Use our empty lots next door to access the stairs down to the stream. We have a "secret" rocky stairway there ... just walk through our empty lot from the driveway.
We will issue an access code for the side door (our main entry). Our housekeeper (Donna) may swing by if she is in the Garfield area. I will eventually need your mailing address to send you our reservation confirmation, driving directions, and the key code.
We are located in the small mining town of Garfield. Bordered by the national forest. Looking for 5 star accommodations and internet? Our vacation home is not for you. Last summer a bear tried to get into the trash can at night. Please keep ALL food smells contained (use snap lid containers or the fridge). The clothes washer and dryer are sturdy commercial units, and THEY NEED QUARTERS TO OPERATE. Bring quarters !!!
