--- A Pristine Rough Hewn American Cabin Village with a River Running Through It

Traditional Western Hospitality since 1946

a common interest community of summer vacation homes & cabins at Granite Falls
located in the heart of the San Juan Mountains Lake City, Colorado

         An endangered species - Established in 1946. This western mountain townhome community is one of the few remaining unique cabin villages in the western Rockies which has original rustic log cabins dating from the 40s and as early as 1870. Their rough-hewn character and primitive, rustic nature gives them an enduring quality. Retreat into a small piece of pristine America - the unspoiled beauty & seclusion. Experience the clear mountain air, crystal clear water, and brilliant starry nights. The need to escape and return to a simpler life is of great importance to our well-being and vitality, so leave behind a complex, hectic lifestyle and return to a much simpler existence with our vacation rentals. Visit Lake City's website at Ask us about purchase opportunities and long-term rentals.

Various amenities: on river, view of waterfall, fireplaces, cable TV, trees and green belts, very scenic, hiking, fly fishing, winter snow, hunting, cabins, microwave, some washer/dryers, chalets and houses, high speed wireless internet cloud around office and convenience store.

      It's a way of experiencing the Rocky Mountain West that's all but disappearing from our society. A Texan Resort is a very special place in the highest county in "lower 48". Unique and comfortable 38 log cabins and homes among tall spruce, fir, aspen and cottonwood trees. Green lawns, 65 foot waterfall view and lots of flowers. Fire pit by the river. New basketball half-court, sand volleyball court. Thursday night cookouts and friendliness as honored traditions are why people return year after year (so reserve early for vacation rentals).
          Cabins: each cabin has from 1 to 5 queen/king beds, color cable TV, some with fireplaces. Our cabin village is a magical retreat in the midst of a national forest and wilderness areas in south central Colorado Rockies. The Lake Fork of the Gunnison River runs through it. The mountainsides are strewn with boulders, aspen, Douglas fir, Colorado blue spruce, mountain laurel, and sagebrush. Accessible by major highways yet remote from the nearest cities by one hour drive, Hinsdale County is the least populated county in Colorado with nearly 92% of the county accessible public lands. Free of the piles of stuff that endlessly accumulate in our surroundings and in our minds, there's nothing to do but relax and have fun activities.
          Once a week on request we have a shared campfire in the evening for barbeques, and other outdoor cooking treats - a magnet that attracts our cabin visitors to neutral ground, a place to gather and warm up on chilly nights in early spring and fall before the snow flies. Your neighbors may be bear, moose, deer, antelope, rabbits, chipmunks, ground squirrels, ducks, Canadian geese and several species of birds, eagles, owls, and falcons. With the increasing pace of modern life, the desire to escape and return to a simpler life has an even greater importance to our well-being and vitality. The cabin, a structure that in the past was a necessity, has now become a sanctuary, a place to escape from the rigors of everyday life and return to the land, even if only for a weekend. As you lazily sit back in a comfy, old chair and either look up at the dazzlingly bright stars or look into the flickering flames of your fire, you can't begin to imagine what life would be like without the elemental pleasures of a cabin retreat.

A Texan Resort is a strict non-smoking facility in our cabins and log homes. $250 special cleaning fee for policy violation.
