Property description

Come enjoy our beautifully remodeled cabin on a 1.5-acre fenced property overlooking Plamann Lake near Lake George. The Wagon Tongue cabin is conveniently located 45 miles west of Colorado Springs and just 20 miles from Woodland Park. The location is perfect for those who want to enjoy Colorado`s great outdoors while staying close to all the city attractions.

This unique cabin borders Pike National Forest. Ride out our back door on your horses, ATVs, dirt bikes, or snowmobiles into endless forest trails. Out the front door enjoy breathtaking views of Plamann Lake and the mountains. Please note: Plamann Lake is private property. No trespassing or fishing allowed.

Enjoy all the comforts of home in our spacious, 1,300 square foot., three bedroom, one bathroom cabin. It has been completely remodeled and newly furnished. Two of the bedrooms are furnished with queen size beds, dressers and night stands. The third bedroom has two twin beds and a dresser, it's great for a kids' room. There is also a queen size hide-a-bed couch in the living room for two additional people.

The Wagon Tongue cabin has a total sleeping capacity of 8.

The living room is furnished with a cozy couch, chair, and ottoman. Relax in this room while watching TV or playing games with friends and family.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all major appliances including a dishwasher, microwave, a gas range with oven, and refrigerator. You'll find all cooking utensils, pans, and dishes ready for you to whip up a great meal. Just bring the food! There is also a barbecue grill on the back deck to enjoy cooking outdoors. The dining room seats six and the bar seats four. Both are open to the kitchen area. For your convenience there is also a separate laundry room with new HE front load washer and dryer.

Don't forget to enjoy the great outdoor activities right on the property. We have a regulation size horse shoe pit for guests to enjoy a little friendly competition. There's also a swing set for the kiddos. Or maybe you want to lounge around on either of the spacious decks. The front deck has partial cover so you can even sit outside while it is raining! Soak in the beautiful views and Colorado weather. After a day of playing, you might enjoy relaxing in the 6-person hot tub overlooking the lake then roast some marshmallows, make s'mores, and tell stories around the open fire pit. The evening air is fresh, cool, crisp and stars seem so close you can almost touch them.

The Wagon Tongue cabin is a very cozy, versatile cabin. It is ideal for family holidays, reunions, anniversary celebrations, or honeymoons. It's perfect for hunting and fishing groups or just one person. It's completely furnished with modern but rustic furniture to give you the warm, cozy feeling of the Colorado mountains with all the comforts of home. You are welcome to bring your horses, ATVs, or snowmobiles to ride in the forest adjacent to the property.

Venture down to Eleven Mile Canyon for some quality water river fishing. We are near some of the best fishing in Colorado such as the South Platte River, Eleven Mile Canyon, Arkansas River, Spinney, and Eleven Mile Reservoir.

Red Door Vacation Rentals

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My husband & I are co-owners of Red Door Vacation Rentals with my sister & brother-in-law. We all love to travel & explore the outdoors together. Purchasing homes together has allowed us to share all the things we love with all our family and friends. We hope you will enjoy our homes as much as we do! John & Kim Woodland Park, CO

Why the Owner Chose Florissant, CO, USA:
Our cabin is very easy to get to yet nestled back in a little forest community for a great wilderness experience. We have a private membership lake right in front of the cabin & border National Forest for ATV riding, hiking, hunting etc. Even though this is a quiet mountain community there is still many great attractions near by. Cripple Creek mining/gaming town, Florissant Fossil beds, Woodland Park & Pikes Peak. Our cabin is the perfect retreat for us to get away from the hustle bustle of everyday life & just enjoy all the beautiful surroundings & wildlife. We love spending time at the cabin with family and friends. We are sure you & and your family will enjoy it as much as ours. There have been many great memories made at the cabin and many more to come!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin sits on 1.5 acres bordering National Forest on one side & over looking the private lake on the front. Enjoy hiking, biking or ATV riding right out the front door. Tell great stories while roasting marshmellows over the campfire. Have family gatherings and cook out on the grill while playing lawn darts, crocket, horseshoes or volley ball or just sit on the either of the great decks just soaking up the Colorado sunshine & all of its natural beauty.
