Florissant Estate Rental Photos and Description

Six Bedrooms (4 Masters), Large Common Areas, 40 Acres to Explore

Tihsreed Lodge is a luxury mountain home waiting for you to enjoy. This is truly a magical place to relax, enjoy and create memories.

Tihsreed Lodge is a large log mountain retreat approximately 45 minutes from Colorado Springs in Teller County, Colorado. The Lodge is on over 40 secluded acres with wonderful views of Pikes Peak. Warm and luxurious, the lodge provides a rustic elegance to its guests.

Perfectly balanced between the 'necessities' and 'getting away from it all', this 40 acre retreat has spectacular views and abundant wildlife. The house is a log style 6,800 sq. ft. home. Wrap around decks allow you to enjoy beautiful Pikes Peak. Outdoor areas include: large patio with fireplace, hot tub, and a tee box.. End your day with a cozy fire or a warm soak as you marvel at thousands of bright stars overhead.

As you enter you will be greeted with a wall of windows as well as a floor to ceiling stone fireplace in one of the two spectacular great rooms. Unique art and antiques are showcased throughout the home. Whimsical additions include a vintage Pepsi dispenser and a Bally pinball machine in the lower level bar area.

You and your guests can select from 6 spacious bedrooms, 3 of which are master suites. On the top level there are two master bedrooms. One has a queen bed with lighted headboard for night time reading. The other has a king sleigh bed. The main level contains the 'main master' with a king bed in a cowboy themed room. Also on the main level is the 'cowboy, jr.' room with a full bed. On the lower level there is a handcrafted king bed and another room with two queen beds.

Colorful Colorado is your ideal destination to ski, hike, golf, fish, bike, raft, climb, relax and more.

The Lodge is available for rent year round, so please visit us often. It is perfect for family reunions, weddings, and a gathering of friends.

Main Level: The main level of the house features soaring windows with our signature view of Pikes Peak. The elegant great room, with a grand stone fireplace, opens to the super-sized kitchen and formal dining room. Dividing the kitchen from the great room is a large island with cowhide covered stools; perfect for a quick breakfast or informal snack. If a larger meal is in order, the 5 burner gas range is ready to use. Step outside on to the wrap around deck. Watch the deer meander by as you enjoy your morning coffee or just soak up some early morning sunshine. From the deck enter the main level master suite. Here you will find western themed decor and an executive style bathroom. The custom built shower stall with dual shower heads or the extra large whirlpool tub are perfect ways to end or begin your day. Dual vanities and a 6.5 ft. mirror make dressing easy. This suite includes a bonus room, a perfect hide out for one or two small children. Another full bedroom is locate on this level.

Treetop Level: Two lovely master suites and a huge common area loft make up the upper level of the house. In one room you will find a luxurious room with king bed and private seating area. Sit and read or enjoy your private 'portrait' of Pikes Peak. Listen the the trickle of the garden fountain as you sleep with cool breezes through the three windows in this suite. Step out to the loft and feel part of the household activity, as you observe from the loft or enjoy the plush furnishing as you read or share a conversation. Across the shared area is another master suite. This room has a unique queen bed with hidden 'pop-up' reading lights. If you enjoy reading in bed, you will love this room. A large collection of reading material is displayed just outside the bedroom door.

Go to https://sites.google.com/site/tihsreed/ for even more information and photographs.

Activity Level: Oh, what fun! This is the floor for the young and the young at heart. The large screen TV, bar and bar stools, contemporary art, old fashioned wood stove, working vintage Pepsi and original 1965 Bally pinball machine are all located here. Tune on the big game, put on a movie, or fire up the bells and lights of the pinball machine. Two doors open onto the patio where the 8 person hot tub, multiple seating areas and handcrafted stone fireplace are found. Enjoy a pilsner of beer or pour a glass of wine; meander around the patio area or head out to explore outside the house. When the fun is over, retire to one of the two lower level bedrooms. One room contains a custom-made log king bed by a local craftsman. The other bedroom is a queen bed. Both rooms are large and comfortable. The window in the room on the north side of the house is visited by our friendly deer. She has her own bed up against the house. The other bedroom is near to the downstairs bathroom and has a clever nostalgic decor. Remember the 60s, 70s, or 80s? You'll enjoy our memorabilia.

Should you wish to have a relaxing and enjoyable Colorado mountain get-away; to breathe crisp air and watch the sun rise over America's mountain - Pikes Peak; look no further than Tihsreed Lodge. We look forward to hosting you and your family/friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family had a wonderful and memorable vacation at Tihsreed. The home is beautiful, very clean, spacious and well appointed. Our family of seven was extremely pleased with the seclusion and privacy the home offers. We will return. Don, you are the best.

Don is financial services consultant and the general handy man for the Lodge.

Both Toni and Don are marathon runners, skiers, and cyclists. Their goal is to ensure that your time at Tihsreed is memorable and that you will want to return.

Donald Moore, Toni Blackwell purchased this estate in 2006

Tihsreed is a truly magical place. We are sited in the center of the state so you have just a short drive to the best Colorado has to offer and if you choose to stay put, we have plenty of fun for you on site: a golf tee, hiking trails, hot tub, dvds, fireplaces, wildlife and much more.

