About Katherine Rice

We bought this property about 10 yrs ago and lived in Colorado Springs and we enjoyed the beauty of this area. We moved out to Rapid City South Dakota. We wanted others to enjoy this beautiful area so were renting it out with VRBO.

Katherine Rice purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Katherine Rice chose South Central

This is a beautiful property on the top of the mountain with views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains and Pikes Peak. Close to a lot of 14000 foot mountains if you like to hike those. Very peaceful with no electric poles and wires, it is an off grid cabin so it runs on solar and generator power.

Not far from Woodland Park with movie theaters and grocery stores and Cripple Creek with trains, gold mines and many attractions of the old west.

What makes this cabin unique

The stars are amazing with the Milky Way right there. It is remote enough so there is very little light pollution and it has 4 acre's for privacy and lots of good hiking.

Our family stayed in this fantastic home for five (5) nights. Everything was provided that we were promised - no hassles! We felt like this was our home and prayed before we left that the next family coming after us would have the same experiences. Only one suggestion: Some direction as to what land actually belongs to the property. We love to hike and didn't want to trespass on another's property. It was hard to tell for sure where one property ended and another began. THANK YOU for blessing our family with the sharing your home!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great time. We hike behind the cabin and we have about 4 acres. If a 'No "Tresspassing" sign is not posted, I wouldn't worry about going for a hike.

Good times in Colorado

  • 4 of 5

The place was very nice. The owner and jim were very helpful and on top of the issues. The place could use some updates like a different fridge. But overall we were very satisfied with our stay.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a good time, The refrigerator is a restored antique propane unit which does not use any electricity which is important for an off grid cabin. There is a modern refrigerator available for larger groups, but to conserve electricity we only plug it in when needed.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Had an excellent time at this cabin in the middle winter. Spacious, sleeps plenty comfortably, and has great amenities. Would recommend for anyone interested in hiking, camping, or simply want to escape for a bit year around.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay for our family of 8. Ages 19-60 and all could not say enough good things about our stay in this beautiful home. We were fortunate enough to be there during the meteor shower last month. What a joy to just sit on the deck with our six kids and marvel at the stars. Lots of opportunities for outdoor activities and sightseeing, so much so that we ran out of time. Already planning to return next year!

The wow factor was very disappointing. There are some problems. Not enough towels for a family, the ones that were there were old and very thin. Had to find them not even in bathrooms.Bed linen old and dingy. The basement was full of spiders and my family would not even sleep down there. The house needs a good cleaning !! First time my family ever rented a cabin and we were so dissatisfied.

Owner's Response: We have had nine 5 star reviews in a row. We did not hear from you during your stay, nor did you call our caretaker who could have addressed your concerns. You did ask for a partial refund, which may be the motive for your complaints. Our caretaker and I want everyone to have a wonderful stay at the cabin. All guests are invited to call right away if necessary, and we will do everything we can to ensure your vacation is all you hoped it would be.
