The perfect getaway spot for 4 guys from the flatlands!
Mike Carter (property manager) was more than gracious with anything we needed or wanted to know about the area.
Kelly what a surprise to see you after 20 years when I managed your families rental house just down the road. Please say hello to your mom and sister Erin and we do hope you and your adventurous friends will visit again when you can stay longer and explore more off road locations in that shiney Red Jeep
The best part was how much our dog loved it.

Charming, cozy cabin delivers white Christmas with amazing views!
This cabin is perfect for 2-3 guests. The cabin is not large but provides everything you need for a relaxing mountain retreat. We brought our 2 little pups and our son visited from Denver and we fit comfortably. The fireplace coupled with the amazing views created a winter wonderland for us to celebrate the magic of Christmas. Michael responded very quickly to a couple of questions we had upon arriving. The cabin is located at the top of the mountain and definitely requires 4 wheel drive, without it we wouldn’t have made it. There is no wi-fi and limited cell reception, but we were on vacation and it’s nice to unplug and enjoy our time. Evergreen is an adorable little town with plenty of amenities, but it is a nearly 25 minute drive to the grocery store so plan in advance to limit your trips back and forth. Our experience was fantastic from the time of our online booking to our last minute at the cabin. Our cleaning deposit was refunded very quickly after our departure. Quite a bit is expected of you to receive your deposit refund but you have the option of forgoing the refund and leaving the cleaning to them. Looking forward to our next trip to evergreen.
We thank our valued guests for taking the time to submit this review and we are always gratified when our guests find the experience they are looking for.
A couple of clarifications;
1. Cell Service; ATT & Verizon are excellent. T Mobile, Sprint and Straight Talk Wireless are very spotty everywhere in the Colorado Rockies.
2. Internet Service; Our Listing discloses that there is not Internet Service at the Wilderness Cottage, and that guests can come to our office 400 feet away to access WiFi. We also offer 5 other VRBO/Homeaway listed Evergreen Colorado Vacation Cabins and Cottages that have Internet service.
3. Contrary to our guest statement that you absolutely need a 4 Wheel drive to access the Wilderness Cottage, the only time that you need a 4 Wheel drive is during winter when the roads are snow packed. All other times of year your
2/front Wheel drive vehicle will be just. fine. If you are a prospective traveler looking for a quiet "Off the Beaten Path" Evergreen Colorado Wilderness Setting Lodging Location we encourage you to consider the "Wilderness Cottage"
Call Text or Email anytime if we can be of assistance while you plan your vacation getaway. Respectfully Micheal - Your Evergreen Colorado Lodging Host
