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.

Outstanding! Very well equipped and very clean. Location is great, quiet country setting yet only 15 min to shopping and restaurants. Very close to north gate. Highly recommended for academy parents! Far better than the other rental houses we have had in the area

We had a wonderful time!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is beautiful, clean and fully stocked with everything you need. My ONLY dislike was that we were very hot during the night. There is a sign stating you can't turn the AC below 73 and we were very warm. Even with that we would still return for our next vacay!

Wonderful stay in beautifully renovated log cabin

  • 5 of 5

The owners have done a wonderful job renovating this cabin. The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable and the space suited are party of 6 quite well. My husband and I loved the adjustable bed, I loved the kitchen supplies, the kids really enjoyed the opportunity to use the fire pit and have separate beds, and my parents loved the space in the master bedroom as well as the availability of AC since we were there at the end of July. I was a little worried about only having one shower, but it wasn't an issue at all for us. The only downsides are around the location of the property. We were aware of this before booking, so it was not a surprise. The property is directly off a main road with some traffic noise in the master bedroom. It is also about 25-30 minutes to most of the tourist attractions in the Manitou Springs area. This wasn't a huge deal except for the fact that it made it harder to come back for lunch. In my opinion, the amenities of the property made up for the location issue for us. I would have loved to stay longer!

Perfect Colorado Springs Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is just so cute! Our family of six prefers a vacation home vs hotel rooms. This cabin is the jackpot in Colorado Springs. Nestled in the Black Forest (which reminds us so much of our beloved Black Hills of SD!), it is easy access to all the hot spots. Tons of outdoor entertaining space. We roasted marshmallows and hotdogs over the campfire. The kitchen is equipped with essentials. Clean and airy atmosphere. Even the towels were plush! Thank you for a great experience! We will recommend to others!
