Upper Crossing Guard Station - A Great Southern Colorado Get Away!

Upper Crossing Guard Station outside Saguache, Colo. is available for rent year round and offers great accommodations in a rustic, rural setting. See for more info.
The cabin has a good propane heater as well as a wood stove in the fireplace. Electric lighting, running water and a shower in the bathroom make a stay here downright comfortable.  
The kitchen features a good sized refrigerator, electric stove, a microwave oven and a coffee maker. Just add groceries and enjoy! 
The cabin has two bedrooms with a couple of bunk-beds in back room and a single bunk-bed in the front room. The futon mattresses on these beds are always a little too thin so we bring self-inflating camping mattresses to add for a better night's sleep.  
Leave your cell phone, radio and laptop at home, there's no signals to operate any of them out here. Consider bringing alternatives such as newspapers, magazines and books instead.   
Sheep Creek runs through the property and is chock full of trout eager to take a fly.
This is cattle country so it's best to watch your back while beating the bushes.
Nearby Dome Reservoirs offer stocked rainbow, brown, brook and Snake River cutthroat trout in a remarkably scenic setting. 
Back at the cabin life is good just hanging out on the front porch.
The backyard offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
Western sunsets replace the nightly news.
And breakfasts are always better out out here.
