About the property

2 BR/2 Bath Private Modern Cabin with Exquisite Mountain Views, Beulah

'Vinemesa Cabin' is located in the small artists' village of Beulah, Colorado, in the foothills below the picturesque Wet Mountains. Local legend claims that this secluded valley became the favored hideout of a horse thief, Juan Mace, attributing the nick-name 'Mace's Hole'. Located 25 miles southwest of Pueblo, this area is at an elevation of 6,800 feet and on the outskirts of the San Isabel National Forest, an ideal place for picnicking, fishing and hiking. The area is also home to Lake San Isabel, which is open year round and is stocked by the Colorado State Department of Wildlife.

Beulah is conveniently located about an hour from the Colorado Springs Airport and just 20 minutes from Pueblo (groceries etc.). A beautiful drive 'over the mountains' takes you to the Royal Gorge and Canon City, Westcliffe, & LaVeta for a trip on the Royal Gorge train, white-water river rafting, kayaking, canoeing. A trip up nearby Greenhorn Mountain, at 12,500 ft., offers a splendid view of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Or tour Bishop's Castle. This huge stone and iron castle, complete with a smoking dragon, is an intriguing side trip to the small town of nearby Rye.

Beulah 'town' offers a general store with gas station, an antique shop, a post office and 2 restaurants. Our cabin is within walking distance to the heart of the village, yet situated on a secluded ponderosa pine mountain side with a small stream. Glorious mountain views, black bears, families of deer and various birdlife can be seen from the numerous windows and dining deck. Head out the front door for hiking up the canyon, flag mountain or a short cut to the San Isabelle National Forest.

Our cabin is newly constructed with all modern comforts including two state of the art gas fireplaces, internet and wifi, ipad/ipod docks for music, modern kitchen with large island for baking or family projects, seating for 6, and every kitchen amenity needed to create from simple to elaborate meals.

The layout consists of an open living area with sleeper sofa and fireplace with views of the ponderosas and surrounding mountain range, large kitchen/dining area with fireplace and access to outdoor dining again, overlooking the pines, one guest bathroom on main level, one master bedroom with queen bed and beautiful views of the mountains, one twin room with two twin beds, 1 full bath with freestanding bathtub and separate shower on the second floor.

All bed linens, bath towels and kitchen towels are included in your rental.

About Abigail Leese

Originally from the U.S., I now live with my family in the French West Indies. I'm a photographer and my companion, an architect, designed our cabin. This will be our third renovation build together. You can see our other rental property in Amboise, France named 'La Petite Vigne' on VRBO.

Abigail Leese purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Abigail Leese chose Beulah

My mother and step-father have lived in Beulah for 25 years. While visiting, my companion and I fell in love with the town and the surroundings. As faith had it, there was an excellent opportunity to buy a beautiful piece of land adjacent to that of my mother. We began construction in the summer of 2014.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin was professionally designed by my companion, Francois Pecard ( It has a unique European design a bit uncommon for the area, but we feel the verticality and dark color fit beautifully with the ponderosas! The inside is minimalist with white and beetle kill pine (local wood killed by beetles). Modern and cozy, comfortable and simple. The home is secluded to neighbors yet located in the heart of town so you can take nice walks to the general store, post office or restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You're mom is wonderful! We are completely in love with your home and couldn't be happier. We couldn't have picked a better place.

Nice property close to the small Village of Beulah but a very peaceful retreat. Recommend the property; the owner was pleasant and efficient in all transactions.

Splendid house in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as pleasant as it could be: great design, beautifully furnished, good art, complete kitchen, very comfortable. The information about local ativities was excellent, as were the instructions on the house. We hiked and explored the antiques town of Florence. Do bring food from elsewhere.

Truly an awesome place to spend a very relaxing extended weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place based on past reviews and pictures we saw online. And I have to admit the place did not disappoint! Beautiful remote setting nestled in evergreen pine woods with the peace and tranquility one expects to get when out of the city.

Star gazing at night was one of our favorite activities. The cabin was clean, airy, and very welcoming. I could go on and on... but you've just gotta go see it for yourself.

We definitely will be going back to visit again.

This rental was wonderful. It gives you a secluded feel although you have neighbors close by.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is equipped with everything you may need. If privacy is what you are looking for...this is the place for you. My husband & I had such a wonderful time. I have to mention that the view from the claw foot tub is amazing!!! We can’t wait to go back to the area!!

Charming cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved everything about the cabin. Opening the windows in the evenings, and sitting out on the porch made my heart happy. The town is quiet and has trails to explore. We would definitely love to come back and visit! JS

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, welcoming, and very comfortable. We enjoyed the peaceful and relaxing surroundings, especially seeing wildlife, including, butterflies, numerous bird types, deer, and skunk. At night there were so many stars visible and we even were able to see the Milky Way right over the house. We really enjoyed our stay, it just wasn't long enough. Hope to return some day.
