About the property

Classic Secluded Mountain Cabin. In the aspens!

This is an almost new custom cabin in a beautiful aspen forest. The Beaver Lakes Estates' privately plowed road leads five miles off the highway to this quiet, sunny, mountain home. The heated floors will warm your toes and the woodland wildlife will warm your heart. You may depart for above tree line wilderness right from the front door on foot, x/c skis. bike, or snowmobile depending on the season. The cabin is only 15 minutes from the edge of Historic Leadville and Arkansas River fly fishing, and only half an hour to Ski Cooper and the Mt. Elbert trailhead. No fishing in Beaver Lakes.

Perfect get-a-way location.

I almost didn't write a review because I wanted to keep this place a secret. Great mountain location for peace & quiet. Trails right out the door for hiking or trail running. Highly recommend.

My 55th Birthday get away with family

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is gorgeous, everything I hoped for. Dan is an amazing artisan, I could tell he really put his heart, soul, and craftsmanship into this beautiful place. From the stone shower, the copper sinks, the beautiful wood, and his personal touches made this an inviting and relaxing get away. Dan responded to my emails and answered questions in an exceptional time frame, with a twist of humor, that I loved. He gave spot on directions. The additional space was very well done and quite comfy for my guests, and can be closed off for privacy if you choose. Our 2 dogs truly enjoyed the adventure, thank you ever so much for allowing them to experience this amazing get away with me. Was a bonus to meet Dan as we were packing up, what a generous and humble man. I am very grateful for him sharing this quaint place with me. We created wonderful memories that will stay with me for a life time. Blessings, I will return again!

Unique Rustic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a unique and inviting cabin Dan has built, nestled in a great quiet location. One of my favorite features was the view of Mt Elbert through the aspen trees, from the living room window.
