Tiny Round Cabin In Hotchkiss, Colorado: The Solargon


I don’t know what it is about round homes, but I adore them! This particular octagonal structure was inspired by a triad of home designs: the Mongolian yurt, Navajo hogons and Native American hidatsa lodges. The result is a perfect vacation spot in Colorado dubbed the “Solargon.”

The interior has a studio-style setup, complete with a leather sofa, comfortable queen bed, and functional kitchenette. Then there’s a separate bathroom complete with a shower stall with “barnwood” tile.

But you really can’t beat the location — tucked in a corner of 40 private acres which abuts BLM land on two sides with mountain views. Book your stay here.

      There is an outlet on the bathroom wall and a lamp by the bed, so I am guessing maybe you can have electrical devices but there may not be WiFi. 😃

    What a nice getaway. Would love a place like this — along with camoflage (ie. fake greenery on the walls) to hide it from view, but that’s just me. 🙂

    Maybe it is just me, but…didn’t see a plug by the sink, which is where I would plug in hair dryer ( which they provide), curling iron, electric razor, et al…but there is an out
    Et between the toilet and shower. Does anyone else hear a ZAP and getting a shock? 🤪
