In harmony with the nature of retreats, each cabin is outfitted simply. All cabins have a single bed, a compact kitchen, an area for meditation practice with a shrine, and a sitting area with a small table and chair. All dishes, cooking utensils, pots and pans are provided, as is blue ice for the picnic-style cooler used for cold food storage. The cabins are equipped with a propane cook stove and solar powered lights. There is no electricity in the cabins but the central shower house has electricity for recharging electronic devices. An individual water hydrant with mountain spring water and an outhouse are near each cabin. The shrine area has a shrine box with a cloth backdrop, offering bowls, an incense burner and votive candle holders. Each cabin has meditation cushions and a practice table. The cabins have wood burning stoves for heat, although Dragon has a propane heater. A small porch on each cabin adds a comfortable place to sit outside. Split wood and propane are provided for each cabin.

Rigdzin cabin has three levels and includes a fenced yard and pet door to allow retreatants to bring a dog. It is also large enough to accommodate a couple with a queen size bed and a separate shrine room. It has a convenient solar powered electric refrigerator.

A central shower house with a refrigerator and freezer are a short walk from the cabins. Here retreatants can take showers according to a pre-arranged schedule and retrieve cold food items. There is a washing machine in the shower house and a bulletin board for notes and shopping lists.

As DKD borders the San Isabel National Forest, retreatants can take scenic walks or sit outside for some fresh air during their practice breaks.
