Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Incredible mountain views, fishing, hiking, site seeing.

As you arrive at the cabin in the early evening, a small group of deer raise their heads from the grass to see who the new guests are. Several hundred feet in the distance , the cabin can be seen; the deck and stairs seem to be illuminated by tiny stars. Stepping inside the door the real cabin interior is very present: log walls; hardwood floors and a wood-paneled roof. The wide open living space includes a well-furnished kitchen; an elegant dining area; a very comfortable living area and of course a log burning fireplace. The warmth of the Rocky Mountain southwestern decor is tastefully present.

Incredible mountain views, 30 minutes to gold medal trout fishing, gold camps of Cripple Creek and Victor, Co., Mine tours and attractions, 60 minutes to Garden of the Gods, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Pikes Peak Cog Railroad, Cave of the Winds, and the Cliff Dwelling. There is also BLM (public land) Hiking Trails just 15 minutes from the property. This is just a small sampling of the long list of outdoor activities in this beautiful part of Colorado.

Loved our stay here.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. I loved the location and the view from the porch. There’s so much to do in the area and I know there’s so much we missed. We will definitely look this cabin up again if/when we return to the area.

Perfect Secluded Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mike & Carol's cabin was absolutely perfect! It has such a wonderful isolated feel and a beautiful view from every direction. The area surrounding the cabin has great trees and granite outcroppings that make for the perfect nature walk. We were even able to watch deer grazing right out the window one morning. Our favorite thing was to sit on the porch that wraps around three sides and just soak in the cool, mountain air. We have stayed at vacation rentals before, but none so immaculate and well equipped. These owners have thought of everything you might need to fully enjoy your stay. And the furnishings were not old dormitory cast offs, but nice quality things, which you don't often see in rentals. One thing I would note...if you intend to spend a great deal of time in Cripple Creek, it is 30 minutes away. But the wonderful seclusion of the cabin, and the beautiful scenery on the drive in, make it all worth it. Can't wait to stay here again!

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is absolutely amazing and the owners are easily accessible by message or phone they keep you updated on anything that may hinder your stay the view is so beautiful we were lucky to catch a thunderstorm and sit on the wrap around porch and absorb the views the cabin is fully stocked as described in listing and the pictures are exactly what you see when you get there the drive up to the cabin is a bit bumpy which was the only complaint any of us had you are about 30 minutes to 1 hour away from a lot of attractions like cave of the winds, garden of the gods, and pikes peak I would highly recommend this property very clean and well maintained seen several deer on the property at night this is a great place.
