About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Nestled in the woods in beautiful Crystal Lakes, Wonderland is truly a mountain escape. This gorgeous 2005-built cabin is located about an hour north of Fort Collins in a beautiful aspen and pine forest in the mountains. It is a perfect for large gatherings and for romantic getaways alike. Wonderland is easily accessible year round. Each season provides its own charm. Winter activities, including ice skating, cross country skiing and tubing, are available at a nearby resort. Ice fishing on one of three lakes provides a sweet, succulent dinner for the stalwart.

The spring brings wildflowers, budding trees and hummingbirds, followed by the cool summer breezes and shimmering aspens. Brilliantly changing leaves and crisp mountain air provide the perfect autumn setting for strolls through the woods on paths next to flowing streams. Regardless of the time of year you visit, Wonderland’s inviting mountain setting and wonderful views will be sure to please.

There’s plenty to do inside this home, too. Satellite TV, DVD and video players, a library of classic and new-release movies, a pub table for playing cards or other games, a virtual library of books, games and puzzles, and ample seating areas for conversation. The spacious windows help to bring the outside in, and the plush window seat allows you to take it all in.

Three floors of living space provide room for everyone. The loft has hardwood floors and is open to the main floor. It features two twin beds, a full bed, and a play area that includes a TV/VCR and plenty of games. It's a great place for the kids to escape. The main floor features hardwood floors and is home to the open kitchen, large dining area, sitting room with rock fireplace, master bedroom (queen bed) with full bath, and a laundry and mud room.

Finally, the walkout lower floor has two bedrooms and a full bath, and the huge family/recreation area with leather furniture, big-screen television with satellite/DVD/VCR (with expansive movie collection), and a wonderful window seat that overlooks the aspens. There's also plenty of room for utilizing the library of games and books.

The mountain-based decor and the cabinetry in the house give it a warm, cozy feeling throughout. 24-foot cathedral ceilings on the main floor with exposed wooden beams add to the flavor. Enjoy your day outdoors, relax with your favorite beverage on the deck and prepare your meals on the grill for a delicious evening.

Before retiring, enjoy the myriad of stars and constellations in the mountain sky. When you climb into bed, the whispering of the breeze in the pine trees and the crackling of the fire in the floor-to-ceiling rock fireplace will lull you to sleep.

Wonderland is located 60 minutes north of Fort Collins in Crystal Lakes, at nearly 9,000 feet elevation. Crystal Lakes is a private community on thousands of acres of aspens and evergreens, picturesque meadows, wildflowers, streams, and stunning mountain vistas. Come to play or come to relax – both are easy to do here.

Wildlife abounds: moose, deer, coyotes, foxes, and other mountain creatures frequent the property. This is truly a special place, perfect for your entire family or just for a couple seeking a beautiful romantic weekend getaway.

The town of Red Feather Lakes is just 9.5 miles from Wonderland and it's surrounded by rock outcroppings and picturesque lakes. It's a fun little mountain town with a small library, post office, general stores, ice cream parlor, and art gallery. Also close by is Fox Acres Country Club, ranked among the top ten semi-private courses in the country, and numerous other outdoor activities.

We offer tour guides for day hikes, fishing, or to explore the history of the area. Upon request, we will shop prior to your arrival. A concierge is available to accommodate any requests you may have during your stay. For an additional charge, gourmet catering is available – call ahead and we’ll have your meals ready for your arrival, with deluxe linens and the wine of your choice.

This is a beautiful mountain home that is the perfect retreat for a busy family.

  • 5 of 5

This home is built and nestled into the woods beautifully! It is appointed nicely. And very comfortable for the whole family to spread out. The kids had a great time camping out in the loft with the three beds. They loved it, go figure :)

There is plenty to do just staying around the cabin, fishing, hiking and a nice camp fire in the fire pit.

But it is also a great location for planning day trips to horsebackriding, white water rafting, ATV tours which were within an hour of the cabin. Perfect location for fun for the whole family.

My kids enjoyed the cabin in the evenings watching tv and hanging out together. Much needed family time.

My only complaint was that the house was not well cleaned. Especially for a rental. I see one other review with the same point. I spoke with the home owner who was very gracious and explained that they pay a cleaning crew. And I said the crew should be ashamed and it is not his fault in that case. But I did spend several hours cleaning and vacuuming the carpet of cat hair with baking soda to remove the odor.

He assured me he would hire a new cleaning crew.

And for that I am still giving him five stars. Because;

A. He was kind and understanding and not the least rude to me about my complaint.

B. The house is fabulous (once cleaned) and I would not hesitate to stay there again next year.

C. We really enjoyed our vacation.

D. There is so much to do in that location. We couldn't have picked a better spot. I would return to the home again for vacation!

Truly a Wonderland!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very homey and well maintained. The owners stocked the kitchen with everything you could possibly need. We loved the fireplace and the amazing view from the deck! We would love to return and bring the grandchildren as the property is set up perfectly for family with horseshoes, a huge outside fire pit and plenty other room to roam... and it's pet friendly

Beautiful cabin but the housekeeping was lacking.

  • 3 of 5

The housekeepers did not dust or clean cobwebs. Our guests had allergic reactions to the furniture, blankets and carpet downstairs. The chairs in the kitchen were loose or broken from prior guests likely leaning back on them. Housekeeping should have repaired these. The owners were very gracious though.

Great cabin perfect for large family or a couple smaller families

  • 5 of 5

We went up during March and really enjoyed the fact that there was still snow on the property although red feather's had very little snow. We are actually able to Snowshoe on the trails in the Crystal Lakes area. There is plenty of room for everybody when you're playing games or just hanging out by the fire. We loved the fact that the owners allowed our dogs to come, it eliminated the fact of having to find someone to watch the dogs when we are on a little vacation. Brian the owner was very quick to get back to us. Absolutely would stay there again.

Great Location Near Red Feather Lakes

  • 4 of 5

Went up to "Wonderland" for a short spring break get away. Fabulous location with lots of hiking, snowshoeing etc around. A quick jaunt will take you to Beaver Meadows where there is recreation and a little bar/restaurant. Red Feather Lakes is not very far either. Cabin sleeps a good size group comfortably. Kitchen and dining area are great for gatherings. Deck is a marvelous place to hang out on a sunny day!

This was an amazing place to stay! The cabin was just BEAUTIFUL. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Lots of warm comfy beds. Beautifully decorated. We had a family girls weekend with 9 of us and we had a blast! We hiked, we went sledding, played games, and we sat around the huge kitchen table eating and laughing for hours! The fireplace was fantastic! Very clean and well maintained. Fully stocked with everything you would need. We hope to return next year. I have recommended this beautiful cabin to everyone!
