Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from spending 5 nights in this cabin on the Saint Vrain River and could not have been happier. An absolutely ideal setting right along the river. The cabin was perfectly quaint but with plenty of room. We utilized all of the outdoor areas and loved them all. Kids spent hours outside exploring while mom and dad were able to relax on the deck in the colorado sun. We will absolutely make another trip back to stay here!

Why Russell Haack chose Lyons

Many Times Renovated And Updated With Some Old Time Charm Like The Stove From The Yesteryears.

( Very Powerful And Marveled Over By Many). This Cabin Survived The 1000 Year Flood That We Just Experienced Here In Colorado The End Of 2013. Our Land That Was Swept Away Is All Replaced And Secured Again. And Made Better As Before.


Colorful Hot Air Ballon Rides On The Outskirts Of Boulder Is Great For Those Who Enjoy Seeing The Area From A Bird's Eye View Perspective.

Boulder, A Quick And Scenic 30 Minute Drive, Is One Of Colorado's More Popular 'tourist Traps'. This College Town Nestled At The Foot Of The Rocky Mountains Has Something To Offer For Everyone. From Nature Walks To Shopping. When It Comes To Entertainment Boulder's Pearl Street Mall Is A Must See. Street Performers From Around The United States Congregate And Share Their Special Talents With The Numerous Passerby Traffic. Right Off The Mall You Can Visit The Boulderado Hotel For An Ambient Old West Feel Inclusive Of Some Local Ghosts Who Are Known To Haunt The Rooms And Hallways.

Speaking Of Ghosts, Estes Park Hosts Another Hotel With With Ghosts Stories Galore. Rocky Mountain National Park Has Its Main Entrance At The Edge Of Estes Park And Is One Of The Main Attractions To This Area. Our Cabin Is Just 10 Min. From The Secondary Entrance. Horseback Riding Is Also Very Popular In This Neck Of The Woods. Again Just 10 Minutes Form The Cabin You'll Find Two Possible Horse Rentals Stalls.

Indian Hot Springs In Idaho Springs With Geothermal Caves And Mud Baths, Spring Fed Pool Are A Scenic One And A Half Hour Drive Away.

And It's Possible To Pan For Gold In The River In The Backyard.
