Cozy, small, one room cabin and an outhouse with a sink, solar bag shower, and composting toilet. Propane heat and single burner for heating up some coffee or a snack. Large beautiful deck with fire-pit and grill and peaceful river sounds. forest views sits on 4 acres. Park right next to the cabin with a 4x4/AWD or 50ft away with any vehicle. The Fisherman’s Cabin, hosted by Huts and Hills, has a wild and unique history. Originally it was built by two professors from Berkeley College as an annual mountain campsite. They used to make the pilgrimage every year from California to Colorado to come relax in the wonderful forest of the Lost Acres National Park. At the turn of the century, the Denver Wheel Club used to have their headquarters right next to the river just down Insmont Dr. and hosted a big bike race every year. This was before there was even a road to the mountains, and the only real public access to these lands were via the train from Denver! Today the Fisherman's Cabin is just a hop, skip and a jump outside downtown Bailey, Colorado and close to many mountain passes like Guanella and Kenosha. There are local hiking, fishing, hunting, biking, and animal watching activities waiting to be experienced. Sleeps 2 plus invite up to 6 friends for camping and goodtimes!

Wonderful getaway!!
We loved Fisherman’s Cabin!! Everything was perfect!! I will say we went very prepared just incase there wasn’t certain supplies. (Which there was so we just had extra.) Simon was a wonderful host, so responsive and helpful!! Bailey is such a cute town and make sure to check out Wellington Lake!! Would definitely stay there again!!

I loved it! It is close to 285 and Wellington Lake but feels far removed. It has everything you need for a glamping trip. Simon is very responsive and obviously thought through his guests needs. There was even a welcome bag filled with snacks. I will be back!

Cozy, well designed rustic getaway!
We absolutely loved staying in the fisherman’s cabin! Everything about the space was intuitively designed, convienent and comfortable. The bed was comfortable, and we stayed warm with out the heater- it was an early June evening. There were plenty of seating areas, one of them covered which was nice cause it rained a bit. There are several propane tanks to operate the grill, fireplace, and kitchen burner, and heater for the cabin which was super convienent. The coffee and mugs provided for the morning which was a nice touch, as well as a lantern inside and and solar lights outside. I really appreciated the well lit steps to the outhouse. It’s a steep climb and I felt totally safe climbing up there late at night. There were also battery operated lights available in the outhouse. The solor shower bags were a nice touch, so we could wash our hands and dishes. There was also soap and hand sanitizer available which made clean up easy. The cabin was a nice step above camping- still rustic with no electricity but without the hassle bringing a camping kitchen and all the gear along. Over all this was a great option for a last minute getaway for 2 really close to the city. I would highly recommend it! We will be back for sure!

Gone hikinh and biking
Probably one of the best set ups I've experienced from the well-appointed cabin to the outhouse. Really, who raves about an outhouse? This is a gteat basecamp to exploe the area. 4wd or Awd needed all year. The driveway is steep and rutted.

My wife and I had such an amazing experience at this cabin. It’s relatively close to Red Rocks, and the property is peaceful & far enough from Denver to where you can see incredible views of the stars at night. The host provided so much to make the stay more comfortable. Would definitely go back & recommend to anyone traveling in the area.
