Overview

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!

About Judy or Linda

I'm a third generation native of Denver. I've always loved spending time in Colorado's mountains. Skiing, hiking, mountain biking....all the predictable and wonderful activities you'd expect. The best memories of all, however, date back to late 1960's / early 1970's family trips to some campy cabins along a stream in Estes Park. These were real log cabins, complete with original pine beams, knotty pine paneling, and pleasantly squeaky wood floors. They had big patios, bigger views, plenty of wild life and always the sound of a distant stream in the background.

Those memories faded over time as my wife and I raised our kids, built careers and did all that adult stuff. A summer, 2013 visit to the campy cabins of beautiful Jenny Lake Lodge in Teton National Park, right outside of Jackson, WY, brought back all of those memories. As we drove back to Denver, the decision had been made. It was just a matter of what, when and where. I was going buy a cabin and create the same sense of serenity I had experienced in Estes Park and at Jenny Lake Lodge.

Judy or Linda purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Judy or Linda chose Woodland Park

After countless listings, two realtors and what felt like thousands of miles on my car, I came across Echo Creek; a real log cabin complete with original pine beams, knotty pine paneling, and pleasantly squeaky wood floors. It had a big patio, a bigger view, plenty of wildlife and the sound of a distant stream in the background. As the Nelson's beautiful chapter on Echo Creek Cabin came to a close, mine began. Dreams really can come true!

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.)

Great Cabin rental!

  • 5 of 5

We met my sister and her husband here for 3 nights and had a great time! The cabin was the cleanest VRBO rental we have ever stayed at. The owners have obviously gone to great effort to make things convenient for guest (notes adjacent to controls....) and had everything we needed for cooking our Christmas dinner! The gas fireplace downstairs next to the television with Dish satellite made our relaxing day watching the Wild Card football games so much fun! We would definitely recommend this cabin to all our friends and family!

Cosy mountain cabin with room

  • 5 of 5

I echo the positive reviews already available about this cabin. Such a pretty setting, and the owners have thought of so many nice details to make the stay comfortable. It was a great size for the three of us, with each one getting a private room. Comfy beds and a starry sky through the window made for a great night's sleep. Meals prepared in the nicely equipped cabin kitchen were easy and enjoyable, and served on the spacious deck. It was so relaxing to enjoy the morning sun on the deck in the company of the humming birds. Deer also came around for a visit. We enjoyed walks nearby and had access to the services of a small town in Woodland Springs, about 20 minutes away. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the quiet, while having access to activities within reasonable driving distance. Thank you so much for sharing your special spot with us!

Log cabin in the valley

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was awesome. The cabin is down in a valley, and it was so peaceful and quiet. We loved sitting on the porch watching the hummingbirds, enjoying the scenery, and listening to the rain hit the metal roof. We drove countless miles down dirt roads winding through the mountains in a car with no four wheel drive, and had no problems. The roads are very well taken care of. I would highly recommend this cabin, you will not be disappointed.

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!
