This cozy cabin is located in the Rocky Mountains 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" Smart 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. During the winter, Teller County plows the roads well and 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.
There is an on-premise hot tub Which we turn on Feb 9th, 2017. See the photo. As our guests at the cabin, you can also enjoy our membership at the spa in Cripple Creek which has a large indoor pool, dry sauna, indoor hot tub and exercise facility.
Check-in is at 3PM and check-out is at 11Am.
Make this your next HOMEAWAY.

The cabin is located in a secluded valley within a minute's walk to the lake.
Warm, secluded and private , yet easily accessible.
The only cabin on the lake is exactly how it is advertised. There is plenty of space to explore and multiple patios give you very nice scenery to relax. There is a decent-sized backyard for the dog with a dog shelter that should keep your pet nice and dry. The kitchen comes with everything you need to cook meals, and there was lots of firewood (which was much appreciated in March). The house itself is pretty small, but very cozy for 2 people. It also has internet with enough speed to browse the web and check mail, but it is very slow for a city standard (don't expect to stream any videos).
All-in-all, my wife, my dog, and I had a very relaxing time and recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable getaway house in the southern Rocky Mountain Colorado area.
What a fantastic find. The cabin was perfect for a Christmas getaway - snow, wood burning stove, privacy and gorgeous views! The kitchen was perfect for cooking all of our meals and even had spices and other supplies for use.
Only thing to note - DEFINITELY take the directions they give and NOT gps directions. I forgot the directions and tried following the blue dot on gps...that resulted in getting the car stuck in a snowy hill and waiting for the tow truck to come get us.
There's a little grocery store about 15min away in Divide, CO that will have everything you need. A convenient store and liquor store in Florissant, CO should you feel the need. If you come in snowy weather, highly recommend 4wheel drive.
Overall, loved the place!
The cabin was quiet, cozy and just as advertised. The lake was beautiful at sunset in the jacuzzi. We had a day of Fall, and two days of winter. It was amazing. The wifi is as expected for a mountain property, somewhat temperamental and affected by the weather. Just made for a movie night. Everything we needed was in there. Thanks for a great visit!
We had a wonderful weekend in the cabin. Cozy space with an awesome hot tub looking over lake. Seating everywhere with decks all around and a dog run! Thoughtful with the placement of trash areas and what not. Spuer cool
What a restful place, with rustic and warm decor, deer, birds and chipmunks, a really comfy bed, nice sitting areas outside, a great hot tub and terrific facilities for a dog. Nice cabin for 2-4 people. Only down side is remodeling piles outside that haven't been removed yet and some thistle in the area. Managers checked in and made sure they did all they could to meet our needs. We will be back!
We had the PERFECT stay here. It was a peaceful and shockingly beautiful area without neighbors. The house was clean and thoughtfully stocked with everything you need and more - even wood ready for a fire or charcoal for the grill. The hot tub was brand new and fantastic. The owners were nice enough to send an email at arrival to confirm everything was as expected. The lake has some beautiful 'bows in it - catch and release only since it's an HOA lake. We saw a red fox and numerous deer right outside the house.
Thank you so much for a magical few nights!
