This property is located in the San Isabel National Forest minutes away from the San Isabel Lake for great fishing. The cabin is nestled in the Aspen Acres community surruonded by privately-owned lots and cabins, away from the crowds with a huge inventory of movies and or for the nature lovers animal watching and hiking. There are two ponds and a creek located on the property and the cabin sets on a one and one-half acre lot. Deer and family of geese to wild turkeys visit quite often. The side entrance to the cabin has a nice-size deck to bathe in the sun, animal watch, or enjoy the brilliance of the stars. If you like to wonder a bit, about six miles away is Bishops Castle, a castle built by hand - a definite sight to see. Restaurants and shopping are available within one an one-half miles from the cabin or you can head down the mountain into Rye, Colorado City and or Pueblo. A great place to go for relaxation and clean, family fun.

All the pros definitely out-weighed the cons
Pros - nice private, secluded spot with quite a bit of wildlife around, even in the heat of summer. Fully furnished kitchen was old but fully stocked. New shower is really nice. we loved the "retro" feel to everything inside - decor, furniture, the VCR movie collection. The deck was really fun and relaxing for me, while my boys were out exploring the area. So many animals around the area - fishing at Isabel was decent, but only stocker trout...still super fun. We golfed at Hollydot and saw deer, fox, antelope, elk, and a bear on our trip to the golfcourse and back. The TV is a classic Zenith with a GREAT picture still. I would think its a collector's item now and you should hang on to that TV. :-)
Cons - we had a bit of trouble with the key at first, and a small area in one bedroom had a damp floor - I think there is a small leak in the wall maybe? beds could use an upgrade, but not that bad really.
Its definitely an older cabin without a lot of upgrades, but that makes it fun to stay in a place like this and it was reasonably priced for the size of cabin for sure.
Thanks for the great stay Reginald!
very nice and relaxing will be back
This cabin was adorable and great to stay in. The nature was great and my daughters enjoyed roasting their Marshmallows and playing in the trees. The only problem, and not so much problem but personal preference, was that the beds were uncomfortable. We all ended up sleeping on the couch due to the bed being very hard. Overall enjoyed our stay though.
Hello, Jami and thank you for your review. Please tell me which bed you found to be uncomfortable so that I can address.
Thank you for choosing "The Hermitage"
Great clean and cozy cabin
We had a great time staying here! No complaints and we highly recommend it.
This property is a bit dated, but the overall feel is great! It's very charming! Great location.
I rented this property for myself and 3 small children. The property is great. Beautiful, quiet neighborhood, set in the woods, a couple of miles from Lake Isabel. We had a couple of issues which were promptly addressed by the property manager. And the owner, Reginald, responded very quickly to our request. I would definitely recommend this property and stay again. Good times
Thank you for your kind review. You mentioned that it's a bit dated and it's true, the cabin was built around 1962 by Harlan Clouse of Pueblo CO. He was a shop teacher and built the entire cabin himself by hand. You will note the wrought iron chandelier and decorative window protection from the winter snow, were all hand forged by him. In addition, the kitchen cabinets were made by him as well as the hardware. Those of you who visit the cabin and venture down to tour Bishop's castle will note the iron work at Bishop's castle is similar as Mr. Bishop was one of Harlan Clouse's students. Even though it may seem dated to some I have retained the original heritage of the cabin and try to respect it's history.
Thank you Reginald.
Great property, very remote
The cabin is located in a gorgeous part of Colorado. I have never seen so many deer in such a short timeline. Lake Isabel is around 2 miles away and has great fishing, we just used worms and caught a good number of rainbows. It is one of the more remote properties I have stayed at, no cable, no internet and no cell phone service within 15 miles of the property but the cabin has a land line so you can be contacted on that. Also, the cabin has a bath but no shower and no laundry capabilities, that could be an issue for some but since I knew going in, I didn't mind. Don't show up to the property expecting you can just "run" to town to pick up a few things, it is 30min drive both ways at a minimum (depending on weather), so those eggs you need are going to cost you an hour and a half of time. If my family and I weren't moving we would absolutely stay here again.
