Colorado log cabin for sale

Meeker, Colorado

Like a few of the homes included in this lineup, this cabin sits on National Forest Service land. So you’re buying the cabin only and paying an annual lease fee to the service. Which means … you’re going to have to pay cash or finance the purchase of this place with a personal loan. But it might just be worth it. The cabin is located inside the White River National Forest, which means NO ONE is going to bug you, and although built in 1953, the home has been lovingly updated throughout the years.
