About the Property
3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Traditional Finnish sauna
*New* We now have high speed 40Mb internet and Wifi for our guests, and utility power!
Our 2000 square foot cabin is built for guests. We have 3 private bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The 2nd floor loft has a private bedroom with queen bed and its own bathroom. The main floor bedroom has two twin beds and full bathroom. Downstairs is another full guest suite including a queen bed and full private bath. The kitchen has plenty of space for cooking. There is a gas range, a full set of cookware and spices. Washer and dryer are included. The TV room has a 40 inch flatscreen with satellite TV, a small movie selection, and a few games.
We love the outdoor living, so we added 600 square feet of deck facing down the valley to the continental divide. A large outdoor grill with side burner is plumbed directly to our home - no worry about running out of propane! The patio table includes a gas fire pit to warm the cool evenings.
Walk a few hundred feet down a hundred year old trail to the waterfalls of Little Bear Creek. The creek originates at the top of our land. It tumbles down the center of the property over several private waterfalls.
Game passes through the property as a migration route from Mt. Evans to lower elevations. Deer and elk are common. Bear have been seen on the property. A lynx has left its tracks, but we haven't seen it yet. Our resident foxes are almost pets. Bird lovers will see hummingbirds and friendly gray jays around the cabin.
Enjoy a traditional Finnish sauna in the evening. It is a separate building made from local whole logs with a Lamppa Kuuma wood stove and rustic barnwood and stone interior. It is a truly traditional experience with a cold water faucet and a hot water tank heated by the stove.
The cabin sits between Evergreen and Idaho Springs, convenient for access to the mountain communities, ski hills, and Arapahoe National Forest. Denver is less than an hour away.
The property is now on the power grid! We have been off-grid for years, but utility power is more convenient for our guests. We also have a new 40Mb internet service with WiFi for our guests. There is no phone line. We use cell phones in the cabin. There is radiant in-floor heat throughout the cabin, on all floors.
We often get asked the altitude. The cabin is at 9600 feet. At this elevation there are a lot of trees and a lot of sun. Snow stays on the ground from November through April.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Why the Owner Chose Idaho Springs, CO, USA:
For us, this cabin and land is about privacy and the best of mountain living. There is no better place to spend time with our kids and extended family. Even though we live only 20 minutes away in Evergreen, this is where we go to "check out" from busy schedules. It is close enough to drive to either Idaho Springs or Evergreen restaurants and stores, and halfway between the city attractions of Denver and the ski slopes. Idaho Springs is about 20 minutes away down a mountain road with switchbacks. It has a great selection of restaurants, including our favorite Texas style barbecue at Smokin Yards, the famous Beau Jo's Pizza, and Tommyknockers micro brewery. Evergreen is 25 minutes away for additional restaurants, live bands at Little Bear Saloon or Cactus Jacks, large box grocery stores, Wal-mart, and Home Depot.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Blue Valley Cabin has privacy that is hard to find anywhere. With 150 acres there are no neighbors, but unlimited views.
