No electricity? No plumbing? No problem. Now THIS is off-the-grid living!

Originally featured in 2005, this 600-square-foot trapper’s cabin, may lack traditional amenities, but this tiny Colorado treasure is so charming it quickly became one of our staff’s all-time favorites. 

The Centennial Ranch Cabin is built with exceptional large-diameter logs, given its diminutive size. The 18-to-20-inch standing-dead spruce was harvested right from the land on which the cabin sits. Owner Vince Kontney carefully re-created the look and feel of a historic Western homestead.
