About Donna Brannan

Don, born and raised in Colorado married Donna, a New York Native over 33 years ago. Don has enjoyed the cabin since childhood, hiking, biking, skiing, hunting, fishing, climbing and exploring with his parents. We found a trail behind the cabin where a covered wagon had once tipped over. To this day old glass bottles can be dug up at this site. The trail opens to a large meadow and bubbling stream.

Donna Brannan purchased this cabin in 1965

Why Donna Brannan chose Front Range Colorado

A family jewell passed on, now for others to enjoy as well. Colorado history abounds in the area. It is near Peak to Peak Highway which has the most beautiful sights available on the front range.

What makes this cabin unique

A huge feature is that the back door leads onto the Roosevelt National Forest. Hiking & mountain biking trails are feet away to springs and a nearby river. Wildlife prevails in the area; moose, dear and elk are common. Ghost towns and 4 wheel drive trails surround the area, and are a short drive away.

Relaxing Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet, scenic escape from the City to catch up on work and enjoy being in the mountains. This was the perfect place for it! Clean, well stocked and the wood stove was amazing on a snowy day.

The property is perfect for a quiet get away. Everything was better than described and expected.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was everything we expected and more. Donna was very communicative and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The location was exceptional, and the beautifully remodeled cabin provided the perfect setting for our weekend. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone, and we will definitely be coming back to stay here again.

Could'nt Have Been Better!,

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owners could have not been more accomidating. They actually went up to the cabin before our arrival to make sure that everything was perfect for our stay. Even lighting a fire and turning on the music.

ELDORA SKI RESORT is a hidden gem. The lift tickets are less then most ski areas. Parking is Free, not to mention that the traffic to get there is almost non existent.

We were so excited to head back that we already reserved the cabin for our ski vacation next year!

Thank you, Don and Donna-we couldn't have had a better time!
