Wonderful Anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

I decided to take my husband on a getaway for our 24th anniversary and I'm so glad I found this little cabin. It was just perfect for us. It was rustic but had everything we needed! Michael, the owner, suggested we do our grocery shopping before getting there, but I suggest waiting. We weren't sure what all would be there and ended up buying some essentials we didn't need like coffee, salt & pepper, ketchup, etc. If you'd like to shop before getting to the cabin, ask Michael what others have left behind so you don't waste money like we did. Other than that, we have NO complaints! It's so quiet and private with only the occasional car passing by. There are lots of windows to open up to let the fresh mountain air in. The leaves were changing colors, the weather was PERFECT, and we even got to see the Super Moon Lunar Eclipse. We had a group of mule deer visit our back yard in the evenings and that thrilled me to pieces. There were lots of birds and little chipmunks around. Downtown Evergreen is adorable! Lots of great little shops and eateries. Visiting the Little Bear is a must! The lake was just beautiful to see. We hiked at Maxwell Falls and saw lots of wildlife, and other hikers with families and dogs. If anyone is wanting to get away from the craziness of everyday life, check this place out! The owner is super nice and willing to help with anything. And he's really quick about returning the $100 cleaning deposit. I really hope we get to visit Evergreen, CO again some day and we'll definitely check out one of Michael's cabins if we do.

A Quality Experience

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend selected this cozy, profoundly quiet, esthetically beautiful, romantic slice of heaven for our first Valentine's Day celebration. Having traveled around the world and owned my own vacation rentals, I'm not an easy sell. And yet I found this little chalet and the owner of it impeccable. The detail of the naughty pine interior is exquisite. From the rough hewn shelving to the Rorschach-like ceilings, everywhere you look brings a smile. We even saw deer in the street. It's a place where fun and frisky memories can easily be made.

Cozy Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I really enjoyed this cozy cabin. We wanted to spend Thanksgiving in the mountains! The cabin is fully stocked with towels, sheets, kitchen items (pots, pans, dishes, glasses, silverware, toaster, coffee maker, etc..) They even left us a turkey roasting pan. ;) We spent Thursday & Friday at the cabin & just relaxed. There is a small movie/DVD/music library to enjoy. Saturday, we ventured out for some hiking at Maxwell Falls. Then went to Evergreen for lunch & a walk around the lake.

Very quiet & beautiful cabin community. We saw a couple of bucks walk through the property.

Michael was very nice, helpful & quick to respond to any email or text. He supplied plenty of information & great directions to cabin. He also promptly refunded out cleaning deposit the next day.

Thank you so much!

Great Night at the Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We spent the night at the Chalet while traveling to Denver. Very glad we decided to stay outside the city and near the Evergreen area. Home is fully stocked, exceptionally crafted and cozy. Truly like a second home. There is plenty of privacy and opportunities for wildlife viewing. Also, a great nighty sky for viewing. Will be renting from Michael anytime we are in the area.

Rustic Heaven

  • 5 of 5

I reserved this chalet as a surprise for my husband on our anniversary! It was exactly what I was hoping for. Tucked way up in the mountains, extremely quiet, surrounded by forest, comfortable bed and couches, basic shower, bathroom and kitchen. Amazing what they fit inside this tiny a-frame! We had such a lovely peaceful time! Michael stopped by as we were checking out to see how our stay was. He was very friendly. And, on that note, he was extremely timely in replying to my emails, phone calls and texts during all the planning. Super great! We will absolutely be visiting again!! (note, we drove the motorcycle up without knowing there were several dirt road switch backs for the last stretch. It was fine, but we'll bring the Jeep next time!)
