Fabulous property for the price

  • 5 of 5

Great effort to keep the property updated and comfortable - Deck in back was wonderful to have meals, coffee, and relax in the serenity of the mountains. This remote lodge is a wonderful choice located on a winding road to enjoy hiking at the El Dorado Canyon and Roosevelt Nat'l Park. Kim, the owner, was available to help with any immediate questions and concerns. We appreciated her great communication throughout our rental process. We had plenty of space for our family of six adults and a child. A great time was had by all in our family.

Very comfortable for our group (5 guys), and perfect location for Red Rocks to Fort Collins

  • 5 of 5

Everything went smoothly, from reservations to correspondences to accomodations. Plenty of kitchen supplies to do all your cooking, grilling there if you so choose. Never ran out of hot water either! Not only would I recommend this place, I plan on coming back. Great spot.

Perfect stay for our island family!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful place had everything we needed to make us feel at home...lots of pillows, blankets, towels. Your kitchen had everything needed for cooking, baking, frying, crock pot, coffee pot, etc...The view was absolutely stunning, and the animals roaming were wonderful. It was a perfect place to celebrate a college graduate and for us Hawaiian islanders to see how nice it is to be way up in the cool mountains! Location was central so we took the opportunity to go to Golden, Black Hawk and Boulder. Thank you for opening your home to us!

A perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling with 5 adults and one child and there was enough space for all of us! We enjoyed playing in the snow on property and sitting on the porch. We cooked many meals inside and on the BBQ pit. We also enjoyed hiking at a nearby national park! We were traveling to CO for some family time in the snow and this home was perfect for just that! The owner quickly responds and was very easy to get ahold of.

The day bed in a spare room has a very uncomfortable mattress but is totally fine for kids. So just a heads up if you're planning for an adult to sleep on it. Driveway is a bit steep I would suggest a SUV/truck in the winter. The only thing this cabin is missing is a true fireplace! The one it has does give out heat but is closed and you can't see the fire for enjoyment.

We will definitely be back to this cabin!!

Rudi Lodge

The lodge was awesome for our family vacation, spacious and well equiped. The views were breathtaking. After a large snowfall the owners graciously plowed out our driveway promptly after we called and called us back to check that it had been done. Great experience!
