The cabin is a family owned vacation getaway used by everyone from grandparents to grandchildren. We are 3rd and now 4th generation Coloradans who have spent considerable time in the Colorado outdoors and competing in various sports. Within our group of families we have a former multi time national Triathlon champion, former number 1 ranked Colorado volleyball player, 2 former freestyle skiing competitors, former state ranked tennis players, a junior 5k national champion and a grandmother who has hit 5 hole in ones! Note the extensive use of the word 'former' above. We are now working professionals with devote commitments to our families and children. We spend way too much time in an office and not enough at our cabin. The cabin is our escape from everyday life, a chance for the kids to get away from electronics and experience what we did as children, and an opportunity to escape the heat of summer and the crowds of winter. For families looking for this opportunity, we would be delighted to host you.
Why Owner/Manager chose Clark
The combination of location, charm, practicality and value are the extrinsic reasons why we purchased this cabin; however, it was the more intrinsic attributes such as lifestyle, surrounding beauty, and abundant recreational activities that ultimately made the decision quite easy. The benefits of having both a wilderness experience while still having plenty of comforts really sold us on this cabin. It was important that the kids had enough to do on property or within walking distance that they weren’t bored waiting around for the various families to get organized to drive everyone to a destination. Further, we recognized that we have family members with distinctly different interests so location would be essential. For instance, I love to fish but my youngest son does not. I can fish Mill Creek (just across the road from the cabin),or walk to Steamboat Lake while my son rides his mountain bike, builds forts on the property or explores the National Forest behind the cabin without any of us needing to get in a car. And when we do go for family adventures most are located very close to the cabin. On father’s day, three dads got up early and hiked to the summit of Sand Mountain. We were at the summit within 1.5 hours of the cabin. Fishing in the evenings is fantastic at Steamboat Lake with kids getting plenty of fish. Mountain biking on the USFS access puts you into unbelievably beautiful country within minutes. We can kayak and fish Steamboat, Pearl and Hahn’s Peak Lake within 10-15 minutes. Nature hikes including one of the State’s top ranked short hikes, a marine, visitors center, and bike paths are all within minutes of the cabin. In winter, you have cross country skiing, snow mobile riding, and snow shoeing to name a few. We will be doing snow kiting this winter as well. You can also make the 45 minute drive to Steamboat Ski Resort. This is a place where the kids won’t want to leave and neither will the adults.

Fantastic cabin at Steamboat Lake
A group of 4-6 hunters have stayed at Dave's cabin for 3 years running during 3rd rifle elk season (in early November). While others are roughing it in tents, we are staying in a warm cabin with a wood stove, cooking meals in a full kitchen, taking showers and doing laundry and sleeping in beds with sheets. The cabin is about as near as possible to the Routt NF access. Dave is exceptionally friendly and has always taken great care of us. We have done our part to take care of his beautiful cabin. Thanks, Dave. Cheers, Matt
the driveway was bad. We had a bad time to turn around with a trailer. We had to park it on the next door driveway but also we had a lot of snow. It would of been nice if there was a toaster on sight. Thanks we had a good time no elk though.
Glad you had a good time and sorry you didn't get any elk. The driveway itself is in good condition and I think you are just referring to it being slippery when it snowed. With a record October snowfall managing your trailer in those conditions could certainly be more challenging.
We do have a toaster oven on the counter. Perhaps you were referring to a pop up toaster which we don't have. Thanks for taking good care of the cabin Arnold.
Love this cabin!
Always a fun time and always a nice place !
great cabin home
Lovely, clean and quiet
Winter long weekend
We had 4 guys stay in the cabin for a long weekend of snowmobiling. The cabin worked great for us and we grilled 2 of the nights with the weber on the deck.
Gorgeous mountain retreat
The property is a beautiful, secluded getaway that is well-appointed and comfortable. The view is spectacular and the wildlife makes you really feel part of nature. It is exactly what you think of when someone says "cabin in the woods". The hosts go out of their way to ensure you have a pleasant experience, and they have provided all kids of outdoor gear to help make that happen. Our family had a wonderful mountain holiday and we would return in a heartbeat.
