Roberts Cabin

The exact date of construction of Robert's Cabin cannot be determined, but local sources state that it was a barn or stable, and F.B. Robert's added the second floor to it converting it into a residence in the 1880's. The cabin was also used as a blacksmith's shop and stables.

This cabin dates to the 1880's and is associated with the development of the Denver South Park and Pacific Railroad. This site is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The cabin is convenient to Breckenridge, Fairplay and Como. There is a railroad roundhouse being restored in Como. Winter recreation opportunities are plentiful as are summer hiking trails. The Colorado Trail passes nearby.

In 1993 the USDA Forest Service, Pike National Forest, South Park Ranger District and partnerships started reconstruction on the Robert's Cabin.

This historical cabin, located on the east side at the base of Boreas Pass, will be available for rent at $50.00 per night from June 1 through October 20.
