CIRQ DU CHALET: LAKE VIEW MOUNTAIN TOP RETREAT. PERFECT BASE CAMP.

Florissant Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Cirq Du Chalet Mountain Top Retreat a gorgeous private and separately owned vacation property adjoining and overlooking several trout lakes. Cirq Du Chalet offers stunning views and privacy for the discriminating guests.

Over 1400 square feet of well decorated, turn-key private vacation residence on 2.4 acres of mountain rock formations as well as native aspen and pine landscape. The Chalet sleeps 6-8 in a three bedroom and two bath 2 story retreat.

Many modern amenities include; fresh water well, septic, gas forced heat, electric, HDTV, Dish satellite, wireless internet, telephone, fireplace insert, newer appliances, new mattresses, bedding and linens, washer and dryer for longer term guests, and so much more. The home has been updated with new flooring, new furniture and a updated second bath. Everything is included in this turn-key vacation rental that you will need for any length of stay.

CIRQ DU CHALET is just far enough from the congestion of town but close enough for dinner and a show or shopping trip in any of the neighboring towns.

Nearby fishing, surrounding attractions, cities and adventures are just a short drive away making this location awesome for destination central. Immerse yourself and your guests in the best of mountain life. Hiking and biking trails/parks, white water rafting, world class downhill skiing, cross country skiing, 4 Wheeling, ATV trails, fast water trout fishing, tubing, horseback riding, hunting, casino gambling, visiting a gold mine, star gazing, or sitting on one of the numerous rock formations and taking in the spectacular views. You will find seating areas scattered around the property for intimate conversation or larger get togethers.

Centrally located to all the activities in and close to Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, Manitou Springs, Green Mountain Falls, Garden of the Gods, and the Cliff Dwellings, but don't forget about the Canon City area, where some of the best white water rafting happens. The train ride through the Royal Gorge is highly recommended. You can also head over Hosier pass and visit the Ski areas like Breckenridge - about 80 miles away. Stop in Guffey, Colorado to shop for that antique yard art you didn't know you were missing or just set up an easel or tripod and shoot some amazing photos of America's past. Tell Bill we said 'Hey'. Take the kids to the North Pole and Pikes Peak only 25 minutes away.

Cripple Creek: This cabin is approximately 30 minutes from the gold mining and casino town of Cripple Creek. Something for everyone to do up here. It is home to one of the largest active gold mines. Take a mining tour, a train ride or enjoy wonderful restaurants and entertainment etc.

Teller County claims our property is in the town of Divide. The USPS and Google maps claims we are in the town of Florissant. We are really on the border of both towns. To get all of their attention we have lovingly renamed this area Floride.

From Colorado Springs head west

up Ute pass hwy 24. Travel through the towns of Woodland Park and Divide. Turn left at Twin Rocks Rd. Pass the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. Take the next left at Trout Haven Rd. Continue up the mountain taking rights all the way up to Wahsatch Road.

Laura Cohen purchased this chalet in 2012

This property took all of one minute to buy when we first visited. Location, Location, Location then View, View, View. Central to all things from the bigger city of Colorado Springs to peaceful solitude of the mountains.

Laura and Lee believe it is as important who you lease from as what you lease.

GREAT PLACE, WOULD GO BACK IN A HEARTBEAT!

  • 5 of 5
This place was wonderful! Our party arrived in Florissant for a wedding and we were not disappointed, the pictures do not do this place justice. The view from the deck over the lakes is picturesque and so peaceful.
The cabin is close to Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, downtown Colorado Springs, there is plenty to do! If you love to hike, it is close to quite a few 14ers (we did Quandary Peak).
The fully stocked kitchen was very useful, it was great to stay in and cook our own meals. All of the amenities are great and in very good working order.
I recommend this place to everyone, it doesn't get much better. Thanks for sharing your home with us, this is a vacation we will never forget!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Cirq Du Chalet was even better than we imagined it would be. Our stay was perfect for our family of seven. When we arrived, our youngest wasn't feeling well as he was getting over a cold. We were able to stay at the cabin most of the time while the rest of the family went out hiking or exploring. It was like home away from home! The kitchen was well stocked, everything was clean, the layout for a small space was surprisingly spacious. The view every day was so relaxing, whether sitting outside on the chairs or looking out the windows from inside. We liked being so far away from all of the tourist areas. The drive is very easy to many activities and then we could escape back to our sanctuary. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us!

