Welcome to Buckskin Lodge!

At an elevation of 10,578 feet, Alma, Colorado is one of the highest settlements with permanent residents in the United States. It’s only beaten out by Winter Park, which is only considered the highest incorporated town due to its annexation of its ski area. Either way, Alma certainly has no shortage of breathtaking mountain views and memorable mountain activities.

Have a real mountain adventure by staying in this huge 6-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom cabin. With 3 stories and floor-to-ceiling glass windows showcasing the sensational Rocky Mountain views, you’ll find that this cabin is a great starting-off point for your ultimate Colorado vacation! You’ll feel like mountain royalty warming up by the 2-story stone fireplace in the living room, and everyone will love hanging out in the huge game room on the lower level, equipped with a pool table, chess table, additional stone fireplace, and bar. Other specialty rooms include a TV/media room, an upstairs study, a reading loft, and a super romantic indoor hot tub room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows on two sides. You will have gorgeous panoramic views of the scenery while having a warm bubbly soak with your travel companions. At the end of the day, relax on one of the two outdoor decks and remind yourself that you made the right decision to come here.

The spectacular views, beautiful trees, and serenity of the surroundings are absolutely unbeatable here. The nearby towns are lovely, and you’re sure to enjoy exploring them. By staying in this cabin you’ll also have super easy access to all the activities the area has to offer, including white water rafting, horseback riding, hiking, and skiing. You can be at many of Colorado’s finest ski resorts within an easy drive!

The location was awesome! It was quiet, which was what we had wanted! We had an awesome view of the mountains! The cabin was clean and spacious for our group of 11. We were delighted to find a cabin this size for the price! We killed quite a few spiders... Maybe that's common in a cabin? The manager provided good customer service. There's been talk of renting this cabin again in the future if the price remains reasonable! We would definitely consider staying here again!

Simply Enchanting - nestled high in the mountains with a beautiful view of surrounding mountains.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time in Alma on Kootchie Kootchie Lane. The home was beautiful, inviting and a perfect location to base out of after visiting Colorado Springs. We visited Canon City for Zip lining and White Water Rafting in the Royal Gorge Area, drove to Breckenridge and crossed the Continental Divide, took a trip to Vail and planned to Horseback ride at Platte Ranch but didn't have a chance to do that.

We shopped in Fairplay, had a beer at the Highest Saloon in the USA in Alma and would recommend this home to others who want to have a great place to relax, base out of and see the great sites in this section of Colorado.

Run down

  • 3 of 5

First, I liked the location- the views from the balcony and living room were absolutely stunning. It's easy to get to and in a good, remote location. There's nobody around, which was nice and private. We had a large group and appreciated having rooms for everyone in our group.

Unfortunately, there quite a few things that were either run-down, dirty, or just misstated. The listing says there's a fitness room. Unless we just never found said room, there was no fitness room. This was one of the features many in our group was looking forward to. We made the best of it by getting outside and going on a few hikes though! When we arrived, one of the bedrooms had a window that said 'Wash Me'. I have no idea how long it had been like that but it looked like awhile. It was in a spot that was easy to get to as well. There were many, many cobwebs in the ceiling and dirt in cracks of the floorboard. There was a cabinet door in the kitchen that literally fell off when we tried to open it. The pots and pans were flimsy and bent when you used them.

To be fair, we didn't bring these things up when we arrived because we didn't want to have to deal with someone being there cleaning and fixing things while we were trying to relax and have fun. And none of it were things we couldn't live with. So it's entirely possible they would have fixed things if we had asked. That is why I am rating it 3 stars and not 2.

Prior to arrival, we were also supposed to receive an email with the door code, which I never received. I even checked my spam folder. I had to call the contact person to get the code. Not a huge deal but worth mentioning so folks have a heads up to be proactive, if need be.

Even though it could accommodate our large group and we had a good time, we all agreed we wouldn't stay here again. I should add that this group gets together twice a year and has for six years so we've stayed in a lot of cabins!

Owner's Response: Hello Andrea, thanks so much for taking the time to provide this feedback! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the property despite a couple of hiccups. We do think it is important to note that an early check in at 1:00 instead of the normal 4:00 and a late check out of 2:00 instead of the normal 10:00 was accommodated for your travel group, and the local contact Kathy did offer to have someone come to the property to clean and repair the cabinet, but was told that it wasn't necessary. We appreciate the feedback and hope that we are able to provide you with an experience that meets your expectations in the future! - The Evolve Team

Rustic Cabin Escape

  • 5 of 5

Amazing, rustic cabin with sweet views right near the continental divide. No doubt, this place is a *great value*. A group of us went up there, and really enjoyed being away from the tourists in Breck (which I hear is the most visited ski resort in the world). That being said, it's about 20-30 mins depending how you drive to the breck area, and the mountain ski pass is good for the other nearby mountains - a-basin, Vail, beaver creek, keystone to go skiing for the day. We also found out about some of the smaller family owned mountains nearby like Monarch which cost around 40$ a day to ski instead of 180$. We really enjoyed the hot tub room after a day of snowboarding and skiing.

True, this place doesn't have the convenience of a ski-in ski-out place, but for that convenience you will definitely pay at least triple the price. This is an excellent place to come with a group, shoot some pool, play some music, enjoy the 2 story fire place, and chill.

We would definitely come back to this place again. Good times had by all.

South Dakota/Wyoming/Colorado invasion

  • 4 of 5

We gathered family together across 3 states for a pre-Christmas celebration and had a wonderful time at this cabin. It's so spacious and comfortable! If you are expecting 5 star hotel-like accommodations, this is not it... It's a BIG mountain cabin. But for our loud, fire place loving, beer drinking, pool shooting family, it was perfect! It's out of the way and close to absolutely nothing - and that's the kind of getaway we were looking for.

Incredible! Spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely fantastic! The views are spectacular! You can see at least 4 mountain peaks that are 14,000 ft. and above. Its close to Breckenridge, and many great hikes/snow shoeing trails. However, I found that I really liked the smaller mountain towns nearby (Alma + Fairplay), and the historic South Park village. The home is welcoming and beautifully decorated in vintage western lodge decor. Very private, fireplaces on 2 levels, and a seperate jacuzzi room with a great view of its own. A great escape from the city.
