Our family of 5 rented the T-Birds Lodge just last week after spending the first 4 days of our vacation in a one room motel. Upon arrival, it was incredible. Once you open the front door, you see the Sangre de Cristo mountains out the back.The house was clean and ready for us to unpack.The kids ran throughout the house calling "dibs" on their rooms. Each room was so cool, we didn't have any fights!
My husband & I called "dibs" on the master suite. The master suite has a tall king-sized bed that he had to help me get in to! There is a corner fireplace (however, it wasn't turned on for use). There's a balcony off the master suite with chairs and there's a master bath with a 2 person jacuzzi tub and a glass-enclosed walk in shower.
Off of the master suite is a loft with incredible views of the mountains.
Back down on the main level is a great room with furniture (that if I could have fit it in the van, it wouldn't be there anymore!) that is so comfortable and views that I couldn't get enough of. There's a couch and 2 chairs and a corner fireplace (again - not turned on). Behind the couch is a round table with 5 chairs. Just off of the great room is an enclosed sun room with a dining room table and chairs to seat 10 comfortably.
The kitchen is a little on the small side; but, it has everything you need to cook anything you want. (I did bring my griddle for pancakes though)
Downstairs is a walk-out basement with a playstation 3, 2 tv's, dvd player, vcr, and a family favorite (cocktail arcade table--> again, if it could have fit in the van...!) There's also a pool table and an elliptical. Just off this great room is a full bath (again with a jacuzzi tub) and 2 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a window...the other does not. Off the basement is a porch with a gas grill, small table with 4 chairs and a bench. There is a hot tub - but, it isn't available for use.
Now, back upstairs..if you turn right after you get in the front door, there's a full bath and a laundry room. Then, go on down the hall and you have a guest suite. Up the stairs is a huge room with incredible views, king size bed, tv, 2 leather chairs, 2 bunk beds, a full bath, mini fridge and microwave.
The deck just outside the main part of the house has 6 lounge chairs (cushions in the garage).
The main thing I have to tell you is how grand the house was and how INCREDIBLE the owners are! They worked so hard to make this dream vacation work for us! Thank you so much!
