Amazing location for Fly Fishing and visiting the Colorado Rocky Mountains

  • 5 of 5

The host is on the property and very friendly. The property is at the junction of two rivers on the edge of Leadville, Colorado. Walk out the door, down the driveway and you're standing in the Arkansas River fly fishing just that fast. Better yet, this is a private stretch of the river, so there is no looking for a spot between other anglers, it's all yours! It's a great place for a couple to get away from everything. There is no wifi, and cell service is sketchy inside the cabin at times, so it's quiet. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. The decorations are very mountain-lodge-like, and it has a pool table if you're indoors long enough to use it. It has a deck with amazing views. Literally borders the National Forest, so hiking starts on the property. Turquoise Lake is a five minute drive through the forest. There are four-wheeling trails nearby. We live on the front range of Colorado. We've been all over the mountains over the years and can't think of a better place to spend a few nights, or a few weeks!

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place is gorgeous! Very clean and beautiful furnishings. Very comfortable bed. It has a hand carved bar and pool table. Not only that, the owners are very nice and helpful and have the sweetest dog, Rosie!

Howard gave us directions to a great trail to take our ATV to the top of the mountain where there was still snow and a small lake! Simply gorgeous. He even loaned us some fishing lures to fish for trout in the rivers in front of the house!

We have stayed at many cabins but they go out of the way to provide. Normally, you are responsible for your own charcoal, laundry soap, etc. but they provided all of this! Even sample coffees for the Keurig!

They have Direct TV which was great the night it rained. It backs up to a National Forest and is an easy trip into town if you want to eat there. We definitely enjoyed it and recommend it!

Great location and views!

  • 5 of 5

The location feels away from it all, even though its a quick drive to the fun town of Leadville, or to Turquoise Lake and the abundance of challenging hikes, like Colo Midland RR Trail to Hagerman Lake. Such convenient trout fishing right down the hill, and plenty of comfortable places to sit outside and soak in the views! The Holts were extremely accommodating!

5 stars all the way! We visited for our 10th year anniversary and left the kids at home. Comfortable, clean, well stocked and wonderful hosts! The PRIVATE fishing is wonderful in the two rivers that run through the property. Great hiking very close. We will be back!
