Colorado Honeymoon Tips
Take it easy the first day to help adjust to the altitude. The altitude in Colorado is higher than in most other parts of the country. The thinner air can affect your stamina and breathing so give your body time to adjust.
Book your cabin early! Colorado is a popular tourist destination, and our cabins are in high demand, so it’s important to book yours early to guarantee you get the cabin and days you want, especially if you’re traveling during peak season.
Pack layers to adjust to the changing weather. The weather in Colorado can change quickly, so it’s important to pack for all types of weather. This means packing a jacket, hat, or hoodie, even if you are visiting during the summer.
Bring plenty of moisturizer for the dry climate. The average humidity in Colorado is much lower than the national average. Prepare for this change in humidity by bringing moisturizer to keep your skin and lips from drying out, itching, and even cracking.
Prepare for the sun. The sun in Colorado is very strong. No matter which season, prepare for the sun with sunscreen, sunglasses, and lip balm. Sunburn still happens, even if it’s cooler than you are used to.
Relax and enjoy yourselves. Most importantly, relax and enjoy yourselves. Romantic vacations are about reconnecting and spending time alone with the one you love, so take some time to sit back and enjoy each other’s company.

He wrote in his journal that the mountain was “the most magnificent sight I ever beheld”.

While the Cliff Dwellings have been moved here from their original location for preservation purposes, the scenic views are still spectacular at Manitou Cliff Dwellings, and the museum is great for those interested in learning more about the history of the people and area.

Why visit Colorado Springs?

Cabin lodging and comfortably glamping with a cross-country adventure? Planning a sight-seeing extravaganza through the American West? Whatever your adventure may be, a road trip checklist can be helpful for planning all the details, big and small, of your big adventure for summer vacation 2021.
We’ve decided to kick off Vacation Planning 2021 with a helpful guide to get you started in preparing for your 2021 road trip. Looking for a good route or scenic destination? Of course, we’re partial to Colorful Colorado. After all, our location in Cascade, Colorado offers you scenic photo opportunities with Garden of the Gods, spacious open land, and plenty of sight-seeing attractions. There’s a reason people travel here from around the world!
Before You Go
Make sure your car is in tip-top shape. A regular tune-up, oil change, and all that maintenance stuff should be done right before you hit the road. I mean, breaking down on the side of the road would be an adventure in itself, but it’s probably not the one that you had planned on.
Housekeeping. Make a list of all things, big and small, that you need to do to ensure your house is in ideal condition to be left for the duration of your trip. This may mean more than a thorough cleaning and tidy. You’ll want to remember houseplants and electronics, utilities, and other details to make sure you can vacation worry-free about what you left behind. (Did you know you can get ‘cakes’ to put in your fish tank to feed your fish for a few days?)
Pack your bags–and your apps. Pack essentials (and don’t forget the little but important things, like chargers and electronics accessories!), and also be sure you have loaded your phone and devices with all the apps you’ll need for traveling: Google Maps, entertainment apps (with account info), and update your most frequently used apps and info so your mobile devices can be especially helpful while traveling.
While You Roll
Plan your playlists–and podcasts–ahead of time! Maybe have one of your crew be the designated “media person” so there isn’t squabbling over who gets to man the controls. We’ve all been there: you want to listen to anything but The Wiggles–and that’s all the smart list wants to play. Trust us, planning ahead is worth it.
Plan for the stops and the views, and make a plan for some must-sees. You’d hate to drive past a can’t-miss hidden gem!
Snack smart. While sometimes a road trip makes a great excuse to guzzle a gas station slushy and a bag of chips with some spicy beef jerky on the side–it may not make for the best habit the whole trip! Plan to bring protein bars, water bottles, fruits and veggies to feel your best by the time you reach your destination.
Once You Get There
Don’t be afraid to ask the locals for their recommendations! This is how you’ll find the best places, because Google doesn’t always know about that delicious, hole-in-the-wall pizza restaurant that just might change your life.
Make reservations ahead of time for restaurants, attractions, and events. (Trust us, you don’t want a ticketing conflict to keep you from experiencing the Terror-dactyl at Cave of the Winds!)
Be sure to take a ton of pictures because you’ll have a lot of reasons for looking back and smiling.
Cabin Lodging in Colorado
Finding rustic cabin lodging in the great West is especially neat when you consider all the history you’ll be rooted in as a visitor to our historic state. With breathtaking views, amazing local food, and a culture built on adventure and tenacity, a Colorado vacation is bound to bring excitement and wonder to your explorations.
Families who stay with us at Ramona Cottage or Zeb’s Cabin often comment on the relaxing wooded area that is still somehow so close to so much. There is no roaring traffic–just the soft roar of a waterfall if you take the short hike up a ways. You’ll find no glaring street lamps–just the incredible shine of the moon. You won’t be dealing with packed parking lots or long wait lines. Instead, you’ll find narrow, unpaved roads and quaint shops owned by friendly locals.
Road Trip the West!
So where will your adventure take you? To Yellowstone or Yosemite? The Grand Canyon or Pikes Peak? We’d love to hear from you what your travel plans will be! And if you’re looking for family-friendly or perfectly romantic private cabin lodging, we’re here all year round. Find us on Instagram and tag us in your best vacation photos!

