About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
A short drive from Colorado Springs to Woodland Park (which has most services and amenities), then 20 minutes north on scenic Highway 67 brings you to Westcreek: A pretty valley that was surrounded by, but survived the notorious Hayman Fire of 2002, with stands of grand ponderosas, a meandering stream that flows into a quiet lake, and songbirds and wildlife in abundance. This is a Colorado mountain retreat that is close and accessible to city amenities but rural in character and charm. It's a 1930's historic true log structure, with knotty pine paneling and woodwork throughout, completely renovated and made new, including new kitchen, lower garden level, plumbing, wiring, heat system and windows. ALSO PROVIDED: Satellite TV, broadband internet, long distance telephone (cell phones don't work down in the valley)
The porch is one of the grandest around, built in the rustic log tradition, a great place to relax and listen to the rain on the roof. Main level, including living/dining, kitchen, bedroom and bath is original. 2 more bedrooms, family room with gas stove, and bath with shower finish out the walk out lower level. It's an amazing place, come stay awhile!

About the owner: I'm a third generation native of Denver. I've always loved spending time in Colorado's mountains. Skiing, hiking, mountain biking....all the predictable and wonderful activities you'd expect. The best memories of all, however, date back to late 1960's / early 1970's family trips to some campy cabins along a stream in Estes Park. These were real log cabins, complete with original pine beams, knotty pine paneling, and pleasantly squeaky wood floors. They had big patios, bigger views, plenty of wild life and always the sound of a distant stream in the background. Those memories faded over time as my wife and I raised our kids, built careers and did all that adult stuff. A summer, 2013 visit to the campy cabins of beautiful Jenny Lake Lodge in Teton National Park, right outside of Jackson, WY, brought back all of those memories. As we drove back to Denver, the decision had been made. It was just a matter of what, when and where. I was going buy a cabin and create the same sense of serenity I had experienced in Estes Park and at Jenny Lake Lodge.
Why the Owner Chose Sedalia, CO, USA:
After countless listings, two realtors and what felt like thousands of miles on my car, I came across Echo Creek; a real log cabin complete with original pine beams, knotty pine paneling, and pleasantly squeaky wood floors. It had a big patio, a bigger view, plenty of wildlife and the sound of a distant stream in the background. As the Nelson's beautiful chapter on Echo Creek Cabin came to a close, mine began. Dreams really can come true!
