About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-8

This mountain home sits on 30 beautiful, wooded acres just South of Hwy 24. It sits high on a hill above the abandoned Colorado Midland Railroad from the 1800’s. Nestled in the pines, it overlooks a stream with several Beaver ponds and visiting wildlife. Feel complete privacy with no other houses in view yet easy access to all local attractions. Close to world class flyfishing at Eleven Mile Canyon, Eleven Mile Reservoir, Spinney Mountain Reservoir and the Dream Stream.

The interior features 1900 sq ft with vaulted ceilings and large picturesque floor to ceiling windows in the spacious living room. A stone accent gas fireplace with 50" plasma TV above, completes the space. The home is superior in quality, featuring warm colors and comfortable furnishings. With the open concept, it is cozy enough for 2, but roomy enough for the whole family. You’ll enjoy cooking your meals in the large, modern, well stocked kitchen or grilling on the deck. Enjoy the Views from the 3 tiered deck or stargaze after a long day of outdoor activities in the 6 person Hot Tub.

As long time pet owners we would love for you to be able to bring your 4 legged family member along. Please advise us of the number and breed of dog you would plan to bring as we do have some restrictions and house rules that allow us to keep our home in pawsitive shape.

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

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I stayed at the cabin for our trip and loved it! We hiked around the property, enjoyed the hot tub as it snowed and explored the region. If we book another trip to the area, we will definitely be booking this cabin again!

Everything in the home was above and beyond our expectations. Book this place now! It's a beautiful short drive into Colorado Springs. Location is perfect! We have an 18 month old and a 16 yr old. This home entertained both of our kids! There was a high chair and pack 'n play! They even had toys for our baby! The hot tub was clean and beautiful make sure to get in!

Wonderful mountain escape!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous mountain house, easy to get to but with no other houses in sight! The owners have thought of everything - kitchen with everything you need, plenty of towels for the hot tub and comfortable beds for relaxing after a great day of playing in the mountains. We certainly be back!

Wonderful home and experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed over an extended weekend recently and had a wonderful time. This home is not far off the highway and easy to get to while also being tucked against the mountain behind a private gate and drive, it was the perfect mixture of seclusion and easy access to nearby attractions. We didn't do much but relax over the weekend and we were pleasantly surprised at all the amenities and extras the owners offer like movies, games, toiletries, spices and cooking supplies, it was truly a home away from home experience. Kyle was great in communicating with us the process and promptly replied anytime we needed anything, he even left us a nice welcome message on the porch as we arrived (very nice touch). We brought our 18-month son and 10-year old German Shepherd, it was really nice to enjoy the time together as a family. We hiked, watched movies and the winter olympics, cooked great meals, relaxed in the hot tub, and enjoyed naps in this cozy home...just what we needed. We will definitely be coming back and hope to make this a regular tradition for our family as long as the owners will offer this great opportunity. Thank you so much!

The property and cabin is beautiful! Perfect for a family or couple get away.

  • 5 of 5

My new wife and I visited this cabin for our honeymoon, with plans to go skiing and do a number of things around the area. We ended up spending most of our time at the cabin instead and loved it. The large property around it is beautiful and is big enough for hiking, exploring, and seeing plenty of animals. It is close enough to the cities to go have dinner, see shows, sight see, and visit the casinos, but far enough to stay in and enjoy nature and peacefulness. We really enjoyed spending our mornings drinking coffee in the hot tub and planning our day. The hot tub is close enough to the cabin that you won't freeze in the snow getting in and out of it, which is something that I was concerned about when looking for our honeymoon cabin. The living area is very nice also, the large windows give a great view of the mountains for days that you just want to stay in and relax. The owners are great people also, they left us a note welcoming and congratulating us on our marriage along with a bottle of wine and made us feel very welcome upon our arrival. We are looking forward to taking our children to visit Colorado next time and will definitely be choosing this cabin again in the future.
