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.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your cabin. The setting was peaceful and beautiful. The windows in the cabin were great. I would have given it a 5 but there was no shower as was stated in the advertisement. We would definitely stay there again!
Great cabin, stepped back into the 70's decor!
Overall great experience, the only things that could have been better the beds and having a shower, but we love it otherwise. Great area, very peaceful, beautiful, very clean and accommodating! Would do it again but we are buying a cabin just down the way from this one now that we have been here! I wish I knew the history, specially the portrait of the women, warm family feel about this cabin.
The Hermitage was a peaceful, beautiful home.
We really enjoyed our stay at The Hermitage. It was quiet, peaceful and cool. There were lots of deer that visited our yard. The cabin was very clean, bed was comfortable and we loved building a fire in the fireplace every morning. Plenty of wood in the yard. There was a large library of vcr tapes and DVDs to watch on the TV. However, no TV service, cell phone service or Internet. No shower or washer/dryer. we were 2 miles away from Lake Isabel, a beautiful lake with lots of trout.
