About Craig & Linda Hill

Semi-retired Home Builder married to an interior decorator for 36 years. Two sons, Kylan and Matthew. Found dream home in perfect setting, very well built and appointed by top notch log home builder. We will continue to add to lodge décor and upgrade interior and exterior with all genuine hand crafted creations until it is perfect. Decided to share our home with a limited number of people when we are not using.

Craig & Linda Hill purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Craig & Linda Hill chose South Central

Great location, quiet with a lot of privacy and spectacular views of Pikes Peak and entire front range, yet centrally located. Close to Cripple Creek grocery, hardware, fuel, and entertainment. There is a convenience store two miles away that has groceries, gas, diesel, propane, liquor, and even a payphone. Go the other direction and you are in Woodland Park with theatres, larger grocery stores, multiple restaurants and full size Walmart.

What makes this cabin unique

Your family can relax in complete privacy and enjoy the serenity and warmness of a genuine log home, or head in any direction for more activities than you can imagine.

Beautiful home. Beautiful area. Fantastic view of Pike's Peak.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Craig and Linda for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home! We couldn't have picked a better place to gather the family for our 40th anniversary celebration. We had rain for most of our stay, but got to enjoy a fantastic lightning show across the sky and mountain ranges one evening and the following evening were treated to the most intense rainbow that I think I have ever seen. Truly breathtaking! We were able to use your home as our "home base" for our activities in the area. The whole family participated in Arkansas river rafting one afternoon and jeep off-roading another day. The third day all were on their own and saw the Garden of the Gods, the Fossil Bed monument and toured Manitou Springs and Florence, Colorado (the antique capital of Colorado). For a summertime road trip, I would recommend Colorado Rd 86 for a truly breathtaking drive from Victor to Florence. There is so much to do in this area, there was no way that we could see everything that we had wanted to see. Beautiful, fun area! Your cabin sits on the side of the hill in a gorgeous area and has everything that one could want. Very comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen for making meals and very spacious. We were a party of 7 and were able to gather around the large table for our meals comfortably and noticed that the table could extend for even more place settings if needed. We were able to sit out on the deck one evening to enjoy the view of Pike's Peak, breathe that crisp mountain air and watch the wildlife in the area while warming our hands around a cup of coffee. It was so peaceful! We would love to come back!

A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Craig & Linda for making our 50th anniversary with our families such a memorable one. We couldn't have made a better choice to celebrate this way. We had an excellent time at their exquisite cabin with all the detailed decorating of the home. We call it a " piece of heaven" as it was so peaceful sitting on the deck and admiring all the beauty around it along with the wildlife in the area. The full moon from the deck of the master bedroom was beautiful. There were so many things to do and see in the area. The memories we made with our families will stay with us forever and we would love to come back in the near future. Thank you again, Craig & Linda for sharing your lovely home with us. You just have to experience the stay to enjoy it. Larry & Pat

Beautiful cabin with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Overall the experience at the mountain cabin was fantastic. If your looking for beautiful views, this is the cabin for you. We enjoyed the location of the property. The cabin is centrally located to many Colorado activities. We enjoyed driving up Pikes Peak, white water rafting on the Arkansas river, in addition to the many other activities we experienced. The cabin has everything you could ask for. Our favorite part of the day was sitting on the back deck drinking coffee and enjoying the wildlife around the cabin. The cabin was very spacious and luxurious, we definitely would stay here again! Thanks Craig and Linda for opening your home to us!!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What a truly wonderful home! And there are simply no words for the view - although "breathtaking" is close. The home is furnished beautifully and there was nothing (literally nothing) we needed that was not provided! We were immediately at home and we had a fabulous time. We want to especially thank the owners for being so gracious and helpful when it became clear we couldn't leave on our scheduled day! We woke up to news of a blizzard impacting northern Texas (our route back to Houston) and contacted Craig and Linda to see if there was any way to extend our trip by a day. They were lovely to deal with, and we were able to avoid a difficult and dangerous drive! We can't thank you enough. We're already planning our trip back! Thank you again for sharing your wonderful home and making our family holiday even more special.

Perfect vacation choice !!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Craig and Linda,

Thank you for sharing your fabulous home! The view and surrounding environment was incredible. Truly a picture of God's handiwork! Your home is purely a calm and serene place.

The kitchen was equipped with everything imaginable with a quality to be expected in such a lovely home. The little amenities included added such a personal touch. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious. The décor and theme of the various rooms added a "homey" feeling. Our bed was very comfortable. The cool night air felt wonderful with the window open.

The location gave us an opportunity to easily experience the surrounding towns and local culture. I have to agree that the pictures do not give the home or the breathtaking views credit.

Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home!! Would love to come again sometime!

Best Regards,

Bob and Sharron

Wonderful Cabin, great views, and an excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Eagles Nest is an amazing cabin and has everything that you could possibly want for a wonderful getaway. Modern and spacious accommodations, plenty of room for everyone and well stocked with virtually everything you need for your stay. The pictures really do not do justice, you definitely have to see it to appreciate. Very comfortable beds, huge table to seat everyone, nice porch/deck area with grill. Conveniently located for day trips to Colorado Springs, Canon City, Cripple Creek, etc. Many, many things to do in the area. We stayed 6 nights and didn't get a chance to see everything. We would definitely stay here again if we return to the area and the opportunity arises. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with our families!
