Private cabin with view of monuments

Villa Grove, Colorado

This new cabin I would rate as 5 star accommodations. Clean,comfortable beds and pillows,kitchen with large refrigerator; microwave, dishes, coffee maker, and lots of great amenities. Loved the decor and especially the private porch overlooking the monuments was a wonderful place to eat both dinner and breakfast. Nice hiking trail up behind the cottages. If you plan on taking sunrise pictures of the monuments they leave the outside lights on all night so not possible to get pictures which was the only downside of visit.
