WONDERFUL OLD-FASHIONED COLORADO LOG CABIN, WITH A GRAND PORCH

Woodland Park Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Echo Creek Cabin is our old-fashioned log cabin, ideal for a peaceful Rocky Mountain getaway with all the convenient comforts of home. Relax in a hammock on the full length fabulously rustic log porch with the hummingbirds flitting about, or curl up with a book in front of the cheery red woodstove in the old stone fireplace.

A short drive from Colorado Springs to Woodland Park (which has most services and amenities), then 20 minutes north on scenic Highway 67 brings you to Westcreek: A pretty valley that was surrounded by, but survived the notorious Hayman Fire of 2002, with stands of grand ponderosas, a meandering stream that flows into a quiet lake, and songbirds and wildlife in abundance. This is a Colorado mountain retreat that is close and accessible to city amenities but rural in character and charm. It's a 1930's historic true log structure, with knotty pine paneling and woodwork throughout, completely renovated and made new, including new kitchen, lower garden level, plumbing, wiring, heat system and windows.

ALSO PROVIDED: Satellite TV, broadband internet, long distance telephone (cell phones don't work down in the valley)

The porch is one of the grandest around, built in the rustic log tradition, a great place to relax and listen to the rain on the roof. Main level, including living/dining, kitchen, bedroom and bath is original. 2 more bedrooms, family room with gas stove, and bath with shower finish out the walk out lower level. It's an amazing place, come stay awhile!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Enjoyed living at the cabin from January through November of 2010.



(John came to Colorado to direct the underwater repairs to the Cheesman Dam on the South Platte River. Teams of expert divers alternated cutting & welding work on the bottom of the dam, which is about 100 years old. Because they worked 200 feet under water, they spent their off-shift in a decompression chamber floating on the top of the reservoir, then were able to go back down and work another shift, over and over again for a month at a time. The repairs were critical to Denver's water supply.)

Wonderful Memories for all

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely wonderful place for a family reunion. Stayed here with people of all ages. The porch was awesome for the teens and 10 year old twins. We set up a little tent for the kids to sleep in at night and they thought sleeping outdoors was awesome...Despite the cooool am wake ups. It did get into the 40's at night and they loved it. The teenager slept in the hammock and watched the hummingbirds fight over hummingbird water. Everyone loved the feeder. Thanks for providing this natural entertainment for us. Even though the cabin was from 1930's it felt very modern with every convenience you could want. Warm showers, indoor toilets, Vermont casting stove for making smores and a grill if needed. We had brought some food with us and was glad to see that others had left some extras behind. (Much of what we had forgotten)It is a long way to get a gallon of milk (20 minutes)so plan accordingly when you head to the cabin for your stay. Loved the little notes telling you what switch did what. Loved all the deer running around. Loved the quiet!

Ideal Vacation

  • 5 of 5
It is a wonderful place to relax, rest and read. I went looking for a great place to retreat from the hussle and bussle of everyday life. The porch/deck was the ideal place to read and soak up the cool weather.
The hummingbirds were so fun to watch and they aren't afraid of people as they came very close to us and chatted about our invading their space. By the time, I left, they were very friendly.
The cabin is equipped with every thing you might need in cooking, reading and resting.
It wasn't far to the many sights that the area have to offer.
We want to return again and again.

Dream honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is perfect! They have paid attention to details to make your stay perfect. The porch is amazing and the gas fireplace downstairs is so nice to warm you up on a cook night! The area is so beautiful and peaceful. We were close enough to springs and Woodlawn to do a lot of sightseeing! Love it...will definitely be a yearly trip on out anniversary!

Cozy with History

  • 4 of 5
It's a cozy 1930's cabin with amazing history. The upstairs & downstairs spaces were both family friendly. The new build on the bottom floor has two bed and bath - great to keep family separated and together. The little notes tucked throughout explains what switches operated were helpful. The porch with care and thought of view are awesome. We experienced weather in the low 40's so the hammock & outdoor spaces were admired - but sadly not fully utilized. It was a very well stocked place with games, books & a fabulous dining room & breakfast nook. We enjoyed the stay.

Great porch

  • 5 of 5
Our son is a senior at the Air Force Academy, so for our last Parent's weekend we stayed here. There were only three of us and the dog, but we could have comfortably had more. The porch was the best part. I would drink my tea in the morning before the others were up and just take in the peacefulness and Hummingbirds. The sound of the rain on the tin roof was very enjoyable too. Everything was immaculate and we had everything we needed. I enjoyed reading the history of the cabin.
