About Holly & Jeff Stever

Welcome to our Twin Lakes cabin. We purchased 18 acres in 1998 and built in 2004. The property stretches eastward down to the road and west to the Aspen Grove you see at the intersection of County Road 10/ E E Hill Drive and Reva Ridge Road. When our girls were younger they had great fun looking for bones in the aspen grove, then throwing them back for next time! Spending time here with family and friends is always a good time so we hope you enjoy your stay!

Thank you!

Holly and family

Guestbook comments from the owner

Holly and Jeff,

I wanted to thank you both for sharing your vacation house with us.

We enjoyed the comfort of the house, the ever changing views of the mountains, the cool temperatures away from the heat wave in Boulder, the hummingbirds and the chipmunks!

Along with us, my sister and her family (visiting from France) really did appreciate using the house as base camp for day trips in the high country.

Above everything, the calm and the silent nights made all of us very lucky!

Peace, Quite and Lots of Activities

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful home in such an awesome location, that I didn't want to write a review so that I could keep it as a hidden secret. The house works great for a large family gathering. You have everything you need when you get there. and the owners are such great people to work with that it made the trip very easy. It is a quite and relaxing spot with so many great things to do in the area. The views from the house are breath taking. If you are thinking about visiting the Twin Lakes area don't pass this one up.

Great Cabin to stay if climbing Mt. Elbert.
