RELAXING MOUNTAIN RETREAT - MAJESTIC VIEWS, HIKING & FISHING!

St. Marys Glacier Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

In just one hour you can get away from it all at this quiet mountain retreat. Watch the sunset behind St. Mary's Glacier from the deck with a glass of wine or a beer. If it gets a little chilly, light a fire in the outdoor fire pit, or head inside, light a fire in the cast iron stove and gaze out the 2 story A frame windows. Walking distance to the glacier hike and fishing (2 passes included)! Hike, mountain bike or snowshoe out the front door. A short drive to skiing, snowboarding, rafting, Mt. Evans and Idaho Springs.

All the furnishings are new! Master bedroom has a platform queen size bed with a cozy down comforter. The loft has 3 twin beds perfect for kids. The couch converts into a unique platform-style queen size bed - very comfortable! The kitchen is fully stocked and ready to use. Brand new washer and dryer are so convenient after a busy day outside. Dining area seats 6. All that is missing is you!

We are a busy family of 6 from Colorado.

Millicent Ambroggio purchased this cabin in 2009

This is our vacation home too! We love being in the mountains and this cabin is private but still close to our family and friends in Denver. We get the best of both worlds here!

Every morning we get up and play games in our pajamas instead of watching cartoons. We love the family time together without the interruption and distraction of electronics. This past summer we all went rafting and had a blast. When we want a night out, Idaho Springs is so close with lots of great places to eat and shop.

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. Great communication with owner. As one other reviewer mentioned, the trash situation is a little annoying, but it didn't really put a damper on things. The cabin itself is perfect. Plenty of space for two people or a small family. The wood-burning stove kept us nice and cozy - it was chilly at night, even in late June. The bed and furniture were very comfortable. Kitchen was well-stocked with what you'd need to cook. We had stopped in Denver to get groceries from Trader Joe's and were glad we did. We cooked almost all of our meals in the cabin. You can also stop by the supermarket at the bottom of the mountain for whatever else you might need (olive oil, other condiments, etc). The cabin is surrounded by pines, but you've got access to gorgeous mountain views just a few steps out of the door. From the cabin, it's about a mile hike to St. Mary's Lake. We packed a picnic and brought some books and stayed there all morning. It might be the most naturally beautiful place I've ever visited. You've got about a 20 minute drive up the mountain from I-70 to get to the cabin, but it's a really pleasant drive. We took lots of day trips (Boulder, Glenwood Springs, Frisco), but we were also very happy to lounge around the cabin and read and daydream. Not having wifi or TV was definitely a plus. We have wonderful memories of our time spent in the cabin and hope to be back again for future anniversaries!

BEAUTIFUL

  • 4 of 5
The area was absolutely beautiful, and the cabin was very nice and clean. Unfortunately, being from Alabama and having never been high in the mountains, we didn't realize there could still be so much snow in late May. It was quite a sight to see, but we were snowed in the first morning with a small economy car that was not made for snow travel. We had to return to Denver the next morning(very,very, slowly and with much prayer) to rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle. So, I would definitely recommend to anyone coming as early as May to start off with an SUV or some 4 wheel drive vehicle for safety. Also, if you're from a low lying area like we are, definitely plan to take it slow the first couple of days. I had done some research on altitude sickness and even had my physician give me a medication to treat it, but I had terrible headaches, dizziness, and extreme SOB the first few days. It eased some when we went down into Idaho Springs and other areas that we visited that were lower in altitude. All in all, it was an amazing trip with more beautiful scenery than I've never seen before! My only complaint about the stay in the cabin was with the lack of provision for the garbage. There were instructions on the refrigerator to take the garbage off of the mountain but not where to take it. I texted the owner who informed me we were to dispose of it in one of the garbage dumpsters by one of the gas stations in Idaho Springs. This made my husband and I VERY uncomfortable! We did not like filling up someone else's dumpster that they had paid for service for especially without their permission.

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED!

  • 5 of 5
We had quite a bit of snow when we arrived up to the cabin, but we were able to use the shovel to clear way. The cabin was all set for us when we got there, even the heaters were on! :-) It looked just like the pictures and was very clean. There was every pot, pan, utensil and kitchen appliance you would ever need. We brought food to cook meals and firewood, so we unloaded the car and settled right in, starting a fire in the cute little cast iron fireplace 1st thing. I loved that we were totally unplugged and the Homeowner's had great taste in board games, so we indulged---playing Battleship, Jenga, Yhatzee and Uno until the fire went out. The next 2 days were followed with skiing in Loveland, which was jammed up on I-70 quite a bit due to construction. So plan for somewhat of a commute to ski resorts (30-40mins.) We also went into Idaho Spring, to stop by the ever so delicious Tommyknockers, which was really close--within 10mins. Their beer is so fabulous! I decided to reserve the cabin for an extra day and we decided to go to the Ice Castles in Breckenridge with our extra time. What a cool experience that was! Overall, this stay was very peaceful, affordable, comfortable and everything we could have ever expected. We thank this Family for sharing their home with us and others and we look forward to spending more time here!

CABIN#380283

We enjoyed the cabin last week-end.The only inconvenience was having to scoop a path thru 6-7 ft. snowdrift covering the entire driveway. Was difficult to shovel.Would only rent for a summer getaway.

WEEK-END GET AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was perfect for a quick get away after Christmas. The kitchen was well equipped and the linens were of good quality. No television, cell service or Internet made it a perfect place to unplug for a few days. It is about 1/4 mile from the glacier and we snow shoed to the top! The next day we had about a foot of snow. We never used the loft but it would be great if you had children. It was a great week-end.

A WONDERFUL, PRIVATE RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I enjoyed two days at the cabin when it was 7* and blowing snow outside, but with some BYO firewood and a roaring fire in the wood-burning stove the inside was 72* and snug as a bug without even touching the thermostats - an amazing hideaway on the first day of winter! I live in nearby Denver so brought my own firewood, favorite cooking utensils and trusty sleeping bag, but the house really is ready to go with everything you need to cook, eat, sleep, and relax (including board games and some books). And one more thing - the thickest, fluffiest towels I've ever used!
