Good Functional Comfortable Cabin in a Gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

The first thing you will notice about the cabin is the beauty of the surroundings. It is nestled in a valley due west of Pike's Peak, tucked in so close that you can't even see the summit because of the rest of the mountain leading up to it from the west. You do however get a majestic view of the valley to the south, and way off in the distance you can see cars on the highway at night. The neighborhood is not busy at all, we saw only a few other cars there during our three night stay.

The cabin itself is cozy and functional. The wood burning stove in the living room works well, but if you're not into making a fire (it is super easy in this stove), there is baseboard heat in every room with individual thermostats, so every room in the house is comfortable no matter what it is doing outside.

This is not one of those super amenities cabins like you see sometimes, but it is also a great deal less expensive than a lot of what is on vrbo, and this one has 4 queen size beds (actual queens, not full) in 4 different bedrooms, 2 upstairs, 2 down, each of which share a comfortable bathroom. The water is on cistern, so pressure is a bit on the low side, and there is no dishwasher, probably for the same reason, but it is no big deal. Bring paper plates if it bothers you to hand wash dishes. The deck could use sanded and repainted, but it is in good repair, nice and solid, and the grill works quite well. Heats evenly, which is unusual for a rental cabin.

The hot tub had a button that didn't work, but it was hot enough to be comfortable and it was outside for stargazing. Totally lovely. There is also a tire swing and a porch swing hanging from trees on the property.

Overall, this place is totally worth the price. You get a lot for what you pay for. My wife and I went with one other couple and we did nothing but hang around the cabin the first day. Second day we drove north on 67 for a few miles and hiked around Mueller State Park, then went back to the cabin and chilled out some more. It was a lovely getaway, and the cosmetic blemishes that some reviewers have pointed out made zero difference in how much we enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to get away for a relaxing vacation in the mountains.

Great view; not the cleanest cabin.

  • 3 of 5

If you're looking for a mountain view in a quiet area, this cabin is it! Fantastic views of the Pike's Peak mountain range at over 9,000 ft elevation. No barking dogs, no noisy neighbors. You will be 45 minutes from Colorado Springs, not the advertised 30 min. This is a very cute cabin with lots of room, but.....if you have any allergies I wouldn't advise it. Every curtain and every blind are an inch think with dust! There is a cute decorative bear on the kitchen windowsill that not only is covered in dust, but also has cobwebs on it! Gave me the creeps while I was preparing food. Made me wonder how clean everything else was. I had to spend over 1/2 an hour using our own personal hand vac to try to clean off the curtains and an artificial Christmas tree that was secured to the wall in one bedroom & was touching the bed. This tree was so full of dust, it was SO disgusting! Also, be aware that the owner goes overboard warning you not to over-use water. I'm sure people have abused this, but then don't advertise that you supply a washer & dryer. This cabin stay was the 2nd week of our vacation & I had planned on doing some laundry; but they warn you that you could run out & too bad for you, so why would a person try doing laundry?

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed the view and the space. As for the dust, it is a mountain cabin and while we do clean after each guest, I recognize that each person's standards can be different. I'm glad you were able to find a way to accommodate your special requirements. Dennis & Jen

Great Hideaway for relaxing girls trip!

  • 4 of 5

We wanted a place set back in the mountains that we could relax and the Heavenly Hideaway was the perfect location. Sitting out on the deck in the mornings listening to the bird and watching the sun rise was my favorite time, I even got to see several deer run through! The hot tub was exactly what we needed. We came out for our annual girls trip and could not have asked for anything better. It was a quick trip back to town or to Mueller State Park to hike. Thank you for letting us enjoy your hideaway!

Lovely Mountain Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised and provided for a very comfortable stay. Since we wanted to do things in Cripple Creek and in Colorado Springs, the in-between location was great for meeting our needs. The scenery is beautiful and we succeeded in seeing some birds we had been hoping to see for a long time. All in all, a very enjoyable stay.

The place has so much potential but falls short

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the cabin from 7-24-17 through 7-27-17. The cabin was the perfect location for the sites that we ended up seeing, Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak, Cave of the Winds and Garden of the Gods. Beautiful setting with mountain views. When we arrived there were linens left in the dyer. The non-bear proof garbage can was overflowing(video documented). You would think being in an active bear area this would have been taken care of by the cleaning crew. The hot tub was not useable and disgusting. There was a layer of scum and who knows when the water was changed and the tub had received a good cleaning. Most tub owners know that - tubs need to be drained and scrubbed down especially with frequent use - you can't just treat with chemicals. The cabin itself is in desperate need of some TLC, tattered furniture, a few holes in walls going upstairs (video documented), just some simple repairs and replacements are needed. We also video documented the microwave door, which is loose and about to fall off. The stairs off the rear deck are not in perfect condition either, with a loose floor board and could cause an accident.The kitchen utensils were sparse. We were unaware of the cabin being on a cistern. I would think this should have been mentioned in the VRBO Ad, we may have decided to stay somewhere else. There are signs all over the cabin that scare you into not using water for fear of running out. It was mentioned in the journal by previous renters that they had run out of water. Several pages also appeared to have been torn out of the journals which made us wonder if any severe negative reviews vanished. There was also something written in a cabin welcome book about alcohol of any kind is forbidden, but the overflowing outside garbage can was loaded with beer cans and bottles. All in all the location and setting of the cabin is perfect, but it is desperate need of a little TLC and a deep cleaning. We wish we would have seen some bears...from a distance, or other wildlife.

Owner's Response: We agree that the location is superb! Thanks for your feedback. I'm disappointed that you didn't let me know of your concerns while you were staying with us when I could have addressed them. The trash you refer to was recycling that was dumped on the property by someone passing by. It was 5 large bags of assorted cans and plastics, far more than would have been generated by any guest group. My cleaning crew does empty trash and address recycling after each visit. We do drain and clean the hot tub regularly. The holes in the wall, caused by a previous guest, have been repaired. My cleaning crew made me aware of the microwave door issue and it has been repaired. The welcome instructions do note that the water is supplied by truck and stored in a cistern. This is not usually a problem, unless guests inaccurately report how many guests are staying or laundry is done every day--things I can't accurately account for in scheduling water deliveries. The guest book pages being torn out have not been from the owner or the cleaning crew. I'm sorry you were disappointed and wish you would have been in touch sooner. Dennis & Jen
