About the property

This property is for those desiring a true mountain getaway vacation but with enough amenities to provide for a comfortable retreat. The cabin is cozy yet roomy, is rustic in feel but has ample modern day comforts, offers great privacy but is one of the closest properties to Steamboat Lake and National Forests.

The expansive deck provides extensive outdoor living space with a breathtaking view of Hahn’s Peak. Check out our semi stadium seated fire pit ideal for camp fire dinners and marshmallow roasting. Children will love the numerous “on property” activities including an outdoor “kids cabin”, playing horseshoes below the deck, our over-sized swing, and mountain biking on our trail.

And when the family is ready to explore the surrounding areas finest attractions and recreational activities you won’t have to go far. The cabin is situated on 2 acres of wooded forest directly across from Steamboat Lake State Park and adjacent to National Forest where there are over 1 million acres of US Forest and State Park land at your disposal.

You can walk to the lake following the Mill Creek Trail (about 0.5 miles) or take a 5 minute drive to Meadow Point on Steamboat Lake or continue a few more minutes and be at the marina. USFS access is directly behind the cabin or by USFS Road 42 about 0.25 miles from property.

A den of four fox currently resides on the property and deer and elk are also frequently seen. Bald eagles, Great Heron, ducks, hummingbirds and Sand Hill Cranes are all present in the area.

Your cabin also includes use of equipment to make your vacation memorable from our 2 seat kayak to mountain bikes to horseshoes to fishing equipment. Remember, this is also our vacation get away and is primarily used as such so we have a number of items available for use that are not listed. Make sure to call or email and we can address any specific vacation goals you might have.

This is not a high volume rental property, we only rent a few times a year and no more than once in any 30 day period, and are looking for families wishing to experience this magical area of Colorado who will look out after our place. No partiers please.

About Owner/Manager

The cabin is a family owned vacation getaway used by everyone from grandparents to grandchildren. We are 3rd and now 4th generation Coloradans who have spent considerable time in the Colorado outdoors and competing in various sports. Within our group of families we have a former multi time national Triathlon champion, former number 1 ranked Colorado volleyball player, 2 former freestyle skiing competitors, former state ranked tennis players, a junior 5k national champion and a grandmother who has hit 5 hole in ones!

Note the extensive use of the word 'former' above. We are now working professionals with devote commitments to our families and children. We spend way too much time in an office and not enough at our cabin. The cabin is our escape from everyday life, a chance for the kids to get away from electronics and experience what we did as children, and an opportunity to escape the heat of summer and the crowds of winter.

For families looking for this opportunity, we would be delighted to host you.

Why Owner/Manager chose Clark

The combination of location, charm, practicality and value are the extrinsic reasons why we purchased this cabin; however, it was the more intrinsic attributes such as lifestyle, surrounding beauty, and abundant recreational activities that ultimately made the decision quite easy. The benefits of having both a wilderness experience while still having plenty of comforts really sold us on this cabin.

It was important that the kids had enough to do on property or within walking distance that they weren’t bored waiting around for the various families to get organized to drive everyone to a destination. Further, we recognized that we have family members with distinctly different interests so location would be essential.

For instance, I love to fish but my youngest son does not. I can fish Mill Creek (just across the road from the cabin),or walk to Steamboat Lake while my son rides his mountain bike, builds forts on the property or explores the National Forest behind the cabin without any of us needing to get in a car.

And when we do go for family adventures most are located very close to the cabin. On father’s day, three dads got up early and hiked to the summit of Sand Mountain. We were at the summit within 1.5 hours of the cabin. Fishing in the evenings is fantastic at Steamboat Lake with kids getting plenty of fish. Mountain biking on the USFS access puts you into unbelievably beautiful country within minutes. We can kayak and fish Steamboat, Pearl and Hahn’s Peak Lake within 10-15 minutes. Nature hikes including one of the State’s top ranked short hikes, a marine, visitors center, and bike paths are all within minutes of the cabin.

In winter, you have cross country skiing, snow mobile riding, and snow shoeing to name a few. We will be doing snow kiting this winter as well. You can also make the 45 minute drive to Steamboat Ski Resort.

This is a place where the kids won’t want to leave and neither will the adults.

What makes this cabin unique

Charm – a perfect blend of a rustic mountain cabin with enough modern day amenities to make your stay comfortable.

Location – Tremendous privacy yet exceptionally close to the area’s finest attractions and recreation.

Packages – Not only do you have use of our cabin, but to many of our “toys” as well.

On site activities – Enough to do the property to keep kids and adults happy.

