Poncha Crest Cabins are designed with simplicity and sustainability in mind. The 475sf cabins are passive solar with the most up-to-date materials in building efficiency to reduce energy bills and consumption. The small building envelope allows a minimalist a clutter-free environment.

The neighborhood is a genuine Poncha Springs mountain town, small and quaint and in close proximity to the outdoors where recreation abounds. The cabins are nestled in the cottonwood trees surrounded by nature. 

A five minute walk, you will find the Disk Golf Course and hiking. A 20 minute drive takes you to Monarch Ski Area. And this is the start and end of the world famous Monarch Crest Biking trail. A short drive or walk will also take you to Vino Salida and Elevation Brewery and Mountain Bike Shuttle as well as some of the best Thai and Italian restaurants in town.


Angie Jenson:  Developer of Poncha Crest Cabins.  Inspired by her background in permaculture, sustainable living, love of nature, and entrepreneurial spirit.  

Angie's first business endeavor has been the owner and operator of Terra Firma Forestry, a professional forest care company that has been in business for 16 years.  Terra Firma Forestry employs 10-12 guys and gals who care for the trees and forests in Central Colorado.  The full-time arborcare crew and full-time forestry crews are made up of professional foresters, tree climbers, and arborists.

As a spiritual seeker, Angie has lived on a short-term basis in Costa Rica, Argentina, Peru, Cambodia, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Australia, Thailand, and India with the intent to seek spirituality and to volunteer and to learn.

When not working, you will usually find Angie out on her mountain bike utilizing Salida's incredible single track or a remote forest road exploring new territory in the vast expanse of public lands.  Often justifying these as "work-trips" to survey the health of the forests that she manages and stopping to dissect tree bugs.
