Meek's Hill Cabin in Marble, Colorado is located at an altitude of 8000 feet in the midst of cool, towering pines, with views of 13,000 ft. peaks. Deer frequently wander through the property and bears have even been known to knock on the door. Feisty hummingbirds compete for their share of nectar from the feeder. Nature is literally on your doorstep! Since there is no light pollution in this small community, the starry skies will amaze you! In addition to this, you have all the comforts of a luxury condo. Our cabin is easily accessible but away from trains, planes and highways. Four-wheel drive is not necessary.

Marble, a very small community, is a great central location for exploring the beautiful places of western Colorado. Within a two hour drive you can visit the orchards and vineyards of Paonia, the stunning Black Canyon of the Gunnison River, Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction, the Roaring Fork River valley and Aspen, Independence Pass and the Snowmass Wilderness. Best of all, our own Crystal River Valley.

If you are looking for the perfect place to experience nature at its best, Meek's Hill Cabin IS the perfect place! Please call 520-575-0128 for further information and accurate cost information. Sorry, we cannot accommodate dirt bikes or ATV's. We are closed for the hunting season.

About Kay Williams

Our love of Marble and the area around it goes back to the 1980's when we purchased our first property here. At the time, we believed this was the perfect getaway from our busy Denver lives. We have enjoyed our travels to Europe, South America, Mexico and throughout the U.S., but still appreciate Marble's beautiful and unique setting. Tom's career as an enrollment management consultant has taken him to colleges and universities across the country. Kay enjoyed a career as an elementary teacher. We now call Tucson 'home', but spend summers in Marble working in the gardens, playing with our two small dogs, reading and enjoying the great outdoors. We also enjoy hosting family gatherings at our Marble home.

Kay Williams purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Kay Williams chose Northwest

After moving to Denver in the mid-1980's we bought a pop-up camper and set out with our young son to explore Colorado on weekend camping trips. Eventually, we discovered the Crystal River valley and Marble. We sold the camper, built our home and have never regretted it. The Crystal River valley is some of the the most beautiful, pristine country you will ever see. Fly-fishermen love the river. Hikers and horsemen love the trails. The back roads to Crystal City and Lead King Basin are a feast for the senses. Photographers can't get enough of the scenery, wildflowers and wildlife. We love it for the views, fresh air, great water and the occasional bear that wanders through the yard. Marble is special.

What makes this cabin unique

Absolute luxury in the Mountains!!

  • 5 of 5

This amazing retreat was so much nicer than the description or reviews. I had a wonderful time enjoying the deck and view, one doesn't need much more! Yet there is more, the great kitchen provided everything we needed, the bed felt like a cloud I didn't want to leave, we wanted for nothing! Marble offers a great little slice of heaven and the Meek's Hill Cabin was spectacular. We can't wait to return!!

Perfect cabin, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the highlight of our mini vacation. Pictures do not really do it justice. It was quiet, cozy and very clean. The furnishings were extremely comfortable and every detail had been thought of. We especially enjoyed the extensive selection of local history books (we learned a lot about the area), and relaxing on the deck, while taking in the beautiful view of White House Mountain. Can't wait to stay here again!

Meeks Hill Cabin was a wonderful quiet getaway for the two of us. Tom and Kay are great!

The cabin was very clean and organized and well stocked with dishes/pots pans etc in the kitchen, bedroom was very comfortable, slept better then we have in a long time! Didn't want to leave.

Sitting on the deck and enjoying the fresh air and sounds of nature and feeding the hummingbirds kept us busy and quite entertained (boy do they eat a lot!). We even saw a resident marmot. Views are spectacular. We only left the cabin one time to take a drive up to McClure pass and took in more views then returned right away. We missed the cabin. If relaxing and enjoying peace is in your itinerary then this is a must! We will be back.

Great stay in Marble

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two wonderful, stress-free weeks at Meeks Hill cabin. Coming from Charleston, SC in July, we enjoyed the cool mountain temperatures. Sleeping with the windows open and coffee on the deck in the cooling mornings were very enjoyable.

Highlights were hiking to Milton Falls and the Jeep tour to the mining town of Crystal. But noting surpasses the beauty

of the mountains in the Valley.

Our hosts, Tom and Kay, were wonderful hosts.

The cabin was perfect. The Slow Groovin BBQ had really good food and an eclectic clientele.

We will be returning.

Crystal River Valley Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home is delightfully comfortable, beautifully decorated, with an amazing view of White House Mountain from the front deck. My husband and I love the Crystal River Valley where Marble, CO is definitely the end of the road. We spent six nights in this remote mountain retreat and we did NOT want to leave. Comfy couches and queen bed with luxurious linens, perfect ambient lighting, relaxing jacuzzi tub, fully stocked kitchen. Nice being able to wash/dry clothes and have land line and wifi since there's no cell phone reception. Great to unplug but still be available if needed! A huge buck ambled across the lawn while we relaxed on the deck, and there were hummingbirds and chipmunks galore. Horseback riding at Outwest Guides in Marble is a must...best way to experience the majestic Rockies. Can't wait to return.

Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at "The road less traveled" cabin and we have to say its the best cabin we've ever found on VRBO. This part of Colorado is some of the most beautiful in the state. Visits to Aspen, Glenwood Springs and even the other side of the Divide are less than an hour to a hour and a half. Slow Groovin BBQ is a must visit for great food and company. Deer pranced thru the property every evening and my wife saw a Bear cross our gracious host's driveway and back into the woods. The interior of the cabin is very cozy and sitting on the deck watching the hummingbirds frolic was awesome. Marble its self has so many things to see that we couldn't get to all of them so we're already planning a return visit next year. You cannot go wrong selecting this cabin for your vacation.
