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.

Autumn at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect fall getaway for our family. The house was wonderful and had everything we needed to be comfortable. Easy to get to great hiking area at top of road. The aspen fall color was framed in every window, including the bedroom. Amazing views driving to and from the house. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone who wants the true mountain experience with all the creature comforts.

Amazing hideaway for a Colorado getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We live in Colorado Springs and had guests visiting from the midwest. This cabin up in the woods was the perfect spot to experience what an amazing place Colorado is. We couldn't have asked for more cozy cabin with classic Colorado "homeyness." Surrounding by a forest of Aspens and great drive up we got everything we where expecting.

A Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful and in a beautiful outer-Leadville location. Some might be frustrated with no cell service, TV, or high-speed WiFi; but none of that is needed here. Enjoy the aspens and the mountains. Relax.

Lovely Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a lovely place to stay! It was clean and we loved the view out the upstairs window! It is an awesome drive over the Independence pass and the Turquoise Lake is a beautiful place to picnic, fish or hike. We would certainly choose to stay here again, if we ever return to this part of Colorado!

Beautifully appointed & relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed for our weekend family mountain biking getaway. All the finishes and fixtures are simple, elegant, and so thoughtfully done. Beds are comfortable, the interior wood is beautiful, and the radiant heated floors are a great touch. Thank you for providing WiFi but not tv's, radios, etc. - we LOVED having a few days without screens! We will absolutely return!

Really cool place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this cabin in the Aspens. It is very carefully crafted and unique. The cabin was equipped quite nicely and the views from all around inside the cabin are amazing! It's really private and quiet and we just thought we would miss not having a TV, but never gave it a second thought. There are lots of things to do in Leadville. We recommend taking the Mine driving tour, walking the town and checking out Turquoise lake. We took the hike at the lake called Timberline Lake. It goes 4.5 miles round trip and takes you to a beautiful little lake even higher in the mountains. It's got a pretty good slope uphill so get in shape before you come, otherwise, it's pretty easy. Thank you, Dan, for sharing your place with us. Perhaps we can return sometime.
