Perfect Location to host a Small Wedding ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We rented the lodge along with the cabin and reception barn for our small wedding. We had around 35 people in attendance with the majority staying in either the cabin or reception for the extended weekend. It was the perfect spot to host an intimate wedding with so many extras included. We went hiking, saw wildlife, went hot tubbing, and played yard and bored games throughout the weekend. Don and Toni were extremely accommodating and had everything you needed. Although the weather was unpredictable for our May wedding, everyone worked together well to make it work. I loved this place as well as everyone that enjoyed the weekend with us. We hope to go back in five years with the same group of people to relive this perfect weekend. Highly Recommended! - May 2016
Just as I expected: secluded and rustic ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
With a 60 degree grade hill, facing north you definitely need a 4 wheel drive to reach the cabin in winter. It was everything I wanted and expected to give my family a winter wonderland experience for the Christmas holdays. Living in Texas we would have not have had this experience. The Cabin is secluded and very rustic, with beautiful traditional furnishings. The cabin has an openess were guests can have privacy but also be in the moment with all other guests. If you're stay is long enough and experience "cabin fever" Breckenridge is a beautuful, 1 hour drive away. Should incur issues of any kind (as life does happen ) Don & Toni will go above and beyond to fix it. We had an awesome Christmas....my son's photos and videos show how much fun we had. I wish I could post them here. - December 21, 2016
Thanks so much for your hospitality! Your home is wonderful and all of us had a great time staying there and enjoying time with each other. The horseshoe pits got a work out, as did the trails. We all enjoyed playing a lot of cards, fishing, and sightseeing. If you don’t already have it on the list of suggested restaurants, you should add McGinty’s in Divide. Great food and the service was top notch! - July 25, 2014 - Shawnee, KS
Thank you both for an amazing week. We had a wonderful wedding and couldn’t have asked for more. All of our guests were raving about the ceremony and the reception. We couldn’t have asked for better weather! Overall the venue was perfect for a low key, casual wedding which is exactly what we were looking for. You have a very beautiful property. We both look forward to returning either alone or with family and friends. McHenrys, 6/29/2014
Thank you so much for providing the perfect setting for our wedding/family gathering. It was truly everything I could have asked for in a venue: beautiful, intimate, and relaxing. The familes thoguth the house and property were absolutely stunning. We appreciate your hospitality and Don’s quirky sense of humor. We hope to be back in the future and wish you the best as you become a nationally known wedding venue. Usserys, Colorado Springs, CO, 7/6/2014
TihsreeD must have good karma. We were more than comfortable here, we were happy! We love the scale for the house the Persian carpets and the comfortable beds. Bot more than that, we loved watching the full moon rise over Pikes Peak, the sunny days, the evening outside by the fireplace, the hummingbirds and the fox, the wildflowers, the swings by the path, and the lovely breeze. Thank you for all the hard work and clever ideas you put into this place. We loved it here. – Wickershams, St. Louis, MO, 7/10/2014
We had an absolutely fantastic time at TihsreeD. What a gorgeous place and what a wonderful experience! We would definitely recommend your lodge to everyone! Thanks so much and we hope to return again someday. – Hylok Family, LaVista, NE, 12/2013
I just wanted to thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful lodge. It was everything we hoped for. We brought our family down to spend Christmas in the mountains and they all had an amazing time. Many memories were made this week. – The Downs Family, 12/29/2013
The Lane family thanks you for the great stay. We enjoyed it SO much. Views were incredible, fireplaces were wonderful. We are a family of cooks so we spent a lot of time in the kitchen – great layout! Lane Family, 1/4/2014
The Jensens from Nebraska had another great week at TihsreeD. You always have everything so nicely prepared for us. Best wishes in the New Year. 1/13/2013
TihsreeD is a refuge. The views, the quiet, the personality of the property are the perfect prescription for a weary soul, or 15! Don – you have found your calling. You are filled with knowledge and have a heart to serve. Thank you for opening your home and hear for our crew! From plowing the road to allowing our city vehicles to pass to stacking our wood pile like a little wood elf. Toni- your serenity lingers in the rooms of the home and seems to enter before one enters. Your decorative touch makes the atmosphere a home. You have been blessed and it is obvious that you bless others. Thanks again for allowing our invasion of your piece of heaven! We will forever have a place in our hearts carved out for Tishreed. – Koenings, Haslet, TX, 3/12/2014
This place has been nothing short of amazing. The pinnical of this trip for me was being able to walk the property and enjoy nature. What ya’ll have done here is incredible and I will most certainly be returning. Thank you so much for having us. This trip was ‘high fives and happiness’ – T. Hikles, 3/22/2014
We can’t believe we fit 19 girls into this house with no ‘bathroom issues’!! That means this was the perfect house for our Mom’s Retreat. We enjoyed the comfy atmosphere and great space. We really enjoyed all the pleasure of this house and it was a great escape into the mountains to get closer to God. We look forward to next year… can’t wait for the reception barn to be finished. – Mom’s Connect, Colorado Springs, CO, 4/13/2014
We had such a wonderful time during our week here. We so often make plans for daily excursions while on vacation, but we took two days to just visit and enjoy being at TihsreeD. It is such a beautiful home in an amazing location. Loved it and hope to make it back someday. Barb, Michael, Rowan and Keir, Tulsa, OK, 6/6/2014
The Hinton Clan from Kansas brought four daughters, their parents and families to TihsreeD from Cincinnati, Ohio, Atlanta, GA and Olathe, KS. We enjoyed our time at your beautiful cabin in Colorado! All 18 of us managed an entire week together and created wonderful memories. Thanks for your hospitality.
