About Donna Brannan

Don, born and raised in Colorado married Donna, a New York Native over 33 years ago. Don has enjoyed the cabin since childhood, hiking, biking, skiing, hunting, fishing, climbing and exploring with his parents. We found a trail behind the cabin where a covered wagon had once tipped over. To this day old glass bottles can be dug up at this site. The trail opens to a large meadow and bubbling stream.

Why Donna Brannan chose Front Range Colorado

A family jewell passed on, now for others to enjoy as well. Colorado history abounds in the area. It is near Peak to Peak Highway which has the most beautiful sights available on the front range.

What makes this cabin unique

A huge feature is that the back door leads onto the Roosevelt National Forest. Hiking & mountain biking trails are feet away to springs and a nearby river. Wildlife prevails in the area; moose, dear and elk are common. Ghost towns and 4 wheel drive trails surround the area, and are a short drive away.

Relaxing and fun get-away.

  • 5 of 5

The property is in an ideal location for enjoying the beautiful state of Colorado. My friends and I appreciated the quick access to Nederland and the wonderful Golden Gate Canyon State Park. The Peak to Peak scenic drive would be gorgeous any time of year. The cabin's accommodations were comfortable and I hope to make it back for more visits in the upcoming years! Thank you Don and Donna!

Clean, beautiful, and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

The Dancin' Bear cabin was amazing. The pictures on Home Away does not do the property justice, it is even better in person. Donna was amazing, very nice and very accommodating. The property and the surrounding area is quiet, the perfect place to escape and relax. We will be back soon and would highly encourage you to stay at Dancin' Bear Cabin as well!!

Awsome getaway

  • 5 of 5

Found this beautiful location, and stayed at the cabin for a brief getaway. Once there, I enjoyed the place so much I extended the stay. Great hiking trails right out the bac door. Area very dog friendly. Out of the way but close to many amenities. I will definitely return.
