The Fox Den - A Gorgeous Mountain Getaway In Beautiful Evergreen, Colorado

Space 675 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Peaceful Hot Tub & Mountain Views

‘The Fox Den’ is a beautiful upscale mountain retreat that will undoubtedly become your second home once you step foot inside.

Please feel free at anytime to contact the Owners with any and all questions you might have ... we are happy to help in anyway we can!

We Take Pride in an Environmentally Happy Cabin:

Non-Smoking – Recycling – Reduce – Reuse – Conserve

This cozy cabin is 59 miles by car from Denver International Airport and approximately 8 miles from downtown Evergreen. Renting a 4WD vehicle is essential from beginning of November to end of May. Evergreen sits at an elevation of 7,220 feet in the Rocky Mountains and the cabin sits at approximately 8,600 feet. The drive from Evergreen to the cabin is quite lovely with windy roads that show off the striking Colorado terrain. During this drive you will pass a gorgeous location ideal for day hikes … and further down the road a local restaurant/bar, which is very convenient after a day’s hike.

2WD or 4WD vehicles - the last 1/2 mile to The Fox Den you will be driving on a semi maintained mountain dirt road, so it can be quite bumpy.

Of course you will find all this information in the cabin once you arrive:

names of hikes & restaurants, directions, phone numbers, local information, interesting sites & current happenings in Evergreen and the surrounding areas, Skiing, 14ers (Fourteeners), etc, etc, etc.

As you approach ‘The Fox Den’ and enter the driveway … you will feel a sense of peace knowing you’re home.

‘The Fox Den’ is an A-frame style mountain cabin, which we completely renovated inside and out. With our love & passion … this project took 2 years to complete and we are very happy with the results!

The Fox Den is smoke free - NO smoking inside the cabin.

A large U shape deck surrounds the cabin with a relaxing hot tub on the right side of the cabin ... and a BBQ with seating/dining area on the left side of the cabin.

While sitting in the hot tub, on the decks or lying in the hammock - one is serenaded by the flowing creek below and the birds whistling in the trees.

The ground level includes –

The private Master bedroom, a bathroom, full kitchen, living room with gas stove, writer’s corner, and washer/dryer.

The loft includes –

A reading area with a selection of books, a TV area with a mountain style log couch, plus a spacious sunny deck with mountain views – perfect with a glass of wine & a book.

The amazing wildlife can be seen while you sit outside on the deck or through the window while cooking breakfast – fox, deer, a large variety of birds, hummingbirds, squirrels, etc. While you venture into Evergreen – it’s an everyday occurrence to see Elk roaming the streets, just hanging out in front of homes or in our parks. Keep an eye out for these gorgeous local residents of Evergreen!

Marlis & Matt (M & M - 'The Fox Den' Owners), take great pride in offering you a pristine & gorgeous mountain getaway home that is filled with (we believe) all the amenities necessary to create the perfect setting. We live in Evergreen, so we are always available if ever you need anything during your stay. Never hesitate to reach out to us – we are here to provide you a memorable Colorado vacation!

We are very excited to welcome you … and hope your stay at 'The Fox Den' is beyond your expectations.

Monthly rate: Please ask M & M (The Owners).

** Tree pollen ALLERGIES: usually from middle of June to first week of July **

Please let us know if you have any questions ...

Thank you and we hope to meet you soon!

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Fox Den for our honeymoon and what an amazing experience! This was our first time using HomeAway so I was alittle nervous. Marlis was so warm and inviting and the Fox Den was beautiful and so clean! The work M&M put into it, you can tell it was a labor of love. We had activities planned in Denver and such but honestly I could of just stayed there all week without leaving. It was so quiet and relaxing drinking coffee all morning on the Patio! Marlis you are amazing and thank you so much for everything!!!

As soon as I saw the pics and read the reviews (every one a 5 star), I was sold, but when I got there, I wished I could retire there ! It was everything I wanted to find on my first trip to Colorado. Adorable, private, peaceful, surrounded by nature and clean, clean, clean. Minimalism at its best and you can even feel the love in the empty spaces. If you want romantic - you got it. If you want "off the grid" - you got it. If you want to spend time AWAY - you got it. You also have lots of great hiking, restaurants, shops close by and owners so nice you want to be friends with them !!! I wanted to invite Marlis over for coffee !!! hahah ! The only thing I did not like was leaving. It is on my "must go back" list. I challenge you to go there and not feel the same. ENJOY.

From the moment we arrived, Marlis made us feel so at home! The Fox Den is so beautiful inside and out, every detail has been thought of with love and care, and so much more. Marlis gave me wonderful recommendations for dining and hikes, answered my every question before and during the stay, and made sure our weekend visit for my husband's 40th birthday was relaxing and memorable.

The Fox Den had everything we needed. A full kitchen, lovely views, and privacy. We enjoyed using the hot tub under the stars, reading in the Sunday sunshine on the balcony, and curling up with a cozy fire in the late evening. The sunrise each day was breathtaking and the sound of the stream in the distance so peaceful.

The Fox Den is easy distance to so much! We enjoyed the town of Evergreen. The bakery had yummy pastries, the Little Bear for fun food and music, we even had some ice cream while we took a beautiful walk around the lake. We hiked Maxwell Falls, drove to hike St. Mary's Glacier, did a exhilarating 2hr ATV ride in the mountains in Idaho Springs, and loved our brunch at The Brook Forest Inn. All in all, an absolutely perfect weekend made possible because of this amazing cabin and the most gracious and generous of hosts.

Thank you Marlis and Matt! We can't wait to come back again!

Beautiful Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at the Fox Den! Marlis and Matt showed such hospitality, greeting us as a snowstorm came into town, providing us with daily weather updates, advice about local points of interest and even shoveling our car out of the snow so that we could attend a concert as planned! The cabin is clean, cozy, and stocked with all the comforts of home. The views are beautiful in every direction through the windows and the ample patio space. We really enjoyed watching the deer roaming nearby and kept hoping for a fox to pop up. Seems like we will have to continue that pursuit on our next visit as we certainly plan to return as soon as possible! I would recommend this location to anybody!

Owner's Response: Hello! We are so thankful for your wonderful review & 5 star rating! Thank you! :-)) It was so very nice meeting you both and it thrills us that you had such a fabulous time! We're happy you were able to go to the concert and it sounds like it was great. Next time - Red Rocks! Yes, the foxes can be quite tricky and like to be out & about more at night ... but, they are too cute. Cross fingers you'll see them during your next visit. Thank you again! Hugs, M & M
