About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 adults, 3 children)

In just one hour you can get away from it all at this quiet mountain retreat. Watch the sunset behind St. Mary's Glacier from the deck with a glass of wine or a beer. If it gets a little chilly, light a fire in the outdoor fire pit, or head inside, light a fire in the cast iron stove and gaze out the 2 story A frame windows. Walking distance to the glacier hike and fishing (2 passes included)! Hike, mountain bike or snowshoe out the front door. A short drive to skiing, snowboarding, rafting, Mt. Evans and Idaho Springs.

All the furnishings are new! Master bedroom has a platform queen size bed with a cozy down comforter. The loft has 3 twin beds perfect for kids. The couch converts into a unique platform-style queen size bed - very comfortable! The kitchen is fully stocked and ready to use. Brand new washer and dryer are so convenient after a busy day outside. Dining area seats 6. All that is missing is you!

About Millicent Ambroggio

We are a busy family of 6 from Colorado.

Millicent Ambroggio purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Millicent Ambroggio chose Front Range

This is our vacation home too! We love being in the mountains and this cabin is private but still close to our family and friends in Denver. We get the best of both worlds here!

What makes this cabin unique

Every morning we get up and play games in our pajamas instead of watching cartoons. We love the family time together without the interruption and distraction of electronics. This past summer we all went rafting and had a blast. When we want a night out, Idaho Springs is so close with lots of great places to eat and shop.

Great location, everything exactly as described, plus some.

  • 4 of 5

The location was great and we loved the seclusion. We didn't get check in instructions until less than 24 hours to check in time, but overall very nice! We wished the windows had curtains and the front door was difficult to unlock & open. Lots of little extras, very comfortable beds, nice bathroom, and we loved the games and binoculars that were there! Loved being able to walk to hike the Glacier.

Scenic, secluded, unplugged mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to find a quiet place in the mountains where we could walk out our door and be in nature, or snuggle up with the comforts of home inside. Great open windows with plenty of light and a sunny deck were perfect places to play a game or read a book! This was the perfect place! With very limited cell reception and no wi-fi, it was truly a place to get away from the busyness of life and unplug for a few days. We hiked to nearby St. Mary's Glacier and walked down to the private lake several times. Idaho Springs was also close enough to head in for dinner at BeauJo's (pizza), grab some groceries and do a little shopping. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a couple condiments we had forgotten. So many wonderful memories of our time there!

Awesome cabin- location is amazing

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for a long weekend or extended stay. You could spend a couple days easy just exploring what's within walking distance without ever leaving the mountain. Beds are Uber comfy and the kids had a blast in the loft just hanging out. We are already planning our next visit!

Want to go back

  • 5 of 5

It's been a while since my husband got time away from our toddler to stay in this wonderful cabin and WE STILL TALK ABOUT IT. I kept saying to him that anything I think of that I already there. My husband fired up the small fire pit outside and then we snuggled by the fire inside in the cast iron stove. I drank coffee on the deck and hiked the glacier. Not one complaint. Thank you for a wonderful exprience.

Would stay here again

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in the cabin. My one minor complaint is that some of the questions in my pre-visit emails were not acknowledged or addressed. That aside, everything regarding the cabin was provided as promised, and the cabin was neat and clean on arrival. Rules and instructions for cabin use were very clear. We were particularly grateful for the well-organized kitchen, as well as the close proximity of the glacier trails (maybe a 5-minute drive). The cabin itself is cozy and secluded, and we would absolutely consider staying here again. Thanks!
