“Precious Forest”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2013

May 25, 2013 after stumbling upon the Precious Forest website then taking the trip up Bartlett Springs Road to see it for ourselves, we knew we had found our venue. Precious Forest catered our wedding and we had no complaints on the delicious food prepared. Ken Stritz was very hospitable and worked around any concerns we may have had to alleviate them all, and after the smoke cleared, the memories of that day at Precious Forest with my beautiful bride bring tears to my eyes. A huge thank you to Ken Stiritz and Precious Forest for coming through on everything we needed and wanted for our wedding day. My recommendation for anyone deciding to get married at Precious Forest is that you will not be disappointed. Sincerely, Danny and Veronica Dix

“Fit the Bill Perfectly”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2013

My fiance and I stayed at Precious Forest Mountain Chalet for 3 nights in early august. For what we were looking for, this place fit the bill perfectly. It's beautiful, secluded, private, and quite affordable. The main cabin in which we stayed was rustic and basic, but charming and cozy. There are many interesting and cool features of the cabin and property- the 100yr old wood/gas stove, the massive smoker outside, the beautiful upstairs patio looking down the valley towards the sunset, the outside hot showers- and so much more. There is not electricity, but they ran a generator for a few hours each evening just after sunset which was perfect by us. We had the entire property to ourselves, on which there is another smaller cabin, a few teepees/yurt style structures, and a few tents. Ken was a wonderful host, and overall I can't recommend this place highly enough for anybody looking to truly get away.

“Perfect, quiet cabin retreat!”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2011

Wow- Ken has a gem here with the Precious Forest! We found this property on airbnb and it looked wonderful, but the pictures don't do it justice. Beautiful drive up through gorgeous country, but climbing the hill up to the precious forest, we knew we were in for a treat. The cabin sits on a gorgeous, secluded, wooded property- and the main feature we thought was the quiet. My wife and I grew up in Colorado and we miss the quiet mountain air- Precious Forest gave us a wonderful dose of that. After enjoying the scenery for a while, we finally made cabin- just spectacular. Everything is just how I would love to have a cabin someday- rustic and authentic. Ken clearly loves this place and has put all the right finishing touches on. My favorite was definitely the old wood stove- love love love! Also, the old lanterns were perfect. Overall- this is what I call perfect wife camping... We grilled outside and cad a perfect campfire- cuddling and roasting marshmallows then went in to the very comfortable bed for a good rest. Highly highly recommend- thanks Ken for sharing the Precious Forest with us!

“Our wonderful restful return to Precious Forest”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2011

Once again, we were not disapointed with our visit to Precious Forest. We felt like we were returning "home" as the cabin is so welcoming. We had wonderful weather and so enjoyed the quiet evenings spent in the jaccuzzi. We loved the great company of our very gracious host: Ken and his wife Katie, as well as the boys. Though off the grid, we were not of want for anything. A truely majical experience, one that we look forward to repeating in the near future. We will be back.

“Peaceful getaway!”

Reviewed 15 Feb 2011

We spent the week after Christmas here and had a wonderful time. Getting to the cabin the first time was a little challenging, but by the second trip into town we were pros. The scenery is gorgeous and the cabin a true piece of architectural art! Ken was super friendly and readily available when we needed help with something. If you have small kids, I would recommend spring or summer stays-- lots of time inside frustrates the little ones when there's so much to explore but too cold outside.

Response from the owner Good Point. I will work on some ideas to make it better for children during extended indoor stays during cold weather. thank you kindly, Ken

“The Perfect Place For Playing House”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2011

My boyfriend and I have stayed in the Precious Forest cabin during the last two Valentine's Days. Ken is the nicest person I've ever met. He delivered delicious pancakes to us one morning, let us adopt his lab/husky puppy for the day, and was constantly available whenever we needed advice about where to go or how to get somewhere. They aren't lying when they say this cabin is romantic romantic romantic. There is an antique stove perfect for cooking pasta, a porch for watching the beautiful sunsets over the lake, and even a jacuzzi tub! And the price is unbelievable...never did I think we would be able to stay i such an amazing place since we both are college students and are poor...But on top of everything, it is super affordable. Thanks for everything Ken! Ps...if you go to Precious Forest, bring a playlist full of 1940s love goes with the atmosphere there perfectly. :)

“The Perfect Getaway”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2010

Precious Forrest was the perfect romantic getaway from start to finish! From the seclusion, to the scenary, to the snow ball fights, we had a blast! Ken was very helpful during our stay and made sure we had everything we needed and was eager and willing to help with any questions or problems we encountered. I would highly reccomend anyone and everyone to take a trip up to the Precious Forrest cabin and see for your self! Thank you Ken for a fabulous getaway, we can't wait to stay there again soon!
