SPECTACULAR FAMILY CHALET WITH STUNNING ROCKY MOUNTAIN VISTA

Heeney Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This 35-acre property includes a grand log chalet situated at 8900 feet above sea level.

The top floor, one large room with a vaulted ceiling, boasts picture windows facing the Gore Range. The wood burning stove generously heats this level. A propane furnace provides additional heat for the whole house. The living room area has several couches (one of which is a sofa-sleeper) and a sky chair. The dining table seats 10 people. The kitchen is large and well equipped with counter space for preparing sizable meals. There is also a half-bathroom on this floor.

On the middle level there are four bedrooms, which sleep 8 (2 queens, 1 double and 2 singles that may be combined to make a king). There is a full bathroom with shower/bathtub on this floor.

This is a kid friendly property equipped with toys, books, movies, entertainment system with satellite radio and a ping-pong table.

A large solar system provides most of the heat and hot water for a reduced carbon footprint. There is propane and electricity for the utilities. Laundry facilities are available on the bottom level if needed.

The deck wraps around 2/3 of the upper level for sunbathing, bird watching, sunrise and sunset viewing. There is a propane grill on the deck for convenient outdoor cooking. In addition, you can enjoy meals on the deck at a wooden picnic table. Just below the house is a fire ring and additional picnic table for cookouts.

From the hammock on the deck you can view the Gore Range, Green Mountain Reservoir, and the Williams Fork Range. Deer, elk, and fox are common visitors. Nightfall brings stargazing and the occasional coyote chorus. Songbirds, hummingbirds, eagles, and hawks are often seen.

In winter, the chalet's location is ideal for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and excellent sledding. Alpine skiing and snowboarding are available at Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone and A-Basin, all within an hour. Vail, Steamboat Springs, and Winter Park are each about 2 hours away.There is Gold Medal fishing on the Colorado and Blue Rivers, and belly-boating on Cataract Lake. The chalet is surrounded by aspens, so the fall is an exceptional time to visit. There is access to various wilderness areas for sportsmen looking for a comfortable base.

Lower Cataract Lake is a short drive away during the summer months. When there is snow, it can be reached with snowshoes or cross-country skis via the road. A number of trail-heads begin in that area for day hikes or camping. The wild flowers are spectacular in spring and summer and the aspen foliage is golden in the fall. The cataract itself is also worth exploring.

The location is solitary, serene and private on 35 acres of woodland and sage brush meadows with wildlife as your nearest neighbors.

Well behaved pets are welcome.

Please don't smoke inside.

This is a perfect property for a small family get-together or a place to return to after a day of hiking, fishing or hunting.

Winter access can be more difficult even with with snow plowing, so contact us directly for more information.

We designed and built this chalet, using standing dead lodge pole logs. Our 4 children grew up using this place many times a year, summer and winter. We are now retired, and the children are married and living scattered around the country. We come here about twice a month, bringing our dog and 2 cats with us.

Jason Gilman purchased this cabin in 1980

We built the chalet as our vacation retreat, and now would like to share it with others.

Solitude, serenity, love of the mountains, and enjoyment of the wildlife.

FABULOUS FOUR DAYS.

  • 5 of 5
We spent four days here and love every minute. The cabin was spotless, beautiful and had everything we needed and more. The owners left detail information every where which help us. The view was breath taking. We had late night games at the table. We will for sure use the cabin again.

GREAT HOUSE IN BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family reunion here with nine adults and a dog. The house was just as described: clean, well organized, stocked full of staples, and in a gorgeous location. And you can't beat the price! We had a lovely dinner on the deck one night, enjoyed the hammock, played horseshoes, had a campfire at the outdoor fire ring, and enjoyed two days of boating -- one at the reservoir, and one on nearby beautiful Cataract Lake. The owners were very easy to work with and responsive throughout the process. Our only complaint is that the walls on the middle floor, where the bedrooms are, were a bit thin. But, that's nothing that can't be fixed by setting up a fan or bringing earplugs. We definitely hope to stay here again!

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5
This chalet was wonderful!! It was tucked away from anyone, but still close enough to get to easily and quickly!! We brought several children, and it was perfect!! The pictures were accurate, but the view and the home were better!! The home was excellently maintained, very clean, and had anything you could want or need. We hope to be back soon!! Would definitely recommend!!

AWESOME GETAWAY WITH NATURE AND FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
Honestly, just read the title, and it tells you the whole picture! My husband and I loved LOVED this chalet- amazingly cool log cabin......the atmosphere is so relaxed and peaceful. Swaying in the hammock on the deck looking out at the views, making barbecues, exploring, making freinds with hummingbirds, and enjoying our stay at this amzing cabin!
I would also highly recommend Cataract lake and its hikes around the lake and the rushing brook through the hike! wonderful fun! all in all, thank you Jason and family, was a great vacation spot!

BEST FAMILY VACATION!

We had a family reunion at the Green Mountain Community Center and our family stayed at the cabin which was beautiful and perfect for our clan! We all enjoyed playing games, reading and hiking around Cataract Lake. The view is incredible and the flowers and wildlife we got to see was awesome! Thank you so much!!

BEST WEEKEND EVER

  • 5 of 5
Thank you sooo much for allowing us to use your lovely family home. Everything was perfectly organized for us, including clean towels in each guest room, well-stocked kitchen, and BBQ on the patio! The cabin was so lovely! If secluded, private, quiet, nature-watching, calmess is your goal- this is the place to come! Thank you also for allowing our sweet, furry family members to enjoy the trip as well! They had a lovely time at the local hiking trails and swimming in cataract lake. We will defintely be back!
