Comfy log cabin great location
This was our second stay at this property and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The cabin looks rustic on the outside, but it was plush and comfortable on the inside. Waking up in the master bedroom with the view of the forest was fabulous. Only one night did we actually watch tv and it was mainly to watch the weather channel because snow was predicted in the forecast. We mostly listened to music while the kids kept in touch with their friends through wi-fi at the house. The only negatives we encountered with the house, which didn't affect our stay, was that the fireplace in the master bedroom did not work and the water pressure in the master bathroom shower was very low. The soaking tub was fabulous though!
Our teens love that the property backs up to the Pike National Forest instead of on a busy street in town. They spent afternoons exploring the forest with their handheld GPS and took lots of nature photographs.
Lake George is a wonderful central location to many activities, such as whitewater rafting in Canon City, horseback trail ride at the M Lazy C ranch (just outside of Lake George to the west), Pike's Peak, Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine near Cripple Creek, Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Cliff Dwellings, and the Royal Gorge - everything was within an hour drive. We just packed a cooler and headed out for the day and returned early enough to relax on the deck while cooking on the grill. My husband had a birthday while on our trip, so the kids and I baked him a cake! One of a kind birthday! The views were magnificent in every direction. If vacation locations were up to me every year, I would always come here!
