|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Come enjoy the scenic beauty of Colorado. Sit on the wrap around deck and grill your favorite dinner while watching the wildlife below. Perfect for couples and families with older kids. Then soak in the outdoor hot tub and enjoy the amazing stars above! Our two bedroom, one bathroom, modern house with cathedral glass windows includes a spacious living room and kitchen. The game room comes complete with coffee bar, pool table and ping pong table. NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 6: high decks, bears, steep property. In the winter we are 1 1/2 hour drive from Breckenridge Ski resort. Just close enough to ski all day and come back home, rest your aching muscles in the hot tub and have a great night’s sleep. In the summer hike the many trails, ride horses, and climb Pikes Peak. Go shopping in historic Manitou Springs or take a tour of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. This place is truly amazing with something for everyone!
Both being musicians and writers, our house is a place for creativity and reflection. Our house is 14 years old and we built it with the thought of it being a refuge from travel and a crazy on-the-road life. It has been all we dreamed of and more!

Perfect for couples.
NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 6.
Our house sits on 4 gorgeous acres covered with aspen and pine trees. With coffee mug in hand, we often walk the road that loops around our mountain and enjoy the fresh morning air. It is quiet neighborhood where residents respect nature and appreciate the serenity that mountain life offers. The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac with two mountain chalets either side. Wildlife abounds. Deer, elk, fox, rabbit and even Colorado brown bear are a common sight. We are six miles from the cozy western town of Cripple Creek with its silver mine, horse back riding, train, and casinos. Muller State Park and The Crags are both a 10 minute drive; where you can hike and even see elk and long horn sheep.
The views were amazing and we saw a double rainbow! It was the perfect place to spend our 25th anniversary. We celebrated by taking a jeep tour up Pikes Peak. Your home is beautiful!

We were warned that the only bathroom was downstairs while master bedroom, living area & kitchen were upstairs. Not the best layout. Stairway is narrow & steep. Not fun for late night head calls. Worst problem was lack of wifi. Password apparently recently changed & no amount of attempts to connect were successful. No response from owner after a trip to Divide to send a help message. Not much fun with no cell phone or wifi service. Thankfully DIRECTV kept us up to date on weather. House is nice & view is breath taking. We probably won't request permission to stay there again.
The perfect getaway for an anniversary! The cabin is tucked away in the mountains, yet close to everything! We visited Mueller State Park, Lake George, and of course Garden of the Gods. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We Loved It!!!
As soon as you walk in the door, you get a sense of being "home". The cabin is comfortable and has anything and everything you could think of needing - plus more! The cabin is tucked nicely in the mountain, but easy to find and navigate the surrounding area. It is clear to see that the owners cherish their cabin, as it was well taken care of, clean and many extra little touches to make it a great stay. Communicating with Carrie was so easy; she kept the communication open and replied in a timely manner, and we felt that they truly cared for our stay as well - we weren't just another couple staying at their cabin. We traveled to Canon City and road the Royal Gorge Train - as well as walked the bridge (stunningly beautiful), took a tour of the Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (incredible!) and explored Colorado Spring area. The cabin is a nice central location. We hope to visit again!
There are so many nearby things to see and do; however, we loved spending time with family in this spectacular home the most. We definitely highly recommend & hope to return soon.
There truly is something special about this place - thanks for sharing it with us!
This house is absolutely stunning! The view is magical, the pictures do not do it justice. Watching the sun go down, star-gaxing from the hot-tub and the front driveway, and watching the sunrise from the front porch are some of the most peaceful experiences. The house was described perfectly, very clean and well stocked. We were able to cook fantastic meals in their gourmet kitchen, it had everything we could need! We spent one full day inside the house and it was so serene just watching the clouds from the living room with the cool breeze flowing through the house- best naps of my life!! The location is ideal for the feeling of seclusion in the middle of the mountains, there are wonderful hikes nearby and all you could need is just about 10 min away! Highly recommend this house, it has it all truly! Thank you Mark and Carrie for a much needed relaxing vacation- we LOVE your home!!

We were so blessed to celebrate our 10th anniversary at "The Refuge"! God has blessed Mark and Carrie with a beautiful home to share! The view was fabulous. It was so pretty to see the mountains change color as the day went on. We loved the hot tub, relaxing on the porch, playing games, and cooking up some great meals together! The area is a little off the beaten path, which was great with us! No tourists around and it was so quiet. We felt very safe. We really enjoyed Mueller State Park, it's a very nice park with some great trails. We enjoyed visiting Cripple Creek and Pikes Peak as well. It was a great week to refresh and refocus. Thank you, Mark and Carrie, for sharing your home with us! We would love to come back!!
