Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Custom home built in 2009 on 35 fenced and gated acres. Amazing views of the mountains with one of the best Pike's Peak views around.

Total seclusion yet only 1.5 miles to US Hwy 24 on a well maintained County Road. 6.5 miles from Woodland Park, a town of 10,000 which provides several grocery stores and numerous restaurants and services. 30 minutes from Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs with many tourist oriented activities and shopping. Hike the property and additional 25 acres across the road or lounge on one of 2 decks and enjoy the solitude with plenty of visiting wildlife, including the large Elk herd on the adjacent 1200 acre ranch.

Bag a “14 er” and climb Pikes Peak, or hike many of the different trails nearby. Close by there is world class fly fishing, mountain biking, unsurpassed Colorado snow skiing and white water rafting. You can also try your luck gambling at the historic Cripple Creek Mining District, a beautiful 20 mile drive.

This home has many upgrades including hickory cabinets with granite countertops in the kitchen and both baths, stainless steel appliances, tile and wood floors in living room and kitchen, bedrooms with carpeting, in floor heat, 46” plasma flat screen TV with surround sound (including the deck), Wi-Fi, 2 decks, one covered, and much more.

You're certain to have a wonderful and unforgettable Colorado vacation for just the two of you or for the entire family. This property is shared with another vacation rental they reside 750 yards apart and cannot be seen from each other. You can reserve both homes on the property for a larger group.

We do keep the driveway well plowed of snow in the winter, however the driveway does have a few ups and downs, so we do recommend 4 wheel drive in the winter and spring months.

Why Kyle, Brad and Laura Eicher chose Divide

We have lived in this area for many years and were fortunate to have been able to purchase this beautiful piece of property. As a home builder we have built both homes on this property for the enjoyment of family and friends and have now extended the invitation for you and your family to enjoy as well.

This property offers so much, from hiking, bird watching, wildlife viewing to winter fun including sledding and snowshoeing. We do provide a selection of snowshoes and sleds for our guests to use. It also provides an opportunity to relax, sit on the deck and enjoy absolute solitude while drinking coffee, enjoying the visiting birds and hummingbirds and basking in the warm sunshine with majestic Pike's Peak as a backdrop.

Best Trip Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

My new husband and I stayed here 4 nights for our honeymoon in Colorado. We had the most wonderful time! The cabin was exactly as described and the pictures do not do it justice! The view was incredible and the hot tub was amazing. We have absolutely no complaints at all. It was perfect!

Great holiday in Divide

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, daughter and I spent 6 days in the cabin in August. It was the highlight of our trip to America this year.

The cabin made a fantastic base from which to explore the local area. It was very clean, extremely comfortable and well equipped.

The cabin offers wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. We all enjoyed watching the wildlife, particularly the humming birds feeding from the feeder located on the porch. During our stay we also saw blue jays, deer, squirrels and two calves.

We particularly liked the “eco-friendliness” of the cabin. The solar power was able to cater for almost all of our energy needs, although the back-up generator did step in to provide additional power if required.

We would definitely recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a fantastic holiday home from which to explore the many local attractions.

My 2nd trip here and can’t wait to come back!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the perfect spot to trip hop all over Colorado. We brought our kids this trip and they loved the train, Pikes Peak, site seeing, and shopping. We drove to Copper Mountain and went snow tubing and even spent time in Cripple Creek gambling. This location and house are perfect! We’ve spent time in the summer and winter here and it’s aleays great. Always clean, perfect views, and very friendly owners. We will definitely be coming back.

Great. Great. (Did I mention Great?)

  • 5 of 5

I suck because I should've done this review 4 years ago, the first time we visited this BEAUTIFUL home! But since we came back again the week before Christmas this year, I thought this was the best time to do it, because it was pretty much awesome twice!! WE. LOVE. THIS. PLACE. It had everything you need to have an amazing time (full appliances, toiletries, etc), minus your own clothes of course. We love vacay rentals and this is literally one of our faves. Easy arrival and check in. Very comfortable with our 6 people and had room for more with the addition of the futon they added upstairs in the loft since our last visit. Amazing views and it started snowing after day 2 of being there!! SCORE!! Close to grocery stores and the cute town of Woodland Park, and only 15 or so min from Pikes Peak. Go to the local 4-screen movie theater in town! They show all the new releases (we saw Star Wars:The Last Jedi with the kids) and they serve beer and wine, too for great prices!

We only had one issue with the radiant heat in the loft, (no a/c or furnace: the home is heated through the fireplace and radiant heat in the floors), but the Eichers were VERY responsive and fixed the issue within the hour of us asking about it! They even left a note on the door and texted us to let us know that they took care of it! Wow...awesome folks! I wouldn't be surprised if we came back again! Book it! You won't be mad!

Gorgeous setting with acres of trees and views of Pikes Peak. Cabin was comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin....gathering to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary and Xmas together. We loved the large windows with breathtaking mountain views. We hiked the grounds, made wonderful meals in the large kitchen, sat by the fireplace, played card games, and enjoyed the hot tub. We will definitely plan a trip back to stay here. It is a gem!!
