Property description

Come enjoy our beautiful mountain retreat!!! We are conveniently located near Pikes Peak, Cripple Creek, Woodland Park and approximately 25 miles to Colorado Springs.
Only 5 miles to the nearest grocery store, gas station, and some restaurants.
Relax and unwind in the hot tub and enjoy the lava bowl in the evenings. Drop a line in the lake to fish during the summer months and there is ice fishing in the winter (depending on the time of year). There is a nominal fee for fishing and NO Colorado license is required. The lake is open for summer fishing from May through September. We provide the poles, tackle and 14ft row boat if you are more adventurous (no fee for the use of the boat)!! Life jackets are required and age limits do apply.
On the main level you will enjoy the living, dining, kitchen, master bedroom and full bath. Take a moment to open up the French doors that lead to the deck and grill something delicious while enjoying 2 acres acre of forest. Keep your eye out for the deer that frequent the area morning and evening.
If you would like to cozy up to a fire, or enjoy a good book, head downstairs to the walk-out family room where you will find an inviting wood stove and a comfortable sofa and glider. There is a full bath and a laundry room (with laundry supplies) downstairs as well.
The home has a fully equipped kitchen for you to enjoy -all you need is the food you like! We provide coffee, tea, sugar, creamer, spices, condiments and cooking/spraying oil. Feel free to pack a picnic lunch with the cooler we provide and head down to one of the lakes to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner, there are several picnic benches, a volleyball net and a restroom. They are located down the road (just a half of a mile away). There is ample parking next to the lake if you would prefer to drive.
There are so many attractions in the area! From enjoying Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs, Garden of the Gods, Cripple Creek, Wolf Sanctuary, the Air Force Academy, ATV and trails, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, hunting, golfing, wineries, breweries, Santa's Village, Cave of the Winds and restaurants, there is something to enjoy for everyone!

***If the dates you would like are not available for this cabin, please contact me!!! We have another cabin that we are remodeling and hope to have on VRBO by December 2015!! It is 3 bedrooms, 1 bath and very cozy and cute!! It will have a 6 person hot tub, WIFI and cable too. However, this little cabin is not in the area with the private lakes. It IS closer to Divide though, so please don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested. I will list it on VRBO as soon as we get the remodeling complete!***

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hi, Henry and I (Robin) have lived in Colorado for 25 years and love the Rocky Mountains. It has been a wonderful place to raise our kids. We have explored many of the attractions here and there are things for all ages to enjoy! When we moved to Colorado, we could hardly wait until our children were old enough to explore with us. When their grandparents retired here, they began teaching them how to fish for trout at the Rampart Range Reservoir. Being able to catch their limit has never been an issue! We hope that you take the time to come to Colorado to relax, have fun and make some great memories!

Why the Owner Chose Divide:
We spent a lot of time looking for a special place to get away and relax. When we found this property, we fell in love with the lakes, views and wildlife. Each time we have stayed here we have had deer come into the backyard early morning and evening. Having a place large enough for our immediate and extended family was important in case we wanted to get away to celebrate a special occasion. This mountain home's layout lends itself to privacy for more than one family. Be ready for a photo opportunity when driving to the house because elk herds frequent the area! Pack a picnic lunch and sit by the lake! There are several covered picnic benches and a bathroom by the lake as well. Drop a fishing line in the lake and catch a trout (we provide the poles and tackle)!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home has a hot tub, wifi, lava bowl, play gym and a glider on the front covered porch. There are so many things to do in this area including, hiking, fishing, hunting, snowshoeing, Cripple Creek, Woodland Park, Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs or Colorado Springs to explore!
