About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This is a little piece of heaven for our family. It is close to our home in Colorado Springs and a great getaway spot. We relax and just unplug here. It is also close to all the major Ski resorts, just over an hour to Breckenridge. Vail is just a little more than an hour and half away. Just 25 minutes from Woodland Park and all the amenities you would need. Colorado Springs is a quick 45-50 minute trip down the hill.

This is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle yet close to all the winter sports resorts at a fraction of the cost.

The views of the mountains and Colorado landscape make it feel as if you are away from everything, yet you are really able to access food, shopping sports and anything else you might want or need in less than an hour on all sides.

We are located just 3 miles from Lake George. The well known 11 Mile Reservoir is a short 20-25 minute drive.

This is an owner run and loved property.

There is a Master bedroom with a king size bed in the loft bedroom with a full bathroom, sweeping views and large closets.

The main floor has a wrap around deck for full views and fresh air. There is a bedroom with a queen size bed. There is another full bathroom on this level as well as the laundry room. The open concept of the kitchen, dining and living room all make this the hub of the home. The gas log fireplace adds a nice touch. There is satellite TV, and a stereo/DVD system as well.

On the lower level it is a walkout level with beautiful french doors and lots of light. There are two bedrooms and another full bathroom. One room has a queen bed, the other has a full size bed and a twin. There are also pull out couches in the living room down stairs. There are also some air mattresses available.

All the linens are provided and there are TVs, DVD players, VCR players on all three floors. There are some movies and games for children to enjoy as well.

The house is seated on 5 acres and is very private, plenty of room to roam and hike right outside the door. Located at the base of Crystal Peak, being in the National Forest there is plenty to keep you occupied. There is a small charcoal grill and a fire pit, but fire laws must be followed, so open fires must be okay by the Forest service depending on the Fire dangers and dryness.

There is no Wi-Fi, however if you can use your own smart phone as a "Hot Spot". AT&T is the best service that will pick up internet connection. However, most cell phone services work just fine up there. Depending on where you are on the roads and trails, the mountains can make lapses in cell phone service.

We make our home feel like yours!

About The Owner

We built this home 8 years ago as an investment, but ended up loving it and keeping it for our family. We have four children with busy schedules so it is a wonderful escape for us. We love to travel and have used VRBO many times so it made perfect sense to share our space on VRBO as well.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Perfect place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided we wanted a quick winter break and we found this lovely cabin near Lake George. While it was much larger than we needed for the two of us, it was close to great fishing in Eleven Mile Canyon and hiking as well. The home was impeccably clean and well stocked with everything you could need or want. The views are very nice and the home is warm and welcoming. Verizon cell service was not great, but that was ok for a few days away! We are hoping to come again soon.

Very nice cabin. Much larger and spacious than we thought. Close to 11 mile and 24.

  • 5 of 5

Large cabin with great amenities for a large family. Quiet with ample parking, bedrooms and local things. You could stay in or go out into the wilderness and the location was convenient.

Better than expected!

We stayed over the new year holiday. This home was beautiful! We stayed for 5 days and were greeted each day by varying numbers of mule deer. At times we counted up to 17! Would definitley stay again! Worth every bit of five stars.

Such an awesome getaway. This home is beautiful and was perfect for my extended family. Pictures don't do it justice. Great setting with amazing sunsets. So peaceful. Perfect place for some outdoors exploration. We got to see several critters including mule deer, rabbits, and a fox (or per my 4 year old, could have been a bear). Lots of kitchen supplies available, but only thing could have used was a mixer and glass dish for baking. Located a bit "off the beaten path" but close enough to major attractions.
