We had a great time. The first time driving up the mountain to find the cabin was daunting, but the written directions given were accurate and we were also able to utilize Google Maps as a double check. The second and third trips weren't a problem, even in the dead of night.

We didn't want for nothing. The cabin is fully stocked, the beds are comfy, and the outdoors areas are great for lounging and watching the wildlife walk and fly by.

We'd love to stay there again, if the opportunity arises.

Rocky Mountain Experience

We make several trips a year from Fl to visit our daughter, her husband and our wonderful grand daughter in Evergreen, Co. I have always wanted to stay in a cabin and not be cooped up in a hotel room while visiting them. We usually stay with them but this time we wanted to do something different. The Sunrise Lodge was every thing I was hoping for. It was rustic, comfortable, roomy and a lot of fun. Being from Fl and waking up to temps in the high 40's was a great change. We baby sat our grand daughter there at the Lodge and she loved running from room to room. I took her hiking there around the property and had a lot of fun coming across deer and a fox. To cap off our visit we awoke the last morning to find eight deer at our door step. We hope to go back out to Evergreen in Dec and look forward to staying in one of Micheal's homes again.

Great mountain retreat to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the cabin, and it was completely as described in the listing. Michael was very helpful when we were planning the stay and trying to figure out the best way to fit the family members into the bedrooms, and that was greatly appreciated. The cabin was plenty spacious for our group of 5 adults and 2 small children, and easily would have accommodated another person or 2 with no problems at all (with the additional 3rd bedroom). Also, Roger and his wife were very responsive to any questions we had, both about the cabin and about the area in general.

The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and even though they all open to the common living room / kitchen area there were no issues with activities in the kitchen disturbing people who were sleeping in an adjacent room. There are also helpful notes posted in the cabin to provide guidance in the functioning of some of the amenities (e.g. which way is hot on the shower, etc).

The directions to get there were very helpful, and the descriptions of the road are accurate, with some tight turns and steep inclines on the way. We were easily able to traverse these roads with a front-wheel-drive Camry and AWD Saturn Outlook with highway tires, even immediately after a rainfall (note this was in July, not wintertime, and I imagine more capability is needed in winter). It does take about 30 minutes to get from the cabin to Evergreen proper (grocery store, restaurants, etc), so plan accordingly if you think you'll need to get anything from town.

All in all it is a great place for anyone looking for a mountain getaway. We didn't get to explore any trails ourselves, but would love to on a future visit and it appears there are great options nearby. If we return to the Evergreen area we would definitely consider this location again.

Cabin is great, but you'd better have 4-wheel drive!

  • 4 of 5

Our family just stayed at this cabin the week before the 4th of July. It was overall a great stay with a few caveats. First off it was spacious and even with our group of seven (two parents and five adult children) did not feel cramped at all except when sharing the one bathroom. It is clean if not a little worn. The carpet is a little stained, and the furniture is the log cabin look but starting to look a little faded. You kind of get the feeling that this is your relatives home your borrowing and it has a well loved feel about it. The kitchen is spacious, well appointed, and easy to cook in. I brought a waffle iron from home only to discover there was one there already, there's also a coffee grinder, blender and other small appliances that a lot of rental homes don't provide, which was great for us because our family loves waffles, freshly ground coffee and margaritas!

We had an issue with one of the comforters not being clean but it was taken care of almost immediately along with one other issue we had when we arrived. This was very impressive as anyone can have an oversight but knowing it will be rectified right away, gave you peace of mind that you were being well taken care of. Overall for the price, which is way lower than most in the Evergreen area this is an amazing bargain, just don't expect gleaming new everything, get used to the idea of sharing a bathroom with everyone, and come prepared for white knuckling the last few turns and driveway! What you get in return is a cozy, comfy mountain home, and great base for seeing the Rockies!

Would I stay here again? Absolutely.

Now if you stay in Evergreen places to eat!

Beau Joe's- amazing "Colorado" pizza, I didn't know it was even a thing but it's delicious!

Creekside Winery and Cafe- only open for lunch and wine tasting till 5:00pm, but please go! they have amazing wines, an antipasta plate to die for, and you can sit outside literally by a creek, hence it's name! Took two bottles home and would have bought more if we could!

