This cute cottage is nestled in the mountains in Cascade, Colorado. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The cottage is large and can accommodate lots of people. There are 2 lakes within walking distance and lots of hiking trails just beside a babbling creek leading to great local restaurants. The mountain view from the upper deck is just stunning. Most of all, I loved being able to see a doe with her 2 beautiful newborn fawns that would come by to greet us several times a day. My family and I had a wonderful relaxing vacation and will definitely come back. The neighbors were also very friendly.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving. Julia was excellent to work with through the whole booking process and prompt in answering our many questions and concerns after booking. She even bought a gate as we were concerned about the one year old falling down the stairs. There is a door at the top of the stairs so the gate wasn't needed. The rooms worked out great for out family as almost everyone had a bedroom, and the couch worked okay for the 4th bed. Kitchen is decently stocked. We ate all of our meals there, and had everything we needed, although a little more dish soap, dishwasher soap, and paper towels would have been nice knowing we were SUPPOSED to be staying 6 nights. However, when I originally booked the house, I asked about a location that would work well and be safe for travel in November with 2 young children. Driving to the cabin, I was pretty scared about the location I had booked for our family. It is in the mountains and on a winding back road. I didn't sleep well the first night due to my concerns, The snow plow did come through each day at 9 AM though, much to my surprise. It was tricky getting in and out of the parking spaces though and sometimes we had to make several attempts before being able to navigate the small hill to the parking spot as it was very slippery. Also, the basement is very cold. We did all we could to block the cold air at the bottom of the door, but it could definitely use a storm door or weatherstripping to block around the 3 other sides. There is no carpet in the basement living space either, only cement, which wasn't good as it was listed as a family area - and used by my son's family of 4. Also, very dirty under the couches so we had to clean the area before letting the 2 young chilcren use it. The knob to the basement door was also coming loose and there was a nail sticking up about 3/8" from one basement tread. Could have called them to fix it, but think they should have been aware of it when cleaning from previous renter. I said we were supposed to stay 6 nights. We ended up vacating the property a day early as we were concerned about being able to leave early the morning of our flights because, we had been getting snow and fog every evening and into each morning and didn't want to risk bad roads and fog on the way to Denver airport which is an hour and a half away in good weather. In all, it is a very nice rental, but either get a four wheel drive vehicle in the winter (we are from Ohio so I am used to snow and ice), or make this a late summer to early fall destination. Oh, and it is easier to get to the property if you take Chipita Park Road past the Elementary School towards Green Mountain Falls then do a left turn on to Fountain Park Road - avoids a lot of turns getting to property.

The living area is upstairs with 2 sets of leather furniture and big flat screen TV. The basement area is not a living room. The parking is very easy and suitable for 3 cars max. There is no hill. It is a level parking. As always in the winter a 4 wheel drive is recommended in the mountains.

We found this cabin to be very homey and comfortable. The beds are great and I loved the velvety soft blankets. Having 2 bathrooms was nice so we could do a 'His' and 'Hers'. The kitchen is well-stocked and convenient to use. The "cabiny" touches such as hardwood floors, brick fireplace, antler tables, aspen log furniture, 2 deer heads, etc. give it an outdoors feel.. My husband enjoyed his morning coffee on the deck and we felt really cozy at night in our special home. The view is wonderful as is the location. It is an easy scenic drive to Manitou Springs, Green Mountain Falls, or Woodland Park. Don't miss The Pantry in GMF or The Pancake House in Manitou. Julia is very nice to communicate with and she answers any questions or concerns promptly. We received the return of our deposit about 1-1/2 week after our check-out date. A great stay in beautiful Colorado, thank you, Julia. .

Place was very clean. View was beautiful and there were easy hikes right from the home. Reasonably close to Colorado Springs, unless you are under time constraints for meetings in the Springs (traffic can be bad). Grocery store approximately 5 minutes away. Several nice tourist places very near: Cave of the Winds, Garden of the gods, Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak cog train or drive, cliff dwellings. Limited parking for 2 cars. Not as posh as might be expected for the money, but very clean and very Colorado. Great that it had wifi.

What a wonderful find! We loved everything about our stay at Cascade Mountain Retreat. Quiet location with fabulous views from the decks. This cozy 3 bedroom cabin is located just minutes from Colorado Springs yet when you are there it feels like you are worlds away from civilization. Deer and elk were frequently spotted right outside the cabin. We also saw a family of foxes. Best of all were the views, we could have sat and stared at the mountains the whole time! Truly picturesque and perfect in every way. Extremely well-appointed and perfectly maintained home with every convenience at our fingertips. The cozy living room and the fireplace was very much appreciated after a long day of hiking, and the gas grill was much used. Although we did not have much time for viewing, the flat screen TV upstairs was a bonus, and the wi-fi connection also was excellent. Julia was an outstanding host and have thought of everything to make their guests comfortable. Would definitely recommend to friends and relatives.

Not only was the location of our trip fabulous, so was the location where we stayed. Julia was great to work with and the house is located near so many attractions (Pikes Peak, Cave of the Winds, Garden of the Gods(Must SEE), Indian Dwellings, Dinosaur Resource Center, Olympic Training Center). Also, you are minutes from Manitou Springs (gift shops, shopping, restaurants) to Woodland Park which offer all modern amenities and some excellent restaurants (AJ's pizza!). The house was clean and ready for us to roll right in (especially after driving from Iowa). Our family of 5 traveled with my in-laws (total of 7) and we all had space and were comfortable. We especially loved the early mornings and evenings on the front deck. Colorado is an awesome destination for the family, everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. We are definitely planning a return trip.

Such a cute, cozy place with a breathtaking view of the mountains! Seven of my friends and I stayed for 3 days and we loved it! It's not very big but it definitely did the trick with no complications at all (with 8 people). We were in driving distance from a couple towns with restaurants and shops so we got to enjoy the beautiful nature and the hot spots.

We had the most wonderful week staying at your beautiful cabin. There is so much to do around that area, first we went for a hike (there is a hiking trail right off the cabin to Green Mountain Falls. Green Mountain Falls is a delightful little town just a mile away with great stores and restaurants. Later in the evening we went to dinner at a local mom and pop restaurant in Cascade called "Wines of Colorado", great place that really gives you the small town experience with great customer service. The cabin itself is gorgeous and really has all the accommodations you can think of or need. It was always nice to come back to the cabin and just sit on the deck and listen to the Fountain Creek in the evening and enjoy a beautiful mountain view from the deck. Best vacation we have had in a long time. Thank you for sharing your beautiful mountain home with us. My only regret is that we had to leave on Sunday!
