Twin Pines, recognized in the book “The Top 100 Most Beautiful Rustic Vacations” is located deep in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Off-the-grid, yet just 15 minutes from Colorado Springs urban life, Twin Pines is a charming, enchanting and historic log cabin.
Built in the 1890’s on the site of a stage coach rest stop on Old Stage Road, the cabin is an historical landmark on Cheyenne Mountain. Twin Pines is a fusion of 20th century simplicity with 21st century convenience. Step onto the flagstone deck and find yourself amid the sweet, refreshing fragrance of towering pines, setting the stage for conversation and laughter while roasting marshmallows around the firepit. Or, step inside and enjoy the 3 bedroom, two bath, cozy living quarters that sleeps 5 comfortably and comes equipped with today’s technology; internet, cell phone service (via WiFi) and Smart TV. While compact, the galley kitchen has all the conveniences of home. In it you will find a full-size refrigerator, washer and dryer, range, dishwasher and garbage disposal. Since this is an off-the-grid location in a water conservation area, you will be participating in cabin water management with the century old spring water system.
Over a century ago, the stagecoach rest stop was a respite for weary travelers and pleasure seekers. Today, Twin Pines continues to welcome visitors from around the world who seek seclusion and relaxation in the Rocky Mountains.
Twin Pines is located on the Western Slope of Cheyenne Mountain’s Old Stage Road at an elevation of 7,016 ft. No other cabin can be seen from Twin Pines. Although it is located deep in the heart of the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Twin Pines is only 20 minutes from the Broadmoor Hotel, shopping and many other attractions. During the 15 minute drive on Old Stage Road to and from Twin Pines, guests will see some of Colorado’s most spectacular landscape including Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods. At night, the Colorado Springs skyline is breathtaking.
