Yes, up to 2 quiet, non-reactive dogs are allowed per cabin unit with a non-refundable pet fee of $40. Dogs cannot be left unaccompanied at any time and must be leashed while outside unless you have reserved the whole property. Other than dogs, we do not accept any other pet stays. Please note that we do not ban specific dog breeds as there are no active breed bans in our county. However, if your dog is reactive, loud, or dangerous to other dogs or humans, this is not a good accomodation match. Thank you for understanding.

Sorry, children are not permitted. We are parents and this was a hard choice but the property is best suited for adults.

We do not make exceptions to this policy, thank you for understanding. Young adults 12+ are welcome.

Unfortunately, campfires are not allowed on the property. We are in an extremely high-risk area for wild fires and most often, the entire county has a fire ban in place. You are welcomg to bring your camp stove or small propane fire pit if it has an on/off switch.
We sure do! Please select “whole property” on our booking page. Please note that we do not host weddings, events or large gatherings on the property, it is strickly for the folks listed in the reservation.

Visit Mount Evans where you can drive to the top of Mount Evan's Scenic Byway and it’s absolutely glorious! Please note that this is now named 'Mount Blue Sky' but the signs have not yet changed. The entrance is 6 miles up 103 from the cabins. It is not open year round and you must make a reservation with the forestry service which is fast ans easy! Mount Evans Scenic Byway is the highest paved road in the United States. If you are afraid of heights, focus on the beautiful plants and wild life! If you do one thing while you are here, do this!
Hike nearby Chief Mountain! Wonderful in-and-out 3 mile trail. It is moderate and mostly uphill but the pay off is so worth it with 360 views at the top! We suggest starting early to avoid crowds as this is quite a popular trek and there is only parking along the road.
Visit St. Mary’s Glacier! This is a very easy hike up to the Glacier. Don’t forget to bring $20 cash or check for parking. The drive and the whole experience is beautiful. Bring a picnic to enjoy at the glacier or get lunch at Miner Street Restaurant in downtown Idaho Springs afterwards. Get there early, it can fill up pretty fast especially on the weekend. In the hot Summer months, bring your swimsuit. Not sure it's "legal", but a quick dip in the glacier waters is mighty refreshing.
Soak in hot mineral springs at Indian Hot Springs. There are several options for soaking here and it’s a very short drive from the cabins. The pool is fun, but it’s also worth it to splurge and get a pass for the caves as well. Don't bother with getting your own hot tub or private soaking room unless you are fiercly private and need that too relax. Please note that this place is very vintage and unique. Don't have super high expectations and just enjoy it for what it is, which is weird :-)
Visit Echo Lake. Wether you are looking for an easy stroll or a moderate hike, this place has all of the options! It is beautiful at all times of the year and is only a few minutes drive up 103 from the cabins.
If it’s winter time, visit the Echo Mountain Ski Resort. Day passes are inexpensive and the views are beautiful! The best part is that there is no traffic to get there, not even a stop sign. They also make affordable bar food. Don't do snow sports, we get it. It's still an enjoyable place to have a beer.
Visit Idaho Springs. We love this town. It’s fun to stroll Main Street and look at all of the shops. You can’t miss Annie’s Gold (the best antique store) and Edelweiss Pastry Shop (stick to the sweet stuff, savory is not their forte). This is also where you will be able to stock up on groceries (Safeway) and eat out, fill up with gas, etc. Our favorite places to eat are Main Street Restaurant, Westbound & Down, Big B’s Soup & Grilled Cheese , Two Brother's Deli and Eric's Asian Cafe (Eric's is kind of dumpy just FYI - but the food is great). For more fun things to do in Idaho Springs, visit their website here. Our favorite shop is Marigold, visit them for beautiful flower arrangments and a curated retail section.
Our favorite suggestion is to explore our road, West Chicago Creek. Three miles up, you will find the trail head for Hell’s Hole , a beautiful long hike full of aspen groves, flowers and creek front frolicking spaces. If you plan to complete the 9 mile hike, be prepared with lots of water and snacks.
Treat yourself to a massage with Rhonda at Idaho Springs Massage. She is a thorough, professional and intuitional healer.
Live like a local and listen to 103.9 The Goat, the biggest little radio station in the world. They play a variety of tunes that always hit so good! It is also one of the only stations that comes in clear up here!
