This authentic, rustic log cabin sits atop an apsen-covered ridge and enjoys sweeping views of Mt. Princeton and the Buffalo Peaks. The cabin was completely updated in 2010 with high-end amenities that still remain true to the rustic appeal. You will enjoy a beautiful wood burning fire place; reclaimed pine floors; expansive windows with gorgeous views; knotty alder kitchen cabinets with high-end appliances; two beautiful bathrooms with custom tile work and heated floors; comfortable, Ralph Lauren style furnishings; custom built-ins; free internet; a wrap-around deck; 4 acres to explore; and lots of privacy.
This place is a true get-away destination in the heart of Park County Colorado. From the comfort of this cozy cabin, you will enjoy quiet time for plenty of relaxation, book reading, cooking in the gourmet kitchen, outdoor exploration- and, yes, even working if you are so inclined. Not only will you love exploring the area and the views from the cabin, but you will also enjoy that it is centrally located and within 30-60 minutes of many Colorado sights and famous skiing and fishing areas.
The cabin is comfortable year-round- warm and cozy in the winters and cool in the summers. The summers are still and quiet, with lush green aspens and wildflowers, temperatures in the 70's, starry skies, and occasional thunderstorms. The fall changing of the aspens are spectacular and cast a golden glow over the whole property in September. The winters are beautiful and you can watch winter storms come up over the mountain ridges and pass through the valleys; snow accumulation is generally minimal. The springs are true Colorado fashion with warm sun one hour and dramatic snow showers the next- quite an awesome sight to witness.
The cabin has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a loft area, perfect for playing or accommodating sleeping bags. It has all of the comforts of home and the supplies you will need to enjoy your stay, including: satellite tv, high speed internet, dvd player and movies, board games and puzzles, toys for young children, linens and paper goods, kitchen supplies, popcorn machine, washer and dryer, gas grill, and fire pit.
