About PJ Lahn
We reside in Erie, CO and enjoy spending time at 'The Little Cabin that did'. We call it that because even though it sits just steps from the St. Vrain river, it survived the Colorado flood of 2013 that devastated much of the area, with not a scratch. Please browse through 'A Thousand Year Rain' a book that depicts the severe damage (and great courage) of the events of the flood when you visit the cabin. We offer the cabin to travelers as it was meant to be shared and enjoyed by many.
PJ Lahn purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why PJ Lahn chose Boulder County
Spending time next to the river is so calming and the town and surround area have so much history both in the properties in the area and the local towns and attractions. You can sit and enjoy the river and mountain views and read and relax during your stay or you can go explore the area, be it in the bustling town of Estes, or hiking near Brainard Lake, or biking the mountain roads.
What makes this Cabin unique
'The Little Cabin that did' is unique for its large riverfront access along with its rustic log construction. It has all the amenities of home and a beautiful old fashioned stove nestled in the kitchen. The screened in porch calls for you to sit and drink your morning coffee from the porch swing. You are secluded, but can go adventure close by.

Adorable cabin right on the river!
We loved our stay! Such a cozy and fun little cabin. Loved being right on the river, sitting on the porch swing and sitting by the fire. The cabin is very comfortable and has a well stocked kitchen. It also has a very personal feel to it that just makes it feel special. The loft is a great space for kids to get away from the adults. The boys loved fishing in the river and hiking in the area. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us. Saw a huge bull moose about a mile from the cabin one day!
Wonderful little cabin in the woods
We LOVED this cabin!!!!!!!!!
The creek running along the back of the cabin was stunning!
Great place to relax and enjoy a family vacation.
We loved drinking coffee every morning in the screened in porch as we enjoyed watching the beautiful creek, squirrels running up and down the trees and humming birds chasing each other. The house is very comfortable with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing stay. We are already talking about when we might plan another vacation and reserve this cabin again.
The Little Cabin that did!
We enjoyed our week log stay at the cabin. Plenty of room for three adults and our dog. Having the river right next door made for the perfect white noise machine, slept like a rock. The cabin was clean, and the kitchen had everything we needed to make multiple different meals. There was also a great, big screen TV, and blazing fast internet.
The cabin is in the perfect location. You're 20 minutes outside Lyons, but it feels like you're miles away from civilization.
Exactly what we needed!
The cabin was pretty perfect! There was nothing better than getting up in the morning, walking out the back door, and sitting right by the river! The cabin looks small from the outside, but is spacious on the inside. The third bedroom (in the loft) is accessed through the second bedroom, so be aware of that. It was not as secluded as it appeared, but I never felt like I was in the middle of a community. It's a peaceful little get away!
