About Randy Skalski
We hope that you have a wonderful stay at our log cabin. We lived in Colorado for more than 20 years and after a careful search, purchased this cabin for our family’s use during frequent trips to Colorado and enjoy sharing it with our guests. Thank-you for being our guest and we hope you will return.
Randy Skalski purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Randy Skalski chose Idaho Springs
We love the setting of our cabin, nestled in a canyon, with a roaring creek, surrounded by National Forest, and without another home in sight. We also like the convenient location near the lively and vibrant City of Denver, with every available cultural activity and amenity; the quaint and historic town of Idaho Springs; and all the splendid sights and activities in the Rocky Mountains.
What makes this Cabin unique
The sights and sounds of the creek are truly magical. On a more practical note, the cabin is extremely easy to find and easy to get to anytime of year on paved roads that are snow-plowed regularly. Winter access is about as good as it gets for the mountains in Colorado.

Perfect getaway in a wonderful cabin.
The cabin is beautiful with amazing decor that reflects the history of the area. Secluded yet close to activities and culture. We really enjoy fires by Chicago Creek on the patio and the wildlife we saw. Would definitely like to return to this property.
Awesome cabin great location!
For my first trip to The beautiful state of Co my stay couldn’t have been better! Cabin was super very nice and I loved the river right in front of the house. Great location being so close to the mountains and about 40 minutes from Denver. Idaho Springs is also an awesome little town! I will be back and use this cabin again!
This is our second time to the property. We love it and will be back it’s such a beautiful home I recommend it to everyone
A great cabin!
All the comforts of home in a beautiful setting! We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you for allowing visitors to stay in your lovely cabin. We will defiantly be back!!
My idea of a mountain cabin. Very soothing sound of rushing water.
I will re-book this place again
We absolutely loved our stay
This is the second time we have stayed and it was great. House is amazing and they have everything you need to have a great vacation! Randall is very easy to deal with. We will be again next year!
