Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

We invite you to enjoy the inspiring space of our modest, two bedroom mountain cabin nestled in the Rocky Mountains. The cabin is a short scenic drive west of Boulder, Colorado and only two miles from the quaint and colorful mountain town of Nederland, CO. Built in the early 1900's, our house was the baggage depot which serviced the historic, Switzerland Trail Railroad. The cabin sits at approximately 8600 ft., is south facing, adorned with a lot of glass, great natural light and is passive solar. It is located off a county dirt road, providing easy winter access, situated in a lovely riparian valley, surrounded by Boulder County Open Space and the Roosevelt National Forest.

We remolded this historic cabin in the late 1990's, but not without first falling in love with the wonderful character and imperfections of this turn of the century structure. We purposely kept what we could, like the original hardwood floor, and took great care to salvage and recycle as much of the original, weathered materials, and then integrated them back into our home. Though 100 years old, our cabin offers the comfort of all the modern amenities, while preserving it's rustic charm in a uniquely, eclectic style. Reclaimed, hand hewn timbers accent the the cabin exterior, the master bedroom, and the one of a kind, rustic, hand poured bathroom. Hammered metal details and homemade doors add a wonderful, hand made touch throughout. Furnishings and decorations artistically blend textures from around the globe, as well as from local artisans, all of which enhance the uniqueness of your stay.

Our cabin is the ideal location for a romantic getaway, as well as a wonderful place to escape the summer heat or the hustle and bustle of the city. Relax and rejuvenate in the magic of our home and the clean Rocky Mountain air. Sit on your front porch while drinking your morning coffee. Soak in the sunshine viewing the native mountain wildflowers and listen to the melodic flowing stream along with the chirping chorus of the ubiquitous hummingbird and the song of the native mountain birds.

For the history buff, the valley in which our cabin sits, is steeped in mining history Our cabin specifically, is the gateway house before entering the New Cardinal historic mill site, which in its heyday, was one of the largest gold mines in the area. Across the road is a cute, well maintained cabin, that was the New Cardinal brothel, in the early 1900's. The remnants of the Switzerland Trail Railroad is only steps from your door, This, historic railroad grade offers a network of hiking, mountain biking and in the winter, cross country skiing trails right out your door. The extensive Nederland mountain biking trail systems are also accessed from your doorstep. Be at the Eldora Ski Resort, which offers downhill skiing, snowboarding and nordic skiing in only 10 minutes.

For the outdoor enthusiast, not only is there hiking, mountain bike riding and cross country skiing out your door, but just a few miles away in Boulder Canyon there is rock climbing, swimming, kayaking and fly fishing. The high alpine peaks of the Indian Peak Wilderness Area are easily accessed and only a short distance away. If you prefer a scenic mountain drive, or a spectacular road bike ride, the Peak to Peak Highway is two miles from our cabin, taking you to Rocky Mountain National Park to the north, or to the casinos of Black Hawk, and Central City to the south. The progressive town of Boulder itself is 17 miles down the canyon road, and offers a large variety of shopping, restaurants and the famous Pearl Street Mall.

Fabulous Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Really excellent mountain escape, perfect size for a couple (and a 1.5 year old in our case...). The cabin is just the right amount of rustic, and very well maintained. It's a short drive outside of Nederland, with Boulder a little farther away if you're looking for an actual city. We happened to get snowed in by a mega spring snowstorm which (a) really added to the remote mountain experience and (b) gave Roxanne a chance to show off her caring host side. Throughout our little adventure she was super responsive and diligent in making sure we were cared for. Can't recommend this place enough, we miss it!

Perfect home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful mountain home, all the amenities you will need. Roxanne is the perfect level of communicator, checking in to see if you need anything. She worked hard to get the driveway plowed so we were able to come and go freely after a big snow. We will be back!

Christmas in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We rented Caribou Cabin for a family gathering with our daughter, her new husband, and daughter for Christmas. Not only did we have a White Christmas but Caribou Cabin provided such a historical atmosphere that took us back in time!! Especially looking out the side at the outhouse on the hill!! It oozes with character and charm. The kitchen was wonderful for preparing our Christmas feast and allowed whoever was cooking to still be involved with everyone as they played games or watched movies in the great room. The glass wall & deck provided such spectacular views as the snow fell and collected in the trees...it was breathtaking!!

There were 5 of us at certain times and we had plenty of space. We even took advantage of the snow saucer to glide down the road as we played in the snow!! We really felt like we were in the wilderness and far away from society...enjoying family time together!!

Roxanne was very accommodating and would get back to me quickly whether it be through email or phone calls. I would love to come back in the summer to enjoy and explore Nederland further!!

Special, much loved, mountainside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family Thanksgiving weekend at Roxane's home. The house is very well cared for, and very comfortable, with a lovely view and atmosphere. The house has a great kitchen with warm nook, great library for the outdoor reader and great location, close enough to Boulder and close to mountain activities. It truly was a magical mountain getaway.
