Hygge Chalet

Recharge amidst the serenity of the Hygge Chalet, a sustainable A-frame nestled in 3.5 wooded acres at 9000 ft in the Rocky Mountains. Inspired by the Danish concept of hygge, this eco-friendly retreat offers an outdoor Finnish steam sauna, two decks with stunning views, and a cozy vibe enhanced by a Norwegian gas fireplace. Recognized as a top 10 Colorado Airbnb, the chalet features luxe beds, a private trail into the National Forest, and proximity to various outdoor activities. With a curated blend of Scandinavian design, the home provides a tranquil escape for exploration, game-playing, hammock lounging, and memory-making. Strict fire regulations apply, and winter visits require AWD or 4X4. Internet is via a Verizon LTE hotspot, encouraging unplugging, and the elevation at 9,000 feet may require acclimation. This intentional retreat promises a rejuvenating experience, encouraging guests to unwind and connect with nature.

notable trail is the Geneva Creek Trail, known for its wildflowers and scenic beauty as it
winds through the Geneva Creek Valley.
Mountain Biking
In addition, Grant offers a diverse and exhilarating mountain biking experience for riders
of all skill levels, from novice to expert. Novice riders can explore scenic beginner-
friendly trails such as the (6 mile) Geneva Creek Trail, which winds gently through the
Geneva Creek Valley. For intermediate riders looking to challenge themselves, the
Buffalo Creek Trail System provides a network of single-track trails with varying levels of
difficulty, featuring big descents, technical features, and forested terrain. The Buffalo
Creek Trail System offers a variety of trails with distances ranging from a few miles to

Fishing
For fishing enthusiasts, prime fishing access can be found along the South Platte River,
particularly in areas near Grant and downstream towards Deckers. The river is
renowned for its abundance of trout and offers both wading and access points for fly
fishing. Mentioned earlier, nearby lakes and reservoirs provide opportunities for fishing
from shore or by boat, with species such as trout, pike, and Kokanee Salmon available

for anglers to pursue. Kokanee salmon are a unique species of salmon that are native
to the Pacific Northwest and parts of western North America, including Colorado. They
are known for their vibrant red coloration, particularly during the spawning season, and
their landlocked habitat in freshwater lakes and reservoirs.

One of the unique aspects of kokanee salmon is their life cycle. Unlike their ocean-
dwelling relatives, kokanee salmon spend their entire lives in freshwater environments.
They spawn in streams and rivers, typically in the late summer or early fall, before
returning to deeper waters in lakes or reservoirs. This landlocked life cycle distinguishes
kokanee salmon from other salmon species. Great fighters and excellent table fare,
biologically speaking, Kokanee salmon are also a beautiful, evolutionary wonder.
