If you’re looking to get away from it all why rent a cabin in the country when you could own an entire town?

Just 45 minutes from Denver, Colorado, the town of Cabin Creek is up for sale on Craigslist for just $350,000.

“Just under 5 acres of property with the old Gas Station, 8 room Motel, Road Side Restaurant Cafe, 8 space RV Park, 2 Houses, and private shooting range,” reads the listing. “You will have over 500ft of Highway 36 frontage with 4 driveway entrances to draw in customers.”


The town used to be a bustling spot, but became a ghost town in the 1970s after a murder, according to ABC Radio. The current owner has gone to great lengths to insure top-notch security.

“I have installed 16 high definition Security Surveillance Camera’s covering the entire property,” he said in the post. “I have also installed alarm systems on the buildings and the property calls me when someone pulls off the Highway into the driveway.”

The reason for selling the unique parcel is simple: “We have some traveling we would like to do and this project keeps us here.”
