The best location for all that there is to do in Colorado Springs and the surrounding towns. Super quite, sets off the road. We are a very busy family and it gave us together time to just slow down and hang out with our kids. Loved it and will be going back as long as they will let us.

Deer crossing

  • 5 of 5

Deer crossing is an absolutely perfect vacation home. It is a great location- close to all the beautiful sites but still tucked back in a quiet setting. Janice and Sterling have gone above and beyond to welcome guests to their home. It was decorated for Christmas including a tree and fresh poinsettia, which made it feel even more like home. Beautiful decorations throughout, a welcome sign with our name when we arrived along with some snacks in the fridge. We watched many movies in the evening, there was a great selection. The bed was VERY comfortable and the living room was very cozy with the fireplace. It was very cold when we visited and we wish we could have looked around a little more outside but we hope to be back again when the weather is warmer. We wished we could have stayed longer too. And we would have if we knew we were going to feel as we were at home. Thank you again!

Things to check out- the donut mill- biggest donuts ever, the pantry- cinnamon roll French toast and of course pikes peak. We drove up. The cog is closed for the winter for maintenance.

We arrived on Thanksgiving day. Janice and Sterling had decorated the cottage for the holiday which we really enjoyed and made us feel at home. We had a party of 6 adults and Deer Crossing was more than sufficient to accommodate. The bathroom and kitchen were very clean and well stocked. There are games and movies for ages and genres. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a great vacation.

Cozy and great for families!

  • 5 of 5

This is place to stay while you're visiting Colorado! Deer Crossing was clean, cozy, and has everything you'd need. It was perfect for our family which includes an 8 year old and 16 month old. We had such a great time in the area and loved coming back to the guest house in the evenings to enjoy a home cooked meal and board games.

About Sterling and Janice Penman

Sterling and Janice are Colorado natives. Sterling's family homesteaded in Green Mountain Falls in 1888 and have lived in this area ever since. There isn't anything he doesn't know about this area. Just ask him! Janice and Sterling both graduated from Manitou High School in the 1970's. We both have extensive family living in this area.

Sterling and Janice Penman purchased this house in 2016

Why Sterling and Janice Penman chose Cascade

We built this new guest house next to our family home.

What makes this house unique

Sterling is a custom home builder, as was his father, and his grandfather. He owns Penman Construction and Properties with his brother. They work extensively in Green Mountain Falls and the Colorado Springs area. They have been in business for over 50 years. Sterling built Deer Crossing personally for your enjoyment. We built our home, which is next door, in 1997. We love this piece of land and the awesome views it affords.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Such an amazing vacation home! So grateful for all the kid friendly touches. So clean and warm and welcoming. WISH WE COULD STAY ALL SUMMER. Can't wait to plan our next trip to Deer Crossing! Thank you!
