The Single King Cabins sleep 2 adults and 2 children (ages 12 and under). Double King Cabins sleep 4 adults and 2 children (ages 12 and under).

Single Queen Glamping Tents accommodate 2 guests. Double Queen Glamping Tents accommodate 4 guests.

Maximum occupancy in each cabin / unit is enforced, and we do not allow guests to bring their own air mattresses to increase bed space.

Check in is 4 PM. Check out time is 11 AM.

Our Glamping Tents are quite comfortable with high quality mattresses, linens and pillows. You’ll also find an evaporative cooler for summer cooling, multiple power outlets, and lighting.

However, this is still camping! There is no running water and no bathroom in the tents. Our shower house with hot showers and flush toilets is open 24 hours a day, and is located from 100 to 350 feet away from the Glamping tents.

Although our climate here is fairly dry we still see some insects, so bringing along insect repellent is a good idea. Also, the pesky bugs will fly into your tent if you leave doors open. Remember, you’re still camping – just in a slightly more glamorous style than the days of old!

Absolutely. Each cabin has it’s own dedicated high speed Wi-Fi. Directions to access Wi-Fi are provided inside the cabins.

We do not allow pets in any of our cabins or glamping tents. There is a pet boarding facility about a mile from the cabins. Eight Mile Ranch pet boarding can be reached at 719-275-2035.

Our check in office is staffed until 8 PM from Memorial Day weekend through the middle of August. The rest of the year the check in office is open until 6 PM. Please let us know at the time of making your reservation if you will need to check-in late and we will make arrangements for you.

Our cabins are sitting at about 6,300 feet in elevation. Weather can change quickly around here, but generally in the summer months we see high temperatures reaching the 90’s and lows in the 50’s. During winter months daytime high temperatures average in the 30’s with lows well below freezing. We see very low humidity year round, and therefore very few, if any, mosquitos and bugs. Summer storms can come in fast so bring a rain jacket for most outings, especially in the afternoon when rain is more likely.

We do not allow smoking in any of our rentals. This includes tobacco, vapor, or any other form of smoking. Smoking is not permitted within 25 feet of the cabins to prevent smoke from entering cabins through doors / windows. Violation of this policy will incur a $250 fee. Be aware that during fire bans the only location where smoking is allowed is inside your vehicle. Please dispose of extinguished cigarette butts in the provided containers located at designated smoking areas.

We are located 1 hour and 15 minutes from the Colorado Springs airport. This is the nearest major airport yet is small enough that check-in, rental cars and security are very easy! Denver International Airport is about 2 hours and 30 minutes from our cabins.

Canon City is located just 8 miles east of the cabins on Highway 50. You’ll find several options to stock up on food and drinks.

You bet! The galley style kitchenette includes an apartment size refrigerator, a 2 burner flat top range, sink, microwave, dishwasher, glasses and stemware, dinnerware and flatware, as well as pots and pans. Please note the kitchens do not include an oven.

Breakfast and meals are not included in the cost of the rental. Please see our dining page to learn about operating hours for our full-service restaurant open seasonally.

We do not offer room service. However, our 8 Mile Bar & Grill does offer carryout.

The nearest dining is just across the road at our 8 Mile Bar & Grill which operates seasonally beginning in May and closing in September. It’s a full-service restaurant with excellent freshly prepared meals, as well as a bar serving cocktails, wine and 16 draft beers (with an emphasis on Colorado micro-brews). A number of other restaurants are available in Canon City located 8 miles east of the cabins.

Our luxury cabins were completed in spring 2017, so they are very new, clean and quite nice!
