Property location was as described. Photos of the home reflect properties general appearance. Property was very poorly maintained. High grass around the property, terrible wash outs in the driveway (would be very tricky with anything other than a truck), horrible problem with mice inside the home, and we had to get out of bed two or three times every nigh to reset a beeping alarm system with a low battery alarm (not keypad batteries but system battery). We attempted to contact property manager regarding these issues during our stay but phone calls were not returned. Would not recommend this property as it was NOT maintained and communication with property manager was poor at best. We love the Florissant area but will stay else where the next time we visit.

The property was just as it was described and the area was quiet and beautiful! The house was comforatable and clean, a gorgeous master suite area. Cell coverage in the house was spotty for Verizon and AT&T but the wireless internet access was excellent! This allowed us to keep in touch with the world when we wanted to! The communication about the trip before we left was simple and quick, I ended up changing my reservation to include my dog and that was dealt with in a very friendly and efficient way!

The cabin was just as described. Beautiful, comfortable and well stocked. My only suggestions would be a pull out couch/futon to provide at least 6 beds. Good communication with manager.

Whether it is skiing, sightseeing, hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, white water rafting, sunbathing, or just relaxing around a campfire, this home offers them all nearby in the ultimate beauty of Colorado. A 4 wheel drive is usually needed in the winter to ascend the short driveway.
