About the Property
2 Bedroom Home with numerous additional convertible sleeping options, 2 1/2 bath
You will find beautiful views, modern amenities and lots of privacy in this clean, cozy, artistic home. The home is stocked with most of the basics you will need during your stay including basic condiments in the kitchen, coffee, tea, hot cocoa & popcorn as well as all sorts of toiletries you may have forgotten.
There are 2 sleeping areas plus 2 sofas and 2 cots available if needed. The loft bedroom has a queen bed, closet and a 1/2 bath that we refer to as the 'loft outhouse' due to it's unique decor of barn wood vanity and faux painting that makes it appear old. This sleeping area has a full mural of Colorado mountain scenery and full sky in the domed ceiling area fully viewable from this lofty abode.
The second sleeping area is in the downstairs lower walkout level. The western 'cowboy' bedroom has a lower double bed with a twin upper bunk, closet, and a desk in the corner with cowboy notes and envelopes to send a message to someone about your adventures. There is a guest book located on the desk and we welcome your comments. There is a full bath across from this bedroom with a claw foot 'slipper' tub with a hand held shower head for cleaning up after a hard day.
The rest of the lower level has a family room, leather sofa for watching TV w/ satellite(separate controls) and a cowboy bar complete with saddle barstools, and a Denver & Rio Grande 'G' scale train running at ceiling level around the entire room. The decor is rustic but comfortable and cozy.
The main level of this unique cabin has a TV room w/ plush leather reclining sofa, DISH satellite and surround sound, a stereo sound system with 6 disc player cd that can be piped through speakers installed in any and all rooms in the cabin and all outside deck and patio areas, a sitting area to enjoy the fire in the wood stove, a full kitchen with a solid granite sink to wash the lodge inspired dish wear (sorry no dishwasher), full size refrigerator and smooth top range. The main level also has a bath with a custom built (room for 2) lodge inspired shower (tiles w/ bears, moose and pine cones), a stained glass window to let in the light from the window and a handheld as well as a rainfall shower head for full relaxation.
This home has been painstakingly built over the last 10 years by our own hands and we are excited to share it. We have had family, friends, acquaintances and customers stay here over the past few years and here are some of the comments we have in our guest books:
' What a wonderful home in the mountains you have! My words are inadequate to explain the charm and warmth and especially the love and labor you have spent.
We thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!'
Gary & Sandy, September 2003
' My oh my, this is certainly a dream home in beautiful Colorado.'
C.J., July 2004
' Love, love, love it! So talented you are! No wonder your cabin is featured in all the magazines. Better than Hearst Castle.'
Nancy, July 2004
' Love your 'cabin'. It was hard to take everything in and I'm sure we missed some corner. Very unique and well done!'
Jane & Jerry, August 2004
' Thank you for opening your 'cabin' to us. It is AWESOME! We hope it will be your 'happy place' for years to come.'
Larry & Barb, August 2004
' If your cabin was in the Parade of Homes it would be winner #1! My first impression was to jump on the back of a horse and ride off into the sunset. Yee Haw! (Think it was the saddles at the bar).
Thanks for inviting us.
Jean & Joe, September 2004
' What a wonderful experience to see your home. Detail - Detail - Detail! All unique and one-of-a-kind. What a treat to tour such a treasure.'
Renee & Darrell, July 2006
' We're so grateful for the opportunity you gave us to have a family vacation! We all had a blast! The cabin is B*E*A*U*T*I*F*U*L! The attention to detail is amazing! '
The Bunch Family, July 2007
' Thank you so much for inviting me to your amazing cabin! I had such a wonderful weekend! Thank you for taking such good care of us. Your cabin is beautiful - I wish I didn't have to go home! '
Tripte, May 2010
' Thank you for such a wonderful stay here in your fabulously decorated cabin. As one of the first guests in the 'Cowboy Room' I strongly recommend taking a long, hot bath to soothe your muscles after a day on the slopes. Once again I had a great time out here and look forward to coming out many more times! '
Cheryl, January 2011

About the owner: Norm & Pat Miller live in Colorado Springs, CO. Pat is a marketing consultant for small & medium size businesses in Southern Colorado. She also manages their vacation rental. Norm suffered kidney failure and received a donated kidney from a friend in 2013. He is now back to work full time. We enjoy building, remodeling our many projects over the years, and creating unique detailed hand made items of wood. We also enjoy traveling with our travel trailer.
Why the Owner Chose Cañon City, CO, USA:
We chose our property of 35 acres in this beautiful area of Colorado due to it's easy commute time from Colorado Springs where we live and work. We fell in love with the scenery, tranquility and security of the gated ranch area of Delilah Peak. We have spent the last 11 years building our dream cabin in the mountains on the vacant 35 acre lot and love the accessibility, privacy and peaceful area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love that the ranch is gated and only accessible to owners and invited guests, has access to over 10,000 acres of BLM land for hiking, ATV riding and hunting, and has well maintained roads for easy access year round. It is 35 minutes to Canon City where you have access to shopping & restaurants. It is also a short drive to Cripple Creek, Salida and about an hour from Colorado Springs.
