About Shelli

My husband and I bought this home a few months before we got married and have enjoyed taking friends and family to it to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

We were living in Silt, which is about an hour from Powderhorn, but my husband was lucky enough to get into the Colorado School of Mines to study Petroleum Engineering. So we have relocated to Littleton while he attends school.

I am a stay at home mom to our son Parker and also work for the Colorado Broadcasters Association. I enjoy photography and coaching volleyball.

Shelli purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Shelli chose Mesa

We love the seclusion of our home, you can sit out on our deck and see the wild animals, sit in our hot tub at night and watch the shooting stars.

What makes this cabin unique

If you love to relax, you will love our large jetted tub and our steam shower.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We loved being able to escape town, and enjoy this house and our time planning together. A few more kitchen towels would have been helpful, but other than that it worked out really well. Plenty of space, great kitchen, enjoyed the hot tub!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great weekend. I will look into the kitchen towels and get some more. Thanks.

Perfect mountain get away!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 adults that stayed over a long weekend to enjoy the wonderful snowmobile trails up on the Mesa. Unfortunately, it was not the best snow-year for the Mesa or any of Colorado...but the accommodations were impeccable. The house was very clean, roomy and comfortable. The game room with Foosball and pool table was an added bonus along with the wonderful hot tub out on the deck for winding down in the evenings. The owner, Shelli, was a breeze to work with and was always prompt in responding to any questions we had. The house has super-easy access with plenty of parking.

We hope to stay here again when the snow conditions are much better. We might even consider a summer trip since the snowmobile trails are also ATV/dirt bike trails.

Shelli's home is definitely recommended for your next stay at Grand Mesa.

Great experience!

gorgeous log home

  • 5 of 5

This is NOT a cabin. it's a beautiful 3K square foot home in the mountains. Very close to the ski resort, but we came for the isolation. The house is roomy, comfortable and well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the house was clean.

Before we got there someone had turned up the heat so the house was warm and cosy, a thoughtful gesture.

The view of the stars is amazing, we watched shooting stars for hours, and you can see the milky way from the deck.

Highly recommended.

This is the second time we've stayed here and it was great both times and fit our needs.

  • 4 of 5

This home is a beautiful log home surrounded by trees in a wonderful location. It was perfect for our group of 8 people. It is spacious, clean, comfortable and close to the Crag Crest Trail which we were hiking on Grand Mesa. The owner has always been helpful if we had questions. We have stayed here on two different trips to Grand Mesa.
