About the property

Fantastic Cabin for a Mountain Getaway, Great For Families, Near Fishing!

For a serene mountain getaway, you cannot beat the Lazy Bear cabin, situated on more than an acre, located 15 miles from the town of Basalt, above the Frying Pan River and Ruedi Reservoir! This newly constructed, comfortably furnished three story custom cabin will steal your heart with its special artistic touches, unique master bedroom loft, oversized windows and wrap around decks.

Though this home doesn't have air conditioning, it has ceiling and floor fans for your use.

The newly furnished living room with scenic windows overlooking an Aspen grove, is a welcoming space to gather with friends and family. Kick back and relax near the crackling wood burning stove, or step out onto the wrap around decks, and immerse yourself in the tranquil beauty of the White River National Forest, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

During winter months, four wheel drive or all wheel drive vehicles are a must, due to unpaved and steep mountain roads. Due to the location of the cabin, there is no wifi or cell phone coverage.

The unique log staircase leading to the master bedroom loft is adorned with beautiful newel post wildlife carvings. At the foot of a king sized bed with a memory foam mattress sits a claw foot bathtub. The spacious lower level, with radiant in floor heat, has two comfortable bedrooms and a queen sleeper sofa in the family room. The fully equipped kitchen contains everything needed to prepare a great meal,

Within a 25 minute drive you are in the historic, quaint town of Basalt with its unique shops, bars and great restaurants. If you prefer to eat in, groceries can be purchased at Whole Foods or local grocery stores, within a short 10 minute drive from downtown Basalt.

Great Getaway Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Very nice cabin! Only concern was the cleanliness, as though it had not been cleaned completely after the last guests. Also there was a lack of cooking utensils. Our group was running the Aspen trail race on Saturday so we ate all our meals at the cabin. The deck was wonderful! Thanks.

Owner's Response: Ron, thank you for the nice review! I'm so glad you enjoyed you stay at the cabin! The setting really is amazing so it's so nice to know that you were able to spend time cooking meals and enjoying the deck. I appreciate your feedback about the cooking utensils so that we can look into this and provide what is lacking. I apologize that it wasn't as clean as it should have been and we will discuss this with our cleaner to ensure this doesn't happen again. We hope that you will come stay with us again soon!
