Heiden’s Hideaway, located outside Bayfield, CO in the majestic San Juan Mountains, is the perfect getaway for any season of the year. This 2-story cabin was built ten years ago on 2 acres of serene wilderness, surrounded by tall pine trees in the beautiful community of Forest Lakes, Colorado. Within this community we have Lake Simpatico, a private 25 acre lake that is stocked with fish waiting to bite and does not require a fishing license. It is located 6 miles north of Bayfield where you can find amenities such as grocery stores, movie rentals and several restaurants for your added convenience. (Four wheel drive and/or chains necessary during winter months).
The cabin is also located only 20 miles south of Vallecito Lake, one of the largest lakes in Colorado where you can enjoy endless activities such as, hiking, boating, fishing, horseback riding, jet skiing in the summer, ice fishing, skiing, tubing and snow shoeing in the winter. You can also easily enjoy the superb shopping and dining in the historic city of Durango, only 30 miles away.
The cabin is available all year and throughout the hunting season and is located near over a half million acres of public land and big game habitat and is a top pick for hunting Elk, Mule Deer and Turkey. Guided hunting trips are available.
Whether you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy some truly quiet time to rejuvenate or if you are an outdoors enthusiast and have an adventurous spirit, our home away from home has access to it all.
The cabin is nicely furnished and has all modern conveniences and features a beautiful covered front porch which is a favorite place to enjoy a morning coffee, take in the beautiful surroundings and watch the wildlife meandering by including deer, elk and if you are real lucky a bear. (Please keep your food indoors and trash in designated containers). Enjoy high ceilings, lots of natural light, two bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. On the first floor you will also find a fully equipped kitchen, a cozy living room with comfy recliners and chairs, ceiling fan, and 47” HD TV.
