Welcome to our 'Olive Branch' cabin in the woods.

If you are looking for that perfect get-a-way place you`ve found it! This is a true log cabin. Nestled at the edge of the woods with total seclusion. Enjoy spectacular views of both the San de Cristo Mountain Range and Pikes Peak 'America`s Mountain'.

The cabin is completely decorated in the woodsy Colorado decor with pure comfort.

You will enjoy all the comforts of home in this unique log cabin. It features 1-bedroom on the main floor with a queen size bed, 2-night stands, reading chair and a dresser. The living room, kitchen and dining area are all open on the main level. The large luxurious bathroom is also on this level. It has a separate shower and an antique claw foot bathtub for a relaxing bubble bath.

The open loft area over looks the living room and kitchen. The loft has 2-queen size beds, night stand and a 19' TV/DVD player. There is also 2 small cots with sleeping bags tucked in the loft nooks for young kiddos to camp out.

The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric range, refrigerator, microwave and all the essentials you need to prepare great meals. The living room has contemporary black leather furniture, a cozy wood burning fireplace in the corner. There is also a 48' flat screen TV with Dish Network and a DVD player in the living room.

Sit out on either of the spacious covered decks in the 4 over sized rocking chairs and enjoy the incredible views while watching the wildlife play. Spend your evenings around the open fire pit reminiscing memories and making new ones. You will find yourself star gazing the night away. After a adventurous day, soak your aches & pains away in the outdoor 4- person hot tub.

This is a great cabin for honeymoons, anniversary celebrations, family get-a-ways, hunting and fishing parties or just relaxing. Truly a great place to rejuvenate your soul.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: Thanksgiving of 2014 we purchased the Olive Branch Cabin after having rented it ourselves several times over the past few years. It is now 'home' where we love to walk, watch the sunrises and sunsets, and be in communion with God and the mountains and the deer who roam here. We think of the mountains of Colorado as 'God's country' and hope that others also find the peace and solitude here that we experience. We named the cabin 'Olive Branch' because it represents the beginning of a vision we have to reach out to military couples who have experienced brokenness as a result of war. In the Genesis story of Noah and the Ark, the dove brought back an olive branch when the flood waters began to recede. The Olive Branch is therefore a symbol of hope... hope for a new future, hope for a new start in life, hope for a new beginning in our relationships with each other and with God. And so we are Robert and Victoria and as you may have assumed, we are a military couple who has traveled and lived all over the world. Robert is an Air Force Chaplain and Victoria is a Presbyterian Minister. We have served congregations and military bases in Kentucky, Ohio, Idaho, Spain, Colorado, California, Florida and Texas. But our first love has always been Colorado! We are empty nesters now as we have two college-aged children and the four of us are stretched between three different states. And so one of the reasons we have this cabin is so that we can finally have a place to call home and to gather as a transient and geo-separated family.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Many years ago we began to lead marriage retreats for Air Force couples and believe that God is calling us to do this in our future Colorado retirement. Until then we continue to serve God and country, enjoy visits to the Olive Branch Cabin, and spending time with our adult children. It is our hope that your time spent at the 'Olive Branch Cabin' will bring about hope, renewal and sacred rest.
