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.

Comfy cabin

  • 5 of 5

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.

Relaxing Couple's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The drive to nearby ski resorts was easy and not far as we originally expected. If you are visiting on the weekend during peak season, make reservations for snow mobiles and other snow activities other than skiing ahead of time. Bruce and Annie were very hospitable and helpful. We were traveling with another couple and we all had a Great time.

The pictures don't do this cabin justice. After first settling in, I built a fire inside to warm up. We had drinks and relaxed after a day of travel. The next day after skiing, we jumped in the hot tub and listened to the running water in the creek. Relaxing to say the least. We had 6 of us in our group, married couples. We were never crowded. Oh and we were only 3 minutes from town.. Bruce, the property manager, was awesome and supportive. So to sum it up in one word, this place was perfect.

Comfortable Creekside Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin to spend time with our son who lives down at Fort Carson. The location was great, convenient to Denver, skiing, hiking and casinos. We watched a snow storm from the hot tub and through the wall of windows, it was beautiful. The cabin has plenty of very comfortable seating and the beds were comfy too. The bridge and the setting are lovely.
