About the property

3+ Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Baths In A Spacious, Private Log Cabin On 35 Acres With Views

This log cabin is the quiet retreat that the doctor ordered for your get-away from stress and the pressures of your fast-paced life. It is located on 35 acres in a gated community and a 20 minute drive from the Royal Gorge with its rafting and sight-seeing activities. It is cozy and charmingly decorated. It is truly a quiet getaway. There is Direct TV, WiFi and a land line phone, but no reliable cell service.

The cabin has three levels. On the lower level walk out there is a bedroom with queen bed and a large bath and a bunk area that sleeps 4. The family room includes a TV and DVD player (including some family DVDs), a piano and game table.

The main level kitchen is furnished with everything necessary for your cooking needs. There is a glass topped stove, granite counter tops, mixer, coffee maker, coffee grinder, microwave and blender. It has excellent water with a 700 foot well. The great room is furnished with leather couches in front of a pellet stove which operates on a thermostat with supplemental electric heat. The master bedroom is located on this level as well as laundry facilities.

The upper level consists of a bedroom with queen bed, bathroom and a loft overlooking the great room. You'll enjoy relaxing in the leather recliner with beautiful views of the pine covered hills.

There is a closet full of games and puzzles and a large, carpeted loft in the garage that is a favorite play area for kids and teens. This area is accessed by a ladder and should be used with caution.

The wrap-around deck is ideal for relaxing, eating outside, watching the wildlife, feeding the hummingbirds, or observing the nighttime stars from the telescope. The north and south sides are covered for daytime shade and there are chairs for relaxing as well as a large table for family meals. A BBQ grill is kept in the garage and can easily be rolled out to the patio for your BBQ dinners.

About Joe and Pat Gossack

We built this cabin as a private family retreat and have greatly enjoyed it over the years. Our three generations love getting away to the mountains and have enjoyed many happy days here. It's been a blessing to share with friends and we're happy to share it with you.

Joe and Pat Gossack purchased this cabin in 2003

What makes this cabin unique

This property can accommodate several families or couples for quiet getaways or family reunions. It is spacious and private yet close enough to town for activities or dinners out. The Colorado mountains are at your fingertips and you'll enjoy 360 degree views of the mountains from the wrap around deck. Hiking and biking are out the front door and more adventurous activities are close by. The beautifully crafted log home will provide the perfect environment for your Colorado getaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for entrusting us with your beautiful cabin! Everything here was a treat, from the wonderful décor to watching the hummingbirds, to the absolute quiet (once our kids went to bed). This is an awe-inspiring place, both inside and out!

Family sized cabin in the mountains

This is a wonderful cabin for families! Plenty of room with three master bedrooms, each with private bathrooms and showers on three different levels. A four bed bunk area for kids. This house has everything you need and more. Our family enjoyed our stay very much and would love to go again in the future. Thank you Leilani for keeping us informed and making our stay so welcoming.

Beautiful home that's perfect for my family, my brother and his family, and our parents to meet for our summer get away. Comfortably sleeps 10. Kitchen is well equipped with cookware, cutlery, dishes... If you are looking for a place to go to spend quality time together without the distractions that come with urban life, this is the perfect cabin!

Very comfortable cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this cabin.The layout is nice as everyone has their own space. It is well equipment with everything you need to make family dinners. There are great views from the deck. The only little thing is there are mice. They got into our candy one night and ate it all. We saw them running across the floor in the basement and on the main level. This cabin is out in the woods so you can expect a few critters.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the cabin. We are so sorry you had to deal with mice. We have since fixed a ripped screen and added a screen door downstairs to help mitigate the problem. We're doing what we can to hopefully avoid the problem in the future. Thanks for the review!

This was an awesome place to stay in Canon City, CO!!! My family already can't wait to come back here-there is everything you need already here and the hosts are so gracious and quick to respond! The pictures can't do it justice-it is every more amazing in person. One of our favorite parts was the drive to the cabin viewing the wildlife and the hummingbird feeders with a note how to fill them-gave us hours of relaxation and gazing at them! I'm still so greatful that Pat and Joe rent this place! Memories made in the most wonderful place. It is very close to white water rafting and Royal Gorge and we went 1 1/2 hours away to Colorado City for the day. BOTTOM LINE--COME STAY HERE!
