Stunning Views Of The Indian Peaks On Mountain Lake

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 10

Located a few miles south of Peaceful Valley on the Peak-to-Peak highway, this mountain home is more like a resort than a cabin. Situated on 4 stunning acres, the cabin offers breathtaking views of the Indian Peaks. The cabin has 22 foot cathedral ceilings in the great room and comfortably sleeps 10. There are additional beds in the loft above the detached garage. The cabin also has 220 feet of private lake access to Hidden Lake. A canoe, paddle boat, and kayak are available for use at the cabin's private dock, and the lake is stocked with trophy size trout (catch and release only). A private hot tub also awaits guests outside the back door. The Cabin is conveniently located just minutes to the trails at Brainard Lake State Park.

We loved staying in Peaceful Valley!

  • 4 of 5

The pictures of this home do not do it justice! It was beautiful, scenic, peaceful and perfect for our family! We were located in the middle of a wide variety of places to visit and activities to do but you really don't have to leave the property if you don't want to! The home has a beautiful lake that you have access to fishing, canoeing, paddle boating, kayaking and a peaceful view from a lovely swing! They also have a wonderful hot tub to enjoy as well!

We brought our own food, and cooked for 10 in their well stocked kitchen. I think the only minor drawback for us was washing dishes for so many since there was no dishwasher. Still, we managed and felt very blessed in staying in this lovely home! Thanks Mark for a delightful stay! We would love to visit again!

We had a great time! Mark was very nice and helpful before and during the trip. The cabin was clean and large with beautiful views! We loved being surrounded by nature. Had fun with the paddle boats and walking around the property. Would recommend this cabin for your next vacation!

The place is really nice. It feels like you are just the family guest when you are there

  • 5 of 5

We had a group together for an Army reunion and had a great experience. The cabin had everything we needed and could have wanted. Beautiful views from the porch and by the lake. Mark was incredible to work with while setting up the event. Highly recommend!

An amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Such an incredible place. So secluded, you feel like you are the only people around. The pictures really don't do it justice. A warm and comfortable home, right on a lake, and the beautiful scenery out every window. Really couldn't have been happier staying here.

Fantastic vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

This home has all the comforts you'd want with stunning views of the mountains from the kitchen, family room, and the wrap around deck.

We enjoyed fishing and the paddle boat on the private lake. There's a number of hiking options, many within 30 minutes drive.

It's the perfect combination of a comfortable home, outdoor activities, and beautiful mountain setting.
