Our private cottage is perched above waterfalls & a creek and is adjacent to the Pike National Forest in northern Colorado Springs. Hiking trails, bike paths, the Air Force Academy, & numerous other attractions are very close to this private and unique setting.
Our architecturally unique cottage is an 8-sided "Hogan" structure with a wooden ceiling & beams peaking at the center for an umbrella-like effect. Saltillo tile floors, wood lined walls, glass block space dividers, a comfortable bedroom area, living room area, fully equipped kitchen/eating area, and bathroom define the 450+ square foot space. The gorgeous scenery & wildlife can be enjoyed from 2 very private decks, overlooking the waterfalls and perennial creek. We are adjacent to the Pike National Forest and one exit away from the US Air Force Academy.
Popular nearby attractions include Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, US Olympic Center, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, museums, historical sites, and plentiful hiking and biking trails.
The full cottage and adjacent outdoor spaces are yours to enjoy & relax in complete privacy. Our home is a totally separate house but is nearby, on the same property. You will have an access code to the gate, coming and going as you please. Parking area is right next to the cottage.
Interaction with guests
Since we are on property, we are happy to help with questions that are not answered in our comprehensive WELCOME instruction book in the cottage. We think you will have the best experience exploring the area on your own and making new memories with the boundless adventures that await you!
Other things to note
Our Colorado cottage is a wonderful place to relax & unwind, getaway for a romantic weekend, explore & find new adventures, attend US Air Force Academy events, or use as a base camp for venturing further out from the Pikes Peak region.
We ask that you treat the property and cottage as you would your own home and leave it as you found it for our next guests to enjoy. We know most people are considerate and respectful and very much appreciate that attitude!
We value our slice of heaven and the peace it offers and expect our guests to keep their noise levels to a minimum.
NO SMOKING or open flames of any kind (including candles) are permitted anywhere on the property, inside the cottage or outside. We are adjacent to the Pike National Forest which is in a high fire risk area.
Although we love animals, NO PETS are allowed.
NOTE: Maximum of TWO guests only.
We travel extensively and have lived in several countries. Our goal is to duplicate all the positive lodging and travel experiences we have had over the years and offer them to our guests.
