About the property

A memorable getaway awaits at ‘Mt. View Lodge,’ a secluded, solar-powered vacation rental which sleeps 4 in Florissant, Colorado. The open concept design with room dividers, walls and lofts, rather than separate bedrooms makes it easy to converse with your travel companions. This home has spectacular mountain views from its wrap-around deck and uses solar electric power, well water, and more conservative features, showing you how to be green and sustainable!


Studio Loft: King Bed, 2 Twin Beds | Downstairs: Queen Bed

Upon arriving, you’ll be amazed by the seclusion and tremendous views this property offers! Spend your evenings breathing in the fresh air as you stargaze from the large wrap- around deck with 180-degree views of the continental divide.

Step into this modern, open concept home to be welcomed by a nice cinnamon and sage southwestern Indian theme with rustic decor.

Mountain views can be seen from every room in the cabin. Curl up with a book on the large cushioned seats of the window sill nook, making a point to gaze up every now and again to enjoy the scenery.

Play board games or cards with your travel companions and escape from technology as you enjoy the peace and serenity of the mountains. Additionally, a small TV equipped with a VCR is available for your entertainment.

Prepare your favorite home-cooked recipes in the fully equipped kitchen to enjoy at the dining table.

Mosey upstairs to the spacious loft, where you can enjoy numerous sitting and sleeping areas and balcony access for more splendid views.

This cabin offers a king-sized bed and 2 twin-sized beds in the loft and a queen-sized bed downstairs, where you are bound to have many peaceful slumbers.


While this home offers a secluded location, it’s also amazingly close to many attractions!

With just a 10-minute drive between you and the Historic Gold Rush Town of Cripple Creek, you can enjoy many different restaurants and casinos near the cabin!

Enjoy being within close proximity to hiking trails, such as Florissant National Park, Mueller State Park, Dome Rock Wildlife Refuge and Pike National Forest.

If you are interested in fossils, geology or nice landscapes, be sure to visit Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, only 30 minutes away.

Before continuing on to any of the local attractions like Pikes Peak, Cripple Creek or Florissant Fossil Beds, be sure to check out Pikes Peak Historical Society Museum, located 35 minutes away from the cabin.

Key Residence Features:

- Please Note: Mount View Lodge is a solar home, and if energy is not conserved by keeping household items off when not in use, there will be no power. Similarly, this home is on a well, and if water isn't use sparingly, it may run out until the handyman can come out to refill it. Because of this, guests are encouraged to bring bottled water to drink if they so please. The home uses propane to heat up on cooler mornings, but the fireplace is a great source of heat, so guests are also encouraged to bring firewood from the local store in Cripple Creek or to gather it around the home. This unique home is about sustainability, roughing it a little with a bit of charm and happiness, and making memories that will last a lifetime!

- Should the home run out of power, there are lamps candles provided. Because of the solar-powered quirks of this home, guests are advised not to bring mroe than one or two days worth of food if planning on staying in and cooking.

- Amenities include a fully equipped kitchen, spacious deck w/ mountain views, balcony, fireplace, TV w/ VCR player and more

- If you're traveling with more than 4 guests, check to see the availability of the nearby Evergreen Cabin, Evolve Listing #348583, which is also on a well, features one shower, and can sleep up to 6 additional guests.

- Great Florissant location - Enjoy easy access to Cripple Creek, Florissant National Park, Mueller State Park, Dome Rock Wildlife Refuge, Pike National Forest, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument and Pikes Peak Historical Society Museum.

Stayed here for 2 nights in June. I quickly got the impression that the place isn't cleaned and that the renters are the only ones that clean it. Dishes were dirty as well as counters and refrigerator. Windows dirty as well. Hammock was rotted out and there was a chair that was broken outside. The house runs on solar and a cistern for water. We still had a good time because the view was spectacular. I would not stay here again nor recommend it to anyone.
