Property description

This cozy cabin is located high in the Rocky Mountains on Lake Magnuson in Florissant, Colorado, about an hour from Colorado Springs. It is 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. Wake up to the deer grazing outside the cabin. It has been the "HOMEAWAY" for many honeymoons, anniversaries, marriage proposals, and birthdays, etc.

The cabin is an A-frame with the bedroom upstairs. There is a queen-sized bed , along with a futon for watching television, reading, sitting or just sleeping. Relax while watching DIRECT TV and HBO. Outside the bedroom is a covered sitting area with two chairs and a table, looking out toward the lake.

Downstairs is a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom, and living room. TV Service on the 42" Smart TV is provided by DIRECT TV and includes HBO . There is also Satellite WIFI for you Google buffs, which, added to Smart TV, enables you to access Netflix, Hulu, etc Sirius radio provides all types of music for your listening pleasure. The wood-burning stove provides 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. The lake is a one minute walk from the cabin. Fishing is allowed but no boats or swimming.
Outside the kitchen, is a second deck, with additional seating and a small firepit

"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 gambling, restaurants, small towns, and still be secluded. During the winter, Teller County plows the roads well. You can park your vehicle within 15' of the cabin door, making it easy access.

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

"PET FRIENDLY"
Make this your next HOMEAWAY.
