About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)


This cabin sits at the base of Round Top Mountain on the Alpine Loop with wonderful views. Enjoy the sunny south-facing covered porch or hike up the ridge for even more panoramic views. This property is almost two acres, minutes from town and provides remote mountain privacy. There is a home over the ridge but not visible from the property. The property borders Bureau of Land Management Public land to the north and west with abundant wildlife. When your day is done, snuggle up on the Natuzzi Italian leather loveseat in this romantic getaway for a couple. Dim the red chandelette and dine at the table with views of Round Top Mountain. The living room and bedroom have vaulted ceilings with fans and lights that dim. Want to bring the kids? The sleeping loft has a FOUR foot high ceiling with room for the kids or young at heart on two twin beds. There is plenty of parking space. If you are traveling with family or friends with an RV, we have space for them too.

Just steps from the cabin's covered porch is the rock bordered picnic area nestled in the aspens. There is an 8 foot picnic table and charcoal grill for your use. Also enjoy sitting around firepit / stove under the stars with beautiful evening views above cabin.

The kitchen has all the dishes and cooking utensils needed to cook a great dinner. We also provide spices, foil, paper towels, coffee filters, dish washing liquid, and too much more to list.

For those familiar with Lake City, to reach the property, travel south (towards Lake San Cristobal and Slumgullion Pass) 1/2 mile out of Lake City. You enter the property on a private drive on your right before you reach ski hill and the Round Top Mountain Road.

The property is located just off Hwy 149.

We are taking reservations for 2015. There are not many, if any, rental opportunities this close to town at this price point with privacy and room to roam. Book now for the time you desire.

About Steve McEwan

My wife and I have been vacationing with our family in the Lake City area since 1997. We have always wanted to own mountain property and have been looking for "the perfect spot" for years. In 2011 we found it. We hope to someday add a couple more cabins on this property and retire in the Lake City area. Our desire is to provide our guests with a relaxing carefree vacation.

Steve McEwan purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Steve McEwan chose Southwest

This property offers guests a secluded mountain location while being about 1/2 mile from town. The cabin is situated on almost two acres of private land which borders BLM public land to the north and west.

What makes this cabin unique

This property is in an idyllic private setting, clean, compact but complete and competitively priced. There is ample room to have a gathering of family and friends who have RVs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Silver Coin Cabin has been such a treat. It's beautiful, clean, and quiet with everything just like home. I wish we could stay longer. The owners have put so much into the cabin and it shows. Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely, small cabin for 3 nights in September. It was truly perfect for our need. It was private, with abundant wild life to observe and beautiful mountains surrounding us. It is just a short drive into Lake. City. The cabin was spotless with every amenity provided. Communication and access was seamless. There is some roadway noise during the day, but at night peaceful. The picnic and separate fire pit area was a bonus.I highly recommend this property and it's owners.

Great location for hiking

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and comfortable and was supplied with all we needed for cooking meals "at home". We chose this spot because of the accessibility to the Silver Creek-Grizzly Gulch trail head and it was a nice bonus to have such great accommodations. Although we didn't walk to town, it was very convenient to drive in for groceries and to the bakery.

My wife and I spent 9 WONDERFUL nights in this tremendous cabin. We could not have hoped for a more enjoyable stay in this exceptional cabin. It was so well furnished and provided all the essentials we could have possibly needed or wanted. We enjoyed the privacy of the beautiful tract it is on - but also loved having quick access to downtown Lake City when we wanted to head in for groceries or dining. Most definitely a 5-Star stay!!!

Great property, secluded, just outside of a town.

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd time at Silver Coin. A great value for Colorado property. We enjoy the Alpine loop, which is nearby. Very clean and well stocked property. Close to town, but has lots of privacy. We'll be back.
