Stay The Night At This Secluded Colorado Hut Before Word Gets Out
You have camped in Rocky Mountain National Park more times than you can count, splurged on glamping at
Dunton Hot Springs, and have maybe even stayed the night in the Stanley Hotel’s haunted room 217… what is next? While there are plenty of amazing accommodations and campgrounds hiding throughout the Centennial State, we recommend your next stop be a rustic hut. Where do you find one of these backcountry dwellings? Check this out:
Nestled along Boreas Pass near Breckenridge is the historic Section House cabin.
Built in 1882, the Section House was originally a home for nearby Denver, South Park, and Pacific railroad workers and their families, and served in this capacity until the route was abandoned in the 1930s.
Sadly, after the railroad and home were abandoned, the Section House began to decay and collapse until the 1990s, when both the US Forest Service and the Colorado Historic Society teamed up to restore and renovate the property.
In 1997, the Section House was open for business and began welcoming skiers, hikers, and other guests who wanted to spend the night in this beautiful and historic area!
When you visit today, you will not only find the original exterior still intact, but many charming interior features like a cozy wood-burning stove...
...Rustic wooden walls...
...And beautiful antique furnishings.
In addition to all of the above, the Section House can comfortably sleep 12 and boasts access to some of the best outdoor recreation in the state!
The Section House starts at $35 per person/per night and can be booked via the Summit Huts Association's
Address: Breckenridge, CO 80424
