Overview

About the property

Upper Lake House, along with the companion Aspen Lake House, offer spectacular family entertainment. The homes are approximately 150 yards apart, so they offer the perfect setting for housing different family groups. Together, both houses have a total of 9 bedrooms and can house up to 18 people with an additional chair bed in the lower master of Upper Lake House, perfect for a youth or small adult. Both properties have fully stocked kitchens and laundry facilities. The properties can be rented together or separately.

For the information on Aspen Lake House, go to VRBO 372446. There is a special discount for renting both properties for six nights at the same time. Please contact the property manager for details.

Upper Lake House is a beautiful country cabin located on approximately 80 peaceful acres surrounded by aspen trees. The views from the front deck are spectacular, offering vistas of Pikes Peak, Skagway Reservoir and the surrounding mountains. Skagway Reservoir, a lake that is great for trout fishing, canoeing and boating, is within walking distance from the house. Enjoy the large spacious deck or, if you prefer, take in a variety of activities in the area from scenic byways like Phantom Canyon Road (old tram railroad for gold miners), Shelf Road (old stagecoach route), Gold Camp Road, High Park Road, the ride along the Platte River to area hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, white water rafting, gold mine tours, golf, Cripple Creek and Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, Mueller State Park, Pikes Peak and Pikes Peak Cog Railroad, Cave of the Winds and much more. There is convenient shopping at Woodland Park, Colorado which is only 30 miles away. If you prefer exploring, you can discover the quaint nearby gold mining towns of Victor (15 minutes away) and Cripple Creek (25 minutes away).

Upper Lake House has been totally renovated with tile, wood floors and granite countertops throughout. The house contains 4 bedrooms, including 2 master bedrooms. For an additional person, there is also a comfortable folding bed in the downstairs master bedroom. Also for multi-family convenience, the house offers 3 bathrooms, a large combo kitchen/living area, a downstairs den with satellite TV and DVD player, and laundry room with a washer and dryer. There is local and long distance phone service available as well as internet. The house will comfortably sleep up to 9 people. Many windows throughout the house offer great views of the mountains and outdoors. At 9,400’ elevation, the weather during the summer is wonderfully temperate.

The house overlooks beautiful Skagway Reservoir and is conveniently located 12 miles from Cripple Creek, and approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes from western Colorado Springs. There is a 6 mile, county maintained gravel road from Victor, CO (CR 86 and a quick left onto CR 861) which takes you to Skagway Reservoir. Prior to the reservoir parking lot you take a dirt road to your right and proceed up steep hill to the property. The road up to the lake house is a gravel/rock road. A 4WD vehicle is required for snowy seasons.

Why Debbie Gaudin chose South Central

We bought this house and property due to its proximity to our main house and because of the stunning views of the mountains and the lake. There is, also, a magnificent aspen forest in the back yard. We did a major renovation on the house with new granite countertops, custom cabinets, tile and wood floors, windows and doors. We built a large deck to capture the views. We thoroughly enjoy this property and believe our guests will also.

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 LOVED this rental. Very clean inside, well stocked with kitchen supplies, towels and bedding. Breathtaking views and quiet seclusion. The photos don't do the location justice! The un-paved road to the property added to our quest for adventure. We hope to return soon! The owner of the property is very responsive and open to communication. We really appreciate that.

Owner's Response: We appreciate this fine review. Somehow pictures cannot capture the beauty in these mountains, along with the peacefulness and the serenity of the lake.

Amazing Views! Comfy Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful. Fully functional kitchen. Amazing views. It was a drive to get any major towns. The altitude was something to adjust to. Very pleased with our stay. No air conditioning but was nice and cool even in July!

Owner's Response: If you like remote, you will enjoy this peaceful property. The altitude is 9,300', so take it easy, drink a lot of water, then explore the great outdoors!

Great vacation for fishing and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location. Close to Cripple Creek.

We would have like to have a television located upstairs. Also the directions for using the downstairs satellite TV were not detailed enough for us to operate the TV.
