Moose are seen by about 50% of our guests.

This fellow was spotted on a walk around the neighborhood in late September 2016 when the aspens are changing. The dory 'lakes' are a series of small ponds (7 of them) that are surrounded by brush. There are some walking trails around them. This is actually looking out over one of them that is in the brush behind the moose.

  • Ground Floor Bedroom 1
  • Ground Floor Bedroom 2
  • Loft
  • Garage Loft (AVAIL SUMMER ONLY)
  • Living Area Sleeper Sofa

  • Clean, cozy, no pretentions
  • Lots of room inside and on large deck and sunroom and 4 acres of level forested property.
  • 5 mins to parks and rec center with indoor pool.
 
The Dory Lakes cabin has been owned by its Texas owner as her retirement home for years now.  The thing is that she hasn't retired yet(!), so she is offering her home for the use of SkyRun guests.  This is the perfect unpretentious cabin/mountain home.  Certainly not the luxury you would find on the slopes of Aspen or Vail, but ideal for a small group or large extended family who want an option in the mountains on Colorado's Front Range.
 
Starting outside, there is a 2-car garage that you will have the use of and a paved driveway (the road getting in is dirt, but level and very well maintained year-round).  There is additional parking for 4 more cars and the home is on 4 acres of forest to have as your own -- unless you count sharing with the moose, fox, deer, elk, squirrels and the occasional bear and coyote (who stay away during the day).
 
As you drive up past the garage, the first thing you'll notice is the covered bridge walkway between the over-garage 'kids bunk room' (summer only, not heated in winter) and the large deck and sunroom attached to the main home.  The bunk room is primitive and has an old pot-bellied stove in it for heat and a space heater. The "bunks" are a twin bed, and a futon (that can sleep one, or two if you want to be cozy).  It's best used in summer or for older kids that are comfortable around a hot wood stove.  In the summer, all ages will enjoy the safety and seclusion of their own bunk room.
 
You enter the main home through a large sunroom with a card table and 2 easy chairs for relaxing while looking out the windows that surround you into your personal forest and the mountains beyond.
 
Entering the home, you'll step into a large living area with wood stove, flat panel hdtv (no local cable, only roku/netflix) and a (sleeper) sofa.  The ceiling is over 20' tall looking up to an overhead loft.  There is a separate dining area and the large kitchen with counter in this main living area.  It may be 'rustic,' but the appliances are modern...  let's not be TOO rustic eh? ;-)  The kitchen has its own door to the deck where you will find a large dining area with a brand-new fire pit and a gas grill for your outdoor cooking and relaxing pleasure. 
 
The full bath on the main level has a full-sized washer/dryer, handy if you will be staying with us for a week (which is highly recommended to be the minimum 'chill' time period).  You're most likely to see a moose in your yard if you stay with us for a week. ;-)
 
Completing the ground floor are 2 bedrooms, one with queen 4-poster bed and the other with a double and a twin-over-futon that can be a reading sofa or another comfortable queen bed.
 
Heading upstairs, there is a loft with a nice working desk (best view in the house) and a futon sofa that can sleep 1 or 2 people very comfortably.  There is a large closet on this level too.  There is little privacy in the loft, but it's a nice and large sleeping area for kids or two adults who know each other really well.  There is a full bath on this level also and a large master bedroom with king bed and beautiful quilt.
 
The home is heated by a modern forced-air gas furnace that keeps it toasty warm all year.  There is a wood stove (living room) and potbelly stoves in the dining area and kids bunk room for extra heat or fun.  Firewood is supplied (you build the fire...).

Great Mountain Escape for an excellent price

Review Submitted: 8/6/2017

Ideal setting in a beautiful wooded neighborhood...Central location to many attractions to list.

Home is very comfortable and has everything you need to cook meals for a large family. Comfortable beds with bedding to match. Place was very clean and everything was functional as would be expected.

Thanks so much for your review, Brian. We're glad that the location of the cabin and its comfort worked well for you. It is a nice place for a get away.

Perfect for a 3 family get together. Be prepared - it is a bit of a drive everywhere, but it is nice to have a quiet, woodsy area.

Susan was a kind and gracious host. She was responsive and thoughtful. Additionally, she kindly recommended events and attraction sights nearby in an effort to ensure that her guests had a enjoyable stay. The location is also ideally situated near various parks, as well as an old mining casino town. While you're in a quiet area, you can make a 30 to 40 minute trek for "town action."
Thanks, Elizabeth! We're glad to hear that our cabin worked well for you. You were a gracious guest.

This place was great for our family Christmas and relatively affordable. We had everything we needed and Susan responded within 10 minutes when I had a couple questions. The driveway and the deck were not shoveled well at all and we had to do most of this ourselves. It had not snowed for about 1 week and a good portion of the driveway was ice. Overall it was a nice place to stay and I would go back.
Sam, we are very sorry about the snow not being removed properly. Thanks for letting us know. We are working with our snow removal company to ensure things are better for future guests.

Barry was very helpful and so accommodating. Our trip to Colorado was a once in a lifetime trip for my 3 cousins and on our way to Colorado, our 1st house cancelled due to damage from a previous guest. Airbnb scrambled and were extremely helpful in finding another house. We then found Dory Lake. As we were the first to rent this property, Barry was worried that it would not be done. We loved the house when we arrived and it looks just like the pictures. New furniture arrived halfway through our stay, although we liked the original furniture, and the team (Tim and Rachel) worked quickly and efficiently and it did not disrupt our day at all. The house is beautiful, the grounds are peaceful and we found Black Hawk to be a great home base for all of our day trips. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly, helpful, and made us feel right at home. The house would be perfect for large family gatherings. Thank you again Barry!!
