Divide cabin description

Welcome to our “Cabin in the Woods” located on five rural acres in beautiful Divide, Colorado! From the moment you enter through the secure iron gate and drive down the winding driveway to the cabin the peace and tranquility of the area will settle upon you like a blanket. The gentle wind blowing through the grove of Aspens and fir trees whispers a sweet “Velkommen”!

I was born and raised in Hammerfest, Norway, known as the northernmost town in the world! There the winters were long, dark and extremely cold. The summers were short, lasting perhaps 4-6 weeks, but balmy and brightened by the Midnight Sun. After immigrating to the United States I missed the mountains and scenery of my homeland, which is why I love living in Colorado so much! The majestic views of Pikes Peak and the Rockies remind me of my childhood home.

When you enter our cabin you will notice the beautiful natural hickory hardwood floors on the main level as well as rustic décor and touches throughout. The living area has a comfortable leather recliner/rocker and sofa. There is a 46” HD flat screen TV and cable programming offered by DirecTV as well as a Blue Ray DVD player.

The dining table seats six people when the extra leaf is used. Additional seating is provided by four barstools at the kitchen counter.

The kitchen is stocked with dishes, glassware, flatware, pots & pans, etc. Besides the glass top electric stove, refrigerator and dishwasher you will also find smaller appliances such as a hand mixer, waffle iron, blender, rice cooker and coffee maker.

The master bedroom is located on the main level and features a comfortable king-sized bed. There is a 40” HD flat screen TV with DVD player in this bedroom for your enjoyment.

The full bathroom on the main floor is located just outside of the master bedroom and offers a tub/shower combination, sink vanity and toilet. Just beyond the bathroom is a laundry closet where a full-sized washer and dryer are available for your convenience.

Upstairs you will find the second bedroom, which features a queen-sized bed. Also located on the upper level, the third bedroom has the capacity to sleep three people in the twin bunk beds and additional twin sized bed. The bathroom on the upper level has a shower, sink vanity and toilet.

All bedrooms are furnished with quality linens and bedding and the bathrooms are stocked with soft bath towels, hand towels and washcloths. Each bathroom has a hair dryer provided, and you will find an iron & ironing board in the laundry closet.

Outside there is a spacious wrap around deck where you can enjoy your meals “al fresco” or your morning coffee while soaking in the beauty of the natural surroundings. There is a propane grill on the deck for your use if you wish to grill your dinner.

There is so much to experience and enjoy at our Cabin in the Woods! The Aspen trees on our acreage remind me so much of my childhood home in Norway. Here my wife and two children take long exciting “nature walks”. We thoroughly love exploring our own land as well as nearby national forest. Wildlife abounds everywhere. We often see deer, some accompanied by their newborn fawns. There are elk, foxes, rabbits and occasionally we might see a mother bear with her cubs! Majestic eagles soar, as well as hawks, owls, songbirds and humming birds.

You will be within easy distance of many attractions in and around Colorado Springs, the old historic Cripple Creek, the majestic 14.115 ft. Pikes Peak and enjoy fishing in crystal clear mountain lakes and streams. I once took the cogwheel train from Manitou Springs up to the dizzying heights of Pikes Peak, where Katharine Lee Bates in 1893 received her inspiration to write the song America the Beautiful. You can also drive to the top of the mountain for a modest fee - that is if you are not too faint of heart!

Finally toward evening as the glorious Colorado sun sets, come home to your Cabin in the Woods and enjoy a family meal on the spacious deck. Here feel the cooling breezes of approaching evening rustling the leaves of the Aspen trees, watch families of deer come close to your private gathering, and watch hummingbirds hovering close and hear song birds serenade. Be sure to have your camera ready. You might just get pictures you will treasure for years to come.

Our children (7 and 4 years old) cavort outdoors from early till late. They catch butterflies, pick wildflowers for their mom and wonder in amazement over dragonflies, grasshoppers, caterpillars, huge tiger moths, and smaller moths and butterflies with wings of every hue. This last summer they found many bird’s nests, including a humming bird nest with the mother bird tending her tiny eggs. Many educational hours were spent spying on hatching birds, bunny babies and other wild creatures!

If you enjoy unspoiled nature, fresh mountain air, privacy and a chance to “get away from it all”, this is the place for you!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: Norway is my native country. I was born and raised in Hammerfest, Norway, known as the northernmost town in the world! My favorite pastime was skiing in the winter and trout and salmon fishing in the brief summers. I came to the USA as a teenage emigrant, crossing the border at a check point between the USA and Canada Christmas eve 1957. I consider that the best Christmas gift I ever received! For many years I lived in the flatlands but always dreaming of being able to make my home in Colorado. The opportunity came in 1977 when I came to Denver to do graduate studies.

              Why the Owner Chose Divide:
              My wife and I first bought mountain property at Grand Lake, CO near Winter Park. How we loved and enjoyed our weekends and summers at that place! However, after several years in Grand Lake we decided to migrate south…about 150 miles. So we purchased Cabin in the Woods in Divide, Colorado on 5 acres of aspen, evergreens and a meadow covered in wildflowers. Part of the reason we bought Cabin in the Woods is its proximity to many attractions in and around Colorado Springs, historic Cripple Creek, majestic Pikes Peak and fishing in crystal clear lakes and streams.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              There is so much for us to experience and enjoy here! The aspen trees remind me of my childhood home in Norway. My wife and two children take long exciting “nature walks”. exploring our own land as well as nearby national forest. Wildlife abounds everywhere. There are deer, some accompanied by their newborn fawns. We see elk, foxes, bunnies and occasionally a mother bear with her cubs! Majestic eagles soar, along with hawks, owls, songbirds, and humming birds. Our children, - 7 and 4 years old love to cavort outdoors from early till late. They catch butterflies, pick wildflowers for their mom and wonder in amazement over dragonflies, grasshoppers, caterpillars, huge tiger moths and butterflies with wings of every hue. We know that you will love our Cabin in the Woods as much as my family and I!