Bistro at Marshdale- this is the Trip Advisor #1 restaurant and for good reason. The food is wonderful, for a high end restaurant the prices aren't terrible and if you sit by a window you have a good chance of seeing elk wander by. We ate here the first night and loved it so much we came back on our last!

Owner's Response: We appreciate our guests time to write and submit this review ..... Some Clarifications; please, if you are a guest and decide to bring more people than the advertised capacity 5 guests note that our listing clearly describes Sunrise Lodge as having ONE BATHROOM. Just prior to our guest arriving the previous guest had an unfortunate accident and spilled cooking oil on a 1 square foot area of the carpet just off the kitchen area. We diligently cleaned the spill area but were not able to schedule professional cleaning prior to this guests arrival. There are no additional stains on the carpet at this home so the claim that the carpets are stained is very exaggerated. The comforter that was claimed to be soiled was dry cleaned before our guests arrival and was not soiled. Upon our inspection it had 3 small bleach stains on it which turned the red outer covering to off white on these small less than 1inch square areas. Also we do not consider our furniture which is mostly hand made Log to look a “little faded”. If you are searching for a property that is appointed in the latest Fashoinable mode our wilderness location Vacation homes are not for you. If you are a prospective guest to Sunrise Lodge or any of our other 8 Evergreen Colorado VRBO/Homeaway listed Vacation homes, call text or E mail any time if you have questions about these points of clarification or any other topics. Respectfully Michael - Owner

Cabin not prepared for emergencies and expect to clean

  • 3 of 5

Lovely cabin , although could use some attention inside and out. Wasn’t impressed that I had to fully clean the cabin upon check out. I expect to have trash and dishes and such done but sinks , counter and floors as well was a bit much especially didn’t love that the only cleaning was the prior tenants. Especially in the bath room also to have a power outage in remote locations can be expected but I also expect the property to be prepared for such. Such as wicked lanterns and candles But it want. And when I asked for lanterns I was told no and given tiny little used candles upon second request. It wasn’t such a fun night to cook by a flashlight and not even be able to play cards or socialize. So first night was a wash out. Could have been a better trip for sure

Owner's Response: VERY DIS-INGENUOUS GUEST Yes we had a power outage that started at 6 PM and lasted until 10 PM. And this statement “Expect to Clean” is false. We are Fully Prepared to mitigate the inconvenience of a temporary power outage. Note; This power outage was community wide and was totally out of our control. We immediately brought candles and flashlights to our guests and they thanked us and told us that it was not a problem. Obviously from the review they were not forthcoming with their dissatisfaction with the power outage and subtle innuendo that it was somehow our fault. So I conclude that their expression of face to face conversation and gratitude during the outage for our effort to mitigate this temporary regional condition was unfortunately not at all genuine. On the subject of cleaning; If you have shopped for Vacation home lodging you have found that most Owners require a non-refundable $75 to $150 Cleaning Fee. We are different. We take a 100% refundable Housekeeping deposit that is credited back to your credit card on chk out day when the residence is left the way you found it at check in. The cleaning is fully optional and is not required . This guest knew this when they confirmed their reservation by agreeing to the “Owners Policies” and they knew that Cleaning was not required but was optional. So we find it very dis-ingenuous at best, for them to complain about thier optional choice to perform the optional tasks of cleaning up behind themselves to receive a refund of thier Housekeeping deposit. Evan though they left the property in only partially cleaned, and poorly picked up condition we refunded their entire Housekeeping deposit. Contrary to the guests false statement that the House was cleaned only by the previous guests we fully detail and re deep clean our homes immediately upon guest check out and always touch up prior to all guest arrival on check-in days. I personally cleaned and prepped Sunrise Lodge thier chk in day. Again this was a dis-ingenuous and totally misleading allegation by this guest. Please read deep into our past guest reviews and you will find that our guests welcome our system of providing the option to have the Housekeeping Deposit returned. Last year we returned over 350, $100, Housekeeping deposits to our guest from our 8 Evergreen Colorado VRBO/Homeaway listed Vacation properties. For a further discussion of these topics of any other questions please call, text, or e mail us anytime Sincerely Michael - Owner
