Creekside Cabin Retreat At The Base Of Pikes Peak

Bedrooms 2
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2BR / 1BA Sleeps 4 comfortably plus 2 rollaway beds Creekside With Mountain View

At an elevation of 7800 feet, Cascade-Chipita Park is found nestled at the base of Pikes Peak. Spend your days rafting, tubing, hiking, mountain climbing or biking and your evenings relaxing creekside dipping your aching feet in nature's version of an ice water bath. The shallow stream flows straight from the slopes of Pikes Peak and is perfect for kids, keeping them occupied for the day while parents recline in the mountain sunshine.

Fountain Creek Cottage has a rustic feel with modern amenities. A full washer and dryer makes quick work of those clothes dirtied in pursuit of the Colorado outdoor lifestyle. The kitchen is fully functional with a full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher and oven/stove top. Brew a pot of coffee in the provided coffeemaker and enjoy a hot cup on the back porch listening to the creek and watching the sun rise over the mountains. Tucked into a shallow valley among a handful of mountain cabins, Fountain Creek Cottage gives the impression of an isolated mountain retreat while within walking distance of The Pantry Restaurant and their homemade cinnamon raisin bread. After a full breakfast head out on foot to one of two hiking trails: Heizer Trail and Catamount Trail.

Summer is an exciting time to vacation along Ute Pass. Local mountain towns host festivals such as Territory Days, Donkey Derby Days and Green Mountain Falls Bronc Days. Step back in time and explore the rich history of the area with tours of Cave of the Winds, Manitou Springs, and gold rush boom town Cripple Creek.

Winter months are a perfect time to visit too! After a day of snowmobiling or snowshoeing in the surrounding mountains or ice skating on the nearby pond curl up in front of a cozy fire and read a good book or catch up on your favorite show on the flat screen TV (cable provided).

The cabin features two bedrooms, each containing a queen sized bed with new mattresses and new bedding. Since both are on the back of the dwelling, opening the windows at night brings in cool mountain breezes and the gentle sound of water splashing over rocks in the creek. You'll be pulling for the blanket before morning, even in summer.

About Tim Stearman

After 40 years in ministry my wife and I recently retired to Green Mountain Falls, Colorado. We sit on our deck and watch our five grandchildren frolic in the cool mountain stream I once played in as a child.

Tim Stearman purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Tim Stearman chose South Central

It is tough to find a more tranquil and beautiful place to vacation with your family. To us it has always been the perfect spot to take a break, put our feet up and reconnect with our family.


What makes this cabin unique

Five generations of my family have vacationed on Fountain Creek. I can't remember not loving it. The cool mountain breezes and the scent of pine call to mind cherished family memories.

We loved this cabin. It was very clean and all the amenities were provided. Just bring your clothes. It is located in a very quiet location with alot of trees. It was close to alot of attractions. Shopping (groceries and whatever else you need) was just a couple miles away. The owners were very nice and located just a few doors if you need anything. We would definitely stay here again and refer our family and friends.

Cozy cabin tucked away in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! The stream in the back was relaxing to listen to and sit on the porch and watch. Nice seating areas on front and back porch. Cabin was roomy and clean. It was nice to have your basic amenities: laundry soap, coffee, toiletries, dish soap, fully stocked kitchen, and plenty of towels and linens. The cabin was located very close to Pike's Peak area attractions. Great stay!

Great place to stay

We really enjoyed staying here. It was clean and within ten minutes of town either way you go. Owners are super nice folks who just live a few doors down. Very relaxing and easy place to stay for our family. Hopefully we will be back someday.

Beautiful setting with very clean cottage and everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a great place to unwind. During the daytime hours, our kids made boats or of sticks and floated them down the stream. In the evenings we had a fire and ate a home-cooked meal which was easy because everything we needed was in the kitchen. We also enjoyed the walking path across the road. Great distance from Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs!

Green Mountain Falls is approximately 10 miles up highway 24 from Colorado Springs.

Many of Colorado’s most desirable attractions are nearby. The Pike’s Peak highway is just over a mile from our cabin. The Cave of the Winds, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the North Pole (a favorite with our grandkids and FREE if you’re over 60), Garden of the Gods and of course shopping in Manitou and a visit to the Air Force Academy. Don’t miss Seven Falls or a drive up North Cheyenne Canyon to Helen Hunt Falls. Hiking trails abound and then, of course, there’s the option of just sitting on the patio and enjoying the sun while listening to the creek.
