About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Cirq Du Chalet Mountain Top Retreat a gorgeous private and separately owned vacation property adjoining and overlooking several trout lakes. Cirq Du Chalet offers stunning views and privacy for the discriminating guests.

Over 1400 square feet of well decorated, turn-key private vacation residence on 2.4 acres of mountain rock formations as well as native aspen and pine landscape. The Chalet sleeps 6-8 in a three bedroom and two bath 2 story retreat.

Many modern amenities include; fresh water well, septic, gas forced heat, electric, HDTV, Dish satellite, wireless internet, telephone, fireplace insert, newer appliances, new mattresses, bedding and linens, washer and dryer for longer term guests, and so much more. The home has been updated with new flooring, new furniture and a updated second bath. Everything is included in this turn-key vacation rental that you will need for any length of stay.

CIRQ DU CHALET is just far enough from the congestion of town but close enough for dinner and a show or shopping trip in any of the neighboring towns.

Nearby fishing, surrounding attractions, cities and adventures are just a short drive away making this location awesome for destination central. Immerse yourself and your guests in the best of mountain life. Hiking and biking trails/parks, white water rafting, world class downhill skiing, cross country skiing, 4 Wheeling, ATV trails, fast water trout fishing, tubing, horseback riding, hunting, casino gambling, visiting a gold mine, star gazing, or sitting on one of the numerous rock formations and taking in the spectacular views. You will find seating areas scattered around the property for intimate conversation or larger get togethers.

Centrally located to all the activities in and close to Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, Manitou Springs, Green Mountain Falls, Garden of the Gods, and the Cliff Dwellings, but don't forget about the Canon City area, where some of the best white water rafting happens. The train ride through the Royal Gorge is highly recommended. You can also head over Hosier pass and visit the Ski areas like Breckenridge - about 80 miles away. Stop in Guffey, Colorado to shop for that antique yard art you didn't know you were missing or just set up an easel or tripod and shoot some amazing photos of America's past. Tell Bill we said 'Hey'. Take the kids to the North Pole and Pikes Peak only 25 minutes away.

Cripple Creek: This cabin is approximately 30 minutes from the gold mining and casino town of Cripple Creek. Something for everyone to do up here. It is home to one of the largest active gold mines. Take a mining tour, a train ride or enjoy wonderful restaurants and entertainment etc.

Teller County claims our property is in the town of Divide. The USPS and Google maps claims we are in the town of Florissant. We are really on the border of both towns. To get all of their attention we have lovingly renamed this area Floride.

From Colorado Springs head west

up Ute pass hwy 24. Travel through the towns of Woodland Park and Divide. Turn left at Twin Rocks Rd. Pass the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. Take the next left at Trout Haven Rd. Continue up the mountain taking rights all the way up to Wahsatch Road.

Why Laura Cohen chose South Central Colorado

This property took all of one minute to buy when we first visited. Location, Location, Location then View, View, View. Central to all things from the bigger city of Colorado Springs to peaceful solitude of the mountains.

What makes this chalet unique

Laura and Lee believe it is as important who you lease from as what you lease.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review and email that you sent us: Thanks so much for sharing your chalet!  We loved it and when we arrived, there was snow on the ground--perfect. We cooked a turkey and it was great to have the wonderful aroma as we played games, watched football and fixed the rest of the dinner. The slot machine was fun and we were wildly looking thru the cars to find more nickels!  It was the perfect Thanksgiving for us {our daughter, son-in-law and their 23 year old son and of course Aspen-the dog].  I really don't think we have ever stayed in a place we've rented that has been that clean and in such good repair and we have rented from VRBO for over 20 years!  It was wonderful---yes, you really deserve a five star rating.  For us, it was better than the Ritz Carlton and much more fun! .I will go on the website in the next couple of days and do a review and I have asked my daughter to send pictures to Facebook---she took more than I did.    We loved everything--Thanks so much     Toni

Beautiful and comfortable mountain home with all the ammenities you need.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with an amazing view of water, wildlife, and mountains. Because of the changing colors of the leaves, this was a perfect time to visit. The fenced in yard was perfect for our dog. We hope to visit again soon!

Owner's Response: We are so glad the "wild life" came out when we queued them. No really, we do have an amazing amount of rabbits, fox and deer in the area. The numbers have increased since the neighborhood mountain lion moved on last year. We would love to see you again soon.

Beautiful setting and view.

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was just as advertised, very relaxing. We enjoyed our stay very much and so thankful your property is dog friendly! It was fun to meet Lee while we were exploring the property. The highlight of the weekend was enjoying our family around the outdoor fire pit each evening after spending the days fishing and hiking. Since our son lives in the Springs, we visit as often as we can and we definitely found our new favorite place to stay!

Majestic Fall Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is so adorably decorated and is stocked with everything you need in the kitchen, big soft towels in the bathrooms and super comfy beds. We were there the last week of September and the foliage was exquisite. The Aspen trees were the most beautiful shade of gold and when the sunlight hit them they sparkled. This home away from home is located in the perfect spot, we visited the Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Seven Falls and Garden of the Gods and I think the longest drive was 45 minutes. I could have just sat in the adirondack chairs and enjoyed the view as this property overlooks two lakes. We enjoyed the fire pit and it was cool enough to make the fire welcome but not so cold at night that we were freezing if we were not right on top of the fire. There are deer all around the property that seemed to pose for my pictures. We would definitely want to stay here again and again as it was just perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much visiting with your family and friend. It was nice meeting you all. We are glad that you enjoyed the indoor and outdoor games. Lee personally built the corn hole and the ladder toss while I put together the Bozo Circus Bucket #6 game for the little ones. There will be more to come in the near future. Please visit with us again soon.

Fantastic Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the cabin so much. Everything that could have been done to make our days perfect had been thought of....except the weather. You could really tell the cabin was used by the owners and not just a full-time rental. The king bed had great linens and a great mattress. (We didn't use any others). The kitchen and bathrooms had top of the line paper products and every spice and other item you would need. The cozy cabin was the perfect place to sit and read our books, build a fire and look at the lakes while we watched the rain. We will be back to investigate the area and hopefully enjoy better weather in this charming cabin. Thanks, Laura, for sharing your wonderful cabin!

Owner's Response: I wish I could do something about the weather. We need the rain so I would make it only rain at night when we are all snug in our beds. I will work on it, lol. We hope your day at Pike's Peak was dry. We would love to have you back anytime.
