About the property

Cabin On Cheyenne Creek

This beautiful cabin is one level, 1300sf cabin and right next to Cheyenne Creek. You will sleep peacefully next to the creek, crisp fresh air, and huge trees surround the cabin. Very private off street neighborhood, quiet, no traffic. A wonderful vacation property within walking distance of the Broadmoor Hotel and Cheyenne Canyon State Park, six miles to downtown Colorado Springs. All linens supplied laundry, utilities, and cable.

Well behaved pets always welcome, small enclosed yard.

Great property, but...

We were looking forward to our stay in the Cheyenne Canyon cabin- although the website said check in was at 1pm, we were texted to say we needed to check in after 4pm (check out was also changed from 11am as listed to 10am). That was fine, we found other things to do before 4pm. When we arrived, the cabin was in excellent condition- perfect for our needs! The only problems we encountered were with the rather old TV and playing a DVD we had brought from home and the wonderful fireplace we had hoped would work (it appears to be a gas unit). We texted Christine about both but never received a response. When we received the refund for our deposit, she had taken money out for a pet stain to clean the carpets. We always check both for anything we might have left behind and anything out pet might have left behind and we were certain there were no issues. I emailed Christine about this- again, no response. Although I realize some people are probably cavalier about leaving a mess in someone else's property, it would seem if that were the case the owner should contact the renters to state there was a problem.

Wonderful stay!

My friend and I enjoyed our comfortable, homey stay at the Roomy Cabin. It was clean, spacious and quiet. Deer visited daily. We even saw a doe and her two fawns just yards from the cabin on our drive back from our days adventure! Very convenient location to Garden of the Gods, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Helen Hunt Falls and all that Colorado Springs has to offer. The fall colors were so outstanding we took two trips to Cripple Creek that is about a 50 minute drive away. Great photo opportunities! Christine always responded quickly to any questions we had, sent valuable information before our stay concerning weather, places to see within minutes of the cabin, grocery stores etc., as well as refunding the damage deposit the same day of departure. We would definitely stay again and recommend it highly!

I spent a couple of days in the cabin while preparing for a meeting. It was a warm and comfortable place. Plan to return someday!

Slept great, spacious bathroom, quiet, no traffic. Could have use a few more channels on TV, but the creek made up for it. Thank you!

Close to everything but quiet and secluded

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It's accurate that there are some potential hazards for small children in this cabin so be aware of those. Overall the cabin was really comfortable and quiet and the stream behind the cabin makes it peaceful and relaxing. We had quick access to the Broadmoor and the Cheyenne Mountain zoo as well as into Canon City for the Royal Gorge tour. Kitchen was well-equipped, making it easy for meals as well.

This is a very roomy, comfortable place in a central location where it's easy to get to grocery, I-25, and most all colo spgs attractions. Being creek side is always extra nice, having the constant music of the water. Being at the end of a dead end in a cozy neighborhood filled with dead ends was great too. Practically zero traffic. We had dog with and although the fenced in area was small, dogs are just happy to be there too and it was great. Made scooping poop a snap and easy to stay on top of. I appreciated, and usually do with vrbo, the personality of the place, books, games, amenities of every kind for our every comfort! Thank you! Only thing, we three all forgot our shampoo. A tiny toiletry kit like at motels or even bulk size pumps, I've seen both in vrbo's and everything in between. But it was no biggie at all, I barely bathe when in colo. :/ When I finally did bathe, I liked the ivory soap that was provided (so nostalgic), and new shampoo I bought for us at natural grocers. For such a busy weekend to be in area (Labor Day), traffic was never a deal unless we chose to go to the touristy places. Nice :). Having a little extra time at checkout would have been helpful since we didn't get as much done the night before toward packing up as we thought we did. The guys I'm traveling with are like herding cats. Old cats. It was rough on us middle aged folks to rush and then travel into the night. But that was my bad for assuming we'd have a little pad on the Sunday morning of Labor Day weekend. An 1130am checkout time would have been appreciated. We would stay again though if you'd have us. Thanks for sharing your place through vrbo. We enjoyed our stay very much. It's good to see that vrbo, etc., seems to be working out well for you. Good for you! Thank you for going to the trouble to mail me my phone charger! So nice of you!
