About the property

3 Bedrooms * 2 Baths * Sleeps 9 * Wood Stove * Internet/WiFi * HDTV/Hulu,Netflix

Come and breathe in the mountain air! Enjoy a cup of tea and watch the wildlife while lounging in the Adirondack rocking chairs on the wrap around deck. Relax and nap in front of the picturesque windows while enjoying the warmth of the wood stove. Play a friendly game with a loved one at the game table, or get lost in a good book in the leather sofa. Feel like you are alone on top of the world while soaking in the hot tub while the kids climb the rock formations located on the property. There’s something for everyone!

This mountain home sits on 6 wooded acres just South of Hwy 24 with a fantastic view of Pikes Peak. Nestled in the Pines and Aspens with beautiful rock formations to explore on the property. Enjoy the privacy, but still have easy access to all local attractions. Close to world class fly fishing at Eleven Mile Canyon, Eleven Mile Reservoir, Spinney Mountain Reservoir and the Dream Stream. You can also enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and four wheeling in nearby Pike National Forest.

The interior features 2200 sq. ft. with vaulted ceilings and large floor to ceiling windows in the spacious Great Room. Custom slate flooring with radiant in floor heat along with the wood burning stove, will keep you toasty in the winter. Even the garage has radiant floor heating! An entertainment center with 50' HDTV, internet, Free WiFi, Free Netflix, Hulu, and a stereo to listen to music will allow you to relax in the Great Room. Downstairs bedroom has TV, Blu Ray DVD, Netflix, and Game Cube system for the kids.

The home was decorated by an interior designer with quality lodge furnishings and warm colors. With the open concept, it is cozy enough for 2, but roomy enough for the entire family. You’ll enjoy cooking meals in the large well equipped kitchen with gas Wolf stove top, double oven and Bosch dishwasher. Enjoy the views as your grilling on the wrap around deck or stargazing after a long day of outdoor activities in the 6 person Hot Tub.


Centrally located to all the activities in and close to Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, 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. Take the kids to the North Pole and Pikes Peak only 25 minutes away.

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

We keep the driveway plowed of snow in the winter, however we do recommend 4 wheel drive.

About Randy & Sara

Sara and I have been married 35 years and dreamed of a place in Colorado for our family to spend time together. We found this home and are now living our dream!!

Randy & Sara purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Randy & Sara chose South Central

We purchased this property in Colorado as a family gathering place and to share with friends in January 2014. First look at the view of Pikes Peak and we were sold!! We have stayed at many VRBO rentals and wanted to share our home with others to let them experience the pleasure of the VRBO family. Our home is your home, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

We really enjoyed our stay! The cabin was more impressive than we anticipated. Clean and modern!

  • 5 of 5

It's a great location! It's close to restaurants and any stores you would need as well as plenty of activities! Randy and Sarah do a great job with information on your stay and all the things you can do and see on your visit. McGinty's is a really cool place nearby in Divide for great food and a good atmosphere! The views were amazing and open layout of the cabin was wonderful! Randy was great with communication on anything we needed to know! We will definitely want to come back!

Awesome amenities - great value

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time in Randy and Sara's cabin. While we loved going out and about in Colorado's beautiful scenery, we were always excited to get back to the cabin to hang out in the hot tub, climb the rocks, and visit with the wildlife. We had one doe and fawn come right up the driveway one evening! Next time we're in Colorado, we'll definitely be staying here again.

Wonderful House with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We spent eight lovely nights at this spectacular home. The view were breathtaking, the stars twinkled and we all had wonderful days beginning with coffee on the wrap around deck, where we watched the hummingbirds, chipmunks, birds, and deer. We are a family of fishermen, and each day we spent fishing the various streams in the area. We also spent time at the Florissant National Monument. The house was wonderful and the hot tub was perfect for the end of our long adventurous days. Thank you for sharing your home.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I finally had the opportunity to get away for a vacation and I am so glad we chose to stay at bear cub lodge. The pictures do not do the property justice. The inside of the property is as beautiful as the outside views. It felt like we were home the entire time! We did not spend as much time in the house as we wanted to because we were out enjoying the local sights,but when we did we loved being there. We enjoyed sitting on the deck drinking our morning coffee watching the hummingbirds. And in the evening we enjoyed the hot tub and star gazing. I reccomend downloading a star gazing app so that you can view what constellations are above you. Randy and Sara, thank you again for sharing your beautiful home with us. We are already making plans to come back...this time with the family!

Loved the wrap around porch and the spectacular view of Pikes Peak.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time. House is beautiful with plenty of room. Nice wrap around deck with plenty of seats. Living room is cozy and plenty of room. Close enough for all kinds of attractions, and far enough away to have quiet time.
