Great stay! Was clean, comfortable and remote. Perfect for what we wanted. Will go again.
We stayed this past week at this restful cabin in Florissant. The location is off the beaten path as another review indicates so we were well prepared for this. We did Garden of the Gods, Royal Gorge Train, Old Colorado City, Pikes Peak and so much more. We just planned well and packed a cooler with drinks etc as we planned to be gone for the day.
The cabin has a beautiful porch, with two wicker chairs and a table with 4 chairs. The hot tub was amazing and we used it each night. The pond is great and I did walk down to it each morning and night, just be careful it can be a little slippery in the mornings. We had deer visit us so the wildlife was fun too.
Amenities in the cabin were well utilized, the Keurig is a great need for me and we were able to make breakfast and late night snacks if needed. There is a Walmart in Woodland Park which is where we shopped for things we needed for the week. We also stopped at City Market for a few things we forgot, which was closer!
I would caution that you arrive in daylight so that you are aware of where you're going as there are no lights and one or two sharp turns. Once you get the lay of the land you should be fine. The roads are not paved to the cabin so take it slow for any unexpected dips in the gravel.
Leo was very attentive and texted me to be sure we made it to the cabin and any questions to feel free to text him. We only had an issue of not enough bath towels for the 4 of us, Leo had the cleaning crew drop some off on Tuesday (2nd full day). The bedroom TV I had an issue with getting regular TV but was able to get Netflix so it was completely fine (Leo did offet to chat over the phone to solve this, it wasn't a major deal for me as we weren't in the bedroom much!).
Overall the cabin was very clean, well stocked with seasonings, some K cups, pots, pans, paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap etc. We would definitely rent this cabin again should we visit Colorado in the future!
This place was amazing very clean and comfortable just like home away from home. We enjoyed the wildlife and the deer where very friendly with us and would visit us every morning while we drank our coffee. Very convenient for a lot of attractions in the area we will be back thanks so much for a great anniversary get away!

Beautiful inside and out the wildlife was the best we where visited by deer every morning while having our coffee I would recommend this place to anyway that loves to venture out and see the sites of Colorado it is so close to so many attractions and it is also off the well beaten path of tourist so it’s nice to retreat back to and have peace and quite
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this lovely property! The cabin is as advertised and includes tons of little touches such as a very comfortable king size bed, stocked coffee maker, flip-of-a-switch fireplace and plenty of towels and other amenities.
The location was excellent for our activities. We enjoyed numerous hiking trails within 20 minutes drive, such as the National Monument Fossil beds (several nice trails, 10 min away), South Platte River Trailhead, the Crags, and Mueller State Park. We would go hiking during the days, pick up a juicy burger from Russ' in Divide or Mexican food in Woodland Park and then head back to the cozy cabin, turn on the fire place, and enjoy the hot tub and solitude under a beautiful star-filled mountain sky. We didn't even get to the Wolf Sanctuary tour (right down the road), Cripple Creek, or some of the other things close by on our list, so will definitely have to come back. A great getaway and basecamp - hosts were very helpful, communicative and went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable.
