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.

Beautiful views comfy cabin

  • 5 of 5

Best experience! Cabin is perfect, roomy and very comfortable. The stream is right off the back porch and you can hear the water through out the cabin. So relaxing, quiet and comfortable! Christine has made the cabin extremely accommodating for visitors with attention to small details. We will be back, we didn't want to leave!

The property is amazing! Listening to the creek all night was one of the highlights of the trip! I wasn't prepared for the tiny driveway that is connected to the lot.( I'm used to my long driveway. :) Christine lists check-in at 4pm, but the cabinwas ready for check-in way before that. I think the only con was not being allowed to have visitors over without paying extra. We knew several people in the area and some live in studio apartments, so having the extra space at the cabin would have been great. But, we would still stay in the future! 👍

Owner's Response: Emily. Your guests spent the night here in their own room, they were not gone at 4am like you said they would be. I sent this memo to you prior to your arrival and I sent it twice. "If extra guests stay overnight please send a message or text adding guests." The web page for most hotel reservations ask how many guests are booking? Is that deceitful? Where is the con? Christine

Owner's Response: In response to "Not the fanciest". Yes, I agree...fancy and cabin don't go hand in hand. But maybe rustic, contemporary, even homey. Not fancy. How does one break out the frame on a sofa chair? It is repaired but it lacks that new feeling. Christine

So Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We certainly did enjoy our stay at this lovely home along the creek! Everything went according to plan. Very easy to check in and check out. It was simply unbelievable how quiet this little area is in the midst of the city and only five minutes from the Broadmoor Hotel. We saw more wildlife around this lovely property than even making the drive to the top of Pikes Peak. The owner is very nice and accommodating. We rented it for the patio along the creek. It was even nicer than expected. We would return again to this place if we are in the area.

worst experience of all my VRBO rentals

  • 1 of 5

DO NOT STAY HERE! The owner is hostile, rude, unprofessional, and quite frankly extremely dishonest. She is not refunding our full deposit as she says she had to clean the carpets due to smoke damage. That is ridiculous! WE ARE NON-SMOKERS. We lit a candle one night to celebrate my daughters birthday. Look at a past review about carpet cleaning. She uses people's deposit to clean her carpets by falsely claiming damage. I am a retired school teacher. I have never been so insulted and upset regarding a property. The only reason we stayed here was because it was dog friendly. The fireplace she advertised did not work, and the dishwasher wasn't working either until we had to go under the sink and fix. The front yard was very very small and quite unkept. Before we left I cleaned, and I mean CLEANED the cabin for two hours before we left. I am a clean freak and wiped everything down with clorox wipes. I did two loads of laundry and had one folded for Christine so that she could make beds for her next arrival. She said the house "stunk" and said I cooked curry, (which was extremely racist), of which I did NOT. We cooked steak on the BBQ outside. WE MOVED THE BBQER to the very small yard which she said we did not. The BBQer was filthy and we had to clean it before we used it. We baked two items in the oven in foil. The deck is a death trap for my older dog (we had to put up two gates because of drop offs into the creek below) or for children. I sent Christine pictures of a spotless cabin. She even admitted the house was "fine" in a text. This experience will make me very cautious of who to rent from in the future. STAY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

WARNING! Owner steals your $ by not returning security deposit

  • 1 of 5

I rented this unit for 4 days while I was working out of town. I booked a place that allows pets in case my wife came to visit and brought our dog. She did not visit and there was never a pet in the home. I received an email informing me that all of my deposit will be withheld because of pet urine stains. There is another bad review stating the exact same thing happened to them in December of 2016. Lesson - this person will steal your deposit money if you say you are bringing a pet, regardless of any damage or not. People like this should be put in jail.
