Coal Creek Canyon Lodge Rental Photos and Description

RIDETOREDROCKS CONCERT TRANSPORT, Golden, Boulder, Blackhawk, Denver, Ski

'This lodge has all of the amenities of a luxury home and is located in a semi-secluded area. We felt like we were truly getting away from the hustle and bustle of life with the added bonus of being close to the Denver area.'

'Just returned from 5 days at this wonderful home with my family. Tucked into the mountains, this is a beautiful, rustic but updated home ...close enough for easy trips into the wonderful towns of Boulder and Golden. Hiking trails abound in the Boulder/Golden area, all within short driving distance. Eldora Ski Resort is great for skiers of all levels, close by, and the views on the drive through the mountains one of the most beautiful you will experience.....The home is well furnished and equipped and communications with the owner are excellent.'

Great place, very enjoyable stay but some problems with the owners

  • 3 of 5

Very nice place. We stayed 9 days in late summer with a small group of friends & family and hosted a couple of local family gatherings. Everyone had a great time! The cabin is nicely positioned for day trips to Boulder, Golden or even Estes Park. Unfortunately the good times were soured by interactions with the owners at time of departure and after. We were accused of damaging the stove top surface and later told there was nothing wrong, accused of not taking the trash to the dumpster when the cabin instructions clearly state to leave it in the laundry room. I had to make multiple calls to VRBO to get the security deposit refunded and was told by the owners to "be patient". There were other "disagreements" as well but, out of appreciation for the fun & fellowship that this place offers, I will leave them unstated here. I hope your stay is as enjoyable as ours without all the hassle on the back end.

Owner's Response: Larry, I am sorry for the interaction but when there is damage to the property we have to be reimbursed and that is why we filed an insurance claim but still refunded your deposit. Fortunately this type of thing has only happened 3 times out of over 250 guests. Kim

Had a great time at the cabin. Very clean and had many things we needed. Four of us had all the room we needed. Other than the owner stopping by then the orkin man showing up it was a very nice and private stay.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for letting us come in on this rare occasion and do repairs We are always mindful of our guests privacy and of course always ask permission to enter the lodge if it is absolutely necessary. The reason why Orkin was there is that there were bees in the shed which was taken care of. Feel free to come and enjoy yourself again, we would love to have you. Best to you, Kim

Summer family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a good time at this house. Had 10 people fit comfortably. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Our children loved the wii,(bring own games and extra controllers with nunchuks) and the fooseball table. The sunsets and sunrises were amazing out on the balcony.

Wi-Fi is available but limited due to being in the mountains, also no cell service being so high up in mountains.

Overall a wonderful house and close to Golden.

Thanks so much for letting us stay there

My MN family of 6 went to Colorado to go to a concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. We wanted to stay in the mountains/foothills closeby & found Rudi Lodge on the VRBO site. After looking at the pictures that were posted, we all agreed that the space would work for our group. We flew into DIA, rented a vehicle, stocked up on groceries and headed for the Lodge. It was about an hour's drive with the last 10 mins being a steep, winding, dirt road. The driveway to the Lodge was newly black-topped and led to a nice garage. The Lodge is rustic on the outside but very modern on the inside. The posted pictures make the space look larger than it really is, but there is still plenty of room inside. The kitchen was well-stocked, bathrooms clean & functional, furniture & beds very comfortable and the deck was a great place to sit & enjoy the view. There is no A/C in the Lodge, but large ceiling fans in every room helped a lot. We packed our lunch each morning & headed out on daily adventures. It was always nice to come "home" to the Lodge, make a nice dinner and relax on the deck. The stars were amazing! We would love to visit again. Thanks, Kim.
