Florissant House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Enjoy the true feel of staying in the Colorado mountains. Relax in a private hot tub or sit outside on the covered wrap-around deck. While indoors enjoy the basement level den with bar area, flat screen TV and soft-tip dart board game.

With 3 separate stories everyone can have their own sense of privacy. Or get together on one floor to watch TV, cook a meal or hide out in the den. The top story consists of two bedrooms, one bedroom having a small TV/DVD player. The larger bedroom has a full size bed, while the smaller has two twin-size storage beds. There is a community closet to store one's belongings.

The main floor consists of the kitchen/living/dining room( 'great area'), master bedroom and bathroom. The living room area has a flat screen TV with satellite TV and DVD player. A huge remote controlled gas fireplace is a highlight to enjoy as you watch TV. There is a small breakfast bar and small dining table to enjoy your meals. Off the main floor, next to the kitchen is the entrance to the wrap around deck with a convenient gas grill and small bistro to sit at while cooking outside.

The master bedroom is very comfortable with plenty of storage and space. The master bedroom has a flat screen TV with satellite TV and is located right next to the bathroom for convenience. The bathroom is small but is newly remodeled with a tiled in shower.

The basement level consists of a den with a flat screen TV, bar area and dart board. It's a small but very enjoyable area to have a fun family evening. There is a gas stove on a programmable thermostat to keep the temperatures comfortable. A second bathroom is located next to the den for convenience. This bathroom has a tub/shower combination and a stacked full-size washer and dryer combination.

Walk out the garage door and hop into the small but inviting hot tub. The tub is designed to hold 3-4 people but much more comfortable for a couple. Sitting in the hot tub you can look toward the east and see for miles into the distance. Some of the best sunsets and sunrises can be viewed from this vantage point. With the covered deck right above, the hot tub can be enjoyed even in inclement weather.

There is an asphalt covered driveway that has two entrances and wraps around the house in a semi-circle. There are several different parking spaces, depending on specific needs.

Location! Location! Location! is so important and the 'Hummingbird' has it all.

The 'Hummingbird' is located just 30 miles west of Colorado Springs. Some of the main attractions in Colorado Springs are:

Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, and the Air Force Academy.

It is only 25 minutes to the small historic town of Cripple Creek, which now has casinos, hotels, nice restaurants, and the Butte Opera House.

Ten minutes from the 'Hummingbird' is the Fossil Beds National Monument and the historic Hornbek Homestead. The Fossil Beds has several hiking trails and a picnic area.

Barely one half of a mile east is the Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Refugee, which is almost within walking distance. Tours and programs are available upon reservation.

The 'Hummingbird' shares its property line with a 480 acre private fishing resort called 'Trout Haven', which truly gives it privacy. Breckenridge is an hour and a half drive for skiing in the winter and shopping in the summer, not to mention the beautiful drive there.

About The Owner

I have lived in the Colorado mountains for almost 20 years. I resided in the Hummingbird because of how comfortable my home is. Located right next to a private fishing resort, it has a lot of privacy for it's small acreage. I now have the privilege of working at the Resort since my early retirement from the Postal Service in 2009. I am now into semi-retirement hoping someday in the near future to be fully retired.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

What a wonderful experience we had at the hummingbird. We have rented many cabins in this area and none of them can compare. So beautiful and comfortable cabin. The location was perfect. Easy access yet very private. The cabin itself was beautiful inside and out with everything we needed. We were in such need of some RnR it was perfect. Would highly recommend. Kristine was such a warm and inviting person to deal with. THE BEST EVER

Wonderful Place

We had a wonderful experience at Hummingbird. Christine was very accommodating, and the house had everything you could possibly need. My dog loved running around the large yard, and my mom and I enjoyed drinking our coffee on the beautiful deck. I would definitely recommend

Tickled pink!

  • 5 of 5
Your cabin exceeded our expectations! It is obvious you've put a lot of thought into making your guests welcome and comfortable. We spent most of our days on the deck, watching the birds, chipmunks, and deer. The hot tub was great, as well. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay. We'll be back!!

Relaxing and scenic vacation.

  • 5 of 5
We would definitely recommend staying at the Hummingbird for couples and families. The location was ideal, semi quiet and secluded, yet a short 30 minutes drive to all the tourist attractions west of Colorado Springs. Deer and chipmunks were seen around the house on a daily basis. The house was well kept and clean with all the amenities as advertised. Our two little dogs spent hours each day on the deck , watching the chipmunks in the trees. Our stay at the Hummingbird was a very enjoyable one. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Joyce, thank you so much for taking the time to give the Hummingbird such a wonderful review. I'm glad that the wildlife entertained your dogs for you. The deck is a wonderful place for pets to have some freedom and yet be close to you. It was great that you could share your stay with your family. I hope you can make it to Colorado again and do more sight seeing in the area.

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a birthday weekend, and we had an amazing time. Relaxing and welcoming, the home had everything you could possibly need and then some. The house is immaculately clean and has a great 'home-away-from-home' feel. Highly recommended, will probably come back for return vacations.

A beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I were looking for a couples getaway and we found the most perfect place. This home is located in a beautiful and serene location, neighbors are a little close but it was still peaceful and beautiful none the less. The hot tub was very relaxing and the views from the tub are very enjoyable. We had a wonderful time and would recommend this home to anyone. Most of the home has a very modern appeal at the same time it still feels like home. Very comfortable!
