About the property

5 Acre Peaceful Mountain Cabin Retreat 3 Bedroom Sleeps 6

Sheltered by tall pines on the mountains of the Front Range, this secluded family-friendly mountain cabin is located just an hour’s drive from Denver and an hour and a half from Colorado Springs making it the perfect weekend getaway for guests looking to relax in a cozy cabin in the Colorado wilderness.

Based in the town of Bailey in Park County, the cabin features a rustic wood panel exterior and an elevated deck while the interior is stylish and comfortable with plenty of space for a family with young kids. It sleeps six guests in total with the master bedroom coming with a queen-size bed and two bedrooms coming with a set of bunk beds each. The master bedroom features bedside tables with reading lamps and elegant furnishings while the bunk rooms are bright and colorful with lots of toys for kids. Guest have access to two bathrooms that each come with a toilet and a hand basin while the main bathroom also comes with a shower.

The living room is a wonderful spot for gathering the family around the wood-burning fireplace and sitting back on the soft leather sofas. There is an HD TV with a selection of DVDs as well as a variety of board games so guests can enjoy entertaining family nights in. There is a dining table for six in the same room as well as a fully equipped kitchen that has a stove, oven, microwave, and a refrigerator as well as a range of cooking utensils.

Outside, guests may be able to catch a glimpse of deer and elk roaming through the forest as they relax on the elevated deck. There is also an outdoor barbecue grill and a fire pit allowing guests to experience the thrill of a camping adventure while knowing their cozy beds are just inside.

We hope you will love staying here as much as we do. Great for families or couples that want to reconnect with nature to recharge and renew their relationships.

Due to the remote location of the cabin, the cell service can be spotty depending on your service provider. We are about 90 minutes from the nearest ski resort.

Thank you for welcoming us in your perfect house. We loved every minute of staying here - the morning breakfast outside, the chats by the fire, and game of monopoly late into the night. Your place is a great getaway home!

My husband and I, from LA., met our daughter and her family, from MT. for Christmas! We had a white Christmas! No wifi, very little cell service and it was great! Played board games! Kid friendly! The owners were so nice and helpful! Awesome place!

Amazingly serene!

  • 5 of 5

The pics don't do it justice! So cozy❤️ The cell/internet service is spotty but that's what we loved about it. It was so nice that everyone was actually looking up and talking to each other. I haven't felt that stress free in a long time! Being able to lookout the large windows and watch the deer or stand on the deck and take in a deep breath of fresh cool air was truly satisfying. I would recommend this place to everyone and stay there again myself. 😊

Peaceful and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 4 days on this property with our family of 4! My oldest daughter is 5 she loved the bunk beds and the Barbie Castle. It was fully furnished and so peaceful and relaxing for our family. We grilled out each day and enjoyed hiking, walks and the beautiful wildlife. Great Experience!

Perfect way to get away from the noice

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great experience in this cabin. Couldn't have asked for a better setup. My group had 3 adults and one child. We had extra room and space. We could have easily fit another two couples in the cabin and still be comfortable. The pictures don't give justice to the space you have inside and out. Beautiful natural areas outside. We were greeted by a deer when we first arrived and a couple other deer each morning. Neighbors are far enough that you won't be bothered. One house has chickens/roosters that do their noice. But we were never woken up once by them. Either they are far enough and have plenty of trees to drown out the noice that we couldn't hear them too early or they just waited until 8 or 9 am to make some noice.

There is not enough time to explain all the positives. Everything about this home rental was great. Only negative thing that some electronic device addicts might find is that there isn't WiFi here. We came here with a hope to get away from that anyway so it was a plus for us (gets rid of temptation). They provided enough books, movies, and board games to entertain any sized group.

The host was extremely hospitable. They provide most things needed to enjoy your seclusion. They were very good at taking care of any issues that came up (which nothing major did). They were flexible and even allowed us to check in a few hours early. The cabin is a 10-15 minutes drive from big grocery stores and other dinning venues. It is 45 minutes from Denver. There was so many options for us to do within an hour drive from here that we wished we had more time to stay. The cabin is in a perfect location to get in some city experiences and also explore some of the best things nature has to offer in the area. We will definitely try coming back to this same home.

Very peaceful mountain cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Cathy and James play excellent hosts for this beautiful mountain cabin. It's located in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood. The five acres is perfect sized for exploring and bird watching. I really enjoyed drinking morning coffee on the deck while watching the hummingbirds lick sap from the tree trunks with occasional nuthatch stopping by to say hi. We also loved coming back to the cabin after a full day hike and lounge in the hammocks listening the distant calls of crows and ravens with occasional cicada flying by: very peaceful.

Our group did get to meet the deer that hangs around the cabin a few times and we even saw a black bear walk through the property!

If you're looking for a quiet peaceful get-away with beautiful scenery, this is the cabin for you!
