Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family had such a wonderful time in your beautiful home in the mountains. Everything was just perfect the entire stay. During our stay, we went to the Air Force Academy, Fort Carson, Olympic Training Center, and Denver, but wherever we went, this was always a wonderful place to come back to every night. We all enjoyed Esther's Trail and we waited in anticipation of the mysterious bear! Last night htough, we found the garbage can dumped over, so we assumed he had come for a visit. Tomorrow we will venture home to Phoenix - 110 degrees!

Hello, I'm a busy Mom of four kids ages 18 through 11 recently transplanted from central New Jersey to Oregon! My past job experiences have included teaching community college and co-founding one of the first parenting websites, Moms Online. Over the last ten years I've gotten involved in managing rental properties here in NJ/PA, volunteering (Girl Scouts and PTO), and working as Editor in Chief for www.fitsmi.com.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

My husband and I bought this house as a bit of a lark - it was featured in a NYT piece in the Friday 'Escapes' section on Feng Shui homes. My mother-in-law was increasingly unable to travel and it just made more and more sense as we talked about it: why don't we buy it so we have a place for all of us to stay when we visit her? I did a little research about VRBO homes in the area and, at least at the time, there wasn't much competition (there's more now but we're still doing okay). We set up the house to please ourselves and our guests at the same time. It was a lot of work, and a lot of fun too.

We love, love, love the view at all hours, from watching the sun come up over the mountains early in the morning to dusk shadows and then sometimes a beautiful moon over the pass. My husband and I also love walking the Mt. Esther trail every morning we can (the head of the trail is a 10-minute walk away). When we're at the house, we enjoy complete privacy and the sense that we've gotten away from it all, but we also love the convenience of driving 20 minutes or less to many shops/attractions, from Colorado Springs to Manitou Springs, Woodland Park, Green Mountain Falls, Cave of the Winds, the local Rock Shop (our kids take forever to spend $5 in there!), Pike's Peak cog train, and more.

EXCELLENT PLACE FOR A FAMILY TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
This house is EXTRAORDINARILY WONDERFUL; My kids absolutely positively loved it... if we ever go back to Colorado again we would love to stay there again. A wonderful view, an outstanding location for Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Mt Ester Trail, Cave of the Winds, Manitou Springs. A short drive to Colorado Springs... The porches are magnificent and the neighborhood quiet and friendly.... the house is clean, everything worked, the open area for the kitchen and eating area had glass to the top of a ceiling with a great view of the mountains on the other side of Rt 24. Make sure you follow the owners excellent directions to the house as several of the small roads that your GPS may say gets you to the house are no longer throughways. My wife is partially disabled and I think the ad should more clearly spell out that a visitor need only navigate 2 small steps from the driveway to a first floor entrance that has access to a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining area, open area with couches; my wife was so happy to be able to get in and out of the house so easily without having to climb steps!!! (The laundry is in the basement...but I did the laundry !!!) I could not have been happier with the place.....

VACATION IN COLORADO SPRINGS

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in Colorado Springs and really enjoyed our stay at the house. We travel with our dog and he had a great time. The location was perfect. The weather was not the greatest (w/ all the rain), but as a result of the rain, we were able to see amazing rainbows at the house. The house was very comfortable and we tried to enjoy the views from the deck as much as we could. We even saw a bear on our first night. It climbed up a tree near the house and stayed there all evening (guess he was trying to seek shelter from the rain too!) We love the Colorado Springs area and look forward to coming back on vacation!

WE SAW A MOMMA BEAR AND HER CUBS!

  • 5 of 5
Katharine...the house worked out great for us and we could not be happier with the layout and amenities. It took about five minutes for it to feel like home. Teddy was a real hit...my wife says it comes with everything we needed even a vacation dog.  Hummingbirds, deer, and a bear visit...we think. The bear proof trash can was turned over (but it worked) and we saw the tracks.  We did see bears (two cubs and momma bear) in a field down by the Safeway in Woodland Park. We were able to sit in a parking lot and watch them for over 30 minutes before they moved on. We hope to go back sometime...maybe late fall early winter next time. Thanks for the hospitality...Tom

BEAUTIFUL LOG CABIN GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Katherine for sharing your lovely cabin with us! From the moment of arrival, my kids and husband kept thanking me for finding this amazing home with the fabulous view of the mountains! It was so peaceful and we found everything we needed inside! The only thing it lacked was a light @ the top of the driveway- we couldn't find it if we got home past dark because it is so secluded! Anyone visiting the Colorado Springs area has to try Three Delights Carribbean Restaurant! Amos was an amazing Chef and stayed open past close to accommodate our large group -his brisket and all the food was the best we had the whole vacation! You must have his guava duff for dessert too! Back to the Cabin- it was the best vacation we have ever had and we so appreciate you sharing it Katherine-wish we could live there!

KC MO FAMILY OF 8

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from our stay. The house was amazing, well furnished and located in a great spot. Great to be up in the mountains but so close to many tourist attractions. Never saw a bear, other than Teddy, a big brown friendly neighborhood dog, who visited us several times. When the owner was contacted she said that our house was his favorite hangout. We did see deer several times. birds and hummingbirds. The only hiccup was a heavy rain that due to the burnout area caused a flash flood/mud and debris slide that closed Highway 24 for a while. We were in Manitou Springs at the time and just ate at a restaurant, enjoyed some beverages and the property manager let us know when the road was back open. Our ages ranged from 7 to 78 and all enjoyed the stay. My only tip to future renters is to be sure and bring comfortable chairs to sit on the deck. You will want to be out there as much as possible to enjoy the scenery and mountain air.

Owner's Response: Dear Terri and family, so glad you enjoyed your vacation at the cabin, despite the mud slide on Highway 24! The weather is never boring in the mountains...I'm thinking about getting more comfy chairs on the deck now too. Please come again sometime!

This cabin is in the perfect location for all activities around the Pikes Peak/Colorado Springs area. We enjoyed the separate living areas and the scenic decks. We felt like we were far enough away to enjoy the mountain air, yet close enough to all the major attractions. We plan to come back again when our kids are older so that we can experience different activities, like hiking and white water rafting.
