Overview

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 7 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

Why The Owner chose South Central

The ease of the drive from our home makes this the perfect place to get out of town and unwind.

What makes this house unique

Everything you would need is in this home already, just bring yourself ready to relax.

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay. The house was adequate in size for us and has a lovely view.

The kitchen needs a bit of help. The pots and pans are old with loose or missing handles. We found several places that should have been swept up before our visit. There were two pans in the oven when we opened it that were dirty with bacon grease. Disappointing in the kitchen but everything else was very nice.

We had a wonderful time - saw fox & deer - all we brought was food. 1 bag of trash in kitchen was all we had. Slept in the master on 3rd floor & watched movies & slept (retired & tired lol) I cant wait to visit in the summer, because we want to fish & hike!!! Had everything we needed from dishes to toilet paper. We had booze if we wanted & wine (we dont drink). Saw BIG deer with antlers right in front of the house. Just cant wait til summer & can stay longer than 3 days!!! Went to Cripple Creek on Saturday & got back at 10:30 & snow on the ground but NO problem. We truly had a divine time!!!

Lake George

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed every minute. My wife had never seen the mountains before and enjoyed the view from the deck and the upstairs bed room. We saw mule deer and many different types of birds. The house was so enjoyable I only tourist trip was to the general store in Lake George. We would recommend this house to anyone going to Colorado. Lisa was very quick to respond to any questions we had. John and Evelyn