Great Cabin in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent the first week of November here 2017. Snowed early during the stay and then temperature dropped below 10 degrees. The cabin was very comfortable, and roomy enough for 4 adults and our gear.

Great kitchen, roomy den and a very nice wood stove.

The property is well cared for and designed for recreation. Looking forward to returning with the family in the summer to enjoy all the local hiking, fishing, boating and exploring the National Forest!

The greatest cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in an incredibly beautiful spot, and supplied with more than I expected it to offer. This location abounds in variety of activities, scenic views and drives. The development of Steamboat Ski area for mountain biking is great. Watch out for the open-range cattle wandering around the neighborhood, and the cowboys and their dogs herding them down the roads . We appreciated the use of the kayak and paddleboard. This is a wonderful place to visit.

Beautiful property! Close to the lakes we like to fish and kayak at and yet off the beaten path a bit so we felt like we were the only ones around. The deck was amazing to relax on after a full day of activities and we got to use the fire pit several times. Dave is an excellent host and worked hard to make our stay awesome! I would stay at this property again.

Cozy cabin offering lots of activities

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the cabin and we totally enjoy our Colorado visits. The cabin is clean and comfortable with lots of surrounding trees and wildlife, along with a beautiful view of Hahns Peak. Dave and his family generously make all of their equipment available which offers lots of, hiking, kayaking, mountaining biking and more. We love the Hahns Peak area with all of the outdoor recreational opportunities and beautiful scenery in every direction. Dave went out of his way to accommodate us and gave us suggestions and tips for hiking options and fly-fishing locations. If you are looking to enjoy outdoor recreational activities and beautiful scenery, I would highly recommend this cabin and it's location..

Great cabin up in the Colorado Rockies

  • 5 of 5

We went to spend a couple of weeks up in the Colorado Rockies/Routt National Forest, an area we knew and love near Steamboat Lake close to the Continental Divide....Dave and his family facilitated the use of their beautiful cabin in this area for us to enjoy during the month of June and it was superb. The cabin was very clean, comfortable, great natural light ( lots of windows), surrounded with pine trees which gave privacy yet also facilitated a great view from Hahn's peak at all times. We had everything we needed and more. Dave was very attentive at all times regarding any of our needs and very flexible. The beds were comfortable and we truly felt that we were at home at all times even though we were 1500 miles away from home!

The location is outstanding facilitating the guest to have commodities yet still being in the immediate vicinity of mother nature....many forest roads/trails available just walking/mountain biking straight from the cabin especially in May/June since all of these forest roads are closed to motorized traffic for the elk to breed ( that is such a nice thing not needing to get in a car), lots of wildlife in the surroundings ( fox, elks, deers, antelopes ,porky pines,eagles, hawks, falcons, rabbits, coyotes).

The neighbors are very nice and attentive, lots of horses, cattle, llamas, alpacas , donkeys/mules. Dave also made available the use of most of the recreational gear they have within the home which was very nice and usually not available in any other place we have been at this included mountain bikes, kayak, etc.

The house has a great outdoor cozy fire pit which is very unique and makes the experience even better to share with family/neighbors/friends. We had a local friend who brought his guitar and kept us entertained during the night under some amazing night skies.

The Tour the Divide is a great bike event that happens every year starting in June and goes right in front of Dave's property so it was fun to see who was in the vicinity while we were still there.

For those who are adventurers , love the mountains and being surrounded by mother nature yet want some commodities, this is the place to be.

The Clark store, the Roadhouse and Hahn's peak Cafe were 3 good local venues to visit and get a bite and small supplies while there, and mingle with the locals.

We highly recommend the cabin owned by the Pettigrew family who definitely have great care for this property ,love this area and are wanting to share with others

Owner's Response: Tamara – Thank you for this flattering review, but I have to say that it reflects more about you than it does us. You took great care of our property, came with a super adventurous attitude and tremendous appreciation for the surrounding environment. We were grateful to host you and nothing pleases us more than having responsible families who can enjoy their stay as much as you have. Thanks for your emails and sharing your stories/pictures of your many adventures. Loved the photos from your 3 summit day hike! - Dave

Convenient nad comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad the Pettigrew's have allowed us to enjoy their cabin. The views from the living room and the front porch were absolutely priceless. The kids enjoyed the mountain bikes and were easily able to ride across the road and catch some trout. The cabin was supplied with all the amenities we needed for a weeks stay and we were able hike and hunt right from the cabin. We have stayed in other cabins where the access was sometimes difficult, but the Pettigrew's cabin was very convenient and cozy.

I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Pettigrew's!
