A cabin where author Hunter S. Thompson wrote some of his famous works in Colorado is available to rent on Airbnb for $550 per night.

Thompson's widow Anita is renting out his lodge on the Owl Farm compound, just outside Aspen, where the writer worked up until his death in 2005.

In April, she made the writer’s cabin available to support the Hunter S Thompson scholarship for veterans at Columbia University, where they both studied.
