We were so impressed with every aspect of our stay at the Bear Ridge Cabin. I guess I'll start with the location itself, in which the cabin is located. When planning our stay, amongst the varying criteria, the location was a major deciding factor in which cabin we decided on. The Bear Ridge Cabin couldn't have been more perfectly placed! We wanted something centrally located, NOT smack dab in the middle of the hustle and bustle, yet close enough that we're not driving an hour or more if we decided to grab dinner or needed something from the market. So in this category (location) the Bear Ridge Cabin gave us the peacefully quiet retreat we sought. The drives to the neighbouring tourist destinations (Breckenridge, Leadville, Denver, South Park etc) were also very manageable and could easily be reached in around 2 hours or less.
As a minor side note, the last 30 minutes of the drive heading into the cabin from Elkhorn Rd, via highway 285, is all dirt. While we did have the luxury of all-wheel-drive, in our Forester, we felt that either a front or rear wheel drive vehicle, could easily traverse the dirt roads with relative ease.
Once we arrived and got settled into the cabin, we quickly realized that Jane, the owner had literally thought of everything when outfitting this cabin with all the amenities and creature comforts that her guests would need during their stay. Basically what it boils down to is, so long as you bring food, clothing and toiletries, you'll soon realize Jane has taken care of literally just about every other item you would or could need during your stay. She has even gone so far as to pull together all the relevant information regarding your stay and how to make the most of it, along with what is expected of and required from you during the check-in and checkout times, then compiled everything in one easy to understand three ring folder.
Overall we had an absolute blast and it is very apparent that Jane genuinely wants her guests to have the best Colorado cabin experience that they possibly can and she will do everything within her abilities to see to it that this happens. Best of luck to those of you planning your vacation, I hope this review of our stay assists you in setting up yours! And Jane once again you were a phenomenal hostess and we absolutely can't wait to come out and do it again!!
