Great find

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed our week at Deer Creek Cabin it is truly a heavenly nature retreat with million $ views. Not only are we fully relaxed but we were able to hike to beautiful waterfalls, horse back ride in the mountains and whitewater raft this week. Deer walked by the windows regularly and we even had a bear sighting. Amazing week, cabin and hosts! Already planning our trip back!

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5
I love this cabin. When I got there the cabin has a wonderful feel to it. I went up there with my dog for 2 nights. The cabin has everything you need including a full kitchen. It was very relaxing to have a fire and then to take a hot tub while it was snowing was perfect. I recommend this place to everyone. The owner was a pleasure to work with.

The cabin was perfect! My girlfriend and I (and our pup Hobbes) had a great vacation at WYSIWYG Cabin. It was close to several great trails and far from civilization (but not so far that a trip into Denver one evening was out of the question) which is exactly what we were looking for. We are from the deep south so the cool nighttime temps felt like late fall/winter to us and the wood burning stove was put to cozy use every night. We loved it so much we called David and arranged an extra night. Highly recommended and we WILL be back!

Great little cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this cabin. It was small and quaint for the two of us while on our honeymoon. The amenities were perfect for us. The scenery was great and very enjoyable! Great service too from the owner of the cabin. The cabin is about 10 minutes from the nearest highway and you would definitely want a 4-wheel-drive vehicle during the winter.

From the Owner

David fell in love with this secluded log cabin the moment he walked inside in 1999. He bought it on the spot. It has been a special place for him ever since. He is proud to say 99.9% of all folks who have rented it feel the same way, because most of them are repeat renters year after year.

Activity and Interests

Hiking: You are only minutes from great hiking trail heads in the Pike National Forest from Deer Creek Cabin. You'll see those signs as you drive to the cabin. We have hiked the Rosalie Trail, the Tanglewood Trail and the Meridian Trail, all close to the cabin.

Fishing: If you are a fisherman there is no doubt that you have heard of South Park. Even back in the old days, South Park fishing and hunting had reached the ears of people in distant lands. They came from as far away as England and Ireland to enjoy the plentiful bounty of the Park. South Park is the name and fishing is the game.

Skiing: You are 1.5 hours from Breckenridge Ski Resort. Take I-285W to Fairplay, then Hwy. 9 through Hoosier Pass to Breckenridge. You are also only 2 hours from Winter Park. Take I-285W East toward Denver to Conifer, turn right there to Evergreen to I-70 and follow a map from there.

Whitewater Rafting: We enjoy River Runners. Their Fisherman's Bridge office is located on the banks of the Arkansas River just 5 miles south of Buena Vista on US Hwy 285. With gentle waters, awesome scenery and exciting rapids this section of river offers something for people of all ages and abilities.

From the Owner

This cabin contains NO sheetrock. It is log inside and out. The floor to ceiling windows in the main room boast amazing views of the mountains and forest surrounding the cabin. The deck on 3 sides of the cabin is 8 feet deep giving plenty of room to be outside and enjoy the amazing Colorado atmosphere. Standing on the deck you are almost 9,000 feet up in the Rocky Mountains! There are 2 fabulous easy hiking trails on national forest within 10 minutes of the cabin... Meridian Trail and Tanglewood Trail.
