About Ken Pfeiffer

I am from Philadelphia and my wife is from Seoul. I am a retired army officer and my wife is still working as a surgical nurse. We moved to Colorado to be near our two kids and (so far) 1 grandchild and originally found the cottage by accident as we were exploring the evergreen area which we had fallen in love with. It was a true "fixer-upper' which we have enjoyed renovating and improving first as a weekend getaway, later as a possible retirement residence, and finally as a short term vacation rental. We think you'll find the cottage and its surroundings just as delightful as we have!

Ken Pfeiffer purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Ken Pfeiffer chose Evergreen

This property was just at the end of a spectacular drive along upper Bear Creek which features not only beautiful Creekside vistas and pastures, but also gorgeous mountain homes. The cottage overlooks a serene meadow in one direction and the impressive Mount Evans in another. We just thought the cottage was beautifully situated and quite pretty inside as well!

What makes this cottage unique

As mentioned, we saw this property as a diamond in the rough which we've been polishing for several years and it has become quite a little gem.

Evergreen Gem

  • 5 of 5

We visited this area, and stayed at this home due to my husband being in a wedding at the barn memorial park. We stayed with another couple and it was perfect! Loved the location, and the home was clean, beautiful, and stocked with all essentials needed to make us feel right at home. We would definitely stay there again, and reccomend to loved ones. Two thumbs up!!

Quaint, quiet

  • 5 of 5

Ken and Tou g were great hosts. The house was clean and organized. Location was far enough away but close enough to Evergreen to get supplies for cooking out. We enjoyed watching the family of Elk hang out around the house! Thanks so much!

wonderful property 5+ Stars!

  • 5 of 5

Really loved where this property was located, it was perfect for us because we were attending a 3 day concert at Red Rocks and the drive back and forth was not bad at all. There was plenty of scenery along the way and we were able to go into Evergreen everyday to eat and shop. We were able to see plenty of wildlife, two elk right across the street, rabbit, fox and chipmunk right there at the cabin. Oh and plenty of hummingbirds! We would take drives in the morning, that is usually when we seen all of the wildlife. The golf course had several deer and elk walking all around the lake area.

The cabin itself met every expectation and we could not have picked a better place to stay. We hope to go back the same time next year!

Thank you Ken for the amazing hospitality!

Quaint homey cottage in the mountains.

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for a getaway. It's nestled in the mountains with tons of wildlife all around but close enough to Denver to make a day trip. There was a bit of a communication snafu getting into the cottage but it was cleared up quickly and the owner, Ken stopped by with a very nice bottle of wine for the inconvenience. Red rocks park and mt. Evans are really close and should not be missed!
