Description of this Cascade Vacation Rental House

Base your Colorado Christmas in the heart of historic Cascade, at the foot of the Pikes Peak Highway, a mile from the Santa's Workshop at the North Pole. Cut a tree from the National Forest or pick one from the Boy Scouts. Decorate the house and enjoy some hot cider in front of the fireplace.

From the late nineteenth through the early twentieth centuries, this comfortable Victorian served as the region's Ranger Station. Today it is rejuvenated and furnished to reflect its past as a gathering place for locals and visitors eager to hike, hunt and fish among the Pikes Peak's legendary forested slopes. Your stay at the Ranger Station will open the door to an earlier time when folks came up Ute Pass to relax among the mountain spruce and ponderosa, away from the heat of the "lowlands" and bustle of city life.

The Station's spacious kitchen welcomes you back to a real connection with great-grandma, sitting at the table over coffee or tea, chatting and keeping hands busy helping with dinner chores. The dining table invites your family to eat the old-fashioned way--together, enjoying meals with the honest hunger that fresh air and exercise bring on. Food never tasted so good, nor sleep so deep and sweet, as in the embrace of this generous old house. In the livingroom, the 100+ year-old fireplace still works, reminding us that summer is only one of Colorado’s mountain moods.

The Station is completely furnished with everything you need to be comfortable on your vacation. The kitchen is set up with refrigerator, oven-stove, microwave, dishes, flatware, toaster, etc, etc. We've tried to think of all that a good cook needs; there's a barbecue grill and picnic table outside too. Inside, you can relax with a good book or watch a movie from satellite, a DVD or VHS, or, if you must, access your email with hi-speed wireless.

At last, you're at your Colorado home-away-from-home, furnished and decorated to awaken in you that feeling described by Gonzo’s song in "The Muppet Movie":

This looks familiar, vaguely familiar,
Almost unreal, yet, it's too soon to feel yet;
So close to home, and yet so far away--
I’m going to go back there someday...
