Welcome to our Next to Nothing, Close to Everything , Rocky Mountain Cabin in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado! Colorado Dream Vacation!
Relax and take in the amazing view! Take a deep breath, and be glad you're here!! You'll be mesmerized by the softly swaying branches on the trees that give way to the magnificent, huge granite outcroppings, snow-capped mountains, and bright blue skies as far as you can see. Rest, relax, and breathe deep, knowing all you need in order to enjoy yourself is the key! You are 5 minutes to town, restaurants, shopping and all kinds of attractions! Not to mention hiking directly from the front door!
The Cabin, over 900 square feet, sits on a sprawling 4.25+acre estate, joined by over 1100 acres of park land:
• 1 loft bedroom, with flat screen TV, plus queen sleeper sofa downstairs and another flat screen TV
• 1 bathroom
• Living room - open to dining
• Private Hot tub
• A VERY private breathtaking view of the sun rising and setting over the surrounding mountains!
Part of the home's charm is it's feeling of tranquility and privacy – you can't see any other homes from your perch on the deck, except for those on other mountains, far in the distance – but you're still close enough to town (about 3 miles) to have convenient access to grocery stores, shopping or dining at one of the fabulous nearby restaurants. This unique location allows a blend of solitude and opportunities for socialization, making it perfect for you, your family, and friends. The Cabin is thoughtfully decorated Mountain style, with your comfort in mind! Why come to the Rockies and not have that warm, cozy, (but not overdone) Mountain feel!? You'll find it here!

The outdoor area surrounding the physical property is every bit as enthralling as the Cabin. The cabin sits on 4+ acres and abuts parkland that totals over 1100 acres of gloriously untamed wilderness. One of our favorite things to do is just sit on the deck and relax. It's easy to forget your cares when you feel the pine-scented wind softly ruffling your hair as the sun lazily drifts through the clear, blue sky. The sights and sounds here are second to none, with critters of all shapes, sizes, and colors coming and going as they please. We have elk, deer, chipmunks, fox, and all kinds of birds.
In September 2012 we saw a mama bear and her two cubs crossing the road, coming home from downtown Evergreen. Hot tub aficionados take note: while drinking in your share of the cool mountain air, you may be visited by Fox E. Brown. Our resident friendly fox has kept us company through a few hot tub excursions and beautiful sunsets, grooming himself from his perch on the rocky outcrop that juts out over the tub as we soaked. Don't worry, he never jumps in!
While most people think of mountain destinations like Evergreen as a seasonal experience, there are so many things to do and places to go within a short distance that Colorado Dream Vacation® is truly is a year-round destination. Summer time is a great time for fishing, hiking, bike riding, checking out local festivals and mountain parks. Kids have a great time at Dinosaur Ridge, or Heritage Square in Golden! Heritage Square Amusement Park in Golden is about 25 minutes away and has a 220 ft double zip line, go karts, boats, golf, an arcade, and rides including a ferris wheel and tilt-a-whirl, and all kinds of fun things to do! The zoo in Denver is phenomenal too! Right around Evergreen, there's canoeing, paddle boats, and tons of walking/hiking trails in Evergreen and the Lake. In the fall, don't miss the Aspens and the leaves turning to the fire neon gold! Absolutely stunning!
There are so many great roads with outstanding scenery to take short trips, up to a full day trip, returning to Colorado Dream Vacation, and the warmth of the hot tub, with the view! Winter, of course, is skiing for your whole family, about an hour away in Breckenridge, A Basin, Keystone or Winter Park. Nearby Echo Mountain caters to snow boarders, and there's always old fashion sledding on the property.
Evergreen Lake is so close and there's still so much to enjoy there! Ice fishing, ice skating, hockey, along with of course snow men, and snow fish, and whatever you can imagine making! Spring brings snow melt, which is a great time for white water rafting! Spring is beautiful with the spring flowers, and the smell of newness in the air! Horseback riding is great fun virtually all year long, and indoor swimming is at Wulf Recreation Center in Evergreen.
Don't forget how close you'll be to downtown Denver too! Professional hockey, football, and baseball are 30-40 minutes away! Red Rocks Ampitheater is about 20 minutes away with a history of world class musicians taking the stage. Don't miss the view of Denver from here, or the museum that in the lower level-it's amazing!
I could go on and on about all the great things there are to see and do in the area, so close to the house and cabin, yet you'll feel a world away, when you get home from the day's activities, slip into the hot tub, with a beverage of your choice, watching the sun go down!
In June 2012 we received the first short-term rental permit issued in Jefferson County. It was a difficult permit to attain, but we managed it, and we work hard to maintain the necessary requirements to keep the permit in effect. To date, there are still only 6 legal short-term rentals in all of Jefferson County, only 2 in Evergreen. We are the only one within 5 minutes of downtown Evergreen and the Lake House! If in doubt, ask for a copy of the permit! Ask us, and ask others! All others besides 6 are illegal! Illegal operators can be shut down at any time. Don't risk your valuable vacation, time, and money!
We have professional photographs scheduled for late May 2019, as we have made several upgrades, and my pics just don't do justice. But you can see them on our website, ColoradoDreamVacation.com. Please feel free to ask questions!
We had an awesome time here. The house is spacious and clean, and we had everything we needed. The best part about this place is the location and the views. You are far away enough from the neighbors that it is private, but close enough to evergreen that restaurants and shopping are convenient. There is an awesome hiking trail just off the driveway which takes you up the mountain, we went every morning. We had a wonderful time and are already talking about coming back next year. The only word of caution I have about this house is the driveway can be a little steep and slippery at times, so consider something with 4 wheel drive if you are flying in and renting.
This was the most well-equipped, organized, and clean VRBO’s we’ve ever stayed at! The location is divine - quiet and isolated, but still close to lots of fun activities. The views and sunshine are spectacular, and the decor is comfy and authentic. Sandi was very attentive and kind to work with. We stayed with our two young boys (2+5) and they were so sad to leave...we really felt like we were at home! Thanks, Sandi!
The home and cabin on the property are absolutely a perfect retreat. You have everything you could ask for in a property with views, and hiking right outside the doors. Wildlife near by just adds to the ambiance of being in the mountains. Recommend this for family's, honeymooners, or just a weekend get away.
Had a wonderful time and this house is so beautiful and comfy, you can see for miles from any room in the house, and it is beautiful scenery. It's so quite and relaxing, it is the perfect get away. And the little town is wonderful so many shops and restaurants and everyone makes you feel so welcome, you must come visit this wonderful place it is one of my favorite vacations.
This is an amazing property. It is well kept, and the theme of the house is beautiful. It goes perfectly with the setting. This comes with everything you will ever need. It is fully furnished. The views are great. We stayed during winter and it was fantastic. We will definitely come back to see how amazing it is during the summer.
