Rented blindly but as frequent visitor to Colorado. Idaho Springs area not well known to me but I knew about what was near. Found Cabin (Call of the Canyon) on net. Mary met us upon arrival. Very gracious hostess. Made sure we knew every quirk about the cabin and we did not see her again. She was and is available... More

My husband and I spent two nights early June. Mary was wonderful communicating with us prior to our arrival. She greeted us and provided all the necessary information regarding the cabin and the area. She gave us complete privacy after that. The cabin had all the amenities one could want. it was comfortable and quiet. We especially enjoyed the creek... More

Going back twenty-some years I've stayed at Call of the Canyon Cabins several times. The cabins are right on West Chicago Creek and sit next to the Arapaho National Forest. Plenty of spots to relax near the stream or in the woods. It's close to attractions and great hiking. Isolated, but convenient to everything. The cabins are beautifully built with... More

Mary, the host welcomed us and she got us acquainted with our cabin which was nice. The cabin had a few problems like the toilet didn't flush properly and the bathroom was very small to move around in. The cabin has no TV or land phone and our cell phone had no service. I can appreciate a relaxing vacation without... More

We arrived at the cabin around 5 PM and were amazed at the beauty of the surroundings. The canyon wall above Chicago Creek was breathtaking. Mary, our gracious host welcomed us and allowed us to take it slow and get acquainted with our cabin. She offered help and was available should we need anything, but we found everything we needed...

My husband & I spent 4 days/nights this past week in one of the cabins. Although it wasn't quite what I expected, the cabin is well-equipped with pretty much everything you will need for an enjoyable visit. Mary, the owner, is very nice. I, personally, was looking for real "seclusion" from the hectic pace of life in the city, but... More

Both cabins were very clean and comfortable. The owner of this property is very considerate of your privacy but is more than helpful should you need something. We stayed for three nights and found many interesting sights in this area to visit during the day. Hopefully we will be able to visit again next year, as we all had a... More

Mary, the owner of the cabins, has thought of everything to make your stay relaxed, comfortable, and refreshing. At least this was our experience. Not only is the cabin cozy and warm, but all the materials are provided to create a fire, play games, play in the sauna and the river, etc. etc. This was the perfect romantic getaway for... More

My friend wanted to stay in a 5-star hotel, but I convinced him that to have a "real" Colorado experience we needed to stay in a cabin. My internet search for a "cabin near Denver" came up with Call of the Canyon and it was PERFECT. Especially for a guy who is used to 5-star hotels! It was rustic-yet-modern, immaculate,... More

We arrived at our cozy vintage cabin and made a crackling fire within minutes thanks to the firewood already arranged in the large stone fireplace. Mary (the owner) had not only laid out the fire before our arrival, but had placed numerous simple yet unique and thoughtful touches throughout the two room cabin. It was entertaining simply looking at all... More
