About Randy Skalski

We hope that you have a wonderful stay at our log cabin. We lived in Colorado for more than 20 years and after a careful search, purchased this cabin for our family’s use during frequent trips to Colorado and enjoy sharing it with our guests. Thank-you for being our guest and we hope you will return.

Randy Skalski purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Randy Skalski chose Front Range Colorado

We love the setting of our cabin, nestled in a canyon, with a roaring creek, surrounded by National Forest, and without another home in sight. We also like the convenient location near the lively and vibrant City of Denver, with every available cultural activity and amenity; the quaint and historic town of Idaho Springs; and all the splendid sights and activities in the Rocky Mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

The sights and sounds of the creek are truly magical. On a more practical note, the cabin is extremely easy to find and easy to get to anytime of year on paved roads that are snow-plowed regularly. Winter access is about as good as it gets for the mountains in Colorado.

Awesome cabin by the creek

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this property. The cabin was spotless and comfortable and we loved the hiking trails right above it and the river right below it. Wonderful place to unplug for a while.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our family of 6. We spent our spring break skiing at Loveland ski resort and stayed at this cabin. It was a short drive to ski everyday and a wonderful quiet retreat to come back to. We hiked the path our first day there and spent relaxing evenings by the creek. We would definitely come back to this place.

Relaxing cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is great. Well appointed and comfortable. It is close to everything but feels secluded. This was our 2nd stay here and hopefully last.
