Adorable hidden gem, private along River, cozy for a few - 5 out of 5 stars

"This little A-frame cabin is adorable, stocked with all of the kitchen supplies needed to stay for a while. The outdoor area is nestled in some trees providing shade, but also sun, and equipped with so many seating options. I loved the hammock and the swinging bench. The little river is, everything needed to check out from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The deck has a barbecue, dining set and is surrounded with adorable, string lights. The bedrooms are practical. Everything else in the house is so cute! The house is due for a deep clean, but all of the usable spaces were clean. We were pleasantly surprised that you could not hear the cars from the road nearby. This place was so special!"

Lovely Cabin with Fabulous Views - 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect Mountain Retreat! - 5 out of 5 stars

"Cabin was just as pictured snd more secluded than some of the other reviews identified. I never saw a neighbor while we soaked up the outdoors, but we did see an moose and her calf, an elk and two different foxes. Cabin was secluded enough to make you feel like you here camping in the mountains but close to town for golf, groceries and restaurants. Being right on the river was my favorite feature!"

Great mountain views - 5 out of 5 stars

"The cabin is in a great location, just a short drive to shopping and restaurants as well as many outdoor activities. The views of the mountains are outstanding and the outside seating area by the riverside is very private and peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return one day. "

Simple cabin on the river - 5 out of 5 stars

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this A-frame along the river in September! The beds and the bedding were very comfortable. There were fans in the upstairs and downstairs closets so we were able to open the windows at night and maintain a cool enough temperature (It was still 80 degrees during the day during our stay). I went to do laundry at the end of our trip and was unable to find laundry detergent. There was fabric softener and stain remover but I could not find detergent anywhere. Perhaps I just missed it. I was able to make do pretty well with the cooking utensils in the kitchen although there is no tea kettle (this isn't a huge deal, but I like to know!). We did see a fox come visit the yard every night, and observed some deer across the river! It was quiet and the hammock is super comfortable. There are several games in the closet, most notably Jenga and Scrabble, which we enjoyed. The cabin itself is a basic older cabin but it was comfortable and the space was just perfect for our family of 4. We would definitely stay here again! We never went to town but it was close enough that we could have easily if we'd wanted to. The views are so beautiful from the back porch and by the river, we had no desire or need to leave at any point. "

Perfect Setting - 5 out of 5 stars

"We truly enjoyed this cabin on the Blue River. You feel very secluded, but yet you are very close to everything you need. The Mountain View is amazing. We saw several Mule Deer, Fox and a Moose. They actually walked right through the front the front lawn. The blue river is very pretty and listening to it is very relaxing. The sun shines on the mountains in the morning and create back lightning at sunset. I would stay there again and I would recommend it to my friends and family. Three of the deer crossed the river and the moose on a different day also crossed the river. It was really cool to watch natural nature happening within a few feet or a few yards away. Awesome"

The Best EVER! - 5 out of 5 stars

"We absolutely loved our stay at this cabin and would recommend it to anyone and everyone considering a trip to Colorado. It was secluded, but also literally four minutes from Target, a fabulous grocery store, and so many wonderful restaurants. Frisco is an adorable town only ten minutes away, with tons of cool shops and restaurants, and Breckenridge is a quick 20 minute drive. What more could you ask?! We spent quite a bit of time at the cabin during our stay, simply enjoying the view from the porch and walking around the property, then cozied up near the wood-burning stove in the evenings. We're already trying to figure out when we can return! "

Beautiful property with the Blue River flowing through the front yard. - 5 out of 5 stars

"Comfortable house with amazing views of the mountains and Blue River. We saw wildlife every day...a moose on the first night, deer, families of ducks...a fox (I think). The kitchen is comfortable and I was able to make meals easily. The front deck was a comfortable place to have breakfast and dinner. It is close to the Silverthorn Outlet malls, Target and many grocery stores. Tons of outdoor activities are close by. The only thing that wasn't comfortable was that the hot water heater must be very small. Only enough hot water for 2 fast showers at a time but this didn't make the stay uncomfortable. I would definitely stay here again! The pictures don't do this house or property justice."

What a great place to stay! - 5 out of 5 stars

"165 Riverside was amazing. We loved being right on the river and seeing deer in the yard daily. My daughter spent a ton of time in the hammock right by the river.

Started and ended each day with by the river sitting in the chairs provided with the house looking at the mountains, and listening to the water run by. Beautiful sunsets over the mountain tops. House was very clean and well equipped. Location is great. 10 mins out of town and shopping and you feel like you're miles away in the mountains. Only one neighbor house visible (barely) and no one was ever there. And if they were I doubt you'd hear or see them. Would totally go back."
