The Narnia Cabin is a great place to experience a laid-back mountain getaway: in the livingroom, old-style floor-to-ceiling, knotty-pine paneling complements its original, restored hardwood floors. The Ute Pass granite fireplace with its electric insert makes this getaway especially cozy; it feels just like an old ranchhouse, but with the added conveniences of satellite TV/DVD/VCR/CD, a video library, phone and high-speed DSL. Outside on the redwood deck, a propane grill and picnic tables furnish everything needed for outdoor barbecuing.

The Ranger Station's spacious kitchen welcomes you back to a real connection with great-grandma, sitting at the table over coffee or tea, chatting and keeping busy helping with dinner chores.  The dining table invites the family to eat the old-fashioned way – together, enjoying meals with the honest hunger that fresh mountain air brings on.  Food never tasted so good, nor sleep so deep and sweet, as in the embrace of this generous old house. In the livingroom, the 100+ year-old fireplace still works, and from the porch, you can watch deer feed in the front yard.
