Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

NOTE: The minimum four night stay is $850.

Enjoy a tremendous view of Pike’s Peak mountain along with abundant wildlife in the beautiful Colorado Rockies. This newly-remodeled vacation rental home sits at 9,200 feet adjacent to the Pike National Forest. The cabin is perfect for couples, a family, a small family reunion, or anyone wanting to relax in the mountains any season of the year. This location allows guests to step out of a private mountain home into eight acres of alpine forest, with a short walk to a national forest. This vacation spot offers the best of all worlds; a comfortable home base for relaxing, exploring, and sightseeing, with the conveniences of home; a forest playground; plus the amenities from nearby cities.

This home is equipped with satellite TV both upstairs and downstairs. The two big screen TVs and DVD players are great for watching movies. Visitors will also enjoy the wireless internet access and the unlimited phone service for both local and long distance calls.

This is an immaculate home with new beds, furnishings, and appliances. The driveway goes to the front door. The cabin features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen with adjacent dining room, a great room upstairs, and a cozy family room in the lower level. The kitchen, great room, and dining room are open for comfort and convenience. Both the upstairs great room and the lower level family room provide great gathering spots with large windows that bring in the sun and make it easy to view the mountains and wildlife.

The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, utensils, dishes, and pans. A propane grill on the deck is available for outdoor grilling. All you need to bring is your food. The outdoor deck provides an exquisite daytime view of Pike’s Peak and clear nighttime view of the solar system. The backyard forms into a tree-covered valley for exploration and hiking. The wood burning stove will take the chill off a cool evening.

This is a great location for those wanting to explore the outdoors, yet remain close to the city and numerous attractions. The roads are well maintained. If wanting to explore beyond the cabin and surrounding forest, there are a multitude of things to do nearby. The cabin is located 15 minutes from Woodland Park (and 30 minutes from Colorado Springs), which has enough stores to provide about any product or service needed. There are many things to do year round in the Pikes Peak Region in addition to fishing, hunting, hiking, rafting, and skiing. The changing of the Aspen leaves in September is breath-taking. Summer time in the Rockies is unmatched, with average temperatures of 70 degrees, the Aspens in full bloom, and a sprinkling of wildflowers.

About The Owner

We are both educators who have always loved the mountains. We honeymooned in Colorado, return every summer, and long wanted to own a cabin in the Rockies. This will be our retirement home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose South Central Colorado

We have friends living in this area who had always raved about the Pikes Peak region. The view of Pikes Peak from our cabin was a selling point; you can watch the mountain change in appearance ten times a day. There is so much to do in this area, particularly within a day drive. It's centrally located in Colorado, close to Colorado Springs and Denver, and is easily accessible.

What makes this house unique

Some of the greatest benefits to vacationing here are the simple ones... totally relaxing, watching the hummingbirds and deer, experiencing the daily weather changes, and constantly seeing the mountains. Good fishing is nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a way to end the year and begin a new one. We had a great time in your home. Everything was wonderful. We enjoyed the warm fire, beautiful snowfall, and the great family time. We spent a lot of time driving around looking at homes and getting to know the area. We enjoyed the food in Divide and Woodland Park. We had time to relax and bond with the kids while playing in the snow, playing games, and watching your great selection of movies. Thanks for letting us enjoy your home.

Our time at this house was comfortable, peaceful and beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we needed! It is in a secluded area, comfortable, and clean! Everyday deer came around the house to feed and never ran away when we came outside! The location is ideal for your privacy but convenient enough to drive to fishing areas, walking trails, restaurants and grocery stores... we will definitely be booking a stay here again!!!

Great girls get away

  • 5 of 5

Girlfriends used this cabin for a long weekend get away. It was absolutely beautiful (inside and out) and much more than expected. All your kitchen needs to do home cooked meals; lots of table space to play cards or do crafts; tons of lounging room; plenty of towels and bathroom space. Beautiful deck to enjoy the view of Pikes Peak. Very up to date with cable TV for both televisions upstairs and down. Short drive to Divide for groceries, gas and restaurant. Loved it!!!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this lovely house for a long weekend. The owner was wonderful to work with and checked in with us just to make sure everything was as expected upon arrival. The house is very accommodating and would work for a couple, several couples or a huge family.....tons of room. It is located far enough in the country to have your own serenity but yet within a short drive you can be in Woodland Park or hiking on an unlimited number of trails. We saw mule deer daily at the house. Very peaceful and relaxing. Mueller State Park is very close and highly recommend at least driving through and if possible, take in some of the many hiking trails. Cannot say enough good things about the house, the owner and the area.

everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 senior citizens spent 7 days together at this beautiful home. We had ample space to "do our own thing" when desired, but the layout was such that we had plenty of room to do group activities, such as playing cards and other games. The house was well-stocked with essential supplies and very clean upon arrival. There are amazing places close by for hiking and nature walking. We highly recommend this home as a great place to restore heart, body, mind, and soul.
