The cabin has been designed from the ground up as a cozy vacation home for discerning guests. It is situated on 4 acres with an unforgettable view of 40 miles of the snow-capped Continental divide mountains. The acreage has a stream that runs from April-August and you can usually hear from your kitchen window which has a passthrough to the patio/grill area. There is also a small flat spot for tent-camping on the stream in an aspen grove if someone in your party wants to have a 'sleep out'. (NO FIRES) The property is perched on a rock outcropping above Colorado highway 72. So while remote, it is also relatively easy to get to. In the winter you may want 4WD, but it's not required if you have good tires and front-wheel drive after the drive is plowed (within 24 hours after a snow of at least 6"). The driveway is short and paved and a little steep by 'city' standards. There is parking for 1 car at the 'top' near the home and parking for 2-3 more vehicles along the driveway 30 yds down the driveway. Note that it will be difficult for a large SUV or truck to turn around at the top, so a large vehicle will have to back down the first 30 yds of the driveway to the turn before pulling out down the bottom of the drive.

You will hear road noise from the highway when outside, however the positioning of the property means you won't notice the road below very much when in the cabin. The centerpiece of the property in the summer is the outdoor grilling area with adirondack lounge chairs and a gas firepit. In the winter or on chilly spring or fall nights, the centerpiece of the property is the stone wood fireplace.

The home has good internet and free wifi (20-40Mbps upload and 2-5Mpbs download typically) that is also used for cell service and TV. NOTE: THERE IS NO cell signal or land-line phone or cable TV in the cabin. (AT&T works occasionally on high parts of the property outside). However wifi-enabled cell phones will work and there is plenty of streamed programming to enjoy on the 43" 4K TV. Also note that the TV in the living area is the only TV in the cabin.

The home has 4 amazon echos (alexas) to enjoy your favorite music throughout the home and get local recommendations or weather reports or control the home automation from your bed (if you choose to).

The two bedrooms both have queen beds, ensuite full bathrooms with rolling barn doors and full sized closets. Each bathroom has heated tile floors and a heated towel rack. The design of the home is such that one lucky person in each bedroom will be able to wake up to the morning view of the sun shining on the Continental divide through your bedroom door (if you leave your bedroom door open in anticipation, also helps let the smell of your morning coffee into the room).

The only difference in the two bedrooms is that the bath in the north bedroom has a double (2-person) shower and the bath in the south bedroom has a heated air bubble spa tub and shower.

The bedrooms and baths are cozy, leaving most of the room for the living/dining area. There is a full-sized washer/dryer and large pantry area and a full-sized kitchen that is fully stocked for most any gourmet cooking need. There is seating for 4 around the kitchen island and seating for 4-8 more around the dining table that sits at the 8' x 8' huge window that lets in the light and the view for cookers and diners.

The living room has a sofa and two recliners that can be rotated to enjoy the view out the other 8'x8' window or the fireplace and tv. The centerpiece of the interior of the home is the dramatic stone fireplace that uses stone from Telluride, Colorado. That same stone adorns the exterior foundation and grill/fire-pit area.

The 300 sq ft loft area is accessible by a 10' ladder. ** Note that there are no stairs to the loft and only people comfortable climbing a ladder should plan to use the loft. USE THE LADDER AT YOUR OWN RISK.** The loft has 2 queen beds and plenty of headroom. There are also bookshelves with many books and games and a game table that seats 4 and cozy writing/working desk with the best views you'll find all up in the loft. The loft has lots of light from large windows on each end and 4 large and openable skylights.

The home is located 15 minutes from Nederland Colorado or Eldora Ski Resort, 30 mins from Boulder and 45 mins from Denver. (65 mins from DIA airport). Rocky Mountain National Park is about an hour North on the scenic 'peak-to-peak' highway and the gambling mining towns of Black Hawk and Central City are 30 mins South on the peak-to-peak highway where you can also access I-70 to go West to the large resort areas (Keystone/Breckenridge/Vail/etc) in 1-2 hours.

THERE IS NO A/C in the home (and few homes up here at 8,500 ft of elevation have A/C, even new built homes like this cabin). But all of the windows of the home open to let in the cool rocky mountain air. It's rare that temps get into the 80s or more, but when they do you may need to open windows to let in the nighttime air that always gets into the 40s or 50s and pull down shades to control the sunshine getting into the front windows which warms up the home in summer and winter in the afternoons.

If you're looking for the ultimate Colorado cabin feel that is authentic, remote and not part of a large resort, and to not compromise on comfort and luxurious finishes, the SkyRun Cabin is the place for you.

What to be aware of:

- There is no A/C, Cell Service or Cable TV.  Wi-fi cell service and streaming TV works very well on the internet in the home.
- The home is on CO highway 72 providing easy access, but you will hear some road noise also.
- Some may find the driveway tricky to navigate and larger vehicles may need to back down the driveway (not able to turn around at the top).  There is parking for one vehicle at the top and parking for other vehicles 30yds down the driveway.
- NO PETS, NO SMOKING on property.
- Due to local regulations, this home has a maximum overnight occupancy of just 4, even though it can sleep up to 8.

What You'll Love:

- Large windows to stunning continental divide views.
- Remote location on 4 Acres adjoining National Forest, but close to Hwy 72 and 30 mins to Boulder or Denver.
- Elegant Mountain Modern. Decor.  Cozy.
- Grill/Firepit on outdoor covered patio.

A Rustic Babymoon
My husband and I stayed here for our babymoon and really enjoyed our time. A few days before our stay, property management emailed me to let me know the Wi-Fi was down and would most likely not be working during our stay. They offered a small refund for each night for the inconvenience or another cabin that did have Wi-Fi. We opted for the refund, as we really wanted to stay in the cabin and had an unplugged weekend, except for when we went into Boulder. We also ended up having no running water our first night and the following morning, but I emailed property management when we went into town, and Linda called me right away and had the problem sorted by the time we got back. She also left us two gallons of purified water in case the water went out again and some kettle corn. The communication was great, and Linda was incredibly helpful. We had a lovely weekend and would stay here again.

4/5 Good

Can’t beat the views
We were moved from this place after a few days because the Wi-Fi went out, and I was working remotely. They made it right, and we are waiting on a partial refund. The place was clean, though, it did have a bug problem. The second place did not, though, a train went through the backyard every 5 hours or so. The views were incredible at both places. This place did have thin walls, so it was easy to hear people in the other bedroom. The places were relatively updated and provided many comforts. Owners and Skyrun made themselves available and got back to us in a couple hours of contacting them if we texted and sooner if we called. All in all, a lovely trip.

5/5 Excellent

Views, views, views!
