About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful Mountain Cabin! Our beautiful mountain home. Please inquire specifically about dates/prices. VRBO has forced us to state just one rate for the summer season.

You will fall in love with this very private,very clean cabin/home on 5 forested acres! Your beautiful mountain home awaits you. Something for every season! This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home of about 1,900 sq. feet is perfect and cozy for one or two families! Step right out of your private beautiful mountain home into 5 acres of alpine forest. Great wildlife viewing on property! A short walk can take you to the foot of thousands of acres of National Forest. Here you will have the best of both worlds. A forest playground is at your doorstep while at the same time ammenities like restaurants, bars, shopping, and more are 12 minutes away. This is a clean, fresh, and detailed home with newer amenities.

This beautifully furnished home/property is very immaculate and custom. You will enjoy this private setting on the end of a culdesac with pines and aspens surrounding you.

This gorgeous log-sided home, offers 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. The interior of the house has beautiful pine tongue and groove siding throughout, oak hardwood floors and saltillo tile with custom fixtures. You won’t want to leave!

Your new mountain vacation home has a beautiful dining room, a living room, a bar/kitchen with large windows overlooking the forest and a back deck. The dining room seats 4-6 and the breakfast bar seats 6. A wood burning fireplace/stove is perched atop a brick platform and mantle in the main living space.

The furnishings in the living room and dining room consist of an aspen log cushioned couch and reading chair, a cushioned log rocking chair, a single cushioned log chair, a pine Prince and Princess chair with cypress wood table, an aspen coffee table, log lamp, a dark wood dining table and chair set from the mountains of Michoacan Mexico, and a pioneer wagon wheel bench. The warmth of this home is accentuated with all of the finely crafted wood details that cover the entire interior space. Add to that the live plants positioned in perfect places throughout the home. We have cable television on a Flat Screen television and wireless internet.

Enter the 1st bedroom, the “Bear Room” where you will find a well appointed room with a queen bed. Beautiful new hardwood floors, and a wagon wheel bench. Sharing the same hallway is the “Country Room” featuring a log queen bed, and a beautiful log chair. These rooms have direct access to a beautiful bathroom with pine walls, a rock walled shower with tub, a pedestal sink, and a saltillo tiled floor.

Walk past the dining room and you will enter the “Deer Room.” This is a southern exposure room with lots of light which highlights a queen aspen log bed. A full attached bath provides easy access and comfort for the occupant of the Deer Room. From here, go downstairs where you will be delighted to see a laundry room with a full washer and dryer and another bedroom.

The “Bunk Room” has a large, sturdy wood bunk bed, a TV and DVD player and is great for adults, teenagers and kids! The lower level has an access door leading to the backyard/forest.

Step foot outside into the forest and venture up the “deer” trail to the top of the hill. There you will be welcomed by a cozy bench with an incredible view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Bring your coffee or a glass of wine for this private viewing. You will feel like you are on top of the world! There are other outdoor sitting/relaxing areas at the barn, on the platform with adirondack chairs, and in the hammock between two large pine trees.

If you should feel like you need to explore beyond the National Forest and your cozy cabin home, there are a multitude of things to do in nearby areas. We are only one hour and fifteen minutes from Monarch Ski Resort and Woodland Park is close by where there is great dining, the Dinosaur Museum, and shopping. The Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument and Museum is around the corner and Colorado Springs is just down the pass. If you feel like gambling you can be in the historic mining town of Cripple Creek in no time.

During the winter, you will enjoy sledding down a hill on the property and playing in the snow. Only 1 hour 25 minutes to skiing.

In the fall come visit this mountain home to see the beautiful changing of the Aspen leaves. The famous Gold Belt Tour Scenic Byway is a ‘must do’ drive during the autumn season.

And of course, summer time in the Rockies is unmatched. The Aspens are in full bloom and a sprinkling of wildflowers splash color across the landscape.

This is the Pikes Peak backcountry in all its splendor. Enjoy. * Please note a $200 fully refundable damage deposit is required. We do not include this in the auto-rates with VRBO as we do not cash these upon receipt, but shred them after departure as a courtesy for our guests.

About Marc and Angel Dettenrieder

This is a magical home. This cabin used to be our primary home before we had to move. It is private and beautiful. It is very custom and clean. We left all of our custom/original furnishings so this is not a 'garage sale' vacation rental. Everyone loves our custom details! Angel is a teacher and university instructor and Marc is an elected official-Teller County Commissioner.

Marc and Angel Dettenrieder purchased this cabin in 2002

Amazing home, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO so we weren't sure what to expect. We were looking for a secluded location to relax and enjoy the beauty of Colorado and the mountains. Everything about this house was perfect and totally exceeded our expectation. We got home yesterday evening and are already planning a return visit!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This house is simply exceptional! We loved our stay. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you might need. The house was clean and beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed watching chipmunks and all the birds. It is far away from nearest town that we had a feeling like we are the only people around for miles but then close enough that if we wante to go there it didn't take long. It was perfect place to come to after a long day of hiking and exploring. Thank you so much.

Very nice secluded mountain get away!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we greatly enjoyed our short stay at this mountain retreat. Just a couple quirks were noted however. The contract required us to put a load of towels in the washer before we left, and to put all the clean dishes away. I own a VRBO in Las Vegas so I'm not new to this business. Although it isn't a big deal these tasks are what I pay a cleaning crew to do! In addition, the house was not very clean! The ceiling fan in the kitchen was gross! and there were cob webs everywhere we looked. The owners really need to do some quality control on their cleaning crew, and insist that they clean it completely. And the cleaning crew is paid to put the dishes away and wash the towels -- not the guests!

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing a review. This guest forgot to bring the address and directions to the property as well as the lockbox number before he left for his trip. With that in mind, he obviously could not find the place and became very angry. He called and left a screaming message while we were at work that he was going to turn around and go home if we didn't call back immediately. We called back within a few minutes and gave him the address, directions and his personal code that he failed to bring with him. Most people find our home immaculate. It is very common for vacation home owners to request that a load of towels be placed in the washer before departure (we provide supplies). It is simply a request. By no means, is it a requirement and most guests are extremely happy to help out in any way they can- as most people fall in love and treat it as their own home. We take pride in our home and the beauty and cleanliness of it, and we tend to it often. It is a very custom, and unique home that we put a lot of work and pride into. After your departure, you indicated you would be planning another trip next year to stay at our home again, so we are happy to hear that you still had a good experience. The erratic correspondence from the inception of this booking, until departure, was interesting. We appreciate you letting us know about the ceiling fan. You were kind in your final email to us, telling us what a great time you had and your intent to return, so this review comes as a surprise to us. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review. We would welcome you back at any time. :) Take care.

We loved the house and the property.

  • 4 of 5

Our only issue was with the internet service which we know can be sketchy in the mountains.
