Cripple Creek Chalet Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8-10
The Mountain Fortress recently installed a brand new state of the art spa/hot tub and we felled some trees for safety/fire mitigation which also resulted in even better unobstructed views!
Any time of year, the Mountain Fortress provides a fantastic getaway for 1 to 10 people. The reason it is so popular is the location, views, comfort, ambiance, and amenities and they are available all year long! It's a perfect getaway no matter what the season.
The Fortress provides a perfect environment for an unforgettable family vacation, which you'll treasure forever. Most of our guests can't wait to come back.
Still some prime dates available in October, come watch the leaves change and the stars shine.
It has the best views in the area, some say anywhere, and you don't even have to go outside to see them. Every picture you see of views was taken from the deck!
This ultimate mountain getaway sits high atop a hill on the western slope of Pike's Peak, providing unobstructed views of the magnificent Sangre de Cristos mountain range right from the living room sofa.

We don't nickel and dime renters like many vacation rentals do. We constantly upgrade the property. The owner stays there often and wants it to feel like home. We've recently upgraded the great room with a beautiful Lane leather sofa, loveseat, and recliner. For larger groups, the sofa easily sleeps an adult and the loveseat a child. The rec room includes a queen pullout bed.

Michael purchased this chalet in 2003
Why Michael chose Cripple Creek
I enlisted a buyer's agent to find me a property with a very specific ambiance over a wide geographic area. When he took me to this place it was so overwhelmingly perfect that I made my decision within 15 minutes and started working on the purchase the same day.
What makes this chalet unique
World class views, privacy, incredible value, convenience to so many things to do.......or just get away from it all and yet stay connected if you desire.
