Another great stay at Writer's Nest!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had another opportunity to stay at the Writer's Nest, and once again enjoyed our visit. The Writer's Nest is the perfect location for an individual or couple to find seclusion, but yet only five and a half miles from Evergreen, and a short drive to Denver. The Writer's Nest is always clean, organized, and well stocked with cooking utensils, bath needs, and other amenities. There are books to read and cd's with a variety of music to fit your taste. A very comfortable, cozy setting, sometimes we would cook our meals in and enjoy our meal by the large picture window or on the balcony. We would recommend the Writer's Nest to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful location to get away from it all!

Quiet location with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Writers Nest for two nights for the purpose of focusing on a talk I am preparing. I made a great decision in choosing this spot. It was quiet and comfortable with gorgeous views. Michael was responsive and a great host while still giving me the space I needed for doing my work. I didn't want to leave the beauty and solitude.

Writer's Nest

  • 4 of 5

There is a house high on a mountain that has been converted to two apartments. The Writer's Nest is on the lower level. It is a small studio. The sliding glass door opens to a deck facing east. Great sunrises. Micheal is very insistent that vehicles have four wheel drive. Very good advice. The road changes from paved to a rocky path. It is, also, very steep. It is hard to find the place, but Micheal provided very intensive instructions. Don't try to find it for the first time at night. If that happens, be certain to carry a bright flashlight. On second thought, bring flashlights anyway. It is a peacefully place to stay and just relax. Or hike. Or drive and see the beauty of the mountains and lakes. Great food at the Bristol and Black Hat Cattle Company. Micheal is a really nice fellow. He made certain that the studio is well equipped. However, bring hand soap and shampoo. Don't know if it was not suppose to be there or we didn't find it. Oh, watch out for the black bears.

Owner's Response: Karl thank you for your time to share your experience with us and other prospective travelers. A couple of notes about Karl's review. First, you do not need a 4 Wheel drive vehicle in late spring, summer and fall. Second the upper level of the Cabin is never rented to other guests when the Writers Nest is occupied. We open up both levels of the home as 1 residence as a Vacation exchange home during the Winter Holidays when the Writers Nest is not rented. Hand soap and shampoo always provided at all of our cabins and both were provided and left unused by this guest. When Karl confirmed this reservation he acknowledged that he agreed with the owners policies. Part of that document is called "Preparing for your trip". In that document it is clearly explained the need for bringing a flashlight to our rural area. We have not scene a Black Bear in a long time. For a complete discussion of these or any other topics call or e mail us any time. And please read a few more of our many reviews Respectfully Michael Your Evergreen Colorado Wilderness Location Lodging Host

The Writer's Nest was perfect for me and my wife for our Anniversary trip! Secluded area and uninterrupted views off the balcony, Harvest moon-rise after sunset.
