Pinewood Haven is a private, 10-acre, vacation rental and wedding venue located in the beautiful Wet Mountains, about 3 hours southwest of Denver on the outskirts of historical Westcliffe, CO. The property offers breathtaking views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains and beautiful sprawling meadows.
Pinewood Haven is the ideal place to relax and unwind after a long day of enjoying the mountains and other local attractions. At over 7,800 feet above sea level, Westcliffe offers clean air, wide open spaces, incomparable scenic beauty and some 300 square miles of public lands where one can enjoy hundreds of miles of trails, dozens of mountain lakes, and herds of wildlife, such as elk, deer, antelope and bighorn sheep. These lands are also home to the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness area, Deweese Reservoir and nearby Arkansas River. What’s more, the adjoining towns of Silver Cliff and Westcliffe offer some great restaurants and bars, fun shops, a thriving arts scene, historical attractions and nearly nonstop festivals and events during the summer months. Plus, the towns are situated away from the regional light pollution along the I-25 corridor, and the area’s small population, rural setting and limited outdoor lighting have kept the night skies over Westcliffe and Silver Cliff in relatively pristine condition, allowing it to be named an International Dark Sky Community — the first to attain this distinction in Colorado, the ninth in the world and the highest anywhere!
Pinewood Haven is the perfect spot for a one-of-a-kind vacation getaway, small mountain retreat, romantic escape or intimate destination wedding.

Although Westcliffe offers the necessities, such as gas stations, convenience stores, banks, restaurants, liquor stores, a hardware store, a medical center and a post office, you won’t find any large scale shopping or big box stores nearby. You are renting a cabin in the rural Rocky Mountains. Life moves slower here. Communication systems go down periodically, businesses come and go, we have a lot of area wildlife, the weather is unpredictable, wildfires and other unforeseen acts of God occur on occasion. Please pack your patience, just in case, and plan accordingly.
Pinewood Haven is located about 15-20 minutes south of Westcliffe off of a county-maintained road. Although the road to the cabin is dirt, it is well maintained and is easily passable year-round. A 4×4 is not generally necessary, but it’s a good idea in the winter.
There is a grocery store (Lowe’s) in the town of Westcliffe, 15-20 minutes from the cabin. Additionally, Westcliffe hosts a Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays during the summer months and there is an Ace Hardware, Family Dollar and Dollar General in town for other necessities. There is no pharmacy in Westcliffe or Silvercliff.
You may or may not get cell service at the cabin depending upon your carrier. That being said, we do have Internet service and basic satellite TV programming. Generally, both are reliable, however, our rural service DOES NOT support video streaming. Additionally, we have a home satellite phone for emergencies and domestic calls, just in case your phone doesn’t work at the property.
Pinewood Haven is a wonderful, peaceful place to get away from it all. However, it is at altitude (approx. 8,900 ft above sea level) and may not be appropriate for guests who suffer from altitude-related health issues. Stay hydrated!
Our home is not childproof and is, therefore, not suitable for toddlers. Additionally, we offer in-house dining and stocking options. Please ask us for more information. This property is available as a wedding/special event venue under separate contract. Contact Pinewood Haven directly for details.
