Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms with sleeping loft 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Property available only June,July and August.

Our log home is 2,600 sq.ft. Situated on 35 acres approx. 8,200 ft in elevation. Surrounded by 1/2 million acres of National forest and BLM land. Views of Sangre deCristo and Collegiate mt ranges, along with the San Isabel Nationl Forest surround the home. Located 15 miles south of Canon City and 15 miles north of the 'quaint' town of Westcliffe, Colorado which is up against the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Part of the beauty indeed in getting there is the drive up from Canon City on a steep, narrow hard packed dirt road. Or you can take the longer but also pretty route thru Westcliffe from Canon City. It is a private gated community. Enjoy hiking, biking, and fishing brown trout in Grape Creek only 3 miles down jeep trail or walk 3 miles down deer trail from front door. Visit the Royal Gorge a 50 minute drive away. Or raft the Arkansas river out of Canon City. We as homeowners want you to have the best possible experience at our rental. Please understand that you will be in the 'wild' and may have a chance to see wildlife. However, please be aware that wildlife such as cougars, bears, coyotes, need to be respected as the wild creatures they are so please do not feed them. Keep a respectful distance away from them (that is what zoom lens are for!) Cougars can be curious and we have seen them near the house in the past. So please take time to read the blue guest notebook on wild creatures upon arriving and take the proper caution. This is a remote area yet close to Westcliffe and Canon City and we hope you enjoy the many things the area has to offer!

Absolutely amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you're wanting a place away from it all but still close enough to some pretty fun activities, you've found the place. Tucked up in the mountains at 8200 ft the drive through San Isabel National forest to get to the house is incredible. The views from the house are amazing in itself. It's a bit of a highlands area with stunning views of several mountains. There's jeep trails and hiking trails around along with lots of wildlife. We were on a guys trip with 6 of us and had plenty of room. The wrap around deck was perfect for hanging out at night with a couple beverages and telling stories. Mary, the owner, was also very quick about getting back with me on any questions. There's not one single bad thing I can say about the property.

Very uncomfortable stay and disappointing.

  • 2 of 5

It is a beautiful cabin but if you want to do other things it is a drive to go anywhere. Make sure you take plenty of food because nothing is close. Didn't like that it had no wi-fi and cell service didn't work. The main thing I didn't like and made the stay very uncomfortable was when we left for day trips someone entered the cabin without letting us know. There is no maid service so no one should have entered. So after that I had to pack up anything of value every time we left because I didn't know who was entering. Was not a peaceful or relaxing stay after that. But it is secluded and pretty but we won't be back.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Wow! the cabin is amazing to say the least. When everyone walked in for the first time, we were awestruck by its beauty. It's a beautiful cabin with all the amenities that one would need.

Saw plenty of wildlife, and really enjoyed being away from it all. Makes a perfect vacation spot, because you get the serenity of being in a cabin in a true wilderness mountain setting, with no close neighbors, and you are just 15 miles away from Canon City/Royal Gorge which has any and everything a tourist could want.

If you are looking for mountain seclusion this is the place

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for mountain seclusion this is The place. This is a very nice cabin. It is only 14 miles away from town but does take approximately 45 minutes on that route to get there. I will say that the cabin could use Wi-Fi. If you have AT&T phone service I would suggest getting a prepaid Verizon phone to at least have phone service up there. The one thing I was disappointed in had nothing to do with the cabin. We had to put a deposit for damage down and were told that it would be refunded to us. When we got the refund back there was a credit card fee taken out of the refund. We weren't told that there would be a credit card use fee. All in all it was a good experience.

Great Cabin and Views.

  • 5 of 5

All 6 of us adults(2 daughters and their spouses) enjoyed spending family time together. Cooking and going to Westcliffe for the Blue Grass Festival were the highlights. Roads were not bad at all, directions were perfect. Missed hiking to Grape Creek due to taking the Hellgate South road, should have read more of the Guest Book. The web pictures were demostrated in real life.
