An authentic Colorado log cabin built in 1972, our 2 bedroom cabin sleeps up to 6. Private hot tub & deck, ping pong table in the sun room, gas fireplace, wifi, games, old books & tons of charm. The master bedroom has a Queen bed & guest room includes double bed plus bunk bed. The ski shuttle stops RIGHT in front of the house. Plush, cozy, a perfect getaway for couples, families and friends. Dog friendly so you can bring your well behaved pup. This is the funky cabin you're looking for!
This cozy yet spacious Log Cabin is located right in the town of Winter Park. It sits on the mountain side, and there is a ski shuttle pickup at the end of the driveway!
Bear Claw Cabin is fully furnished, cozy and inviting. The wood logs are all original (cabin was built in 1974) and it's very cool and campy but with modern conveniences including WIFI, cable TV/DVD,VCR, a private outdoor hot tub, gas fireplace, washer and dryer, dishwasher, all kitchen cooking accessories. We also have some interesting books to peruse, some old school games and some puzzles. (We apologize in advance if there is a missing puzzle piece or two. We don't count puzzle pieces after each guest stay.:)
The main floor/living room area is open and comfortable. Great for playing board games in front of the fire, watching movies/tv, or just hanging out and reading. The bedrooms are both upstairs and include a Master bedroom with a queen bed, and a guest/kids room with a wood bunk bed and a double size bed. NOTE: the configuration of the cabin has the bedrooms upstairs and the bathroom downstairs. (Just another one of those cabin quirks.) We installed an additional handrail on the staircase to make it easy to navigate but just so you're aware sleeping quarters are upstairs, bathroom is downstairs.
Being that it's a real log cabin the stairs aren't 100% uniform in size! The handrail is there to help navigate it but just to make you aware in case you or one of your loved ones has difficulty going up/down stairs.
There is a sunny game room downstairs with a ping pong table (paddles and balls included) and this room leads to the outdoor porch which includes a gas barbecue and an outdoor hot tub. The hot tub is surrounded by a 6 foot fence for privacy. You get a wonderful view of the stars from the hot tub and its available year-round for your enjoyment. NOTE: The hot tub is professionally cleaned and maintained to provide a safe, clean soaking experience but the tubs jets just aren't what they once were. If you set expectations for a well maintained, relaxing soaking tub you will be quite pleased!!
We also installed a deck on the back in 2015 which offers a great space to relax surrounded by aspen trees. We used TREX decking materials to protect against splinters. The deck is a really cool area to hang as its on the back of the house with a mountain view.
NOTE: We just want to express that this is an authentic, 1970's log cabin and as such has a few quirks! Most guests quickly get used to and enjoy it and the cabin has seen many repeat guests over the years but we want to make sure you are aware of some of these "quirks" before booking this property to set expectation. We like happy guests and want to make sure our property is right for you!! For example: There may be weeds / dandelions on the brick pavers near the barbecue off the deck especially in the summer time as we try to avoid spraying Roundup etc. unless necessary since we are pet and kid friendly. And sometimes a deck chair may be a little loose or a light bulb may have burned out. (We leave extra bulbs inside just in case and the cleaners check after each guest but things happen!) We also encourage guests to leave their unused but still fresh condiments (ketchup etc.) for the next guest to enjoy rather than throwing them out / causing the next guest having to run to the grocery for those items and inevitably throwing away most of them. The pantry may have sugar or cooking oil and/or other non-perishable items from previous guests for future guests to use. (Again we could throw these items out but we find most guests appreciate having those things available to have one less thing to have to buy at the store. We of course dispose of all expired items but non-expired items like these will likely be in the cabin when you arrive and are yours to utilize as you wish.
In addition - as a family friendly rental unit things do on occasion wear out and we try our best to fix items that come up but we may miss something on occasion. If you have ANY questions or concerns we encourage you to call us right away so we can assist! We want you to enjoy a wonderful stay, hopefully leave a nice review (negative reviews really bum is out:( and hopefully come back and stay with us again!! Just please keep in mind that it's a cool old cabin that's been made modern (but with older cabin quirks) and you'll have a ball!!
NOTE: Recent updates:
7.10.17: Replaced window curtains with new red (cabiny-color) curtains, glued down that pesky strip on the side of the ping pong table that was coming loose, replaced ping pong paddles and replenished the supply of ping pong balls, replaced portable fans for bedrooms and hung up soft tip dart board in game room.
