Little Buffalo Cabin
My dad and I (I’m 50, he’s 76) are fishing our way around Colorado, and Leslie’s cabin in Hartsel was our first stop. It was perfect. A great place to unwind after fishing the Dream Stream. Fully stocked kitchen, soap, towels, a beautiful backyard looking out over the valley and mountains. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. We will definitely book this place again when we’re out that way.

Hidden Gem of a Cabin!
Most travelers pass right through Hartsel but this stay is a must. The cabin is welcoming and warm with the wood burning stove, furnishings, and decor. The rich history of the cabin and the town makes you feel at home away from home. The cabin was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and provides lovely place settings to enjoy a meal at the quaint kitchen table. Waking up to views of the mountains and a local bison herd is a special treat. It is also in walking distance of two local restaurants. The host was quickly responsive and kind!

Cute, antique decorations and quiet
This is so quiet and decorated so nicely. The fireplace was wonderful. Perhaps the alarm is too close to the fireplace. Any chance turning up the water heater is possible? The water did not stay hot for very long.

Quintessential log cabin
What a beautiful cabin! Nicely decorated and well supplied with all the basic amenities and more. Loved the wood burning stove supplied with firewood. Definitely the perfect quintessential cabin in the mountains I was looking for. Highly recommend if you're looking to spend a lot of time snuggling indoors. Not necessarily the best location for outdoor activities though - at least 20 mins to the nearest hiking trail and 40 mins from hot springs. It took me about 15 mins on foot to see everything there is to see in Hartsel. But perfect for a cozy wintertime getaway! Well worth the price.

High Altitude Cozy Cabin Glamping
This cabin has everything you need to cozy up on winter's night in the high plains of Park County. With running water, a full kitchen, electricity, heat, and linens, this little cabin comfortably sleeps 4 and has everything you need to relax before a day outdoors. Located in the small village of Hartsel, there is just one general store in the area so make sure to pack your groceries. This little cabin has parking right outside and is very accessible. The outdoor area includes a fenced in yard for the dogs, an outhouse and a patio for grilling and eating in the warmer weather as well as some sweeping mountain views. The interior of the cabin includes a sunroom, living room, 2 bedrooms, a dining room, a bathroom, a kitchen, and even an area to do your laundry. A wood stove and necessary wood is provided to keep the cabin extra toasty but there is also a heater. The interior is rustic with western touches like vintage art, a leather checkerboard, and tin detailing. All in all, the Little Buffalo cabin was cozy, clean, and accessible, with all the amenities it provided, it exceeded expectations. I would highly recommend this Hipcamp to anyone looking to stay in Hartsel. Note: This cabin is at almost 9,000ft of elevation, please be aware of the altitude and stay hydrated!
