Do some peak-bagging from your own backyard at La Mancha Retreat, a
magnificent 6,438 sq. ft. custom, log-built estate/lodge residence on 11 acres set against a backdrop of the largest concentration of 14,000 foot peaks in the nation near Buena Vista, CO.
• La Mancha is a sporting paradise, bordered on two sides by the million acre-plus San Isabel National Forest, where one can embark upon hikes, horseback rides, and hunts into the Collegiate Peaks Range directly from your property.
• The Arkansas River and its thrilling whitewater and gold medal trout fishing is mere minutes away, downhill skiing at Copper Mtn, Monarch and Ski Cooper is less than a hour drive, and the restaurants, shopping, and private jet airport at burgeoning Buena Vista are only a twenty minute drive.
• Three Elk Creek tumbles down along side La Mancha and ponderosa pines tower overhead, framing awe-inspiring views of the Buffalo Peaks from the luxurious residence’s expansive wrap-around deck and Great Room.
• La Mancha Retreat can be a great private, quiet, end-of-the-road Rocky Mountain getaway for a family or corporate retreat/meeting site.
My family of 9 adults spent 5 days at this lodge and loved it. The lodge is spacious,well equipped and exactly as presented. We loved the gurgling stream behind the home, the huge deck with the rocking chairs - and all the hummingbirds. Many activities nearby - white water rafting, horseback riding, hiking, etc.
It was great to find such a nice house in a beautiful setting that would accommodate all of us. I wouldn't hesitate to return.
What a beautiful Novemember my family had at La Mancha. This lodge has it all. I felt like the month I spent there added a year to my life. Our stay has given us many beautiful memories. Features all of God's beauty. We are looking forward to coming back. Thanks guys.
This turned out to be probably the best vacation we have ever had due in large part to this wonderful lodge. We had family come in from 4 states and we were all able to stay together at La Mancha rather than splitting into 3 smaller cabins. What a luxury. This lodge is simply awe inspiring in its setting and accommodations, we couldn't have been happier. The sleeping accommodations were excellent with wonderfully appointed rooms. We were able to cook all together in the large open well equipped kitchen and avoid the hassles of finding restaurants to fit 12 of us which was very nice. There are beautiful hikes right off the back of the property and additional mountain biking, rafting, and hiking all over the BV area. Spending mornings and evenings on the large deck with rockers was also simply perfect. We thank the owners for sharing this piece of heaven with us.
