Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: Mark and I grew up in the midwest, (Indiana and Michigan). With our love for the mountains, we decided Colorado was the place for us. After exploring the Cripple Creek area, we found much gold mining history here and a need for extra lodging. Peggy had an interest in owning a bed and breakfast since the early 1980's. The dream came true in 2004 after two hard years of work and building the facility then Whispering Pines opened. Since then, we realized what a great location this really is and decided to share the building as a Vacation Home Rental.
Why the Owner Chose Cripple Creek:
Whispering Pines is the best Vacation Rental for the price in this area. Our 8700 sq. ft. property was built as a bed and breakfast in 2002 and opened in 2004, now a vacation rental. We can accommodate 16 adults comfortably. With so many attractions within and hours drive or less, it is the perfect place for family vacations or company retreats. Our guests realize the value they receive when renting our place. We feature eight bedrooms with attached baths (most with hydrotherpy air bathtubs), a well equipped kitchen and laundry room, a huge wrap-around covered deck and the best mountain views in the area. Also, great hiking areas, gold mine tours and wildlife sightings, along with gambling and lots of restaurants just minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This building was designed and built by the owners with beautiful surroundings. It was built and designed as a B and B in mind but is an excellent vacation rental. This property is unique in a sense that most of the bedrooms have private attached baths with hydrotherapy air bathtubs. Three which have two person tubs! We challenge any other vacation home rental in this area to have better mountain views than we have here and we also see the Canon City night lights from most of our windows! You will love the wicker swings on the covered deck too! You will not find better value for your money for you and your family in this area.
