Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6) with hot tub

Our beautiful home is nestled in the beautiful national forests surrounding St. Mary’s Glacier in the St. Mary’s/Winterland neighborhood. The natural setting allows for all sorts of outdoor activities. In the winter you can enjoy backcountry skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or if you’re brave, you can give winter camping a try. When the snow melts in May, opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, 4x4 off-roading, backpacking and camping abound. The base of St. Mary's Glacier is one mile away. There are also two private lakes in the neighborhood that can be fished.

The nearby quaint town of Idaho Springs boasts unique shopping and is rich in frontier and mining history. Try your luck at panning for gold after taking in a tour at one of the local mines. Run the rapids of Clear Creek with one of the several rafting companies right in Idaho Springs. Afterwards, soak in the hot springs and baths of Indian Springs. Or you can just spend the day shopping and visiting some of the several museums around town that are interesting for the entire family. There are several restaurants in Idaho Springs as well. BeauJo’s world famous pizza is an excellent choice or you can try one (or two) of the microbrews at Tommyknocker’s.

After a long day of invigorating activity, shopping, or exploring, relax in our spacious two bedroom – two bath newly remodeled home. The living room has all of the comforts of home including a flat screen television with DirecTV and DVD player. If you’ve come to get away from the television, feel free to push the flat screen against the wall and forget it’s there. You can play some music, stretch out on the couches and enjoy the warmth of the wood-burning fireplace while reading your favorite book. The larger couch also folds out into a queen size bed. The beautifully updated kitchen has everything you’ll need to cook your favorite meals. Also downstairs is a full bathroom equipped with an amazingly relaxing rainforest shower head. Follow the aspen log staircase upstairs to the second bathroom and two bedrooms. The second bedroom sleeps two on a comfortable queen size bed and the master has a larger king size aspen log bed. From the master bedroom or the main entrance downstairs the large front deck can be accessed. Soak all your troubles away and enjoy the amazing scenery in the luxury hot tub situated on the deck.

So get away for a while and stay in our wonderful home. It won’t be a vacation you’ll soon forget.

Why Glenn and Austina Harper chose Front Range

This secluded cabin is our basecamp for both mountain activities and quiet downtime. There are six ski areas, historic mining towns, outlet stores and casinos just a short drive away. St. Mary's Glacier is a moderate one mile walk from the house and makes for a great day hike with incredible views. We end the day cooking dinner on the deck and relaxing in the hot tub under the trees. Our cabin has everything we need for a mountain getaway.

What makes this cabin unique

The 400 sq ft deck has a hot tub, picnic table and gas grill with space for folding chairs. There is an outdoor fire pit with plenty of firewood ready for use.

Beautiful- Relaxing- Clean- Perfect for Us

  • 4 of 5

The Harpers offer a very nice home in a breathtaking cabin near St. Mary's Glacier. There is much to do if you want to be Adventurous and very comfortable for a quiet and relaxing time. The house is well stocked with almost anything you could need. We appreciated the laundry, the kitchen, the grill and fire pit. Owners were accessible as needed and very pleasant to work with. Bedrooms were very nice in comfort and size and we had 6 people there comfortablely. This has nothing to do with the Cabin itself- but I'd like to mention if you have never been to Colorado the altitude of this location may be to high if you don't take time to acclimate yourself. We took two days before and it still wasn't enough at 10400 ft.

We enjoyed ourselves!

Quite and secluded

  • 4 of 5

Our stay here was wonderful. This cabin is secluded in the woods at 10,000 feet. As long as you get your groceries there is no reason to leave. There is hiking, fishing, campfires, and a hot tub. If you do find a need to go into town, it is only 10 or 20 minute drive. Idaho Springs is a quite town with shopping and lots of restaurants. Also, Mount Evans is a short drive on highway 103. You will see tons of beauty and animals.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This "cabin" has everything you need for a summer vacation getaway, with emphasis the getaway! From the time you leave the interstate and start up the aspen lined road relaxation begins. The hot tub awaits, the decor is warm and inviting and the views are awesome. All the amenities of home minus the wifi!!!!! So unplug, relax and explore Colorado. You will not be disappointed. Denver is just about an hour away so take in a Rockies ballgame or visit the Zoo. Idaho Springs is close enough to pick up groceries, gas and some great Pizza and locally brewed beer! Don't worry about spices, foil, storage bags etc...all you need is already there!

Our second stay did not disappoint and we will definitely return. Glenn is a gracious host and easy to contact if you have any questions.
