The Dew Drop Inn in Peaceful Valley, Colorado is a darling cabin built in 1939 with modern electricity heat , appliances and plumbing, Water is Rocky Mountain delicious well water potable filtered 3 ways. Because is was built in 1939 when people we not as tall it's into ceiling height is a little less than 7 feet and the doorways among rooms are lower. So if you are very tall just be mindful to not bump your head.
The cabin has 2 steps into main room and from kitchen to patio. there are a few sets of stairs with sturdy railings. The steps down to the creek also have a sturdy railing but if one is frail with mobility and balance the cabin may not be the best choice for you.

This Riparian waterway nature reserve feeling is welcoming, cozy and the cabin is on the Middle St. Vrain creek at the refreshing altitude of 8,500'. Step back into nature viewing the magnificient beauty of St. Vrain Creek descending with a roar from inside windows or outside at many locations. There are many relaxing sitting areas. There are a few neighboring cabins across the creek with usually very quiet and private neightbors. And Peaceful Valley Rd. does have other cabins on it as it was originaly a Stage Stop in 1901 and then for many years the Peaceful Valley dude ranch was there. The Peaceful Valley Guest Ranch currently only rents a few guest cabins and does not have any other prior amenities. You can still take the short steep walk up the historic Peaceful valley Chapel and take in the stunning views from in front of the chapel. Please ask Host Maura and she will provide your directions.

When the moon isn't bright the stars are very visible from the front yard especially as there are few trees obstructing the skies and Peaceful Valley is away from big city light pollution.

Winter sports Getaway
We loved our stay at the Dew Drop Inn 103! Property owner, Maura was most helpful in advance of and during our stay. The property location was a Winter Wonderland for our stay. Conveniently, located to Eldora for skiing and Rocky Mountain National Park for sightseeing!

Went above and beyond
This exact spot in Peaceful Valley was always on our bucket list to visit. We were unable to book my cousin's place across the creek, so he recommended Maura's Dew Drop Inn. Maura re-opened her rental just for us and we can not thank her enough for making this happen for us. The week was filled with days of every season with the last day in full snow. Maura shared that it will be "like sitting inside a snow globe" and she was exactly right! Beyond beautiful. The place was spotless, comfortable and more than we expected in regards to hospitality. Side note, access to the Dew Drop Inn when there is snow was very easy with the driveway right off well plowed new roads.

Classic vintage cabin!
The appeal of this sweet cabin is its authenticity with knotty pine panelling & vintage countertops as well as its location with beautiful views, especially out the kitchen and sunroom windows. There are plenty of blankets and throws, so 4 of us slept comfortably with 3 on the large almost twin-sized sofas. There is not much room to prepare meals, so would suggest having things mostly ready to go, and pans could be thinned out and organized for greater ease of cooking, however this is very minor & did not take away from our enjoyment. The location was amazing and very quiet. We absolutely loved out stay.
