SEPTEMBER is "FALL COLORS' in COLORADO. Our primary colors are from the leaves turning bright yellow and orange on the "QUAKING ASPENS". These trees mixed with the deep blue September sky, the backdrop of deep green Pine Tree Forest and the often light brushing of September pure white snow on the high mountain peeks makes for a unique combination of spectacular fall color in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.The timing for fall colors is graduated by Elevation. The Higher the elevation the earlier the leaves will turn.

Rocky Mountain Experience

  • 5 of 5

We make several trips a year from Fl to visit our daughter, her husband and our wonderful grand daughter in Evergreen, Co. I have always wanted to stay in a cabin and not be cooped up in a hotel room while visiting them. We usually stay with them but this time we wanted to do something different. The Sunrise Lodge was every thing I was hoping for. It was rustic, comfortable, roomy and a lot of fun. Being from Fl and waking up to temps in the high 40's was a great change. We baby sat our grand daughter there at the Lodge and she loved running from room to room. I took her hiking there around the property and had a lot of fun coming across deer and a fox. To cap off our visit we awoke the last morning to find eight deer at our door step. We hope to go back out to Evergreen in Dec and look forward to staying in one of Micheal's homes again.

We loved Sunrise Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Sunrise Lodge it's a very nice cabin. We had 4 adults and had lots of room we did not feel crowded at all, this cabin has a large patio that we would sit at and eat our dinner that we cooked on the grill. The kitchen had everything that we needed and the bathrooms where stocked with plenty of towles, the beds where comfy. Michael the owner was extremely nice and we loved talking to him. We can't wait to go back!

Sunrise cabin was very nice retreat for our stay in Evergreen.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was clean, comfortable and offered the remote setting we wanted. The evenings were cool and we were kept company by some local deer and many birds. The directions need to add that after the T you will be on twisty dirt roads so you will need an appropriate vehicle.

We visited the Creekside Winery downtown Evergreen and enjoyed a lovely afternoon winetasting and snack.

Overall a great stay.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that our guest enjoyed their stay. and we appreciate our guests time to share their experience with you as a prospective traveler to "Sunrise Lodge" or any of our 9 Evergreen Colorado Wilderness Location VRBO and HomeAway listed Vacation Cabins and Cottages. We very clearly explain in our Lodging contract and General information attachment to our reservation confirmation e-mail that all Wintertime driving in Colorado, and arriving in the Wintertime at any of our 9 Evergreen Colorado Secluded Wilderness location Vacation homes requires an All/wheel drive Specialty vehicle. A specialty vehicle is not required during June thru November. We are glad that our guest had no problem accessing our "Sunrise Lodge" with a non specialty regular 2 wheel drive vehicle and we see no need to change our information offering on this topic. You do not need a specialty "appropriate" vehicle to access our VRBO AND HomeAway listed Evergreen Colorado Wilderness Vacation homes in June, July, August, Sept & October For a discussion of this or any other topic please call us any time Sincerely Michael Your Evergreen Colorado Wilderness Lodging Host

Perfect getaway in Evergreen, CO

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just vacationed for a week in gorgeous Evergreen, CO and stayed in this wonderful cabin. First of all, the price was very reasonable (especially for what you get!) Cabin is large-- perfect for families. Comes equipped with just about everything you could think of. Cabin is decorated very nicely. Beds are very comfortable. I had some of the best sleep in a long time there! Michael is a wonderful host- very friendly and accommodating. And Evergreen is such a cute mountain town- perfect for vacationers. You're less than an hour away from Denver so you're close to the big city if you want to catch a ball game but you have the beauty of staying in a cabin high up on the mountain. Driving into Evergreen, you get magnificent views of Mount Evans. You drive around the lake there in the middle of town to get to the cabin and don't be surprised to stop for elk as they cross the road. Wonderful restaurants and shops to visit downtown! Our family had the best time. On a side note, the television is newer than the one in the pictures- probably a 60" flat screen. We brought our XBOX and were able to access Netflix, Hulu, etc for those (like us!) who like to be able to watch our favorite shows and movies any time. Highly recommend this cabin! Thanks for hosting us, Michael!

Snowy Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We visited the Sunrise Lodge from Jupiter, FL the last week of February 2015 and had a lovely time. It was a cozy cabin home on a mountain with a beautiful setting. We arrived to huge snow storm that had cancelled many other flights into Denver and to record snow falls in Colorado in a hundred years. Luckily we rented a Subaru Outback that my husband said was like a bobsled on wheels. Michael was a gracious host and met us at the bottom of the mountain with his pickup truck and plowed before us all the way up to our cabin. He was on top of the plowing throughout our week stay. He even came down and met us another evening to guide us in when we were out skiing at Loveland one day and returned to another snow storm that had rolled in and dropped several inches. We had a blast playing in all that snow! It was our 3-year old son's first experience with snow and he was very excited. It was really nice to come in after sledding down the driveway and sitting by the gas powered stove in the living area. Our son enjoyed running all over the house which was spacious and smartly designed. Our bedroom had a queen size bed and a twin bed so our son could sleep in the same room with us, also the warmest room. We were really smart to bring our Apple TV so we could watch all of our favorite shows and movies, although Michael has quite a collection of DVD's, games, and books there for entertainment. We were also able to watch local news channels in the bedroom and get the latest on the weather movements. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return sometime soon.

Owner's Response: Michelle and Family, we are so pleased that you were able to visit Colorado during the heart of Winter and that your 3 year old son, Maxwell, could experience snow for the first time. We will never forget his excitement of having you be on the sled and him pushing you off down the snow covered driveway hill. We enjoyed your family and thank you for taking the time to write this very gracious review. If you are a prospective traveler from the Southern States, and you have young children that have not yet experienced snow please consider one of our 9 Evergreen Colorado VRBO and Homeaway listed Cabins and Cottages for your Winter Vacation. Sincerely Michael - Your year round Evergreen Colorado Vacation Home Lodging Host
