We stayed in the one room Snowshoe Cabin during our visit (no electric or private bath). It was perfect for our needs, right on the river, and with its own fire pit, patio and picnic table. The bathrooms were clean, and each bath was set up to be used by one person at a time. No need to share mirror, sink, etc... You had space to get dressed, hang towels and clothing. You are close to the neighboring cabin, but the river may drown out any noise. Other visitors were considerate during our visit, and we were too.
The general store and liquor store on site are very convenient with ice, firewood, basic food needs. They even carry a few local brands. It can be spotty as to when the store is actually open, so be prepared.
It's about 10-15 minutes to Paonia, under two hours to Crested Butte (36 miles) and about two hours to Black Canyon of the Gunnison. It was the perfect base for us to check out the area. There's no cell service in the area, which might get tricky in an emergency. The WiFi is included in your stay.
When we were planning our Colorado trip we knew the drive from Crested Butte on a Sunday during peak Fall colors would be a slow drive with part of it being dirt also. Found this place on the internet. It was the perfect spot! We stayed 3 nites in the Doc Holiday cabin. They've done a fantastic job refurbishing the cabin. Loved the doors going into the bedroom & all the wood throughout the cabin. The deck with sun sail & posh deck furniture really extends the living space. We used this as our base for exploring the area such as Paonia & High Country News
We ran into the owners/proprietors of Kebler Corner by chance while stopped in Paonia for lunch last week, after hearing a little about their property we decided to stay with them rather than at Paonia State Park (which had been our initial plan).
To say that we were happy with this decision would be an understatement, the property is really quite unique in comparison with anything else I've experienced in Colorado.
They're able to accommodate travelers' needs regardless of whether one is looking to camp in a tent (as we were), to park an RV with full hookups, or stay in a cabin or hotel-style room. I don't recall ever having run across a situation with such a wide variety of lodging options, Kebler Corner would be *ideal* for a situation such as a family reunion or a large meet-up of friends where there are a variety of different situations which might need to be accommodated.
The property is stunningly beautiful and is located very conveniently between Carbondale, Crested Butte and Paonia. Full grocery service can be had within a relatively short drive, while daily needs such as ice, snacks and cold drinks can be obtained at the on-site store.
The drive to Crested Butte over Kebler pass is one of the most beautiful routes in the state of Colorado, and I'd say much the same about the drive over McClure pass to Carbondale. Both of these roads are very lightly trafficked, and provide travelers the hard to find feeling of isolation for which Colorado has historically been known.
I look forward to another stay when we have more time to spend, as the opportunities for hiking, biking, fishing and exploring are all pretty well unsurpassed by anywhere else I can think of in Colorado!
