About the property

Come enjoy the 8 person hot tub overlooking the lake in the Rocky Mountains at their best. This cozy cabin is located on Lake Magnuson in Florissant, Colorado, about an hour from Colorado Springs. It is also just a short 14 miles from the historic mining and gambling town of Cripple Creek, Colorado. Relax in a peaceful setting, nestled in the aspens of a secluded, picturesque valley. Wake up to the deer grazing outside the cabin. It has been the "HOMEAWAY" for many honeymoons, anniversaries, marriage proposals, and birthdays, etc.

The cabin is an A-frame with the bedroom upstairs. There is a queen-sized bed , along with a futon for reading, sitting or just sleeping. Outside the bedroom is a covered sitting area with two chairs and a table, overlooking the lake.

Downstairs is a fully-equipped kitchen with a instant hot/cold water dispenser, a bathroom and living room. TV Service on the 42" TV is provided by DIRECT TV and includes Cinemax . There is also Satellite WIFI for you Google buffs and Sirius radio provides all types of music for your listening pleasure. The wood-burning stove provides quiet, comfortable warmth. As you walk through the patio doors onto the deck, also overlooking the lake, there is a barbecue grill, log bench and outdoor patio furniture. The lake is just a one minute walk from the cabin. Fishing is allowed but no boats or swimming.

Outside the kitchen, is a second deck, with additional seating and a small firepit

"The Only Cabin On The Lake" is a great place to spend time alone, with your loved ones, or friends. You can enjoy the proximity to gambling, restaurants, small towns, and still be secluded. You can park your vehicle in the driveway within 15' of the cabin door, making it easy access. An outside electrical outlet is available to plug in your vehicle.

Everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything you need and then some. My wife, dog, and I stayed at this property in October and we cannot wait to go back. The pictures do not do it justice! Everything was perfect from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The house was spotless and well kept. The outdoor space is massive and we loved running around outside. The hot tub was perfect on those chilly nights and the sunsets that can be seen from the area are breathtaking. We had some things we forgot to bring and they were all available at the cabin, they really thought of everything! Thank you for making our stay a great one.

Cozy cabin for a long weekend

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I enjoyed the long weekend here with our dog. The cabin was the perfect size for the three of us and had plenty of room for the dog to run around outside. The hot tub was very nice. We also went to Paradox, one of our favorite breweries, and did some snowboarding on Pikes Peak.

Very cozy space for 2 + dogs!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time at this cabin for a long weekend. The space is very cozy for 2 people plus our 2 dogs. We really enjoyed our time there but wish it had snowed more! The internet is serviceable for a mountain cabin, though the satellite does seem to have a low data cap that we hit. It still functions but is even slower after that. Overall though, it's a really fun place to stay, enjoy some away time, and do some sight-seeing around the area. It's also close to Woodland Park if you forget anything.

Owner's Response: Denise, Thank you for the review. The "Easiest and Correct" directions have always been accessible in the "Pre-Arrival" section of the VRBO Traveler Log-in. I don't know why GPS will take some people a different way, which is more difficult. I am posting a comment to the narrative which instructs guests to use the directions we provide. I can't put the exact address and directions in the narrative due to so much fraud. Unfortunately many guests will still rely on GPS. However with well over 100 bookings, this has been only the second time GPS has been mentioned. I am glad you still enjoyed your stay in spite of the -18 degree temps and the snow. I wish you had notified me. I have been in the cabin during snowfalls and they are beautiful. When you return for another visit (and I hope you do) I will compensate you with two free nights for your inconveniences. Steve
