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, fishing is not allowed for guests. We highly recommend that for 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.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Little on the rainy side, so not much hot tub. But the house had everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the deer that would practically come walking in the house if you left the door open! The bed was a little on the uncomfortable side, but we would come back again! We could not get the WiFi to work, but we did not call Steve, cause really should you be using electronic devices anyway? Skip the technology and enjoy the scenery.

Owner's Response: Wow, someone who is not tied to their electronic devices. Just for future reference, the PW is on the router. I'm happy that you enjoyed yourself. It's difficult to pick a mattress which suits everyone. I would like it very much if you would visit again. Steve

Relaxing with great views

  • 5 of 5

Very we'll kept cabin.clean and well organized has .little pluses such as dog beds, bowl and nice area out front for the dogs to spend a few hours while you do some local attractions. We saw a family of Dear daily. I would like to say the only thing we personally would have liked was a fan upstairs. Unfortunately I had altitude sickness due to the elevation so take something with you just in case. You won't want to leave my wife cried on the way out...thanks for the great cabin Steve well done!
