Lovely Mountain Cabin Retreat

Cabin - Entire home/apt · Forest Hill Rd, Evergreen, CO 80439, United States

The Space

Unique one room cabin nestled in the foothills above Denver. Surrounded by lilac trees and mountain roses in the summer and close to ski resorts in the winter. A single room with closet and composting toilet and cold water sink. The shower and full bath is located in the main house 15 steps away. The space has a beautiful curved wood ceiling with numerous special touches. It has a DVD player, an MP3 player and high speed wireless internet access. You have a view of a 14,000 foot peak out your windows and a comfortable shaded bench out your front door under a towering tree to watch the elk, deer and foxes wander by in the stream filled valley below.

Located within easy walking distance of downtown Evergreen and Evergreen Lake. We also provide a bike you are welcome to use. Evergreen is filled with galleries, specialty shops and restaurants and bars, many with live music. The lake has boats for rent in the summer and ice skating in the winter (named one of 10 most beautiful in the world by CNN!) and a beautiful path around it for a relaxing stroll anytime of the year. Fishing in the local streams and lake is always a treat for those inclined. An inexpensive but challenging public 18 hole golf course is just a short walk away and a world class private club less than 10 minute further. Evergreen is in the center of the foothills biking scene with incredible options in any direction. There are also 2 great recreation centers with pools, slides, weight and conditioning rooms. The beautiful public library is just a 10 minute walk over the hill,.

Denver is 35 minutes away in one direction while the mountains are at your doorstep in the other, all on uncrowded 4 lane highways. You have the option of a half hour head start for world class Colorado skiing, hiking or biking in the high Rockies in one direction or just a short 35 minute trip down the mountain to the museums, plays, restaurants and sporting events of the Denver/Boulder metro area.

You are welcome to join our family for (extra charge) an excellent gourmet dinner and/or breakfast while still having the luxury of your own separate space to come and go at your own schedule.

Why stay in a hotel when you can have a unique, lovely and quiet cabin of your very own?

  • This cozy garage-top cabin is in a great place up in the mountains. I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful views and wildlife. Something pretty foreign to me! It would have been nice if the "bathroom" had a door instead of a curtain but it wasn't a problem or anything. Justin was also very pleasant, responsive in communication, and great to chat with. I wish I had had more time to stay up there and enjoy the get-away.

  • A very comfortable & cozy stay. Justin is very knowledgeable about the area, easy to chat with and was happy to answer all our questions about Evergreen and many surrounding towns. Was a pleasure!

  • We had a wonderful stay in Evergreen. Justin greeted us, showed us the place and answered all of our questions about the town and local hiking spots. We were able to use the shower in the main house each morning without a problem. The room was warm, comfortable and quiet. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

  • Great stay in a great little town. I hope to visit again when I have more time and not just traveling through. This was my first AirBNB experience and it was a great one.

  • This was a unique experience in a beautiful area, just wish there was more access to the house and to the hosts.

  • My boyfriend and I contacted Justin last minute while on a road trip through Colorado. Justin was great and had the place ready before we even got to town. It was cute and quaint and in a perfect, scenic location. We couldn't have asked more!

  • Awesome location. Minutes from downtown Evergreen and hiking trails. The small cabin was well insulated and cozy. We loved staying there.

  • Justin's cabin is pretty much the perfect way to enjoy the Colorado mountains! It is cozy, private, and very quiet. Just a short walk to the trail around the lake and the main road in Evergreen with great cafes and lots of live music. Justin is very easy going and kind, as well as just super interesting to talk to. I stayed for a week so he and his family let me use the kitchen, and Justin was very accessible at the main house yet I also had total privacy and independence in the cabin. Perfect mix! I couldn't recommend this place more highly, I definitely hope to go back.

    March 2014
  • We enjoyed our night stay at Justin's Mountain Cabin Retreat. It is very nice cabin tucked away in the mountains above Evergreen and it is a beautiful cabin with nice cozy atmosphere. Justin is great, he gave some good restaurant tips and places to find good music in Evergreen. We'll be back for our next Evergreen get away.

About
I love the outdoors. I ski (grew up in Aspen, skied since I was 3), bike (both road and mountain), raft, whitewater kayak, climb, travel and enjoy cooking. I'm a Colorado native but have lived in Washington State, Alaska and NYC. After I graduated from college I decided I had never really lived in an urban setting and so decided to move to NYC. I lived in numerous neighborhoods of Manhattan and worked in the commercial production business on the crews making big budget television commercials. I decided, like many, that NYC was a great place to visit, but I didn't want to live there. I left for a brief time in Seattle before embarking on an extended trip around the world, with the longest stay in Nepal. I came back deeply in debt and took a job with a geophysical crew that traveled around the western US. I couldn't take the limited lifestyle (all work and no play) anymore and moved to Denver. I was offered, through an old friend, the position of overseeing the construction of a $15 million state-of-the-art video/film/audio recording facility that was paired with a voice research lab that was to form the seventh division of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Once constructed, I was offered and accepted the position of the Administrative Director of this facility, The Recording and Research Center. We made art film, television programs and recorded albums for diverse markets. I won a couple of regional Emmys, a bunch of film festival awards and a national ACE award for cable television. I met my wife, Helen Neal, while working on my mother's unsuccessful US senate campaign where she had started as a volunteer. Eventually, I decided to join my brother in starting a company to manufacture an invention of ours, the Sit'n'Stroll carseat stroller. A Sit'n'Stroll is a combination of a child's safety carseat with an integrated stroller in a single unit. It was expensive and complicated to start a safety related consumer product company that manufactured a very innovative and different product from the entrenched competition. We started small but grew very fast, averaging about 40% per year. I developed good relationships with some Taiwanese manufacturers. I left the company when my first son, Orion, was born and started another company to help small entrepreneurs find manufacturing options in China and Taiwan. I've since branched out a bit into making personal innovative items for individuals as well ((website hidden)). We now have 2 sons, Orion (15) and Haven (13), and we live in a house I built in Evergreen, in the foothills above Denver. My wife is the Chief of Staff for the Superintendent and the Board of Directors of the largest school district in Colorado and works too hard. My boys are intelligent and extremely charming. We have 3 cats and one dog, all very friendly.
