Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This cozy cabin has a wood stove, two bedrooms, a full kitchen and bath. There are various board games, a guitar, a TV with built in/DVD (Bring your own DVDs) and even an old fashioned typewriter for your entertainment! But NO wifi and only a modest signal from AT&T for cellular coverage.

Soak in stillness or hike directly into the National Forest! If weather permits we can host a campfire evening for $30, wood included!

Nederland or Black Hawk just 20 minutes away!

The space
You will be staying in the lower half of an A-Frame with your own private entrance. There is no access to the upper part of the house from inside so it feels very private. The caretaker lives upstairs and comes/goes from the rear of the dwelling. Typically, you won't even know she is there but you may hear her walking around at times.

For entertainment we have a TV with a built in DVD. The Nederland library has DVDs you can check out under our account or bring some with you...

We also have 2 sets of snowshoes you are welcomed to use. There are 2 places in Nederland where you can rent more...

The living room has a wood stove that makes for a cozy space on cold winter evenings. The front porch overlooks the beautiful Rocky Mountains!

We provide coffee and sugar but you will need to bring creamers of your choice. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans and utensils.

There is no wifi at the house and the only cellular service in the area is AT&T. Be prepared to unplug and entertain yourself like the days before the internet... there are various board games, playing cards, and even a guitar for your use!

National Forest trails extend directly into the wilderness from the house. You are welcomed to explore to your heart's content.

Guest access
The house is located at the far end of Lump Gulch. You have a parking area for 2-3 cars and a private entrance to the lower part of the A-Frame. The private, covered porch and entire lower level is for your exclusive use. Our caretaker lives upstairs but you will have no contact unless you report some issue that requires their attention during your stay.

In these winter months you will need an AWD vehicle in these mountain roads - don't be caught sliding around in a 2WD car or minivan! You also need to know how to drive in snowy conditions (keep tires from spinning, go extra slow, avoid drifts, stay away from side ditches, etc... ).

Also, be prepared to have a true mountain experience complete with drifting snow and unplowed roads during heavy snowfall. When the snow comes it comes hard and will drift in sidewalks and driveways in a matter of minutes... so set your expectations properly! Some days are breathtakingly beautiful and some days have strong horizontal snow! Dress warm and be ready to brave the elements and experience a true mountain winter wonderland! In very heavy weather the driveway may not get plowed before checkin as the plows are trying to get to all the customers... but we will do our best to help you get into the cabin. The roads are not steep and there are no cliffs to slide off - but we are remote and secluded!

Other things to note
We have phone service for AT&T customers in the area and spotty coverage for some others. So, if you have other carriers save check in information prior to arriving!

In the winter the roads may not be plowed in a timely manner and if the storm is large our driveway can be a challenge. Be prepared to experience true mountain conditions!

Our neighborhood is incredibly quiet. Night-time is especially peaceful and with hardly any light pollution the star gazing is intense! We ask that you keep noise down after 10pm to preserve the serenity...

I have simple needs, but big dreams for community and sustainability. I love the outdoors and all the activities it offers. Skiing, mountain biking just to name a few passions. I am lucky enough to have a home in the beautiful mountains that I want to share with like-minded travelers. I want to offer low impact, eco-friendly accommodations to visitors.
