About Karen Meyer
We call the cabin "The Dairy" in honor of our Swedish Grandfather, William C. Tell - who made his living through a dairy in California. The Tell Dairy was always a wonderful place to visit. Riding on the tractors, watching the milking machines, feeding the cows and calves, and playing in the almond orchard were big treats. But more important was the family time, the reunions, the laughs and the jokes. Morfar (which means mother's father in Swedish) died in 1993. During the memorial weekend celebration, all of his grandchildren crafted a dream that we wanted to share a family home someday that celebrated Morfar's love of family; a place that we could come to and share time. We named it "the Dairy"and fictitiously described it as a log home, near mountains, a lake, skiing, golf, hiking and it had to be less than 2 hours from a major airport so we could all get there easily. The Dairy is a dream come true.
Karen Meyer purchased this Cabin in 2000

My family of 13 and two pups stayed at the Dairy over the Christmas holiday. It was a packed house, but so cozy and comfortable with amazing views!! Karen (owner) responded to all questions and concerns very quickly. I would highly recommend!
Amazing home with incredible views
This 3 level true log cabin was comfortable and cozy yet spacious enough for 5 adults to have adequate privacy. The house was well furnished, easily accessed from town, and had a huge deck with the most amazing views in Silverthorne. Karen was always available to answer any questions we had regarding our stay. We will definitely return to stay here in the future.
Perfect for intergenerational get-together!
We had such a lovely time in this beautiful cabin. It was a particularly good match for us because if how child friendly it was. Great communication with owners. We even saw a moose and her baby off the back deck!
Star Spangled 3 Night Stay
This Cabin was a rustic delight with all the amenities including beautiful views of the mountain range, the Blue River winding its way down the valley and just outside the back door lupin covered hills. We were 10 adults - all family, we had all we needed to prepare our meals in a kitchen fully stocked with utensils, dishes and coffee mugs. There was no shortage with towels and soaps either. We could all gather on the deck, at the dining table and even had space for privacy in this three story delightful log cabin.
We celebrated July 4th in the Rocky Mountains and brought home many wonderful memories with hopes to return to create many more. x
Love the Dairy! Relaxation in the extreme!! Great owner!!
We have spent time at the Dairy several times over the years, so when we wanted to getaway from the hustle and bustle of life, we knew exactly where to go!! The Dairy has room for everyone, it’s well appointed with plenty of blankets, cozy seats and privacy for the whole family! The views of the surrounding mountains, covered in snow, inspired our imagination and thirst for adventure! The house is so quiet!! A beautiful hot tub, huge deck and comfortable beds. Close enough to make an easy trip to town, and great hikes and walks. We had a wonderful experience with the owner, Karen. She is very responsive! A broken well pump could have derailed our stay, but Karen had it repaired in a few hours!! Unbelievable!! Don’t hesitate to book here when you need some time to decompress and relax!! Don’t be surprised if we’ve already booked - It’s our favorite!!
We love hosting your family! Thanks for loving the Dairy as much as we do. We always want to do everything possible to ensure that every stay is relaxing and equipped with everything you need to forget about the rest of the world ... to enjoy Summit County and our rustic cabin. Please come back again!
Our Stay At The Dairy
Check in was very easy and the beautiful home was just as described. The mountain views were incredible and we enjoyed snow on our first day in Sliverthorne!
Every effort has been made to make guests comfortable and Karen was available to answer any question that we might have had.
We enjoyed the hot tub and other amenities. Our two small dogs were with us and although they were afraid to go up and down the stairs, at least we knew where they were!
Our family consisted of six adults, four children, and two dogs and everyone had a place to play as well as sleep!
An unexpected problem with the water did arise but Karen was on it immediately and she did everything to eliminate the problem and get things back to normal,
Thank You Karen!
We would definitely stay here again!
