About the property

Come and relax in our 8 person hot tub overlooking Lake Magnuson in the Rocky Mountains. This cozy A-frame cabin is located in Florissant, Colorado, about an hour from Colorado Springs and two hours from Denver Airport (DIA). It is also just a short 14 miles from the historic mining and gambling town of Cripple Creek, Colorado. Grocery stores, restaurants and movie theater are about 20 minutes away. Relaxation and romance are easy in this peaceful setting, where you are nestled in the aspens of a secluded, picturesque valley. Many mornings, wake up to the deer grazing outside the cabin. It has been the "HOMEAWAY" for many honeymoons, anniversaries, marriage proposals, and birthdays, etc.

A queen-sized bed is upstairs, along with a futon in the adjacent reading area. Both covered and uncovered decks are accessible outside the bedroom, each with two chairs and a table, overlooking the lake.

Downstairs is a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom and living room with a sleeper sofa. TV Service on the 55” Smart TV is provided by DIRECT TV and includes Cinemax . There is also Satellite WIFI for you Google buffs. Sirius radio provides all types of music for your listening pleasure. The wood-burning stove puts out a quiet, comfortable warmth. There is a barbecue grill, log bench and outdoor patio furniture and the lake is less than a minute walk from the cabin. Just Outside the kitchen, is another deck, with additional patio seating and a small fire-pit.

"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 tourist attractions, gambling, restaurants, small towns, and yet still be secluded. Vehicle parking in the driveway is within 15' of the cabin door, for easy access. There is an outside electrical outlet to plug in your vehicle in the winter.

Although the cabin is on a lake, we highly recommend that for gold medal fishing, Eleven Mile Resevoir and Canon is located in Lake George, about thirty minutes away.

Check-in is at 3PM and check-out is at 11Am.

"PET FRIENDLY" with a fenced-in area outside and a memory foam bed inside for your four-legged friends.

Make this your next HOMEAWAY.

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.

Absolutely beautiful! Wonderful place if you are looking for a quiet relaxing place.

  • 5 of 5

Loved seeing all the stars while enjoying the hot tub and nice solar lights in a path to the lake. Was very quiet and relaxing. We saw deer every day even with our dog running around outside most of the time. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing a quiet getaway.

Our stay was wonderful! The cabin was cozy, and had everything we needed to enjoy our get-a-way.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time celebrating our Anniversary at the cabin. It was cozy, tastefully furnished, and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The surrounding scenery, covered in light snow, was beautiful. The hot tub was incredible, and at night the stars were too numerous to count. It was the perfect location to celebrate our special occasion.

Perfect honeymoon Cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went to the cabin for our honeymoon and had a perfect time. We Hopped in the hot tub a couple times, cooked soup while we were there. Everything you need to cook is there, clean towels and blankets. Very quiet. It snowed the day before we got there so the roads weren’t bad at all. It was very beautiful, the lake was frozen. Even saw a family of wild turkey crossing the road. And had deer at the back patio multiple times. I recommend this cabin!

Owner's Response: Luke, I am very happy that your honeymoon at the cabin turned out to be all that you expected. The turkey are special to see. For being convenient to some smaller towns, the cabin is in a great location. Come visit us on your first anniversary and thank you for choosing the cabin. Steve
