Overview

About the property

2br, 2bath Mountain Cabin 45 Minutes Outside Of Breckenridge

Come and enjoy awesome views of the Rocky Mountains. Pikes Peak can be seen 60 miles away. 20 miles to the north is Mt. Evans which has the highest road in the USA. A must do!!

Our cabin sits at 10,000 feet on top of Michigan Hill in a quiet, peaceful setting. Elk and mule deer can be seen in the yard at times. There are lots of birds and other small wildlife. Pike National Forest is only three miles away with unlimited fun for all.The Colorado Trail is only 2 miles from the front porch for day hiking or using the house as a base. The Inner mountain trail is part of a 400 mile moderately difficult system

It's just 45 minutes to Breckenridge, 1 hours to Denver, and 1.75 hours to Colorado Springs. The 4 WHEELING is also unreal with an untold number of miles of trails in the mountains. You have to see this place to believe it.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of crowds and the city, this is the place for you!

HIGHLIGHTS: Watching the mountains, hiking, skiing, 4 wheeling, fishing, wildlife viewing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Before we rented I really wondered if this cabin was going to have incredible mountain views? WOW!! That was an understatement! If I were an owl my head would have been spinning! Lots of wild life, deer, rabbits,birds, and we found some bear tracks in road! This is a quiet location, very little traffic and at night the stars will hang over your head! When you stand out on the sky deck its like you're on top of the world. This is one of the most breath taking valleys we have ever seen! When you come over the Kenosha Pass from the east end of the valley on 285, be prepared for your mouth to drop open and you don't know where to look first!! We would return to this cabin in a heart beat. The owners where very helpful and feel like we can call them friends after staying in their cabin.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The expansive views of South Park can't be beat. The home was clean and had everything we needed to get away from it all. There were many extras like a well-stocked bookshelf, movies, and puzzles, which we enjoyed. The beds were plenty comfortable too.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We went for a long weekend and had a very relaxing time. Jefferson Lake and many hiking trails are nearby, but we spent a lot of time just hanging out on the deck looking at the view and watching wildlife. The house is comfortable and stocked with everything you would need- just bring your own food! I would recommend an AWD if you go in the winter- the driveway is short, but up a steep hill and around a curve. We would definitely go back to stay again in the future.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

Each summer, I try to get away from the smoldering heat of Oklahoma and spend a week in Colorado. I took my daughter(13) and my son(9) for yet another nice vacation. We explored Georgia Pass, hiked, and built a campfire and had smores along the way. We fished Jefferson Lake virtually every day we were there. It provided some great fishing entertainment, as well as some good hiking around the lake. The location of the cabin in Jefferson is great. It is away from everything, yet close enough to Denver to take in a Rockies game one day. The cabin is a perfect place to relax, yet close to all kinds of great things to do!

You'll Never Want to Leave!!!

  • 5 of 5

The view was beyond our greatest expectations!! There is a picture for a postcard out every single window of this home. The owner was cordial and accommodating, and the instructions for the stay were very detailed and simple. We were greeted by a personal note and a housewarming gift for our stay... personal touches that made us immediately feel at ease. Everything that we needed was readily available in the home. We loved the area so much that we spent one entire day looking at available real estate! Jefferson Lake is very nearby and worth the drive on the rather bumpy dirt road. We look forward to staying at this peaceful, breathtaking retreat many more times in the future.

high recommendations

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and her fiancee rented this property for a week in July. We only live a few minutes from the rental, so the location was ideal for us. I have just recommended this property to friends for next summer and hope it will not conflict with my daughters plans to return next year. It was a charming house, extremely clean and well supplied with anything you might forget, everything you need to cook for yourselves and do your own laundry. All the comforts of home and then some! The owners were lovely and readily available to answer questions (even stupid ones!) Thanks again, Rennie
