Guest Comments: 'Dear Mr. And Mrs. Hollman, I love your cabin! The loft is SO cool! I liked the glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling, just like in my own room. We played a ton of the board games you had up there and had a lot of fun. Your family room is welcoming. I played your piano everyday. My favorite chair is the pop-a-son chair. The heating light in the bathroom is very nice when you're cold getting out of the shower. I love the swing on the front porch, it really made me relaxed. As I am writing this I’m sitting on the green glider on the back deck, I love it. Many mornings I sat with a member of my family here. You know that feeling you get when you leave somewhere you love and have a piece of your heart there, that’s how I feel right now. I love Ruby’s Retreat so much! I never thought I would miss a vacation spot this much but I truly think it’s a great place to be and I hope we return soon! Your cabin is awesome. I don’t know how I can leave!

More Guest Comments: 'Mr. Ted, Well, we made it back safe to Georgia. Sat night and Sun morning seemed so long since we flew out so late but at least we were able to be home before lunch on Sunday which was very nice. We would like to thank you again for a great time at your cabin. It seemed like 'home' to us which was very nice. Maybe one day we can visit Co. again. We have a 3 year old and I would love to take him to see the mountains and snow. I am sending you a picture that we took on our trip. Thanks again..”

Even More Guest Comments: “I had a relaxing and blessed weekend – I will remember this as a very special birthday! Loved sitting outside and listening to the wind in the pines, good for praying and mediating. Thanks and God bless you all.”

“What a lovely place, full of light and fresh mountain air, so clean and welcoming and cozy. A large bull elk (5 pointer) wandered through the back and around to the front yard, stopping to pose for some wonderful photos.”

“Our family had a great week at Ruby’s. Having grown up in the Ft. Collins/Boulder area, we always took the mountains for granted. After living the past three years in southern France, the amazing beauty of this area is so much more evident. Thanks for helping us to re-discover this.”

Ruby's Retreat is in the quaint little town of Allenspark which sits at the national park's southeast corner, along the breathtaking Peak-to-Peak Highway. The highways itself is 55 miles of curves and scenery rivaling the postcards from Estes Park, 12 miles to the North. Established in 1918, this scenic town shows the way to some of Colorado's most famous and beautiful areas. Chief among these is the craggy, 14,255-foot Longs Peak, as well as Rocky Mountain National Park, host to alpine vistas, glacial basins and 3 million visitors annually. In addition to visiting Rocky Mountain National Park, visitors enjoy horseback riding at many nearby stables. Fishing during summer months, and cross-country skiing in the winter makes the town an attractive year-round destination. While peak tourist season occurs during the summer months, this town's hiking trails, located at an altitude of 8,521 feet, provide wonderful views of the area!
