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.

CAUTION: THIS LISTING IS NOT LEGITIMATELY ON CRAIGSLIST

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

PERFECT VACATION, YET AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
3rd trip to this amazing house in 1 year, and all I can say is Jarron, at some point you are going to get a phone call saying that you can't get us to leave :). When we finally got to the house this time, after a 2 hour delay at the airport, for tornado warnings, we were finally HOME!! All of the days stresses were erased once we walked into the house. Woke up each morning with the new hot tub, listening to wilderness and looking at those majestic mountains!! WOW! Again, life changing each time we are here! This view is impeccable to say the least, and the chipmunks that come out to play :) I couldn't recommend this more if it were my own home. The total serenity that captures you when you get a chance to look and BREATHE! The fresh pine air, the sounds of nature, the immaculate view. As I said before, Jarron, this was a life changing experience for my family, and we will visit for many more years to come. I couldn't be more grateful for you sharing your house with all of us, making our vacations purely relaxing and dreams coming true. The town of Bailey is exceptional, definitely try the winery, it's fantastic! The restaurant in town serves great burgers and unbelievable French Onion soup, and last but not least, the Cross-Roads in Pine Junction, great beverages and if you are a Reuben fan, it's one of the best I've ever had !! We will be back again this summer with just the husband and I, can't wait and will talk to you soon. Thank you again.

AMAZING COLORADO MOUNTAIN VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our grown sons and daugher-in-law shared a wonderful vacation with us at Big Rock House from June 6th thru June 17th. The boys climbed Mt. Bailey, hiked around the house, played golf at the course in Evergreen and took in some of the local bars and resturants while out sightseeing in the area. We cooked meals, enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings and loved the convenience of a beautiful home to enjoy the hot tub, local wildlife, and peaceful surroundings with amazing views from every window. If you are considering a vacation in this area you won't find a home that has more to offer than this one. It's a true gem in the mountains! Thank you Jaron for sharing your wonderful home with us and Sherrie & Sean for all your help while we were there.

BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
The property is absolutely stunning and has everything you could possibly want. We have 4 year old twins and a 12 year old and holidays are normally crazy and hectic trying to keep everyone entertained - this was the most relaxing week we have had in a long time and all the kids loved it to (the 12 year old had internet so he was happy). I fell in love with the views, they are beautiful from every aspect of the property. Will definately be back.

BEAUTIFUL VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We loved every minute of our stay. The house is very comfortable and the views are amazing. We hiked around the house and enjoyed the hot tub during a snowfall. We drove to Breckenridge and skiied/snowboarded one day. Sherrie and Sean were very welcoming and made sure that we felt right at home. We hope to return soon!

Big Rock Mountain House is just incredible. It is not only beautiful, relaxing and spiritual it is designed with detail, convenience and function in mind. It is our family's' gift to you to enjoy your time in the Colorado Mountains. It has an ideal location between Denver and the ski resorts. THERE IS NO LAND LINE TELEPHONE.
