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.

Best Kept Secret In Evergreen
Visited family for Thanksgiving and we must say that this home exceeded expectations by far. We totally felt at home and comfortable. Will be one of the most memorable family holidays. A MUST STAY IF LOOKING FOR A ROMANTIC OR FAMILY STAY IN THE EVERGREEN AREA
Clean, quiet, well appointed cabin in a scenic environment.
Ken is an extremely accommodating host. The property was well equipped with everything you will need to enjoy your stay. It was clean and ready for our arrival. We would highly recommend this property. Thanks for the hospitality.
We had such a great time! The attention to detail was noticed - made for an enjoyable stay. So close to shopping, hiking and restaurants. It was a successful book club trip! Thanks Ken for being a great owner!
This cottage was a delight to stay in. It has been wonderfully updated, very comfortable and we really didn't want to leave! The only thing missing was a fan. The master bedroom doesn't have a ceiling fan and my husband and I love the air circulating and the noise, so we bought a box fan and left it there for future guests. (Just in case anyone else needs noise to sleep) :-)
No detail was left out, there was even a binder with all instructions to everything. From the dishwasher to the fireplace. Is this place for sale?!?! We loved it and know everyone else will too. Thank you Ken for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cottage. We will return!
We truly enjoyed staying there & would do so again
The accurate VRBO listing description & pictures say it all. I would give it the highest rating possible. The binder with all pertinent information was most impressive. It was everything the VRBO listing said it would be. We would have liked to have stayed longer & almost changed our plans to do so. Ken was an excellent VRBO host, ensuring everything was ready for our stay & willing to assist if we had questions about the area.
