. Please consider these limitations, espcially if you have children that depend on the internet, before making the reservations.
please call 970-468-8497 for reservations.
