New Mountain Cabin

Experience mountain living with all the comforts of home in this modern 1700 square foot 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath log cabin situated on 2 acres ideal for families and adventurers of all ages. This home is perfect for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of city living by enjoying a relaxing vacation resting on the deck or enjoying one of the many recreational activities found in the area such as hiking, fishing, or visiting one of the many attractions. Enjoy an open floor plan (kitchen, dining and great room) and stunning mountain views of the Continental Divide and Sangre de Cristos from the deck. (pictures just can do these views justice) This home is located in Teller County, Southern Colorado about 2 hours south and west of Denver and a little over an hour west of the Colorado Springs airport.

If you enjoy the outdoors then you will love this property and the surrounding area. This delightful property at an elevation of about 9500 feet is located fifteen minutes south of the town of Woodland Park - the 'city above the clouds' and 15 minutes north of Cripple Creek - a historic mining and gambling town. The layout and furnishings are set up for a large group of family or friends and features a cozy family room with a propane stove for chilly nights, dining room to seat six and a well stocked kitchen complete with the cooking and serving utensils to prepare your favorite meal.

The master bedroom, 3/4 bath with double sinks, kitchen, dining and family room are on the main level with awesome deck and barbeque grill off living area with amazing views of the mountain range. The large wrap around deck provides a perfect perch to view incredible sunsets, read your favorite book, enjoy your favorite beverage, or just relax in the peace and quiet. There is also a barbeque perfect for cooking a steak or fresh fish if you had a lucky day fishing. From the deck you can see deer and other wildlife just exploring the beautiful surroundings or try to count the millions of stars at night.

The lower level has one additional bedroom with a queen bed and full bed, 1/2 bath and family recreation room complete with foosball, TV and a queen sleeper sofa and walk out patio. A fully equipped laundry area allows you the convenience of a long-term stay without taking away vacation time.

The house comes fully supplied with fresh linens, paper goods, washing and laundry supplies. Two televisions - one on each floor to accommodate multiple viewing desires with a collection of movies are available - or bring along your favorites.

Summer time in Southern Colorado offers many activities. Such activities nearby might include a trip to the Florissant Fossil Beds, The Dinosaur Museum, Mollie Kathleen Mine, Pikes Peak, Cave of the Winds, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and Garden of the Gods to name just a few. Come in the spring when the snow still falls, enjoy the dry heat of the summer with the cool nights, or come in the fall and see the splendor of the Aspens turning to gold.

Trips under 2 hours might include: Antiques in Florence, Golf in Canon City, Rafting & Fishing in the Arkansas River, the incredible Royal Gorge Park, Pueblo River Walk, Pueblo Zoo, Golf, Museums and Shopping.

This home is a perfect spot to create great memories!

About Sharon Sloan

Keith and I enjoy sitting on the deck and watching the sunset. We've been married 30 years and are high school sweethearts. We met in a rock band and still play in our church praise band together.

We hope you have a wonderful stay and please let us know if there is something we can provide to make it even better. And if you think that the squirrel night light on the deck is cute, tell me because Keith hates it. Ha!

Sharon Sloan purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Sharon Sloan chose Rainbow Valley

We purchased this cabin in 2013 and are excited to share it with others! As a kid my family would visit Colorado every summer and to be able to own a very tiny piece of Colorado is a dream come true. The previous owner was an artist who built it for his wife. Some of the quirky outdoor decorations were left by him. I love the bears on the pole!

Quirky Cabin with a Great View

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to the cabin in the evening and had no problems finding where everything we needed was placed. The upstairs was clean, however the downstairs had a slight musty odor and looked as though the floor had not been swept/mopped before we arrived-a bit disappointing when we pay a cleaning fee for our departure.

The space heater was needed at night in the lower level, but it heated the area up rather quickly. There is plenty of bedding and towels. The kitchen was well-stocked and we took advantage of this with a big breakfast. It was inconvenient to only be able to use one side of the sink for dishes- especially when there isn't a dishwasher and everything needed to be hand washed.

The views were gorgeous and you can see for miles and miles. Not having internet or cell service was not a problem and allowed us to focus on good old-fashioned conversation and entertainment. We were curious about the tiny mirrors everywhere and assumed it was to bring reflection and positivity into the house.

Overall, it was a homey, warm stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review on your stay at Sunset Serenity. We appreciate your comments and will use the cleaning comment as a teachable moment with our crew as we just recently hired a new one. We had scheduled the plumber for the end of September but to accommodate your booking, we had it rescheduled so you wouldn't be inconvenienced during your stay. Thanks again for being our guests.

Nice place! Beautiful area!

Would have given it a five star but was missing an iron and ironing board which was important to seven females which made up our group. Kitchen was very equipped, even had two crock pots. Overall we throughly enjoyed our stay!

Beautiful View & Peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Divide at Sunset Serenity, the views are amazing from sunrise to sunset. The home provided everything we needed. After a long day of driving or sightseeing, it was so nice to come back "home" and just relax on the porch or even from the couch in the living room, and take in the awesome view of the mountains. Would recommend this cabin and would definitely stay here again!!
