About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

5580 Winnemucca is an octagonal loft elevated on a massive pole set deep into a forested mountain slope. Practically invisible from area streets, the home emerges from the woods as you drive up the 200-foot driveway, with level parking for up to four cars. Take the steps up the side of the hill to the front porch deck landing and enter the house. The living room features six floor-to-ceiling windows that look out into the tops of the trees and the mountains beyond. Guests can enjoy a leather sofa, a love seat that folds out to a twin bed, a dining table and four chairs, and rocking chairs. Off the living room is a fully equipped kitchen, with new appliances, which opens out onto the sunny south-facing deck. The bathroom provides a large shower and ample soft towels (no bathtub). The bedroom includes a queen pillow top mattress on a handmade Southwestern style bed with matching nightstands and reading lamps, a chest of drawers, glider rocker, closet and bookshelves. The bedroom also has a sleeping loft, accessible up a ladder, with a full-size bed. This loft includes a catwalk to the 'kid loft' where older youngsters can take their sleeping bags.


A laundry room is available on a lower level, as well as a detached room (extra $25/night) with a single bed and full-size sleeping loft.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Hi, I'm Don and I lived in this fabulous, unique little elevated house from 1994 until 2010, when I married Vicky and we moved six miles away to Manitou Springs. I raised my boys in this house, climbing trees, hiking Pikes Peak and using it as our base camp for amazing outdoor adventure. You'll see great photography on the walls of some of my cave exploration. I can provide plenty of information on area rock climbing, ice climbing, caving, and back-country skiing.

Why the Owner Chose Cascade-Chipita Park, CO, USA:
We can walk out the door and hike straight up Pikes Peak on the Rim the Peak Trail. We enjoy more than 300 sunny days a year in Colorado. It takes ten minutes to get to the restaurants and festivals of Manitou Springs, or we can head west into the glorious Rocky Mountains and all the outdoor activities found there. And Colorado Springs metropolitan area is 15 minutes down the highway to the east. Centrally located in America's vacation wonderland!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Clean fresh air, starry nights, secluded pines and aspens. Sleep like a log at 7500 feet.
