2 Br, 2bath, Single Level Custom Log Cabin On 70 Acres.
The close proximity of both town and Nature, combined with the exceptional attributes of our one of a kind log cabin and the very fair price, make our home an unbeatable choice for those who long to get away from it all into the quiet of wide open spaces and skies of Northwestern Colorado, but with some added comfort.
The first two things you will notice when you walk into our home is how full of light the house is and how you can't stop looking out the windows. Log cabins tend to be dark and a bit claustrophobic. Ours feels like a breath of fresh air.
Each room, including the bathrooms, has it's own forever view. When you can tear yourself away from the windows you will notice how charming, tastefully and simply this house is furnished and how beautifully it has been crafted. There is no clutter or personal stuff. The closets and cabinets are empty and ready for your use! At the same time there is everything you need for your comfort. The kitchen is extremely well supplied. The master bedroom has a comfy king size bed and bath with shower and its own private deck. The twin bedroom can easily be turned into another king and it also has it's own bath with shower. IF you can tear yourself away from the views and night skies there is a 37 inch flat screen TV in the living room with a Direct TV subscription or a DVD player. There is also a 5CD player if music is how you choose to relax. There is also an internet wireless connection. If there is a chill in the air the wood stove/fireplace heats the whole house and augments the in floor heating.
Outside on the large forever view deck there is an awning that can be unfurled to provide protection from the sun as you dine, read a book or watch the birds at the bird feeder. A barbecue allows you to cook outside in the summer. Usually people never want to leave to do anything else.
In addition, the 70 surrounding acres gives you plenty of room to roam and explore. The elk frequently visit during both summer and winter and the coyotes are usually heard yipping in the distance as you sleep at night.
South of Steamboat Springs around the ski area is especially crowded in both summer and winter. You will be in your own private Colorado in our one of a kind cabin on the hill.

About Hansi Hagemeister
Susie and Hansi live in Northern California, Susie in the wine country and Hansi just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Steamboat Springs has always been our 'second home' from the time we were very young and the ski area was just being built. We used to camp up on the ski mountain before there were any runs! Both of us lived in Steamboat for periods of our younger lives, attending the dance and drama camp, Stephens Perry Mansfield, skiing, guiding rivers and hiking in the mountains. We visit Steamboat as often as our lives allow as it as much a part of us as our Northern California homes.
Hansi Hagemeister purchased this Cabin in 1965
Why Hansi Hagemeister chose Steamboat Springs
This property was first discovered by our father in the 1960's when he fell in love with Steamboat and decided to fulfill his dream of owning a cattle ranch. The original ranch was 300 acres and extended across the Elk River. In 1975 he built the first version of our log cabin. For 20 years our family enjoyed spending time together in what our mother called 'dad's ranch in the sky'. In 1996 the cabin burned to the ground and his two daughters rebuilt the cabin as it was by this time an honored member of the family. All but 70 acres of the original ranch have been sold but the feeling is the same as it always has been, forever views across Colorado ranch land and mountains.

Beautiful property! Views are incredible from each room!
Beautiful cabin, reminds me of a cabin in the Alps. Has wood burning fireplace, which makes it very cozy. Views are incredible and property is secluded. Front door lock is a bit tricky, though.
Serene, well-appointed cabin with fabulous views
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Forever View Cabin, and it does have a forever view of the Sleeping Giant, which is perfectly framed by the living room window, as well as views of the surrounding valley and mountains. The cabin is very comfortable, peaceful and well-appointed, the views are fabulous and meditative, and it’s just a short 10-minute drive into town and another 10 minutes beyond town to the ski area. It’s well worth the extra bit of driving, and my daughter and I look forward to returning someday soon.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our cabin. I am so glad you enjoyed the amazing views and the cabin comforts. Look forward to hearing from you again!
Perfect Steamboat Springs retreat
We spent 5 nights at the cabin and enjoyed every minute. We found the property to be exactly as described - easy to find and also secluded. We drive a Subaru Outback and so navigating the driveway was no problem - and shouldn't be for most vehicles. Privacy and quiet are top criteria for us and the cabin fit the bill perfectly. The house is well maintained as was very clean. We had no problems as all during our visit but appreciated that the caretaker was just a phone call away in case we had any questions or issues. The views are amazing with large windows in every room. If you want stainless steel appliances and a giant tv then the cabin is not for you. But if you seek a quiet retreat that is clean, comfortable and exudes warmth, then the cabin is just the ticket! We loved it and will definitely return.
Thank you Joni for writing such a nice review. I am so happy you enjoyed the cabin and appreciated it’s unique qualities of privacy and beauty. It is definitely a retreat from the busy world. We look forward to hearing from you again! Happy New Year.

Very cool- very responsive owner & great Intel on the property- beds are killer! We were there and the temps in steamboat got up to 85 but this place stayed cool all day & nighttime with windows open is great! Very comfy place with killer views!
Thank you Terry for your nice review. I am so glad you enjoyed our special place.
Yes, it does stay cool up there on the hill and evenings always cool in the mountains.
Please come back anytime!
Beautiful is the first word that comes to mind
What a treat, highlight of our travels through Colorado was our stay in this cabin! I would never tire of the view! It was clean, comfortable and had everything you would need or want! Loved it
I am so glad you enjoyed our cabin. It really is a special spot isn't it? And you don't see it until you walk through the front door and you go WOW! Hope to see you again soon.
