Overview

About the property

Mountain Views *Pet friendly * 3 Bedrooms/2 Baths-Sleeps 8 *Hot tub * Kids Fort

Our cabin is 2200 sq ft., located 14 miles north of Woodland Park in Westcreek, across the road from Pike National Forest. Westcreek is an old mining town with loads of history. Creekside Cabin is nestled among 60 year old giant pines and cottonwoods, on 40 beautiful acres, with groupings of rock formations. An old rock fort for the kids.. A large rock fire pit, and smaller fire place outside the hot tub room.

As one of our guests stated, 'It is soothing to soul,' and it is!!

The sounds of Westcreek bubbling past the front of the cabin will simply wash away all the stresses that can accumulate with everyday life. There is quiet solitude with sounds of nature all around. There is an abundance of furry friends...and hummingbirds galore. We now have 3 red tail hawk, 3 Golden Eagle and 2 Bald Eagle that hunt our property. In the early morning or evening you will likely see our resident deer coming to drink from the creek, red fox, or blue heron on the water. One neighbor even spotted a Moose last Spring.

Down by the creek enjoy a game of horseshoes, or a game of bolo golf aka ladder golf, some call it hillbilly golf.

The cabin is newly renovated, with a large open floor plan. We do however try to limit our guests to 8 for the comfort of all.

The master bedroom is large with private bath, TV, a wood fireplace in the center of the room, and a reading area looking out to the pine covered hillside.

There is nothing more relaxing at the end of your day than a soak in the private hot tub, looking out to the stars and sipping a glass of our complimentary Colorado wine. If you're lucky it will be a full moon and you can use nature to light the room with a soft romantic glow.

Lots of games and puzzles.

We are close enough to everything, yet far enough to be away from it all....Pay us a visit, you won't regret it, in fact once you're here you'll never want to leave!!

About Jim or Deb Bruner

Jim and Deb are both Colorado natives. I know strange but true. Jim grew up in Colorado Springs but spent every weekend here in Westcreek and moved here permanently as a young man. Deb grew up in Denver and moved to Westcreek with her two daughters in 1998. Jim was also a single parent of two daughters. They met after Deb joined the Volunteer Fire Department where Jim had been training captain for 13 years. We absolutely can't think of another place we would ever want to live and feel blessed to be living our dream...

Jim or Deb Bruner purchased this cabin in 1950

Why Jim or Deb Bruner chose Castle Rock Area

This property has been in Jim's family years. Jim's grandfather purchased this property over 60 years ago when he and the owner couldn't come to an agreement over him fishing in the creek. It was of course private property. He told the owner if he would just sell him some of the property they wouldn't have to have this argument every time he came up to fish. The owner finally agreed to sell him a portion of the acreage and the rest is history. We love sharing the cabin and helping to make a special getaways that will make the kind of memories for others that we have...

What makes this cabin unique

The location is perfect. Just off Hwy 67 on a well maintained county road. However you are away from everything. Our guests have described it as 'A Little Piece of Heaven'. Another called it 'Soothing to the Soul' There are so many things to do within a short distance for those who are active. We have some who barely leave the cabin, just content to soak up nature. Kids love the creek and the stone fort on the hill. Not to mention several tree swings around the property. It has something for everyone, even our furry members of the family.

"Outstanding!"



One of the most relaxing places we have ever stayed as a family.



Many thanks go to owners Jim and Deb...they are wonderful hosts who went out of their way to accommodate our visit. There was simply nothing we needed they hadn't already thought of.



It is safe to say, we found this property to be much better than advertised. If you are looking for a comfortable place in the mountains to get away and relax, don't pass this one up.

Cozy cabin in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This place was the perfect spot to get away and relax. We loved every minute and didn't want to leave. The view is to die for, so much to do, and so many ways to enjoy yourself and relax. Clean and cozy. Laundry onsite, full equipped kitchen, nice fireplace, hot tub, Netflix, creek out front, two firepits, etc.

A beautiful place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

The hosts have equipped the cabin with everything you need. Our dogs especially loved it and because we were far enough off the road we didn't have to worry about them getting hit by a car. Peaceful, tranquil, soothing this place has it all. The only thing I would note is if you need to use your cell phone get with your service provider BEFORE you go about options. it's not just spotty it's non existent. We had both AT&T and Verizon and neither would work. I was able to receive and send emails and texts thru their internet and they have a land line available. We had to drive back towards Woodland Park in order to have cell service. While I'm sure it's nice not to have to worry about cell service during vacation unfortunately that's not an option for me. I highly recommend this cabin to all.
