About the Property

Spacious, open cabin, sleeps three, one bathroom, stunning mountain views.

Perfect place for a romantic getaway, a relaxing meditation retreat, a space to revive your artistic muse, or a comfortable base for your outdoor adventures.

Enjoy a sunny, stylish, well appointed but uncluttered cabin with spacious open floor plan that comfortably sleeps three (one queen bed, one full pull out bed). One full bathroom, full kitchen (fridge, new gas stove, oven and microwave), ample cookware and dishes, large deck with outdoor grill and outdoor dining table and seating, even a brand new washer and dryer, wifi. Quality linens provided. Everything you need to relax, rejuvenate or energize with recreation in the Colorado Rockies.

-- Near historic Gold Hill; dine at the rustic gourmet Gold Hill Inn
-- Secluded 10 acre lot location surrounded by National Forest with no visible houses or roads
-- Endless opportunities for recreation (hiking, trail running, biking) right outside the door
-- Close to Brainard Lake Recreation Area

The cabin is nestled among Ponderosa and aspen trees at nearly 9,000 ft elevation, where you will enjoy dry, fresh pine-scented air and ubiquitous warm sun during the day. Sip your morning coffee while soaking in the views from the deck. Fill the feeder and watch hummingbirds all day. This location is nearly always 15 degrees cooler than the Boulder area, so there is never a need for air conditioning. Evenings are crisp even in the height of summer, so don't forget your jacket!


Available from May through the fall foliage season in October. It is closed and not available November - April.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am a recovering attorney pursuing my dream job of conservation work in Washington State. I love cooking, x-c skiing, road biking, modern art, foreign films, art documentaries, travel, and continually working to improve my Spanish. Next trips on my plate: exploration of my new home the Pacific Northwest! Favorite spot on the globe: Paris. I am a good humored host who will treat you fairly and ethically. You can expect a very clean cabin and a standing offer to help you plan local adventures and find good food. Just ask!

Why the Owner Chose Jamestown, CO, USA:
I stayed as a guest at this cabin 10 years before I would eventually own it. I loved it from day one, and still find it to be the most zen-like place I have ever stayed. The quiet setting instills a feeling of peace and appreciation for the great beauty of the Colorado mountains. This is my only rental property, and my second home. I take great pride in the comfort and satisfaction of my guests and hope you will love this place as much as I do.
