About John & Olivia Taranto
My parents built this place back in 97/98. Was a great family retreat for years. Lots of great memories in the home. I purchased it from them a few years ago to keep it in the family.
John & Olivia Taranto purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why John & Olivia Taranto chose Collbran
Authentic Log Home, perfect location for multiple outdoor activities. Any season, this is the place to be. My favorite time is the Fall where the Aspens are absolutely breathtaking. the views around Vega State Park are amazing and makes for an unforgettable trip. Be sure to bring a camera. Wildlife frequent the cabin, passing through and sometimes stopping for a rest. Deer are frequent, Marmots and Chipmunks are permanent residents on the property. Hummingbirds are plentiful and make for an enjoyable show when feeding. As for Hunting and Fishing, you can hardly find a better location. Vega Reservoir or the lakes on the Mesa, the fishing is great. As for Hunting, there are plentiful Elk and Mule Deer both at the State Park and on the Mesa.

Great stay, secluded location, great views, well built log home
The log home is as depicted in the pictures and in the previous reviews there are a few issues that the property owners are aware of but that did not inhibit our stay - gas smell, moth ball smell, lots of cobwebs on the logs of the home outside, broken picnic table, etc. Again, this did not impact our stay and you are in the woods in a log cabin so should expect some measure of rustic. The cabin is very well built and laid out great for family time. The wood burning stove is fantastic and heated the entire home during the cold snap while we were there. Well stocked kitchen with the essentials. Would suggest a new auto coffee pot & some new linens but small nit and made the suggestions to the owner.
Thank you for your review. We weren’t able to go up to the cabin for a deep clean and restocking this year due to my husband’s shoulder surgery. We will definitely get a new coffee maker and restock the cabin before we open up the next season. We appreciate your input and review.
This was the fifth annual family reunion at Vega res, second at the cabin, it beats the campgrounds and lodge cabins there at the lake. We really enjoy the privacy and space you have on that mountain lot overlooking the lake. Our family will be back again next year.
This cabin is located in an absolutely gorgeous area by Vega State Park. It is secluded from the neighbors but close to the main road.
We are a Family of 8, which 4 are adult children. We had everything available for us to make the stay amazing. The unexpected Snow storm at the ending of May was definitely something to remember since we are from Hawaii and have not really had to drive in those conditions. Olivia was a Amazing host!! We are looking forward to our next stay. Thank you so much!!!
Great place to stay out away from it all
The only complaint we have is the oil and gas smell that never really goes away. I don't think we could have stayed if it had been cold out. Needed lots of fresh air. It would also be nice to not have to take our trash with us. Otherwise it was beautiful and comfortable. Perfect for a long weekend. Thank you!
Weekend Get Away
This was a great little get away for the 3 of us. We even got rain.
Located overlooking Vega State Park, minutes away from the park and all it's activities. Great fishing at Vega Lake. Easy access to the Grand Mesa for snowmobiling, ATV Trails, Hiking, mountain biking. Excellent area for Hunting and Fishing.
