The Pikes Peak area of southern Colorado is the perfect place for a vacation and this cozy cabin puts you close to some of the best attractions. With two bedrooms and one bath, it`s a great escape for a small family or a small group of friends.
When you think of a vacation in the mountains, what comes to mind? Your own cabin, blue sky through the trees, wildlife, wood burning fires, and great company. If you’re thinking, “That’s it!” Then the cabin on Ridge Road is the one for you.
This charming cabin is the perfect escape for a small family or a few friends looking to get away from it all. The interior pine walls draw the cabin together from room to room for a cozy and rustic feeling. The kitchen has solid, oak cabinets, stocked with everything you need to make a great meal including plates, glasses, pots, pans, and cooking utensils. The dining area seats six, so gather round together to enjoy some great food and relive your favorite parts of the day!
The cabin is in a great location for those looking to get outside. After a short drive, you can be hiking in The Crags in Divide or in Mueller State Park. It’s also just miles from Pike National Forest which has trails for hikers, bikers, and ATVs! Or maybe you’re looking for some nightlife? Cripple Creek’s casinos are a 40 minute drive away!
And after a day of hiking or biking, there’s nothing better than a wood burning stove in the living room with a cup of cocoa or maybe a glass of wine for you and your special someone as you celebrate a great weekend together.
Tell the boys not to worry--there’s DirecTV and WiFi at the home, so no one will miss the big game and you can upload all the pictures you took during the day for the friends back home to see!
The cabin features two bedrooms, each with queen beds, and a fully remodeled bathroom with a combination tub and shower. And if you need a bit more room, the couch in the living room pulls out for extra sleeping space!
The cabin may be small, but it’s got plenty of space for everyone to go their own way at the end of the day to unwind and recharge for the next morning.
The entire home is open to guests.

Our Mission Statement:
Our mission is to create a truly unique lodging experience for each and every guest. We have a vast variety of homes to choose from. All of which have their own special qualities. We strive to create wonderful memories and friendships for every guest.
We are a strong Christian family devoted to serving the Lord and others. We all have strong family values and have always cherished our family and friends. We love to travel, play and work together.
A few years ago we decided to take on a new adventure and bought a cabin together. We had every intention of fixing it up and selling it. We built so many memories during the remodel process that when it was all finished we couldn’t bear to sell it.
We ended up keeping it as a family cabin. A few years later we bought an old Victorian and the same thing happened. We put our hearts and souls into it, then added our heirloom antiques and the house came back to life.
Once again, we couldn’t part with our lovely Victorian. That is when we realized the Lord was calling on us to share our wonderful blessings with others. Our vacation homes continue to blossom year after year. We have also expanded into a full management company for other vacation homes.
We have truly been blessed with wonderful families, friends and the opportunity to share our blessings with others. We look forward to creating many more wonderful memories for our families, friends and yours.
John, Kim, Lester & Kelly
