Very charming place in the heart of the mountains with an amazing view!
Thanks Mary and Brian for making our stay so enjoyable.. even though it was snowing badly when we went the cabin was a perfect place to unwind for the weekend.. the sunroom was our favorite with its amazing views and comfy space.. game room was the second favorite.. everything was very well organized right from the pre arrival instructions.. to everything in the house itself. Would definitely want to come here again soon!
Spacious and well appointed cabin with fantastic property and mountain views
We visited the cabin for a family getaway (7 adults, 1 infant) and had a fantastic experience. The cabin itself is spacious with two living/relaxing spaces and plenty of bedrooms for a group. We especially enjoyed the various plants growing in the main living room and the beautiful sun room that offered panoramic views of the nearby mountains and valley. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking meals, and Breckenridge is only a ~20min drive away if you are looking for restaurants or other activities. Access definitely requires a 4wd vehicle in the winter, but in the summer would probably not be necessary. We loved being cozy in the snow with the radiant heated floors in the entire cabin! It was delightful staying here in the winter, and I imagine it might be even better in the summer. We are even considering booking another visit just to enjoy the area in another season. Would absolutely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a secluded getaway with easy access to both mountain as well as in-town activities.
Short but lovely stay
The cabin was very clean and cozy. Great hosts!
The view was stunning
We instantly felt comfortable and at home walking in. The views are awe-inspiring. Tons of great nature exploring within (literally) under a 5-minute drive. The winds were howling outside the entire weekend we stayed there but the house is built as such it wasn't audible inside. The floors are radiant so the inside temperature was perfect. Easy to get to despite being pretty remote as well. Enough gushing. Will be requesting Brian and Mary's home again.
Wonderful cabin & hosts
Just finished a two night stay and can not say enough good things. Cabin was perfect and very spacious. The sun room is a wonderful spot for coffee or watching the snow fall in the winter. The host were both very nice and extremely helpful on any needs. A big thanks to Brian and Mary.
Beautiful house, breathtaking view!
Perfect cabin setting with incredible views. Mary and Brian were easy to work with and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was great. While we were only in town for a short trip, we will be sure to come back here again...next time for much longer!
