Looking for the ultimate in secluded romantic mountain getaways? Then please read on about this secluded cabin I found on 5 private acres you and your mate can have all to yourself! Last year my wife and I celebrated our 5th anniversary. When I began looking for that one of a kind romantic mountain getaway, I first thought we would go back to our original honeymoon spot near Estes Park, Colorado. The only problem was it was already booked so my hunt would have to continue. My wife and I are especially fond of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and the Rocky Mountain National Park area so that is where I began my search. I searched the internet until I found this cabin called the Bird's Nest near Red Feather Colorado. Little did I know this would be another fabulous hidden treasure tucked away near Red Feather Lakes, Colorado.
The cabin is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath cabin with a fully furnished kitchen. It also boasts a wood burning stove and a nice sized living area for two people. The living area is full of nice big windows to see the surrounding beauty outside. The cabin was immaculately clean and well cared for.
We could walk out from the living area onto a nice deck looking out over a beautiful mountain meadow. Just a few paces from the deck is an outdoor fire pit and picnic table (with firewood provided), perfect for getting cozy with your spouse by a warm fire in the evening. If you truly want to get away from civilization and just focus on your husband or wife, for a few days this is the perfect place to do it.
We really enjoyed having the whole 5 acres to ourselves with unsurpassed privacy. We walked the meadow several times, had lunch outside, had dinner on the deck, and enjoyed just laying out soaking in the sun. My wife enjoyed sitting out on the deck reading the Twilight books. The Twilight books were provided in the cabin and my wife seemed to enjoy them immensely.
Indoors, the cabin was brand new and very cozy and stylish. There wasn't a TV, but what better way to force a couple to focus on each other. In fact, No TV is the best way to go if your getting away with your mate. We enjoyed hot tea in the mornings. We even played scrabble next to a warm fire a couple of times in the evenings. We must have really been inspired, as you can see from the scrabble board on the left we used every piece, ending in a perfect tie. The scrabble game was provided in the cabin also.
If you want to do a little shopping, Fort Collins is about a 45-50 minute drive away if my memory serves me well. It is a pleasant drive and very scenic. If you do drive to Fort Collins, Colorado make sure you check out Bisetti's Italian restaurant. My wife and I went there for a fancy date. The food is excellent and if you call in advance you can reserve their Cubby room which is a private room that you can dine in by candlelight and the best part is the reservation doesn't cost anything! (very awesome, my wife couldn't believe it). Bisetti's is another one of those rare treasures you only stumble upon a few times in a lifetime.
The Bird's nest is truly a one of a kind escape. It is the perfect romantic getaway for an anniversary or any other occasion. Here are a few additional pictures from our stay from around the cabin and surrounding area. If you want the perfect romantic getaway in Colorado I highly recommend checking out the Bird's Nest cabin. Cabin photos are courtesy of Lone Pine realty.
