    This property was a quiet, comfortable and secure location for a dirt bike vacation. It was clean and comfortable. A much better option than a hotel. A safe spot to leave your bike while you went to dinner or out for beers. Guests were polite respectful of your privacy. I did my laundry while I was there and had everything I needed to be comfortable. The only thing that wasn’t there was a TV. I didn’t really miss it. Great internet though. I will stay again.

  • Beautiful quiet cabin


    The house is very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The owner has gone to great lengths to be a great host. The home has more than everything you need-she has thought of everything! Perfect for a quiet holiday from home.

  • Lovely in every way!


    This sweet cottage was exactly the peaceful spot I wanted for this visit to Colfax. The setting is lovely! That back deck is heavenly! Everything I needed in the kitchen was handy. The hosts are available if you need them but not at all intrusive. Checking in and out was easy. Highly recommend!!!
