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.
