Mountain Home Trapper Lake: Mountain views-hike, fish, snowmobile horseback ride
- English, Spanish
What makes this Cabin unique
Located at the NW base of a mountain chain, heavily wooded with pines and Aspens and open meadows with a wide range of wildflowers. In the winter you have the legendary Steamboat Powder snow, but generally, more of it then Steamboat Springs and Rabbit Ears Pass get but none of the crowds. We are the only rental open to the public in the winter. Great Colorado River Cutthroat fishing along the 1/2 mile of private river frontage located below the cabin and across the ridge are elk and mule deer trails. Additionally, within a 20 mile radius of the cabin, hundreds of miles of streams and rivers and hundreds of pond, reservoir, lakes and mountain tarns surround the cabin location. All abundant with fish, especially trout. August is the best time to come out to fish. Conveniently located along the Flat Tops National Scenic Byway and near back country horseback riding trails that take you into the Flat Tops Wilderness. In the winter, the scenic byway is groomed and local snowmobiling clubs maintain over 180 miles of trails-not to mention the numerous powder bowls and steeps.

I can't even express how wonderful our stay in this beautiful home was. We had the time of our lives! Chip and Lisa were so very nice and helpful. We got home last week and are already making plans to return. We will definitely be making this a yearly tradition!
We feel our property is a gem too! So glad we had the chance to share it with you and that your family enjoyed it so much. We look forward to your return.
Wild Skies Cabin Rentals
Beautiful cabin in a beautiful location!
A large and beautiful lodge set in a pristine landscape amidst aspen and pine forest on the western end of the Flat Top mountains, with a creek running below it. We had fun lounging on the deck gazing at the view, and fishing for trout in the stream below. We also drove about five minutes up the road to fish in Vaughn Lake, another beautiful setting with rolling wildflower hills around the lake. There's lots of good hikes through the aspen forests nearby too. Definitely this is the place to stay in the Flat Tops!!!
Thanks so much for the review. I look forward to seeing the photos you took while vacationing at our place!
Great Peaceful Spot
A very beautiful, clean home. A very remote location with great horseback riding near by and beautiful lakes. The owners are very friendly and super helpful with any and all needs. We all had a great, relaxing time here.
Outstanding place to retreat to
Wild Skies is an outstanding place to retreat to with first class accommodations. No expense was spared on building this property. Comfort, cleanliness and fine detail are the norm throughout this home in the mountains. The owners were great to work with and accommodating. Highly recommend it weather you are hunting, fishing or just relaxing as we were.
5 mile trail ride to areas where the only tracks in the snow are your own!
I love your review! I'm using it in my next email campaign. We look forward to seeing you again.
Great area, modern facilities
Short trail ride and you are in great snow! Minimal traffic was nice to see. Wide open meadows to hill climbs, this area has something for every skill level. We will be back!
Mike-so glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you taking the time to write the review and hope you talk us up in the forums as well. We look forward to your return visit!
