About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

The ultimate Kirkwood cabin. Comfortable, rustic and updated, this cabin is situated right on the meadow, with stunning views of red cliffs and the Kirkwood slopes. XC ski, sled or snowshoe right from the house. Skiing is 1 mile away using Kirkwood’s door to door shuttle service.

The 2600 sq. ft house includes 4 bedrooms and three full baths. It sleeps up to 10 and is perfectly set up for two families. The house includes two master bedrooms with queen size beds and down comforters. The downstairs bath has twin showerheads and the 2nd floor master bath has a steam shower. The third bathroom, also upstairs, includes a bath/shower. The bunkroom on the second floor has two twin beds plus a pac n' play. The loft on the second floor has a daybed in a larger open area that is a great space for kids to play. On the third floor, accessed by a custom metal staircase, is a converted attic space with windows on either side. The room has two twin beds plus a small sofa that converts to another twin bed.

The gourmet kitchen has been recently remodeled. It includes a two oven DCS range with an oversized griddle that is great for making early morning pancakes on big powder days. The kitchen has everything you need including baking supplies and a fully stocked spice drawer. The dining room features a custom-made snowboard candelabra.

The living area has an oversized comfy wrap-around couch which sits in front of the wood-burning fireplace. The flat-screen TV is over the mantle with DirecTV, a DVD player and a cabinet full of movies. There is a large crafts table, a writing desk and a cabinet full of games and puzzles.

Wireless internet and a variety of snow play equipment (XC skis, boots, sleds and snowshoes) can be found in the single car garage. (Up to 18.5 ft) Electric Boot warmers in the front hallway makes the morning a little easier.

With its barn wood siding, rugged antiques, modern conveniences, and ultimate location, this cabin delivers a wonderfully unique and comfortable winter getaway. We are also open to allowing a well-trained dog. (Can’t go to Kirkwood without ours!)

Enjoy the perfect Kirkwood winter evening with your family and friends in front of the cozy fireplace, eating good food, watching movies, and playing games, laughing about the adventures of the day.

Great Spacious Cabin with log fire and modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very helpful with making plans and providing knowledge about the mountain, area and house. The house is nicely decorated and has everything you need. Access to TV apps to play ski movies to get fired up, board games, the awesome fireplace, modern kitchen with everything you need to cook proper meals, drip coffee maker (bring coffee), heated blankets, reading nook upstairs with lots of books, etc. The street and driveway get plowed. Driveway is steep-ish, can get icy after a big storm. Easy with a 3-Series with snow tires, not so much with just an AWD SUV with M+S tires - be prepared or park at the top of drive in dedicated spots or in the parking at top of street. Shuttle broke down on powder day and could not get us, so we did need access to our cars to get to mountain on time. Only thing this place needs is a hot tub ! :) Decent Internet - we worked from cabin and had multiple remote access sessions running

Rustic beautiful, perfect for family

We loved this cabin that was overlooking the beautiful meadow and the mountains. The shuttle for Kirkwood Skiing picked us up at the end of the driveway and drove us home, so skiing was convenient. Highly recommend it.

Great place to stay during the summer off season

  • 5 of 5

The rental is lovely. The house is super clean. There is plenty of towels and bedding. The YouTube instructions for operating the wood burner are awesome. (Yes, it got down to 43 one August day)

The kitchen is well equipped. Everything you would need to cook a meal.

Would love to stay there again. The hosts are great.

Beautiful, clean, full of character, good location

  • 5 of 5

My family and another family have now stayed at this house for two years during the winter time for skiing at Kirkwood. We hope to make this house an annual stay as we love it so much.

The house is in a great location in Kirkwood. We get picked up at the top of the driveway by the Kirkwood shuttle and taken straight to the slopes in a matter of minutes. Alternatively, one can cross country ski straight from the house to the Kirkwood meadow.

The house is well laid out for two families to stay very comfortably. The kids love staying up in the attic room. The kitchen has what seems to be an industrial caliber oven/stove/pancake griddle. The dining room table seats 10-12 people. The fireplace keeps everyone warm and cozy.

The house is very clean and all the furnishings make it very comfortable and homey. The decor is whimsical and charming. We love it here.

The children were able to go outside in the snow and we were able to view them from inside . They had a ball sledding on Destiney/Ledgend Mt ,right outside the window . We will be back !!

The house is on the meadow, with the Cross Country ski tracks right off of the back deck, so there are many opportunities for non-skiing related activities.
