About Debra Gerdin

As an Army family of six, we had the opportunity to travel around the world, but are thrilled to have finally settled down in Colorado Springs.

Debra Gerdin purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Debra Gerdin chose South Central Colorado

We fell in love with Colorado Springs and this property 13 years ago. This particular cabin is one of seven cabins, which were built in 1925, on six and a half acres of forested land. Although we have fully renovated the 90 year old homes, their history remains largely intact.

What makes this cabin unique

We will do what we can to insure our guests a comfortable and enjoyable stay.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

White Christmas at Black Forest Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cabin with his family for the Christmas holidays. The cabin is so cozy and charming! We will definitely be back! We had a wonderful stay while in Colorado Springs. The cabin is centrally located to many great restaurants and grocery stores. We greatly appreciated how the cabin was decorated for the Christmas holidays. The tree was a great added bonus for our niece and nephew, they said Santa would surely find us! The homeowners, Debra and Rachel were very helpful!! My husband and I do a lot of traveling and I have to say this was one of our best trips. We loved the cabin, it was just what we had hoped for! And the icing on the cake was it snowed on Christmas Day!

Don't miss out, book the Black Forest Log Cabin!!

Perfect Getaway Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family of four enjoyed staying at this cabin very much where we awaited the New Year! My first impression was "Wow! it's so clean and it has everything!" Even down to the smallest of things, the sheets and towels smelled great and there was nothing we needed as the cabin had everything! It's location is perfect for those of us that wanted some peace and quiet. The cabin could have slept more people, but it was more than enough for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and greatly appreciated the owners checking up on us via text to ensure we were comfortable. I highly recommend this cabin. Thank you!

Beautiful, clean and cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Black Forest Log cabin, it is a beautiful cabin that makes you feel cozy. My family of 7 enjoyed everything in it, we didn't want to leave, Debra and their family were always there if we needed anything, she responded right away every single time. The cabin has a great location, there are convenience stores like 10 minutes away, there are restaurants too. This does not bother, since you feel like you are in the middle of the forest, it is surrounded by trees and has a big patio and front too. We loved our stay in the cabin and we would definitely love to be back. One of the things that is very important for me is a clean place. The cabin was perfectly clean.

Also the kitchen had everything you need. In a few words: I 100% recommend it! Thank you Debra and family for making our winter vacations great!

With a family of 7, this cabin was perfect. Clean, comfortable, spectacular views, close to town yet surrounded by trees, privacy, beautiful kitchen and all the extras and then some! Puzzles and games for the little ones. Enough space for us all yet we were able to keep an eye on everyone. Loved the sitting area in the master bedroom. Roasting marshmallows outside was a super treat. Thank you for creating this wonderful cabin so we may have awesome memories with our family. Where you stay can break or make one's vacation and this for sure made it!

Peaceful and beautiful cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is located in NE Colorado Springs. It's about 30 minutes from most attractions you would want to visit but it's very easy to find your way around the area. It's located on Black Forest road, which at times is highly traveled. With that being said, it is still beautiful and peaceful with a fabulous view of Pikes Peak. There are two decks and another area next to a fire pit to enjoy outdoors. If you chose to stay indoors, there is no road noise as the cabin is very quiet. The owners do a great job of staying in touch to attend to your needs. However, the cabin is stocked with literally everything you could possibly need. Blender, iron, first aid kit... you name it, it's in the cabin. Don't pass this cabin up if you're in the Springs. We will be staying here again ASAP! Thanks, Gerdin family for sharing it with us.

We had an amazing time and the cabin was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. We took our three children ages 20, 16 and 14. We made some great memories and hope to come back again. It was much nicer to stay in a home rather than a hotel. Rachel made sure all our needs were met and made sure if we needed anything else that we could contact her.
