Bailey House Rental Photos and Description

3BR, 2 1/2 Baths, sleeps 8-10, spa tub, hot tub , 7.4 acres - unobstructed views

At the end of a 2 mile gravel mountain road, custom built, full view of mountains and river valley, private. This 2010 house has nothing behind it except mountains and forest. Hike down the property to the Pike National Forest and to the North Fork of the South Platte River below. There is mountain hiking on the property and all around with fishing, hunting, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing nearby. There are only four other houses at the end of this road. This property does not just have views--it is in the 360 degree view. You are a part of the scenery. With 7.4 acres touching the Pike National Forest just go out the back door and hike. This property welcomes writers, artists, lovers, hikers, anglers, and all those who want a special retreat away from life's stresses and the hustle-bustle of city life. Better hurry, we are BOOKING UP FAST for the whole year.


Retreat: If you want to get away from Denver for a long weekend, or stay for a month as you write a novel, Big Rock Mountain House welcomes you to a brand new, modern, gorgeous mountain home that is casual, comfortable and custom designed to be a contemporary cabin experience. You can hike on the property for thirty minutes to the National Forest and beyond and not see another human. You will be surrounded by nature, tall pines, firs, wild large and small animals. You can hear the sound of water rushing from the rapids of the North Fork of the South Platte River far below you, or the wind rustling through the forest. Go to the bottom of the property, look up, and see that you are literally on a BIG ROCK. Sit in the 8 person spa under the stars. Take a bath in the 6 foot 7 jet spa for two located in the master bath, look out the window and have a glass of wine. Sit on the balcony and look at the 180 degree mountain views. Rock on the back patio in huge log rockers or relax on a lounger.

Hikers and Anglers Welcome: The house overlooks The Lost Creek Wilderness. Hike the property--on one side, climb down the rock outcrop. On the other side, climb through a dense alpine forest to the plateau below overlooking the river valley and continue descending to the river. There are many other places to hike. Hike to South Twin Cone Peaks, Platte Peak, Payne Benchmark. Take a drive and go to Kenosha Pass, Windy Peak, The Castle, The Taryall Mountains, Puma Peak, or Mount Evans Wilderness to name a few. Anglers can fish in the river below but access is from Bailey and must be on public land. Or you can go to Pine, Shawnee, Boxwood Gulch, Blue River, Long Meadow, Chatfield Reservoir or many other fishing holes near and far. For details, check with The Knotty Pine in Bailey.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Must be at least 25 years old to rent or have a responsible party willing to assume financial responsibility. A copy of a drivers license or passport or other government ID is needed.

This is a NON-SMOKING property without exception. No open fires on the property. No glass or bottles (beer or wine bottles) or any other breakable glasswear outside. Polycarbonate or non-breakable containers are provided. No foodstuff should be left outside unattended at any time including trash so as not to attract wild animals. No guns, hunting, pellets, paint balls or shooting anything on the property. No golfing on the property.

If you are caught smoking you will forfeit your deposit and any remaining days at the property without refund and you will be asked to leave. Any open fires, doing anything that may set a fire, or shooting of firearms on or near the property will lead to the local sheriff being called and you may be arrested, fined, asked to leave without refund or all of the above. No exceptions.

There is a local newspaper 'The Flume' and a summer and winter guide called 'Summer or Winter in the Park'. This is good information about attractions in the area. Google it online.

About Jaron Winston

I have always loved Colorado. We use to drive for 16 hours when I was in college just to spend a long weekend in the mountains. When my kids were growing up, we would all go and everyone loved the change of scenery from the hills of Central Texas to the majestic Rockies. When I told my family 'I don't know why I bought land and built a house in Colorado', my daughter reminded me 'Dad, you love Colorado, we always went there as kids'. It made perfect sense to her. I do love Colorado and so will you.

Jaron Winston purchased this house in 2009

Why Jaron Winston chose Bailey

Incredible. Overlooking the Lost Creek Wilderness with 180 degree unobstructed views of National Forest. Yet, only 1 hour from the big city and 1 1/2 hours from downhill skiing. You can't find beauty like this just anywhere.

What makes this house unique

7.4 acres of mountain property in a natural wilderness area with all the amenities of a modern home. Clean air, quiet, nature all around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A fantastic vacation. The house is amazing. A perfect spot to watch the sunrise, a lightning/hail storm move across the mountains, a magical rainbow, the full moon rise, fox, deer, birds, chipmunks but no mountain lion! We loved the hottub, hikes, kitchen, the dance party. We love the house! From guest book comment.

The most amazing vacation...ever!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was perfect in every way. I would give it ten stars if I could! I went with my family and stayed at this luxurious house for four nights and it wasn't long enough...we did not want to leave! When we first arrived at the house it was absolutely breathtaking. The views were simply amazing and unlike anything we have ever seen. The house was perfect and extremely well taken care of. We were greeted in such a friendly manner and were given a tour right away. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The description from the website was completely accurate, however, you really have to see it to believe just how beautiful this house and location really is. You can tell that the homeowner really takes pride in his house. Bailey, CO. is a perfect location and we were able to visit other cities without any problem. It is roughly an hour away from everything, which was not a problem at all because the drives were gorgeous. I would recommend this property over and over again! This by far was the best vacation we as a family have ever had. Thank you so much for allowing us to go into your home and enjoy a vacation like this. I can't wait to go back!

Nice house with an amazing view

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice but it is the view that makes it amazing. The layout is perfect and there is a ton of storage space. The weather was in the 40s everyday we were there so we used the hot tub all the time. One night a fox came up onto the back porch. We also saw around 100 deer during our stay!

The reason I didn't give the house 5 stars is because of the property manager. First of all she never returned a phone call. My husband called her a couples times asking her to call to answer some questions but she would only communicate by text or email. Then She originally emailed us that she would meet us at the house upon arrival. When we arrived in Colorado she texted us the code to the house saying she couldn't make it that day to the house. As a result we had to figure out everything ourselves (hot tub, tv, DVDs, wifi...). Also we found a dirty dusting rag on the stairs and what looked like pet hair everywhere.

All in all it was a nice stay and I would recommend the house.

This house/view is just what we were looking for to celebrate the Holiday with our family!! The first morning we woke up to snow!! It was absolutely gorgeous. The property manager was great to work with. We highly recommend this getaway to anyone that wants to relax and enjoy beautiful mountain views!

Stunning house & Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Family vacation that was spectacular! Our goal was to get away to relax and have no itinerary. This house is truly a treat - we loved every minute we were there. I never tired of walking into the living room and having the whole valley in site - beautiful! Jaron - thank you for sharing your house with us!

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at your beautiful home was the highlight of our summer! The location is remote, yet near so much. Our children (6 & 8) had so much fun - hiking literally out the back door with us! Thank you for the hospitality - we will surely return!