Tihsreed Lodge is decorated with fun and whimsical items, all for sale. There are games, collectibles, antiques and tchotchke that you will enjoy viewing. Many guests choose to purchase items to take home as mementos of their Colorado vacation.

We are located at 9000 feet above sea level, so a hike on the property will give you an extra effort work out. There are swings along the path and many deer live on the property. The views of Pikes Peak and the Collegiate Mountains are beautiful.

BEST VACATION

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we drove through the mountains up to the beautiful Log estate we new this would be an amazing vacation. Don and Toni were the great host they were there to help us when we were looking for places to ride our ATV's and when we where in search of food they where also great to just talk with about the mountains and life in southern Colorado. The Estate was amazing we had 17 people there 8 adults and 9 kids and we had more than enough room and everyone loved the house and the land it was on. We walked the trails everyday, played horse shoes, swung out over the side of the mountain, relaxed in the hot, and enjoyed family dinners in the house. The day we left we all had to shed a tear to be leaving such a beautiful home in a breath taking surrounding. We are already thinking about how and when we can come back again.

GORGEOUS CABIN WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
The TihsreeD Lodge was absolutely beautiful! It was very relaxing to have a little seclusion but also lots of family oriented activities around the cabin. The cabin is very well maintain and clean. The owners are also very nice and really helpful. They took the time to stop in and say hello and gave us great recommendations for site seeing. This is the best cabin I've stayed in and I'd love to go back!

GORGEOUS MOUNTAIN LODGE

  • 5 of 5
Huge lodge with resort amenities and everything you could possible want for a vacation escape. Not far from civilization (if you must!), but close to Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, Pikes Peak Historical Society Museum, all the attractions of Cripple Creek, golfing in Woodland Park and fishing and horseback riding at multiple nearby locations. Or, do as we did and enjoy relaxing on the premises. Morning coffee on the decks; evening wine in front of the outdoor fireplace and in the hot tub. Who needs to go anywhere else. Don and Toni are the most gracious of hosts and provide everything you could possibly need. Bring food and drink and you are set!!

THIS IS COLORADO... GOD'S COUNTRY

THIS is Colorado... God's Country
  • 5 of 5
I have booked on HomeAway numerous times and have many reference points when looking for a good stay. TIHSREED is an EXCELLENT stay. Don was personalble LONG before we left for our retreat. He made a few well timed contacts via phone and emails always knowing and aware of our preparations and anticipations. He has a gift and 6th sense of what a traveler needs to know. From the initial "Hello" when booking to the final "goodbye" in the driveway, Toni and Don are all about making the stay all that you imagine it should be. Greeted with a warm fire, huge smiles and a heartfelt tour. We were a crew of 15 guests. We could have easily fit 10 more. The game room downstairs made the 9 kids feel like they had their own retreat and the adults had plenty of room and seclusion to let their hair down and enjoy each other's company on the other 2 levels. Though our friendships are amazing, and those were what we brought, it was enhanced by hosts and an atmosphere of sheer perfection. The price gives you FAR MORE than any place I have rented. This is a haven. Kitchen is fully stocked with what you will need. Our crew was plagued by some things that could have deterred from our experience, let's just say we were accident prone. But our hosts were MORE than gracious! Yes, we had trouble with 2 wheel drive on the way up the drive. Don made it into just another day, by putting us at ease with his "AH, NO problem... We can handle this..." attitude. And HE DID. Firewood stacked and restocked thru the week. They seemed to disappear once we were settled in with our TON of luggage, and only reappear like a mystical gift when we needed something, questioned a travel destination or needed to laugh around the firepit. What a beaufitul place with a spirit of its own. Soulful retreat. So much room in and out of the home. Snowmen, sledding, hiking, s'more's, family dinners, relaxing hot tub, friendly Karaoke. You name it, it can accomodate. Pack your bag (not as many as we did) and enjoy the fully stocked home! Make your own memories, because this place is what inspires you to reach for the stars or relax amongst them. Thank you Don and Toni for sharing this wonderful, beautiful slice of heaven! 6 bedrooms, kitchen, 2 living areas, etc do not do this place justice. Check out the FB page for our pics that we will soon be sharing. This is a place we are blessed to have found and look forward to MANY return visits and a new friendship with TISHREED!

WONDERFUL WEEKEND GETAWAY WITH FREINDS

  • 5 of 5
Thisreed Lodge was the perfect accommodations for us to get away from our daily routines in Dallas. We were a group of 8 friends who wanted to relax have fund and also enjoy our privacy in the house and we could not have been more comfortable. From the incredible amenities such as outdoor hot tub, jetted tub, excellent view of Pikes Peak, TV room and all the games, everyone was busy enjoying themselves non-stop. The house is more breath-taking then the pictures could even come close to describing, and the kitchen was so well stocked with appliances and cooking utensils that we needed nothing when preparing meals. I booked this place not knowing if my friends would like it after meeting Don & Toni and their hospitality and the seeing the amazing lodge for the first time I felt proud amongst my friends for booking this place. Don & Toni are wonderful people who really want you to have an incredible time. This place is a hidden gem in the mountains, if you are looking to get away and have a big family you MUST STAY at this place, we are looking forward to go back and have a great time like we did this time around, thank you Don and Toni for such a wonderful stay.
