As you arrive at the cabin in early evening, a small group of deer raise their heads from the grass to see who the new guests are. Several hundred feet in the distance, the cabin can be seen; the deck and stairs seem to be illuminated by tiny stars. Stepping inside the door, the real-cabin interior is very present – log walls, hardwood floors, wood-paneled roof. The wide open living space includes a well-furnished kitchen, an elegant dining area, a very comfortable living area, and, of course, a log burning fireplace. The warmth of the Rocky Mountain southwestern décor is tastefully present throughout the cabin. Despite the rustic feel of the cabin, you realize that you’ll be lacking very little in the way of modern comforts – land phone, three big screen televisions with satellite cable and DVD players complete with a library of movies, and a wireless internet connection. The bedrooms are as warm and inviting as the main living area with queen-size beds and comfortable furnishings. In the last few moments of daylight, you peer out, just as the deer had peered at you from the grass, and view that you are in rugged seclusion in a true, Rocky Mountain cabin.

About the owner: My wife and I had a growing family and wanted our children to have a place where they could explore the landscape and develop a respect and love for nature. As a couple, we also have been able to have alone time to rejuvinate our marriage.
Why the Owner Chose Cripple Creek: We chose this property because of it's privacy, fantatic view, and proximity to many attractrions.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: We love getting up early in the morning to have coffee and watch the deer walk though the grassy knoll for an early morning snack.
