Excellent, beyond expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin and location are beyond my farthest expectations. It is secluded and at the same time near enough stores that with some planning it is perfect. The view from the porch of the distant mountain range is wonderful. We were visited by wild turkeys everyday and saw deer frequently on the roads and fields nearby. This was my third trip to the "cabin" and unlike other places I have visited that weren't as good the second time this one is like a new experience every time. I would highly recommend this location to anyone wanting to escape and have a peaceful and restful vacation. I also got to meet the owners in person this trip and they too are outstanding, his only fault is he eats green chilli with breakfast which is not normal.

This quaint little cabin was our piece of Heaven for 10 days. So peaceful and clean. The view from the front deck is breath taking. There were turkeys and beautiful birds in the yard each morning. We seen deer every night as we were driving back into the cabin. The location was perfect. We traveled to Pike's peak, St.Elmo( you must go there and feed the chipmunks). We took our RZRs with us drove out to trails. We were with in 90 minutes of everything we wanted to do. I can't wait to go back!!!

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly as described, we couldn't have been any happier with our stay. We enjoyed our stay very much. We had turkeys and deer in the front yard to enjoy viewing. Went for walks and exploring around the grounds on the boulders. Sat on the porch and just enjoyed the view.

Beautiful cabin in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Very well kept big cabin on a mountain in the mountains. A nice 30min drive to all your needs. Royal Gorge is the closest attraction and white water rafting companies. Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak and 7 Falls about an hour away. We used the kitchen almost every day for meals and had plenty of cookware and eatery. Was so thankful there was coffee too! Loved that it had all the amenities of home. Unbeatable views from the fantastic front porch!! We had great weather, a little rain but just perfect!

Nice Vacation Home!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, spacious and well stocked (no need to worry about running out of towels or paper products). The pictures posted are 100% accurate and we appreciated the thoughtful decor and attention to detail. Our boys had fun finding animals bones, rock climbing and chasing lizards – lots to explore right on the property. We recommend the Royal Gorge, a visit to Buena Vista, have a picnic + go fishing at Cottonwood Lake (near BV), ride the tram at the Monarch Crest and buy a bucket of rocks for the kids to dig through at the Gold Mine Rock Shop in Canon City.

Couple things to keep in mind…the drive from the main highway to the house is 30 minutes and another 10 minutes to the main part of Canon City.

Also, the owners may stay overnight in the outbuilding next door on your last day. Just a little heads up for others that may wonder who is parked or knocking on the door towards the end of your stay. With that being said, they were friendly and easy to work with from beginning to end.

Secluded Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for about four days on our Colorado tour. The cabin was about 30 min outside of town and very secluded. The intermittant wifi and cell signal were a little unexpected but we wanted to "unplug" with the family so lots of board games and horseshoes it was. The cabin had absolutely everything we needed and the property is breathtaking. We were visited by turkeys and deer while there. We absolutely loved the ease of rental with the owner and it was very clean upon arrival. Made lots of memories and would recommend for families as there is plenty of space.
