About the property

Two Story, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bath, on 4 Acres

The oohs and ahhs from the sunsets on the deck with mountain range vistas are surpassed only by the quiet and serenity of this mountain top retreat. The bonus of wild life spotting is a frequent occurrence every season of the year. The entertainment room includes foosball and a full-sized air hockey table.

There is a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, full sized refrigerator, and stove top. The great room features a stone fireplace. With two large sliding doors which open to the extra-large deck, the views from this room are unsurpassed. The dining area has a table which seats 6 with 4 stools for counter-seating. Warm weather dining option is on the deck with a umbrella table and chairs.

The Master bedroom on the entry level has a queen sized bed and features a jacuzzi tub and shower in the ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom on that level has a queen sized futon. There is also a powder room on that level.

Downstairs, there are two bedrooms, each with a double bed. The full bathroom downstairs has a tub with a shower. There is a laundry with washer and dryer included.

Central heat includes a humidifier built into the system. Additionally, all bedrooms have a free standing heater. All bedroom windows blinds as well as light blocking shades.

The downstairs entertainment room hosts the foosball table, an air hockey table, mini fridge for drinks, game table and dart board. There is a glider for exercising. In the den, the 26 inch TV has a DVD/CD player and a VHS player hooked up to it. TV reception is limited to one station. No internet set up at the cabin but cell phone reception is decent for internet through your mobile device.

The sites of interest in the area will keep you busy when out and about. You are only 20 minutes away from the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide, Co. Within 45 minutes or closer you will find Garden of the Gods, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Seven Falls, Manitou Springs and the Pikes Peak Cog Railroad, the North Pole Amusement Park, Cave of the Winds, Cripple Creek with its casinos, the Molly Kathleen Gold Mine, Cripple Creek Train, and more. It’s a short 15 minutes to the Florissant Fossil Beds National Park and Trails. Colorado Springs is 35 miles away where you will find the famous Cheyenne Mountain Park Zoo and many other interesting attractions. The Air Force Academy is approximately 38 miles from the cabin. Breckenridge and Denver are approximately 1 ½ hours away.

The quaint towns of Divide and Woodland Park are home to unique dining options, charming stores, as well as grocery stores, drug stores, a Walmart Supercenter and theatre. Several churches are located in this area as well.

About Judy or Linda

We fell in love with the property the minute we walked in the door. We only regret that we live so far away that we are unable to go there more often. It is our escape to serenity and quiet – away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives.

Judy or Linda purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Judy or Linda chose Florissant

We love the mountains and the sound of the wind rustling through the trees and watching the remarkable colors of the sunset. Regardless of the season, this retreat is beautiful; in snow, in the fall, in the summer or spring. The changing seasons also bring changes in the wildlife we are apt to see. The bird spotting brings us joy year around.

What makes this cabin unique

It’s quiet and isolation. The wooded 4 acres are secluded and give the feel of being far removed from city life.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house was perfect for our two families. Master bedroom with spa tub and shower on main floor and den with futon was perfect for us and our teenage son. Bedrooms on lower level were perfect for the other family with two younger kids. Lower level had game room which the kids could use while the adults were upstairs or outside on the deck. Altitude kept the nights cool and slept with windows open enjoying the sounds of nature. Occasionally saw mule deer in the morning. Views from the deck were amazing with mountains in the distance. A little hard to find initially. Wouldn't recommend arriving when its dark.

No outdoor grill due to fire hazard in the area, but didn't even miss it. Cooked in well-equipped kitchen and ate at McGinty's in Divide several times.

Lots of activities closeby. Mueller State Park near Divide has lots of great hiking trails. Took short trip to Buena Vista for rafting. Bonus of beautiful Collegiate Mountain Range with several 14ers and hiking trails along the river there. Used Acquired Tastes Rafting for our trip. Ate an outdoor restaurant in Buena Vista and had desert at a quaint ice cream parlor. Would definitely visit again

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved this cabin tucked away in the mountain top. Our favorite part was the beautiful view from the deck. Even prettier than pictures show! We enjoyed watching for the deer and were never let down as we saw them daily. The cabin is beautifully decorated and spacious. Everyone liked the game room as well. If you do make a trip to this area, be sure and check out 11-Mile Canyon. It's a great place to fish and if you love photography as our family does, then you won't be disappointed! Thanks for providing a lovely place to stay.

We had a great time staying at this beautiful cabin in CO. It is perfect if you want to take a step back from modern day life and enjoy family and relaxation. The view is amazing and it really is a great get-away. There is so much to offer and it felt like our own home at one point! Thank you guys for letting people come into your home with open arms! We loved it! -Christen Loyd

We had a good time here. The cabin is a short drive to the North Pole, pikes peak, and the royal gorge. Very clean and has many amenities.

It was ok.....have stayed in better

  • 3 of 5

View was amazing! One of the best that we have had amongst our other visits to the area. We were not all that impressed with the over all cleanliness of the cabin. There were cobwebs all over. A cup in the cupboard that had been put away dirty and had a sticky spot of pop inside the cupboard. Felt like I had to wash the dishes etc before I used them. Linens were still wet from the previous people's stay that morning so I was drying them before making the futon. And the comforters I don't believe had been washed as some were dirty so I started to wash them when we checked in. Found a dirty alcohol wipe on the floor in the kitchen. If going to advertise as 4 bedrooms and can fit X amount of people then please have beds that fit people. Full beds is not at all comfortable for 2 adults....and a futon I don't think is really considered a bed. Kids ended up sleeping on couch and the big lounge chair as they were a lot more comfortable. Day we were getting ready to leave we had a German Sheppard dog show up as we were in vehicles leaving. Not sure if friendly (but it barked and ran next to the vehicles at us) but we had little kids running around.....we did however have fun both kids and adults with the game room! Nice cabin just needs updated decor and cleaned better.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Enjoyed the wildlife. There was a doe around almost everyday with her two fawns. Also saw a bear on the road while on the road to the cabin.

This cabin is well stocked for small items you may have forgotten to bring.

Beautiful views from the deck. Overall, just a great place.

Great time with long time friends! Property has a great sunset!!! Peaceful and quiet! Property could use a few updates and at least two queen size beds, other than that we enjoyed ourselves immensely! Thank you!
