Welcome to “Happy Daze” Come and stay at our super clean, cozy, funky, groovy “Blast from the Past” mountain cabin. We have enjoyed owning the original homestead and have carefully decorated it with a period-correct flair for the nostalgic feel of Grandma’s house with a little bit o’ funkiness. Of course we do have a few of the modern conveniences such as microwave, wi-fi and big screen HD ROKU TV.

Perfect day trip down Hackett Gulch or Metberry Gulch to the South Platte River. Local business can deliver and pick up rental ATVs for your enjoyment, or bring your own. Plenty of parking for your vehicles, trailers etc. We have maps at property of the riding trails.
Interaction with guests
We do live close by the property for any questions or concerns you might have during your stay. Here is a review of a prior guest
Away from it all-but not so secluded you need a 4-wheel drive to get there. Everything was perfect! We felt like we were home, yet still "on vacation". The little "Hippie Shack" is a wonderful property run by an extremely fantastic couple. Rhonda stopped by to make sure everything was to our liking and then left us to ourselves. At the end of the week another short little "how's everything going?" visit because she truly cares that we had a great time. Fire pit out back was awesome while looking at the mountains. What more could anyone ask for? Don't hesitate to book this property. We'll definitely be back!
Perfect home base while enjoying the unlimited various fun activities depending on your life style. Close enough to town but far enough away from hustle and bustle.
Fly fish on the world famous South Platte River noted as Gold Medal Waters fly fishing, only 9 miles north, at Deckers, or a little further, Cheeseman Canyon – immediately next to the world-famous WigWam Club.
Family friendly fishing is at Manitou Lake, 7 miles south, or Cheeseman Lake which is 15 miles north, both with picnic facilities available. For the hardy of heart, there is ice fishing galore – so many ways to catch trophy trout!

Other things to note
We are located in Westcreek, CO which is 14 miles north of Woodland Park. A short walk into the Pike National Forest yields natural beauty and solitude that you will not believe! Just a “sweet little slice of heaven”. Take a beautiful, quiet nature walk along the creek and view various beaver dams and wildlife like eagles, deer, elk, rabbits, fox, chipmunks and in the summer- Oh the hummingbirds. So much fun to watch! Across the road on 30 acre ranch you just might see the golden eagles and bald eagles that hunt the property.
Sit, relax and enjoy reading a book on the Sun Porch, or enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the original 1963 Rock-ola Jukebox, fully stocked with all your favorites from yesteryear.
