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.

Fantastic blend of rustic mountain cabin charm with just enough modern conveniences added in.

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was off the beaten path but close to what we needed. It was rustic but comfortable. The deck was a magnet for us to sit and watch the sky and hummingbirds. Honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more. Roxanne was great to work with and the town was very friendly. We were impressed with a couple of restaurants (Crosscut and Salto). Just loved our time here.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was beautiful and modern. Every room had interesting decorations that made you feel like you were in an upscale cabin in the woods. There was a hummingbird feeder right outside the living room window and there were a lot of hummingbirds fighting over it, which was very entertaining. I felt like it was very private, even though there are two neighbors. We sat on the porch most of the time that we were there and never saw anyone else. You are very close to the mountains so every time you go somewhere, there are amazing views. The town of Nederland is very cute and has good restaurants and shopping. I would definitely stay here again.

Secluded stay in the wilderness

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful 3 night stay here. Roxanne's home is 2 miles down a dirt road. The drive itself is beautiful and gives you have a sense of what is to come. Walked in via a sunny deck with hummingbirds flying by. Inside it is spacious and very cool. Roxanne has a great aesthetic. Comfortable beds, nice soft clean linens. We hiked up to Jasper lake one day, visited Boulder the next. Husband stayed back to work and hung out on the deck. If you have to work, there is no better spot. If you love the outdoors, you will love this place. We could have stayed here a whole week and been very happy.

Quiet, relaxing & beautiful location with forest views & sounds of nature.

  • 4 of 5

We loved sitting out on the deck with the sounds of hummingbirds and the stream below. Hard to decide about having breakfast in the big "nook" off the kitchen (with windows all around) or outside on the comfy deck chairs. The windows everywhere bring the outside in--especially upstairs in the master bedroom. Sky, stars, moonshine, sunshine, forest. We wanted to spend time in every room of this old, charming, tastefully remodeled home.

We hiked the nearby trails and hardly saw anyone all day.

The kitchen was spacious and lovely with everything we needed and more. The kitchen sink window overlooks the hillside of flowers and forest beyond.

The only improvement I would make is to ask the cleaning crew to be a little more attentive to certain areas, but it wasn't enough to detract from the wonderfulness of this place. Definitely a magical mountain getaway.
