Randy and Betsy are the owners of this cabin. The cabin is brand new, completed June 2012. It was built as a mountain retreat for our family and friends. We make our home in Littleton, Colorado a suburb of Denver, Colorado. Betsy originates from St. Louis, MO, but has spent most of her time in Colorado. Randy is from Phoenix, AZ but got to Colorado as fast as he could. We both enjoy this area for its beauty, quietness, the stars, cool air, and the outdoor activities.

Betsy is an artist and spends time painting at the cabin and in the area. She has her work displayed in the Courtyard Gallery in Buena Vista. Randy enjoys photography.

Randy and Betsy Duzan purchased this cabin in 2011

Betsy and I were first introduced to the Mt Princeton area in 2002 when we joined with four other families to build a small cabin within a mile of this one. We eventually decided to build a place of our own so we could spend more time in the mountains. Once you have stayed here you will agree that it is a special place!

We chose the property for this cabin because of the view and its proximity to a 14 acre meadow. Every morning we wake up and look outside to see what nature has for us. The valley is always changing with the clouds, the morning deer and the sunrise on the chalk cliffs providing something new. At night we anticipate sitting on the deck and looking up at the stars for an amazing display of the galaxy. Even though it feels like we are in the middle of the forest, we are minutes away from services and amenities.

GREAT CABIN FOR WEEKEND OR WEEK-LONG GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is fantastic! It is new with granite countertops and modern, high end amenities, but it still has a great cabin-like, rustic feel. The location of the cabin is nestled up to the chalk cliffs at the base of beautiful Mt. Princeton. The views are incredible. We spent a day 4wheeling out of All Season Adventures in Salida, and it was one of the most fun days I've had in awhile (and im an adventurous 28 year old that spends my time mountain biking, rock climbing, mountaineering, etc). I was impressed with the excitement and adventure the ATV trails off Monarch pass provides. Great mountain biking up there too. We also took the recommendation of Betsy and Randy and checked out Mt Princeton hot springs and the ghost town of St Elmo's. Both were well worth it. Hot springs are a little pricey at $22 per person though. The drive up to St Elmo's beamed with autumn colors and proved to be one of the most beautiful mountain drives I've been on in the 5 years I've lived in Colorado. St Elmo's was so cool we are thinking about returning this winter to go snowmobiling up there. All in all, this was a great trip and great place to stay!

CABIN IN COLORADO IS AMAZING!!!! A MUST SEE!

  • 5 of 5
It was an amazing home!!! I was very pleased at the location and the setting to where it was located. The owners were very easy to communicate with and very helpful with ideals on what to do in the area. We spent a week in the cabin and really felt like we were at home. We celebrated my daughters 11th birthday there and have tons of memories that we brought back to Texas with us! I was VERY pleased that all we have to being with us was our food for the week, they provided all the necessities for the home. I hope that we can again stay at the cabin next summer again and make this a tradition with my family. The location was PERFECT b/c it was close to BV and still close to Salida. Just a small drive up to St. Elmo/Ghost town, hiking on the Continental Divide Pass, to rafting with Noah's Ark Rafting company, also horseback riding in the mountains & through the creeks with a local company just 5 mins down the way. I'm very pleased that I came across this home and that we were blessed to call it our home for the week. Thank you again for letting me and my family stay in your cabin you have done a beautiful job in making it comfortable for families to relax and enjoy the AMAZING veiw of the surrounding mountains and scenery. God bless you!

DELIGHTFUL!

  • 5 of 5
An amazing cabin in a perfect setting! Chalk cliffs delight every morning and wildlife is abundant in this quiet, wooded area. The cabin is far more roomy than the pictures depict - and the amenities provided by the owners made us feel like we were staying at a luxurious spa! This cabin is located close to hiking, fishing, rafting, horseback riding and many more activities. We enjoyed the restaurants in the town of Salida and Buena Vista. We would definitely recommend this cabin to our friends and hope to stay here again next summer!

The cabin is located in an area known as the Mt. Princeton area or the Chalk Cliffs area.

The Arkansas Valley region is a 'banana belt’, which keeps the temperatures from the extremes and limits heavy snow fall to elevations above 7,500'. This cabin is on the snow line, so snow depths are variable. Within minutes of the cabin you can hike, fish, 4-wheel, cycle, swim, cross country ski, raft, rock climb, and camp. For the more adventurous, hiking any of the 14teeners in the area is an accomplishment.

Everyone should take a trip down the Arkansas River at least once to experience white water rafting. Depending on the water level and type of trip there are trips for all levels from calmer waters to Class 5 water.

The Mt. Princeton Resort and Hot Springs is a popular destination with a hot springs swimming pool.

St Elmo ghost town is 12 miles up valley and is a great mountain drive and off-roading area in the summer.

Chalk Creek is a 10-minute walk and good for fishing.

Horseback riding is available near the Mt Princeton resort.

For unique restaurants and art galleries spend the afternoon and evening in Buena Vista 9 miles north or Salida12 miles south. There are several interesting bars in both towns.

A perfect weekend in this area would include our local favorites:

Explore St. Agnes falls: Drive 10 minutes up the valley and hike .5 miles to the base of the falls.

Eat breakfast at the Evergreen Café in Buena Vista.

Take home a painting from a local artist at the Courtyard Gallery in Buena Vista.

Go on an adventure with Noah’s Ark Rafting Company or another local outfitter.

Soak in the hot springs at the Mt. Princeton Resort or Cottonwood Hot Springs.

Take a scenic drive up to the ghost town, St. Elmo -- a trip back to the gold mining days.

Enjoy a gourmet dinner at the Laughing Ladies Restaurant in Salida or the Eddyline Restaurant & Brewery in Buena Vista.
