This place is everything it says and more. The pictures do not do this place justice. The views alone are worth the trip. We arrived right after Christmas and everything was snow covered. The house was stocked with everything we needed from toilet paper to linens. The temperature dropped to -9 degrees and the house remained cozy. Internet worked great and the game room was a wonderful plus.The roads were well maintained even when it snowed 6 inches one day. Can't say enough about this property. Would love to come back in the spring.
Wonderful and relaxing stay

This property was fantastic! My dad and I stayed for three nights at the Mountain Fortress while on a father-son fishing trip, and both agreed that three days was not nearly long enough! The views were breathtaking, the solitude and beautiful surroundings were incredibly peaceful, and the amenities of the Mountain Fortress made our stay extremely comfortable. After each day of fishing, we took full advantage of the hot tub and enjoyed a drink on the deck.
We have already begun to discuss a return trip to Cripple Creek and the Mountain Fortress.

The views are amazing from all around right in front of Pikes peak. The Chalet was clean and spacious. We took our perfect Christmas picture from the deck. The kids loved the lower level with Roku player and air hockey while my wife and I enjoyed the hot tub while only 15 degrees outside. We loved hiking around the area and we even found a snow sled a read for the boys. Totally private in the property. It was only 15 minutes from Cripple Creek which is a small super cool town with Casinos all over. Even with all the snow we got, our Front wheel drive SUV made it up to the property without chains. We highly recommend this property to everyone.

Interaction with GuestsI will be reachable on my cellphone from 9a - 6p every day and will be checking messages most times. I have a location manager should we need to come to the unit for any reason that may arise. Any reasonable requests will be addressed at the earliest possible time. Getting AroundThere is very limited taxi service in the area. Plan on using your own vehicle at all times. Other Things to NoteThe property is located at approximately 9000 feet above sea level. If you have a sensitivity to high altitude or respiratory issues, this is not the place for you. The last 2 miles to the property are on well maintained dirt roads, during the time of year when snow is possible (Nov - April), a 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must. The public roads are regularly plowed as needed. I have a snow removal service in place for the parking areas immediately adjacent as well as the private access drive. Please note there are no refunds due to weather or travel issues outside of the stated cancellation policy, but I am glad to offer available similar replacement dates. Note that only 1 guest has had to cancel due to weather in the last 4 years, and it turns out they could have easily made it :).
