About Karen Kochanski

I'm originally from Buffalo, NY but have lived in Longmont, CO for 12 years. I work as a physician assistant in Pediatrics at Kaiser Permanente. I love all outdoor activities especially hiking, snowshoeing, biking and swimming. I'm a fanatic for wildflowers and have never seen any more spectacular than the ones in the Snowy Range. I do photography and most of my best shots were taken there.

Karen Kochanski purchased this house in 2015

Why Karen Kochanski chose Centennial

I have been visiting the Snowy Range several times a year and decided it would be great to have a vacation property there. After looking for about a year, this house came on the market and I fell in love with it. The location is perfect and I enjoy having the full kitchen and beautiful deck.

What makes this house unique

Home away from home for about the cost of a hotel room in a spectacular location.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome cabin that's only 3 miles to the Snowy Range Ski resort. So cozy with the woodstove. Loved that it was stocked with amenities such as sugar, coffee filters, hot chocolate, pots, pans, etc. Karen, the owner is great and so helpful! We'll definitely be back in the future.

Cozy, accomodating house right on the edge of Medicine Bow Nat'l Forest

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I (and our dog!) stayed for a week in June. We loved loved loved the location, it was quiet and right outside the forest where we hiked and hiked everyday. Not a touristy hot spot, no crowds or traffic jams on the scenic drives! The house was very comfortable for 2 but would easily accommodate a larger group. The deck was perfect for grilling and eating meals while enjoying the mountain view. We would definitely recommend the place to anyone, but sadly the house is for sale, and I am not sure if it will be available to rent under the new owners once it sells . We can't wait to come back and see more of Wyoming!

Karen is a great host, she has everything in place, the whole house is equipped with everything you would normally have at your own home. This really was a home away from home!

We had such a nice time.

  • 5 of 5

Dad and I were quite comfy while we rested after exploring the national forest and other spots we came upon. We appreciated having access to the grill. Dad's quite the cook and made some wonderful suppers for us while I managed breakfast each day. The mule deer and antelope that you arranged for us to see in the front yard were a nice touch, too. :D

Snowy Range Ski Area
Car: necessary

Located just outside the entrance to the spectacular Snowy Range Mountains, visitors will enjoy scenic vistas and many recreational opportunities. Summer hikes feature fields of wildflowers, mountain lakes, scenic viewpoints and wildlife sightings. Countless lakes and streams are a fisherman's paradise.

In Autumn, the aspens turn spectacular shades of gold and red for uncrowded scenic drives and hikes. Many hunting opportunities are also available.

Winter puts the snow in the Snowy Range. Snowmobiling conditions are ideal and a family of four can ski for about $100. The Snowy Range Ski Area is only 3 miles away and features free skiing for kids <5 and seniors >70! Snowshoeing and cross country skiing are also available from your doorstep.

The town of Centennial offers several dining options, live music, bars and a convenience store/gas station <1 mile from home. Many more restaurants, cultural activities and shopping options are available in Laramie, less than 30 min away. The historic town of Saratoga on the other side of the Snowy Range features a free hot spring pool with changing rooms and natural river access. Note that the Snowy Range Scenic Byway is only open as a through road in summer and early fall. In winter, it is open up to the ski area and several access points to trails.

Visitors from Colorado's Front Range will appreciate access to the mountains without the crowds and driving hassles in Colorado. The Snowy Range is reminiscent of Colorado 50 years ago before the population explosion, pricey resort towns, and traffic jams. It's a wonderful place to enjoy nature and less than 3 hours from the Denver area.
