3Bd/2Ba Cabin with Stunning Mountain Views

365 degrees of the best, most breathtaking mountain views await you at the Bobcat Cabin. Sitting atop 3.5 acres in Indian Mountain, the cabin is +/-90 minutes from Denver off of US HWY 285 in Jefferson, Colorado.

Our 3BD/2BA cabin will comfortably sleep 6-8 adults. In the master bedroom awaits a king-size bed with an ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom sleeps a queen-size bed and is located across from the third bedroom with a full-size bed. There is a loft on the second floor with a queen-size pullout with Tempurpedic topper. The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining, while the bedrooms are comfortably tucked off of the main area.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern amenities, including a gas grill located on the southeast facing deck, perfect to dine outdoors. Additionally, there is a large, northwest facing deck to enjoy the amazing sunsets over the Mosquito Range.

If you would like to stay for more than a week, a discount will be applied!

You can simply enjoy the quiet and serenity of the mountain getaway, or engage in any of the incredible local activities:

Fishing: Check out Tarryall Fly Guides in Fairplay, CO. They will set you up with a guided service, and any of your fishing fishing needs. Pick up a license there or in Jefferson. Tarryall Reservoir and Jefferson Lake are great spots to take in the views, see a waterfall, and cast your line. Spinney and Eleven Mile Reservoirs offer incredible fishing on the lakes or on the Dream Stream that connects them. Note: Antero is closed until 2018. If you’re looking for close guaranteed action beyond the public access of the South Platte, Blue, and Arkansas Rivers, there are private fishing stretches available nearby for daily rod fees.

Fitness: The Fairplay Rec Center is 20 minutes away and has a year round indoor zero-entry and lap pool, a full work-out facility, exercise classes, a skate park, BMX course and a sauna shaped like a cask! Day use fee applies.

Hiking: Hiking is abundant! The famous Colorado Trail hike goes through near-by Kenosha Pass. You can also hike the roads around the property and take in some fabulous views and fresh mountain air at any time of the day. There are forest service roads connecting many forested areas that can be hiked as well.

Horseback Riding: 15 minutes from the cabin is the American Safari Ranch. They offer open range and forest riding, plus a BBQ lunch for a modest fee.

Hunting: There is an abundance of public access in the area for big game hunting. No hunting is allowed around the cabin, but use the cabin as basecamp.

Mountain biking: Several mountain biking trails run through Lost Lake Forest, and the roads through Indian Mountain provide some challenging ascents or circuits. The Colorado Trail from Kenosha Pass to the Lost Creek Wilderness and Kenosha Pass down to Jefferson Creek and up to Georgia Pass are some of the best riding trails in Colorado.

River Rafting: 60 minutes from the property you will find Buena Vista and the Arkansas River, some of the best in Colorado. As well, the Royal Gorge is 90 minutes the other direction.

Skiing: 50 minutes from the cabin you will find yourself at the Gondola lot of Breckenridge, 65 minutes you will be at the base of Keystone. Monarch Mountain is a smaller, more local mountain approx. 2 hours away. If you are feeling adventurous, there is some epic back-country skiing to be had in the area, as well as cross-country skiing. Bring your beacon!

Snowmobiling: There are plenty of access sites in the area.

4x4: There is an abundance of 4x4 roads if you want to stretch your vehicle’s legs.

Boreas Pass from Como to Breckenridge is open in the summer and a fun look into the old mining and rail ways. Forest service roads abound that have varying conditions based on the season.

14ers and Hot Springs: You are 1 hour from Buena Vista where you can find the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs and Collegiate Peak 14ers.

Neighborhood Amenities: If you would like to take advantage of some of the amenities that Indian Mountain offers, there is Pasture Golf (clubs provided), Frisbee Golf on an awesome and challenging mountain course (there are discs at the property and on the course for your use), as well as an archery and shooting range. There is also a playground for the kids.

Wet your whistle and dance it out at the Stagestop Saloon – likely the closest watering hole. Our favorite is the South Park Brewery and Tap Room, great beer, food and views, and super kid-friendly!

If you are interested in some of the mining history of Park County, Como and SouthPark

in Fairplay are educational and fun to see into the old ways of the area. Visit Old Town in Fairplay, a collection of buildings from the 1800s.

Secluded, warm, well equipped and beautiful cabin. Enjoyed our Christmas.

  • 5 of 5

The views are the top feature of the cabin. We were lucky to have snow, so we went walking around the neighborhood..with a sleigh and enjoyed so much. We also made a snowman (Zato) who stayed after us. Cabin is very well equipped with everything you may need and more. It has a stove which we used to warm up at night. Great second floor for kids to entertain. This is a great place to have a secluded and beautiful winter getaway.

Perfect family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect. It was late fall, and the long light lit the vast grassland hills perfectly, and the house is atop one of those hills, amid an aspen forest. Everyone always looks to the famous Breckenridge, Vail, Aspen, Crested Butte, etc., for getaways, but this is a perfect location off the beaten path, especially for Colorado natives!

General notes:

1. Extremely family friendly - the upstairs loft is set up perfectly for kids of ANY age to play. The kitchen is stocked with complete toddler-ready plates, cups, forks, sippy cups, etc.!

2. The carpet could be replaced if you're looking for a glossy, polished aesthetic. We were not.

3. The linens are clearly home-owned, and I love the mis-matched style, as though a family actually owns this property, instead of a hotel management consortium.

4. The kitchen is WELL stocked. We could make anything.

5. The wood-stove is new and functions perfectly.

6. The forest is perfect for young kids to explore and play.

7. The beds are comfortable, ample bedclothes available.

8. The window sills and blinds need to be deep cleaned more regularly, the accumulation of dead bugs was a little much.

9. There are notes everywhere kindly instructing us what to do - thank you!

10. The coffee machine must be replaced - the pot we made had an overwhelming rank of mold.

11. The fridge is spotless and clean.

12. The heating system, while using a modern Nest thermostat, is tricky to finesse - it gauges temperature based on the main living area, which is heated by the fire (in the fall/winter), but then the auxiliary bedrooms don't get heat at all - they were frigid. To get the bedrooms up to heat, the thermostat was set to constant heat, which backfired on us by mid-night.

13. Jenny was nearly instant to respond to our needs, and the instructions provided by her and VRBO made this a no-nonsense trip.

This place created a lasting memory, and was perfect for inviting my whole family to come, unwind, explore, and celebrate the holiday together. It hope we can repeat it at least on an annual basis.
