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 Colorado Springs

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.

Great Location & Super Kid-Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Black Forest Log Cabin. The location was perfect - close enough to major roads with stores and restaurants but in a lovely wooded area. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets and sunrises from the deck or firepit each day. We were traveling with our two small children (4 & 6) and were pleasantly surprised by the number of games, books and toys at the cabin. The cabin was clean and very comfortable with lots of space for our family (six total) to relax. We hope to be back soon!

This property was AMAZING! Incredible views, super clean and inviting, with plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

We had a couple of special requests throughout the week and the owners went above and beyond to make our stay happy and memorable. Also, this cabin was very kid-friendly--we were traveling with a one and a half year old and it was perfect for him. We will be back here!
