    Amazing location on the running creek

    Wake up to the sounds of a rushing creek right outside your window! The cabin is beautiful. Everything you need for a relaxing stay. Wi-Fi worked great. Just a couple of miles from cute little downtown Idaho Springs and a grocery store. Our 16 year old son caught two small brown trout from the creek. We had a great time!

    Cabin on a creek in the mountains. Perfect!

    We chose this cabin due to it's close proximity to a wedding we were attending at Blackstone River Ranch. So glad we did! Really a charming cabin on a great site and easy to get to location. The cabin was actually larger than I expected. Very cozy. Very clean (big points for me), well stocked with kitchen amenities, etc. We enjoyed the sitting area over the creek a lot, had it not been for a rainy weekend, we would have been out there the whole time. The hiking trail behind the cabin has some unexpected surprises along the way...really fun. We would definitely come back here again. Thanks to the owners for sharing this beautiful place!

    Our family had a great time at this cabin. The beds were very comfortable. We didn’t have any issues with a good nights rest after exploring the surrounding areas of Mt Evans, Idaho Springs and Georgetown. My newly adopted kids spent 3 yrs in foster care and this was their first vacation to another state. I’m so glad we chose Colorado and this beautiful cabin to bond as a family and make great memories.

    Everything in the listing were accurate. The property owners were very easy to work with. Located just a few minutes from town but we felt we had our own private space in the mountains.. Although we were close to many attractions there was not much need to leave the property.. Literally right out the front door is the creek and right out the back door are amazing trails to the top of the mountain. It took about 3 hrs to reach the top but worth every step. Also within 20 minutes is Mt Evans where we hiked and had lunch over looking Chicago lakes. The cabin was well appointed and stocked with everything we needed for our stay. There were just the two of us but we have already discussed bringing the kids next time.

    Awesome! Would definitely stay here again!

    Idaho springs was to receive 3 feet of snow after first day of check in. We had to cancel trip because we would of been stuck for 2 of the 5 days. Colorado transportation department said not to travel. Owner would not refund money our let us reschedule right away. We had to wait 2 weeks before he would give us a new date. He made us wait until he knew no one was going to book property. He told us if it booked, we could not have the days or get a refund. We had 9 people going and one week was not enough time for every one to make arrangements. 4 of us went. Owner should of automatically rebooked us but would not. Beware of weather cancellation rule in his agreement. Colorado had not seen snow like this in years. Owner should of been more flexible. We are VRBO owner premier partners as well and would of been more understanding with the situation than this owner was.

    This was my Christmas gift to my family (wife, daughter and son-in-law) to spend time in Colorado in the winter. The main bucket list item was checked off, when my wife and I went to Golden Horseshoe Sleigh Rides to enjoy a snowy ride in a one horse open sleigh. The cabin provided everything we needed for baking and cooking plus wood for the wood-burning stove.

    I can’t say enough good things about this cabin and the owners’ dedication to creating a genuinely rich experience. You literally open the door and have the sound of running water soothing the entire house. The owners provide all the modern amenities you’d have in the city, including good WiFi and DirectTV. The heat works great and although it was sub freezing out the cabin was so cozy we didn’t want to leave. This place is perfect, trust me, I have stayed at a lot of VRBO’s, this place tops it all. Also 5 minutes from the town of Idaho Springs that has all the shopping you will need. Book it!!!

    Cabin was great. The kitchen was fully furnished and provided all opportunities to cook and have groceries that we needed. The creek and sitting areas outside were so peaceful. Very little traffic on the road to interrupt anything. Cabin was well maintained and very cozy. Made a fire in the fireplace and it was just great. Can't say how much we enjoyed our time there.

    We will come back next year.

    Property and amenities were lovely. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was easy to find and close to attractions. The only 4 star was because there where dirty sheets in the washer and a basket of dirty towels that needed to be washed. We took care of this and put folded laundry on top of drier. Also none of the beds were made.

    My sister and friend and I were delighted to stay in this lovely cabin this past week. The setting is incredibly scenic with the creek and woods and rock formations all around the cabin, and it was right off the road leading into Idaho Springs. The cabin itself was lovely inside and out with decor and comfortable furnishings and all sorts of details throughout. The kitchen has plenty of utensils, so that was great. We so enjoyed the wood stove especially since there was an early snow. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend this place and hope to return again another time!

