If you want quiet time in one of Colorado's most beautiful settings, you've got it! If you want close access to one of the best Colorado family sports/tourist areas--the Pikes Peak area--you've got it! Our cabin is located across Hwy 67 from Pike National Forest. Going south on 67 and 24, we are 20 minutes (14 miles) from Woodland Park, 30 minutes from Pikes Peak, 40 minutes from Colorado Springs. Going north on 67, we are 10 minutes from Deckers, 60 minutes from the Town of Sedalia, and 90 minutes from Denver.
Our newly constructed, 1000 sq. ft., lakeside mountain cabin is nestled among giant pines. Babbling Westcreek feeds into the lake. We have a beautiful view of Thunderbutte Mountain and Sheep's Nose popular climbing areas. Westcreek is an old mining town with a colorful history.
There is total solitude, with deer and fox in the woods, geese families, duck families, blue heron, beaver, hummingbirds, a red tail hawk, 3 golden eagles, 1 bald eagle. You must experience breakfast on the deck to hear and see the wildlife. The cold mountain lake reservoir is for enjoyment of the beauty, not for use by renters. Renters can fish and go tubing in the Platte River near Deckers and can swim in Woodland Park pools. There is every kind of sports and tourist activity nearby.
Woodland Park and Pikes Peak areas (Hwy 24) are a major attraction in Colorado: The Cog Railroad up Pikes Peak, The Garden of the Gods, North Pole amusement park, Ghost Town, Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds, Cave Dwellings, Rudy’s BBQ, Manitou shops, Cripple Creek’s old mine and train, Woodland Park Dinosaur Museum, Florissant Fossil beds, Divide Wolf Preserve, donuts and ice cream at the Donut Mill, the wooden fort 'Play Park above the Clouds' behind McDonalds on Gateway School property in Woodland Park.

The cabin is new construction, fresh smelling and clean. Two bay windows, a slider, and other large windows provide awesome views from all rooms towards the lake. The master bedroom with private full bath has a dual control, Sleep Number queen bed. The daybed room sleeps two on twin mattresses and offers a computer with high speed internet. The bunk bed room sleeps four on twin mattresses, no adults or older teens on top bunks. A second full bath is available. The living room provides a wood burning stove with logs, DVD player for a TV screen, a group seating arrangement for conversation, cards, games, and puzzles, and a reading area by one of the bay windows overlooking the piney woods and lake. The kitchen bench table seats eight in front of the second bay window overlooking the lake.
On the three-sided deck there are panoramic views and an eating table. Beside the deck is a grill. Under the giant pines you can enjoy an extra-long picnic table. You can walk 300 feet up the dirt road to a lakeside grill and picnic table. The beaver dams are at the bridge. We are close enough to everything, yet far enough to be away from it all, truly a cabin to replenish your soul.

I am a grandma who loves the quiet beauty of this property, while living most of the time in Castle Rock CO.
I wanted a mountain lake cabin and found one that surpassed my dreams in scenic beauty and peace and quiet.
I love the views from the deck and the glory of nature out my window. Yet I am close to civilization, many tourist and sports attractions. The best of both worlds.
