Property description

Meek's Hill Cabin in Marble, Colorado is located at an altitude of 8000 feet in the midst of cool, towering pines, with views of 13,000 ft. peaks. Deer frequently wander through the property and bears have even been known to knock on the door. Feisty hummingbirds compete for their share of nectar from the feeder. Nature is literally on your doorstep! Since there is no light pollution in this small community, the starry skies will amaze you! In addition to this, you have all the comforts of a luxury condo.

Marble is a great central location for exploring the beautiful places of western Colorado. Within a two hour drive you can visit the orchards and vineyards of Paonia, the stunning Black Canyon of the Gunnison River, Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction, the Roaring Fork River valley and Aspen, Independence Pass and the Snowmass Wilderness. Best of all, our own Crystal River Valley.

If you are looking for the perfect place to experience nature at its best, Meek's Hill Cabin IS the perfect place!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Our love of Marble and the area around it goes back to the 1980's when we purchased our first property here. At the time, we believed this was the perfect getaway from our busy Denver lives. We have enjoyed our travels to Europe, South America, Mexico and throughout the U.S., but still appreciate Marble's beautiful and unique setting. Tom's career as an enrollment management consultant has taken him to colleges and universities across the country. Kay enjoyed a career as an elementary teacher. We now call Tucson 'home', but spend summers in Marble working in the gardens, playing with our two small dogs, reading and enjoying the great outdoors. We also enjoy hosting family gatherings at our Marble home.

Why the Owner Chose Marble:
After moving to Denver in the mid-1980's we bought a pop-up camper and set out with our young son to explore Colorado on weekend camping trips. Eventually, we discovered the Crystal River valley and Marble. We sold the camper, built our home and have never regretted it. The Crystal River valley is some of the the most beautiful, pristine country you will ever see. Fly-fishermen love the river. Hikers and horsemen love the trails. The back roads to Crystal City and Lead King Basin are a feast for the senses. Photographers can't get enough of the scenery, wildflowers and wildlife. We love it for the views, fresh air, great water and the occasional bear that wanders through the yard. Marble is special.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
One RV camping spot next to the cabin enables friends, parents or in-laws to share your time in Marble. $20.00 camping fee for 2 people per night. Each additional person over age 12 is $5.00. Check out for RV is also 11:00 am. Electric and water, no dump station.
