About Jila

We love outdoors and the beautiful area of Cascade-Chipita Park nestled at the base of Pikes Peak. This area is one of Colorado’s premier family vacation spots. There are bountiful activities such as hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding, mountain climbing, swimming. Summer is an exciting time to vacation along Ute Pass. Local mountain towns host festivals such as Territory Days, Donkey Derby Days and Green Mountain Falls Bronc Days. Step back in time and explore the rich history of the area with tours of Cave of the Winds, Manitou Springs, and gold rush boom town Cripple Creek.

Jila purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Jila chose Colorado Springs

GREAT LOCATION, WONDERFUL VIEWS, PIKE NATIONAL FOREST, CLOSE TO CITY AMENITIES, LOTS OF ATTRACTIONS AROUND; QUIET AND PRIVATE PROPERTY. We are very close to Green Mountain Falls, an art community with summer Arts Festival, workshops, cooking classes, and special events for children. Tons of hiking trails, and the fishing is always good in the lake with its signature Victorian gazebo and a fountain in the middle of the lake. Summer concerts, weddings, antique car shows, and other activities are numerous, and the Pantry is world famous for breakfast! The retreat is uniquely situated to enjoy peace and quiet, but located only ten minutes drive from Woodland Park, and only 20 minutes from Colorado Springs. Discover Pike's Peak Region, with all its attractions, is at your door!

What makes this chalet unique

This is a great property if you love the mountains. The location is ideal: between Woodland Park and historic Manitou Springs. The photo opportunities are endless. There are numerous activities just minutes from our retreat such as biking, fishing, hiking, museums, dining, gambling and the hot springs just to mention a few. You’ll find the local residents are friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Such a cute, cozy place with a breathtaking view of the mountains! Seven of my friends and I stayed for 3 days and we loved it! It's not very big but it definitely did the trick with no complications at all (with 8 people). We were in driving distance from a couple towns with restaurants and shops so we got to enjoy the beautiful nature and the hot spots.

A Wonderful Retreat, Great Location and Views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Rocky Mountain Retreat this year. The house was as described, great beds and mattresses, everyone had a good sleep every night including grandparents... Kids loved the bunkbeds and toys, books and movies available at the property. We had most of our breakfasts at the property on the deck. We had lunches on the lake less than a mile away from the house, a short walk along the Fountain Creek. Kids had a good time on the playground by the lake. There is a community heated pool nearby. It was not big, but good enough for our children. We did a lot of sighseeing and visited Santa's Workshop amusement park a few miles away. Lots of fun!

We enjoyed s'mores around the firepit on the deck and had a BBQ night a couple of times.

Our family is very greatful and will be happy to stay here again and visit this wonderful area again next year.

Idyllic Spot

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful find! We loved everything about our stay at Cascade Mountain Retreat. Quiet location with fabulous views from the decks. This cozy 3 bedroom cabin is located just minutes from Colorado Springs yet when you are there it feels like you are worlds away from civilization. Deer and elk were frequently spotted right outside the cabin. We also saw a family of foxes. Best of all were the views, we could have sat and stared at the mountains the whole time! Truly picturesque and perfect in every way.

Extremely well-appointed and perfectly maintained home with every convenience at our fingertips. The cozy living room and the fireplace was very much appreciated after a long day of hiking, and the gas grill was much used. Although we did not have much time for viewing, the flat screen TV upstairs was a bonus, and the wi-fi connection also was excellent. Julia was an outstanding host and have thought of everything to make their guests comfortable. Would definitely recommend to friends and relatives.

What a Wonderful Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Rocky Mountain Retreat was a wonderful spot to stay. Location was awesome: a short walking distance to Green Mountain Falls where you can find some great restaurants on the lake, let kids play on the playground by the lake or fish there if desired. Pikes Peak Highway is less than a mile away. Colorado Springs, Garden of the Gods and other attractions are just a few miles away.

Everything was clean and ready for our arrival. The log beds, comfortable leather furniture, elk lamps and deer heads added to the unique ambiance of this Colorado mountain retreat.

The view of the mountains was beautiful. the weather was great and we enjoyed coffee and snacks on the large deck while admiring the view.

Julia was a wonderful host and very accommodating. She provided all information ahead of time. It allowed us to plan and enjoy our vacation thoroughly. It is one of the best places I have ever stayed and look forward to staying here again.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location to forget about your everyday life! Very quiet peaceful and relaxing for all ages. Property is perfect for family hikes down to the Fountain creek, exploring and collecting pine cones. Fire pit in backyard helped us to make the perfect s'mores! House was well furnished and equipped with everything we needed for a pleasurable stay. Quick drive down the road to beautiful views of Green Mountain Falls Lake and Pikes Peak. Would love to return in warmer weather to explore this location further. We saw snow 2 different times and with the aspen trees in full color it was beautiful. We took a trail along Fountain Creek to the lake with a bunch of Moms-N-Paps local restaurants surrounding the lake.

We also went into Manitou and rode the train (cog-rail).

We saw 5 deer, a fox, several ground squirrels and chipmunks and several different types of birds by the property.

The cabin again was clean and made us feel right at home. We hope to return in the near future. Highly recommended property for a family vacation.

Owner is dishonest & unreasonable

  • 1 of 5

Do not stay at a place owned by this individual. She will cheat you out of a portion of your security deposit for whatever reason she can think of. In my situation, I arrived after the regular trash day and departed before the next regular trash day. Her instructions specifically said NOT to put trash out ahead of time because of wildlife. Well, I followed the instructions and was then charged for trash removal. As an owner of a property management company that manages more than 1,300 units, I find her actions absolutely appalling! To make matters worse, the owner lied in the post rental paperwork about the condition the property was left in. Specifically, she stated the fireplace was used and it was not and she knew it was not and acknowledged as much in an email. Anyway, do yourself a favor and stay away from any property this individual owns. It's better just to steer away from people who are dishonest and willing to cheat others.

Owner's Response: The guests 3 families with a bunch of kids left the property with a garage FULL of TRASH. Only a small trash removal fee 1/10 of the deposit was charged. Regular trash service is provided. Please use it. They also left the property wide open with a key thrown by the front door... It was very disappointing. It makes you wonder how he can manage 1300 units if he cannot lock up just one property.... We do not deserve a review like this one..

Great Location; Accommodations Fair

  • 2 of 5

Property as described. Lots to do in the area. Vacationed with 9 and did well.

A few comments: Limited cell service. Outdoor property un-kept and not mowed. General supplies, trash bags, dishwasher and laundry soap very limited. Renters beware: owners may and did keep $ from deposit for baths not clean (untrue). We left the property as per the contract. No recourse; at owners mercy.

Owner's Response: The property was surrendered in unacceptable condition. A very small amount (1/10) of the deposit was withheld to compensate for cleaning services. We cannot provide supplies for 9 guests for one week. We mow the grass once or twice a month.