    Amazing!! Beautiful scenery, and the rushing creek along the front yard was our fave. We definitely over packed, as this cabin has everything you need for your stay!! We were looking for a cool quiet getaway from Covid and home; spent 4 days here and never left the property. If I had to mention one thing I wished for is there was not a single open cabinet in the kitchen to store all our dry good groceries we brought for our stay. You should leave one empty for that, just sayin :) Thank you, Randy!!

    We love, love, LOVED this cabin. It was so wonderful I almost don't want to write about how wonderful it was so that I can make sure it's available for me for future use next year! We will definitely be back. It has two separate bedrooms (one with a queen size bed and one with a king). The room with the king bed has an attached full bathroom and the one with the queen is right across the hall from the second full bathroom. Upstairs is a loft area with two twin (or maybe full - I can't remember) size beds. We spent the vast majority of our time out in front of the cabin at the little patio area right by the creek. We sat there all day, and then we sat there all night with a fire in the chiminea. The creek runs parallel to the road between the cabin and the road, but when you are sitting near the creek on the patio area, you can't hear ANY road noise or see the cars because the creek and sitting area are so much lower than the road. It feels EXTREMELY private. This is exactly the type of place we were hoping for as four childless adults trying to take a break from the world for a bit. It's only about a 5 minute drive from town, where there is a cute little downtown area, a few restaurants, a grocery store, a liquor store, and several dispensaries, so if you forget something, it's not a huge pain to go back and get it. The house is stocked with kitchen supplies and utensils, pots, pans, silverware, plates, cups, spices, etc. There were tons of towels and extra linens available and a full size washer and dryer with plenty of laundry detergent if you need to do a load mid-stay. Outside there was plenty of firewood available for fires in the chiminea on chilly evenings and on the back patio, there is a full size grill and a smaller one if you aren't cooking a lot. Behind the property is an awesome trail to walk partially up the mountain behind the property. I'm not sure how long it is but it got steep in a couple of places. The views along the way were fantastic! The only, and I mean ONLY con about the property is if you sleep with the windows open, in the morning you can hear quite a bit of road noise as cars drive by (it's off of a busy road). But, for me, that was a tiny price to pay for all of the other amazingness of the property. We will DEFINITELY stay here again if it is available the next time we come visit Idaho Springs. Remember to bring your own: - Lighter - Bugspray (the black flies bite!) - Food

    Clean, roomy, and beautiful! We spent days hiking to the most spectacular locations, and they were all within a few minutes drive of the cabin. The sitting area by the creek is just perfect! We loved every minute of our stay. We cooked most of our food, and the kitchen had all the utensils and cookware we needed. The whistling teapot was a fantastic surprise and really added such a cozy feeling to mornings listening to the creek outside our window. We are already recommending it to friends and family, and will be back again!

    What an adorable log cabin! It was perfect for our group from CA wanting to relax and have a day on the slopes. It appears rustic but it has EVERYTHING to make you comfortable.... there was a well stocked kitchen, comfy beds and even the good quality toilet paper! We thought it would be a fun game for kids to figure out how many decorations had fish or a moose on them. We’d love to stay again. The only disappointment was the traffic on the 70 during the ski weekends makes it well over an hour from the cabin to the ski resorts.

    What a great place! The owner was very quick to respond to any questions that I had before our stay. They had received snow the day of our arrival and the bridge and driveway had been plowed. The porch was completely cleaned of snow (this is a big deal when traveling with elderly). The cabin was very nice. Everything that we needed was available. I would recommend better lighting above the dinning room table. The chandelier was neat looking but didn’t give off any light. We would love to visit again in the summertime when we could enjoy the sitting area outside by the stream. Thanks for a great stay.

To have to pay a decent amount for a cleaning fee when we had to clean the moment we got there was really disappointing.

