Spruce Ridge Guest Cabin
What a blessing it has been to have found you and this wonderful place. We loved the llama trek. I think it is one of our favorite things ever that we've done as a family. Thank you for taking us through the aspen woods, meadow with wildflowers and all the woods. This time has truly been a time of spiritual refreshment and there is a peace here. Thank you for your vision of this cabin and for the llama treks. I think this will be the first vacation that will cause tears at leaving.
This has been a wonderful spot for birdwatching. We identified 28 species of birds while we were here including six we had not seen before.
The cabin was lovely and the creek was soothing.
