"How much did we enjoy CAVU Cabin? Well, we stayed 10 nights and hoped for more. Two highlights of the cabin for us were the location and the instantly comfortable or cozy feeling you sense when entering.
CAVU's location on six acres on a wooded hillside provides a pleasant view and incredible solitude. We were in Buena Vista for 4-wheeling on some of the spectacular trails in the area. Buena Vista, the hub for many of the trails, is a scenic 25 minute drive from CAVU. The drive sounded a little inconvenient at first, but quickly became a pleasant "commute."
When not on a trail, time passed quickly at CAVU while napping, sitting on the deck reading or just staring. One night we were treated to a spectacular lightning storm near Colorado Springs for about 30 minutes.
CAVU is not a sterile rental unit. It is a cabin, a home, pure and simple. Open the refrigerator and there are two Brita water pitchers. Leave the mud room for the boardwalk to the garage and hear the screen door slam behind you. Anything you need is on a shelf, in a drawer or cabinet, or in the next room.
The ambiance at CAVU forces you to slow down and sense things, have thoughts, that are too often lost in the wake of today's hectic lifestyles."

"This is a beautiful lake-side setting at the end of a quiet private road. The house has a wrap-around deck that was perfect for our evening meals with a view of the lake. The house is well-appointed with pretty much everything we needed. Good selection of pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave, utensils (including a citrus zester, to our surprise and delight), spices, condiments - the basic stuff you need and much more. Lost a button on my shorts and found a needle and thread to re-attach, for example. Beautiful wooded setting with a bit of wildlife (we saw deer and a variety of birds including belted kingfisher, western meadowlark, egrets and others). Another reason we we chose this place was because it was OK to bring our dog, who thoroughly enjoyed the large lot.
This was our first experience with a VRBO. Recommend calling the owner (vs. e-mail) for questions. The owner was very nice and spelled everything out in detail about getting the key, and finding the place, etc. It's about 20 minutes outside Woodland Park where there are reasonable grocery stores and other places to get supplies. It was probably 40 minutes or so to Colorado Springs attractions like Garden of the Gods and Red Rock Canyon."

"The location is fabulous and the property, an in-law unit, was equipped with everything we needed. It's located in a woodsy, residential area right next to a variety of hiking trails. We saw a deer and even a small bear, which was a big thrill for us. It was an unusually hot period in Colorado Springs and the air conditioners worked well but were loud so we opted for using the overhead fans. We would gladly stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends."

"We loved our stay at The Inn at Potter's Inn / Aspen's Ridge! What a great place! Everything is nice, and the staff have an exceptional knack for decorating and furnishing the facility in just the right way, filling it with beauty that is refreshing. The spacious sitting area around the huge wood fireplace, and under the massive wood beams is beautiful! The staff are great, warm and attentive to details. I recommend it whole heartedly!!"
