Click on "more about the space" below for Covid-19 info and additional pet fees and also cleaning fees for groups of 5 or more. 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. Every picture of views in the listing was taken from the deck.

The space
Please review the House Rules near the bottom of the listing page. It includes info on pet fee and additional cleaning fee for 5+ guests.

There is one neighbor nearby, they are good friends and enjoy interacting and helping guests if you choose to reach out.

Stay at The Fortress and stay safe. It's an amazing getaway for folks to de-stress during these trying times. There is access to great hiking trails only a mile from the house and we provide specific info to booked guests.

"The Fortress" is a perfect getaway no matter what the season. During the summer, cooler mountain temps provide an oasis from the heat. In the fall the colors change and it continues to be a great base camp for outdoor adventurers. It's a spectacular winter wonderland and always a great place to bring the family for holidays as well as special occasions.

It has the best views in the area, some say anywhere, and you don't even have to go outside to see them. Do you see a less expensive place offering the same views from the great room or even from a back deck? Don't waste your hard earned money on a place that has great views for squirrels and birds but not guests. Many places misrepresent their views. The Fortress is the real deal!

Great access to easy hiking. Just one mile drive or hike to get onto trails in Mueller State Park without a fee!

So venture out or stay cozy, yet feel like you're in the middle of it all! Every picture you see of views was taken from the deck! The Fortress provides a perfect environment for an unforgettable family vacation which you'll treasure forever. Our valued guests hate to leave and look forward to returning.

This ultimate mountain getaway sits high atop a hill on the western slope of Pike's Peak, providing unobstructed views of the magnificent Sangre de Cristos mountain range. And you can even see the visitor center atop Pikes Peak looking east from the deck.

Only a scenic 2 hour drive from Denver (1 from Colorado Springs). This mountain chalet style home consists of 2180 SF on 3 levels with floor to ceiling south facing windows, providing amazing light on the views during sunsets. Great room features ample seating , electric simulated fireplace, dining area and modern, fully stocked kitchen + 2 full bathrooms.

The Fortress includes all the comforts of home, including WiFi. There's an HD flat panel TV in the great room and 55" HD TV with a soundbar in the lower level rec room both offering DISH TV's Top 120 stations and local stations from Colorado Springs and DVR capability plus Netflix! The large loft bedroom has a comfy king bed with full bathroom/shower and a walk in closet. Two bedrooms on the main level each offer queen beds and share a full bath. For the lower level family room, we can make available a self inflating queen mattress and up to 4 cot style memory foam twin beds, all with bedding provided, to accommodate larger groups.

Lower level family room with direct access to spacious walk-out concrete patio and large hot tub/spa. Send the kids down here for their own big screen HDTV and a small pool table and foosball.

The wrap around 600 sq ft deck includes gas barbecue and comfortable options for dining or just sitting and taking in the view. Tastefully decorated throughout, carpet, tile and hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings. Very romantic get away for two or perfect for a family reunion of up to 8.

Short drives to golf, rafting, great hiking and many great attractions like the Pikes Peak Highway, Royal Gorge Bridge, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds, wildlife sanctuaries, and of course the center of Cripple Creek is only 7 miles away. Guides to all attractions available on property and booked guests receive info on whatever they request and expert suggestions.

Where you’ll be

Cripple Creek, Colorado, United States

One of many amazing features is that you can see the Visitor Center on top of Pikes Peak from the house. There is only one other house close by and that is a full time residence owned by a lovely retired couple who are always helpful and glad to meet new friends. Their home does not hurt the fantastic views in any way.

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 The Strip, but I hardly ever go there. There are many cool and beautiful places to hang out around Vegas.

I have 2 rescue dogs, Buddy & Gracie who keep me constantly entertained.
I strongly believe that being considerate and civil to each other personally is the most important element in peaceful co-existence. In regards to business, being fair, responsible, and keeping your word is my mantra. If you don't agree with that, please don't consider being a guest. If you are of the same mind, I'd be happy to be your host..
