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.

Beautiful, Peaceful Property

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was beautiful with a log-cabin/mountain theme throughout. The property was very peaceful, but was located close enough to town to be convenient. Would recommend the property for couples and families looking for a mountain getaway. Had a fantastic visit!!

VERY charming Log Cabin. The whole family absolutely loved this place. We will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the setup of this cabin. It was perfect for our family of 6. The kids loved exploring along the creek and having a wood burning stove:)). They all asked to come back in the summer to try out fishing and hiking. Hope to try this place again next time we ski. Great location for multiple ski resorts and tubing!!!

Perfect Cabin for Our Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin on the creek along with all its' furnishings was perfect in every way! From the moment you cross the bridge onto the property, you know you've found an amazing dream get-away home. The home is tastefully decorated throughout with the mountainous and miners' themes, has beautiful furnishings, and a fully stocked kitchen with all the essential pots, pans & dishes. The bedrooms and loft were spacious and the beds and pillows were very comfortable. The wood burning stove kept us toasty and the wood was stocked for us. The home was immaculate and very well maintained. The location could not be better and you're only a couple miles from Idaho Springs along with hiking trails right out back of home. For those that want it, the wifi was easy to use and there's tvs in most rooms. The owners were delightful to deal with and extremely accommodating! They have given very helpful and useful information in the cabin on a variety of things pertaining to the cabin itself as well as the surrounding areas. Whether you want to get away from the fast paced life and relax awhile or fish, hike, ski, raft, mine tour, etc., it's a great stay! We took advantage of trying out the Indian Hot Springs. We expected to find it very busy, but it was quite opposite. There were very few people there. It was very relaxing. In addition to cooking in the cabin, we tried a new place. We always go to Beau Jo's when passing through Idaho Springs, so we decided to try out Tommyknocker Brewery & Pub. The food portions were HUGE, reasonably priced, and delish!!! The beer was very good as well. Either place for eating out, you'll be pleased. We also shopped in several of the stores in town and found all the people very friendly. We can't say enough great things about this home, the setting or the owner. We highly recommend this lovely cabin and know you won't be sorry! Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer and make more memories in this exquisite place!

Beautiful and comfortable Log Cabin Home

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home is perfect for getting away from the bustle of life but staying only 3 miles from things you need. The sound of the rushing creek in the front yard, the walks along nature's paths, and the comfortable home make this a place we will fondly remember. We could sleep soundly in the good beds then drive easily to ski, get groceries or eat out, or shop a bit. What a special place!

Instructions were very easy to follow as well as directions to location. We loved the convenient location to both city and mountain attractions. The cabin was fully equipped and the setting beautiful.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This cabin exceeded our expectations! It is so cozy and inviting - great layout with the bedrooms and a perfect use of space. The area was wonderful for hiking and exploring. Idaho Springs is a nice little town for shopping and dining. We loved Beau Jo's pizza and the BBQ place with the pig statue out front (can't remember the name). We will definitely be back!
