About this home

Thank you for considering our mountain cabin, Serenity House Colorado. Before booking please read the ENTIRE description especially the “Things to Note” section. We look forward to hosting you and want you to have a peaceful memorable stay in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado!


THE PROPERTY: Serenity House Colorado is a secluded 3 bedroom 3 bath house located on 5 picturesque acres bordering public land with private access to Four Mile Creek. Sit on the wrap- around deck and enjoy a cup of coffee while taking in the view of rock formations and nearby mountains. Picnic by the stream or cozy up with your loved ones to watch a movie or play one of the many games provided. It's great for people who want to get away and recharge or people looking for a peaceful retreat within an hour of many Colorado attractions. (See location below)



DETAILED DESCRIPTION: Serenity House is located at the end of a 3.5 mile dirt road. On the first floor you will find a family room with TV and DVD player and sofa bed, a bedroom with a twin bed, and a bathroom with a shower. The main floor is located up a flight of stairs. There you can relax in the living room, cook a meal in the kitchen equipped with modern appliances, play a game around the dining room table, listen to records, or relax on the deck. This floor also has a bedroom with queen bed and an partially updated full bathroom. The large master bedroom is located on the 3rd floor. Get ready in the morning in the large master bath or take a nap in the king size bed.



THINGS TO NOTE:

•There is NO CELL SIGNAL at the cabin. We do have a landline for domestic calls. No international calling, please. Many carriers offer WiFi calling which means you can call and text as usual over Wifi and you can iMessage. However, if you are not comfortable with no cell signal then this is not the place for you.



•Internet service is provided by satellite. Speeds vary throughout the day and range from moderately fast to slow. Video streaming is unpredictable so we have provided a large selection of DVDS.



•One of the best features of the cabin is that it’s surrounded by nature. The 5 acre lot is mostly left wild. It’s part of the beauty. (If we cut all the wild grass it would turn brown and wouldn’t sway in the breeze.) Being surrounded by 1000s of acres (public lands) of nature, means there are bugs, lizards, and wildlife. We have seen fox, bear, skunk, and deer in the area. While the cabin is cleaned thoroughly between each reservation, you may still find unwanted “guests”. If the occasional spider or ant freaks you out, then this is not the property for you. :-D



•The cabin is on a sensitive septic system. It is VERY IMPORTANT that only reasonable amounts toilet paper get flushed down the toilet in one flush. Please DO NOT flush anything (including “flushable” wipes) other than toilet paper down the toilet. In addition, scrape plates into the trash before rinsing them for the dishwasher. Do not put food down the garbage disposal. We thank you in advance for helping to keep our system in good working order!



•Plan and bring supplies with you. While there is a small convenience store, Evergreen Station, located within 15 minutes, the nearest large grocery is 40 minutes away in Woodland Park or Canon City.



•There is a path down to the creek but it is not paved. The path doesn’t require any special athletic abilities but be aware it’s a simple rustic dirt path with a

few rock steps. Something to consider if mobility is an issue. Please watch out for cacti and rocks as well.


•The back of the lot borders public land but there are neighbors on each side. Their houses are hundreds of feet away and mostly hidden by trees. (See aerial photo.) Please do not cross the fence and go onto their property.



•The wood stove is not to be used during the summer months of June-August. Winter guests will be responsible for bringing their own wood or pellets.



•The cabin is a peaceful retreat from busy life. It is not set up for guests beyond the maximum occupancy of 8. Please be honest about the number of guests. If you plan to bring more people please make arrangements with us in advance and we will arrange for additional help with the cleaning and add the extra occupant fees to your booking. Parties, large social events, or photo/video shoots are prohibited unless officially arranged with the host.



•While we have done many updates to the cabin, please note that parts of the cabin are not “hotel-like”. It is a cozy space with character that you will enjoy if you love slowing down, getting away, and soaking in nature's beauty.



•As a courtesy, we provide a propane grill. We do our best to keep the propane tank filled, however, there is no guarantee that the propane will be filled. If you need propane it can be filled at the Evergreen Station about 15 minutes away. Please exercise caution and please turn off grill after each use and do not leave the grill unattended while lit. Cleaning the grill is not included in the cleaning fee. Please be considerate and clean it after use.



•There is not an AC but temperatures rarely get high enough in the mountains to need one. There are fans.



•Sleeping arrangements: There is a king bed, queen bed, twin bed, sofa bed, and two foldable mattresses best suited for younger children. There are extra blankets in each bedroom.



•We come up to the cabin between guests to keep up with maintenance. If there is anything that needs our attention please let us know so we can take care of it!
