Property description

*** The Best Kept Secret in Colorado! ***
Looking for a cozy get-a-way to relax and unwind?

Nestled in a Cul-De Sac just 8 minutes from town, among the pines and aspen, our lovely Blue Bell Cabin is a wonderful mountain destination surrounded by spectacular scenery, an area rich in history, and fun-filled activities for everyone.

Fall, winter, spring, or summer, our cabin provides privacy and comfort and a chance to connect with nature. You can enjoy great mountain views, a night of star-gazing, and the sun rising over Pikes Peak from the two private decks. Scenic drives are literally everywhere and hiking abounds at several area state parks and national forests. Explore all the charm and history of Cripple Creek by day and into the night. Visit the nearby Florissant Fossil Beds, Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Center, Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center, Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, and ride to the top of Pikes Peak. Enjoy fly-fishing in Gold Medal Waters, snow skiing on world class slopes, gambling in nearby casinos, and white water rafting and zip-lining at the impressive Royal Gorge.

This modern, fully furnished 2-bedroom, 1 bath chalet accommodates 6 adults comfortably with a Queen bed in both of the upstairs bedrooms and a NEW Queen sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress downstairs. The bright, sunny rooms are welcoming and allow nice passive solar heating. The kitchen is equipped with dishes, glasses, pots and pans, utensils, coffee maker, electric tea kettle, blender, linens, microwave, a full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, and oven with cook-top. The downstairs bathroom has a tiled tub/shower combination and is furnished with towels. The wood stove serves as a very efficient alternative to the radiant baseboard heating and the fireplace offers a romantic element.

Unwind after a day in the mountains with a barbecue on the back deck. Enjoy bird-watching and the deer as they graze through each day.

We are dog friendly and have FREE WiFi! While well-maintained state and county roads bring you to our cabin, an all-wheel/4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended during our rainy/snowy months.

Owner info

About the owner: We love nature and the outdoors. As avid photographers we have a zest for adventure and experiencing the joys that the world and life have to offer. As busy professionals, we have come to a stage in our lives where we want the simple life to pursue our dreams in a relaxed, down to earth fashion.

Why the Owner Chose Cripple Creek, CO, USA:
After exploring southern Colorado, we fell in love with the Cripple Creek area. During one of our vacations, we had the opportunity to stay in this delightful cabin. This cabin felt like home, unpretentious, comfortable, easy to access and just the right size. We were fortunate to make it our own. With easy access to the main road, we are able to pursue our love for exploring the Colorado Rockies on our Honda Goldwing motorcycle. With hiking out the back door and trail-heads so close, we are able to explore all the incredible scenery, incorporating our enthusiasm for photography. This little bit of heaven is tucked away, offering privacy without the feeling of remoteness. Cripple Creek is only a 7 minutes drive with casinos, shopping, restaurants, a grocery store, gas station, hardware store and Emergency Medical Services. Call us if you have any questions. 512-797-5800
