Overview

About the property

Come 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. Sirius radio provides all types of music for your listening pleasure. A wood-burning stove puts out a quiet, comfortable warmth. 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 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.

Perfect honeymoon Cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went to the cabin for our honeymoon and had a perfect time. We Hopped in the hot tub a couple times, cooked soup while we were there. Everything you need to cook is there, clean towels and blankets. Very quiet. It snowed the day before we got there so the roads weren’t bad at all. It was very beautiful, the lake was frozen. Even saw a family of wild turkey crossing the road. And had deer at the back patio multiple times. I recommend this cabin!

Owner's Response: Luke, I am very happy that your honeymoon at the cabin turned out to be all that you expected. The turkey are special to see. For being convenient to some smaller towns, the cabin is in a great location. Come visit us on your first anniversary and thank you for choosing the cabin. Steve

Just what Dr. ordered

  • 5 of 5

Great hidden gem in a town we've never been. Definitely going back! Hot tub while snowing and deer passing thru at same time was very cool. Very peaceful, did some exploring, but mainly board games and music for this busy family. Thanks for sharing your place with us, hope to be back this summer!

The place has everything you could need to enjoy yourself. The attention to detail inside and out are amazing. Such beautiful landscape and views surround the place. I will definitely be back. The absolute perfect place to get away. For those of you looking for that iconic warm cozy cabin feel, look no further.

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend at the cabin with my beau and sister. There was enough space for the three of us to hang out and enjoy our stay. The hot tub was a must when searching for a get away and the one here was spot on!! The cabin was well equipped to provide what we needed for 2 nights. Plus the Walmart wasn't too far for us to grab our groceries. Enjoyed everything the cabin had to offer - the great outdoors, cozy stay, and memories to last a lifetime!
