The space

Did I mention the views? Just imagine sitting on the deck having your morning cup of coffee while soaking up the warm Colorado sunshine and breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and trees. This is the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors. Lots of places for hiking, even just stepping out of the cabin is an amazing place to hike and take in the views. Located within 5 miles of groceries, restaurants, and gas stations. We are also located not far from Pikes Peak, Cripple Creek, Woodland Park and Manitou Springs/Garden of the Gods. If you’re looking to venture even further, drive 50 miles to Colorado Springs( an hour drive) or 80 miles to Breckenridge, a beautiful ski resort town( an hour and twenty minutes). The Bears Den highlights one of Colorado's attractions that is often overlooked: the sweetness of mountain life. The Bears Den is a secluded house/cabin in the mountains near Cripple Creek. It has a wood stove in the living room and amazing views. It has 3 queen beds and one queen sofa bed in the living room. Our Den is your home away from home, fully stocked with all necessities. We offer coffees and teas, shampoo, conditioner, soap,hairdryer, board games, books and coloring books. You can reach us at any time and we are really glad to have you as our guest. The Cripple Creek area is a secluded and mountainous region rich with wildlife--we have recently seen several foxes, a family of mountain sheep, and a mother black bear with two cubs! Neighbors have reported seeing bobcats. Local ranches feature llamas and horses, and the idyllic quiet of the Rampart Range, with surprise views of Pikes Peak during the short excursions you can make to Colorado Springs ,as well as local towns like Florissant, Divide, Woodland Park and Manitou Springs. The area between Cripple Creek and Florissant is one of our favorite places because it includes the Fossil Beds National Monument, a green space and reserve of 6000 acres that will never be developed. The park is a very interesting day trip for adults and kids alike, and as you enter Florissant there is even a shop where you can sit and search through shale brought in for your own real fossils (taken from the Monument by careful extraction, the only spot in the US that allows this activity).

Other things to note

The most crucial point to remember is that these mountain forests are very dry in Colorado, so fire safety is key.

Our stay at the cabin was amazing only one night but so worth it the drive alone to the place is breathtaking. When we arrived there were cookies and a bottle of wine and wood stacked for the stove and everything you could want highly recommended to stay here if you want picturesque mountain views and quality time away from the world.

This cabin is definitely the best way to experience Colorado. It had amazing views and was far beyond our expectations. It was very clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Renee even had even stocked up on some groceries and left us some goodies. It was a pleasant surprise after a long day. We highly recommend!

The view of the mountains and nature on the way to the cabin was a great start to an amazing stay. It was very roomy and comfortable. All of the amenities helped make everything pain free. We are already discussing plans to make it back in the future.

I have always been a nature lover, and have enjoyed traveling widely all my life. After living in Austin, Texas for 7 years, on one vacation trip we drove through Colorado, and I knew I had found my home. The cooler weather in the mountains , and the open spaces, amazing views and wildlife have made my decision to move to Colorado very easy.

Since moving to this beautiful state, we have traveled to every corner of it to enjoy the skies, the landscapes, and the breathtaking beauty of the Rocky Mountains.
One of my longtime dreams was to have a bed and breakfast in some lovely spot, but of course finding the right place is the key. During a drive one weekend only minutes from our home, we chanced upon a small cabin in the middle of the woods, and immediately knew this was the spot for The Bears Den. AirBnB then provided the perfect way for us to introduce people to this really special, “off the beaten track” corner of Colorado.

I hope you will enjoy the quiet, the clean air, and the wonderfully varied Colorado skies from The Bears Den, as well as the occasional black bears, deer, foxes, and even a rare bobcat you may see. Whether you use The Bears Den as a base for exploring the surrounding small towns and nature adventures, or as a spot to just sit and relax in the midst of the pines and aspens and enjoy the wind through the trees, we know you will come away from your stay refreshed and relaxed. You will surely appreciate the less crowded roads, the offbeat little stores and old mining towns, and all the opportunities for natural adventures in a part of the state far less familiar to many visitors to Colorado.
