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 Florissant

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.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

House was great. We had 11 adults in town for a friend's wedding and loved the house. It was clean, spacious and had everything we needed for a fun trip. The house is very remote so if you're looking for easy convenience to town it's not for you. Beautiful location and would recommend to others.

Great Secluded Colorado Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had a small family reunion (6 of us) and we all enjoyed the peacefulness and beauty of the property. The wrap-around deck was awesome and allowed us to view the countryside from all directions. The hiking was also great! The house was plenty big and the beds were comfortable. Only critique would be to get some new pots, pans, sharp knives, ping pong paddles and pool cues. Other than that, our stay was top notch!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Rice cabin. It met our needs well. We were very comfortable and found what we needed stocked there. The location was central to many activities we enjoyed. The home was clean and had plenty of bedding, towels, etc. Thanks to the Rice family for sharing their home with us!

Remote and quiet

  • 4 of 5

My family really loved the house. The area is perfect. Cool mountain air with some hiking/ exploring available. The house fit our group of 11 nicely with everyone having their own bed.

(The loft is very bright in the morning). It is a bit off the beaten path, but that is a good thing.

Overall, It isn't for the 5 star hotel types, but it suited us very well. The solar/generator wasn't much of an issue. Due to a cloudy day and our kids overuse of laptops/phones, the generator had to do some extra work. We could hear it at night, but it wasn't loud enough to cause problems sleeping. The water pressure is low, so if someone is taking a shower it will be noticed if anyone runs the kitchen sink water/ dishwasher / clothes washer. Thanks to the owners for building a nice house in a great location and allowing us to use it. -Bronson family
