About the Property

1,100 sq ft. cabin, 2 bedroom+ queen size air mattress. 1 full bath. Sleeps 2-5

Welcome to “Happy Daze” Come and stay at our super clean, cozy, funky, groovy “Blast from the Past” mountain cabin. We have enjoyed owning the original homestead and have carefully decorated it with a period-correct flair for the nostalgic feel of Grandma’s house with a little bit o’ funkiness. Of course we do have a few of the modern conveniences such as microwave, wi-fi and big screen HD ROKU TV.

A comfortable base from which to plan and enjoy your days, doing all that the Colorado Rocky Mountains has to offer. We are close enough to everything yet far enough to be away from it all.

We are located in Westcreek, CO which is between Woodland Park and Deckers. A short walk into the Pike National Forest yields natural beauty and solitude that you will not believe! Just a “sweet little slice of heaven”. Take a beautiful, quiet nature walk along the creek and view various beaver dams and wildlife like eagles, deer, elk, rabbits, fox, chipmunks and in the summer- Oh the hummingbirds. So much fun to watch! Across the road on 30 acre ranch you just might see the golden eagles and bald eagles that hunt the property.

Sit, relax and enjoy reading a book on the Sun Porch, or enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the original 1963 Rock-ola Jukebox, fully stocked with all your favorites from yesteryear.

Take a leisurely nature walk or a vigorous hike on one of the many trails close by – Bell Rock, Thunder Butte and Sheep Nose are favorites, and range from easy to challenging.

PERFECT PLACE for ATVs, JEEPING, FOUR WHEELING or MOUNTAIN BIKING, with miles and miles of marked trails for riding just down the road. Open roads and single tracks for more advanced riders. Perfect day trip down Hackett Gulch or Metberry Gulch to the South Platte River. Local business can deliver and pick up rental ATVs for your enjoyment, or bring your own. Plenty of parking for your vehicles, trailers etc. We have maps at property of the riding trails.

After a long day, grill up that steak and enjoy your evening on the furnished patio or have some smore's around the Rock fire pit.

There is a large shaded dog run for your furry friends in backyard.

Plenty of games and DVDs

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Jerry and Rhonda are both native to Colorado. We purchase another home in the area over 15 years ago and used it as our 'Get Away'. After the kids left the nest we sold our home in Denver and moved to Westcreek to live out our dream, permanently. We have 3 grown children who got to grow up enjoying this area and have created memories for a lifetime here.

Why the Owner Chose Sedalia, CO, USA:
Entering the house for the first time, Jerry and I both just fell in love. It has a quality of nostalgia that influenced our decorating, and the fun we have had redecorating, antiquing and just playing, shows in every room. We live right down the road, so are available for questions or suggestions. We look forward to meeting you!
