My friends and I had a terrific experience at Isabel's cabin. Everything more than met our expectations, from the family spaces like the kitchen, living room and porch to the sleeping arrangements. It was very close to the Conejos River and a short distance from great hikes and scenery.
Isabel was very helpful in her communications and transparent in their hosting expectations which we appreciated. Thanks for everything Isabel!
Communication was excellent - responses within minutes. Cabin was in great condition and as described, an excellent place to stay if you really want to disconnect and relax!
Had a great stay at the cabin! Isabel helped make the stay even better. I would recommend anyone staying at this cozy cabin! The location was great, the cabin itself was great, just a great experience all the way around.
We had a beautiful stay in this absolutely gorgeous and very well maintained cabin... Had a lot of fun, the landscape is amazing and we were treated like kings... Wished we could have stayed longer... Definitely worth visiting and for a looong trip inside the wilderness of Colorado. Hopefully we'll come back again soon.
We enjoyed the cabin very much. It is spacious, clean, and comfortable. Our comfort was assured with ample kitchen supplies, toiletries, linens, and good books. The porch overlooking the pines and aspens offered quiet and relaxation. We also enjoyed the seclusion.
Our host was warm and friendly in all her communications. Thanks to her putting us in touch with someone in the know about local hiking, we had a cool hike up to scenic Red Lake.
Thanks for a restful and lovely stay.
The cabin in the woods is lovely. The mountain air was cool and the night was absolutely silent except for the sound of the river below. We cooked our own dinner and breakfast, but meals are available at the nearby Conejos Ranch.
My husband, son and I really enjoyed our stay at Isabel's cabin. We were looking for a couple of days of peace and quiet, which is exactly what we got. The cabin was really comfortable, and Isabel was a great host - very hospitable and extremely responsive.
About the Host, Isabel
I've lived in Colorado for 15 years and think that this is the best place to vacation.
My husband and I enjoy movies, reading, great food and good friends. I love to host people in my home and over the years we have had exchange students from Peru, South Korea, and Turkmenistan.
My travels have taken me to Chile, Argentina, Brazil, South Korea, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Mexico, Canada, and most of the United States.
My favorite city in the world is my birthplace NYC, second only to Barcelona. I grew up speaking Spanish in Argentina and have some fluency both written and spoken. I also speak and read some French.
My goal is to create a wonderful travel experience for others, and to help them feel comfortable and happy in my home. Let me know if there is anything I can do to make your experience wonderful.
