Overview

Idaho Springs Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6) with hot tub

Our beautiful home is nestled in the beautiful national forests surrounding St. Mary’s Glacier in the St. Mary’s/Winterland neighborhood. The natural setting allows for all sorts of outdoor activities. In the winter you can enjoy backcountry skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or if you’re brave, you can give winter camping a try. When the snow melts in May, opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, 4x4 off-roading, backpacking and camping abound. The base of St. Mary's Glacier is one mile away. There are also two private lakes in the neighborhood that can be fished.

The nearby quaint town of Idaho Springs boasts unique shopping and is rich in frontier and mining history. Try your luck at panning for gold after taking in a tour at one of the local mines. Run the rapids of Clear Creek with one of the several rafting companies right in Idaho Springs. Afterwards, soak in the hot springs and baths of Indian Springs. Or you can just spend the day shopping and visiting some of the several museums around town that are interesting for the entire family. There are several restaurants in Idaho Springs as well. BeauJo’s world famous pizza is an excellent choice or you can try one (or two) of the microbrews at Tommyknocker’s.

After a long day of invigorating activity, shopping, or exploring, relax in our spacious two bedroom – two bath newly remodeled home. The living room has all of the comforts of home including a flat screen television with DirecTV and DVD player. If you’ve come to get away from the television, feel free to push the flat screen against the wall and forget it’s there. You can play some music, stretch out on the couches and enjoy the warmth of the wood-burning fireplace while reading your favorite book. The larger couch also folds out into a queen size bed. The beautifully updated kitchen has everything you’ll need to cook your favorite meals. Also downstairs is a full bathroom equipped with an amazingly relaxing rainforest shower head. Follow the aspen log staircase upstairs to the second bathroom and two bedrooms. The second bedroom sleeps two on a comfortable queen size bed and the master has a larger king size aspen log bed. From the master bedroom or the main entrance downstairs the large front deck can be accessed. Soak all your troubles away and enjoy the amazing scenery in the luxury oversized hot tub situated on the deck.

So get away for a while and stay in our wonderful home. It won’t be a vacation you’ll soon forget.

Why Glenn and Austina Harper chose Front Range Colorado

This secluded cabin is our basecamp for both mountain activities and quiet downtime. There are six ski areas, historic mining towns, outlet stores and casinos just a short drive away. St. Mary's Glacier is a moderate one mile walk from the house and makes for a great day hike with incredible views. We end the day cooking dinner on the deck and relaxing in the hot tub under the trees. Our cabin has everything we need for a mountain getaway.

What makes this cabin unique

The 400 sq ft deck has a hot tub, picnic table and gas grill with space for folding chairs. There is an outdoor fire pit with plenty of firewood ready for use.

Perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and area were perfect. The owner was very helpful with any questions and provided great information about activities nearby. The beds were very cozy and the kitchen and bathrooms were supplied with little extras that made the stay very comfortable. The hike to the glacier was amazing! We hope to be back soon!

Breathtaking seclusion!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were extremely helpful and informative of the property and surroundings. They provided ameneties we weren't even expecting! Beds were so cozy and the hot tub was a huge bonus to our stay. Soothed our aching muscles after hiking St. Mary's glacier, which is only a half-mile away. Very relaxed and private setting in the mountains. I know for certain that in future travels to the Denver Colorado area, I'll never stay anywhere else but here. Thank you Glenn and Austina for making our stay so amazing!
