About the property

3 Bed, 2 Bath, Double Wraparound Decks, Gorgeous Mountain Views, 30 Min To Breck

Nestled in a forest of pine trees, at the base of several majestic mountain peaks, this gorgeous mountain home provides the perfect setting to relax and rejuvenate your mind and body as you watch moose and elk from the expansive two-tiered decks. All of your activities are nearby with skiing (Breckenridge), whitewater rafting, hot springs, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding all within an hour or less! This home serves as the perfect jumping off point for all of your adventures!


If you are looking for mountain living at its finest, this home is for you. Stretch out on top-grain leather sofas in front of a roaring wood burning stove, after a day of exploring the great outdoors. Experience the rustic elegance of custom log furniture and drift off to sleep on luxurious memory foam mattresses in both master bedrooms. Fire up the grill as you watch the sun set over 14,000 foot mountains or prepare a feast in the large, fully equipped kitchen. After supper, enjoy cool summer nights gathered around the fire pit roasting marshmallows, admiring the vast, star-filled sky, and breathing in the clean mountain air.

Indoors, enjoy satellite TV and our collection of movies on either of the large flat screen TVs, play a rousing game of ping pong, or spend some quality time on a family game night while you listen to music over the included Wi-Fi.

About Liz & Jeremy Schneider

Liz is a Kansas girl who met and married her rugged husband over a decade ago. We live in Littleton, Colorado with our three wonderful kiddos.

Liz & Jeremy Schneider purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Liz & Jeremy Schneider chose Valley of the Sun

We both have a love of the great outdoors and wanted a place where our kids could experience everything the mountains have to offer. Skiing, hiking, watching wildlife, etc., this home is perfect for experiencing it all! Watching our kid's eyes light up when a moose walks by the deck or a fox darts between the trees is the fulfillment of a dream.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with the floor to ceiling windows, double wraparound decks, and majestic mountain views. With the great indoor and outdoor space, we feel like we found the perfect mountain escape, regardless of the season.

You’ll enjoy your stay - exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Utah to Colorado and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Moose-Elk Lodge. Liz, the owner, is responsive and kind. The reservation process was simple. We chose this area to spend time with our adult children for Thanksgiving. The views are breathtaking, the area is quite and the home is spotless and inviting. It is fully equipped to cook any dinner you want. We cooked a full thanksgiving dinner. Another evening we BBQ on the deck while enjoying the fresh air and the spectacular views. Breckenridge and Keystone ski resort is within a reasonable driving distance. The only regret is we didn’t stay longer. It was hard for us to leave. We highly recommend staying at this property you will love it! Thank you Liz for making our stay so enjoyable.
