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!

About Marlis Wadleigh


We, Marlis & Matt (or as our friends and family call us: M & M) – are originally from San Diego, California. We moved to Evergreen nine years ago to experience first-hand all the wonderful things we continuously heard about Colorado.

We fell in love!

Our vision for The Fox Den was/is to create a magical mountain getaway for our guests to experience what we have fallen in love with – the Colorado lifestyle, beauty and majestic mountains.

We are very involved in the Evergreen community and quite knowledgeable about the surrounding areas, so please do not hesitate to reach out to us with additional questions. We will try everything we can to make your stay a memorable Colorado vacation.

Thank you and we hope to meet you soon!

The breathtaking, beautiful , and lovely view of the mountains and sunrise was amazing. We thanked M &M for their hospitality , and for providing such an nice and cozy place for us. Everything in evergreen was amazing. We walked by downtown, walked some trails, went to several museums. The whole time we looked at the mountains while we drove. The scenic view was beautiful. The last day it snowed and the view of the cabin was gorgeous. Everything white and clean made everything look like a different place. Overall it was amazing, we cannot wait to come back again and go skiing.

We stayed at the Fox Den for our ten year anniversary trip, and it exceeded our expectations in every possible way. Both the Fox Den itself and the town of Evergreen were absolutely beautiful. Marlis was a phenomenal hostess; she provided detailed binders about local attractions/restaurants/hikes/etc, maintained a completely stylish and CLEAN rental, and welcomed us sincerely and warmly. The town of Evergreen is a great location for all things outdoorsy. Whether we were interested in staying local to hike or play at the lake, or to visit nearby attractions like Mt. Evans or the Red Rocks, we had access to a wide range of activities. If we could pull ourselves away from the hot tub and hammock, that is...

As we road-tripped out to Evergreen, we stayed in luxury locations along the way. None of them even came close to having the thoughtfulness, hospitality, and overall charm of the Fox Den. We had never before done a vrbo-style stay but if they always prove to be such a positive experience, we'll never travel any other way.

Another peaceful stay in the beatiful Fox Den!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Fox Den in less than a year and it really feels like a home away from home. Marlis & Matt are so gracious and accommodating....perfect hosts! The peaceful location of the Fox Den and the constant visits by local wildlife provide for a truly relaxing, stress-free getaway...and the hot tub certainly helps too! The beautiful cabin has all of the modern-day comforts of home, and yet one gets to experience a back-to-nature feeling. The town of Evergreen has many gift shops, restaurants & bars...and even some new local breweries that we visited. And just a couple of miles down the road from the cabin is the Historic Brook Forest Inn, which has great food, drinks, and occasional live music! (We experienced all three!) All in all, another great week at the Fox Den and Evergreen CO!
