About Bruce or Annie Russell

Hi, We are active folks that love to travel, bike, hike, etc. The Cabin has been our nest that we built a few years ago as a second home. Our RV has seen us a lot lately. It continues to be enjoyed by us and our family including kids and grand kids. We decided to have others enjoy it as well.

Why Bruce or Annie Russell chose Idaho Springs

We chose this unique location because of its central location to recreation, including skiing, hiking, fishing and rafting, and the city. We fell in love with its special setting on the River and built the Cabin as a second home. When we are not traveling visiting kids and grand kids or for business or pleasure we hang our hat here. It lends itself to guests that don't get hang out in the mountains. Skiing, hiking biking, rafting, fishing all here. So enjoy.

What makes this cabin unique

The LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION is so amazing. A few minutes one way to Denver, a few minutes the other to ski areas. Hiking, biking, rafting, dining, shopping...its all so close. And easy to get to I-70 in 2 minutes.

And of course.... Nature is all around. Beauty is all around. Mountains are all around. History is all around. The Cabin can be a blend of mountain stream side relaxation and recreation or an urban experience. When you get here you will understand!

280+ SUNSHINE days... We are in the middle of the great outdoors in a Cabin that is a pretty nice place to hang out relaxing all day and all night in all the seasons. Or in just a few minutes be hiking, skiing, biking, rafting... etc etc. The Cabin is just short of the 8000 ft elevation so in the Summer the evenings are cool. Bring a lite jacket just in case you want to sit by the stream at night. In the Winter, if the sun is out we can bask in the Sun having our mid morning coffee on the front porch. Colorado climate is typically dry and sunny.

The property and house are amazing! Sitting by the river with a little fire going in the fire pit with a glass of wine is all you need. We got ten inches of snow one day there and it was so beautiful looking at it through the large windows. Also, sitting in the hot tub at night with the snow all around was like you were in a Christmas wonderland. The location is great. We easily drove to Vail, Colorado Springs, Fairplay, Rocky Mountain National Park, etc., basically every direction. Idaho Springs is such a cute town with great restaurants.The casinos close by in Blackhawk and Central City were a lot of fun and we had very good luck there. I would definitely stay here again. Bruce and Annie are wonderful hosts.

Homey with everything you need! (:

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with my Mom and brother to celebrate my Mom's 60th Bday. We enjoyed our stay here at the cabin. It was clean and very homey. We can't think of anything we needed that wasnt there. We did not use the kitchen on this trip, but looked like it had everything one would need. We have used Homeaway several times, and this is the 1st home which had an ample amount of Kleenex's, we always pack our own, but just added plus to us (: Thank you! The location was great! This cabin was at the bottom of the road and close to town. Bruce and Annie were great about communicating and even had the cabin ready a little early for us without even asking. Greatly appreciated(: If you need anything, I believe they would get back to you ASAP.

We would definitely stay here again. Thanks again Bruce and Annie for sharing your beautiful home.

Everything you need for a Colorado get away

  • 5 of 5

My group had a wonderful time at this rental and it was everything we expected. Bruce provided an excellent instruction booklet about how to make the most of your stay, and the hot tub and fire places(s) were the icing on the cake. The rental house was prepared as expected and we left it as agreed and had no issues getting deposits back. The quality and condition of the rental property was excellent.

Comfy cabin

My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. It's a beautiful, private place and it was nice to have a comfortable place to come back to after our adventures. The owners are very kind and have a great sense of humor.