Cabin life is all about taking time to enjoy the good things, to slow down and indulge, and that’s why we’re sharing cabin recipes on the blog! Discover more cabin recipes from Cascade Escapes to keep your kitchen cozy and your bellies happy.
On Sunday, March 14, 2021, we celebrated Pi Day! Every year on 3.14 we bake up something delicious for this official-unofficial-holiday and we thought we’d share a blue ribbon special on the blog. This cherry pie recipe became locally famous when it won first place in the Manitou Spring Pie Contest! So yeah, we’d say it’s a pretty solid choice.
Cherry Pie Fit for Cabin Life
Cherry pie is a well-loved favorite, and for good reason. You’ll love this award-winning cherry pie recipe because the flaky moist crust is especially rich with some added depth due to the addition of milk.
PRO-TIP: Simplify your pie crust process by mixing with a fork and forming directly into the pie pan.
Rather than canned cherries, this cherry pie filling from scratch is made rich and unique with grenadine syrup and almond extract. Be sure to find quality tart cherries, as these tart cherries are the key ingredient in developing the cherry flavor in this pie filling.
If you’re bringing home a slice of cabin life with this cherry pie recipe, might we recommend a scoop of homestyle vanilla ice cream to make your plate complete!
An American Tradition
American pie has been a tradition since before America was America! But who made Pi Day, well, Pi Day?! According to history.com (https://www.history.com/news/where-did-pi-day-come-from) it was actually a logical coincidence because March 14th is numerically represented as 3.14, which is the mathematical phenomenon of pi–and it is also Albert Einstein’s birthday. Who could dream up a more perfect holiday?!
Since this Pi Day tradition picks up popularity every year, we wanted to share our recipe in honor of a terrific excuse to eat some pie. This year we chose cherry because, as your local innkeepers in Cascade, Colorado, we have a special claim to fame with this blue ribbon recipe.
Want to learn more about Manitou Springs and the Manitou Spring Pie Contest? Check out this link! And if you’re looking for unique local things to do in Colorado, we highly recommend the artful community of Manitou, and the quaint local events and traditions of our mountain towns. (Coffin Race and Fruitcake Toss, anyone?)
The 2020 Pie Contest was canceled, but we are so hopeful for a strong return in 2021!

