Florissant cabin description

Perfect for a romantic getaway, this cozy cabin is located in the mountains on a small lake, only 14 miles from the historic gaming town of Cripple Creek, Colorado. You can relax in a peaceful setting, nestled in the aspens of a picturesque valley. Wake up to the deer grazing near the cabin and the quiet solitude of the mountains. The cabin has a bedroom with a queen-sized bed along with a futon upstairs for sitting or sleeping. Outside the bedroom is a covered sitting area. The downstairs consists of the kitchen, bathroom, and a living room. TV Service is provided by Direct TV and includes HBO on the big screen tv. As of December 23 we now have satellite WiFi. Free local and long distance telephone service are also available. A wood stove provides quiet, comfortable warmth and firewood is provided by your host. Through the patio doors you can enjoy the deck with a barbecue grill and patio furniture, overlooking the lake which is only a one minute walk from the cabin. This is a perfect little getaway to spend time in the mountains, yet still enjoy the proximity to gambling, restaurants, and tourist attractions. This year the county paved the gravel road to within a mile of the cabin. You can safely ride your motorcycle to the cabin in the nice weather.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

Why the Owner Chose Florissant:
It is very difficult to find property in Colorado which is located on water. I had known some of the previous owners so when it became available, it was an easy decision. It is not for the prim and proper as a guest said, but if you want to spend peaceful time with someone you love, I think you will love it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Warm, secluded and private , yet easily accessible.
