Quintessential, Box Creek Cabin at the Base of Mt. Elbert/Ideal Family Basecamp!

Located in: Twin Lakes
(Lake County Short Term Rental License#2019-56)

BOX CREEK CABIN is undergoing some changes currently and will be temporarily unavailable. PLEASE check back with us regarding availability through the following months.

We are excited to offer our guests an even better experience at the cabin in upcoming days! Thank you for your patience through this time. We truly appreciate you and your love of this property!

Box Creek Cabin is nestled in a quaint aspen grove, off a picturesque lane at the foot of Mt. Elbert; a quintessential cabin in the woods. The cabin is the perfect base-camp for a mountain vacation for a family or couple, offering unlimited recreation, peace and solitude.

Centrally located, the cabin is convenient to some of Colorado's favorite mountain towns. Leadville is 15 minutes away; Buena Vista, 25 minutes; and Aspen is a one hour drive over breathtaking Independence Pass.

The cabin is ideally suited for times of refreshing, offering its guests a place of restful quiet. Reading materials and a variety of board games are stocked at the cabin. In addition, kids have a safe area to let their imaginations soar outdoors. The front covered porch provides inviting seating to enjoy the expansive, peak-a-boo views of Mt. Massive, Mt. Elbert, Mt. Sherman and the Upper Arkansas Valley. We offer our guests two additional outdoor seating areas to enjoy the mountain views and the beauty of the flora and fauna that can be enjoyed right from the cabin.

Hiking is right out the door with spectacular vistas only a minute's walk away. A destination swing sits on 'The Point', a 10 minute stroll from the cabin, or drive there if you have already been hiking all day. There, one can take in a complete 360' sweep of the entire Upper Arkansas Valley and the Collegiate Peaks are front and center. Many of our guests have enjoyed sunrise and/or sunset from this location.

The main trailhead to Mt. Elbert is a four minute drive from the back door. Use the cabin as a base-camp for half a dozen other fourteener climbs close by. Halfmoon Valley and Creek are 15 minutes from the door with spectacular high alpine basins to explore.

For the anglers in your group, fishing at the Forebay and the Arkansas River are only three and five minute drives, respectively. Fishing is also popular at the Twin Lakes recreation sites or by boat on the lakes.

For those who enjoy exploration, Box Creek Cabin is situated on the edge of a rural, country neighborhood, with hundreds of square miles of undeveloped National Forest to the north and west that is convenient to exploration by foot or bike.

You will find beds for up to 5 adults, with a queen bed in the rustic elegance of the master bedroom and a twin over full bed in the cozy bunk room. Clean, crisp sheets will help provide for a good night's sleep on each of the beds.

There is auxiliary sleeping for one on a custom couch/daybed in the living room, as well as a pull-out trundle unit under the daybed to accommodate one more!

The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances and utensils, including:
two efficiency fridges, microwave, efficiency 4-burner stove with oven, toaster, drip coffee maker, all cookware, hand mixer, baking ware, roaster, crock pots, French press, eating utensils, glasses, basic spices, etc.

There is ample seating in the living room with two custom, comfortable, over-stuffed rustic swivel rockers that allow for conversation or warming by the fire.
