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.

Highly recommend!.

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was extremely clean and truly exceeded our expectations! Owner was friendly and quick to respond to questions and concerns. Loved the location not too far out of town, but yet in a secluded location. Was in a central location for us since we visited both Rocky Mountain National Park and the Royal Gorge. Neighbors were friendly. I would definitely return to this lodge again!

Beautiful home with spacious areas overlooking forest and mountains

Our family had a wonderful experience staying here. Quiet, gorgeous scenery with lots of space. Clean and fully working amenities. Games were a nice perk for the kids to pass time in the evenings. Great spot!

Rudi Lodge

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin for our family! Were in Golden for a wedding and stayed at Rudi for

a week. We all enjoyed the spaciousness of the cabin as well as the view off the

jumbo deck. One afternoon we saw 3 buck deer browsing just below. Great Stay

Perfect for relaxing family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was fabulous! I had planned a long getaway weekend for our family (me, husband, & two adult sons) just to reconnect and enjoy some time together in a place (Colorado) that we had always dreamed of going to. This was the perfect solution.

The lodge was exactly as described and we loved the location--far enough out to feel "away from it all" but close enough to so many things to see and do! We took easy day trips to Boulder, Golden, and Nederland and so much enjoyed hiking and taking in the beautiful mountain country. We even saw 3 moose (bull, mama, and calf!) at a pond outside of Nederland which was pretty exciting for us.

Communication with the owner Kim was top-notch--she kept us up-to-date with all the information we needed for easy check-in and made herself available if we needed her for anything (which we didn't but I appreciated her availability).

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a get-away place that is private, spacious, and provides the feeling of being right at home! We would return in a heartbeat if we're back in the area--which actually is a very distinct possibility because we had such an amazing trip this time!

Owner's Response: Wow. What a fabulous review! I love it when guests are so incredibly happy with their stay. Looks like you guys were able to check out a lot of Colorado in just a short amount of time and then come home to peace and quiet. Yeah. Please come back and see us again. We would love it.

Cozy mountain home close to several fun activities

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cozy mountain home. It was well stocked with everything we needed and it was nice and roomy for our family of 5. The kids enjoyed playing outside while mom and dad sat on the deck overlooking beautiful woods and mountains. The home is about a 30-minute drive from Boulder and about an hour drive to Denver. We spent days in several of the towns around this home participating in the Boulder Farmers Market, a tour of Celestial Seasonings, a tour of the Denver Mint, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, a delightful train ride on the Georgetown Loop Railroad, and zip lining in Idaho Springs. So as you can see, there are lots to do, but you will have to drive to get to these destinations. However, it was nice to be able to have a home to come home to at night that was peaceful. Thanks, Kim, for everything!

Owner's Response: Dear Shana, Thank you so much for such a great review and for taking such great care of our property! You certainly experienced many things on your trip. That is one thing we hear a lot is that the lodge is so well situated to enjoy so many different places. Next time you might want to consider Rocky Mountain National Park, Golden Canyon State Park, Eldorado Springs and Nederland. If you come in the winter Eldora Ski resort is only about a half hour away as well. Blessings, Kim

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 glad that you and your guests had a great time and enjoyed the lodge as well as being sorry for the interaction. As you know there was other damage to the property apart from the stove. We have to be reimbursed when this happens 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. I'm just sorry that you had to experience it. Kim
