Princeton Hot Springs Pools. Visit the recently awarded Browns Canyon National Park, which is just a short drive away.

Our 1,200 sq.ft., two bedroom Log Cabin is surrounded by spectacular quaking Aspens and Mature Pines, with views of Mt. Princeton and Antero just outside your living room/kitchen windows. Relax on one of two decks, or enjoy sitting in a forest eco-system overlooking the rushing waters of Chalk Creek. Enjoy the outdoor fire pit on cool nights. If you enjoy fishing, test your skills in one of the many nearby lakes, or just walk a few feet down to your private 200 feet of creekside fishing.

Our authentic Log Cabin has a Southwestern/Mountain decor and has been restored with all the modern conveniences while maintaining its rustic charm. The living room has a large wood burning fireplace, satellite with 42" flat screen TV/DVD,CD player, Vaulted tongue and groove Aspen ceilings, and ample seating.

The master bedroom has a luxurious king-size bed, vaulted ceilings, skylights with block out shades and 32" flat screen tv. The second bedroom has two twin size beds.

The large kitchen/dining area has all the modern conveniences along with a working antique cast iron cook stove, if you choose to cook the old fashion way.

Loved the creek!!! Mountain view was amazing

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our family of 4. Beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped to make meals, we enjoyed using the old cast iron stove. Likes having the fire pit option outside, however we used the fireplace inside much more as it was fairly cold during our visit. Lots of trails around if you want to explore on dirt bikes or four wheelers. The Mount Princeton hot springs are close by if your goal is relaxing. The closest grocery store that we found was in Buena Vista if you need to buy food etc. We hope to make it back again sometime.

Excellent retreat location for a break!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this cabin. It was very convenient to ride our ATV's directly from the cabin to the trails that we had planned to ride. We slept very well after an ATV trip at 92 miles and spent our extra time on the deck playing games and fishing. Great mountain retreat for anyone who needs to get away from a busy life for a while! Peaceful, quiet and beautiful!

Peaceful, Cabin on River

We loved our stay on the river! Great location, nice inside. Love the burl wood tables and antler chandelier! Curt and Katie the owners were really nice, and receptive to our needs. I would definitely stay there again!

Charming home, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our visit and already miss this fantastic cabin! There were so many adventures to be had nearby, and coming home to a cozy cabin each night was just ideal.

Lovely location, cabin with charm.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the wonderful views, and the cabin charm of this property. It did need some upgrades as the screen door was torn and we had some wasps to dispose of. The king bed mattress is in need of immediate replacement, so uncomfortable that one of us had to sleep in the extra bedroom with the twin bed. Kitchen pots and pans could be upgraded also. Internet service worked fairly well, but there is no cell service here. If you want to not be tied to your phone, that could be a good thing. But fresh air, lovely setting, and the sounds of the creek made up for some deficiencies.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you found our rustic cabin in the mountains not up to your standards. Regarding our king size bed, that bed is only 2 years old and it has a memory foam cover. We have had other comments on how comfortable the bed was. Obviously everyone's different and we can't keep changing out beds to meet everyone's personal preference. Regarding out pots and pans, we have an over supply of pots and pans. Can't believe you couldn't find one to meet your needs.
