General Info

The Bonnie Belle Cabin is a 1200 square foot, two story, 3 bedroom backcountry cabin located in the heart of the San Juan Mountains, 15 miles north of Silverton, Colorado.  The cabin itself sits at 12,000 feet above sea level in Picayune Gulch overlooking the Animas River headwaters and the historic ghost town of Animas Forks.  Your trip to the Bonnie Belle should be looked at as an adventure, not just a place to lay your head.  The views are second to none, and it is truly a one of a kind property with a one of a kind experience.  No client is too big or small, and we will cater to any of your special needs, so please just ask.

Activities

There is plenty to do year round, with nearby 14,000 foot tall peaks to climb, fishing, hiking, biking, jeeping and four wheeling, hunting, skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling to name just a few.  Its a great place to host an event, have a hut trip with good friends or just get away with the family.

Accessing the cabin

The Bonnie Belle Cabin can be accessed year round.  Typically May through October access is by 4×4 vehicle, ATV, dirt bike, or on foot.  In the winter months of November through April, access is by foot, snowmobile or helicopter through Silverton Mountain.

Additional Summer Access

If accessing with a standard vehicle, four wheel drive will be required.  A Subaru or similar all wheel drive vehicle will not make it.  You will not be able to tow a trailer to the cabin.  Being comfortable driving on mountain 4×4 roads is essential!

Additional Winter Access

Access via snowmobile will require digging!  Access in the winter will require travel through avalanche terrain.  Experience is required!  Please check the Colorado Avalanche info Center before traveling to the cabin in the winter for the latest weather and avalanche forecast.  Backcountry experience is required in the winter.
