"What a wonderful retreat for us! Driving up here for the weekend from Tulsa, OK, and staying in this bit of paradise was just what we needed. This is a wonderful place, and we will be back to visit here again and again......thanks for sharing your space in heaven."

"Our three year old son led his first hike today, taking us up the St. Vrain and face-to-face with some moose. a mama and her calf crossed the trail just fifteen yards ahead of us; my closest siting ever of moose. This marks our second weekend here, and we'll be sure to be back."

"What a little treasure this place is. I'm glad it found us! We've come up from Boulder on a little honeymoon getaway with our sweet 3-month old son. The screened-in porch was such a treat, no worries about bugs. I loved the kitchen...made all sorts of wonderful delights. We hope to return and experience the valley in a different season."

"Many many thanks for allowing us to be a part of your Colorado paradise. The charm and warmth of your cabin has slowed the pace down for our family, a much needed pace. We horseback rode, hiked, fished, and were escorted to some of the most breathtaking views I've ever laid my eyes on. Although the heartrate got pretty fast for us out-of-shape ones, the climb to "three bears" will be a lasting memory for us all. Thank you for all. Hope to see you next year."

"No security deposit, no credit card...just like the old days. I went to get some milk at the little convenience store in Raymond...and it was like a trip to the past. So funny that things like that could still amaze me. We loved the cabin stay."
We stayed 5 nights (usually stay 3) and this is always a pleasant experience: cozy, clean, convenient. We love the privacy and feel of deep woods, even though we are minutes away from many activities. The well appointed kitchen is fun to prepare meals... Wood stove keeps us warm and toasty... love the fact our cell phones don't work, and no cable TV! We hiked, drove to Estes Park, Moffat Tunnel, explored and enjoyed the outdoors with movies at night. The owners are responsive and keep in touch in timely and friendly communication. Easy to work with!
We were looking for a place to spend with my daughter that would take us away from the routine of daily life. This is the place to be. The beautiful area that the cabin is in, the perfectly warm fire stove and the most fun was the collection of movies that were from our era, it was fantastic. It was a way to recharge away from the crazy day to day life we all live. Our dogs loved the outdoor fresh air and the ability to run off extra energy and fall asleep by the fire in the evening. Thank you so much for sharing your cottage with our family.
This was the most unique mountain experience we have ever had. My boyfriend and I spent 5 amazing nights here and cannot wait to return. The cabin is secluded and deep into the mountains, no cell phone service (fortunately) and the drive to and from was very beautiful. This is the best place we have ever stayed! Thank you so much! The cabin is so great, we wished we owned it!
We just spent 6 wonderful nights in this cabin! Within 5 minutes of walking in the front door, I said, "I want to buy this cabin!" :-) It's perfect. It's charming, rustic, quiet, peaceful, and on and on.
We came from the east, so we stopped in Longmont to get groceries for the week (thanks to the owners for pointing out the need to do our shopping in town). The drive from Longmont to Lyons is standard highway. Then from Lyons out to the cabin, you wind through the mountains and see the most gorgeous scenery. Our GPS directions got us to the cabin with no problem at all. The cabin is exactly the one of my dreams- tucked into the woods. Yes, there are other cabins in the areas (as the owners state), but it's not a campground. It's like a little neighborhood, with each cabin tucked into the trees, and seemingly miles from one another. It was quiet and private. We built a fire every evening, and slept with the windows cracked open just enough to breathe that crisp mountain air. The cabin decor is lovely- simple, lovely, a reminder of simpler times. I sat on the front porch each morning, watching the wildlife. We ate breakfast around the fire pit, as the same little squirrel packed away goodies for the winter. We hiked nearby, and had a wonderful vacation. Rocky Mountain National Park was about a 40 minute drive, but every mile is gorgeous so we enjoyed every bit of it. Thanks to Katy and Tom, for allowing us to share their beautiful home. We look forward to coming back again!!

My husband and I stayed here for New Years and it was wonderful. The cabin has everything you need to enjoy your mountain stay. We were able to snow shoe right down the street and our pup loved laying by the fire at night. We can wait to come back and experience the cabin in the summer!
My friend and I had a wonderful weekend at this cabin the weekend before Christmas. It was so nice to get away from all the city crowds and spend some quiet time in the mountains.
We really enjoyed the wood-burning stove which made it very cozy and the cabin was super comfortable, just as described.
On Saturday we drove to Black Hawk and hiked up the Old Tram Rd. in the snow. It was a beautiful day and we had a great hike. Afterwards, we went into some of the casinos in Central City and had fun there.
The owners were very helpful in providing directions and information and responded very promptly to my emails. Thanks so much, we hope to be back!
