Woodland Park cabin description

Echo Creek Cabin is our old-fashioned log cabin, ideal for a peaceful Rocky Mountain getaway with all the convenient comforts of home. Relax in a hammock on the full length fabulously rustic log porch with the hummingbirds flitting about, or curl up with a book in front of the cheery red woodstove in the old stone fireplace.

A short drive from Colorado Springs to Woodland Park (which has most services and amenities), then 20 minutes north on scenic Highway 67 brings you to Westcreek: A pretty valley that was surrounded by, but survived the notorious Hayman Fire of 2002, with stands of grand ponderosas, a meandering stream that flows into a quiet lake, and songbirds and wildlife in abundance. This is a Colorado mountain retreat that is close and accessible to city amenities but rural in character and charm. It's a 1930's historic true log structure, with knotty pine paneling and woodwork throughout, completely renovated and made new, including new kitchen, lower garden level, plumbing, wiring, heat system and windows.

ALSO PROVIDED: Satellite TV, broadband internet, long distance telephone (cell phones don't work down in the valley)

The porch is one of the grandest around, built in the rustic log tradition, a great place to relax and listen to the rain on the roof. Main level, including living/dining, kitchen, bedroom and bath is original. 2 more bedrooms, family room with gas stove, and bath with shower finish out the walk out lower level. It's an amazing place, come stay awhile!
