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.

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.

Beautiful, Clean and Very Secluded!

  • 4 of 5

This was the cleanest cabin we have ever stayed in! The owners were so accommodating and easy to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here relaxing as a family, watching the flock of turkeys early in the morning and even the deer that walked right next to the cabin one evening. The only issues we had were no central air conditioning (during the first of July), and we were unable to get any Wi-Fi reception so had no cell phone service. Other than this, we loved it and would love to return someday!

Owner's Response: Hi Maury...thank you for being such wonderful guests. We appreciate how well you cared for our home. By the way, I have added a wifi booster for the house so you can get online in every room now. In the Colorado mountains there's rarely air conditioning. It's normally 13 degrees cooler than Canon City. Blessings, John

Quiet cabin in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here at the cabin. The views are amazing! The cabin is fully stocked with just about everything you could possibly need (we bought a colander and left for others to use). Super cozy and done very nicely. Lots of puzzles/games to pass the time too. We had lots of visitors including a flock of turkey. The area is very quiet. We did not have any issues with traffic or neighbors. It did get a little hot with the high's in the 90's but didn't take long to cool off with the windows open. I do wish we would have had a fan to draw in the cooler air upstairs. we had to go to bed hot one night (there is no A/C). The wifi was not great at all. you have to be in the corner of the dining room or the bedroom with the kind bed to get a weak signal and even when you got signal it was slow. I needed to use it for an hour for work but had a hard time. If you walk down the driveway closer to the other buildings the signal was way better... We didn't come here for the wifi so it wasn't a huge deal but it was disappointing. Overall we would stay here again especially if we didn't have plans to explore/venture out to Canon City or Colorado Springs. Having the ability to use a washer/dryer was great also!!
