This is a magical place and you'll feel it as soon as you arrive. It's where the "purple mountain majesties" reside from Katharine Lee Bate's "America the Beautiful". Sit in the living room and take in the magnificent views. 12 months per year, the Fortress at Pike's Peak provides a fantastic getaway for up to 12 people.

My wife and I stayed there for our honeymoon and it was great! House was clean and in great shape. It was in a great location with tons of very beautiful views. Plenty of windows in the house so even on those rainy days, you still get to see the mountains. We loved it!

This place is simply amazing. Are you staying to hike? Plenty of hiking within driving distance. Want to just get away from the city and stay isolated somewhere? The farthest you would have to go is the front deck to witness all the reasons you come to Colorado. I will absolutely…

The cabin was very nice. We loved our stay there and it exceeded our expectations. I loved how secluded it was. I can’t wait to stay here again:)

Response from David:
Thank you Michaela for the nice words. Full Disclosure: for prospective guests reading this, please know we do have one neighbor about 40 yards away down the hill and to the side. We share the drive from the road. They are full time residents, retired couple, and wonderful people my guests love to meet if they cross paths. But if someone wants total seclusion then they should be aware. :) Thanks for being such terrific guests!

We absolutely loved our stay in this space! It wasn’t too far from things to do but secluded enough for a very relaxing experience! We loved hot tubbing at night and exploring the mountains during the day!

I'm a former east coaster who loves it out west. After I left NYC in 2003, I lived on top of a mountain in Cripple Creek, CO for almost 5 years. I had a world class view sitting in my living room. How cool is that? . I reside full time in Henderson, NV about 20 minutes from Th…
