Roostahaus is a newly renovated, cozy cabin located on 2 acres of level wooded property directly adjacent to National Forest. Quiet and secluded, the cabin is a perfect mountain retreat to relax and unwind. Beautiful hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and hunting close by. Jefferson is an easy drive from Denver, 70 miles along scenic 285. Breckenridge is about an hour away for a fun day trip.

The space
Check-in is via lockbox.
Pike National Forest hiking trails are only 100 yards from the front door! We provide plenty of guidebooks and maps at the cabin to help planning hiking, biking, or fishing outings. There is a great 20 minute hike to a small "shrine" with beautiful views of South Park, and the Mosquito range that we like to do at dusk or first thing in the morning. This trail continues to North Tarryall Mt., about a 3 hour round trip. You can even hike to the Colorado Trail from Roostahaus. Tarryall Reservoir is a quick 10 minute drive from the cabin and feel free to use our canoe, we supply life jackets and paddles, or just fish from the bank. Fairplay is only 30 minutes away with several 14ers to climb in the area, including Mt. Sherman, Democrat, and Quandary Peak. In the summer you can drive to Breckenridge over paved Hoosier Pass, or take the dirt road over historic Boreas Pass.

If you are coming from outside Colorado, or outside the US, and you are looking for a great central location where you can spend a week and do all the great Colorado activities you are dreaming of, this is a great place for you. It is quiet, fairly secluded, comfortable, and well-appointed. Out the door you can hike, mountain bike, and fish. Within 30 minutes, you can climb 14ers, pan for gold in Fairplay, visit a historic mining town, ride horses, snowmobile, snowshoe, 4WD, go rockhounding, or hunt. In about 1 hour you can be in Breckenridge, with everything that a ski resort town offers.

However, if you want peace and quiet, and get away from I-70 crowds, see the stars, and just relax, Roostahaus is for you. Could be a great place to write a book! Or brainstorm some new business ideas? Or spend some quality time with the kids, wandering in the woods. We can help you plan a week of adventure, a weekend of relaxation, or anything in between.

Where you’ll be

Jefferson, Colorado, United States

Pike National Forest is located directly across the street from the cabin with access to great trails and scenic views. If you stay at Roosthaus between Thanksgiving and Christmas, get a tree permit from the Forest Service Office in Fairplay to cut down your own tree right across the street from where you are staying.

Tarryall Reservoir is a 10-minute drive from the Roostahaus. Tarryall Reservoir does not allow swimming but does allow boats that don't create a wake (canoe, rowboat, stand up paddleboard, etc). There is a waterfall on the southeast end of the reservoir.

Guests have access to 13 miles of private land along Tarryall Creek that feeds into the reservoir, as well as three fishing ponds that are part of Lost Park Ranch.
