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!

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at the Bear Cub Lodge. It had all the comforts of home and the pictures do not do it justice. It was within 30 minutes of Colorado Springs and about 1.5 hrs from Breckinridge. Overall it was a great place and we have absolutely no complaints. We look forward to staying there again in the future.

Nifty Galifty!

  • 5 of 5

Bear Cub Lodge was a real treat to visit! We stayed a few nights and got to thoroughly enjoy the surrounding area, including getting our butts kicked climbing the Manitou Incline (highly recommended!). The beds were comfortable, the quality of the home was top notch, the views from the wraparound deck were incredible, the comfort in the house was great thanks to the radiant floor heating, the hot tub was awesome to use, and the kitchen was beautiful! During our stay there we didn't eat out at all, cooking all of our meals in the well-stocked kitchen and using the awesome outside grill as well.

I had to call Randy a few times during our stay and he was extremely responsive, courteous and accommodating. The wifi went out for a day and he was quick to call the internet service provider and try to resolve the situation (it was an outage in the area which was resolved about 24hrs later). We also had a couple questions about the hot tub and where would be best to go for a day of hiking, which he was able to help us with.

Overall we had an incredible stay and we highly recommend booking it! Thanks Randy...

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We planned our trip here for our honeymoon. The home was beautiful and very relaxing. The view from the deck was breath taking! It was quiet and peaceful. The owners were very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we made it and had everything we needed. The home was very clean and we'll kept up. This home by far exceeded our expectations and we would definitely stay again! Highly recommended!!
