This cabin is responsible for my greatest memories...

  • 5 of 5

This cabin holds a special place in my heart. You see, my family built this cabin. By hand. Cutting down every single log. Sweat equity, or labor of love, they call it. It's been updated beautifully by the new owners, but I can still picture the cabin of my youth clearly. I spent my entire childhood, and some of my adult life at that cabin. The slanted ceilings upstairs, and reading by lantern light in the evenings. The 70s sports wallpaper in the children's room, reflecting the era the cabin was built. Fighting with my cousins over the pillow mattress, as it was so soft that you would simply sink down into it. During my childhood, there were so many trees around the cabin, that you couldn't see any neighbors at all. The light barely floated down from the trees, reflecting a soft green glow on the grounds. I saw another reviewer comment on seeing the neighbors. But the upside to less trees would be the view of the stars. They were brilliant up there when I was younger :) In my youth, we would come running back from the lake with a string full of trout, which my grandfather would cook on the grill for us. Hike the many trails, hunting for wild raspberries that my grandmother would make into jam. The grandfather clock on the stairs that would chime beautifully every hour. Walking over to the beaver ponds, hand in hand with my grandmother singing 'Give Said the Little Stream' . Watching for the Momma moose, who every year had twins. One time, nearly walking into her as I was walking with my own children. Us both frozen in fear, but letting each other pass with our wee ones, a mutual understanding that only a mother knows. Or sitting patiently under the hummingbird feeder until a hummingbird landed on our fingers. My grandmother loved the hummingbirds. She's the reason they flock there in droves. She enticed them in many years ago. I think her memory floats on their wings. Her failing health and their age was the reason for having to part with such a treasure. But I think of it often. Especially as it brought so much joy to my grandmother in particular. It's a place of immeasurable beauty. And my only hope is that it brings as much happiness to it's visitors, as it always did to all of us. Blessings.

Nice relaxing week in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin and owners. Great location for hiking/backpaking base, boating on lake granby, wildlife viewing and relaxing. We enjoyed exploring the area during the day and cooking over the fire pit at night. Don't expect to have any wifi/cell service or TV, you're tucked back in a mountain valley and you don't need that stuff anyway, just enjoy nature.

Decent cabin & pleasant stay

  • 3 of 5

My two buds and I enjoyed our Colorado visit very much. Our cabin was OK and provided suitable accommodations. When we did our initial search and checked the satellite view on Google Maps, it appeared the cabin was quite remote; however, when we arrived it was settled closely among several other cabins, many of which had crap in their front and back yards. We were hoping for more desolation given the long ride through the back woods to get there. The views were limited and mediocre. The beds were average and somewhat old. The place was clean and well provided. Overall, the place was good but we were hoping for better. You get what you pay for and this place may have been a bit overpriced.
