July 20, 2022

This is super cute! Love the setting for it! This cabin goes by two names, Hilo and the Peggy Hill Cabin. The cabin was built in 1932. It is located on .25 acres in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The cabin features a front porch, wood burning stove and an eat in kitchen. There is not a bathroom in the cabin, but there is an outhouse. That might be a deal breaker for me. The cabin is situated in Pike National Forest. Two bedrooms and 755 square feet. $189,000 New price: $169,000 New price: $140,000
