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.

Wonderful Stay. Words can't hardly describe it, but if I had to use 1...Majestic!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay! The property owner was super easy to work with. We enjoyed indoor & outdoor fires every night. This place is worth the stay 20 times over! The creek & trails are beautiful. Good eating in town (The Buffalo & Beau Jo's are great, skip El Rancho) snowboarding, scenic drives, so much to list, all close by. We had 4 adults this time, but we will definitely be coming back & bringing our children. Thank you so much for opening up this lovely cabin 4 rental! I highly recommend this spot for any Colorado trips young or old, so much fun, so much to do, so beautiful & so relaxing!! 😊�

Colorado Rockies Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Arapaho Cliffs Log Cabin in June 2017. It is a great location to make frequent trips to Mt Evans. The mountain goats that frequent the 14,000 ft peak have kids this time of year and they are a delight to watch and photograph. The marmots and pikas are a plus for the nature lover and photographer. This cabin is wonderfully appointed but is close to the restaurants of Idaho Springs if you need them. The owner is great to work with and the cabin is highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Jane and Rinus take amazing wildlife and nature photos at exotic places all over the world. I'm honored that they chose our cabin as their base camp to explore Mt. Evans in two different years.

Good trip

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice cabin with a great view of the river. Had almost everything you needed. Our family of 6 enjoyed it. Although we had a few problems it was still overall a good cabin and trip. Close to all the hiking we wanted to do and to town.

Beautiful break from the world!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 5 staying in this house, all adults, some couples. And we LOVED this place! So peaceful and beautiful, loved sitting down by the river with a fire going at night! Plenty of sleeping room for all! Were able to hike up the trail behind the house, beautiful! And loved we were only 2 miles from town for when we wanted food, shopping or any other needs! We will be coming back!
