This cozy 672 sq. ft. 2-bedroom cottage (sleeps 6 -- 2 queens, 2 twins) in beautiful Jefferson, Colorado, is halfway between Bailey and Fairplay and just minutes away from fishing at Tarryall Reservoir.

A 90-minute drive from west Denver, this cute cabin is nestled on 4 private acres and is located just one mile from Hwy 77 and Stagestop Road in a very secluded and quiet neighborhood surrounded by meadows, pine and aspen trees. In addition, the cabin is less than 5 minutes away from national forest -- so bring your ATVs!

This private cottage, which is furnished, highlights the following:

** Sweeping views of southern and western mountain ranges including Mt. Baldy and Mt. Princeton

** Full size refrigerator, stove/oven, auto coffee maker, toaster oven, and blender (but no microwave!)

** Blackout shades in both bedrooms

** 4 Beds

   --> Queen bed in master bedroom

   --> Queen bed (under twin bunk) and twin antique bed in guest bedroom. Note that the person/child sleeping on upper bunk should weigh no more than 110 pounds.

** New bathroom fixtures -- the sink is homemade and quite rustic, but works for brushing teeth! Water is EXTREMELY limited, so be sure to bring your own water to brush teeth, wash dishes, etc. in the kitchen sink... sometimes, it runs out!

** Wrap-around deck with propane BBQ for grilling steaks, kabobs and brats!

** 4 chairs and round iron table on deck to enjoy outdoor evenings, sunsets and sunrises! Two camp chairs in case you have more than 4 campers.

** 2 Lounge chairs for sunbathing and relaxing

 ** Vintage wood stove for cozy heat (bring wood or feel free to gather dead, dry wood and sticks from property)

** Private entrance and driveway

Pricing is currently set to BRING YOUR OWN LINENS -- sheets, sleeping bags, pillows, bath and kitchen towels, but if you want us to supply linens, contact me first, as we have to follow COVID guidelines.

NOTE -- this cabin, while updated and very comfy, is "rustic" in terms that it does not have WIFI and you'll need to bring your own water to drink. Also, reliable cell phone reception is not guaranteed. Verizon seems to work fine... from the deck!

Some house rules to note before you rent: No smoking (fire danger!), no drugs, no cats. Two dogs are allowed -- but please make sure they are safe -- we have bears and bobcats!

If star-gazing isn't your thing, bring your own DVDs to watch on the HDTV and lounge on the comfy loveseat and chairs.

We will provide hand sanitizer and/or soap and water that is easily accessible to guests upon arrival and during their stay.

What a great place! Perfect location. Easy to access multiple trails and an easy drive to Breckenridge for a quick day trip. Porch was perfect for hanging out, what an amazing view. Beds were comfy. Wood burning stove with plenty of wood supplied for those chilly mornings. I wanted a place to come for a few days to get away from Denver and this place was perfect. I will be back!

Second trip up here. Just as good as the first time. Had one chilly day so I used the wood burning stove. It made the cabin nice and toasty. Great deck to watch the sunset.

The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. It was cozy with all the amenities to make our stay comfortable yet far enough away that we could feel like we were escaping the city. The drive up to the cabin is absolutely beautiful and the fresh air and sweeping views from the front porch make this place a real gem. The place served as a great home base for mountain biking and hiking at Kenosha pass. We only wished that we had brought our fishing poles!
We had so much fun cooking dinner and playing games, then heading down to the Saloon for a drink. We will definitely be back. I can only imagine how beautiful it will be in the fall when all the Aspens have turned. Can't wait for our next visit!

Exploring the area on our bikes. The rock formations were awesome! The aspens provided the perfect shade to relax in my hammock

Marilee's cabin in the mountains was the perfect weekend getaway! The cabin was supplied with all necessary amenities and made for a relaxing retreat. The location was perfect, being somewhat secluded on a beautiful mountain top. The sunrises and sunsets could be easily seen from the cabin's porch. Many hiking and outdoor options just a short drive away for when the weather was nice. The cabin had an outdoor fire pit and was stocked with wood as well which made an excellent addition for late-night hanging out under the stars. Even with some rain, we kept ourselves busy with movies and games that were at the residence. Great experience overall, would definitely recommend to friends and family wanting to get out west and spend time in the mountains!

Truly felt as though we were camping. Half of our group is big on tent camping and the other half isn't so it was a good compromise. The cabin had many luxuries that a tent would not have, but it also preserved the essence of camping. Great location!
