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 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!

The Black Forest Log Cabin Complemented Our Vacation Perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

We were totally comfortable in this cabin. What more can a grandmother ask for when she has a Sleep Number bed, across the cabin from where the two teenagers were sleeping (talking & laughing, actually) all night, and the third bedroom where Dad of teenager slept was way across the living room. Everyone of us had our own space. The furniture was cozy comfortable, and the water pressure in the shower felt great after a busy active day. Loved the sunroof over the tub, especially during a heavy rain. The porches were a nice place to have morning coffee, especially the one facing the Rockies. Cabin even prettier than pictures show. Lots of towels provided. Easy to get in touch with owner and get a quick response to any questions. You should go!

Great location. Close by Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Royal Gorge etc. There is shopping everywhere so all u need to do is pack your bag and get there. You have a country setting with all the above so close by. We enjoyed our trip.

Beautiful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect mix of away from it all and close to attractions.

With morning coffee on the deck watching the antelope graze in the field across the road, the squirrels playing in the trees, a long walk down the gravel road right by the cabin or just a beautiful evening watching the sunset by the fire pit it was absolutely relaxing and beautiful.

Not 10 minutes away from local restaurants and less than 30 from all the attractions of Colorado Springs. Pikes Peak, Garden of the gods, the zoo... did I mention the restaurants? We found some great local places!!!

About the Cabin.

As amazing as the location is, it was furnished with everything you need. Large gas grill on the back deck for the burgers, hot dogs, steaks or chicken. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you needed. The bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 baths, living room and dining areal were all plenty large and ready for your comfort.

Can't say enough. Loved this place and when we return to visit Colorado Springs again well will look here for availability first.
