Updated Fly Fishing Cabin on the Gold Medal South Platte by Deckers Co. WiFi/HBO

Bedrooms 2
Space 650 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Sleeps 5+ w/ King, Queen, Twin and AreoBed. Only cabin in area with WiFi/Sat TV

Updated cabin 200 feet from the South Platte River, with WifI, phone and HBO and room AC. I accept 90% of requests if the dates are open. Include useful info on yourselves and your fellow users when inquiring, please. We are one mile north of Decker's in the community of Trumbull. Located along miles of public access Gold Medal trout fishing, this is a great place to start and finish your fishing or float day on the river. The river is a 5 minute walk from the front door. This river is fishing great (Rainbows and Browns over 18"' are common) and if you don't get out early, you will miss the good spots, so this property is perfect for the fisherman. The cabin is remodeled and has a full modern kitchen, dining table, couch and easy chair and a Big Screen TV with Dish and WiFi (if you like seeing your e-mail, this is the only So. Platte cabin for you)). The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans and dishware. Gas range/oven, microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee pot and dining table. There are some condiments available, Toilet paper, paper towels, dish towels and other misc items are onsite.

One private bedroom with a King water bed, a bedroom with a Twin, and a Queen pull-out couch w/ extra foam topper.

Newer Bath with shower. There is a porch for donning and removing/drying fishing gear. It is a great sleeping porch.. While there is a window AC unit in the living room, it is rare that the nights are too warm, so open the windows and enjoy the fresh air. You can hear birds and frogs at night and will see deer and occasional elk on or near the property.

There is a large covered gazebo for relaxing and having a beer while you grill your dinner. There is no cell service in the valley- there is a phone at the cabin.

This is offered to responsible adults for fishing, and quiet enjoyment. Have a few beers but don't be jerks, and you are welcome back!

Depending on how you utilize the beds, it can sleep 3 to 6. That is the maximum I will allow. A dog is an option, for small additional fee. As a dog owner, I know how nice it is to bring your dog. I have a fenced area and dog door for your pet's use. If your dog barks too much, and offends the few neighbors I have, I will terminate your visit. Please be considerate. Keep pets off the furniture for the sake of other guests.

Tubing on the river is popular and safe as the river is usually less than 3 feet deep but deeper holes do exist. A tuber can run down 10 miles of river if they choose. The water is dam controlled so it is rarely running fast but if you have children under 14 years old, I require a life jacket. You need to provide your own watercraft and life vests.

A small restaurant, a liquor store, a general store and fly shop are 1 mile away. Ask me about guided fly fishing!

About Art Momper

I live in Littleton Co and use this cabin myself. I take Combat Wounded Veterans hunting and fishing in Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska, so I cannot use it as often and I decided to 'share' my cabin. Ask about discounts for military and wounded warriors.

Why Art Momper chose Castle Rock Area

There are limited rental choices and most of the rental properties in the area are very basic, and have no WiFi/e-mail. This is a nice property with all the comforts including WiFi and HBO and Big Screen TV, land line phone, full kitchen, newer bath, and covered gazebo outside for shade and dining. There is NO CELL SERVICE in this valley so if you want to communicate to anyone outside, this cabin is the only choice!

What makes this cabin unique

Location is excellent- walk to fishing. Off the river a few hundred feet, so not as much traffic or activity to disturb you. Sits a bit higher so you have a good view.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Paul. I am disappointed that you took off a star because of the water bed, which is clearly mentioned in the description. I get many good comments on it and it is an expensive type of mattress with no wave, etc. I know you caught fish!

We loved the cabin. Nice and clean, nicely updated, located right by the river.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Art's cabin for three days in early May 2017. We really liked the place and it was just what we needed for a quiet long weekend without the kids. While the cabin looks rustic on the outside, it is nicely updated and kind of "high-tech" on the inside, including renovated kitchen, satellite TV, nice bathroom, etc. The screen porch and outdoor patio add a nice touch too, especially if you just need to sit down, relax and enjoy the view. It is also a convenient place to store your fishing equipment before you go out the next day. The biggest plus for me was that the cabin is located right on the South Platte river (the river is just across the road), which is a great fishery. I had a blast catching "highly schooled" South Platte trout on little dry flies (there was a nice, mid-day BWO hatch). The little town of Deckers is just a couple of miles away where you can find a restaurant and fly fishing store. In short, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back.

Owner's Response: I really appreciate your comments! The Platte continues to produce large trout. Good job catching them. I try to keep everything in good condition and I am the only cabin in the area with full 'comfort' features, WIFI and satellite big screen TV . I look forward to your return visit in July.

Updated cabin with WiFi and HBO and phone on the South Platte River between Denver and Colorado Springs, CO. Pike National Forest, Hiking, mountain biking. OHV, ATV and dirt bike riding nearby at Ramparts Range and Sprucewood.

Try tubing on the river, and swimming in the Platte. This is a 'tailwater river', meaning it is flow controlled by a dam, so it is rarely running at levels that are difficult to handle. In Spring and early summer, the river runs several feet deep to spots 4-5' deep. Later in the summer, it may only be 2-3 foot deep in the main channels. It still fishes great. Watch for Bald Eagles in season! You will see the occasional Osprey eating a trout! Ducks, geese and hummingbirds are frequent.

Castle Rock is 35 minutes away, Denver is 50 minutes and Woodland Park/Colorado Springs is 40 minutes south. The nearest town is Buffalo Creek, 25-30 minutes, with limited services. Gas and one restaurant.
