  • Beautiful quite cabin in the woods


    This cabin is great! Location is close enough to town but far from the crowds. 15-20 minutes to Lyons, 45 from Estes Park. The cabin had plenty of room for our family of 4, comfortable beds and everything we needed for our 5 days in Colorado. No AC but plenty of windows and every bedroom has a ceiling fan, weather was hot in early August but cabin cooled off nicely at night for sleeping. Would definitely stay again if we go back to the area.

  • Woodsy Getaway


    The cabin is perfect for a getaway to the woods. It's very large and accommodating. With comfortable beds and multiple bathrooms there is plenty of space. The only negatives are 1) no air conditioning in peak summer heat meant that it was too hot to sleep upstairs even with fans on high and windows open to maximize airflow, 2) we had several moths get inside and die while we were there, even with trying to close the door quickly, they still snuck in through screens in the always open windows, and 3) the road to the cabin is a narrow, bumpy dirt road and a very steep gravel drive up to the cabin. Be very aware of that if you're taking a rental car, some options might not make it! None of this stopped us from having a fantastic stay, enjoying far more stars than we can see at home, numerous hummingbirds visiting the (provided) feeders, and having meals out among the trees with truly gorgeous views of the forest around.
