                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About: Ralph is a retired band director who loves the mountains, Alex is an interior decorator and author of the Home Decorating and Staging website.

                      Why Red Feather Lakes:
                      We weren't shopping for a cabin, we just wanted to have a look. What we found was pretty unbelievable. The realtor led us down a long, dark hallway guaranteed to extinguish your soul. At the end was a small room with orange shag carpet, a kitchen with no windows, an odd collection of deer heads and antlers, and 35 years of clutter. Just before turning around and walking out again, we pulled back the dusty drapes. And when we saw the view, our mouths dropped open. Acres of meadow grass, rock out-cropings, pine forest, and brilliant blue Colorado sky. Beyond that, regal and proud, lay the Mummy Range with not another home in sight. Before we knew it, we were signing papers. Then, we woke up. It was going to take a lot to turn this sad little cabin into a home we would spend a night in. After much deliberation, we decided to gut the entire structure. Cut more windows so we could see the views from every angle. Rewire, re-plumb, and build a new bath. We put down hardwood floors, dressed the kitchen with marble counters, added a wood stove in case the power went out, plopped down some cozy furniture, and let the views do the rest. We probably should have scraped it, but we didn't think of it. Now that the work is done, the fun part is seeing the reaction of visitors. On the outside it's a plain little cabin with a big secret. Because when you step through the door, you're blown away by the charm, comfort, luxurious touches and most of all, the view. Like sitting in a lookout from a 'Birds Nest.' We'd love to have you visit and tell us what you think. And if you're interested, you can see the Before and After pictures of the transformation at www.Home-Decorating-and-Staging.com.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      This little cabin is a place where time stands still. You quickly realize how restful it is to unplug from the demands of daily life. Renew and refresh your spirit, allow yourself the luxury of slowing down. Enjoy the beauty of nature, take a hike, stare at the clouds, do a little daydreaming, build a campfire and marvel at the stars, reconnect with someone you love. And if you must work, help yourself to the free WiFI.
