There is a big clearing in the front of the house where you can see a lot of wildlife mostly deer, squirrels, bunnies, birds. One guest saw a site of a bear in the night. Bears are mostly shy. We recommend to keep a car panic button handy to scare them if you come home late at night. We have never seen a bear there for the last 7 years. But it never hurts to be careful. The views are beautiful, the setting is peaceful, location is awesome: only 5 miles to Woodland Park and 8 miles to historic Manitou Springs. Come enjoy our Cascade Retreat!+ More
