Welcome to our 'Olive Branch' cabin in the woods.

If you are looking for that perfect get-a-way place you`ve found it! This is a true log cabin. Nestled at the edge of the woods with total seclusion. Enjoy spectacular views of both the San de Cristo Mountain Range and Pikes Peak 'America`s Mountain'.

The cabin is completely decorated in the woodsy Colorado decor with pure comfort.

You will enjoy all the comforts of home in this unique log cabin. It features 1-bedroom on the main floor with a queen size bed, 2-night stands, reading chair and a dresser. The living room, kitchen and dining area are all open on the main level. The large luxurious bathroom is also on this level. It has a separate shower and an antique claw foot bathtub for a relaxing bubble bath.

The open loft area over looks the living room and kitchen. The loft has 2-queen size beds, night stand and a 19' TV/DVD player. There is also 2 small cots with sleeping bags tucked in the loft nooks for young kiddos to camp out.

The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric range, refrigerator, microwave and all the essentials you need to prepare great meals. The living room has contemporary black leather furniture, a cozy wood burning fireplace in the corner. There is also a 48' flat screen TV with Dish Network and a DVD player in the living room.

Sit out on either of the spacious covered decks in the 4 over sized rocking chairs and enjoy the incredible views while watching the wildlife play. Spend your evenings around the open fire pit reminiscing memories and making new ones. You will find yourself star gazing the night away. After a adventurous day, soak your aches & pains away in the outdoor 4- person hot tub.

This is a great cabin for honeymoons, anniversary celebrations, family get-a-ways, hunting and fishing parties or just relaxing. Truly a great place to rejuvenate your soul.

About Kim

Thanksgiving of 2014 we purchased the Olive Branch Cabin after having rented it ourselves several times over the past few years. It is now 'home' where we love to walk, watch the sunrises and sunsets, and be in communion with God and the mountains and the deer who roam here. We think of the mountains of Colorado as 'God's country' and hope that others also find the peace and solitude here that we experience.

We named the cabin 'Olive Branch' because it represents the beginning of a vision we have to reach out to military couples who have experienced brokenness as a result of war. In the Genesis story of Noah and the Ark, the dove brought back an olive branch when the flood waters began to recede. The Olive Branch is therefore a symbol of hope... hope for a new future, hope for a new start in life, hope for a new beginning in our relationships with each other and with God.

And so we are Robert and Victoria and as you may have assumed, we are a military couple who has traveled and lived all over the world. Robert is an Air Force Chaplain and Victoria is a Presbyterian Minister. We have served congregations and military bases in Kentucky, Ohio, Idaho, Spain, Colorado, California, Florida and Texas. But our first love has always been Colorado! We are empty nesters now as we have two college-aged children and the four of us are stretched between three different states. And so one of the reasons we have this cabin is so that we can finally have a place to call home and to gather as a transient and geo-separated family.

Kim purchased this cabin in 2014

What makes this cabin unique

Many years ago we began to lead marriage retreats for Air Force couples and believe that God is calling us to do this in our future Colorado retirement. Until then we continue to serve God and country, enjoy visits to the Olive Branch Cabin, and spending time with our adult children. It is our hope that your time spent at the 'Olive Branch Cabin' will bring about hope, renewal and sacred rest.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a delightful cabin! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, couldn't have asked for a better place. Red Door vacations was wonderful, so easy to work with and the cabin was perfect. We would highly recommend it!

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying at this cabin. It was our first time to Colorado and it was a perfect central location for the things that we love to do. We arrived during the height of the wildfires and Red Door was great about keeping us up to date on the locations. I would highly recommend this cabin and the ground squirrels are very entertaining.

A great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We traveled here from Boulder, and it was an amazing change of pace for the weekend. The cabin is clean and well-maintained. It'd be great if the cabin had baggies and tin foil, but it didn't cause any real problems. Also, it'd be great if the CD player in the kitchen had an AUX cable so you could plug in an iPod through the headphone jack. I mean, you can only listen to Jack Johnson so many times.

We didn't have enough cellphone coverage to check our email or use Facebook, but we had enough to call our family after we got engaged on the front porch. We'll definitely be coming back next summer.

High Chateau is AWESOME! A mule deer was in the drive way to welcome us when when we arrived. We loved the clean coziness and style of the cabin. The photos totally reflect the cabin, even better in person. Sitting in the hot tub at night with the lights on the porch was so relaxing. A beautiful place to relax and enjoy all of the surrounding beauty. I would recommend this cabin to anyone. A perfect getaway! Can't say enough about it, you will just have to check it out yourself and see :-) Florissant National Monument is a must see. We ate dinner in Divide at McGinty's Wood Oven Pub. Very good! Cooking on the grill at the cabin was great also. A total joy at this cabin!

Thank you for sharing High Chateau!

A beautiful cabin with all the amenities, out in "the middle of nowhere"!

  • 5 of 5

We just LOVED this cabin! Secluded, quiet, so very well loved and taken care of. Everything that we needed was available. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom nice and large, with large, plus towels and an elegant vanity. The log walls inside and out really added to the atmosphere, as well as the hardwood floors throughout and large porches on the front and back. The furniture was high quality and charming. There are a few things we would have changed, although minor, I think it is best to mention them: 1) When we arrived there was dust/dirt under the sofa and coffee table in the sitting area, as well as under both beds, and a little on the clean dishes in the kitchen (other than that---everything very clean, thank you!) 2) The master bedroom door does not latch completely. 3) the showerhead waterflow was very slow. Both of our families give this place great reviews! Especially when you rent a place before seeing it, you never know what you might get. But this place was a definite winner! WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME and will definitely recommend this place to anyone who travels nearby! Thank you so much!!!

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

The beauty of the cabin was rivaled only by the view outdoors. We could not have stumbled across a better find than this one. Everything from the furniture to the appliances and dishes were top quality and far more than we expected.
