  • Adorable, comfortable retreat


    Very quaint cabin, quirky and unique in all the right ways. Plenty of space for our family of 7. Loved laying around playing games in front of the wood stove on chilly evenings. Felt very at home.

  • Great location / Cozy Ambiance


    Great stay! Super clean and excellent location. Manager was quick to respond to our requests regarding the TV streaming the Super Bowl. Super close to Sunlight Resort and town. The kitchen was thoughtfully stocked for all of our cooking needs. We will be back.

  • Great Mountain Getaway


    From the moment we walked in the door, we were impressed with this charming, cozy cabin/home. The photos online don't do it justice--it's not as rustic as you'd expect. From stained glass windows, beautiful hardwood floors, comfortable furniture, modern appliances, genuine crystal stemware, fully stocked kitchen with all necessary cookware and utensils, very comfortable beds with high quality linens and duvets, interesting book selection, plenty of dried and split firewood, TVs in every bedroom, and an ample supply of plush towels, there are pleasant surprises at every turn. There's even a piano in the living room, and a Yamaha ATV for guests to use!

    The location was terrific for us. Although it's a 1/2 mile up a winding road off the main road between Glenwood Springs and Sunlight Ski Resort, which could be tricky if there were a heavy snowfall (unfortunately, there was very little new snow during our ski week), the road is well-maintained. The cabin is a short 10-minute drive to Sunlight, and about 15 minutes to Glenwood Springs for groceries, libations, restaurants, the hot springs, and 'most anything else you'd need.

    And then there's the view: the grandeur of Mt. Sopris looms at the far end of a scenic valley, and the night sky is awesome. The thoughful owners even provide a telescope for guests to use. Imagine that!

    Upon arrival, it looked clean, but it was very apparent that things were not kept up very well like the stove and kitchen supplies. Everything in the house seems to be an antique and secondhand (which is charming don’t get me wrong) including maybe a couch and chairs and a rug that were really dirty/stained/shabby where you wanted to put a blanket on them before sitting on them. The kitchen chairs also were stained and dirty and one seat wasn’t attached to the frame and my 4 year old fell through. Not a huge deal but I think for the price I anticipated it being a little bit better kept. However, it is what the description says a very rustic house on top of a mountain. I think the rustic nature made a musty smell in the house that stayed with you throughout the day and my family can “rough it” but it was almost nauseating at first. Maybe in the summer with the windows open it’s better. There was a beeping when we arrived but the host was quick to respond. She actually had to come over a second time because the Wi-Fi wasn’t working. However, she helped very quickly and fixed it. The host was great. The views were spectacular. There was heat and water and really overall had OK stay.
