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 Idaho Springs

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!! 😊�

Lovely cabin, great location

  • 4 of 5

We just spent 10 days in this lovely cabin with friends (2 couples). It is a great location to use as a launching point for all things Colorado. We visited Keystone, Vail, and Beavercreek for skiing and drove to Colorado Springs to visit Garden of the Gods and Pike’s Peak area. All are easy drives from this cabin. Idaho Springs is a funky little mountain town with friendly shops and restaurants. The cabin has comfy beds and bedding which was very welcome after long fun filled days. We would definitely return to this property. Owner is very responsive and helpful. Thanks for a great trip.

Relaxing winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Husband and I took a long weekend getaway here. The cabin was wonderful! Everything was clean and comfortable. We made good use of the wood burning stove. Idaho Springs was a fun little town to walk around and we were within easy driving distance of other activities (Breckenridge, Winter Park snowmobiling, etc.). Would definitely come back!

Wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Cabin had everything. Beds was soft . Trail was a little scary in the snow but worth it. Pictures of tvs needs update because TVs are better than pictures

Owner's Response: You're right! We need to update our website photos to reflect recent improvements such as the 4 flat screen TVs and the custom beetle-kill pine banquet table. We are so happy to hear that people are enjoying the cabin and grounds. Thanks!
