Leadville cabin description
If you dreamed of a cozy, romantic log cabin to enjoy for a few days, this is what you have been looking for. You will never forget the bright blue sky against Mount Elbert, Colorado's highest peak, the view of beaver ponds, all sitting by the wood stove, staring at the fire through it's glass door, in a nice leather chair.
A very comfortable, non-smoking two bedroom, one bath log cabin, Buckeye's Cabin is located at 10,300 feet in the midst of Colorado's Fourteener Region, minutes outside of Leadville, an old historical mining town, 20 minutes from Copper Mountain and 40 minutes from Vail and other world-class ski resorts.

While we only stayed 2 nights and the weather was very rainy (much needed, however) we had a great time in Leadville and the cabin was a great place to return to. It's obvious that the owners have put time, energy and love into Buckeye's Cabin. It's both charming and functional. It is extremely clean, the furniture is comfortable and the appliances through-out work well. Our cell phones didn't work there, but the available phone worked just fine. It allowed us to contact the Georgetown Loop RR to up-grade our reservation to 1st Class the morning of our ride, giving us a warm, enclosed car to enjoy the trip on a very wet day. The crocheted and tatted pieces through out the cabin made it feel very warm and welcoming. We look forward to comming back to see some of the things that had closed after Labor Day or that we just couldn't fit into our abbreviated visit. Thank you, Paul and Marie-Christine for sharing your cabin with us.

Ski Cooper Perfection
Ski Cooper Perfection
My family stayed here just after Christmas for 14 days. We skied Cooper, only 20 minutes away, and Sunlight, about 1:45 away. The cabin is perfect! Just what you would want and expect from a mountain get away. My two children, 4 & 10, loved it. And yes, "the stove of the future," 1960's style was fun to cook on. A smoky smell from the wood heater was charming. The satellite TV, the hot, hot water in the shower, the decor everything is just great. You are foolish to choose another place to say in or near Leadville.

Paul, You go above and beyond to provide a wonderful vacation spot, especially for these Floridians who were seeking a Ski Cooper retreat. We thank you, from the moment we arrived to the warmth of the pot belly stove and the charming cabin decorating/acommodations to your shoveling for us daily. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the skiing was beyond our expectations. The Dudley Family - St. Petersburg, FL (I need your address to ship back "Basket Case" book I'd borrowed from your library.)

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: We purchased this cozy, romantic cabin as our first home and could not stand to part with it when we moved after we had meticulously restored it. So we decided to go out on a limb and try to rent it short term, so that we could still come back to enjoy it. Luckily for us, everyone else seems to enjoy it as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Leadville:
Leadville is still an example of the old west. Open space, surrounded by 14 thousand foot peaks, an old western town, hundreds of miles of hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, biking trails, lakes, and streams. It doesn't get any better than this.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Close to world class skiing of Copper Mountain, Keystone, Vail, and Breckenridge, as well as a great smaller family area, among others, there are hiking trails, biking, back country skiing, snowmobile trips, train rides, museums and so much more... you have views of Mt. Elbert, Colorado's highest peak, as well as other 14 thousand foot peaks from the huge picture windows in the cabin. Live the old west...
