Overview

About the property

Come relax in the 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. Relax in a peaceful setting, 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.

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 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, but be aware that at peak times it may run a little slower, after all, these are the Rocky Mountains. Sirius radio provides all types of music for your listening pleasure. A wood-burning stove puts out a quiet, comfortable warmth. As you walk through the patio doors onto the deck, overlooking the lake, there is a barbecue grill, log bench and outdoor patio furniture and the lake is less than a 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 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 more 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.

So sweet!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for the two of us newlyweds! We loved its simplicity and warm atmosphere it provided. Beautiful lake and cozy hot tub made it all the better! Only bummer was that the wifi was super slow, but that's about it! Amazing otherwise.

Owner's Response: Geertje, Glad you enjoyed the stay. The internet is satellite and sometimes runs slow during peak use times. It's just something we can't control. Wish we could. Steve

Relaxing time!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is beautiful and had everything we needed for a great vacation! We took a day trip to Cripple Creek, and that was fun, and the hot tub felt great. We never could connect to wi-fi, but we had lots of books to read and we took lots of walks. It was a good tip to keep the bathroom door closed for warmth in there--it felt so good. Now if there had just been some fish in that lake . . . ;)

Owner's Response: We don't really try to advertise the property as a fishing cabin although they did stock the lake with trout last summer and it is catch and release. We always recommend Eleven Mile Resevoir and Canon for more gold medal fishing. Thanks for visiting and really glad you enjoyed the stay. The wifi router is only two months old and all others have connected so I am at a loss. Nonetheless you enjoyed and that is what counts. Steve
