An average of 12-15 trains pass by each day on a 2% grade, including coal loads with mid-train helpers, intermodals, manifest freights, and Amtrak, operated by UP and BNSF. South Boulder Creek runs through the backyard, for fishing or just relaxing.

The cabin was built in 1922, and has been significantly modernized over the years.


Why settle for the monotony of a hotel room, when Cabin By The Tracks provides everything you need. (The cabin does not have broadcast TV, although tapes and CDs are provided, or can be rented in Nederland, 6 miles away). Cell phone coverage in the mountains is spotty; but there is a land-line in the cabin.


Stock up on groceries in Nederland (only six miles from the cabin), and settle in for a hearty home-cooked meal. Our kitchen and dining area have everything you need - except the food! A stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, dishes, utensils, cookware, and paper products are available for your use.


Yes, our cabin does have indoor plumbing, complete with a flush toilet, sink, and shower. We keep a fresh supply of towels and tissue there for your convenience. A washer and dryer are also available in the cabin for your convenience.

The cabin has three bedrooms for your family vacation or a reunion of close friends. One bedroom has a double bed with a handsome, natural log frame. A second bedroom has two single beds, and the third bedroom has one single bed.

Through the years, we have filled the cabin with reminders of Colorado's mountain lifestyle. At 8,500 ft in elevation; even summer evenings can be cool, and central heating and an electric fireplace keep the cabin warm for a cozy spring or fall getaway.


Rates are based on your length of stay, and the number of bedrooms you use. Click here for more information and current rates.

Our cabin is a wonderful place up in the mountains, out-of-the-way, but close to everything, and right on top of all the great Colorado Railroad action.
