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 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

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.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 8. Three levels allowed for us to be together but also allowed some room to breathe. Would definently rent here again.

Great getaway for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six adults and four children (ages 9 months to 6 years) had a great stay at this property! The cabin is well furnished and spacious. You get the sense while you're there that the owners really enjoy allowing their home-away-from-home to be yours, too. The location is really ideal for anyone looking to escape the city. It was farther from the highway than we had anticipated, so we had to factor in a little extra time to make sure we could reach out daily destinations in time. All the more reason that this would make the perfect destination for some just looking to get away for a while. With that said, we'll definitely be considering this property again if we return to the Lake George area.

Great stay away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine enjoyed four nights in this lovely cabin. The cabin is clean, brightly lit, and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed grilling our suppers, playing board games (there are few board games at the cabin, but some are missing pieces, so we were glad we brought our favorites along), evening bonfires, and watching the birds and the deer. We usually camp, so staying here felt like a luxury vacation to us. We had everything we needed at the cabin, and the lady at the nearby Ponderosa Country Store was very gracious about taking our large bag of trash.

Spacious and secluded location. Family vacation of 11 individuals enjoyed the home.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the beautiful scenery and wildlife near the home. The home had plenty of room inside and out for everyone with a nice view on the large deck. The secluded location made it even better. Not far from Colorado Springs.
