Thompson Cabin

This authentic miner’s cabin, a short six-mile drive from Cripple Creek, was originally built in the Ajax Mine on one of the lower levels as an office. In the 1940s, Joseph Thompson had it dismantled and rebuilt in the Athletic Field where the Gold Bowl baseball field is currently located. In 1996, it was moved from the Gold Bowl to its current location.

This cabin has been refurbished with antiques and is furnished in such a way as to retain its history. The Thompson Cabin is completely furnished for your comfort and is suitable for two. The kitchen has an 8′ counter with a double sink, microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot and dishes. There is a refrigerator as well as a stove with an oven. The cabin is equipped with both electric and propane heat. DirecTV is offered for your enjoyment.

Outside, enjoy a picnic table and benches. Sorry, no pets or indoor smoking.
