"Lil' Frying Pan Cabin" is a cozy, rustic tiny home in beautiful Wondervu, CO (near Nederland). This nearly 100-yr-old, pint-sized cabin has been lovingly restored with simplicity in mind. This cabin has been meticulously updated to honor a reduced ecological footprint. This cabin is the epitome of "glamper" - a form of camping with accommodation and facilities more luscious than those associated with traditional camping.
The cabin is decorated with quirkiness that you will fall in love with as soon as you step foot inside. The home has new windows and skylights, basking the home in wonderful natural light! The original roof was papered - now it is a beautiful copper. The loft bedroom is wrapped in local CO beetle kill pine - and, it's gorgeous! After a day of adventuring, sit back and relax on the leather couch while warming your toes by the fireplace. Linking you to a simpler time, you can use the top of the fireplace to cook your dinner.
The fireplace is one of the cooking options you have in this tiny home: fireplace, small toaster oven, hot plate, microwave, or outside grill. Cooking on the wood stove reminds us of staying at Grandma's - bring the kids, they'll love it! There is no modern oven/stove. Nor will you find a dishwasher or washer/dryer.
"Lil' Frying Pan Cabin" has modern plumbing with warm water, a comfortable shower, and flushable toilet (the original outhouse is for storage). There is great WiFi in this home. You will not have an issue streaming. We ask that our guests be mindful of electric power usage, making sure to turn lights and baseboard heaters off when not needed and/or leaving the cabin. There is a refrigerator and a TV with a DVD player and available movies (no cable). It's your chance to unplug and reconnect with nature and your loved ones (if you chose to bring them).
This home is one of four cabins... so while remote, you're not completely off the grid. It is also easy to assess off SH-74. The home is located approximately 45 minutes drive from the downtown Denver (30 minutes from downtown Golden / 30 minutes from downtown Boulder).
The home’s location is perfect for adventure enthusiasts and quiet escapists alike. There is easy access to hiking and biking trails (don't forget to pack your boots and bike(s)!), family-friendly open space, skiing at Eldora or paddling at Gross Reservoir. There is a picnic table for guests use.
Perfect for friends or family. This cabin sleeps four. There is a king size bed in the loft and twin bunk beds in a separate bedroom downstairs.
This home is professionally cleaned using natural, eco-friendly cleaning products between each guest stay.
Staying in Wintertime? While the property is on a School Bus Route / County-maintained and plowed roadway, during the winter months it may be advisable to have a 4WD vehicle.
INTERESTING FACTs: Wondervu is a settlement that was developed in the late 1920s-1930s by the Denver lawyer Otto Friedrichs as a vacation community for the working class. Population of Wondervu is approximately 2600 people. Elevation is 8632 above sea level.
Before you book, we would like you to know this is a fantastic home for you to get away from the rest of the world!
We are making the following obvious statements due to recent guests who have stayed with us but did not know what they were booking.
This home is located deep in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies. Although there is a great restaurant a few minutes’ walk from the home, the closest store is 30 minutes away. Please make every effort to purchase what you need prior your arrival.
Also, it is a low ecological footprint home.
In the winter, this home is warm and cozy, but you will need to bring your own firewood, and tend to your own fire.
