Overview

About the property

Come enjoy the changing of the leaves in September and October and relax in the 8 person hot tub overlooking Lake Magnuson in the Rocky Mountains. This cozy A-frame cabin is located in Florissant, Colorado, about an hour from Colorado Springs and two hours from Denver Airport (DIA). It is also just a short 14 miles from the historic mining and gambling town of Cripple Creek, Colorado. Relax in a peaceful setting, nestled in the aspens of a secluded, picturesque valley. Many mornings, wake up to the deer grazing outside the cabin. It has been the "HOMEAWAY" for many honeymoons, anniversaries, marriage proposals, and birthdays, etc.

Upstairs is a queen-sized bed , along with a futon in the sitting area. There are two decks outside the bedroom. One is a small covered sitting area with two chairs and a table, overlooking the lake. The second is an 8x10 deck in the sun, also with patio furniture and nice views.

Downstairs is a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom and living room with a sleeper sofa. TV Service on the 42" TV is provided by DIRECT TV and includes Cinemax . There is also Satellite WIFI for you Google buffs, but be aware that at peak times it may run a little slower, after all, these are the Rocky Mountains. Sirius radio provides all types of music for your listening pleasure. A wood-burning stove puts out a quiet, comfortable warmth. As you walk through the patio doors onto the deck, overlooking the lake, there is a barbecue grill, log bench and outdoor patio furniture and the lake is less than a minute walk from the cabin. Outside the kitchen, is a fourth deck, with additional patio seating and a small fire-pit.

"The Only Cabin On The Lake" is a great place to spend time alone, with your loved ones, or friends. You can enjoy the proximity to tourist attractions, gambling, restaurants, small towns, and yet still be secluded. Vehicle parking in the driveway is within 15' of the cabin door, for easy access. There is an outside electrical outlet to plug in your vehicle in the winter.

Although the cabin is on a lake, we highly recommend that for more gold medal fishing, Eleven Mile Resevoir and Canon is located in Lake George, about thirty minutes away.

Check-in is at 3PM and check-out is at 11Am.

"PET FRIENDLY" with a fenced-in area outside and a memory foam bed inside for your four-legged friends.

Make this your next HOMEAWAY.

Everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything you need and then some. My wife, dog, and I stayed at this property in October and we cannot wait to go back. The pictures do not do it justice! Everything was perfect from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The house was spotless and well kept. The outdoor space is massive and we loved running around outside. The hot tub was perfect on those chilly nights and the sunsets that can be seen from the area are breathtaking. We had some things we forgot to bring and they were all available at the cabin, they really thought of everything! Thank you for making our stay a great one.

Charming retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit and escaped the heat of the city. Our dog loved the walks around the area, and we got a kick out of seeing all the crawfish in the lake. The cabin is stocked well, there are lots of cooking spices and condiments which is unusual for a rental. The hot tub was a real treat too!

Owner's Response: It's funny, I have also seen a lot of crawfish in the lake. Sure glad all was good for you. Steve

Cozy & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

A very quite, private retreat where we sat out on the deck for hours just looking at the lake and occasional deer. The hot tub was great! Bring enough groceries & snacks to get you through since the closest grocery store is in Divide, about 20 minute drive. Thank you!
