I recently bought a cabin in Hesperus, Colorado. I love it thus far. I intend on making upgrades to it, including meditation gardens. I will be documenting the changes here on my blog. I’m a green thumb and am super excited about the greenhouse. I also don’t mind the sauna and jacuzzi.
Oh! I also have a big huge pond! Pics of that coming.
I purchased all of the internal furniture on Facebook Marketplace for $2,630. Including a baby grand Wang Chung.
I will be bringing in solar panels to provide energy source for both home and pond.
A few months ago my husband and I visited Manresa Castle. It was such a fun experience and the staff was good about giving me a quick tour. I received a bounce-back discount (as do all customers who stay at the castle) that allowed me 50% off so my girlfriends and I decided to take the “haunted” castle for a special spin.

The Rooftop Access
The first visit I was here I noticed the Roof Access Door. Locked. It had a window above it with a mechanism to open. Didn’t work. I know. I tried three times. I asked Lindsey about this as we passed the door again, telling her I had previously attempted. She informed me the door had been locked for years.
So I turned the knob and it opened. She looked a bit taken aback, her surprise didn’t seem feigned. Excited I opened the door to find a light socket on the right and a set of very dusty stairs that went up and then turned left. I headed halfway up the stairs before Lindsey stopped me and told me she needed to go first as it may be hazardous. I asked her to take my camera and photograph the scene after she turned the stairs. The bottom picture is hers. After you turn left, the stairs go up to a completely open hole to the exterior. She wouldn’t let me go because of the stairs had holes. She didn’t walk to the open window either. It looked like there used to be a window there.
When I asked the gal at the front desk she reported a windstorm had blown off that window some time before.
I did not see the basement in my previous visit so I was pretty excited when Lindsey told me she’d take us down there. The laundry room is down there. Lindsey also showed me the original brickwork and then allowed me access to the crawl space under the castle. It was pretty big crawl space, I was able to stand in it.
