Overview

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 Southeast

My mother and step-father have lived in Beulah for 20 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.

It was just as I had imagined.

  • 5 of 5

After a 10 hour drive, the Vinemesa cabin was a joy to see and it did not disappoint. It was clean and welcoming with lots of IKEA accessories. I didn't know it had a clawfoot tub. My kids never found a TV 😉 but it did have wifi. We saw a large buck in the evenings, grazing. We enjoyed listening to nature on the balcony. We opened the windows in the evenings and it kept the cabin cool the next day. We loved our stay and would love to come back. We received our refund deposit in about a week after checkout. All is well. Thank you.

A luxurious getaway in a quiet spot

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to find such nice accommodations less than a mile from our daughter's home in Beulah, Colorado. The cabin was spacious and clean, and there were many nice touches such as two gas fireplaces and a nice front porch and small rear deck with a grill.
