About Brent & Lisa Watson

My husband and I absolutely love the mountains year round! We discovered this little gem 5 years ago during one of our frequent trips to Idaho Springs and further west. We absolutely fell in love with the mountain location. It is up top almost to tree line at approximately 10,200 feet. You can see the Continental Divide from the driveway. We enjoy the wildlife, wild flowers, easy access to hiking trails and access to ski resort during the winter months.

Brent & Lisa Watson purchased this cabin in 2012

Beautiful, just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

After a little bit of difficulty getting to the property, we had a wonderful time. They are serious when they suggest using a four-wheel drive as we were in a front wheel van and weren't able to access the property in that vehicle the first day because of the snow. The house and view is beautiful. Owners have thought of many amenities that you normally don't get with a vacation rental to include use of the pantry, darts and other games at the cabin. I enjoyed the walks with my dog the most and am most grateful for the allowance of pets in the cabin. Everything was perfect!

Perfect cabin experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying at this cabin! Beautiful, serene setting and the cabin was the most well equipped we have ever experienced. We enjoyed the family games, cards, puzzles, PS3, TV's, mini pool, archery, horseshoes, fishing, Cornhole, darts, charcoal grill, hummingbird feeders, whole house audio, wifi, hammock and more. The owners didn't miss a thing! The kitchen is well stocked and we appreciated the nice bedding, towels, toiletries, paper products and cleaning supplies. They thought of everything! The cabin is pretty, modern, and well maintained. Our family biked, hiked, toured St Mary's glacier and a local gold mine. We had a wonderful time at this property and would highly recommend it. The owner was friendly and great to deal with. We'd love to being our family back here again!

Perfect summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here in July 2017. Cabin itself is nicely designed with all necessary upgrades. Kitchen was well stocked, so we didn't have any hard time cooking meals here. It's a few miles away from the Glacier trail and it's tucked in the woods. There are other cabins near by but it doesn't feel like it for sure.

The loft was a hit by kids and beds are very comfortable. I ended up sleeping in the loft with my kids every night.

Great Get A Way

  • 5 of 5

Great mountain cabin at over 10,000 ft., great hiking, fishing and over all relaxation. Also great location for area attractions such as white water rafting, train rides, mine tours and some great local restaurants in Idaho Springs and Georgetown. Thank you Lisa and Brent for letting my son and I stay at your cabin.

Luxe Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

What a weekend! We are already looking forward to another visit. For 4 days we never left the house other than to hike, the ability to walk to amazing lake hikes was very special. The kitchen was wonderfully appointed; we cooked, relaxed on the deck with the hummingbirds and escaped from the realities of the real world. Thank you for sharing your lovely cabin with us!

Very nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is decorated nicely and well stocked with what you'll need. Two full bathrooms, 1 in the master bedroom. Wi-Fi is also available. There are chairs and additional gear in n the garage that you may find helpful. It would be beneficial to have additional info in cabin about the length of the trails, the entrance to the glacier, and activities around. If hiking to the glacier, park at 2nd parking lot (need $5 cash or check), and you'll pass the trail head. While on the trail, it isn't obvious which way to walk. At the first fork, stay to the left. Second fork, go more to the right. Going left takes you off course.

There is a train in Georgetown that might be interesting. We missed the last train. We rode to Breckenridge which was about 40 minutes. We hiked the glacier and part of the trails near the cabin.

Keep in mind that this cabin is at least 20 min from main highway. Last week of May 2017, ATV rentals were closed. Mt Evans also closed.

Owner's Response: Dear Amy, Thank you so much for your note. I'm glad you had a great stay and enjoyed our hidden treasure. I appreciate the feedback about including the $5 parking expense for St. Mary's Glacier Hike, as well as providing additional information on the trails close by (Loch Lomond, James Peak and the Continental Divide Trail). Our cabin is definitely a True Mountain Getaway. We advertise our cabin this way to be sure all guests staying are looking for a mountain experience. We are located at 10,200 feet and are 20 minutes from the main road, closest town and grocery store. Thanks again for taking time to provide us feedback Amy and we are glad you enjoyed your trip to Colorado. Sincerely, Lisa
