Cottonwood Cabin is a restored, hand-hewn log, split-level cabin. It was used as the old Cottonwood Lakes post office at the turn of the century, and then moved (by horse train) to its current location around 1920. The addition was built on site, as was the quartz fireplace. The aging owner, Alma Cowgill, hand-built the fireplace after being unimpressed with the mason’s initial attempts.
Though smaller than Hortense, most people find that Cottonwood has a magical charm that you can’t quite put your finger on.
Large, square-cut timbers
A large, quartz stone fireplace
Private soaking pool on patio
This is a two-level cabin. A five-step staircase connects upstairs living room and bedroom to downstairs kitchen, bath and bedroom.
The Cabin sits on a meadow along the creek for great wildlife viewing!

(Depending on spring flow, the pool may not be totally full upon arrival but you can certainly soak! The pool should be full by 4pm.)
