About Randy Skalski

We hope that you have a wonderful stay at our log cabin. We lived in Colorado for more than 20 years and after a careful search, purchased this cabin for our family’s use during frequent trips to Colorado and enjoy sharing it with our guests. Thank-you for being our guest and we hope you will return.

Randy Skalski purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Randy Skalski chose Front Range Colorado

We love the setting of our cabin, nestled in a canyon, with a roaring creek, surrounded by National Forest, and without another home in sight. We also like the convenient location near the lively and vibrant City of Denver, with every available cultural activity and amenity; the quaint and historic town of Idaho Springs; and all the splendid sights and activities in the Rocky Mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

The sights and sounds of the creek are truly magical. On a more practical note, the cabin is extremely easy to find and easy to get to anytime of year on paved roads that are snow-plowed regularly. Winter access is about as good as it gets for the mountains in Colorado.

Relaxing cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is great. Well appointed and comfortable. It is close to everything but feels secluded. This was our 2nd stay here and hopefully last.

Nice and Cozy

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property. The cabin was nice a secluded but close enough to town that we could still run into grab dinner on the nights we did not cook. The living area was perfectly set up. The kitchen was well stocked for any type of cooking. The dishwasher was a nice but I realized it had a small leak after the first use so we did not use it again. The beds were comfortable but the pillows were feather and did not hold form very well. My daughter loved the loft area to play. We loved the yard because there was plenty of snow to play in meaning we got to spend most of our time enjoying the cabin instead of traveling to other locations. My only complaint is that I had requested a late check out twice because of when our departing plane was and did not receive a response to my request. I didn't expect to have it granted but a simple no would have been appreciated.

Absolutely great!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family vacation. We really enjoyed the log fire oven in the living room after skiing all day. With beginner skiers, myself included Loveland Valley ski area was only 40mins away. Plus only an 8min drive to Idaho Springs, which was a very friendly and fun small town.