    This cabin is picture perfect! It had everything we needed. The location was absolutely ideal for what we had planned for this vacation. We attended a concert at red rocks, spent a day in Breckenridge, visited Rocky Mountain National Park, and took the most scenic drives up into the mountains every morning. This cabin is located a couple miles from the adorable town of Idaho Springs that has several great restaurants (we tried most of them), a grocery store, and cute shops. For people who want to spend time enjoying the scenery and the quiet mountain atmosphere instead of the Denver scene, this is perfect.

Would love to stay in the warmer months and take advantage of the outdoor trails and fire pit - would stay longer. Will stay here anytime we are looking for a place in the area! I do feel that between the booking fee and the cleaning fee, it was a little steep for only 2 people for 2 nights, but would be well-earned with 8 people or longer stays. Many choices for restaurants in Idaho Springs and would recommend BeauJo's!

It is rustic as a cabin should be, but not in an old feeling way. The owner was very easy to work with and quick to respond to any communication. The sheets, towels and dishes were all like new. It was easily accessible even in January and there was plenty of wood for the wood stove. The driveway provides ample parking. A great place that I’d go back to again and again.

It included everything we needed to cook, drink, and be merry. During our stay, we visited the nearby hot springs, walked through Red Rocks, hiked St. Mary's Glacier, and strolled the downtown streets. It was the best rental experience that we have had yet!

    Great cabin on a stream!

    It would be hard to compliment this place enough. Everything that we needed was there and we had a place to feel disconnected from the world. There is a highway on the other side of the creek, but you rarely notice it. We never felt like it pulled us away from the serenity of the woods and cabin feeling. There are a couple things that might bother others. The water pressure in one of the showers was a little weak. It wasn't unusable, just a little weak. Don't expect cell phone reception. What few times it shows that you have signal is just false hope. Don't expect amazing internet. There was enough to check email and do non-real time things, but games and remote control session will be painful with interruptions and slow speeds. Even with those things, we considered them a treat. It helped with keeping us disconnected and not wanting to spend time on devices. We enjoyed the hiking behind the house, sitting by the creek, and especially sleeping with the windows open and enjoying the natural sounds of the creek. Randy was fast to respond to any questions and made everything about the booking easy. We have since recommended this place to others. That should be enough of an endorsement. This place is wonderful!

This cabin is so beautiful and the master bedroom is huge and so very comfortable. You have everything you need and sitting by the creek in the morning and evenings is very relaxing. We even saw a beaver!! It is also private yet very close to the town of Idaho Springs, the highway and many other local attractions.

We spent a weekend in the cabin while on our way to Iceland and absolutely loved it. The trails starting behind the house where fabulous and great pass times.

    First, let me say the pictures on this site do not do this cabin and property justice. The cabin is beautiful inside and very spacious. It is tastefully decorated and is supplied with absolutely everything needed and then some. (Laundry soap, dish soap, paper towels, coffee/tea, shampoo/conditioner....the list goes on and on) The master bedroom and bathroom were the perfect size and our 8 year old LOVED having the huge loft all to herself. The front porch was the perfect spot to sit and watch the water when it rained and the key-less entry was a bonus because there were no keys/card to have to keep up with. My family came up from Denver for dinner and could not say enough about what a gem we had found. Second, the property. So wonderful! We slept with the bedroom windows open every night to hear the creek. There are several good places to fish from along the creek and while we saw fish in the water, my husband only had a few nibbles. The creek-side patio is perfect and I sat down there every morning to drink my tea and enjoy the creek and wildlife. Unfortunately, there was a fire ban while we were there so no evening fire in the chiminea. Quick drive to Idaho Springs and easy access to the rest of the mountains that I love and miss so much! Finally, communication with the owner was excellent. He sent reminders, tips and answered questions immediately. Every detail has been considered and we could not have asked for a better place to spend our Colorado vacation.

    We stayed at Arapaho Cliffs Log Cabin in June 2017. It is a great location to make frequent trips to Mt Evans. The mountain goats that frequent the 14,000 ft peak have kids this time of year and they are a delight to watch and photograph. The marmots and pikas are a plus for the nature lover and photographer. This cabin is wonderfully appointed but is close to the restaurants of Idaho Springs if you need them. The owner is great to work with and the cabin is highly recommended.
