Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

We invite you to enjoy the inspiring space of our modest, two bedroom mountain cabin nestled in the Rocky Mountains. The cabin is a short scenic drive west of Boulder, Colorado and only two miles from the quaint and colorful mountain town of Nederland, CO. Built in the early 1900's, our house was the baggage depot which serviced the historic, Switzerland Trail Railroad. The cabin sits at approximately 8600 ft., is south facing, adorned with a lot of glass, great natural light and is passive solar. It is located off a county dirt road, providing easy winter access, situated in a lovely riparian valley, surrounded by Boulder County Open Space and the Roosevelt National Forest.

We remolded this historic cabin in the late 1990's, but not without first falling in love with the wonderful character and imperfections of this turn of the century structure. We purposely kept what we could, like the original hardwood floor, and took great care to salvage and recycle as much of the original, weathered materials, and then integrated them back into our home. Though 100 years old, our cabin offers the comfort of all the modern amenities, while preserving it's rustic charm in a uniquely, eclectic style. Reclaimed, hand hewn timbers accent the the cabin exterior, the master bedroom, and the one of a kind, rustic, hand poured bathroom. Hammered metal details and homemade doors add a wonderful, hand made touch throughout. Furnishings and decorations artistically blend textures from around the globe, as well as from local artisans, all of which enhance the uniqueness of your stay.

Our cabin is the ideal location for a romantic getaway, as well as a wonderful place to escape the summer heat or the hustle and bustle of the city. Relax and rejuvenate in the magic of our home and the clean Rocky Mountain air. Sit on your front porch while drinking your morning coffee. Soak in the sunshine viewing the native mountain wildflowers and listen to the melodic flowing stream along with the chirping chorus of the ubiquitous hummingbird and the song of the native mountain birds.

For the history buff, the valley in which our cabin sits, is steeped in mining history Our cabin specifically, is the gateway house before entering the New Cardinal historic mill site, which in its heyday, was one of the largest gold mines in the area. Across the road is a cute, well maintained cabin, that was the New Cardinal brothel, in the early 1900's. The remnants of the Switzerland Trail Railroad is only steps from your door, This, historic railroad grade offers a network of hiking, mountain biking and in the winter, cross country skiing trails right out your door. The extensive Nederland mountain biking trail systems are also accessed from your doorstep. Be at the Eldora Ski Resort, which offers downhill skiing, snowboarding and nordic skiing in only 10 minutes.

For the outdoor enthusiast, not only is there hiking, mountain bike riding and cross country skiing out your door, but just a few miles away in Boulder Canyon there is rock climbing, swimming, kayaking and fly fishing. The high alpine peaks of the Indian Peak Wilderness Area are easily accessed and only a short distance away. If you prefer a scenic mountain drive, or a spectacular road bike ride, the Peak to Peak Highway is two miles from our cabin, taking you to Rocky Mountain National Park to the north, or to the casinos of Black Hawk, and Central City to the south. The progressive town of Boulder itself is 17 miles down the canyon road, and offers a large variety of shopping, restaurants and the famous Pearl Street Mall.

Beautiful and quaint

  • 5 of 5

Roxanne's house was incredibly gorgeous, so much so that one of the girls I was traveling with started crying when we walked inside! It is literally on the side of a mountain with gorgeous views away from all of the loud hustle and bustle of the city. It even snowed on our second day which was breathtaking. Close drive to town for groceries and other items, very warm and gorgeous interiors, only 30 minutes from Boulder. We had friends texting all of us asking for the details of where we were staying because it was so beautiful! Highly recommend!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay on Caribou Road! The house is just beautiful inside and out! The detail that went into this home is exquisite! Everything you need is well thought out in this home. We couldn't have had a better stay! With some unexpected snow the electricity went out for the afternoon, I emailed Roxanne and she was quick to respond and very helpful! Definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to relax, explore and take in all of the beautiful of Colorado!

Amazing cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is beautifully restored and improved. I am not normally much into antiques or things of that nature, but I was impressed with the care and thought that has gone into restoring this cabin. There are numerous wall hangings and other objects throughout the home that are both fascinating and capture the history and mood of the surroundings. The cabin is well located to explore the area. Easy access to the peak-to-peak highway and Boulder. The weather was not cooperative when we were there, but we enjoyed our stay.

Perfect mountain retreat

We loved the house and the setting. Can’t think of a better way to spend a night than watching the Milky Way in the mountains. Roxanne made our stay very comfortable. Thank you for sharing your gem.
