The Elk-A-Way is a true log home mountain experience. A quiet location sitting on 5 acres of private land that backs to National Forest and Boulder County Open Space. Hiking, biking, x-country skiing and snowshoeing are right outside your door!
A short 10 minute drive will get you to Eldora skiing area, a great variety of restaurants and shops in Nederland and a huge expanse of more mountain activities including fishing, back-country skiing, Golden Gate State Park, Indian Peak Wilderness and only 20 minutes to casinos in Black Hawk.
Continue your adventure with a scenic 35-minute drive to Boulder; where you will enjoy a food and art utopia. Bring back your treasures and creative ideas to the serene quiet of the mountains to watch elk, moose and wild turkeys wander through your yard.
End your day by relaxing and enjoying the magnificent views from one of the 3 decks that surround the house or, in the winter, enjoy a warm beverage in the large great room while listening and watching a gentle snow fall.
We are having such a great time! Skiing was great and we loved Eldora. Celebrating Christmas here was so wonderful; we hiked all around. What a wonderful place you have!
This is a beautiful home nestled in a secluded forest with beautiful views and hiking. The home is spotless, with every thing you could need. A great mountain feel with everything that a family would need for a family vacation. Would recommend highly. Very easy process with owners - response and attentive to questions. Would highly recommend.
This location was just perfect, especially for my out-of-state friends. A great taste of mountain living in Colorado. We loved it. The turkey flock made it particularly specially, showing up from time to time. And the view at the top of the ridge was spectacular! Thank you. This will be a definite repeat.
What a wonderful, unique home Elk A Way is! The house was clean and had all the amenities we needed; in particular, we loved the convection oven and the master bed on the third floor was very comfy! There was plenty of wood for the wood burning stove, and the heaters were effective for those bedrooms that needed them. Everyone was quite comfortable!
We enjoyed our son’s spring break vacation here with eight college boys and my husband and I. The location allowed those who wanted to ski or snow-board to do so easily close-by at Eldora. Then, those who wanted to hike found trails and snow shoe rentals right in Nederland. We drove two different times to Rocky Mountain National Park (1.25 hours away) and did some serious snow shoe hiking! It was beautiful and fun! The evenings were relaxing for all…the guys hogged all the wi-fi bandwidth gaming down in the lower level.
Nederland is a funky little mountain town with a great grocery store and a few good restaurants, as well. The pizza place was pretty good—the boys went there three times!
Marcus, the owner, could not have been more helpful and kind. Thank you, thank you, for helping the boys get their car pulled back up onto the road after they went off the shoulder during a sudden snow storm on the last night of our stay! That was very helpful and saved the boys so much time and money not having to wait on and pay for a tow truck!
We would highly recommend this property!

We couldn't be happier! Our family enjoyed the "Elk" cabin so much, it was like being at home for the holidays. The listing was more than we expected. Very clean, well maintained, everything we needed was provided and the owner was very accommodating...he even provided a fresh cut Christmas tree at our request and checked in to assure all was good. We loved the wood burning stove, the views, and remote location. We definitely would recommend this little piece of heaven, Home Away from Home, to our friends and family and would love to return ourselves. We also enjoyed the little town of Nederland. Thank you Markus.
Great house in a unique location that is central to many great outdoor activities. This place was exactly what we were looking for, in a great location. Plenty of space for all of our crew and some nice hikes just outside the door. Very positive experience working with Markus and an exceptional place to stay. Will hopefully be back soon!
We loved the house, the setting and views. This was the perfect location for children to play safely outside the house complete with teepee's, a sandbox and lots of toys and games in the house. We will definitely come back again!
