About Shelli

My husband and I bought this home a few months before we got married and have enjoyed taking friends and family to it to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

We were living in Silt, which is about an hour from Powderhorn, but my husband was lucky enough to get into the Colorado School of Mines to study Petroleum Engineering. So we have relocated to Littleton while he attends school.

I am a stay at home mom to our son Parker and also work for the Colorado Broadcasters Association. I enjoy photography and coaching volleyball.

Shelli purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Shelli chose Northwest Colorado

We love the seclusion of our home, you can sit out on our deck and see the wild animals, sit in our hot tub at night and watch the shooting stars.

What makes this cabin unique

If you love to relax, you will love our large jetted tub and our steam shower.

House is so roomy

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. The pictures do not do it justice. We stay I Feb it was 7 degrees out and sitting in the hot tub was amazing. We cooked every night there is everything you will in a kitchen. We loved the game room! Oh and the heated floors!! Thank you for sharing your home with us, it was perfect!!

Nice House but needs a lot of TLC

  • 3 of 5

Great set-up, location, and floor plan, but the house needs some attention. The windows and doors work poorly - signs everywhere saying not to use them. Owner should hire a carpenter. The oven was filthy. Every kitchen cabinet and drawer is in disarray - a lot of utensils, but many could be thrown away. House holds 12 but only 2 wine glasses? The rugs, carpets, and couch slip covers were dirty. The Wii had one disk that worked (all the rest were too scratched) - none of the Xbox disks work. Pets aren't allowed yet this house has dog odor and the automatic scent sprayers don't hide it. In the bedroom on the main floor the TV only plays DVDs (no cable or antennae) yet there are only two disks to watch, "Yes Man", and "Dragon Tales". When we checked in there were more than 50 dead flies on the floor and a couple of dead roaches The towels were very scratchy, smelled bad, and the washcloths looked like rags. Driveway was shoveled but the walkway to the front door wasn't. The kitchen faucet is very loose. The laundry room and W/D need cleaning, especially the dirt in the tray the washer sits in. We had 2 mice visit us in the game room. Exit instructions say to clean, sweep, vacuum, and wash dishes and towels - what's the cleaning fee for? This house sleeps 12 but the BBQ grill will only cook for maybe six. Great balcony but no chairs to enjoy it from, much less a table. Has potential to be a great place, but need some serious TLC.

Owner's Response: This is a log cabin, you can expect to have flies and mice. I hired Orkin over two years ago to help take care care of the flies and mice. Even though Orkin comes, there will still be mice and flies since it's a log cabin. All the DVD's for the TV are located under the TV stand in the living room. The rest of the wine glasses are in the basement in the cupboards next to the fridge. The oven has been cleaned. Yes, there are signs on the doors, cause due to previous experiences nobody could figure out how to lock them, so the signs simply explain how to lock the doors. This is a log cabin, the logs expand and shrink due to the changing seasons, so you may find that some months you will have issues with the doors and other months you will have no issues at all. There is a bench and two chairs to use to sit out on the deck and enjoy it.

Clean, spacious and comfortable! Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our short but sweet stay. We came to Powderhorn for a ski race and the house was perfect for both adults and kids. The kitchen has everything you need and the beds are so comfortable! Will be back next year!

Clean, convenient and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We spent a ski weekend up here with some friends of ours. It was clean upon arrival and all the information given to us about the house was very accurate. The hot tub was a great addition to the trip. The cabin is located so close to Powderhorn which was nice. The heated garage/recreation area is great to keep all your ski stuff and just hang out. I was able to text with Shelli a few times with questions and she was immediate with her responses. The steam shower was nice, the water pressure/shower head in the upstairs shower wasn't very good. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils/pots and pans etc. There were no showering amenities so make sure you bring shampoo and soap and lotion (it is so dry up here). Overall I would definitely recommend this house and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks for having us!

Mountain log home getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is well situated adjacent to Powderhorn Mountain Resort. The log home is the perfect mountain get away for family or friends to relax in a well stocked home to suit all your needs. The views are breathtaking from the large open living area, kitchen, loft and hot tub. The balcony and decks are great outdoor spaces too. The listing of the property were very accurate and the home is well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking at the cabin. Since there are not many restaurants or grocery stores it is nice to have all the amenities necessary for home cooking. I would definitely recommend this property and hope to enjoy it again ourselves. Booking and information was easy and timely.