Thank you so much for opening up your cabin for us! TihsreeD is absolutely breathtaking! We enjoyed our stay so much that we are already planning our next stay. Horseback riding through the garden of the Gods was wonderful, but your can’t beat whitewater rafting down Brown’s Canyon or the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Those were our favorite activities. We also enjoyed learning about the Utes and seeing the sacred trees on your property! Amazing! – Branson, MO, 6/20/2014
From Clay: October 20, 2013:
Never before have I seen such beautiful sights! Tihsreed is truly a wonderland... Waking up to snowdrifts in the morning with a cold chill to revive the soul is simply bliss. Above all, my most treasured memory will be the amazing view of Pike's Peak from almost every area of the property.
To be honest I cannot think of a legitimate complaint, but for the sake of feedback, I would have to say an investment in a newer better gas grill would be good.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay, at a very reasonable price. It was truly an amazing experience. P.S. The house is breathtaking and still cozy!
From Homeaway Vacation Rental Site, February 29, 2012: We had a wonderful time at our Great Girl Getaway (GGG) weekend as Tihsreed Lodge! Don Moore is a gracious host and even helped us unload our weekend “gear”. Tihsreed is beautiful and spacious. There was plenty of room for us to laugh, dance, cook and play games! We enjoyed the hot tub and outdoor fireplace. The mountain setting is beautiful and peaceful. We didn’t want to leave! We hope to make Tihsreed our permanent location for our annual GGG weekend! Thank you, Don!
From Homeaway Vacation Rental Site, October 24, 2011: It is more than I could have wished for! We were looking for a week's worth of solitude and luxury and we got both at Tihsreed! The home is situated on a hill with a wonderful view of the back side of Pike's Peak. No neighbors in sight, the only sounds we heard were coyote's singing at night, birds in the day and chirps of two friendly chipmunks that ran about the rocks near the hot tub. The home is expansive and beautiful. An outdoor fireplace, an indoor fireplace and a wood stove provide a nice setting to enjoy the bottle of wine that Don leaves for his guests. We found a nice outcrop of rocks to enjoy lunch by on his 50 acres of wooded land. The home itself is modern and huge. We had plenty of space to roam inside and even play some pinball downstairs. There is a lot to do within 30 minutes drive but you also will feel miles away when staying at the home itself. Lot's of frontier type historical sites nearby. McGinty's in nearby Divide has the most awesome woodfire Pizza and it is cheap! Divide also has groceries if you want to do your own cooking and has cheap gas. Pike's peak is a must do but be prepared for cold weather at the summit. Lot's of fun activities all around Florissant. The home also provides great entertainment including whole house sound system to enjoy some Bach in front of the fireplace with all the lights off and a glass of wine to enjoy. You will find Don to be one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He is a fun guy to talk with but was also cognizant of my wish to enjoy a week's worth of being alone with my wife. He was very attentive and yet non-intrusive. He will make you feel very welcomed and cared for. All-in-all, I can guarantee you will be very happy that you chose to stay at Tihsreed. One bit of advice...this is a true plus for folks like me who have a hard time not bringing work on vacation...there is no internet onsite...so leave the stupid computer at home and truly relax! A bit of hot chocolate soaking in the hot tub looking up at the clearest night skies anywhere will make you glad you didn't bring work along. Relax and let Don take great care of you!
From Anne, November 21, 2011 Our family had a wonderful and memorable vacation at Tihsreed. The home is beautiful, very clean, spacious and well appointed. Our family of seven was extremely pleased with the seclusion and privacy the home offers. We will return. Don, you are the best!
From Jason, November 8, 2011: The Thompson Family can hardly wait for next summer to come out to Colorado and stay at your marvelous property!
From Stephen, October 24, 2011: I wanted to thank you for renting us your beautiful home for the weekend. We had a great time and were very impressed by the accommodations.
From Mike, October 22, 2011: I wanted to publicly thank you for a most relaxing vacation. Your home is truly spectacular and we both felt very well taken care of. It was truly one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever enjoyed. To those looking for a "get away from it all" experience...you wont be disappointed. Some hot chocolate in the jacuzzi looking up at a brilliant night sky, while listening to the coyotes or inside enjoying a glass of wine by the fireplace, Tihsreed is a place to insulate yourself from stress. We truly had a wonderful week in Florissant.
