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.

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!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was beautiful and clean. It was everything we were looking for. We would love to come back and stay here again we wish that we would have stayed the whole 7 days instead of split our vacation into Denver and then Idaho Springs. I would recommend staying in this gorgeous Log Cabin to anyone.

Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful. Lots of room inside and all the essentials for cooking are there. Really enjoyed the trails right outside the back and the sitting area by the creek is so relaxing.

Very comfortable and accessible.

  • 5 of 5

This is fairly private yet close to Idaho Springs. The home was comfortable and well kept up. We sat beside the rushing creek water with a lit chiminea enjoying a lovely setting tucked in the midst of nature.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin and property! We stay in cabins in Colorado frequently and this was the nicest so far. The hiking and creek were great as well as the location. We would definitely stay here again! The only complaints are that we could not stay longer as it was booked and that both propane tanks were empty for the grill. However, there was charcoal so we just bought some lighter fluid. Steaks taste better on charcoal anyway.

Inviting...

  • 5 of 5

We found this cabin to be much more, then advertised. Tastefully decorated, fully stocked…Spices, condiments, charcoal, etc…Idaho Springs was just a short drive, for dining, shopping and site seeing. For the adventure seeker, the drive up to Mount Evans is an experience not to be missed.

Back to the cabin, Furnishing, including the King Bed were very comfortable. Don’t forget your fishing gear too. As I was able to land a few trout right out the front Door.

Overall, I have no complaints on this rental and the next time I get the chance to visit Colorado, I will plan my trip around the availability of this unique setting.
