Carriage House

The Carriage House is a One Bedroom, two level, two Bath, 800 square-foot cabin with over 300 square-feet of deck on both levels. The Carriage House was designed by the McDonald family in the “mountain log lodge vernacular”. (Please note both bathrooms are located on the 2nd floor, upstairs.) The first floor has a full kitchen, dining area, and a convertible living room that includes a high end queen sized sofa sleeper. We also have two twin size roll away beds available upon request. These two roll-away beds can be added to the lower or upper levels. The second floor has a full bathroom which includes a shower / tub combo, located at the top of the stairs. The second floor also includes the master bedroom, with a separate full bath with a walk in shower, two sink vanity area, and water closet. The master has a queen bed with high end bedding. There is an entrance from the master suite out to a beautiful wrap around redwood deck which has chairs and a spectacular view of the mountains and meadows.

We feel that the elevated wrap around porch is one of the best things about the Carriage House. There is a large oak tree that the deck was built around bringing the nature of the hills close as you sit and enjoy the views from every angle. From its elevated decks, you have scenic views of mountain meadows and rolling wooded hills full of the famed dark ponderosa pine trees. Our meadows, although variable with the season, are rich in color and usually have an abundance of wildlife including deer, turkey, squirrels, etc. With just a short walk, Mt. Rushmore is visible through the trees!

The Carriage House provides an in cabin washer/dryer, as well as fully stocked cooking facilities. We have access to free Wi-Fi, a 32″ Roku smart TV, central air conditioning and heating, and outdoor dining facilities with a propane grill. (We supply the propane.) Please note that due to our rural area we do not have the most reliable cell service.  We upgraded our Wifi to Starlink satellite internet in Spring 2022.  Check in is at 4:00pm MST or later. Given our full house and small staff, we ask that you do not arrive early. Late check in, after 6pm, can be arranged; please call us.

*Minimum age requirement for the Carriage House is three years old.  On the property is a swing set and other outdoor equipment for children to use, including a large, well kept meadow.

*Maximum occupancy of 5 people, I.E. – One family.

*Due to many considerations, and despite our love of animals, we do not allow animals / pets on our property. No exceptions. Thanks for your understanding.

*You may park in front of the Carriage House entrance. Please do not block either garage door. Please leave enough room for traffic to get by from the garages and the other cabin nearby.
