About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

This beautiful, expansive, architect-designed cabin sits nestled between a 40-foot high granite outcropping, grove of Quaking Aspen trees, and glistening Douglass Firs, and a wildflower meadow. Walk out of the floor-to- cathedral ceiling windows onto the great deck overlooking your own private pond, and you might just seize a glimpse of local moose and deer coming down for a drink.

Now step back inside and curl up into the plush leather sofas in front of the immense stone fireplace as it crackles and warms the crisp mountain air. In this same spacious living and dining area you can sense and feel like you are in the woods because it visually surrounds you through large operable windows. In this space also lies a grand kitchen well-equipped for any culinary adventure. The gas grill and outdoor dining allow you to take the adventure, or your freshly-caught fish, outside as well.

Enjoy high speed wireless internet, or satellite TV, and a DVD player. Head down to the massive ground level great room with large windows and play a few games on the Ping Pong, Foosball, or Pool tables. Or select a board game to play. Take your pick.

Come nightfall, you’ll love one of the 5 bedrooms with log walls provided with a plush queen bed in each, large loft and the great room at the garden level with multiple double futons, wood burning stove and plenty of space to spread. There are 3 full bathrooms, one on each level.

Whatever size group you have, from your 14 person ($20 surcharge per person/night beginning with the 9th person) family reunion, to your personal family vacation, you’ll find a family-friendly, welcoming retreat inside this modern cabin in the woods. We’d love to share our mountain home with you.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: Colorado has been our home now for over 60 years. McKay and Velma built this beautiful retreat with the design from their architect son and labor of love from their family. This family friendly cabin was to fulfill one goal, bring their large family together and preserve the love of family and dedication to each other for future generations to come. Velma's award winning landscape art adorn the cabin. Mckay's love of mountains from Star Valley Wyoming to Bear Lake Idaho instilled in him a great love for the outdoors. After meeting at BYU, they married and moved to Boulder Colorado where they raised their 7 children. Now they both want to share this cabin with other families to promote getting together and enjoying the Rocky Mountain Red Feather Lake Area.

Why Red Feather Lakes, CO, USA:
The beauty of the Red Feather Lakes area is our favorite place. The family grew up with the mountains as their back yard living in Boulder Colorado for over 50 years. The majestic granite out cropping, the stands of Quaking Aspen Trees interlaced with Lodge Pole Pine trees and glistening Douglas Fir with views of white capped mountain peaks and green meadows have always been the answer for a tranquil escape for our family. The property was purchased and the cabin was carefully located to experience all of these.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the fact that Moose, Elk, and Deer travel down the mountain stream next to the cabin and graze on the willows and grass and drink from the pond in the meadow. We love this architecturally designed home because it feels so tranquil among the woods with glass all around giving views to the woods, meadow, and mountains.
