We love Colorado and the seclusion of small mountain towns. We feel so lucky as the views always take our breath away! I am a stay at home mom who manages properties for her in-laws with my husband. Some of our favorite travel spots are St. Maartin and Cancun. We want to share this Colorado cabin experience with guests and recommend places to eat, ski, snowboard, hike, as well as other local activities. Thank you for checking us out! purchased this cabin in 2007

Why chose South Central

The home was purchased primarily because of the location, the view and also due to the fact that the adjacent lot was purchased with it.

What makes this cabin unique

A rustic cabin with modern touches offers a sense of solitude, privacy & pure mountain beauty.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cozy, comfortable cabin with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 grown ups, one 2 yr old, one dog) stayed at this cabin for 3 nights in March for a brief spring break trip. The cabin had everything we needed, a very comfortable and spacious layout, and the most spectacular views! The hot tub was amazing as well. Great location, easy to get into Leadville or out to Ski Cooper (or further) but still felt very cozy and secluded. Owners were warm and easy to communicate with. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to go back soon!

Perfect secluded get-a-way with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

Prior to arriving we had a few questions about the place and amenities and the owners were quick and courteous to respond. The property was easy to find with the provided maps and everything was exactly as described. The Hot tub was easy to access and set to a perfect 104 degrees. There was plenty of wood for the fireplace and the place was very clean. Plenty of pots, pans, utensils and cooking gadgets to prepare a four star meal. We loved our stay and plan on returning with the kids next time.

Perfect quiet getaway for small groups of friends or a family.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a good friend's 30th birthday and it was just the ticket. The location and view are spectacular and the cabin was clean and well stocked. Being late October, we really enjoyed the warmth of the wood stove and the hot tub. While adults stayed in the hidden loft on this trip, it would be perfect for children as well. It was nice to stay in a place where everything worked and all of the basic amenities were covered. Highly recommended.

Great Views and So Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was clean and inviting and is in a beautiful setting. The main room has one wall of windows and is a perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of Colorado. The loft upstairs is accessible with pull-down stairs which makes it difficult for a suitcase, but my daughter thought it was worth it. The bedrooms are off of a second living area downstairs and are private and quiet. The roads up to the cabin are not paved, but are well graded. It was ideal for our family of four, but could have easily accommodated more. The owners were flexible and easy to work with -- thanks for everything!
