WE HAVE LIVED IN COLORADO FOR MOST OF OUR LIVES, AND OWNED OUR RANCH SINCE 1969. PERMANENTLY
MOVED HERE IN 1973 AND RAISED OUR FAMILY HERE
LENNI OR DON purchased this cabin in 2004
Beautiful mountains in ranching country with a year round flowing stream where the Deer and Elk roam. Lakes and
streams close by for fishing. also, centrally located to a lot
of interesting things to see and do.
No city noises, peaceful and beautiful. The Native Americans called this area 'The Long Look' because it was
so beautiful, they had to take a 'long look'.
Our family went to Colorado for a much needed family vacation, Aug 2016. We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed every bit of it! Don and Lenni were very accommodating with information on local attractions to check out. They also gave us privacy. The cabin is right next to their home but that didn't bother us, we were on the go most of the time. The cabin was very very clean, they definitely stay on top of it. We will return soon.
Thank you very opening your home to us,
Danielle and Gabe
This is the fourth time I've sought refuge with Lennie and Don at the Long Look, returning for the annual Plein Air Event in Victor. The distance I must travel pales in comparison to the relief and relaxation that awaits me at this cozy cabin. Each morning as I head out I am restored! My wife joined me at the end of a busy week during my first stay and fell in love with the Dilts, their hospitality and the comfort and convenience of their cabin. Over the next two years we have brought a granddaughter with us, and this year we shared this escape with our 87 year old father. He can't wait to get back! We return for the peacefulness, the feeling of being rejuvenated, and most of all because of the Grace of our hosts.
Don and Lenni were very gracious hosts. Although we arrived a bit after dark, their directions were impeccable and we had no problem finding them! Upon our arrival, they took us to the cabin and explained some basic locations of things, operation of a couple of things, and let us get settled in.
This cabin was perfect for our family of four. it was small enough to be quaint and just big enough to be comfortable. The furniture, including the beds, are very comfortable, and the well water is excellent! The cabin is very clean. Don't expect a hotel room, you are in a cabin...there is a "home" feel to this place that gives it it's charm.
There are a ton of games to play, books to read, and if all else fails, they have satellite TV, a dvd/vcr player, and a small selection of movies to choose from. But, you are not there for that! The views are great, and Don and Lenni are great to talk to if you catch them around the area. Lenni recommended some short little walks around the property that would be easy for kids.
The area is very quiet, as you are removed from the county road. The cabin sits next to a small stream, under some willows...very relaxing to listen to at night.
Although the cabin is in a rural location, you are not far from attractions such as the Florissant Fossil Beds, Canon City, and Guffey, the closest town. They have a couple of restaurants and bars in Guffey. Although we didn't do it, there are apparently good hiking trails in the area as well.
We will definitely be back, and will stay longer! Definitely a good choice.
Truly relaxing. Secluded, in the country, cabin was immaculate actually so much more than what I had imagined. 100 percent satisfied with our stay. Don and Lenni were extremely hospitable and respected our privacy on a grand level..
My family really enjoyed our stay. The scenery was beautiful and the owners were friendly. Even though their house was extremely close to the rental, they truly respect your privacy. There were great hiking paths very close to the property. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the long drive to civilization. The cabin truly is secluded which is great when you want a get away, but you do have to drive 45 to an hour for activities such as rafting. Overall, very pleased and would refer friends and family.
We enjoyed our stay as it was quite, peaceful, and secluded. Cabin had absolutely everything we needed and more.
Don, Lennie were very responsive prior to our arrival with directions and any questions we had, and they were gracious hosts during our stay.