Cabin honeymoon couples make us so incredibly happy! We hope to share more stories like Emily and Damian’s, so please shoot us a message if you’ve stayed with us and would like to be featured on the blog.
Meet Emily and Damian: a sweet couple who chose us for their cabin honeymoon in November 2020. We love featuring guest stories here on the Cozy Cabin blog, and it’s always heartwarming to hear how Cascade Escapes gets to be a part of the romance from time to time.
Cabin Honeymoon in a Pandemic
This sweet couple chose our Colorado cabins because it provided the perfect pandemic solution to honeymooning during COVID-19! Plus, our neck of the woods is an easy driving distance from most parts of the Midwest and West, making us a great stop along the map for adventurers on a road trip. Emily shares, “ We wanted somewhere […] to enjoy our time together without any obligations or anyone else around.”
The private seclusion of Ramona’s Cottage is perfect for that—but it also has a few neat things to do, too—which was perfect for Emily and Damian, who also hoped for a place that would have a few things to do nearby, but nothing that felt overwhelming or made them feel like they absolutely had to do.
We agree, Emily and Damian, flexible options on what your day will bring is always a plus!
We love getting to know our cabin couples, and Emily was kind enough to share her cabin honeymoon story for a blog feature! It’s always fun to share these cabin honeymoon stories and shine a spotlight on couples and families who stay with us!
Before the Cabin Honeymoon: How they Met
Emily and Damian met just over six years ago during college—and the rest is history. Damian likes to tell the story, she turned me down for our first date, but Emily actually favors the story about how her now-husband proposed.
During the hectic times of college life during a pandemic, their time together had been extremely limited and so the strain of distance had been a heavy factor. After a lot of time apart, they finally squeezed in a date together and Emily had a sneaking suspicion Damian would propose. But why do you think that? Her friend asked, and Emily admitted she honestly had no good reason to suspect he would propose—other than what her heart was telling her.
Their first date after this gap in their time together as a couple was a throwback to the location of their very first date. She felt those nervous flutters of anticipation all through the meal—but still no proposal. Damian asked , “Do you want to go to the top of the world?”
“I actually kind of had to use the restroom,” Emily admits, “but I was hopeful [that he’d propose], so I said sure.”
Hope, Patience, and a Pandemic Wedding
And her hopeful persistence paid off—as the sunset dwindled and the last bit of light gave way to a gentle twilight, Damian proposed. Emily, of course, said yes—and we’re so glad they did!
When couples book their private cabin with us, we take pride in knowing we are the best in the West. Our Colorado cabins offer a private hot tub, a fully-equipped kitchen, and spacious but cozy private quarters that allow couples to stretch out, cuddle up, and let go of life for a quiet getaway.
Nearby dining includes local favorite, Wines of Colorado, and plenty of other fine dining, breweries, and local eateries in downtown Colorado Springs and nearby Woodland Park. Planning a wedding trip or anniversary is easy to do when you’ve got such a scenic and historic spot to explore and enjoy.
Cabin Honeymoon: Perfect Solution for COVID-Times
Emily and Damian found their perfect honeymoon solution for pandemic living—and we are so happy to offer a safe and private option for vacationing during COVID.
As newly-weds, the sweet couple tells us their couples’ goals include the motto, “live long and prosper.” They hope to travel, raise a family at some point, and enjoy their chosen careers as mechanical engineers while living a life they love together.
Cheers to that!
We wish you both the very best in life ahead, and we hope you’ll travel back to the cottage from time to time.

Check out the sweet details, including two separate baths. One boasts a walk-in shower and spacious second bathroom and artisan sink. And the master bath has been renovated to modern comforts, but the original clawfoot tub remains–don’t miss out on this beautiful antique detail! This original antique feature really shows the original character and immaculate care taken to preserve the magic of Ramona’s history.
If you stay with us, be sure to check out the tiny details that remain a testament to the antique craftsmanship of the early 20th century. The Ramona Cottage was built in 1917, and much of the original details remain intact. The hardwood floors, glass and window details, and more have been preserved where possible. To ensure comfort and safety, of course, updates and renovations have also made this sweet cabin a comfortable and cozy retreat with all the modern comforts. It’s a wonderful mix of history and modern comfort, so you’ll feel you’re getting the best of both worlds.
