Description

The Wolf Retreat Cabin getaway offers you the best of both worlds: tranquility and adventure. This 9200 foot high alpine wonderland is nestled among 14,000 foot peaks, endless wilderness (BLM lands) and breathtaking panoramic views of Twin Lakes. You can have it all in this Rocky Mountain haven!

Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic getaway, a family looking for a place to spend quality time reconnecting with each other, or just an adventurer looking for the ideal hop-off point, this magical, inviting retreat can be your cozy home for a memorable holiday.

The interior of this cabin is freshly and completely renovated with a rustic-meets-modern vibe. The cabin was designed and furnished to cater to all your vacation needs and comforts.

This cabin is one of four on the premises, so you may possibly meet some friendly, like-minded folks when you venture out of your private cabin. If you require extra space or would like total outdoor privacy, please reach out about booking additional cabins!

Notes

INTERNET/CELL PHONE COVERAGE
There is internet on-site, however, the location requires non-standard carriers which are not as strong as your typical internet. 15 Mbps download 0.5 Mbps upload. You should have full LTE coverage everywhere on the premises, regardless of your service provider. You will run into dead zones on your way here,.

CHECK-IN & FURTHER INFORMATION
Several days prior to check-in I will send you a link which contains an e-manual. In this manual you will find all necessary and relevant information relating to your stay. I have also included my suggestions for the best thing to do around Denver, my favorite restaurants, hikes, nightlife and much more!

HAVE A FURRY FRIEND YOU WOULD LIKE TO BRING ALONG?
Let us know a bit about your dog(s) and with a $75 per dog cleaning fee, we should be able to accommodate you. Sorry, two dog max. No cats permitted.

THE WILDLIFE:
There are animals around the premises including many deer, foxes, multiple species of raptors and other birds, armadillos, many rabbits, black bears, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, mountain lions, coyotes and more! You won’t see all of these at the cabin, but if you get out on the trails, you might get lucky…

MOUNTAIN LIVING
1. We are located just shy of 10,000 feet so please drink plenty of water to avoid altitude sickness.
2. Sometimes the wind kicks up to remind us of all the things we cannot control, but it usually settles down again within a few hours. You would be best not to leave belongings outside.
3. Wildlife is somewhat rare but has been known to wander through so please do not leave food outside at night.
4. Be prepared with lots of clothing layers so you can adapt to changing conditions. Mountain storms come and go quickly.

RESPECT
The Bear Den is located in a remote, tiny mountain town. Twin Lakes is pretty amazing; in fact, our family is a little apprehensive to share it with others. As visitors to the area, please think about your impact on our town and the small surrounding communities. Please respect full-time residents’ privacy and solitude. Follow Leave No Trace guidelines when visiting and recreating in the beautiful outdoors, and consider supporting local dining and shopping during your stay.

SMOKING
We like to keep our cabins as fresh as the outside alpine air. If you need to smoke, you’ll need to step outside to do so. There will be a $600 fine for any smoking inside the cabins

VIEWS
Unfortunately the lake cannot be seen directly out of the windows. However, if you are standing outside, you can see everything.

LOCATION & THE TOWN OF TWIN LAKES (Neighborhood)

Just outside the cabin you will enjoy stunning views of Mt Elbert – the second highest peak in the contiguous U.S. as well as of Mt. Hope, another of the tallest peaks in Colorado.You will fall in love with the clear morning lake views and awe-inspiring panoramic perspectives. These gorgeous mountain views create an amazing backdrop for the ever-changing light show, which offers glorious sunrises and mind-blowing sunsets. Occasional passing storms and rainbows add to the magnificent display of nature.

A mere two-hour drive from Denver, Twin Lakes is a remote historic mining town. Nestled deep within a National Forest at the base of the Rockies’ tallest mountains, yet close to the booming outdoor adventure towns of Buena Vista and Leadville, the town of Twin Lakes is an undiscovered gem. Our cabins offer the best views in the state of Colorado and immediate access to the wilderness just outside your door. You will gain an appreciation for the peaceful beauty of this untamed area like you have never known before.

We are accessible year-round. Our cabin is located on a county road that gets plowed when there’s snow; however, we still recommend AWD with good tire tread in the snowy months (generally December to April). Winter driving conditions on the highways leading to the cabin can change rapidly, so check the weather before heading out. Colorado has some specific winter driving laws pertaining to tire requirements.
