About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Come visit The Cabin at Trout Creek, our newly constructed cabin which opened April, 2010. Set on 3 1/2 acres with over a million acres of San Isabel National Forest out the front door, this 3000 ft2 cabin offers its guests peace and seclusion yet easy access to nearly unlimited outdoor activities only minutes away. With views in every direction, the cabin has been designed to match the beauty of the creation that surrounds it.

The decor is rustic, yet beautiful, with a distinct mountain feel. Down to the smallest detail, much thought has been given to create an ideal setting for a family vacation or small group getaway. From luxurious towels to fun, built in bunk beds the kids will love, you will find the cabin has everything you need and so much more. Enjoy a peaceful cup of coffee on our 600 ft2 deck or use one of the bikes on the property to explore the nearby biking trails. After a day of activity, come back and enjoy a board game in front of the stone gas fireplace, read a book in the loft, or choose to watch a HD movie from our huge selection of DVDs. The cabin is intentionally designed to be big enough to vacation with Grandma and Grandpa or another family, yet not too big if you are a small family on a summer getaway.

If you want to get out and explore the area, you will find there are more things to do than you have time for! Buena Vista is home to the Arkansas River, providing world-class whitewater rafting and fly fishing. It also hosts the largest concentration of 14,000+ foot mountains in Colorado, offering spectacular scenery and endless outdoor activity. The lively town of Buena Vista is only 15 minutes away and offers many activities, restaurants, and shops.

Amazing Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Judy have done a wonderful job of creating the perfect Colorado vacation home nestled in a breathtaking part of the country. We loved coming back to the cabin after hiking and exploring the scenery and nearby towns. We wanted for nothing, everything you need for an enjoyable and comfortable stay is provided. The kitchen is wonderful for cooking meals and visiting after a long day outdoors. The furniture and decor throughout the home is comfortable, inviting and inspirational. We had a great family Christmas and hope to be back very soon!

Thanks for sharing this truly amazing home! (the views are spectacular!)

Great house, very spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house for a long weekend. It's located in a beautiful area of Colorado, provided us with ample space, and was close enough to downtown Buena Vista to allow us to take advantage of all the area has to offer. We would definitely stay again!

Thank you for all that you did to make our stay so special! The Cabin was so well appointed and stocked with everything we needed!

About Judy Halmrast

Although Minnesota is our first home, we have found that our hearts have been drawn to the openness and beauty of the Colorado Rockies over the years. To build and own a cabin in one of the most beautiful places on earth truly is a blessing--a blessing we want to share with others, as well. So much of who we are--our personalities, values, priorities--are reflected in this cabin. Our goal has been to create a place that not only provides peace and relaxation, but that inspires its guests to connect with family and friends, with God and His creation.

Judy Halmrast purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Judy Halmrast chose Buena Vista

The area in and around Buena Vista is amazing--the scenery is spectacular and the activities available are virtually unlimited. Our cabin is only 15 minutes from town which allows easy access to restaurants and shopping, yet offers us the quiet and beauty of a mountain getaway that is so important to us.

What makes this cabin unique

As we built this cabin, we have been very intentional about everything from the location of the land purchased to the smallest detail in decorating each room. For both us and our guests we want the cabin to be a place that has everything we need to either tuck in for a few days without driving anywhere or be a homebase for an activity filled vacation. Rest, beauty, refreshment--that's what we find at the cabin. We hope that you will to.
