I wanted to find a place to take my family and experience the wonder of the Rocky Mountains. Mike Carter's cabins provided for all of our needs. The cabins were clean and well equipped and in a location with access to rafting, fishing, and hiking. Mike's hospitality helped our family experience a wonderful vacation. Would definitely do it again--Thanks Mike!

This is a lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5

I had a WONDERFUL time in this cabin at the end of June 2014 (the 'date of arrival' calendar would not go back that far). Michael and Joyce went to lot of trouble to make sure everything their guests need (within reason) is here - salt and pepper shakers, ketchup, toilet paper, games, a fan - too much to name. This place is immaculate, spider-free, private ... we couldn't have asked for a better cabin. We hope to come back someday and will definitely look up one of your properties, Michael. It was a pleasure to stay here. Thank you!

Comfortable overall, beautiful setting

  • 3 of 5

We spent three nights at the Canyon House and used it as home base for a few long days of disc golf in the area. The cabin was comfortable overall, and we had a great time. We cooked meals each night. The kitchen was decently appointed, but lacked sharp knives and a good cutting board. We used the gas grill on the deck for cooking steaks. Definitely nice to have. The wood burning stove was nice, and the host left instructions and a starter brick. Communication with the host was very clear overall.

The road to the cabin winds up the side of the mountain and is paved three-quarters of the way. The last mile or so dirt and very steep. Our rented Nissan Versa struggled on the loose gravel, but we were fine. If you're traveling in the snowy months, I think you'd need four-wheel-drive.

A couple of things to watch out for: the listing says the cabin sleeps six, and has beds for six. Which, is technically true, I suppose, if everybody is sleeping two-to-a-bed. We were four old friends, not couples, so one of use ended up sleeping on the floor. I wouldn't say the couch is quite big enough for sleeping. We managed, but unless you're all intimate, I'd say the cabin is more ideal for a party of three.

Also, the listing clearly says the cabin has internet. It does not. There was a note on the wall informing us of internet at the office nearby. We all had good cell phone reception, so the lack of connection to the world wasn't a problem. But if you need to do work that requires internet while staying at the cabin, you may want to think twice.

Overall, a nice cabin in a beautiful setting.

Owner's Response: We thank this valued guest for taking the time to write this review. Let's clear up a couple of mis-statements of fact in the guests review. First the listing clearly states that there is NO INTERNET SERVICE at Canyon House. For this guest to indicate that we advertise an amenity that is not present when we advertise just the opposite a is very offensive. We offer 6 other Wilderness Location Evergreen Colorado Vacation Cabins and Cottages that have internet service. Second there is a cutting board left on the kitchen counter right next to the sink and 2 very sharp Japanese style carving knives and a full set of very sharp steak knives. We are always on site and we communicate very well with our guest during there visit and request they contact us if they have a problem. We never received a text or phone call during this guests stay requesting sharp knives. The sleeping arrangements ( 2 queens and one double bed ) to sleep a total of 6 guests is clearly described in the VRBO LISTING. If you are a prospective traveler looking For a quiet Secluded lodging experience Canyon House is for you, and we are confident that you will read the listing to assure that the amenities you require are described in the listing. As to the road to Canyon House; it is fully maintained, graded; and accessible year round. This guest complaint about their small compact rented car is predictable. With a compact car, trying to have sea level performance at our elevation of 9000 feet, engine power is always reduced as a vehicle climbs to higher altitude. Please take the time to read a # of our traveler reviews. Wilderness location Lodging is not for everybody If you have questions about these topics please call or E mail us any time Respectfully Michael Your Wilderness Location Evergreen Colorado Lodging Host

Private, spacious cabin with private deck. Perfect for a cozy get-a-way.

  • 4 of 5

Three of us stayed in this cabin, very comfortably. Each with our own comfy bed and were able to sleep in, as the surrounding area was quite. We felt the kitchen was spacious to be able to prepare meals. The private deck, allowed for a get-a-way feel at night for star gazing. Another bonus was the wood burning stove and the large window in the living room that over looks the deck. The windows provide great natural light.

Beautiful fall colors getaway

  • 5 of 5

As recent first time empty nesters we decided to visit our youngest daughter who just started college in Boulder Colorado this fall. Luckily we found The Canyon House online. What a find We stayed 4 nights and were able to visit our daughter in Boulder twice. The fall colors from the house were just as advertised on Michaels listing absolutely spectacular. The house is clean, quiet and secluded on a dead end road exactly as advertised, and has everything you need. Great place to grill out on the deck with a mountain view. You do want to take Michaels advice an bring your groceries before you arrive because it is 7 or 8 miles to the store.. We really liked the idea that if we cleaned up before we left we got or deposit back and our deposit was returned the day we left.

We plan to visit our daughter often and will defiantly return to Canyon House

Thank you Michael

Owner's Response: Will & Mabel, what a treat to meet such happy people !! We really enjoyed the evening on the porch with you and learning about life in rural KS. Thank you so much for sharing with us, and offering the bag of your home grown tomatoes. They are real treat that we don't find very often in the Rocky Mountains. So glad you found us, and were able to combine a Colorado adventure with visiting your daughter in Boulder. We look forward to your return visit Regards Michael

"Refundable" deposit NOT refundable apparently

  • 1 of 5

We left that place spotless and had our "refundable" deposit taken anyway. The only thing I can see on the list of things it says he wants done before you leave that we didn't do was put new sheets on the beds... Just for having to change sheets...? Really? Scam all around. And who expects someone to change sheets during a VACATION... Just know that the deposit will NOT be refunded even if you leave it nearly perfect... Not very relaxing for a "vacation house" to ask you to do chores...

Owner's Response: That is correct !! The refundable deposit was not refunded to this guest after they left our home in the most filthy condition we have seen all year. We have no apologies for keeping this guests deposit. If you are a prospective traveler and have shopped for Private Family vacation rentals you've found that most owners require a non refundable Cleaning Fee. We offer our guests a refundable housekeeping deposit option that is credited back to our guests credit card Promptly on Check out day "When the residence is left the way the guest found it at Check-in" We have hosted over 400 sets of guest in our 9 Evergreen Colorado Vacation Cabins and Cottages this year and have only retained 3 Housekeeping deposits. We are not in the business of retaining deposits except in the most extreme circumstances. Most of our wonderful guests treat our homes with the same TLC and respect that they treat their own homes and we are so fortunate to be able to say this. Unfortunately this guest, who read and agreed to the terms of the Refundable Housekeeping Deposit upon confirming her reservation on line, decided that she was entitled to a refund with out doing anything to tidy up behind herself and then leave this vicious review witch has no basis in fact. It took a crew of 3, more than 4 hours to clean the mess that was left which consisted of the following. Kitchen dishes, pot, pans left with food leavings strewn thru out the kitchen. Kitchen counters, stove top and oven left with food leavings stuck everywhere. Sink with food garbage. Fireplace ash all over tile and carpet floors, & upholstery, requiring carpet and upholstery cleaning. Bath left with personal care product residue thru out on floor, sink in tub. Splatter in toilet. Bedrooms left in total dis array. Food crumbs left thru out home on carpeted floors. Consequently we take issue with this guests assertion that the "Place was left nearly perfect" and counter that that this statement is an absolute miss statement of fact. We are very saddened to be compelled to write this reply but we can not let this kind of vicious miss statement of fact go un-addressed. If your are a prospective traveler reading this review we ask two things of you. Please read deep into our reviews on this and our other 8 Evergreen Colorado Vacation Cabins & Cottages. We think our more than 300 reviews speak for themselves. And then call us any time if you would like to discuss this review or any other topic. Respectfully Michael
