About Peggy or Mark

Mark and I grew up in the midwest, (Indiana and Michigan). With our love for the mountains, we decided Colorado was the place for us. After exploring the Cripple Creek area, we found much gold mining history here and a need for extra lodging.

Peggy had an interest in owning a bed and breakfast since the early 1980's. The dream came true in 2004 after two hard years of work and building the facility then Whispering Pines opened. Since then, we realized what a great location this really is and decided to share the building as a Vacation Home Rental.

Peggy or Mark purchased this house in 2002

Why Peggy or Mark chose Cripple Creek

Whispering Pines is the best Vacation Rental for the price in this area. Our 8700 sq. ft. property was built as a bed and breakfast in 2002 and opened in 2004, now a vacation rental. We can accommodate 16 adults comfortably.

With so many attractions within and hours drive or less, it is the perfect place for family vacations or company retreats. Our guests realize the value they receive when renting our place. We feature eight bedrooms with attached baths (most with hydrotherpy air bathtubs), a well equipped kitchen and laundry room, a huge wrap-around covered deck and the best mountain views in the area. Also, great hiking areas, gold mine tours and wildlife sightings, along with gambling and lots of restaurants just minutes away.

What makes this house unique

This building was designed and built by the owners with beautiful surroundings. It was built and designed as a B and B in mind but is an excellent vacation rental. This property is unique in a sense that most of the bedrooms have private attached baths with hydrotherapy air bathtubs. Three which have two person tubs!

We challenge any other vacation home rental in this area to have better mountain views than we have here and we also see the Canon City night lights from most of our windows! You will love the wicker swings on the covered deck too!

You will not find better value for your money for you and your family in this area.

Beautiful Views and Great service!!

  • 5 of 5
Being in the hotel industry I have high standards.... which Peggy and Mark completely blew away! We had reservations at another vacation cabin that fell through and at the last minute Mark was ready, willing and able to accommodate us! The location near the Cripple Creek Casinos was convenient, we had the choice of several suites and chose the Wildflower room...well appointed with attention to detail throughout the home. Mark obtained discount coupons to a fabulous restaurant as well as making our dinner reservations and supplying tasty recommendations! After a much needed soak in the therapy tub and a great nights sleep we were treated to a fantastic breakfast from Peggy featuring a fruit parfait, home baked muffins and an omelet to die for! Unfortunately we could only stay one night but we will be returning for a longer stay next time! Thanks Mark & Peggy for salvaging our trip and making it a memorable one. Marriott has nothing on you!

Great place hidden in plain sight

  • 5 of 5
Our family came from all over the US (East Coast to Hawaii) to celebrate my wife's 60th Birthday. The place is awesome for a family retreat! We had 16 and didn't quite fill it up! Owners were wonderful and helpful. Incredible views, quiet, huge, amazing bedrooms and baths. Just bring food, everything else you'll need is already there. Very large porch, porch swings, huge kitchen, many extras. We were not lacking for anything!

AWESOME, BREATHTAKING AND BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
Our trip getting there was bad with snow, ice and sleet. We don't get very much of this weather in Houston. There was about 20 of us getting together for the whole week of Thanksgiving. We arrived at night all so tired. The owners were there to greet us and show us around. When we woke up, omg the views were so beautiful and breathtaking and all well worth it. The B&B was awesome. Very nice rooms. Especially when we woke up and opened up the blinds to find about 15 deer right outside. And the views of the mountains in the sunrise and sunset were awesome. The kids were able to go right outside and do some sledding. Walked through the small town and hit up a few shops and casinos. We had a great time. Would love to go back.
