Cripple Creek House Rental Photos and Description
House has 3 bedrooms & 2 baths. Bunkhouse extra, sleeps 5+.
This is a lovely historic cabin, nestled in the woods at 9000 ft., with a rainbow trout stocked pond just a few feet away. The cabin, 100 years old, has been completely restored for beauty and comfort. This romantic log house has a fully equipped modern kitchen, a main floor master bedroom with a queen size bed and bath with a claw foot tub. The upstairs has two bedrooms, one with twin beds and one with a double bed. The upstairs bathroom has a walk in shower. A portable crib and high chair are available in the cabin. The home has stained glass throughout and is filled with antique and rustic furniture. The woodburning fireplace was built from rocks in the area. The cabin sits on 70 acres with two additional ponds and is 'user friendly' for hiking.
The cabin is surrounded by a 4000 acre ranch with private roads that are excellent for mountain biking (bikes not provided). This vacation home is perfect for honeymoons, active families, or quiet get-aways. A full-size sit down Pacman game will keep all ages entertained. The wrap around porch is perfect for watching sunsets, wildlife and the many birds that frequent the area. The sky and the stars are incredible. The porch has a picnic table that seats 10.
Located near 11 Mile Reservoir which has excellent fishing. It is perfect for day trips to the small historic town of Guffey, Pikes Peak, the Royal Gorge in Canon City, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Fossil Beds National Monument and the Hornbeck Homestead near Florissant, the historic town of Cripple Creek for gambling , or Colorado Springs, the home of the Garden of the Gods and the Air Force Academy. Above Cripple Creek lies the largest active gold mine in the United States, and above the gold mine is the old mining town of Victor. An hours drive away is the Arkansas River for white water rafting. Or you might want to just relax, hike the 70 acres around the cabin, or fish for rainbow trout in the pond in front of the cabin.
The cabin has been in our family for many years and this is the eighth season we have opened it to the outside world. We hope if you decide to try it, you will derive the same joy and peace we have experienced from it.
Bunk house with loft, which sleeps four to six, close to the main cabin may be rented for an additional fee. This charming 'bunk house' is small but comfortable. It has electricity, electric toilet, satellite TV but no running water. It has an antique, mission style double bed on the first floor and a loft that sleeps 4-6 comfortably.
