About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Cirq Du Chalet Mountain Top Retreat a gorgeous private and separately owned vacation property adjoining and overlooking several trout lakes. Cirq Du Chalet offers stunning views and privacy for the discriminating guests.

Over 1400 square feet of well decorated, turn-key private vacation residence on 2.4 acres of mountain rock formations as well as native aspen and pine landscape. The Chalet sleeps 6-8 in a three bedroom and two bath 2 story retreat.

Many modern amenities include; fresh water well, septic, gas forced heat, electric, HDTV, Dish satellite, wireless internet, telephone, fireplace insert, newer appliances, new mattresses, bedding and linens and so much more. The home has been updated with new flooring, new furniture and a updated second bath. Everything is included in this turn-key vacation rental that you will need for any length of stay.

There is a fenced in back yard for the kids and dogs.

CIRQ DU CHALET is just far enough from the congestion of town but close enough for dinner and a show or shopping trip in any of the neighboring towns.

Nearby fishing, surrounding attractions, cities and adventures are just a short drive away making this location awesome for destination central. Immerse yourself and your guests in the best of mountain life. Hiking and biking trails/parks, white water rafting, world class downhill skiing, cross country skiing, 4 Wheeling, ATV trails, fast water trout fishing, tubing, horseback riding, hunting, casino gambling, visiting a gold mine, star gazing, or sitting on one of the numerous rock formations and taking in the spectacular views. You will find seating areas scattered around the property for intimate conversation or larger get togethers.

Centrally located to all the activities in and close to Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, Manitou Springs, Green Mountain Falls, Garden of the Gods, and the Cliff Dwellings, but don't forget about the Canon City area, where some of the best white water rafting happens. The train ride through the Royal Gorge is highly recommended. You can also head over Hosier pass and visit the Ski areas like Breckenridge - about 80 miles away. Stop in Guffey, Colorado to shop for that antique yard art you didn't know you were missing or just set up an easel or tripod and shoot some amazing photos of America's past. Tell Bill we said 'Hey'. Take the kids to the North Pole and Pikes Peak only 25 minutes away.

Cripple Creek: This cabin is approximately 30 minutes from the gold mining and casino town of Cripple Creek. Something for everyone to do up here. It is home to one of the largest active gold mines. Take a mining tour, a train ride or enjoy wonderful restaurants and entertainment etc.

Teller County claims our property is in the town of Divide. The USPS and Google maps claims we are in the town of Florissant. We are really on the border of both towns. To get all of their attention we have lovingly renamed this area Floride.

From Colorado Springs head west

up Ute pass hwy 24. Travel through the towns of Woodland Park and Divide. Turn left at Twin Rocks Rd. Pass the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. Take the next left at Trout Haven Rd. Continue up the mountain taking rights all the way up to Wahsatch Road.

We do not permit "wild" parties. The reserving guest must be 25 years or older, remain with the group the entire time and be financially responsible for any lost or damaged items. Guests will be asked to complete a Guest Reservation Agreement and return it with a copy of their driver's license.

Why Laura Cohen chose Florissant

This property took all of one minute to buy when we first visited. Location, Location, Location then View, View, View. Central to all things from the bigger city of Colorado Springs to peaceful solitude of the mountains.

What makes this chalet unique

Laura and Lee believe it is as important who you lease from as what you lease.

The Cabin is as nice as pictured. But the view and setting are even more spectacular in person.

Our hosts Laura and her husband go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. We had a late arrival and they put the lights on for us. Very well stocked kitchen and pantry. Very comfortable.

Peaceful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 loved this home! Very clean, very comfortable, very quiet. You can tell the owners really care about the property and your experience. We loved the handmade yard games. The view is unbeatable! Wi-Fi worked very well. The kitchen was well equipped with all the cooking utensils we needed, as well as sugar/spices/condiments/etc. (more than you typically find in a rental home). We visited Summer 2017. Neighborhood roads can be steep (I wonder how that affects ease of driving in winter snow). About 45 min - 1 hr to Colorado Springs attractions. We definitely recommend and we would love to stay again!

Darling cabin with all the necessities. Fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Colorado for forty years. We've stayed in numerous condos and cabins all over Colorado. This cabin had the most beautiful view we've ever experienced! Fantastic fire ring to have fires, lots of outdoor and indoor games. The kitchen was well equipped and the satellite dish was great to relax in front of before retiring for the night. So many things to do in the area. We will definitely be back!!

I loved the setting and area of this cozy cabin in the mountains of Florissant, CO

  • 5 of 5

I thought the Cirq Du Chalet cabin in Florissant, CO was a perfect place to stay while visiting Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Garden of the Gods, Pike's Peak/Canon City, Florissant Fossil Beds, and Wolf Wildlife Center. Lee and Laura have done an excellent job to provide a relaxing, enjoyable, comfortable, inviting, and memorable get away cabin. I am sure their other rentals are just as detailed. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the Colorado Springs area. Loved it!

Owner's Response: We are sorry that we did not get a chance to meet you while you were staying at the Chalet. We recently hosted our family reunion and had a great time visiting some of the same places that you did. We have never had guests that did not just love the comfort and amenities of the Chalet. We decorate and keep it clean as though we are staying there ourselves.

Truly a great cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We truly had a great time at your cabin. The location was perfectly located to everything we wanted to do Pikes Peak, seven falls, garden of the gods, royal gorge area and more. The cabin was beautiful both outside and inside. We especially enjoyed the views of the lake's from the cabin and the from the chairs out front. We sat out just about every night watching nature. Unfortunately we never saw any bears but plenty of other wildlife. We felt so seclude from everything even though there where several cabins around us. It was so quiet and peaceful and only about 15-20 miles from Woodland Park where there was a lot to do also.

The cabin is very clean through out and I can tell it has been well maintained. We found everything in good working order. Each room was as pictured in your listing. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything we needed to prepare several meals. Having a pet friendly cabin was a plus also not many cabins allow pets. They enjoyed the fenced in back area. Again thanks for opening up your cabin to us had a great time.

Owner's Response: Lee and I are so happy that you had a great time at our Chalet. We pride ourselves on having everything that you might need while on vacation. Some families choose not to cook. But, we want to make sure that you can make Thanksgiving/Christmas dinner without needing something that you did not bring from home. Our Chalet is your home away from home. Your pups were so cute. Please bring them back again. Laura & Lee
