Overview

About the property

Come enjoy our 8 person hot tub overlooking Lake Magnuson in the Rocky Mountains. This cozy cabin is located 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.

Upstairs is a queen-sized bed , along with a futon in the sitting area. There are two decks outside the bedroom. One is a small covered sitting area with two chairs and a table, overlooking the lake. The second is an 8x10 deck in the sun, also with patio furniture and nice views.

Downstairs is a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom and living room with a queen sleeper sofa. TV Service on the 42" 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 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. Outside the kitchen, is a fourth 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 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 in the winter.

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.

Beautiful cabin !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a place to get away and found this charming little cabin. It was perfect. We had everything we needed. Nice and private with a beautiful view on the lake. Great hot tub for those relaxing nights and close to many lakes for a day of fishing. Thanks Steve for everything!

Everything you want out of a place like this and more

  • 5 of 5

Super clean , well-kept, beautiful..we brought and left a telescope, though there were already binoculars.. also left a fishing pole and Light tackle, I had luck with rubber nightcrawlers. Hot tub was super nice . I highly suggest "Paradise Cove" ( beautiful waterfall about 15 minutes away) .... I had a chance to speak with the lady who helps maintain it after we had checked out.. super inviting personality, super friendly. already trying to plan my next trip back

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.
