About the Property

2 bedroom and 1 1/2 bathroom house with mountain views.

The cabin is high on the sunny side of the mountain in Cascade with really nice views. It is easily accessible from Highway 24 without the sight and noise of the highway. It is centrally located to many of the attractions in the area, including North Pole/Santa's Workshop, Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek.

The cabin has 2 bedrooms, the master bedroom has a queen size bed and a half bath. The other bedroom also has a queen size bed and if needed, a twin roll away bed. The full bath and the half bath have been remodeled. We supply the toilet paper, Kleenex, towels and washclothes.

The kitchen has also been completely remodeled including cabinets, counter tops and most appliances have been updated. The kitchen is fully equipped with coffee pot, toaster, plates, silverware, cups, glasses, utensils, mixing bowls, cookware, a blender and a hand mixer. We supply salt, pepper, Mrs. Dash, various other spices, plastic wrap, plastic baggies, paper towels and foil.

The living room has a fireplace insert, perfect for those chilly nights.

There is a front porch with a porch swing over looking a small yard with a 4 ft. semi-private wood fence and nice mountain views. There is a carport to park your car.

It is a 5 person maximum occupancy.

The rent is $150.00 per night and a 3 night minimum. We will only consider 2 nights to fill in spaces where available in peak season. If you rent it for 7 nights or more the rent is $125 per night. We have to charge a small county tax of 5.13% and a $300.00 damage/cleaning deposit that is refundable if the place is left in good, clean condition. We don't charge up front for a cleaning fee like most places do. If you clean it and leave it like you found it, no charge. If you don't clean it, a cleaning fee of $50.00 per hour will be deducted from your cleaning/damage deposit. We don't ask you to oil the paneling or wax the floor, just clean up what you messed up. We wash the sheets and towels so you don't have to.

*Sorry, rates are firm, water is very expensive in Cascade.*

We will consider ONE well behaved, house trained dog of any size by approval only. We have a very specific dog policy: If your dog is left alone in the cabin, they must be kenneled. They cannot be left alone outside in the small yard due to the risk of wildlife, etc. They are not permitted on the beds or furniture at anytime. Please let us know if you want to bring a dog and what kind it is when you inquire about renting the cabin.

*Cats are not accepted, no exceptions. We love them but too many people are allergic and this would require a major deep cleaning. It would be very time consuming and costly*

We are hands on owners that do all of our own cleaning and maintenance, sorry we don't have staff! We are hard working, responsible, honest and have integrity and are looking for renters who are also responsible, honest and have integrity (a sense of humor is a plus!) If you have these qualities please inquire about our cabin...if you do not please rent a motel!

It's just like home, the sheets might be little wrinkled only ours are clean! Come check it out!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Darell's dad, Henry, built this house in 1955 and together with his wife, Dona, they raised 3 boys here. There are lots of memories and stories here. Jeanette grew up in Chipita Park, just down the road. Darell went the first 3 years of school to the little old school house which is now the Cascade Library. We both went to Ute Pass Elementary School in Chipita Park and then went to Manitou Jr. High and high school. We now live in Colorado Springs.

Why the Owner Chose Cascade, Cascade-Chipita Park, CO, USA:
After Darell's parents passed away we wanted to buy it because it's such a special place. We decided to share it with other people and we hope everyone will enjoy it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Even though you are in a residential neighborhood you really feel like you've gotten away from it all!
