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 Front Range

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.

Wonderful Stay. Words can't hardly describe it, but if I had to use 1...Majestic!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay! The property owner was super easy to work with. We enjoyed indoor & outdoor fires every night. This place is worth the stay 20 times over! The creek & trails are beautiful. Good eating in town (The Buffalo & Beau Jo's are great, skip El Rancho) snowboarding, scenic drives, so much to list, all close by. We had 4 adults this time, but we will definitely be coming back & bringing our children. Thank you so much for opening up this lovely cabin 4 rental! I highly recommend this spot for any Colorado trips young or old, so much fun, so much to do, so beautiful & so relaxing!! 😊�

adorable cabin

  • 5 of 5

We came for a mini break and it was perfect. We watched rain and storms from the covered front porch, hiked the hills behind the cabin, stared at the creek, and enjoyed the cozy wood stove at night. We didn't leave for two days. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Amazing Clear Creek Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin and great location with many activities to do very close by. Loved the hiking trail behind the cabin. Went white water rafting, horseback riding, rock climbing and to Mt. Evans. Would definitely come back again.
