This cabin was built in 1902 in the historic mining town of Victor, Colorado, just one hour outside of Colorado Springs, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, with spectacular views from every window! There are 2 bedrooms and a loft, with two queen beds and two twin beds, one futon, and one sofa sleeper. One of the bathrooms has an old-fashioned clawfoot tub and the other has a shower. There is a small courtyard with a propane grill for you to barbecue, and two separate little sunrooms.
This cabin comes equipped with a washer and dryer and a 42' flat-screen TV with Direct TV satellite service. Did I mention the views of the mountains from evey window are spectacular!?
Go gambling in nearby Cripple Creek, visit the Mollie Kathleen Mine, or shop the antique stores (Nana's Attic, the Isis and Splendid Treasures) or the Victor Trading Company, where they make handmade brooms, candles, cookie cutters, postcards, and other items with old-fashioned equipment. You can hike through several trails in the Rocky Mountains, visit the local State Park, or go fishing at the Skagway or 11-Mile Reservoirs. Tour the High Spice Alpaca Ranch on 4-Mile Drive or the Stage Stop Llama Ranch on County Road 1 in Florissant. There is also the historic Hornbeck homestead and the Florissant Fossil beds to see there! Horseback riding and river rafting down the Arkansas River is one hour away in Canon City, as well as the amazing Royal Gorge, and the antique shops in Florence are just a little further. The ski resort of Breckenridge is 1 1/2 hours away and the drive is beautiful! The North Pole Amusement Park, Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, Prehistoric Dinosaur exhibit and the Off-Leash Dog Park are all on the way to Colorado Springs down Hwy 67.
There is too much to do and see! Easy access in all directions. **Two of the roads toward Canon City are recommended only for four-wheel drive vehicles (Phantom Canyon and Shelf Roads), as is the Gold Camp Road toward Colorado Springs. However, the scenery is gorgeous along these roads! Attend Donkey Derby Days in June, Gold Rush Days in July, or Victor Celebrates the Arts on Labor Day Weekend.

We live in New Mexico, just outside of El Paso, Texas, where the Army has stationed us at Fort Bliss and we have a small alpaca ranch (unregistered rescues).
My husband and I fell in love with this historic mining community in the Rocky Mountains and bought our own little vacation place to share with others when we are not in town!
We love staying at the cabin, where we can gamble in Cripple Creek, go to Skagway and 11-Mile Reservoirs, horseback ride in Canon City, shop the antique stores in Florence, or take a scenic drive down Phantom Canyon, Shelf Road and Gold Camp Roads. The entire town is a historic mining community and almost all the buildlings were built in 1899 and 1900. The views are spectacular!
