About the property

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

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!

Amazing Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin and location was absolutely amazing inside and out. So happy we had the opportunity to stay here. The view of Pikes Peak through the living room and on the deck is breathtaking. The cabin was furnished beautifully and the pics don't do it justice. We make an annual trip to this area every year and cannot wait to hopefully have the chance to stay in this cabin again. Thank you Randy and Sara for sharing your home, it made our trip that much better this year.

Awesome cabin, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has everything and more to make for a great family vacation. There is a TV with Netflix in every room, a closet full of board games, wonderful hot tub offering beautiful starlit skies, amazing kitchen with lots of basic food ingredients (spices and such) to get you started, awesome grill.... Gosh, what else can I say, this house is amazing! It’s an 18 minute drive to Woodland Park which is a good size town and has lots to offer. Only about 45 minutes to Colorado Springs, but it honestly feels shorter to make the drive. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful, quiet mountain home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and very well-appointed. We lacked for nothing! Everything worked perfectly - floor heating was nice during the cold days. The deck offered a stunning view of Pike's Peak while you drink your coffee from 2 coffee makers. Randy and Sara we very kind to give us a call when we arrived on the land line - there is no cell service here at all. But with great Wi-Fi & free Netflix & Sling, we didn't miss anything. How refreshing to not have my cell ring! The game closet is full of fun games and the property is beautiful to walk along in the snow.

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

Had stayed at the Bear Cub Cabin a couple of years ago with family. When planning another trip to the mountains/Springs area this was the first place I looked to see if it would be available because its that cool. Very nice place and a ton of fun. Arrival time was delayed for an hour because of cleaning personnel issue, but that was communicated by the owners and really was not a problem. Randy and Sara were great to work with and have an amazing property! Thanks again!

Better than I anticipated.

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing and the view of Pimes Peak was awesome. We had snow while we were there and had Mule Deer and a Red Fox come by to visit. The house in a great location for everything we went to do. My next trip to Divide I will be renting Bear Cub again.
