Beautiful Mountain Cabin! Our beautiful mountain home. Please inquire specifically about dates/prices. VRBO has forced us to state just one rate for the summer season.

You will fall in love with this very private,very clean cabin/home on 5 forested acres! Your beautiful mountain home awaits you. Something for every season! This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home of about 1,900 sq. feet is perfect and cozy for one or two families! Step right out of your private beautiful mountain home into 5 acres of alpine forest. Great wildlife viewing on property! A short walk can take you to the foot of thousands of acres of National Forest. Here you will have the best of both worlds. A forest playground is at your doorstep while at the same time ammenities like restaurants, bars, shopping, and more are 12 minutes away. This is a clean, fresh, and detailed home with newer amenities.

This beautifully furnished home/property is very immaculate and custom. You will enjoy this private setting on the end of a culdesac with pines and aspens surrounding you.

This gorgeous log-sided home, offers 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. The interior of the house has beautiful pine tongue and groove siding throughout, oak hardwood floors and saltillo tile with custom fixtures. You won’t want to leave!

Your new mountain vacation home has a beautiful dining room, a living room, a bar/kitchen with large windows overlooking the forest and a back deck. The dining room seats 4-6 and the breakfast bar seats 6. A wood burning fireplace/stove is perched atop a brick platform and mantle in the main living space.

The furnishings in the living room and dining room consist of an aspen log cushioned couch and reading chair, a cushioned log rocking chair, a single cushioned log chair, a pine Prince and Princess chair with cypress wood table, an aspen coffee table, log lamp, a dark wood dining table and chair set from the mountains of Michoacan Mexico, and a pioneer wagon wheel bench. The warmth of this home is accentuated with all of the finely crafted wood details that cover the entire interior space. Add to that the live plants positioned in perfect places throughout the home. We have cable television on a Flat Screen television and wireless internet.

Enter the 1st bedroom, the “Bear Room” where you will find a well appointed room with a queen bed. Beautiful new hardwood floors, and a wagon wheel bench. Sharing the same hallway is the “Country Room” featuring a log queen bed, and a beautiful log chair. These rooms have direct access to a beautiful bathroom with pine walls, a rock walled shower with tub, a pedestal sink, and a saltillo tiled floor.

Walk past the dining room and you will enter the “Deer Room.” This is a southern exposure room with lots of light which highlights a queen aspen log bed. A full attached bath provides easy access and comfort for the occupant of the Deer Room. From here, go downstairs where you will be delighted to see a laundry room with a full washer and dryer and another bedroom.

The “Bunk Room” has a large, sturdy wood bunk bed, a TV and DVD player and is great for adults, teenagers and kids! The lower level has an access door leading to the backyard/forest.

Step foot outside into the forest and venture up the “deer” trail to the top of the hill. There you will be welcomed by a cozy bench with an incredible view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Bring your coffee or a glass of wine for this private viewing. You will feel like you are on top of the world! There are other outdoor sitting/relaxing areas at the barn, on the platform with adirondack chairs, and in the hammock between two large pine trees.

If you should feel like you need to explore beyond the National Forest and your cozy cabin home, there are a multitude of things to do in nearby areas. We are only one hour and fifteen minutes from Monarch Ski Resort and Woodland Park is close by where there is great dining, the Dinosaur Museum, and shopping. The Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument and Museum is around the corner and Colorado Springs is just down the pass. If you feel like gambling you can be in the historic mining town of Cripple Creek in no time.

During the winter, you will enjoy sledding down a hill on the property and playing in the snow. Only 1 hour 25 minutes to skiing.

In the fall come visit this mountain home to see the beautiful changing of the Aspen leaves. The famous Gold Belt Tour Scenic Byway is a ‘must do’ drive during the autumn season.

And of course, summer time in the Rockies is unmatched. The Aspens are in full bloom and a sprinkling of wildflowers splash color across the landscape.

This is the Pikes Peak backcountry in all its splendor. Enjoy. * Please note a $200 fully refundable damage deposit is required. We do not include this in the auto-rates with VRBO as we do not cash these upon receipt, but shred them after departure as a courtesy for our guests.

About Marc and Angel Dettenrieder

This is a magical home. This cabin used to be our primary home before we had to move. It is private and beautiful. It is very custom and clean. We left all of our custom/original furnishings so this is not a 'garage sale' vacation rental. Everyone loves our custom details! Angel is a teacher and university instructor and Marc is an elected official-Teller County Commissioner.

Marc and Angel Dettenrieder purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Marc and Angel Dettenrieder chose South Central Colorado

Divide is one of the most beautiful areas in the world. This was our primary home.

What makes this cabin unique

The views, the wildlife, the quiet,the privacy, the temperature, the unbelievable breathtaking beauty of the Pike's Peak Region. Deer visit the cabin regularly.

Better than Advertised

  • 4 of 5

It's difficult to often tell what the setting will be like from photos alone, but in this case, the photographs do not do the property justice.

It is perched upon some beautiful property, with many amenities that many properties do not possess. It was very nicely decorated, with an authenticity that you can tell this was not built as a property to rent, but a property for someone to live.

The location is fantastic. You will not run out of things to do and go see.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

One tip, during snowing and winter months, while it's not difficult to get to the property, if you do not have 4 wheel drive(and even if you do) keep that in mind when parking. I would suggest to back in to the garage area once you are done unpacking. It will make it much easier to exit the property during inclement weather.

The owners were more than receptive, even though they were trying to enjoy some time off themselves, they were never difficult to contact. And quite honestly, they have it organized in such a way, you shouldn't need to contact them.

Highly Recommended!

Absolutely Beautiful Location and Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our 5 kids to this cabin and we were blown away by the beauty of the mountains and the awesome cabin. It was the perfect location to get away and feel like you were alone and isolated, but close enough to towns in the area to have fun doing activities. While we were out doing things like Cave of the Winds, Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs, Cripple Creek, and the Petrified Forest my youngest son would ask when we were going back to the "cool" house. All the other kids loved the trail that runs through the five acres of property! Great experience and we can't wait to stay there again!

It was perfect. Nature at is best

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect. A little secluded, but so peaceful. We had the deer come right to the door of the cabin. Marc & Angel were very friendly and helpful with all the information of where to go. We loved it, we would recommended. Had everything we needed to cook, all channels you needed to watch, the WIFI was a little slow but there. Excellent. Their details in the cabin were so perfect you can tell it has been made with love. You feel right at home and love all the birds that come to the bird feeders in the morning. A+++++++++

Nice home in quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice cabin with plenty of room to spread out. It is very quiet and relaxing. It is close enough to attractions in Co Springs yet in a very country setting. The owner was very quick to respond and allowed us to add an extra night at the last minute after our plans changed. I would definitely stay here again.

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

The house is awesome. The location is perfect. If you love to watch wildlife this is the place. Saw deer, lots of chipmunks, all kinds of birds, and even had a cat visit on the last day. The steller's blue jay which is only found at the elevations this house is at were amazing to watch. Plenty of room inside. The beds are really comfortable. Marc and Angel are really easy to work with and make sure you have all the info you need in plenty of time. The only downside was when it was time to leave for home. Would not hesitate to rent again!
