Guestbook comments from the owner
Hey Chris.....

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!!!!!

Best so far

  • 5 of 5
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.

Amazing. Stunning view of the sky and stars. Home is simply gorgeous and they have thought of every little detail. Loved the jacuzzi tubs after a full day of skiing. Room for people to spread out and sit together. Positively a great decision. College Station, TX Gig'em Aggies

5-Star Residence at a Reasonable Price

  • 5 of 5
Me and old pals from high school had a great time at the lodge. What a beautiful home, so elegantly decorated and in a perfect location for our fishing interests. We fished all three reservoirs, Spinney, Antero and Eleven Mile, caught many large trout and a 36-inch pike! Hope to get on the calendar for next year soon. I think we left it in really good shape and appreciate all you do to make it a terrific getaway. This was a 5-star residence at a very reasonable price, beautiful inside and out, multiple comfortable spaces to enjoy, perfect for entertaining.

Fantastic Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our family, adult kids and grandkids, spent a week at this beautiful home. It has everything and more that people of all ages will enjoy; games, activities, quiet, places to ride bikes, walk and a wonderful location. It is wonderfully designed with plenty of sleeping areas and separate sitting and activity areas. Chris, the owner, could not have been more helpful, professional and responsive from beginning to end. The location is between two towns and you will be taking driving to hiking, fishing, etc. But we wanted that quiet location which was exactly what we hoped for. There are close hikes, drives and both towns offer restaurants and activities. We had a great day, only family there, at the South Park Recreation Center. Very reasonable. Many of our meals were with deer in the yard. We rarely saw a car on the road. The home felt luxurious. There is so much bedding available for all kinds of sleeping arrangements. One of our favorite things was cooking and eating meals together. Another favorite time was sitting and playing on the balcony that wraps around the house, with chairs and tables for everyone. It just could not have been more perfect. Just writing this brings great memories. I would highly recommend this home for any group. I would suggest (which I didn't do), asking Chris about the layout if bedroom arrangement matters to you. Each bedroom has unique and wonderful features, i.e. the master is on the main floor, there is a huge mother-in-law apartment that is great if you have a group of kids or a larger family that can sleep together. It worked great for us. But I could have thought it out better if I had asked. We put two of our little kids in the recliners on the main floor so they had a private play and sleep room. Lots of options. I looked all over the Southwest before settling on this home. The price is very, very fair for such a beautiful home with so much space and a great location. Thank you, Chris, for sharing your lovely mountain home!
