Significant time and funds invested to build one unique & awe-inspiring mountain home in Colorado. Hope you like it!..
Christopher purchased this lodge in 2007
Enjoyed the ambience, views, and location.
Just a fantastic mountain home and base camp, rally point at the foot of dozens of great things to do in all directions right around you.
We had a MAGNIFICENT week! We had three hikes .... Browns creek falls, Mohawk lake and mount yale. Did the aerial adventure course in buena vista, visited St. Elmo, splashed in the mount Princeton hot springs and did a full day of rafting in the Gorge. Don't think we could have packed anymore in.... Lol. Thanks so much for helping me find the other house. We ended up with 12 people at each house and they loved both homes. Thanks again for all your help and some fantastic memories!!!!!
We stayed in this cabin for an ice fishing trip. We had 9 kids with us. The cabin was great. So much for the kids to do. We had a great time. The kids asked if we could do it every year. Chris was very friendly and responded quickly to any questions. We plan to return.
I stayed in this cabin with my daughters and some friends for a girl's getaway. It was amazing! The house has everything you could possibly need. It is about an hour from Breckenridge, but the drive was not bad and the towns in between were worth exploring. We had a great time and would love to come back!
This was our second time at the lodge and once again it exceeded our expectations. We had a rocky year and REALLY needed the family get away to close out 2014. Chris is ALWAYS fabulous to work with and answers all of our questions and so many we never even need to ask. There was even more to do here than the last time we visited in the summer. I was worried with 2 little ones under 5 but they had a blast! We all learned how to play chess and had an ongoing family Foosball tournament the 8 days we were there. The weather was perfect for playing outside occasionally and enjoying a nice fire and hot chocolate in between snow falls. We couldn't think of one thing we needed that we didn't have. We ventured out to Buena Vista and Breckenridge only 2 days of our trip and really had a great time every single day. This is quickly becoming our family home away from home. Thanks so much Christopher!!
A group of us wanted to find somewhere that we could all go that met a wide age range of entertainment possibilities. This far exceeded our expectations!!! Chris, the owner, was so helpful and attentive throughout the whole process. We had people ranging from 1-50 years in age, one teenager, and everyone had a wonderful experience! We went fishing, dirt biking, ATVing, swimming at the hot springs, and hiking!!!! The kitchen was spectacular, we had the opportunity to enjoying an amazing double rainbow while we made dinner Saturday night and it was truly memorable for everyone! Thank you for sharing your home, we will be back!!!
Loved your home! The house was very spacious for all adults and teenagers. Location was great. We packed alot into our week visit and loved it. We will be back, maybe during the winter next time.
My family and friends total of 10 people stayed for 7 days very comfortable in this lodge. More like someones home than a rental place, excellent place and scenery. the lodge had everything you would want at your own house. Cant say enough about it best place and most relaxing i have had so far. We toured aspen, breackinridge, salida, pikes peak, cripple creek and rafted the arkinsas river all withing short drives. We had six teens that loved the cabin as much as the trip itself more than enough to do. Home decor and supplies was the best. Thanks for a great relaxing trip.
