About Henry and Robin Reed
Hi, Henry and I (Robin) have lived in Colorado for 25 years and love the Rocky Mountains. It has been a wonderful place to raise our kids. We have explored many of the attractions here and there are things for all ages to enjoy! When we moved to Colorado, we could hardly wait until our children were old enough to explore with us. When their grandparents retired here, they began teaching them how to fish for trout at the Rampart Range Reservoir. Being able to catch their limit has never been an issue! We hope that you take the time to come to Colorado to relax, have fun and make some great memories!
Henry and Robin Reed purchased this House in 2013
Why Henry and Robin Reed chose Spring Valley
We spent a lot of time looking for a special place to get away and relax. When we found this property, we fell in love with the lakes, views and wildlife. Each time we have stayed here we have had deer come into the backyard early morning and evening. Having a place large enough for our immediate and extended family was important in case we wanted to get away to celebrate a special occasion. This mountain home's layout lends itself to privacy for more than one family. Be ready for a photo opportunity when driving to the house because elk herds frequent the area! Pack a picnic lunch and sit by the lake! There are several covered picnic benches and a bathroom by the lake as well. Drop a fishing line in the lake and catch a trout (we provide the poles and tackle)!
What makes this House unique
This is the only cabin in the area where we pre-purchase fishing passes for our guests, provide two different types of boats to enjoy (at no extra charge) and provide poles, bait and tackle. NO Colorado fishing license is required and the lakes are stocked twice a Summer with a variety of trout. Come try and catch a Golden Trout...it HAS been done!

We were so lucky to leave cloudy skies and see bright blue skies and sunshine. It really made everything so much more beautiful. The house was lovely, everything so clean, nicely decorated and nothing needed but clothes! There were all the convenience of home. We found the property was located to many attractions and the scenic byways.
A wonderful get away
The cabin was amazing. It was very spacious clean and cozy. It made us want to move to Divide, Colorado. Every morning there were a few deer that would come over and hang out for about 30 minutes. The location was so beautiful all the trees, lakes, and mountains made it seem like a dream. We would stay here again in a heart beat and probably for a lot longer next time.
Very nice place to stay. Our kids had a blast with the little snow left on the ground.
Beautiful property. The house is set up perfectly. The welcome binder was very helpful. Views were amazing!
An amazing mountain getaway with all the comforts of home
Our family spent a wonderful and relaxing weekend at the Wildernest. The cabin feels like a home - and there was nothing we needed that wasn't provided. We loved the comfortable furniture, roomy kitchen, the HOT TUB! Everything was thoughtfully stocked and laid out. The setting is so peaceful, and we appreciated being so close to Mueller State Park (gorgeous) and the good restaurants in Woodland Park. Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us! It was a true retreat and a much-needed break. Oh, and my kids loved the dollar bill game!
Perfect. We want to move there :))
After a long day travelling we were welcomed with wine and chocolates into the most beautiful cabin in the woods. All the furniture and decor were perfect for the area and it was very homely and relaxing. Our first morning we met Daphne ( as we called her) who was this huge deer by the back door who we near enough hand fed and was a regular visitor. It felt like we had our own Forrest as a garden and was even better looking at it from the hot tub after a long day visiting the million things to do in the area. We’d recommend the royal gorge railway and bridge if you’re looking for dramatic scenery. Cooking is easy with an awesome kitchen already stocked with spices etc that we normally have to buy at other places we stayed at. Drink lots of water and moisturise well as you tend to dry out at the altitude but you soon get used to it. Only thing we hated was leaving. Definitely definitely going back as soon as we can.
We've stayed here a couple of times now and we rarely repeat a cabin rental as we like to explore new ones. This cabin is very clean, very well stocked, and provides a super comfortable stay. The hot tub is perfect, the fire pit is a super nice touch. Stars galore from the hot tub!
We come in the winter and ice fish (bonus!). The fishing in winter is slow, but what could be better than ice fishing then hitting the hot tub?
I can't imagine what a blast this place is in the summer time. I look forward to checking that out sometime.
The lakes are amazing and there are several picnic benches. We have two boats you can enjoy too. One is a 14 foot row boat and the other one is a peddle boat. We provide poles, tackle and pre-purchase fishing passes. There is a view of Pikes Peak from the lake too! You will see lots of wildlife and if you like to ride ATV's the Pike National Forest is just 2.5 miles away! Come enjoy our place and catch a trout!! They stock it twice a Summer and there are some golden trout in the lakes!
