To the south are the towns of Black Hawk and Central City, known for casinos and the Central City Opera. The progressive town of Boulder is only a 40 minute drive to the east where you can visit the famous Peal Street Mall and the hand-painted Dushanbe Tea House. Finally, we are only 75 minutes from Denver International Airport.

This cozy, romantic cabin for two or a close-knit family of four lies at 9,000 ft in elevation and boasts amazing views of the Continental Divide, ample summer wildflowers, a gourmet kitchen, full bath, and wood and propane heat. The handcrafted interior of the cabin contains hardwood and travertine floors, natural aspen trim and railings, knotty cherry kitchen cabinets, stone countertops, and porcelain tile. Finally, the Chalet is completely off-grid and has full solar electricity. We also have high speed wireless internet and satellite TV.

Mountain View Chalet is located on 20 acres of private land and surrounded by national forest.

You can enjoy beautiful walks in the pine forest right from the door step, go fishing at the privately owned Snowline Lake (has really big trout!), or take a short drive to the James Peak and Indian Peaks Wilderness Areas to hike to alpine tundra, glacier fed lakes, and beautiful waterfalls. In winter, enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing right from the door or drive 15 minutes to Eldora Ski Resort for downhill skiing, Nordic skiing and snowboarding . The Chalet is a perfect place to relax in the peaceful solitude of the Rocky Mountains, escape the summer heat, or enjoy the winter snows.

Beautiful Private Cabin with Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful little cabin has everything you need and nothing that you don't. It's amazing that an off-grid, secluded gem can have all the modern touches. The woodwork is gorgeous, it's obvious the owner's take a lot of pride in this place. The power supply doesn't allow a microwave or dishwasher but you don't miss them at all. It's location is very private, the only thing you see out of any of the windows is forest and mountains. This was our second stay and just like the first time, everything was clean and ready to go.

Definitely going back. Awesome place with amazing views, tucked away from the maddening crowds, traffic, and the outside world yet only five minutes from Rollinsville. A must stay if you love being away from everything!

Magical cabin in the Rockies

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is even more perfect than described. It is a handcrafted cabin built with fine attention to every detail. The views and location were truly breathtaking. Rea was very responsive and easy to make arrangements with. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a private mountain retreat. I hope to return someday!

Amazing, Inspiring, peaceful & Refreshing

  • 5 of 5

Located in the Colorado mountains at 9000 feet, to get to this cabin you have to leave the main road & take a road through the national forest to get to the property. The cabin set is on 20 acres on top of a mountain. It was very private, peaceful & relaxing. The air is filled with the fresh crisp smells of the mountains & pines. From the Cabin you can see surrounding mountains, pines, aspens, rock formations, & in the distance the continental divide. It was wonderful to watch the different storms come in over the divide. During one storm there was a rainbow below us in the distance that lasted for hours. We would sit in lawn chairs or the lay in the hammock & take in the beauty & sounds of the forest(No city noises). Night viewing of stars was breathtaking. The low humidity & higher altitude plus no city lights make for wonderful star gazing. We set out many a night watching the stars. The early morning hours were great for stargazing & then watching the sun come up & hit the continental divide. Sunset was beautiful with full colors on & around the mountains. We really enjoyed hiking through the forest & enjoying the scenery. The soil was soft & spongy similar to a padded carpet so hiking around was easy on the feet & legs. There is a private lake just a mile away that we were allowed to fish. Really big rainbow trout 16-20" and lots of them. We chose to catch & release the ones we caught. A short drive away there are a couple of towns with a market, restaurants & lots of shopping. The people we met were friendly & helpful. The cabin was awesome. Very comfortable & with most of the modern conveniences. (No dishwasher or washer/dryer) It was all solar powered & had internet & satellite TV service so we could stay connected with home. We even found a spot on the property where our Verizon cell service worked. The Cabin was beautiful. The ladder & trim were crafted from trees taken from the property as well as some of the stonework. One of the owners is a stone mason by trade & has done elaborate stonework both inside & outside the cabin. You can see the craftsmanship & heart that went into building this amazing cabin. They have done an immense amount of work throughout the property. We really can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this oasis in the mountains. Iowa is at an elevation of 955'-0, so there was some adjustment time to the 9000-foot elevation. Drink lots of water to help you adjust. If you want to get away this is the place for you!
