This is one of the reasons you need four-wheel drive in the winter -- much snow

Private Homes cabin description

Beautiful log cabin nestled in the woods with dramatic views of Continental Divide (four-wheel drive a must in the winter). Private deck with large hot tub and gas grill. You'll marvel at the warmth your family/group feels around the river stone fireplace. Fourteen people can crowd around the handcrafted wood dining room table playing games while the cooks listen in from the gourmet kitchen. Every inch of this cabin was crafted by top rated finish carpenters. You'll marvel at the unique touches throughout. Each bathroom has its own Kohler fixtures (like a two-person jetted tub and old fashioned claw foot one) creating a distinct environment. The most frequent comment we hear from guests, 'Your pictures don't do it justice.' All manner of mountain sports are nearby. We're walking distance from the Arapaho National Forest and just a short drive to Winter Park Ski Area. A perfect setting for romance (we've had many small weddings) or family reunions and group get-togethers.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  About the owner: We built our beautiful log cabin in 1995. We have enjoyed the wonderful wooded national forest surrounding our home and the amazing ski resort in Winter Park

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We build our log cabin in 1995. It is nestled near the Arapaho National Forest and close to the Winter Park/Mary Jane Ski Area. We love to ski and all the winter and summer sports that are abundant in our area.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  The summer is also a great time to be in the mountains of Colorado. In addition to the great hiking and mountain biking we are close to the Rocky Mountain National Park. We are also around 70 miles from downtown Denver which offers many city delights.
