Check Availability & Make Reservations

This rustic mountain paradise is cozy, very private and loaded with charm. Nestled in the shadows of Profile Rock, it’s within healing distance of the rushing Poudre – a wild waterway that starts as a trickle in the snow melt above timberline and tumbles down the canyon with drama and beauty.

The river is only a stone’s throw away down the hill and there are more than 100 yards of private riverfront to explore. The trout are challenging but can be coaxed onto your line, or you can sit on a large rock at river’s edge and reach deep inside to unravel issues that need to flow downstream.

Remnants of the cabin’s humble past are visible everywhere. A favorite is the massive relic of a stove in the kitchen—part wood-burning (to warm away chills), and part electric (to cook up a delicious breakfast on the other side). An old-fashioned electric percolator brews a fine cup of coffee after you light the match to start the stove fire; then you can sit back and watch for the flutter of hummingbirds dropping by for an early-morning sip.

A screened wrap-around porch comes with two iron beds so you can breathe in the scent of pine and let the sound of the river rush you to sleep. During the day you can chat on the porch swing or recline with a book on the love seat. Evenings you can linger long after dinner around a candle-lit porch table for eight, sipping wine and trying to remember what you were so stressed about before you came.

Halfway down to the river is a playhouse your children will love (adults have also been known to escape there for a midday snooze). Complete with bunk beds, toys and a deck furnished with child-sized table, it's perfect for tea parties and hours of play. Another thing the children will love is the elevated train track in the main cabin that circumnavigates the kitchen and detours into the living room.

Everyone loves the nearby hikes – up the road to Roaring Creek and South Fork trails or further up to Lake Agnes, American Lakes, the Crags and Cameron Pass. Moose are often spotted on these high-altitude climbs and you can see Rocky Mountain National Park from the highest point above American Lakes.

This isn’t Aspen living. It’s more like camping without the cold hard ground. The 1-1/2 bathrooms are pretty basic, but they do the job. One has a shower stall. Not a granite counter type of place, to be sure, but wonderful just the same.

There’s a saying that goes “The outside of a horse is the best thing for the inside of a man”. This cabin really does do something for the inside of a person. Each time anyone visits, they can’t wait to come back. Just ask any of the family members and friends who have enjoyed it for more than 50 years.

Note: This cabin works best with 7 or less people. It can hold more but then it starts feeling cramped. It will sleep 8 or 9.

Note: Over holiday weekends such as Memorial, 4th of July and Labor Day weekends, we request a 4 day minimum. Thank you.