COZY AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
We loved the decor in the chalet. It had original vintage style incorporated with a cabin motif. It was so homey. It has all the modern conveniences, comfortable furniture, and amazing outdoor areas to read, watch, and take in the scenery. There's a beautiful view of a lake. Two things I would recommend is to make sure your firewood is short, maybe 16-18 in. or less. The wood stove has a small opening. It's very efficient though. I was also wishing I had brought a reading light for the evenings. There are many beautiful windows that bring in light during the day, but at night if you want to read a book or look at the map, you'll want a reading light. I can't forget the wildlife! We saw deer and many birds on the property, and every time we went driving around we saw dozens of elk, a couple of fox, coyote, mule deer, ducks, and geese. Laura and Lee are quick to respond to email, text, or phone calls if you need anything. They give vrbo a great reputation.

Owner's Response: Lee and I are so glad you had a "great time" as you said in an email to me. We love to hear that. We enjoy the Chalet so much and really take it personally when others see how special it is. You made a great point about the length of the wood for the inside wood stove and I will include that is the Welcome Letter that I send to everyone before they arrive. Your idea of the lamps is great too. I usually read at the dinning room table or on a Nook, so I had not thought lighting was sparse. We will definitely take care of that right away.
Please tell all your friends about us and come back soon.

AAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I LOVE THIS PLACE! The pictures don't do it justice. The property overlooks beautiful mountain fishing ponds and the setting in which they are placed is breathtaking and you really have to see it, in person, to appreciate its grandeur. At night you can catch a whiff of a nearby fireplace and the stars are unbelievable. By day, sitting on the rock watching the wild life and water is so peaceful. There are deer everywhere. The drive in is like morphing in to another time. The pavement disappears as does the sound of traffic. When you get inside you feel the warmth of a cabin with all the amenities of a 5 star stay. The kitchen is equipped to cook for a full fun family Thanksgiving. The beds, bedding and towels are top quality. I love the "kids" room. And what a cool upstairs bath with exposed shiny copper plumbing. The wood burning fire place really heats up the cool CO nights. Don't even need to turn on the furnace. It truly feels like you are a million miles from anywhere when in reality you are close to everywhere. Divide is the closest town and has everything you "need". Gas, groceries, libations... Pikes Peak overlooks this whole area and with that there is no shortage of things to do. Cripple Creek is a short drive for gambling, gold mining, and sightseeing. Colorado Springs is just down the pass and has all that a major city has to offer. But the best is being on the property, just relaxing. Lee and Laura have made this a wonder to behold. Best kept secret in CO. Can't wait to stay again!

BEST FAMILY TRIP EVER!

  • 5 of 5
It is really hard sometimes to coordinate everyone in the family's time off. We planned for months on this trip to Cirq Du Chalet. It was the best. starting with the communications from Laura then the house itself being great. All the comforts you could ask for. Beautiful scenery. Deers on the property. Stars in the sky you could never see in the city. We went to the nearby wolf sanctuary. Played games. Relaxed and enjoyed. Everybody had a great time including our dog.
Thank you Laura.

WOW!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed 3 wonderful days here. This place had everything you could want for a comfortable stay. I know our dog even had a great time. She has never really played with other dogs and Sophie from across the road was great. There is a wolf sanctuary not too far a drive away. We did that and loved it. We saw deer twice on the property. The view from the deck chairs overlooking the fishing ponds is awesome. I forgot how many stars there are out there and we saw night skies that will blow you away. Our son's girlfriend walked around like she was having a mystical experience. You couldn't pry the binoculars off of her.
