Craig & Linda Hill purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Craig & Linda Hill chose Florissant

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.

Great owners, beautiful home and amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Eagles Nest for a three day stay and absolutely did not want to leave. The home and property were exactly like were pictured only much better. The pictures really don't do it justice. The home is very accessible but also very private. The Hill's went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and their directions and local recommendations were outstanding. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. My only complaint was that we had to leave. We hope to get back for another stay as soon as we can and look forward to talking to Craig again if only to say hi. After a couple of phone calls I felt like I knew him all my life. They really make you feel like their home is your home and we couldn't have asked for a better all around experience. Thank you both so much and look forward to doing it again. Wishing you the best, Jeff, Cindy and Christy

Relaxing and Amazing

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this vacation home, the scenery was awesome from every angle, the wildlife was friendly and abundant. The cabin was clean and comfortable in every area! 4days was not enough in this secluded mountain top escape from the world. Thank you for the stay we will definitely return and recommend!

First Class in all respects

  • 5 of 5

Five of us go once a year to different areas, rent a home for a week and relax. The week this year at Cripple Creek was the best in many respects. The views from the wrap-around decks are breath taking. The amenities were first class - from furnishings, appliances, beds, kitchen utensils, you name it. Wild life as plentiful including daily visits from ground squirrels and deer. We even were treated to a visit from a doe and her two fawns. Paraded right by the deck. Spectacular. The weather was accommodating. Even though it rained late in the afternoon on several occasions it didn't dampen our experience. Watching the cloud banks build, move over the mountains and across the valleys while sitting on the porch... excellent! We had a wonderful time and recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing get away.

Owner's Response: Thanks for such a wonderful review. We appreciate hearing from our guests telling us what a great time they had at our cabin. We as well, love sitting on the deck and watching the weather move in. So amazing!! Thanks for the cute film of our twin fawns and the drone aerial of our home. House was left in great shape. Come back and see us again. Thanks, Craig & Linda

Simply Stunning! Perfect nesting spot...

  • 5 of 5

Craig & Linda,

Thank you so much for allowing our family to enjoy your spectacular home! This was our second visit to the beautiful state of Colorado, and by far the best! We found the perfect spot in your home to enjoy the many activities offered nearby. Our stay was truly exceptional, it was absolutely everything we’d hope for. The attention to detail with your home decor was spot on for the location and style of your home. I can't say enough about the views, simply stunning! Plenty of room for our group of seven to enjoy peaceful alone time throughout the house. The trampoline was an added bonus we didn’t expect, but certainly a hidden treasure that brighten my 6 year old’s day. We’re looking into planning another trip to this area and hope your home will be available.

Many Blessings to you and yours!
