Some prefer to run dry good or make leather goods (such as harnesses for the horses). Unfortunately, there is not enough farmland to go around.

The community was not very happy, but there was nothing illegal or immoral about what the farmer did. Most farmers try to keep the land in the family. That means the older sons need to find a way to support their families. They might get home at eleven o’clock at night!

What is happening more and more often now is the formation of new communities. It’s a relatively new community in a geographic area with few tourists and lots of inexpensive land. It sure cleared up the farminng question for me. His title is executive producer, but he prefers to be known as a filmmaker. She showed us the requirements of her new house with pride; the walk-in pantry lined with food, her beautiful root cellar lined with preserves, and her blender garage. No one can force me to use electricity, or even get the home connected to it.

The store caters to local residents as well as tourists. A children's corner showcases furniture and toys built for the little ones and there is a wide variety of lodge, western and fishing home décor. A variety of 13 flavors of homemade jams including strawberry rhubarb, pineapple and red raspberry jalapeño, are available every day. For more information, call the store at 275-1022. It's fine to have differences of opinion, but there's no need to act like a jerk. Our was built for our relaxation (my wife is still active duty) and our children's enjoyment.

I need mountains, and there's a mountain view out of every single window in the cabin; north, south, east and west. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the latest appliances and utensils. The bedrooms are furnished with log beds that accent the cabin feel. The cabin is gently heated with in-floor radiant heat on the first and second floor, electric baseboard heat in the basement. The sauna is perfect for relaxing after a long day's hike. It's lined with redwood, heats quickly, easily seats several adults, and has a changing area nearby. The main floor bath has a rain shower and heated air jets in the tub. A short while after sunset it is also possible to see satellites moving overhead, if you know how to distinguish them from aircraft. Your kids can play on our big treehouse that features a cargo net climb, and monkey bars. But don't let the many activities fool you, the cabin is in a very sparsely populated, but beautiful, valley. Located on a well-maintained dead-end dirt road, there is very little traffic that goes by the cabin. There is a cell phone tower on the mountain nearby, so that you have some communication with the outside world if that is what you want, as well as a satellite internet connection (if you are unfamiliar with satellite connections, they are slower than broadband). But the cabin will make you want to shut off the phone and just sit and relax. Sit on the large covered porches as you watch the deer and other wildlife graze on the land, or listen to the coyotes call at night. Play in the treehouse, relax in the sauna, or just let the stress of life disappear in our mountain retreat.

We have four children, all who love being at the cabin when we can make it. During the spring, the views are of lush green grasses and leaves. The fall turns the valley golden as the ranches bring in the hay, and the aspens that fill the mountainsides turn yellow beneath the snow-capped peaks.


Gorgeous Cabin with Sauna Overlooking San

In the winter we get snows that only occasionally are heavy at the cabin, but are massive further up the two mountain ranges to the east and west. If you have an interest in viewing the night sky in all it's glory, this is the valley to do it in. It is satellite, so not as fast as most areas with hardwire. Otherwise, some phones get bars, others don't. The main floor bath has a rain shower and heated jets in the tub. This is a beautiful and relaxing place for a vacation!

We especially enjoyed watching birds and wildlife from the wrap-around porch, and we were treated to spectacular sunsets every evening. Our stay was effortless, everything listed was available and ready for us. If you want to relax, this is the place for that, and a view to match. Depending what activities you are wanting, it may take an hour or two drive to get there, but the rental itself was awesome. The grandchildren enjoyed the sandbox and finding the tree house. It was a great place to just get away and spend time together. Our kids have outgrown the sandbox, it's great to hear others are enjoying it and the tree house (no one outgrows a tree house!). Extremy family friendly and exactly as advertised. This home was extremely comfortable and clean which is important for someone with severe asthma and allergies. When we arrived at the home it was dark and you could not tell that you are surrounded by mountains. But when we woke up it was a surreal experience to look out the windows and see the view all around the cabin.

We enjoyed every moment even though we did not leave the cabin but did sit outside on the porch even though it was cold.

You just cannot resist to sit out there and take in the view surrounding the area.


Dear Sarah

We have three boys and they enjoyed the home, as well as the tree house. Loved the house and especially love the 360degree views!

The house was beautiful, secluded, with gorgeous views!

Pets are not allowed, as our son has an allergy to pets. Fred is hired as a driver for the family, because their lifestyle does not allow them to operate cars. The growing season is short at an average of 7, 500 feet above sea level. And though snow graces the mountains, irrigation is needed because little rain falls on the tabletop-flat expanse. Some have drawn on skills they brought with them, such as repairing wagons and building furniture, and others have developed new vocations such as commercial baking and operating a store. That settlement includes about 30 families today. They also don’t have retirement plans to fund, relying on family and community in old age. That area is really congested, and in such a large community, there aren’t many jobs available.

Some also do piecework, lacing and gluing of high-end sheepskin boots. He recalls almost falling out of his chair. The men wear suspenders, broad-brimmed hats and beards, with clean-shaven upper lips. The women are attired in white prayer caps, solid-color dresses and aprons. They don’t allow ownership of motorized vehicles but may ride in cars and use public transportation. Instead they rely on propane, batteries or solar power for their appliances.

A solar panel covers the dish, which must be moved by hand to track the sun. But they do allow cellphones for safety and business reasons and phones in shanties outside. They emphasize values such as simplicity, community, separation of church and state, pacifism and lay leadership. They selectively use technology, choosing types that serve their community rather that detract from it. Rules for what is accepted are largely determined by the local church district, so there is wide variation. They fear the car would pull their community apart with ownership encouraging people to drive away from home often and giving youths easier access to cities. The horse and buggy also is a symbol of their separation from the larger world. They typically end formal schooling at the end of eighth grade. Over the last century, many have turned to nonfarm work such as family owned shops. They avoid hooking up to the electrical grid because of a belief that doing so will lead to a dependence on the outside world. On one recent day, a woman wearing a black apron, bonnet and long sleeves sat outside reading in one of the hand-crafted chairs advertised for sale. His older son and daughter both married and moved to nearby farms. Hurry, please, need to at least 2-3 estimates.

We bought for our living room and a bedroom set!

Honesty and integrity are the haulmark of their work!!

Obviously they are very proud of their product!

It also sells stationery, mixes and packaged foods of all kinds, and hand-woven rugs made by the women in the family who run the store. And some find a partner when young people come for the summer to work … and just never leave.

I can’t wait to go back—but for now, it will have to be in the pages of my books!

Apparently folks just drive whatever buggy they arrived in when they moved here. So grab a cup of coffee and stay for a while. Beautiful hand crafted furniture in a beautiful setting. However my parents have an 8-person dining room table from here and it is immaculate. Wonderfully crafted with precision and artistry. Glad this type of quality is not a lost art. The table is a couple of years old and has withstood a lot of meals and game play by adults and children alike which speaks volumes to its durability. If you're looking for high quality, hand-made furniture definitely make the drive!

It would rate five stars if it had a little indoor seating area so you did not have to eat in your car or take it back to the hotel.

You will leave with a smile on your face.

I opted to get him one here, great decision!!!

We got one of everything, from muffins to turnovers and breakfast burritos, and loved it all. The breakfast burrito was super tasty with a little kick, and made for a great (and cheap) breakfast. Bakery from our friends, and it is as good as they said!

Everything we ordered was delicious and out of this world. Good canned salsa and other canned goods.
