Our family traveled to beautiful Colorado every year for our vacation and loved it so much we decided to purchase our own little piece of Heaven. We would like to share it with others so they can have the same opportunity to also experience the same joy we have. We sincerely hope you enjoy your stay!
The Owner purchased this house in 2008
We purchased this property primarily because of the absolutely breathtaking mountain views, total privacy and convenient location to many attractions.
Relaxing just seems to comes natural in our mountain home with the secluded privacy, beautiful mountain views, and fresh clean mountain air. Yet we are conveniently located near several tourist attractions in the Pikes Peak Region. The wildlife is amazing to watch from the large solar windows.
Colorado is so beautiful and your cabin was the perfect place for our 3 generation vacation! Our week just flew by with the Zoo, Cave of the Winds, Horse back riding in Garden of the Gods, white water rafting and the Flying W Ranch. We also really enjoyed the amazing scenery watching all the wildlife (deer and fawn, a large buck, a fox, chipmonks, & birds). Enjoyed playing games with the family at the cabin in the evenings. We're not really ready for our vacation to be over but the memories we made with our family will last forever! Thank you!
This was our first family trip to Colorado. Let me just say that, this property has it ALL and much, much more! Beautiful doesn't even do it justice! Very comfortable and secluded. After each day of site-seeing, we couldn't wait to get to the cabin and snuggle in! The stars were amazing every night. My son had the honor of one of the 5 Mule Deer that came right up to the porch to check him out. We loved that games that were available to play and even watched a few DVD's that we hadn't seen in years. The cabin has everything that you need, minus the food that you want but everything you need to shop for is just minutes away! I know that Sue takes great pride in this home and has went out of her way to share this gem with other families.
I give this experience 5++ stars and hope that others are able to visit and enjoy as much as my family did.

I reserved my reservation for Spring Break 2017, coming from Houston Texas we had a long drive ahead of us and did not know what to expect once we arrived at the cabin. The cabin was clean and very well stocked. We had a question about the water and contacted the cleaning representative, Sue the owner returned our call very promptly and answered all questions. The cabin sits on a small mountain with breath taking views and is only about ten minutes from a small town. While there we went to The Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak and The Continental Divide all were relatively close. We have already started talking about going back next year. Thank you Ron and Sue for a wonderful vacation that my family will never forget.

Our family decided to have a Colorado adventure for Christmas and we were thrilled to find this property. The owners were great at responding to my inquiry. When we arrived everything was just as pictured. We loved the large yard that allowed our kids plenty of room to run and play in the snow. The six deer that came in the yard were a great thrill for my kids! The area was beautiful, close enough to all the things we wanted to do but still far enough away to have lots of peace and quiet. Very little traffic in the area so we were able to walk the streets finding good sledding hills for the kids. The beds were comfortable and they had everything we needed to prepare meals. Thanks so much for allowing us to make a lifetime of Christmas memories at your cabin.
If I had one tip for others it would be to plan on bringing lots of bottled water. We did not care for the taste of the tap water...but that could just be personal preference.
P.S. The White Christmas was AMAZING!
We had a really lovely time staying at this mountain home!
LOCATION: Near Divide, Colorado, it was 'in the middle' of all of the area activities we were wanting to do & we enjoyed returning each day to a quiet place in a serene setting & the ability to cook our own meals & pack our own picnics, thus saving a lot of money & time from restaurants!
PROPERTY: This property was very clean & well maintained & organized! The cabin itself is very nicely laid out with 2 bedrooms (1 double/1 king), living, bath (shower/toilet/sink), and kitchen/dining on the lower floor. The upper floor has a large bedroom with a double & 2 twin beds in it & a little loft with love seat & bookshelf full of games. Not sure the Pikes Peak view is still quite so clear from the deck.
FURNISHINGS: It was nice to see someone didn't just throw in their leftovers or head to Walmart to furnish this property! Although some of the bed linens & pillows could use replacing, there was a lovely supply of quilts, towels, dish towels, etc, all in good condition. The kitchen was well-appointed, with nice pots & utensils, although a medium sized skillet would've been nice & one of the large ones was very scratched up. There were no larger mixing bowls...only a small one. There were your basic salt & pepper, coffee filters, and plastic wrap, Al foil, etc left likely from others. We added wooden spoons because most utensils were plastic & not good for high heat cooking & a set of measuring cups, because what was there was incomplete. But there were a lot of things in the cabinets, like crock pots, hand mixer, blender, etc that some might find useful...although it's possible they're just taking up space! There wasn't a lot of cabinet space, though, to put your own food when you arrived...we rearranged to help with this a bit. It would be nice if all the dinnerware matched to make it easier to retrieve & store....and something with not such deep cereal bowls!
Why we didn't rate it 5 stars: The condition/need for items mentioned above (linens needing replacement, some minor kitchen things) and the fact that the den area only has seating space for 4. The seals on the large windows that look from the den into the forest are broken, so much of the time there was condensate covering about 1/4 of the lower windows, obstructing the view. Even in this case, we would still recommend this property to others looking at this area & consider it ourselves should we return to this area.
What a wonderful vacation. 4 days was not enough. Next year we are staying for at least a week. The listing description was accurate, the accommodations were very clean and well maintained. Ron & Sue's provided information answered all our questions before we could ask them. The cabin was very spacious, comfortable and extremely relaxing. Having a spacious area to unwind, enjoy the Colorado beauty and feel like home was much better than staying in a hotel room. Spent a great deal of time on the deck. The coffee tasted so much better in the early mornings with the fresh air and beautiful country side. Evening meals on the deck was beyond words to us. While secluded, we were not far away from things to do and see. As perfect a vacation get away as can be imagined. Thank you very much Ron and Sue for sharing your vacation home with us. You have made our vacation one to remember for a very long time and one we are already anticipating doing again. We have told many of of friends of our stay so don't be surprised if you get some calls in the coming weeks.

The property is beautiful, surrounded by trees and mountain views. The cabin itself had so much natural light with floor to ceiling windows. We visited during a snowy time so weren't able to enjoy the deck, but look forward to returning during warmer months. The cabin was clean and comfortable, and we really appreciated having the washer and dryer. It was also a huge relief to have a cleaning crew - we still left the cabin in conditions similar to how we arrived, but to not have to do the deep cleaning at the end of the stay (bathrooms, bed linens, etc) was a great relief compared to other places we have stayed. It is hectic enough trying to pack up a family and kids - so not having to worry about the deep cleaning was a bonus!! I recommend this as a great mountain experience - nearby several attractions such as Seven Falls, Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak...
On site hiking. White water river rafting, local cross country skiing, downhill skiing at Breckenridge is an 80 miles drive.
