The Mountain Orchid
Our little cabin located on County Road 291, just 2 miles up the road from Mount Prinston Hot Springs Resort, is 140 years old. Back in the day of 1878 it was named the “Mary Mabel” which just so happens was the name of my Grandmother. Cabins were given name back than as the builder would live alone or with his family, working the mines of St. Elmo of Alpine searching for the precious gold that would sustain their livelihood through the harsh Winter. County Road 291 runs in front of the, still remains a dirt road that was well traveled by stagecoach back in the day. The cabin is one bedroom, a living room (which has a sofa bed) and a full kitchen. It has a bathroom/bath house this is located behind the cabin that features a claw-foot soaking bathtub.
