About Ann Loeffler
We bought this cabin to enjoy what brought us to Colorado over 10 years ago. We have traveled and lived in many parts of the world, ranging from New Jersey to Ohio to Tokyo, and our cabin is unrivaled for its beauty, solitude, excitement, and rejuvenation. Since we plan to do some more travelling, we thought we'd open up our cabin for others to enjoy. This cabin is a special place our family enjoys, and we hope it can be that kind of place for you as well.
Ann Loeffler purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Ann Loeffler chose Valley of the Sun
Top 10 things we love about this cabin: 1) Not driving on I-70 to get access to the most gorgeous parts of Colorado; 2) Not seeing any other homes or neighbors outside our windows; 3) Sitting around the stone hearth and fireplace while playing board games and telling stories; 4) Hiking 14ers from trailheads only minutes away; 5) Soaking in hot springs only 30 minutes away; 6) Seeing moose, elk, and other wildlife all the time; 7) Hiking the Red X trail; 8) Seeing our kids building forts and making their own fun in nature; 9) Easy access to Breckenridge for skiing and more touristy stuff; 10) Hanging with the Alma locals--artists, musicians, and other interesting characters at the South Park Saloon.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our taste is very simple and informed by our travels around the world. On our bookshelves, you'll find maps, nature guides, and works by Tolstoy and Neruda, as well as Dr. Seuss. On our walls, you will find original art work and framed trail maps from past and present. Our home is decorated with simplicity in mind, just 'mountain modern' decor. This is our Happy Place, and we hope to make it yours too.

This property was perfect for what we were looking for. It was remote from the craziness of life and offered the amenities we wanted and needed.
We saw Moose and Elk close but not to close to the property and we enjoyed our outdoor fires.
Breckenridge and Buena Vista we’re close enough for the all day activities we had planned. The other days we enjoyed our hikes and just resting.
I thought the property was as advertised.
I had a great time in a beautiful setting! This is a real cabin, loved sitting on the front porch! I will stay here again if possible.
Great cabin in the woods!
Beautiful cabin in a beautiful setting. Clean as a whistle and superb privacy. Quality restaurants 15 minutes away. Great trout fishing as well.
We stayed at this cabin for three nights. Our one year old loved playing in the snow and hiking the red x trail. His new favorite word is “cabin” and he has been asking to go back. The cabin was wonderful and we will definitely stay again if we make our way back to the area.
Great weekend getaway
My Partner and I really loved our stay at this wonderful cabin. It's deep enough in the woods for perfect peace and quiet but still just a few minutes to town in case you needs something from the market.
It's the perfect size for a small family but for just the two of us it was awesome. The owner provide everything you need to feel comfortable and more than expected in the kitchen.
The local fishing was great too. We'd only wished it was a little warmer to explore a bit more; though sitting inside with a warm fire while it snowed was incredibly relaxing.
Overall a great experience and we look forward to returning.
Would have preferred a little more living space, maybe with reclining chairs. It was a great time, not disappointed at all. We left unopened staples rather than throw them out.
Secluded among the aspen and evergreens, you are likely to see hummingbirds, moose, elk, and other wildlife especially near the lakes and ponds just by stepping outside your door. Go for a hike on our 10 acres of woodlands, or tackle one of the many non-techhnical 14-ers (14,000+ mountain peaks) within 15 minutes of the cabin. Enjoy live music with the laid back locals in Alma, North America's highest town. Peruse or create your own fine art at Coyote Creek Gallery in Fairplay. Kids' nature activities abound at the Beaver Creek Environmental Center only a couple of miles from the cabin. Head south of the cabin to soak in the hot springs and get a massage at Cottonwood Hot Springs in Buena Vista, where you can also enjoy craft beer at Eddyline Brewery and get fresh cheese from the local goat farm. Or you can cross the continental divide 20 minutes away and head into Breckenridge for its many tourist attractions--shops, mountain adventure park, and more great hiking! And at night when you're sitting by the roaring fire and stone hearth, don't forget to step outside and gaze at the multitude of stars!
