About LENNI OR DON

WE HAVE LIVED IN COLORADO FOR MOST OF OUR LIVES, AND OWNED OUR RANCH SINCE 1969. PERMANENTLY

MOVED HERE IN 1973 AND RAISED OUR FAMILY HERE

AS WELL

LENNI OR DON purchased this cabin in 2004

Why LENNI OR DON chose South Central Colorado

Beautiful mountains in ranching country with a year round flowing stream where the Deer and Elk roam. Lakes and

streams close by for fishing. also, centrally located to a lot

of interesting things to see and do.

What makes this cabin unique

No city noises, peaceful and beautiful. The Native Americans called this area 'The Long Look' because it was

so beautiful, they had to take a 'long look'.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay. The scenery was beautiful and the owners were friendly. Even though their house was extremely close to the rental, they truly respect your privacy. There were great hiking paths very close to the property. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the long drive to civilization. The cabin truly is secluded which is great when you want a get away, but you do have to drive 45 to an hour for activities such as rafting. Overall, very pleased and would refer friends and family.

Scenic and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay as it was quite, peaceful, and secluded. Cabin had absolutely everything we needed and more.

Don, Lennie were very responsive prior to our arrival with directions and any questions we had, and they were gracious hosts during our stay.

WOW! This is a beautiful place that puts you close to all the great things Colorado has to offer!

  • 5 of 5

To say we were pleased with the cabin would be a huge understatement. This was a trip of a lifetime and we will be coming back very soon!

The cabin itself is very comfy and accommodating. It was perfect for just my wife and I but it would also be just as perfect if we had brought our two kids (12 and 7) and large dog with us. The cabin has everything you need to cook (bring your own consumables), play games (board games galore and crochet), watch classic movies or simply sitting on the porch and healing the mind body and soul.

The property is well shaded with a small yard in the front to hang out and prepare for your adventure packed days. It is attached to the main house so this may not be the place for a bunch of rowdy teens to have their party fueled getaway but it is a perfect place for a family, couple, writer, painter, day dreamer or adventure seeker.

The location made it perfect for us to do and see so much in our 5 days. I won't bore you with all majestic details of our trip but it is worth pointing out that we were able to see the Garden of the Gods, Royal Gorge by Train, Pikes Peak by Car, Cave of the Winds, Cripple Creek for some gambling and a tour of the mine, Maintou Springs for a hot spring spa treatment and St Mary's Glacier. These were all done by making day trips. We were able to wake up, have breakfast, pack some lunch, go do our touristy stuff and be back to make dinner and hang out for the evening. Even the longer drives seem to go so quick with all the wildlife and beauty so don't be afraid to plan that day trip to the National Sand Dunes (we didn't and that is the one thing we regret not doing).

A couple recommendations: Make sure to leave your windows open if you are going during the warmer months. The mountain air is refreshing and healing. Also, leave your bottle water in the car. The well water is delicious.

Thank you Lenni and Don for an amazing time (and for the flowers and card as well)!

Secluded Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Long Look is beautiiful, the cabin was fully stocked with everything you would need. The cabin is perfect for day trips. The owners, Don and Lenni, are very friendly and helpful. In fact, the coffee pot didn't work and they went and purchased a new one the same day. We had a flat and Don helped us change the tire and put on the spare, he was a real lifesaver.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed (8-16-13 through 8-18-13) Beautiful cabin with everything you could ask for, something for all ages. So quiet at night that I had to get used to it. The main bedroom was so nice that I almost did not sleep in the bed, it looked to nice to mess up. There is a BBQ grill off the front steps, a quiet sitting area next to the stream, beautiful surrounding area, small store not to far away. This is the perfect place to get away from it all and relax. I came up for the Veterans POW/MIA Rally in Cripple Creek but spent most of my time in the cabin or outside of the cabin. But the best part of it all was the time I spent talking with the owners, I think we must have solved the worlds problems at least three times, better people I have never met. I would tell everyone I know to spend some time here, I will be back for sure. Thanks for a great three days away from the hustle and bustle of the city and work.
