Red Feather Lakes cabin description

Bear Dance lodge is a gorgeous custom log home with the luxury details throughout. The lodge sits on a private small stocked lake that is part of the Crystal Lakes community just a 10 minute drive to the town of Red Feather Lakes. The lodge sits on a private lot of 6 acres with very few homes in the surrounding area. The landscape is frequented by Deer, Beaver, and Moose. If you are a bird lover, you will love watching the hummingbirds play!

Soak in our private hot tub and watch the meteor showers in the summer months! We have counted up to 50 shooting stars and hour!

The location of the lodge is 1 hour Northwest of Fort Collins, Colorado in the Red Feather Lakes and Crystal Lakes communities. It is a 2 hour drive from Denver International Airport. Surrounded by the snow-capped Mummy Mountain Range, this area is blessed with beautiful rock outcroppings, Aspen and Evergreens. Red Feather lakes is roughly an hour away from Estes Park and Rocky Mountain national park.

The town of Red Feather Lakes is just 3.5 miles from Bear Dance Lodge and it's surrounded by Rock outcroppings and picturesque lakes. It's a cute Mayberrry RFD-type of town with a bingo hall, library, Post office, hardware store, real estate offices, ice cream shop, and two trading posts where you can buy groceries, moccasins & homemade fudge. There is an art and coffee shop that offers wireless internet. There are half dozen restaurants and entertainment such as Saturday Night Karaoke. There is a small liquor store there as well.

The Crystal Lakes subdivision is 4800 Acres big with 5 stocked lakes and rivers including the 500 acre lake called Crystal Lake. There is a small additional fee paid tot he community association to fish any of these lakes, but a Colorado Fishing permit is not required. You can rent a canoe or rowboat from the large lake also.

The area is surrounded by Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest where hunting is allowed certain times of the year. ATV riding is also a popular recreational activity on designated trails with the National Forests.

There are numerous outdoor activities nearby including fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, river rafting, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, canoeing, or bird watching.

Bear Dance lodge is equipped with a Brunswick pool table and tons of board game, Nintendo, videos and DVDs to entertain the troops. We have a large fire pit below the house near the lake to enjoy some campfire bonding also. Bring your s'more fixings and a guitar and you are all set! Sorry there is no satellite or cable TV to encourage 'family bonding time'.

The lodge features a gourmet kitchen with slab granite and all the utensils and pots and pans, bread maker, and a Kitchen-aid mixer. You should have everything you need to make a batch of homemade cookies to a big home style turkey dinner or a big barbecue dinner. . The lodge features a floor to ceiling stone wood-burning fireplace to snuggle by.

There are three bedrooms plus a loft and 3.5 baths. There are two master bedrooms each with an in-suite bathroom (one with a jacuzzi tub) . The upper level master has a pillow-top king bed and the lower level master has a pillow-top queen bed. The 3rd bedroom has a log Captain's bunk which has a full on the bottom and a twin on top. The loft has a full sized futon couch, a desk and another TV with DVD player.

We are a non-smoking property and because of problems in the past, we are no longer allowing pets.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees and Rental Conditions:

  • Property Damage Protection $49
  • Tax Rate 10.5%

Notes:

We used to accept dogs with a $100 fee, but even though the owners promised to kennel them and that they were perfect dogs, we have had broken screens, scratches on interior doors and YES, even poop left inside on a rug.....so unless please don't ask unless your dog is a service dog. It's a huge headache to get good service people to repair things in Red Feather, so we would rather not have pets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am the mother of two sons and a Therapy Dog named Roxy who is a wicked smart Border Collie. I love to get up to our cabin in Red Feather Lakes to relax, take hikes, soak in the hot tub, watch the moose and the Hummingbirds. We have some great family bonding time over a game of pool, board game, BBQ s and of course, around the fire-pit making S'mores.

Why the Owner Chose Red Feather Lakes:
As a travel agent for over a decade, I have represented many properties throughout Colorado including Aspen, Beaver Creek, Vail, Breckenridge, etc and as much as I love the winter sports, I dread driving back on I-70 in bumper-to-bumper traffic. We chose Red Feather Lakes area because it's not a crowded touristy destination, but rather a peaceful, gorgeous place in Colorado that is how it 'used to be' in the resort towns. We love the fact that this area welcomes just as many moose and deer as it does people.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We are located less than an hour from great River Rafting on the Poudre River. This area attracts wildlife and includes lot of outdoor pursuits such as star-gazing, Hiking, Mountain biking, ATVing, Fishing, horseback riding, cross country skiing and great tubing.
