Charming Log Cabin w/Hot Tub, Deck, Ping Pong, Wifi

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This super charming and authentic yet plush/modernized Log Cabin is located right in the town of Winter Park! It sits on the mountain side, and there is a ski shuttle pickup stop right at the end of the driveway.

The cabin is fully furnished and feels cozy yet at the same time spacious and inviting. The wood logs and chinking look great, and it's very cool and campy, but has modern conveniences including free WIFI, 40' Sony Bravia with BluRay disc player, Cable, a very private outdoor hot tub with 6' privacy fence, gas fireplace, washer and dryer (Eco-Ellie Detergent included), dishwasher, all kitchen cooking accessories, and linens. Plus, we just completed a brand new OUTDOOR DECK on the back of the house offering a wonderful outdoor relaxation spot. We have a large Aspen grove behind the house and the deck offers a very peaceful and relaxing place to enjoy the trees, fresh air and unobstructed views of the mountain. The deck flows into the hot tub and bbq patio area so you'll have plenty of privacy. We used a composite flooring material for the deck so no splinters/kid friendly!

The main floor/living room area is open and spacious. Great for playing board games in front of the fire, watching movies on the big screen, hanging out and reading. We recently updated the living room with brand new cabin-style leather sofas (full and loveseat size) for added style and comfort. The bedrooms are upstairs and include a Master bedroom with queen bed, and a guest/kids room with wood bunk bed, plus a double bed. There is an additional stow-able queen size mattress available on the main level for added sleeping options. The sunny and warm game room downstairs is just off the den and has a ping pong table (paddles and balls supplied). GREAT views from this room with the large windows facing the mountain. The sun/ping pong room leads to the outdoor porch which includes an outdoor gas barbecue and a professionally maintained outdoor hot tub kept private by a 6 foot slat wood privacy fence. Wonderful view of the night sky from the hot tub. Very relaxing, quiet, private and comfy and available year-round. This property is professionally managed/maintained and is very clean and well kept. In addition, we strive to be environmentally and eco-friendly and use cleaning products by Eco Ellie - a Boulder based company. This includes laundry detergent as well as basic cleaning supplies. These products work great and do not have the harsh chemicals such as bleach etc. Our cleaning folks use these eco/bio-friendly products exclusively for our cabin! There is also a train that passes through Winter Park; you can take the Amtrak right into town from Denver! The tracks are nearby, but not visible from the cabin. As of November 2011, the town of Winter Park will make certain the crossing at Vasquez Road is a quiet zone. This means the train conductors will not blow their whistle during the day/night except in the case of an emergency.

About Beki

My name is Beki, and and I am currently managing Bear Claw Cabin for the owner Scott. I live in Colorado Springs, but can answer any questions that you may have about the town or the ski mountain, or provide any assistance that you or your guests may need. We hope you will choose our cute and comfortable cabin for your next vacation getaway!

Beki purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Beki chose Winter Park Area

Scott purchased this cabin because it was unique and charming and offered a vintage cabin feel yet was updated and comfortable to hang out in. There's a ski shuttle stop at the end of the driveway with free pick ups. You can walk into the town of Winter Park with restaurants, coffee shops and retail stores within 10 minutes. We chose Winter Park because it's close to Denver (about 1.25 hours drive) and the affordable, down-to-earth, family-friendly Colorado mountain town vibe.

What makes this cabin unique

I love to come up to WP to enjoy the outdoor activities during the day; mountain biking and hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. It's great being able to come home and relax at the cabin at night playing cards, jumping in the hottub, cooking, watching movies, hanging out. We especially love playing ping pong during the day in the always warm/sunny game room.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Spent 4 nights during the last weeks of March 2013 and was absolutely pleased in every way with these accommodations.

Found the cabin clean and even more spacious than the pictures appeared.

The location is convenient to Winter Park and Frazier and we had no trouble navigating to where we needed to go.

A big Kudo's to Kaylee who was very helpful and pleasant to work with in setting everything up and answering many questions for me.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit. The house was cozy and a perfect place to relax after a day of skiing. The ping pong table got more use than I thought. Fun way to spend an evening. The bus at the end of the driveway was a huge plus. We are already talking about going back.

We loved the cabin. Went there with a group of ladies, and it was clean and cozy, we will definitely come back. The hot tub is wonderful and private. The home is very conveniently located, the bus to the mountain comes right there!

My only snipes on the place is that it wasn't well stocked. The kitchen is pretty minimal, we couldn't find a cutting board or hot pads. (If you plan on cooking, I recommend something easy like lasagna). We ran out of toilet paper, and there was none stocked that we could find. Also, the trash bin outside was full when we got there, so there was nowhere to put our trash or recycling. We had to pack that out. Otherwise, it was an overall pleasant experience.

The cabin didn't seem well taken care of.

  • 2 of 5

There was lots of old dog poop in the area by the hot tub, no body wash in the shower, the hair conditioner bottle was broken and would not dispense, no Kleenex in the cabin anywhere and the metal edging around the ping pong table was just hanging off. Most of the chairs on the deck were broken but it was pretty cold to sit outside anyway. I did write to the care takers about the issues and they apologized but I felt this warranted some refund which they did not offer. I won't be staying there again.

As pictured - great location and hot tub

  • 4 of 5

We just wrapped up a mid-season skiing trip and enjoyed staying at the cabin.

The good:

* Hot tub was well maintained and awesome after skiing

* Cabin was clean with plenty of towels

* Great common area for games/chilling

* Shuttle is super convenient

* Internet was solid

The meh:

* Very few kitchen staples basics available - not a gourmet kitchen (though it wasn't advertised as such).

* No music connection (one speaker with no auxiliary cable)

* A bit dated look and feel

Overall, it was a great location and pretty hard-to-beat private hot tub. Great value.

Awesome Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the cabin was awesome and as described on the website. It was very cute. Very close to the town and to the ski resort. The property owners were very helpful and quick to respond if we had an issue arise. We loved everything about the cabin, and would love to stay here again.
