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 Florissant

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 View of Pikes Peak. A beautiful and cozy cabin with everything you could think you would ever need! We enjoyed the fire pit, deer and the beautiful snow! The pictures don't do the justice! LOVED IT!

Exceptional cabin

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many cabins over the years, but this property may be our favorite. The cabin itself was very much as nice as shown in the photos...quite beautiful. The view of Pikes Peak and surrounding area was fantastic. The general location had many fun things to do for day excursions. The location was remote enough for solitude, yet easy access to groceries, gas, etc. The owner's instructions were clear, easy to follow, and reasonable. They also responded quickly to any questions. I highly recommend a stay at this property.

Incredible, beautiful, a must

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon here and it was easily one of our most favorite parts of our trip. The house is INCREDIBLE. It's a perfect getaway, with everything you need right there: hot tub, fire pit, games, and incredible views. And, if you do get a little restless (which I can almost guarantee you won't) the house is just a short drive to some very cute towns where you can do some sight-seeing, beer-tasting, and local shopping. HIGHLY recommend.

Beautiful mountain retreat- Get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing mountain retreat perfect for reconnecting with our busy growing family! Kids 15, 14, 13 & 8. Our family of six had a long weekend at Bear Cub Lodge and had a fantastic time! Beautiful setting and well appointed house. Made use of the fire pit one evening and hottub the next. No need to bring roasting skewers for the marshmallows, they are already in the pantry! The stars are amazing, especially when viewed from the hottub which is just off the master bedroom. Made use of the ping pong table in the garage & the 8 year old loved climbing on rock formations out the back door! Our High schoolers had plenty of WiFi to finish off weekend homework, one of which choose to sit out at the table and chairs on the deck. So many deer! Cooked bacon and eggs one morning, the kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. I’m jealous of the gas range! The underfloor heating is so nice. Recommend the fusion restaurant in Woodland Park, the pub in Divine also good. Drive Phantom Canyon Road from Victor, it’s amazing! Make sure to stop at the German bakery in Victor for coffee and cookies before you make the drive. Great weekend, thanks again, we would love to come back. The Smith family, Louisville, CO
